Interaction with Guests
We love meeting and visiting w/ people from all over the world. We also know you enjoy your privacy, just as we do, so we can interact with you as much or as little as you like.
We live in a very rural area where most of the land is for cattle and horse grazing. Don't expect street lights and city blocks! If you are attending an event at the CLOVIS CASTLE, consider staying in our home as it is closer and more accommodating to your needs. The entrance to YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK is 75 miles away and KINGS CANYON/SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARKS West Entrance is 65 miles away. You can also visit any of the lakes and streams nearby, for fishing, boating and other water activities. Millerton Lake, Shaver Lake, Dinkey Creek, Huntington Lake, Courtright Resevoir, Wishon Reservoir, and Edison Lake are some of the nice areas to visit, as well. There is a lot of beauty along the way. We are also 2 1/2-3 hours from the beautiful Central California Coast!
As our home is in cattle country, and very rural, you will need to provide your own transportation.

I would like to just recommend the stay in Elizabeth and James house. It was really very pleasant stay. We felt there like we were at home. The breakfast and lunches to go was just perfect b/c Elizabeth is amazing cook. Elizabeth and James are amazing people at all. Thank you Liz for your warmth, kindness and all recommendation where to go. We would love to come again. Barbora with family
James and Liz couldn't have been better hosts for us during our stay with them. They were so warm and welcoming, and made us feel comfortable from the very moment we got there. The rooms were beautifully furnished and absolutely spotless. The food provided for breakfast was fantastic - very varied and freshly made. The garden, pool and bbq area were all open to us and we were encouraged to use them. Their local knowledge and maps they provided us were extremely useful. I really can't think of anything that would need to be improved. I wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay if I'm ever in the area again. Thanks again, Jon.
We really enjoyed our stay with Liz and James! They welcomed us into their home and really looked after us. The accommodation was as described and just perfect.
I have to admit, I was skeptical about the stay - the house seemed far away from a major town and I normally rent a full place everywhere I go. Needless to say, this was one of the best stays I have had - very comfortable and impeccably clean. The hosts are awesome, down to earth people who are genuine and fun to chat with. The breakfast was healthy and tasty.
My parents who were visiting the US took a picture with the hosts and will remember the stay as one of the best experiences in California, on par with visiting Yosemite or checking out Golden Gate.

Мы останавливались в этом доме с друзьями и их 2-летней дочерью всего на одну ночь, и наутро нам очень не хотелось уезжать! Прекрасный дом, словно сошедший с рождественских открыток, дружелюбные хозяева, деревенское спокойствие - все это было похоже на что-то среднее между турбазой (в хорошем смысле этого слова), санаторием и деревенским домиком любящей бабушки.
Я бронировала это место поздно вечером накануне нашего прибытия (практически в полночь) и не ожидала получить столь быстрый ответ. Помимо указаний, как проехать к дому, я получила советы по тому, как и где лучше поужинать (ближайшие кафе расположены в 15 минутах езды на машине), что тоже было нелишним. Еще одним удобным моментом было то, что хозяйка быстро отвечала на смски - это более удобный способ получения информации, если не очень уверенно чувствуешь себя при разговорах по телефону при неважном качестве мобильной связи.
Классический американский завтрак с оладьями, домашним клубничным вареньем, жареным беконом и домашним же кофе - намного более приятное и сытное добавление к и без того замечательной ночевке, чем стандартные отельные завтраки, а также интересный опыт.
На заднем дворе есть бассейн, гамак, барбекюшница и детские качели - жаль, мы не успели вкусить все удовольствия от пребывания...
With my friends and their child we've stayed in this place for one night and didn't want to leave: this place is so lovely, owners are so friendly and county is so peaceful. It is the perfect place to stay if you wish to spend some time in a country-side, enjoying its slow, peaceful harmony. It is also a good place if you are traveling to nearby National Parks.
I've booked it late eve (actually, at midnight) of our arrival and didn't expect to receive such a quick response from owners, but I've got it in 30 minutes! That's incredible. Next day I've also got some helpful instructions on how to find this house and where to dine.
The house is very nice, it looks like Christmas postcard! Thought we were very tired on the evening of our arrival, we couldn't stop looking on all the interesting things located in the living room! It is always a pleasure - to see well-maintained, tasteful furnished house.
Breakfast was delicious, especially home-made pancakes and strawberry jam!
Thank you, Elizabeth and James! God bless your home and your family!
La maison de famille de James et Liza est très accueillante et chaleureuse, impeccablement tenue et confortable. Nous avons apprécié les conseils et les attentions de Liza lors de notre séjour. La chambre est vraiment très calme avec une grande salle de bain privative.
What a lovely place to stay! The feeling was warm and a home away from home. James and Elizabeth provided clear and concise instructions from where we came from and provided up with hospitality above and beyond we would have ever expected. The room and amenities were very clean. Our travels to Yosemite were made easier as Elizabeth took time to explain what we needed and where to go. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this as a place to stay!

About the Host, James & Elizabeth
We have enjoyed the privilege of being able to live AND make a living in this lovely hill country setting for the past 26 years. James owns and operates his printers' service business from this location. We've raised our four children here and now enjoy having our grandchildren come for visits.
We love the outdoors and some of our hobbies are gardening, camping, backpacking, music, (James plays guitar), quilting, cooking, EATING, and traveling. We are actively involved with our mountain community church where we have the blessing of studying the Bible, praying for and encouraging each other.
Airbnb has been a great avenue to be able to share our home and offer our hospitality with the restful atmosphere that we've experienced in other B&Bs here in the US and abroad in Europe.
