Penon Blanco

5 on June 17, 2013

We just needed to get away for a weekend and this place was perfect. A bit remote, but not hard to get to... beautiful view, comfy bed and a delicious breakfast made by our hosts, the owners. If wed stayed longer we could have gone to Yosemite-- its not far. My only regret is that we didn't choose the Lookout Room or the suite, since those rooms had better views than ours. Next time.
