Offering Queen's bed and Kings' breakfast, Helen's house is located in Fresno, California, 90 miles south from Yosemite and 90 miles west from Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. After the excursion of one national park and leave for another one, you can cool down yourself in the swimming pool in the back yard. If you travel from Los Angeles to northern California by car, this is the perfect place for staying overnight. The neighborhood is very clean and quiet area, which means you can sleep soundly without any noise except birds' chirping in the morning. The guest quarter consists of: a big bedroom, which is bright and clean ; own bathroom with a small refrig ; a very big living room furbished with a big screen TV, piano, etc. You will have a total privacy because it is located at the end of the house, separated from other rooms. There is even a separate entrance door to the street if you want to use it. Kitchen and laundry are open to use.
In the night, you can watch the star in the lighted (in the water) swimming pool and enjoy drinks around the pool after the refreshing dip. If you are not very tired after driving and if it is not too late, Helen always offers complimentary wine or cool beer with very tasty cheese and other goodies.
In the morning, you will have a healthy and abundant breakfast in addition to the fresh fruits. The breakfast includes special omelette, bacon (or chicken sausage or ham, whatever suits you), juice, and the very special toast smeared with avocado and pesto sauce.
Lastly, but not the least, Helen's house is only 1 mile (precisely 0.9 mile) from the highway 41, which means you don't need to drive local road too long in order to arrive here. Also, several important grocery stores are very near. You name it: Whole Foods, Trader Joe, Food Max, Save mart, etc. whatever suits your preference, which means you can refurbish your nutritional necessity anytime. They are all less than 5 minutes driving distance. So, why not visit Helen's place when you are in Fresno? Her dog, Oreo, is another addition to this welcoming place.

Helen provided a great greeting and hospitality on the evening of my arrival. The room had cool wallpaper and some original artwork. The bed was extremely comfortable. The next morning, we had a great breakfast. Helen and her family are world travelers, so it is interesting to share perspectives with her.
Helen was so friendly and made a wonderful breakfast for us so early In the morning! She worked around our schedules and was very hospitable. The room was clean and had good wifi
Helen was an amazing hostess. We arrived pretty late on a freezing winter night and she took us in and took care of us, even allowing us to sleep in a tiny bit in the morning despite being to leave for work. The room itself is spacious and the bed was perfect. Helen also made us wonderful food and shared her kimchi with us. Oreo was super cute as well. Thanks again Helen!
Helen was the sweetest host ever! When we first arrived she was so welcoming. She gave us wine, nuts, and imported cheese! She's so knowledgeable about places to see in the world, she's such great company. The even made us a huge breakfast in the morning and made us avocado and prosciutto sandwiches for the road :)
Also, The bed was soo comfortable, the place was still clean and cozy. It was perfect for my boyfriend and I. We would definitely stay here again :)
Helen (and her adorable dog, Oreo) was a joy to meet! We arrived later in the evening and she offered to make us dinner 5 minutes after we entered the house. It was fun just talking with her during breakfast and lunch. The bed was amazingly soft as well. Overall a wonderful experience.
My husband and I stayed with Helen after a day of skiing at China Peak. We arrived around dinner time on New Years Day, and she was kind enough to make us a traditional Korean New Year soup. She was a very gracious hostess, going out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our conversation with Helen over dinner/breakfast. We would definitely consider staying with her again.
Helen was a gracious hostess who made us feel very welcome and comftorable. She greeted us with some wonderful French cheeses and a bottle of wine which was an unexpected treat. The breakfast was as described and fit for a King. Thank you Helen, we will certainly stay with you again.
