Sugar Pine Suite

4.4 on April 14, 2017

Very friendly and kind couple. They were great at following up over the phone before the stay. They gave us the key and a tour and let us be. We stayed in the Sugar Pine Suite and it was very romantic. My new wife and I went here for our first night on our honeymoon and were very pleased. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful. Cheese omelets, sausage links and asparagus. There was a great selection of baked goods, coffee and teas also. All in all we felt this b&b deserved 5 stars! We plan to come back in the future as well as purchase gift certificates for friends and family.


Best B&B in central California!

Wonderful Romantic Getaway

5 on December 04, 2016

My fiancee and I had a couple days off for Thanksgiving and couldn't make it home to see family, so we wanted to get out of town together for a couple days. The Shaver lake area is beautiful, we went on a walk down to the lake (close to the B&B) in the evening and the following morning. The room was absolutely wonderful and Joanne and Greg were truly fantastic hosts. They are also wonderful cooks and breakfast was delicious. We are definitely looking forward to coming back again in the future.


I'll be back

Great people. Great breakfast. Good location. Squeaky bed. Worth the price of admission. I'll be back.


Right on a Busy Road, But Still Accomodating

4.0 on October 01, 2016

Very nice accommodations, but right on a very busy road. The food was good, but no offer of any selection. The owner was surprisingly unfriendly, which made me wonder why she would get into this business. luckily there were other guests to talk to that were friendly.


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.

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.
