We just spent 3 nights in the Briar Rose room at the Blackberry Inn. This is a perfect place to base your explorations of Yosemite. Everything is absolutely spotless and comfortable. The chocolate chip cookies and feather bed waiting at the end of a long day of hiking are just two of the special touches that make this one of our new favorite places to stay.
Ann Marie is very knowledgeable about the area (she has written several guidebooks) and will help you with your planning if you wish. Breakfast is enough to hold hikers until dinner. We ate breakfast and then took some trail mix with us to snack on in the afternoon. Arriving back at our base, we ate at the 49er restaurant just down the road, which gives ample portions or 'roadside diner' food for a small price. With the windows open, we had cool breezes coming in all night and in the early morning twilight, the views of the stars was wonderful. With several hummingbird and finch feeders, there was always a flurry of feathered activity right outside the dining room.
In short, this B&B fulfilled all our B&B ideals; spacious, quiet, beautiful setting, located close to our destination, good food and a great hostess that was helpful without being overly so. Definately a 'do again'.
