We reserved a suite with 2 queen beds. The room was attached to a large covered porch with a beautiful view. There are two large refrigerators on the porch to keep your food and drinks cold. It's quiet but conveniently located near a store and a few local restaurants, including the oldest saloon in CA. The staff is amazing. We realized we were coming in ahead of schedule and called ahead. They cleaned the room and had it ready for us 4 hours ahead of scheduled check in. It's approximately an hour from Yosemite, so it's a great place to base out of for multiple days of hiking in the park. Breakfast was a variety of fruit, baked goods and tea/coffee. Internet signal was strong from the room/porch. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. We came back from hiking and were very dirty. The water stayed hot for 5 consecutive showers. I also asked about laundry facilities. The owner took the laundry and offered to do it for us. Can't say anything other than "impressed." Strongly recommend this place.

We had a great 2-night stay at the Berkshire Inn. The room and bed were very comfortable and our hosts, Chris, Brittany, Carson, and their puppy, were everything (and more) that you hope for when you stay at a Bed & Breakfast. The breakfast was excellent and the location was very convenient to Yosemite – about a 25 minute drive to the park entrance and another 35 minutes to the center of all the action at Yosemite. If you are looking for a quaint place to stay that is warm, welcoming, and better than any experience you will get at a national chain hotel, this inn is highly recommended.

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.

Coming from San Francisco, the hotel is past the town of Groveland. The location wasn't walkable to town, and what? no TV? LOL On our first night out of the city we missed the TY, but by the second night, we relaxed and started to enjoy the quiet. You could drive to a few restaurants and a grocery store in town, There was a refrigerator on the porch for everyone's use. Breakfast was coffee, tea, some fruit, banana bread, and pastries. The owners seem to be the only employees, and they were friendly enough. The bed was a little too soft for me, but everything was clean and otherwise comfortable. The setting was beautiful, with incredible dusk and moonlight views of the forest.

The room was beautiful & spacious, exactly as pictured, breakfast was amazing with healthy choices and the owners could not be more attentive or accommodating. There’s plenty of common space and many porches with welcoming seating. And they have a puppy!! Thank you!

We stayed for several nights while we visited the Yosemite valley. The rooms were quite comfortable and separate access. We spend many evenings on the covered porch sipping wine and enjoying the sun setting over the local foothills. The inn keepers were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were quite hardy to get us through our hiking adventures. It was about an hour's drive to the floor of the valley, much less to the gate of the park.

The description of this place on their website made it sound cozy and fairly priced for a place to stay near Yosemite. What a total disappointment. First of all, we passed the place because the Inn sign is so small and about 50 feet up in a tree. When we pulled into the parking lot, the first thing we saw was a "For Sale By Owner" sign. That was the first sign of trouble. From the outside the place looked run down and neglected. There was a gazebo with a hot tub in it, and when we opened the top the water smelled moldy. We went inside and the owner was walking around in bare feet. Totally unprofessional, but that's just me. He was not friendly at all. In fact he seemed bored and not happy about being the owner of an Inn. The inside of the Inn was in desperate need of paint and new rugs. It smelled heavily of wet dog (the owners have a dog). The owner informed us we would be eating breakfast at a small, dirty bar (even though they had a large dining room table that the website mentioned). We also were the only people staying at the Inn. We decided to stay somewhere else, and when my boyfriend went back to get a refund, the owner was nowhere to be found (even though he called out for him several times); instead there was a disheveled, drunk guy stumbling around. We did not feel safe there at all. The place was very shady (and I don't mean covered by trees). We got our money back, but with a $40 cancellation charge. To be fair, at one time the Inn must have been very beautiful. It has a nice second story wraparound deck with a swing. It has a lot of potential. It just needs a LOT of TLC...and some new owners who act professionally and are courteous!

It's difficult to explain this B&B setup. Location wise in hindsight its just that bit too far to make it convenient for Yosemite. Its a 30 minute drive to the gate and then it takes another 30 minutes to get to the yosemite village area. This is a long drive home at the end of a big day out in the park.

The house is located randomly on the side of the highway, about a 10 minute drive or so to the nearest little village. It has a pretty barren feel to it and the house looks like it could use some work. Inside the decor of the house is very old fashioned and quite dated, but it is immaculately kept and everything is clean and well set up for guests.

Our room overlooked the main road, which turned out to be rather noisy at night and in the morning, so not the best sleep. The air con is also centrally controlled, so it went from being quite cool in our room to very hot during the night as it must have been turned off.

The lady was very friendly and helpful, but if you are not comfortable in B&Bs is does somewhat feel like you are intruding in their home, as all the living spaces flow through the main area of the house.

WiFi is offered for those requiring it, but the reception is pretty poor.

We happened upon this find after checking prices at Yosemite N.P & were quoted prices there at $190pn. We paid $100 plus tax at The Bershire Inn for a great room with a king bed and a balcony overlooking forest. It came with a fabulous continental breakfast & Kevin made us some great zucchini bread to go with it. There is a lovely balcony you can have breakfast on.They also provided complimentary wine & nibbles in the lounge room from 5pm. The room was clean quiet and only a 30 minute drive from the National park entrance. Which we didn't mind. As the scenery up there & back was great & we had a national park pass anyway. There are no tv's in the rooms which add to the feel of being away from it all.We would highly recommend The Berkshire Inn to anyone.

We stayed for 8 nights at The Berkshire Inn as 2 adults and 2 under 5's.

The Inn is 30 minutes drive to the west gate of Yosemite and a further 30 minutes to the valley floor or 1h 15mins to Glacier Point, which was no problem to travel every day as the views of the countryside are so beautiful.

The Inn was built 20 years ago and is a lovely building in itself which spacious rooms, TV/lounge area and a great terrace. The view is fantastic for watching the sunset.

All of this said this is not a 5* Inn in the normal sense as decor is very dated, beds are not brilliant and updating is needed throughout. The real treat here is the service we received. Britney was an amazig host and really made our stay 5* going above and beyond on so many things. She really makes the place work and her ongoing presence means the Inn will continue to improve.

No hesitation in recommending a stay at the Berkshire Inn, a great 8 days!
