We have stayed at the Bradford many times when Dottie was the proprietor and this was our first stay with Eli. Eli is warm and welcoming as well as very accommodating. The atmosphere has changed but this is still a wonderful place to stay. We were in the Yosemite room this time which has a spacious bedroom and whirlpool tub in the bathroom. It also has it's own outside entrance and a very nice private little garden area.
We loved that Eli delivered breakfast to our room each morning. There were homemade Christmas cookies in the parlor and Eli even made a special bread for breakfast on Christmas morning. What a treat.
Eli has two well mannered Irish Setters. If you are a dog lover you will surely be charmed by the charismatic Marilou and the somewhat shy Billy Ray. They only came when invited so if you would prefer that they kept their distance it doesn't seem like that would be a problem. We thoroughly enjoyed them.
The Bradford is just a block off the main street so is the perfect place for a visit to Sonora. You will feel right at home in this charming Victorian.
