Beautiful, quaint hotel. Our room was very clean and the owners/innkeepers were simply the friendliest I've ever experienced. They made myself and my family feel like we were visiting friends. The room allowed in a lot of light, unlike standard dark-ish rooms with a small window. I intend to have many return visits! Would recommend to anyone.
This lovely inn is on the road leading right to the entrance to Yosemite -- situated at the edge of the town of Groveland. It was a bit difficult for us to find as we missed the sign along the road and the inn is set back perched on top of a hill. The driveway is steep! Once settled in by the gracious, friendly innkeepers -- being on top of the hill was delightful for the views and breezes. The main areas of the inn were comfortable, and we took our breakfast outdoors to the balcony among the trees, which was delightful. Breakfast was a bit sparse, not a gourmet B&B, but filling enough to get us on our way to Yosemite. The rooms were well decorated with comfortable beds.
The Berkshire Inn is a family owned and operated Bed and Breakfast on Rte 120, directly along the route to or from the gate to Yosemite National Park. A great place to escape before, after, or during your visit there. The Berkshire Inn is one of those hidden gems, which can be best be described as warm, welcoming, and pleasant, as are it’s owners and hosts Brittany and Chris. It is also, thankfully; reasonably priced by this family. Call Chris or Brittany, let them know you’re headed there way, and you will be greeted with a glass of wine, hospitality, and welcoming warm accommodations, followed by a continental style breakfast in the morning to accommodate your pállate.
I stopped here on a whim because it was getting dark, and I wanted to head over Tioga Pass in the morning. What a wonderful inn. The proprietors were super nice, and gave me a great room with a view out over the valley. I would love to come back sometime with my wife, but would recommend it to anyone. It's about as close as you can get to the Valley from that side without being in the park, and it's a welcoming spot. Also - I highly recommend the Mexican place down in Groveland. It's absolutely epic.
We loved our stay here. The owners are great, and the rooms are lovely. There are a few good restaurants nearby, so being on the edge of the park worked out well for us. Porch sitting was our favorite pastime as it cooled off in the evenings.
