Welcome to Rainbow Tarns Bed & Breakfast
Over 70 Years of History!
Situated between Bishop and Mammoth Lakes, on the eastern side of California's High Sierra Mountains, is the quiet and secluded wilderness estate of Rainbow Tarns. Located just one mile from the tiny community of Tom's Place, you enter into a wonderland with green meadows (complete with grazing sheep), rugged high desert hillsides and finally, enchanting meadow ponds (tarns) shaded by Aspens, Willows, Poplars and Pine trees. Feel free to visit the pages in this site, then indulge yourself by visiting us in person.
In these trying economic times we want to do our part to help in economic recovery. These packages will be in effect during all of 2013, excluding holidays*.
The seasons here are unlike other parts of California, as Rainbow Tarns enjoys 4 full seasons. This is due to its ideal elevation.
The Tarns may be frozen over on some days but when they are not you can still see fish breaking the surface as they rise to feed. All around us there is snow so you can cross country ski or snow shoe through the meadow or up the canyon where you will find good sleading areas too. Or you can head to Mammoth for the best down hill skiing and snow boarding in the West. If you want to escape the snow you can head down to Bishop where you can fly fish on the Lower Owens River, climb through the bluffs in search of indian petroglyphs or play golf at the Bishop Country Club.
