“Exceeded Expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We booked into Big Creek on the recommendations in Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Just as the other reviewers found, the room was perfectly clean and luxurious. Pamela's recommendations on where to go in Yosemite were spot on: we followed her suggestions and had a great time. The nearby restaurant was an excellent recommendation and the deli about 200 yards away supplied excellent sandwiches and good value wine! Breakfast - fantastic, and enjoyable company.

My husband Dave and I spent two nights in the Mariposa Room at the Big Creek Inn in Fish Camp, CA. Located a very short distance from the entrance of Yosemite NP, the inn is a fine example of the best type of BnB experience. The Inn is kept exceptionally clean, it is quiet, the bath and bed are luxurious, and the breakfasts were delicious. Innkeeper Pamela is doing an incredible job with this inn. We wholeheartedly recommend this inn to fellow travelers.

My husband Chuck and I just spent 2 nights at Big Creek Inn. All aspects of the B & B are very comfortable and spacious. Pamela is there to give you first-hand advice about how to make the best time of your visit to the park and to serve you a beautiful breakfast. She also had a steaming pot of coffee (that 1st cup) available in the upstairs lounge in the AM as I got ready for the day -- a little thing that really makes this traveler feel good. The B & B is located right near the South entrance to the park -- close to the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoia trees. Great hospitality !!

We recently stayed at the Big Creek Inn and had a marvelous experience. We stayed in the Mariposa room and enjoyed it's amenities and meadow views for 2 nights in September. It provided a clean, comfortable and luxurious retreat after exploring Yosemite, just 2 miles away. Pamela has a true gift of hospitality, thinking of everything to make her guests comfortable. Each morning Pamela prepared a delicious hot breakfast and offered expert advice on the best places to visit in the park. She also made valuable suggestions about nearby restaurants and stores. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Big Creek Inn and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very special place to stay when visiting Yosemite.

We arrived at the Big Creek quite late at night but had no troubles getting into the property from the instructions we had received at time of booking. We woke up early the next morning & Pamela offered to do us breakfast early so we could make the most of our day in Yosemite, we had waffles with lots of fruit & maple syrup & they were to die for. After breakfast Pamela helped us decide what to see in the time we had & this proved to be invaluable. On our second morning there were more guests so we had a full buffet breakfast & Pamela had laid on everything you could think of, hot items, cereals & oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, bagels, toast.....so much to choose from. We stayed in the Mariposa room it was huge with a nice balcony where I loved watching all the humming birds each morning there were so many! The room was spotlessly clean with two bathrooms; one had a bath & shower combo plus a sink & the other had another sink & toilet. There was a walk in closet & a very large entry which opened up into the bedroom & also had the bathrooms & walk in closets off of it. Lastly I just wanted to thank Pamela for forwarding my husband's trousers that he left in the room to us which she covered the cost of as my English credit card wouldn't accept the payment you really did go above & beyond not only with the trousers but your hospitality whilst we were staying with you...Big Creek was our joint favourite place to stay on our whole 22 day trip around the west coast & we hope to be back in the future for sure.

Big Creek Inn made our trip to Yosemite even more perfect. Pamela greeted us at the door and showed us to our lovely room (Mariposa) and I was so impressed with the cosy feel of the room and it had everything we needed. The breakfast was so good loved the homemade sweet breads and muffins! I really wanted to see a Steller's Jay and Pamela gave me some peanuts to attract them on our deck, and I got a great picture! Pamela was very helpful with advising us on what to see in Yosemite and she was right on everything worked out great. Ron especially liked the candy jar! Highly recommended!

Unwilling to pay the rather lofty summer rates for hotel lodging inside the park, we chose the Big Creek Inn after researching other nearby possibilities. Good choice. Despite only a one night stay, it was the most comfortable night of our 4 day trip to Yosemite. Our room, the Mariposa, was large, well-appointed and absolutely immaculate (as was the rest of the inn). Double windows keep the room quiet as do the walls which are very thick and sturdy. We found the deck outside the room a wonderful place to stargaze - the night sky was mesmerizing. In the morning, Pamela, the innkeeper, had a very nice and healthy breakfast prepared and engaged in pleasant conversation with all her guests. Additionally, she has a wealth of information about Yosemite and suggested visiting another section of the park we had never been to. If you are not very familiar with Yosemite, take her advice! We did, and our exploration of the park was far more memorable than it probably would have been. In short, the Big Creek Inn is a perfect place to relax in after a long day inside Yosemite. Highly recommended.
