“We all loved it !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

On a California rd trip with 3 teenagers which included staying in many places and they all rated this one of the memorable highlights of the holiday, as did we.
The hosts are lovely, welcoming , helpful and gracious.
They provide and lend guides to the park, gave great dinner recommendations, have lots of living spaces for guests to use, including a pool table room and made really lovely breakfasts.
They put out wine and deserts for when you return in the evening and nothing is too much trouble for them. It was 90'degrees when we were there and breakfast was served on a lovely porch.
The rooms are traditional but actually much nicer then they look in the photos on the website and the bed linens and towels were all high quality and really well laundered and starched like a top quality hotel with very comfortable beds.
Although its a drive down to Yosemite valley it's a nice easy drive through great scenery and on the way back on the first night we stopped for a swim at a waterfall as recommended by our hosts.

We stayed two nights in the mary room, beautiful room, very comfortable. The details in this home were amazing! They had a piano parlor, a library, game room and dining area where desert and port wine were served every evening. The breakfast were first class, beautiful presentation and nutritious. I could have stayed here for a week and let them cook for me, the food was really that good. I loved sitting in the parlor reading, listening to classical music. This family really goes all,out to make your stay comfortable. I would recommend this place to all couples for a quiet, romantic getaway!

We spent four nights at this wonderful B&B. The hosts could not have been more helpful, attentive or thoughtful.

Complimentary soft drinks, tea and coffee available all day, frequently accompanied by homemade Danish pastries or cakes. Choose a packed breakfast if you want an early start in Yosemite but you would miss out on Gary's delicious and varied cooked breakfasts. There are two lounges a snooker table and veranda for guests to enjoy.

The B&B is an hours drive from the route 120 entrance to Yosemite Park gate, two hours to the top of Glacier Point and one and a half hours to the Valley Centre. The drive in is very scenic, and we saw deer and coyotes so you won't miss out being a little further out.

There are plenty of places to eat in Groveland a ten minute drive from the B&B, including the Iron Door Saloon, reputedly the oldest drinking establishment in California.

Our room was beautifully clean and decorated, with an efficient and very quiet air conditioning system, although with opening and fly screened windows you might also opt for the fresh air too.

There is a peace and tranquility here that is worth seeking out and enjoying.

Stayed here while visiting Yosemite, it is about an hours drive to the valley floor. However the hospitality is simply astounding and the room we had was large and the bathroom was huge (we had Edwardo's room), a visit here is well worth the long drive to Yosemite. Breakfasts are served on the veranda and are just wonderful, Gary was doing the cooking while we were there and TJ served us all. We went for a 1.5 hour hike in Yosemite one day that turned out to be 6 hours and returned that evening exhausted and dirty. Celestia saw our pained expressions and offered to share their family dinner!! How's that for kindness!! We hope to return here one day.

Room Tip: Try and get a ground floor room if you have heavy cases, there is no elevator.

Stayed two nights and can't think of any way in which our stay could have been improved. This is a very nice family owned and operated inn and we were made to feel very welcome. It is immaculately clean and very comfortable. There is wifi available which is very fast. Another nice feature, at least for us, is there is no TV in the room which makes a really nice change!! As in most of this whole area, there is no cell phone service but calls can be made in Groveland, which is about a ten minute drive.
We loved it and we will be back!!

Room Tip: We slept in the "Mary" room. Lovely room and a nice view of the garden.

My fiance and I have spent our summer holidays 2012 touring California.

I had stayed in this wonderfull B&B two times before (it was then still a well kept secret) and it has never lost its charm over the years. In fact, whenever I visit California I now try to stop by and enjoy the serenity of the place for at least a couple of days.

When I visited together with my fiance we were most welcomed by the owners and everything was taken care of. We got information on hiking Yosemite, including good maps and hiking books, home-made cookies and the best pancakes we had on our whole trip - they were especially made for us on request of my fiance!

Coming to Yosemite Rose feels like coming home. You can engange in an in-depth discussion on how to make the perfect fried potatoes or just sit outside enjoying the garden view with a cold beverage in your hand. I will not comment much on the house itself and on the rooms. I have stayed in several rooms and the guest house and must say that all rooms have been just wonderful. It is a very peaceful and quiet place and after a few hours staying there you will relax, slow done and leave all the stress behind you.

If, after a day hiking, you still find yourself awake and not yet ready to fall asleep in your wonderful, cosy bed, go outside and have a look at the stars. The night sky is beautiful, especially if you are used to the big city night sky. But be aware! There is so much to do during the day that when you return to the Yosemite Rose and you sneak in to the living room to treat yourself with some freshly made chocolate cookies don't pass by your bedroom! You will immediately fall asleep in your bed before the sun sets and forget about star gazing at all.

Yosemite Rose is one of the places I always like to return to when traveling (which I do quite often, mostly for business). So if you haven't yet been there, give it a try. If you have been there, you know what I am talking about.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful and the pictures on the website don't do justice to the details that sho...

We stayed at the cottage. Based purely on the amenities I would have given this a 4, but the owners here really have a love for their property and treat guests well. That difference made me give this place a 5. It started with the hanta virus outbreak in Yosemite. Because we were traveling with a small child, we were concerned about the property and wrote the owners. They addressed our concerns with patience and thoughtfulness (hurray for the cats on the property!) and we were not disappointed by the cleanliness of the cottage. The cottage itself is small, with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and master bed, and upstairs there are 3 additional bedrooms in a loft (access by an external stairs). It was perfect for our intergenerational family of 5. The cottage was nice and cozy, charmingly decorated, and had a variety of DVDs and VHS (no satellite reception on the TV). Everything was very clean, and we enjoyed making our evening dinners. The cottage does not get the breakfast from the main house. They have wifi in the main building but most mobile phones are in a dead zone here.

The property itself is very beautiful, though somewhat of a distance from the Yosemite Valley floor (1 hour) and from downtown Grovesland (20 minutes). There are horses on the property, The main house is quaint and the grounds rustic and relaxing. Grovesland itself is small but it has a supermarket, liquor store, some o.k. restaurants and a small playground for the kids. Given the hanta virus outbreak, we were very happy to be staying outside of the national park.

The owners welcomed us warmly and answered all of our questions about the area. But mostly importantly, we left behind some western photos we had taken at a nearby ghost town. The owners made sure that they got to us safely. Service makes a difference, and I wouldn't hesitate to come here again. The cottage layout is ideal for families.
