Dear Friends,

Over the last month with quarantines, self isolation and social distancing now the norm we have been evaluating how to continue to best serve our customers, staff and community during this uncertain time. Uncertainty in when we can reopen the Queen’s Inn with safety and purpose in mind, we made the tough decision to wait until the CA governor deems it appropriate for all of us to operate our businesses.

So many of you have asked how you can help, we have been working to develop a gift certificate program through our website, which will be available for use throughout April 2021. Now you can purchase assorted offerings online for both the Queen’s Inn and Idle Hour Winery.

Sip. Stay. Savor & Play
Queen’s Inn by the River and Idle Hour Winery & Kitchen would like to invite you!
We are offering gift certificates at up to a 25% discount on overnight stays, Sunday brunch or private wine tastings. You can enhance your experience by adding certificates to build your package according to the kind of experience that you would like to enjoy, whether it be a romantic stay, friends getaway or a family vacation.

We realize as a business, we are a gathering place for our community and we take that as an honor and as a responsibility. We want to continue to do so and appreciate your concern and continuing support of Idle Hour & the Queen’s Inn.

We are open in the winery by appointment for wine pickup, please call 559-760-9090 to arrange wine pickup. Our hope is that, as with all things out of our control, we can all adjust accordingly. We strive to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our guests as well as our staff and look forward to raising a glass with you soon.

Warm Regards,
Deb Payne & Anna Marie dos Remedios
and the Queen’s Inn and Idle Hour Winery & Kitchen Staff



Our bar offers a selection of more than ninety premium wines, and an exciting selection of micro-brewed and imported beers.

Our picturesque beer garden is the perfect place to relax after a hard day at work or a full day of sightseeing. Listen to the sounds of the Fresno River and the many different types of wildlife that live on (and pass through) our property. You may even catch a glimpse of our resident beavers, rabbits and deer.

Great place to stay close to Yosemite! We made several new friends at the wine bar. Lovely location, very accommodating staff, and clean, spacious, attractive rooms. The local wine was delicious and my husband was impressed by their massive beer selection. We’ll be back.

When we tell you that your best friend should join you, we mean the four-legged ones are also welcome.

At Queen’s Wine Bar & Beer Garden, your well behaved pet is always welcome to join you. We have 5½ acres of riverside property that you and your ‘best friend’ can enjoy together. In consideration for other guests, please clean up after your pet, and keep them within your control at all times.

I love the atmosphere here – intimate space around the bar surrounded by large patio and the great outdoors by a creek.
