Elliott House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Shaver Lake B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 October 2010

My wife and I just spent a great weekend at the Elliot House B&B in Shaver Lake. It was everything we had hoped for in a good B&B. Quaint, quiet, very clean, and a fresh delicious gourmet breakfast each morning. They also put out complimentary wines and appetizers each afternoon made fresh on site. When we booked we opted for one of the less expensive rooms (The Dogwood) and we were very surprised by it's decor and ambiance. It had a real chalet feel to it with pine walls and large windows looking out to the trees. The proprietors, Joanne & Greg are hands on people that go the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay for their guest. They will gladly chat with you as much or as little as you like. They provide off street parking behind the cabins and once you park you can walk to just about everything you'll need. This is not a "schill". Until I reserved our room about a week ago I had never heard of Elloitt House or had any acquaintance with Joanne & Greg. Very romantic and perfect for a birthday or anniversary. Mike & Peggy Cook

We’ve just recently had a wonderful stay at The Elliott House Bed and Breakfast located in Shaver Lake, CA.
 It’s so refreshing to stay somewhere where service is everything. Greg and Joanne Elliott are passionate about making sure you feel welcome. They tend to your every need – they are the perfect host and hostess. The rooms are gorgeous. We stayed in the Sequoia Suite, it was quaint, charming, and beautifully decorated – just perfect. The wine and appetizer evening was wonderful and the breakfasts’ are absolutely delicious. They even prepared a special breakfast to meet our dietary needs.

The Elliott House is memorable, lovely, special, unique, and truly wonderful. We look forward to staying at The Elliott House again very soon.

Thank you, Keith and Helen H.

My wife and I drove from San Francisco to Shaver Lake on Monday 18th January down to Fresno County and then up into the Sierra Mountains. The weather was dreadful on the way with rain and wind but as we got up at about 4,500ft this turned to wet snow. Then as we arrived in Shaver Lake to stay at the Elliott B & B the snow moved in. We should not have worried about the lack of snow prior to this day as over the next 6 days there was almost enough snow to last a life time.
We arrived at the location at about 1pm and noting the policy of the B & B about arrivals before 3pm we entered the Hungry Horse for a snack, the prices should have indicated the quality which was not good. We then went to the Elliott B & B at around 2-30pm to find it locked but a phone call brought the owner Greg Elliott to the facility within 10 minutes, despite the snow fall which was accumulating and had already got to a depth of 6 inches. We had the Sugar Pine Suite booked until the 24th January at a total cost of $1,078-00c for the stay which included Breakfast and also Drinks and Canapes at 5pm each evening.
The room was very cosy and had a separate jacuzzi and shower etc with gas heating from a gas log fire. There was also Wi Fi but we lost this for some 19 hours on the Tuesday because the system was not rebooted correctly by the owners.
After unpacking we went to the 5pm drinks and canapes and met with other guests and the proprietors Greg and Joanne Elliott. This was very enjoyable and because of the continuing heavy snow we did not venture out that evening. Tuesday saw us having Breakfast but still a little confused on the 8am continental breakfast as opposed to the 8-30am Full American Breakfast, we are still not absolutely sure if it is one or the other and we really do like our cereal with milk in the morning prior to the American Breakfast.
We then went walkabout as we could no longer see our car in the parking lot as it was buried under feet of snow. We had lunch in Angelos and met some very nice people there, again after drinks and canapes on the evening went to the Short Horn Bar and met so many nice folks including Vanessa the lady serving our needs at the bar and food wise.
Wednesday saw us digging our car out and it was frustrating that there was no snow clearance equipment other than a shovel and brush, luckily one of the neighbours came down and kindly dug us out. Wednesday evening was another visit to the Short Horn after drinks and canapes at the Elliott B and B.
Thursday came the disaster when the power was off and we had candles and lamps from that afternoon onwards. Romantic yes but as this was to last until we left it lost some of its romance after the 3rd day.
But we muddled through but of course had no Wi Fi but we still had hot showers heating from the propane gas log fire and the wine still tasted good at the 5pm drinks.
On the evening we went to the Trading Post who had a generator and despite lighting problems the meal was excellent with the best Hallibut we have ever had in any place around the world.
And the snow just kept on falling and it was obvious there was difficulty in keeping the roads open due to the amount of snow and the falling trees. Promises on restoration of power evaporated with each and every morning and evening. Again Friday we visited the Trading Post with limited menu but again nice people and good grub.
The Saturday saw us loose hours on the road to the Sierra Ski resort which was so inundated that we could not get within two miles of the place, we then returned and drove down to Clovis really just to unfreeze our car which had been buried each and every day we were in Shaver Lake.
We returned in the evening with again no power but the nice people in the filling station charged our phones whilst we ate at the Wahtoke Grill and Bar and had some excellent Fish and chips.
We were packing up on the Saturday which again is somewhat difficult in limited lighting but we managed to do this and kept the car in a hotel car park opposite which made it a lot easier to recover. Eggs Bennedict for Breakfast at the Elliott B & B was excellent despite the lack of power. We departed at just after 8am on the Sunday morning with power still out and it remained so until we believe Friday of this last week 29th January.
All in all a beautiful place giving so much snow and scenery delight it is difficult to describe adequately the total picture.
Despite the lack of lighting Wi Fi and our not being able to use the jacuzzi etc there was no offer of a reduction from the Elliotts which was surprising as although not their fault the offer would have been a nice gesture in the circumstances.
We would endorse Shaver Lake as a wonderful place to visit for the scenery and the nice people there. This was our second to the area the last being many years ago during the summer.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on the way to pick up our kid from Gold Arrow Camp. We stayed in the Marie Suite which is NOT a part of the Elliot's cute red house. It is a guest house behind a big house in a high-end development of huge vacation homes. Our suite was very sweet indeed -- super clean, lovely linens and bath products, soothing music playing when we arrived. I would say it was almost luxurious! And a bargain. Breakfast was not included since it was offsite from the Elliot house but that was fine by us because Shaver Lake has cute little eateries.

We drove up to Shaver Lake to pick our daughter up from Gold Arrow Camp just down the road. For some reason the Elliott House representative would not give us end to end directions on how to get to the inn. We had to call five times each as we reached different landmarks. When we arrived we did not have a room on site, rather is was about a half mile back up the road at a place called Drakes' Landing.
This room, and the one next to it, amounted to an addition on the back of a local house. The sitting room and bedroom room were probably completed in the last year, so everything was new. The furniture was nice but not distictive. Bathroom was spacious and clean.
We paid $199 all in.
