We were searching for a relaxing get away to celebrate our anniversary. We were so pleased to find the Bradford Inn in Sonora. Our rooms was very nice and we loved the extras like free movies on xfinity, comfy robes and towels, delish breakfast etc. We enjoyed playing board games with Eli the Innkeeper. We loved how the Inn is... More

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. The building has a natural splendor outside, and we found our room, The Prospector's, such a cozy delight. Eli was nothing... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Bradford Inn, which is conveniently located to everything. We stayed on the 2nd floor (Bradford Suite). The room was lovely and spacious (plus has an adjoining sitting room). The bed, tv, ceiling fan and adequate lighting made our night comfy and cozy. The bathroom was small but served it's purpose...

Eli was very knowledgeable of the area and a great host. We arrived a few hours early unexpectedly and he was most accommodating, providing us places to see and restaurants to eat. He cooked us an awesome gourmet breakfast and the bed we stayed in was very comfortable. The rooms were cozy (as expected) but were nicely decorated and the... More

Eli, the innkeeper, was exceptionally nice and helped up use our small amount of time in Sonora wisely. Eli also provides wonderfully thoughtful touches to his Inn and we felt very much like VIP's. The room was very clean and the bed very comfy.

We recently had the utter pleasure of staying at Bradford Place for the first time. Upon arrival we were greeted by two sweet, well-mannered Irish Setters, who beat the innkeeper, Eli, in welcoming us. The inn is charming & has tasty baked treats waiting in the parlor. After checking in & confirming our choices for breakfast, we were shown upstairs... More
