Place of Choice at Shaver Lake

3.6 on August 24, 2016

We've stayed here more than three times. Its a great place and probably the best in the area. We did notice that the quality of the homemade desserts dropped from the last time we visited a year ago. Also, the breakfasts are homemade and great. However, they really need to offer a healthy option and accommodate other diets. Particularly if you like to eat vegan or healthy. The one size fits all doesn't work paying this kind of price. A simple healthy oatmeal option or egg white scramble would satisfy most. THEY REALLY NEED TO THINK THROUGH THIS ISSUE AND START OFFERING A HEALTHY OPTION OF HIGH QUALITY. Otherwise, no other issues here.

Innkeeper Response
We do the very best we can to accommodate all of our guests in every way. Those with dietary needs that are out of the norm can be a challenge to please. If we know in advance, in this case we were not told prior to check-in, it helps us cater to their needs. Our made from scratch recipes and desserts are our specialty and normally a highlight of the happy hour and after dinner. We have never received negative comments about them.

Welcoming spot

Great room and food. The owners were friendly and ready to help with anything needed. They thought of lots of small details to make the stay comfortable. We would go back again.

Innkeeper Response
A long time ago we realized details are of utmost importance. We have been open 16 years and have had lots of time to prefect our little B&B. We look forward to your next visit if you find your way back to our quaint resort village in the Sierra Nevada mountains.


Wonderful stay

We were staying in the area to participate in a race but the Elliott B & B was a wonderful surprise--a great room with beautiful surroundings. A good pleasant experience! Because of the race we missed the breakfast but hope to get it next time.

Innkeeper Response
Glad you enjoyed your stay at Drake's Landing. Winning the race for your division was better than breakfast!


A great place to stay and great food!

We loved our 5 night stay at the Elliott House B&B! Our suite was perfect and the breakfast and late night cookies and sweets were far above the rest. The inn keepers were so pleasant and helpful with things to do in the area (of which there are so many things to see and do). We look forward to staying there again next year!


Very nice stay

Great convenient location. Lovely, romantic, comfortable room. Friendly hosts. We would highly recommend and would stay at the Elliott House B&B again.


July 4th Weekend

3.2 on July 07, 2016

Great place to stay. Our first night was spent upstairs. I assume the area is having higher than normal temps because it was probably mid to high 80's that night with poor ventilation. The fan provided did not work well, we spent the majority of the night in misery. I would recommend a window fan to pull the outside (cooler) air in. The second night we were moved into the nicer Sequioa Suite. The additional Windows , ceiling fan (although it squeaked all night) and high ceilings made for a much more comfortable evening. The Inn Keepers are very professional and take a lot of pride in their property. My only suggestion is to periodically check on the functionality of ceiling fans (the one in our suite squeaked all night) and pedestal fans (the one that didn't work well). Also maybe dust off outside cushions (chair) more often. Overall a great stay!

Innkeeper Response
It can get into the 80's certain days in the summer. The fan we provided was a new addition to your room. We apologize if it was still not cool enough for you. As for the squeaking fans, both were replaced and no longer make any noise at all.

The place we stayed was tucked in a quite spot just a short distance from the main house with all the amenities for a comfortable short stay. The place was clean and the host were quite a love pair (not sure if they were a couple)..The breakfast was awesome and the little afternoon desserts very enjoyable. We'll be back soon!


Great place to stay!

Sweethearts getaway

4.2 on June 09, 2016

We stayed at the Elliott House Bed and Breakfast for a sweethearts getaway. The locations was so quaint, quiet and beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised. Joanna and Greg were wonderful, welcoming, informative hosts. The sugar pine room was such a cute, clean, cozy and comfortable. The only comment I would have is the bed was due for a replacement. Overall we had the most wonderful time. Thanks to Joanna and Greg.

Innkeeper Response
You are right - this location in the Sierra is quiet and quaint, like no other. We have loads of information to share with our guests of all that is going on in this resort area so you feel comfortable and informed. As for the Sugar Pine bed, we just purchased that a few months ago and have not heard this comment from anyone else but be assured we will look into it. Thank you for staying with us!
