The Good: Extremely warm winter days. Décor was interesting, especially the canopy bed, reminded my wife of when she was a little girl... Classical music in the room, perfect selection. The garden view was nice but we had to keep the shutters down for privacy from other outside guests and the gardeners in the evening and morning. The breakfast (not... More

Chateau du Sureau is a Five Diamond Resort and it shows at every turn you make, from the service of the staff to the amazing comforters. This is our fourth time staying at the Chateau du Sureau. Usually when you go back to a resort you can see that it is a little older and they just don't give the... More

Erna (the lady who owns this place) is clearly someone who is extremely passionate about what she does, and it shows. The decor, the service, the rooms-everything is classic French Chateau style. From the time we entered through the majestic gates, to be greeted by our gracious host, to the time we drove out-bumping into Erna herself, it was an... More

We are overdue our review of our stay at the chateau. It was an unexpected but amazing splurge while on our family car trip with infant son and two large dogs. We arrived at the Chateau very late at night, in a rain storm, in off season, and were welcomed with open arms and umbrellas. Everyone couldn't have been kinder.... More

As a compliment to Erna's Elderberry House in Oakhurst, CA (a mountain town East of Merced), this highly European influenced chateau delivers a getaway experience quite different from your usually B&B or inn. Built in 1991, each room is different in character, but probably similar in restrained elegance. This is a 5 diamond / 5 star hotel that is very... More

There are many reasons to explore Yosemite, but among the most compelling should be a stay at the nearby Chateau du Sureau in Oakhurst. There are not enough superlatives to describe our recent visit. It is an exceptional inn, an absolute treat in every way. From our gracious welcome to our truly reluctant farewell, we were cared for and pampered... More

We stayed at Chateau du Sureau as part of my wife's 60th birthday celebration week. Aside from the excellent and charming lodging as well as associated restaurant, which you would expect from a Relais & Chateaux rated property, the staff and surroundings make it a must stay place if you are going to visit Yosemite. Indeed,the staff knew about my... More

My husband and I just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at the Chateau du Sureau, and now we know why it is listed in the book, "1000 Places to see before you die." We stayed two nights - Friday night was "just the room" which does come with breakfast, and Saturday night "Full Board." We are extremely grateful for Erna's... More

My wife and I first encountered Chateau du Sureau through its restaurant, The Elderberry House, in 2011. We were staying at a near-by b&b, had spent the day in Yosemite and were primed for a good dinner. We were not disappointed. I had called to make a reservation and when we arrived, 2 of the staff were waiting outside the... More
