“A relaxing, spacious place to quiet down…”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2008

Stayed for four nights beginning of May after we had seen the info on their Website. We were greeted in a very gentle way by John, one of the innkeepers, a few minutes after our arrival. We had booked the Sunrise Suite, which has corner views of the garden and a far range of trees as well as a mountain range in the distance. The property extends to a small creek; we saw quails, a deer and a friendly cat.

Our two-level room was large by all standards, and meticulously clean. I loved the free WiFi which I used to surf and call. The kitchenette had basic furnishings and a copious amount of coffee. What we really liked was our bed, very comfy and a welcome sight after a long day on the road to and in Yosemite. For those who are not so mobile: you'll have to walk down 14 stairs from your upstairs to the ground floor of your room to use the restroom; we did not feel that was a problem for us. The verandah is big, has your own seating and is a wonderful place to hang out and take in the view. At night, after the outside light is switched off at 4:40, you'll have a fantastic display of stars, weather permitting, from your porch.

Breakfast and gourmet coffee are offered in the living room as a self-serve: Sausages and hard-boiled eggs; waffles and toppings; yoghurt and cereals; all ready for you to give you energy for the day.

A word about the innkeepers: John and Brenda are a really lovely couple, the well-being of their guests is always on their mind. They are a great source for information and were always there with a nice word or two. Other than that, the place is really quiet and oozes a feeling of relaxation and gentleness.

Coming up from Oakhurst, make sure you pass Road 601 and take Road 610 to your right, then another right to their property. Cheap gas is to be had at Vons in the shopping mall before you leave Oakhurst for a 15 minute drive to their lodge.

We enjoyed the fact that from the lodge, we could use both the southern entrance to Yosemite, as well as the western access - the two offering totally different aspects.

  • Liked — The quiet, natural surroundings and the kindness of the innkeepers

Please correct the directions given on this review. Guests take Highway 49 from Oakhurst pass Road 600 and exit Highway 49 on Road 601 to first street on right.
Dont want anyone to get lost!
Happy traveling,

My new wife and I stayed here on our honetmoon whilst travelling down the coast and into Yosemite, all I can say is that if you get the oppurtunity you must stay here.

From the booking process to the directions, how we where met when we arrived and above all the rooms and the view this is a first class experience for anyone and can recommend it 100%.

This B & B is the best. Quiet location, but very close to the major park entrance (Yosemite Nat'l Park). The owners give 110% with everything they offer: Cleanliness, Breakfast, Friendliness... Definitely a place to know! Thanks for everything, guys!!!

This is a new BandB in the area and I have to tell you, it is very nice. It should be called the Sierra Mountain Suites. Beautiful view of the mountains from the room we stayed in. There were 2 floors in our suite. Bedroom upstairs and bathroom, kitchen, and living room downstairs. Rooms had such items as a sink, refrigerator, satellite TV, wireless internet for you laptop users, a sofa or chairs, etc... The continental breakfast was great. Fresh fruit, coffee, muffins, cereal, etc...
There was a nice sunny deck to sit on just outside our room.
We went to Yosemite every day and even though this BandB is about 9 miles further from the entrance than other BandB's, it is worth the extra few minutes of driving...believe me. It is so peaceful and quiet. You will never get a better nights sleep anywhere. The price was very reasonable as well. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone. Believe me, we tried another B and B and the owner of the Sierra Mountain Lodge was nice enough to save us at the last minute from that horrible experience!! Thank you!!

We decided to bypass the overpriced hotels in Yosemite Village to stay at this B&B near the south entrance and Mariposa Grove. We were not disappointed! Our room was huge with all of the amenities (SAT TV, DVD, two bedrooms, kitchenette, etc). The continental breakfast was beyond 'deluxe'. The lodge had a beautiful view of the surrounding area. It was a a short drive to Oakhurst which has many restaurant options. While it is a bit of a drive to the valley, it is worth it, in my opinion. The room was a great price and was the perfect place to relax after a day of hiking.

  • Liked — Cozy room, breakfast
  • Disliked — about 75 minute drive to Yosemite Valley
  • Tips/Secrets — It's worth the drive.
