As is clear from the previous reviews, this is an exceptional B&B experience that offers a consistent level of attention to detail and gracious hospitality. We too stayed in the Mariposa room and it is spacious and immaculate.
What struck us most about Big Creek Inn is that the Innkeepers have really thought through what it means to provide a relaxing and welcoming experience. I just can't imagine anyone does it better in the Yosemite area. Pam is also a great trail guide, and directs and plans folks day(s) to match their interest and skill level if you so wish.
The Inn is just outside the South Park entrance, easy access to Mariposa Grove and without all the frantic crowds of the Yosemite Valley.
If you choose to stay at Big Creek Inn, I can't imagine how you would be disappointed, and if/when we get back to Yosemite, we will once again stay at Big Creek. If you are fortunate enough to go in May or June, and the stream is running, you have fishing right out your backyard. If you go in winter, there is a fantastic DVD collection in case you are snowed in, or the satellite dish loses reception for a few hours. They really have given great thought to how to make this a great vacation experience.
If you are traveling with a group of 6, and you planning well ahead, you can book the entire house. That's my plan for the next trip.
Thanks Pam and John for a great stay, and definitely heed Pam's advice to do the Glacier Point drive, and the Sentinel Dome and Taft Point hike. It is awe inspiring.
