My partner and I spent two nights in late July in the Madera room. Big Creek Inn is about as close as you can get to Yosemite National Park without actually staying in the Park. Initially I'd hoped to stay in the park but it was extremely pricey. Funnily enough, I'm glad the cost of in-park accommodation pushed us out... More

My husband I stayed for two nights mid July in the Queen bedroom. The room was large, very clean and very comfortable. The Inn couldn't be much closer to Yosemite. A perfect location. The Innkeeper is a doll and extremely knowledgeable about the park. We followed her suggestions every day and found the suggested daily itinerary perfect for us. Included... More

The location is ideal, allowing you to go into the park and then veer off west rather than staying in one of the lodgings on the valley floor. Allows you to see the real life of the people of Yosemite - Pamela saved us hours in trying to fond the best spots and was delightful to chat to. The personal... More

We've been here for two nights in July 2015; it's located about two miles' distance from Yosemite's south entrance but it's already in the park (as you can see from lots of trees at the edges of the road on the way to the Inn). Pamela was waiting for us at the door and she welcomed us in her beautiful... More

Ideally located, very close to the park entrance and easy to find. Pamela is very helpful and accommodating, her level of hospitality is unmatched. She has great insight into hiking in the park, offering advice on trails, peak traffic times, and weather. Wonderful and quality breakfast spread - freshly prepared eggs, sausage, bacon, mini pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, coffee,... More

We went to Yosemite from Death Valley for part of our Honeymoon in late May. Pam was waiting for us when we arrived around 7pm. She is very welcoming and the house is immaculate. We stayed in the Merced room for 2 nights with 2 double beds and a large bathroom. We fed the stellar jays on our balcony with... More

We stayed at the Big Creek Bed & Breakfast for two nights in June, 2015. The owner, Pamela knew the area very well and gave us tips for our visit. Our room had two double beds with a big bathroom. Everything was clean with no room issues. Pamela had peanuts available so that you can see the stellar jays fly... More

This reviewer removed the first review that he posted following the publication of our management response. This edited review has now been posted, and the reviewer’s objections regarding buffets in general are now focused on his dissatisfaction with me. I obviously made a mistake in not preparing eggs to order for this guest, and I defer to my original response... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Madera Room, which is the one in the middle. Pam was very welcoming, and the house itself was super clean! I was a little worried about hearing the guests next to us, but we did not hear a single sound throughout the night (it almost looks like they soundproof it or something). I... More

Thank you, James. It was a pleasure meeting you and your friends. We appreciate you commenting on how quiet our rooms are. Prior to opening (almost 15 years ago!), we reduced the size of each room by about 4 inches when we added additional insulation to the common walls of each room. The loss of space is well worth the... More

We stayed in the spacious Mariposa Room with a king bed and two-room bathroom (one for the toilet and one for the bath). It was very clean and spacious. The large selection of DVDs made for a fun movie night each night after a lovely day in Yosemite. Pam, the owner, is wonderfully helpful in planning out a day in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in May-15. Arriving mid afternoon, we had a most friendly welcome from Pamela the owner who instantly suggested places to visit for the rest of the day, ordinarily we would have just relaxed in the room but so glad we took her up on her advice! We basically just did everything... More
