About John Bevington
I was born and raised in Yosemite and have wonderful memories to share about growing up there. Memories of watching the fire fall from my front yard in the Ahwahnee meadow, learning to rock climb from now famous Royal Robbins and Warren Harding. It was a great place to grown up. My wife is a city girl from LA and moved to Mariposa in 1988.
John Bevington purchased this Barn in 2013

Beautiful setting with generous hosts
Today is our last day at the Red Barn Inn - sadly it is time to leave this welcoming place and the beatiful Yosemite. As other reviewers have mentioned, we were greeted with a welcome basket of local wine and treats. The house has everything one needs for a comfortable stay and to cook family dinners (which we did several times). The Barn is located on the gorgeous grounds, with massive boulders scattered among grasses and wild flowers. The view from here is very peaceful. We had trouble with our GPS the first night and John and Lisa kindly drove up to the main road to meet us and guide us. But in fairness it was our mistake that we couldn’t understand our GPS. We mentioned to John that we loved the purple trees that we saw blooming all over the area, and that night a small potted red bud tree was waiting for us - we can’t wait to plant it in our yard in the Bay Area.
The town of Mariposa is only 5 min away and has several really good restaurants. We drove to Yosemite twice: first going north to enter on hwy 140, and then south (thru Oakhurst) to enter thru Wawona. Both routes offered amazing sites and hikes along the way.
Overall, the Red Barn Inn was a great base for our Yosemite expeditions, and we hope to come back soon.
We had a fantastic stay, didn't want to leave!
We couldn't have felt more at home, very welcoming, very detailed, all the little touches, we didn't want to leave!
Thank you for the welcome basket, cookies, chocolate and lovely bottle of Cabernet! Wow!
We will certainly be back again!
Such a great place, so much attention to detail! So lovely!
Let me just tell you that not only is it a great place to discconect and meditate, but it is so well taken care of. The place is inmaculate . so clean and homie. They welcome you with a lovely kit with treats and wine :) and have everything you’ll ever need while you are there, extra sheets, towels, blankets, even eye make up remover, a cooler to take with you, mosquito spray, emergency kit, sandwich bags , you name it! if that does not tell you how much attentioned they put into the place ... not sure what will. Mariposa is just near by (4 min drive), we saw deers rosming adound by the house every night coming back :)
the owner is very nice and stopped by to see if we needed anytging without being intrusive. He was very pleasant and funny. I would extremely recommen it, by far one of the best home away stays we have ever had. Thanks guys for making this a special stay!
Comfy and everything you need
Really cute and cozy, it had everything we needed and was perfect for two people. They really thought of everything, After spending the day hiking in Yosemite, it was a pleasure to come back to in the evening. It's close enough to downtown to go out to dinner, but tucked away in a quiet neighborhood to enjoy some solitude and nature.
Awesome! Perfect rental!
We absolutely loved it, it was perfect!
Inviting and Cozy
We had never been to the Yosemite area and did not know what to expect. We definitely knew that we wanted a relaxing and home-like place to land after our park excursions of each day. We have trusted Home Away in the past for dependable recommendations. We were not disappointed.
On arrival, the exterior was well manicured. Inside was fresh and new. John greeted us shortly with genuine hospitality. He made some dining recommendations that were A1. He also shared the story of how the Red Barn Inn came to being. He and Lisa have put many personal touches into this barn from remodeling to decorating and supplying with amenities. Nothing is left out.
We would recommend Red Barn Inn for anyone seeking personal touches for an enjoyable , safe and cozy (also romantic) experience.
