A Room with a View

3.4 on August 08, 2016

Not your typical BnB but I'd read about it beforehand, so I knew what to expect. The property is lovely - secluded, quiet, beautiful views, and lots of wildlife hanging around to commune with (deer and adorable kittens). The owners welcome you, offer valuable tips on how to navigate Yosemite, provide a picnic lunch (if pre-ordered) to enjoy at nearby Bass Lake, and then they disappear, making clear you can reach them on site if needed. That meant...privacy! We had Room 1. This is not a fancy or luxurious spot, mind you, but it sure felt comfy and relaxing. Our view was spectacular, we had a hot tub, and the deck was glorious. The room itself was spacious, with cabin-like decor. The location was perfect - completely secluded, yet minutes from town. The drive to Yosemite Valley was about an hour and twenty, but it's a gorgeous drive from the moment you enter the park. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Room 1--May 20-22, 2016

Spent 3 nights in Room 1 and we enjoyed the amenities (private deck and spa). The view of Oakhurst and surroundings couldn't have been better. The small fridge was filled with fresh fruit & other breakfast items. Along with the muffins and cereal option this food arrangement worked perfect for us. In the bathroom area, it took time for the water to get hot and felt bad to waste water waiting for a warmer temperature.

Totally Awesome

It was a very relaxing, quiet get away weekend, and when we got to Vulture's View Bed and Breakfast, we could not be happier. The room was spacious, clean and the views made my eyes very happy. Lots of birds and some dear. We met Judy who runs the B&B, very lovely lady, full of information. I really like the breakfast, Judy had our refrigerator full of juice, fruit, muffins, milk and cereal. Very easy to take with you on our day out and about. I will gladly tell everybody of our great experience. And after a long day out, we had the hot tub to come back to and just totally relax and unwind. Thank you Judy and Vulture's View B&B.

Perfect End to Our Trip

Vulture"s View was at the end of five weeks travel in North America. We were delighted with our three nights there. Judy's advice on what to see in Yosemite was invaluable. She was the perfect host. Apart from providing a very healthy breakfast, she was kind enough to provide some beautiful pecan pie when we arrived, then more the next night. Bathing in the hot tub outside room one was restful, and we were able thoroughly enjoy looking up at the night sky and down onto Oakhurst. There was a great supply of towels, both for the bathroom and the hot tub.

Outstanding place

first B&B I did not enjoy

1.8 on August 07, 2014

Up on arrival we were greeted by an untidy lady,she gave us some instructions and I said ok , Then she said choose a muffin flavor for that will be your breakfast,we make coffee in the a.m. but the coffee creamer was bad and curled our coffee. I also asked about the the famous vulture view and she said"you can not see it , you get what you paid for and we were no even allowed to walk the area.So we boringly fell asleep by 9;00p.m. Next morning she was outside with a check book and refunded me because she had charged my Visa for 2 days and we thought we paid with visa for only one.I have topay my Visa card double stay plus tax, an extra 20.00 for 1 day stay and interest on the card of course. What a Vulture,stay at a hotel in town.

Innkeeper Response
That day I had two guests check in before noon. Lupe was one set. My check in time is 4pm. and check out is 11am. One hour is not enough time to get 2 rooms cleaned. but I managed to have theirs ready. The other rooms were occupied and The other guests need their privacy., She made the reservation for 2 days. She made a mistake but I rectified it with a refund. One night stays are too demanding in our drought. We all have to conserve water, that is why it is $20.00 more for a one night stay.

Charming B&B

Judy is a very nice person, who gave us a warm welcome in her B&B. The room was very nice and clean! Judy gave us a lot of information about Yosemite Park. We've had a great stay at the Vulture's View B&B. Kind regards, Arend and Grietje The Netherlands

Do not expect your average B & B when you stay here. Quirky,eccentric even, but very comfortable with all requirements. Judy a font of knowledge on Yosemite. A very pleasant stay. Car essential.

Great Place

Our host, Judy, was welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable. I loved the view of the forest and the town of Oakhurst, and enjoyed watching the wildlife like deer and cats. One of the cats was even friendly, a big plus. Checkout was simple- I did not even have to use a TV.
