The Yosemite Blue Butterfly Inn was fabulous: the owners, Liz & Ron, were delightful; the room was lovely; the setting & view were spectacular; the breakfast was delicious ... what more could one ask for ... and just a mile from the Yosemite Arch park entrance, too! Jan H.

She always had plenty of protein options, as well as good breads as well. Very tasty breakfasts. Coffee was wonderful as well. Liz and Ron were the most...

We met New York friends in Yosemite for 4 days. We travel there frequently, our friends made their first visit. We've previously always stayed in the park, at The Ahwahnee or Yosemite Lodge. I found the Blue Butterfly Inn on the internet and consider it superior to any other accommodations we've ever had. Our friends stayed in the Lotus on...

We had a wonderful stay here. Liz and Ron are such terrific hosts. They have many interests and love to get to know the guests. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Their recommendations for attractions and restaurants were very helpful. The only thing we would change is to stay longer!

We stayed here for two nights as part of our two week Californian road trip, I only wish we had stayed for longer! The inn is beautiful, we had a very large room with a balcony overlooking the river at the back off the inn. The views are breathtaking.
