Ravensbrook Bed and Breakfast

A Romantic Getaway close to Yosemite!

Quiet, secluded B&B located on the edge of 100 acres of National Forest, this B&B gives you all the comforts of home--and more!--against the backdrop of magnificent Yosemite National Park. Enjoy private accommodations, a spa under the stars overlooking a large pond that attracts regional wildlife and gourmet breakfasts to please very palate.

Ravensbrook is a secluded B&B close to Yosemite National Park & Chukchansi Casino, located on four and a half acres with 100 acres of Federal Forest surrounding the beautiful mountain property. Stately oaks and pines surround our pond creating a beautiful setting for the spa located on the second floor deck, overlooking the pond, where you can soak under the stars. Wild flowers and other flowering foliage carpet the hillsides.

Guest accommodations are located on the first floor with a private dining room just for the guests. You will begin each morning with a gourmet breakfast guaranteed to please every palate.

Each room has its own bath, private entrance, Dish TV/VCR and local phones. The refreshment area is located between the suites, and includes videos, games, books, snacks and beverages, microwave oven, refrigerator and laundry facilities.

A guest deck is located just outside the bedroom doors or enjoy the other private areas on the spacious grounds, including a picnic area, swing for 4 and meditation garden. Because of its uniqueness, Ravensbrook is the place for 2 couples or a family to book both rooms, so it's like having a vacation cottage all to yourself!

This charming B&B is located 18 miles south of Yosemite National Park's most popular gate, close to Mariposa Grove and Glacier Point. Seven miles south is Chukchansi Gold Resort, for gaming and/or dining. This Indian resort also features big name entertainment and a spa. Two miles from Ravensbrook you can dine at the 5-star/5-diamond Erna's Elderberry House at the world-famous Chateau du Sureau.

Rob Ruby wrote on May 10, 2010: My wife & I stayed at Ravensbrook in August 2009 to celebrate our anniversary. What a great place; close to Yosemite, food was great, highly recommend anyone wanting a change from the usual hotel/motel.

Sharon & Dan Bullene (Three Rivers) wrote on May 06, 2010: Beautiful setting near the south gate to Yosemite. We had a fabulous breakfast and a wonderful visit with Sherri.

Steve Miller wrote on May 03, 2010: I have been to several meetings and parties held at Ravensbrook and enjoyed the atmosphere and the hand made goodies. Sherri has an idyllic setting back off the main road, with the forest and pond as a back drop. Sherri does her own cooking and her cookies and pastries are fantastic.

Susan Smith wrote on May 03, 2010: I have had the opportunity to experience the hospitality of Ravensbrook twice and look forward to another visit in June. The location is peaceful, the breakfasts a culinary delight in both presentation and taste, and your gracious hostess, also owner, operator, and chef, will make every effort to accommodate your special requests. The setting is perfect for an outdoor wedding or special event, with ample room for outdoor dancing and entertainment. Try it, you'll like it--in fact, you'll love it.

Linda wrote on May 02, 2010: I have been a guest of Ravensbrook several times. I have enjoyed myself every time. The rooms are very comfortable and the decor is lovely. Sherri is great. Her breakfasts are wonderful and she can accommodate all kinds of diets. Great location too!
