Narrow Gauge Inn
Ranked #3 of 3 Fish Camp B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Narrow Gauge Inn is a perfect place to stay near Yosemite's south entrance. It is truly charming -- with lots of character. The rooms are cute and very clean & comfortable. If we had more time on this trip, I would have stayed here another night. We were disappointed the restaurant was closed on Tuesday evening (the night of our stay), but we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast (which was included with our room rate). The front desk staff & gift shop personnel were very friendly, helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend this location and would definitely stay there again.

We chose this hotel because it was close to Yosemite and easily accessible from where we were coming (Sequoia/Kings Canyon) but NOT in the park (hantavirus dangers!!!). When we pulled into the parking lot, we were all struck with how absolutely charming it looked. And we were totally not disappointed during our stay. The setting was lovely (forest view from the decks in the rear of the building); the hotel itself is tucked into the woods; it's small and cozy. The rooms were large, well-appointed, and clean. The restaurant, although a little pricy, was great, and the breakfast and the breakfast attendants were terrific. All the personnel were polite and friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved it. In fact, we ate dinner one night at Tenaya Lodge, a huge resort that is a couple of miles closer to the park entrance, and came home commenting on how glad we were to be staying at Narrow Gauge Inn. We would all stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We stayed in the rooms that faced the gardens in the upper parking lot. It was lovely to come out i...

What a sweet little inn. We drove up from Morro Bay for a two day getaway and we were so impressed. Check-in was a breeze, nice front desk staff in fact everyone we encountered from Front desk staff to groundskeepers and Dorothy in the restaurant were very friendly and accomodating. Room very comfortable and clean with a beautiful view of the forest. The grounds are imaculately kept with flowers and lovely landscape surprises all around. Truely a jewel in the beautiful Sierra Forest.

Chose this hotel because very close to south entrance to Yosemite but would recommend it having visited for a comfortable stay
Rooms are good sized with balcony..but it is the helpful staff who make this place a find
Shane in the bar always very friendly and welcoming and loved the hunting lodge style of the bar and restaurant. Pool and hot tub very welcome after a hot days hiking and we had the bonus of a MG owners club who stayed and drove off on Sat morning in their vintage cars
Good breakfasts and nice dinner on one evening in the dining room
Foolishly on the second evening we fancied something different and went to a pizzeria a little further alnong the road..Don't! it was terrible
Say hello to the seven toed cat in the gift shop..she is adorable

Room Tip: We overheard couple complain about the noise from the extractor fan near kitchen but our room very q...

After a long hike in Yosemite Valley we were looking for a place to stay. We were referred to a place close to Narrow Gauge Inn, which was very touristy and huge. Since we prefer small, privately owned hotels we went further and found this wonderful Inn. We were able to negotiate a very fair price and got the cutest hotel room I've ever seen. It had everything you need and even more. The breakfast was amazing, everything was homemade (e.g. muffins, banana bread etc.) and freshly prepared. Even dinner at this place was a dream! Never had such a good game quality... Overall, we can only recommend this place and will surely come back!

I really liked this hotel. Yes, it is not a Ritz Carlton, but the rooms are spacious and very comfortable and very well maintained. Breakfast was very good, the diner was also pretty good and reasonably priced taking into account location. But what makes this hotel shine is the staff - the word "no" does not exist in their dictionary and they are very friendly and helpful. We stayed for three nights and we really enjoyed the hotel. We will be back one day.

Room Tip: Don;t go for the cheapest room, request a room with your own patio. The view will pay for itself.

We were on a road trip and having camped in Yosemite the night before were ready for a comfy bed. We loved the Narrow Gauge Inn as it was quirky and quite unique, different from the chains. The pool was welcome on arrival and the grounds were well laid out with lots of flowers around. The rooms were probably a little old fashioned but that was absolutely fine We had a lovely balcony overlooking the mountains perfect for chilling with a glass of wine . Staff were all very helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good and breakfast was also excellent. We just wished we were staying longer....
