My husband and I recommend the Joseph House Inn, a half-block off Highway 395 in Bishop, Calif., the best B&B we've experienced. This beautiful five-bedroom inn is set on 3 acres in a garden, designed with an artistic eye.
Myriam and her mother, Hilde, understand hospitality. They are charming and experienced with people who relish comfort at the end of a day — or a few days or weeks — of travel.
Joseph House Inn, 376 W. Yaney St., Bishop; (760) 872-3389, http://www.josephhouseinn.com. $135 a night Sundays-Thursdays, Nov. 1-March 30, based on two-night minimum. Holidays and weekends $143-$168 per night.
