Yosemite Rose Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 6 Groveland B&B and Inns

Reviewed 12 October 2016

We stayed in the Katherine room, which was a bit more private from the other rooms. It was very large, two sinks in the bathroom, a sitting area in the bedroom and another small area before you walk into the bedroom, plenty of plugs, large closet and two suitcase stands. I tell you all this, because it's important when traveling to have enough space for all your stuff. We were in CA for over a week, so we had a lot packed.

But all that is NOTHING. The breakfast was more than amazing! Scelestia, the owner, cooked something different every day (we stayed for 4 nights) and with fresh, local ingredients packed with love and originality. You might pack on a few lbs., but it's WORTH it. Let me give you a small glimpse of what I'm talking about. Sourdough french toast with a chardonnay and blueberry compote, a side of chicken sausage, an orange wheel with a lovely spring of fresh lavender that was hand picked from their garden that morning. That's not it...fresh pears and rasberries to start and fresh OJ and coffee on the table.

Overall, the hospitality was just delightful, the home was warm, charming decor with a library and piano room, and a room walled with all the families military history. We were also greeted by several dogs and one cat. If you're an animal lover then you will appreciate the furry companionship. You can also hear owls at night and horses and cows nearby. It's close to the entrance of the park too.

I will miss our home away from home! Thanks for such a beautiful experience Scelestia!

Room Tip: The Katherine room has a bit more privacy

This is a gem of a B&B. Comfortable, low key, lovely hosts. Location is quiet and beautiful! We loved spending time with their dogs and Ms. Dora, the cat. Breakfast was wonderful! And we appreciated the afternoon teat when we arrived. Location is great for those going to Yosemite. Highly recommend!!

This is a great place to stay. It was recommended to me by a colleague when I mentioned that I was thinking of staying in Groveland for our trip to Yosemite.

We really enjoyed our time here. It's a short drive to Yosemite, and the town has some good food options for dinner.

We enjoyed our breakfasts, and the cakes and evening drinks are a lovely touch.

The house itself is lovely, and is set in very quiet and peaceful grounds. The sky at night is amazing. Bring a camera - I don't think I have ever seen the milky way so clearly.

We felt very welcome and encouraged to use the house during our stay.

I would definitely stay here again if we were to stay in the Yosemite area.

Highly recommended.

This is probably the best bed and breakfast that my wife and I have ever stayed at. The breakfasts were excellent, and they gladly made accommodations for dietary restrictions. The afternoon pastries, brandy and desert wine was a much appreciated bonus. The owners and staff were inviting and friendly. As animal lovers we appreciated seeing their assortment of dogs and cats which were kept outside to accommodate those guests with pet allergies. Our room, the "Edwardo", was located in their manor house and felt both comfortable and luxurious. It was reasonably close to Yosemite National Park which was the focus of our trip. My wife and I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone planning a visit to Yosemite Park or to those just seeking a quiet and relaxing place to get away from it all.

This was our first visit to Yosemite and we found this lovely B&B in Groveland. The B&B is about a twenty minute drive from the park entrance located at Big Oak Flat. Don't miss the scenery along this drive as you make your way to the park.

Their website suggests a route that avoids a long winding road. Unless you are a fan of this type of driving or don't care if you get stuck behind a truck or bus making its way along the winding road, take their alternative. We took their suggestion in but followed our GPS out so we experienced both.

The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. Our room had a ceiling fan which was nice for the cooler evenings and AC which was nice for the warmer nights. There was no TV in the room which did not bother us as they do have a TV, pool table and piano in common rooms open to the guests. There was a large walk in closet and a chest of drawers so storage is not a problem.

They have a wonderful library of resources about the park and the wildlife that come in very handy.

The breakfast was excellent. We were there for three mornings but only had the sit down breakfast twice becasue we decided to drive into the park one morning for sunrise. We told them were were doing this and they left a "to go" bag for us even though we left before 5am.

The regular breakfast turned into pleasant conversation with other guests on the screened-in veranda.

Upon returning from a day in the park, the B&B leaves brandy and port for a relaxing post wilderness drink.

Other things to note, our room was on the second floor, The Scelestia Room. If stairs are a problem for you I would ask for a room on the ground floor.

Because of a late cancellation, they upgraded our room at no extra charge, a very nice touch.

The staff was friendly and welcoming.

Groveland has limited dining options and distances to and from the center of the park are large. Gas your car up to be sure that you have enough as the distances between stations and their open hours can cause problems.

If you are so inclined, take some time after dark to step outside the hotel and enjoy the stars from the parking lot or outside the veranda. Bring a flashlight as it gets very dark on moonless nights.

We would definitely stay here again.
