Nice, comfortable bed and breakfast. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. It is located in the quaint historical area. Close by is a movie theater and some nice walking trails and hiking. Breakfast was exceptional!

This inn was immaculate and well run on our previous trips when it was managed by the former owner. From the moment we walked in the door this time it was clear that it is now a differently run inn. Our room was not clean. The bedspread was dirty. The carpet was dirty. The chairs had crumbs on them. Our... More

I'm truly sorry that you felt this way on your visit to the Bradford Place Inn. While it's true that the last owner did not have dogs and I have two friendly dogs, it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone as they are listed on the website as well as the confirmation email which you received. I do not... More

Very comfortable old inn with interesting antiques and player pianos that the owner will be happy to demonstrate for you. Breakfast was awesome!! Be careful - the owner can be too friendly and not leave you to yourselves.

From the tailored rooms, quietly musical surrounding of the estate, to the host's Eli tailoring of a home-cooked skillet breakfast we loved each hour spent in Sonora and day-tripping to Yosemite by virtue of this haven in the foothills.
