    Quiet Surroundings


    When deciding where to stay in the Yosemite National Park area I looked at several different possibilities. The first was seeing if there was a Marriott facility nearby (there wasn't). Next was seeing what the facilities inside the park were like and what they cost (very nice and very expensive). So my third choice was to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. I rather like Bed and Breakfast places having stayed at 2 of them during trips in 2009, Sue feels a little uncomfortable being in someone's home and not helping to clean up but the price was right ($135 per night) and the distance was doable about 45 minutes from one of the parks entrances.

    We arrived mid-week around 6:00 p.m. for our 3 night stay after a somewhat harrowing ride down California Route 49. Mary Ellen, our hostess and owner, let us in, told us where everything was at and said our room was up the stairs on the left. After we settled in we went back downstairs where Mary Ellen had some wine and cheese awaiting for us. Sue and I were the only guests in the house for 2 out of the 3 nights (it was the off season), so we more or less had the run of the place.

    Unique Quality: There are 3 rooms upstairs along with a small common area and small refrigerator stocked with water, soda and even an iced tea. The website says there is another room downstairs, but on our visit I'm pretty sure that's where Mary Ellen stayed. She has another small place right next to the house where one of her son's stay. He helps out a bit along with another young lady who we just glanced.

    The breakfasts aren't too extraordinary (of course last year we were spoiled with a 3 course breakfast including dessert in Waynesville, NC), but are homemade and plentiful. Each day before we left Mary Ellen packed a little sack with some homemade cookies for us to take.

    In the living room area she has a number of books about the area and one which was personally autographed by Ansel Adams, who Mary Ellen knew.

    There is a hot tub just off the living room area. I wanted to try it out, but Sue opted to stay warm inside.

    Directions: About 5 miles outside of town on the way to Yosemite
