Guests and owners do not share any common areas. Guest parking is just down the street. Access is via a private stairway off of the road. The room and bathroom are small, but comfortable, and the private deck is amazing! Guests do not have access to the main home.
Interaction with guests
Access is self check-in via lock box. Because of the way the home is situated, you will most likely not cross paths with us unless you need us. If you are looking for a B&B with a host that is always on site and greets you at check-in, this is not the property for you. That being said, we always love meeting fellow travelers should the occasion arise.
Other things to note
As traveler's ourselves, we have made this space into exactly the type of place we would enjoy. We love finding unique places that are affordable, and we would definitely prefer a small room in a beautiful setting to a large room in a chain hotel.
No pets. No smoking or open flame on premises (we are in an extremely high fire danger zone). 2 Guests Maximum. Please read over entire listing for details about the space prior to booking.
As travelers ourselves, we have made "Ouzel Nest" into exactly the kind of place we would love to stay. I am a 6th generation local with extensive knowledge of the Yosemite area. We have also traveled coast to coast, driven the Alaska Highway, explored New Zealand by campervan, stayed in B&B's all over Ireland & Scotland, stayed in Airbnb's in Thailand and visited our share of tropical islands. I can tell you that if you love unique spaces in amazing places, you will love Ouzel Nest.
