Comfortable, Cozy, Gracious

4.6 on August 02, 2018

Comfortable and cozy atmosphere, well-kept property, beautiful landscaping, clean, neat, common areas for lounging inside and out. Lots of food and beverages 24/7. Gracious and accommodating hosts. Can walk to most restaurants, bars and shops. No complaints whatsoever.

Innkeeper Response
We truly appreciate hearing from you and that you enjoyed staying with us at our B&B. Making our guests happy and comfortable is our utmost goal. Think we achieved that. Please come back to visit one day. We would happily welcome you again.

drakes landing was perfect, no on site dining but was closer to Dinkey Creek

4.0 on July 31, 2018

Great, a restful night sleep before we joined family who were camping at Dinkey Creek

Innkeeper Response
We thank you for your comments. Unfortunately we are not able to include our guests who stay at Drake's Landing to our afternoon sweet time and our daily breakfast. To make up for that we have lower nightly rates there, which some people would rather choose. Also there are three restaurants very close that offer breakfast, so nobody goes hungry in the morning.

Fun

My husband and I enjoyed our brief stay! Lovely place!


weekend getaway

3.8 on July 04, 2018

We had a large family reunion and needed a place to sleep for the weekend. This was perfect! Comfy king-sized bed and bathroom with a shared living space that contained a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. It was clean and modern and nicely decorated...and central to everything in Shaver Lake. Will book again!

Innkeeper Response
The suites at Drake's Landing, Crazy Loon and Loose Goose, are so comfortable and delightfully decorated. It's a wonderful alternative to the other five suites at the main house. The main difference is the breakfast option. But if you are meeting up with friends and family in the area that is not a big deal for some. Thanks for staying with us! Hope to see you again.

Wonderful stay

4.8 on July 01, 2018

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eliot House. It was a great place to anchor our various day trips around the region. The hiking book in the breakfast room was a nice resource and the hosts were friendly and informative. I would strongly recommend this establishment.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. Shaver Lake is often the midpoint between Yosemite National Park and Sequoia/Kings Canyon visitors. Particularly for international visitors. It's a great alternative to staying down in the Valley below. At an elevation of 5,600 feet, you can enjoy our cooler weather, blue sky, and of course our lake activities in the summer. And our invigorating winter sports, including downhill and cross country skiing. Four our guests it is the best of both worlds. Thank you for choosing the Elliott House. We appreciate it and you!

Drake’s Landing-Loose Goose room

4.6 on June 30, 2018

Drake's Landing includes a common area and 2 Inn rooms that are not attached to the main Inn but a few minutes drive away. The nice shared common area includes 2 leather chairs, 2 cafe style breakfast tables, a microwave, coffee/tea, and mini fridge. The room and common area are nicely decorated, clean, comfy, and private. It is on the backside of a house but has it’s own separate entrance (enter through the common area) and we never heard the occupants of the house at all. Check in and out very easy. If want breakfast and to be right in the middle of the town’s restaurants you would need to stay in a main Inn room; but, if looking for something a bit more private, Drake’s Landing may work better for you. Highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
Drake's Landing is a very unique and cozy experience, unlike any corporate accommodations. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to welcome you back as a guest in the future.

Disappointed

2.2 on June 26, 2018

We stayed in a room at Drake's Landing. The room was ok, a bit stinky when we got there but was fine after opening the windows. Our complaint was that the TV didn't work. It was OLD, with DVD's. There was cable but the TV had lines going up the screen. After a long drive, all we wanted to do was rest comfortably and watch TV, but that was not enjoyable at all. We called the manager and she refused to adjust our $179 room charge even a little bit. In 2018, the expectation is that basic things like TV should be in good working order. Won't return there.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry your experience was not the best. The cable TV in the mountains is very limited service, as you might suspect. We are at 5,600 ft. elevation and don't have access to Xfinity and the like. At the B&B main house we have satellite (Dish) which works better than local cable. At Drake's Landing we can only get a cable signal unfortunately. We do not offer rebates for amenities that are not in our control. We hope that the magic of the spectacular outdoors makes up for the limits of technology.

Cozy Cute Place

A nice relaxing weekend here


Beautiful Getaway with my hubby

5 on April 03, 2018

My husband and I decided to take a last minute getaway to mountains and to ski. We were thankful to find one last room available for our trip for a couple days. The rooms are beautifully decorated and with a very cozy feel. It was a very romantic place to be with the one you love. Breakfast was absolutely amazing and we enjoyed the company of the owners. This is now our go to spot to vaca in Shaver Lake.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so very much for sharing your thoughts about our B&B. We truly appreciate it! Summers are fantastic with mild temps, blues skies and fun lake activities for everyone. We hope to see you again soon.

- Greg and Joanne (innkeeper)


Lovely stay in cozy B&B

5 on March 30, 2018

We recently stayed at the Elliott House during a ski trip. The room was cozy with a very comfortable mattress and pillows. Breakfast was tasty and got us ready for a long day on the slopes.

Innkeeper Response
Finally the snow came in March for China Peak. Hooray! Try a summer getaway perhaps. It is beautiful and lots of fun at the lake. Hope to see you again.
