“Best stay of California Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had a wonderful relaxing time at Big Creek Inn. The best place we stayed in a 2 week trip. Our room was beautiful, with a balcony over looking the meadow, cosy fire, and nice bathroom. Our host Pamela went out of her way to offer great advice on hikes, and restaurants in the evening. There is a huge DVD collection to access, and fridge for us to use that was also stocked with soft drinks to help ourselves to. Finally, a different breakfast was prepared for us each morning. One of the best places we have stayed at on our travels and will recommend to others heading this way.

Room Tip: We didn't see other rooms.

Great location and Pamela made us feel right at home with great rooms and a homely feeling which was very clean. After a day of trekking Yosemite, the bog bathroom and modern touches was a huge pleasure. 10 out of 10. Would love to stay there again in future.

Lovely B&B in the heart of Yosemite.
Very clean, spacious rooms, set in the glorious surrounds of this property.
10 minute drive from Mariposa Grove where the big Sequoia's can be seen and around 45 minutes to Glacier Point.
We only had one full day to see Yosemite due to a hectic schedule, but the lady who owns the Inn spent time explaining where to go for the best sights, she even lent us a rucksack and cool bag. Very nice!

Hints:
Do not underestimate how long it takes to drive through the National Park. It's slow and very winding.

Avoid Yosemite Village at weekends, traffic is painful. Spare the time for Glacier Point, Sentinel Point or go over to Half Dome.

The Big Creek Inn and its hosts, Pamela and John, provide an excellent guest experience at Yosemite's south entrance. Located about 10 minutes from the Mariposa Grove and the Wawona Hotel and about 45 minutes from the Yosemite Valley attractions (closer than the Tenaya!), the inn has 3 comfortable rooms and a common area with a refrigerator and a table for games. The DVD collection is enormous and includes something for everyone--perfect after a long day of hiking.
Bonus: Pamela can suggest hikes and help you plan your Yosemite itinerary.
If you don't need 4 restaurants and a pool and/or if you'd prefer a quiet, restorative Yosemite experience, I highly recommend the Big Creek Inn!

We only had one night at the end of our Ahwahnee Yosemite vacation and were so pleased that we chose the Big Creek Inn. Pamela and John were excellent hosts, the Mariposa room was beautiful, and the common area was stocked with everything imaginable. The place is spotless, quiet, updated and conveniently located on Hwy 41. We chose the Big Creek Inn based on other traveler's excellent reviews, and we agree!

The accommodations and service at Big Creek Inn are outstanding. John greeted us by name when we arrived and gave us a tour of the inn. Our room and the entire inn were spotless. The luxury mattress and spacious, tiled bathroom add to the first-class experience. Our private balcony overlooked a creek and the surrounding forest. The satellite TV and wide selection of current DVD’s let you relax and feel right at home after a long day of hiking. Snacks are also available in the common area (all included). Each morning starts with a great breakfast buffet. The food is very high quality. The inn keepers/owners (John and Pamela) are very friendly and polite. They go out of their way to make you feel right at home. Pamela gave us great suggestions for hikes and other activities each morning. We can’t wait to go back.

I have stayed twice here and would highly recommend it! My room was spotless(seriously one of the cleanest places I've ever been), with a very comfortable bed, large tub, gas fireplace, and deck looking over the rushing creek. There is a huge assortment of movies to watch as well as satellite TV, and John let me borrow his laptop to use the free wifi as I didn't have mine. Breakfast was excellent both times and it was nice to meet the other guests at the lodge. All of the positive reviews are correct!
