Looking for a weekend to enjoy not only the beautiful scenery, but also the cutest little inn to enjoy it in. Beautiful room (#25) with a lovely deck, large room with comfy bed, lots of reading material in the room to help you plan your day trips, lovely folks at the check in desk, great bar with a fun bartender who is very knowledgeable about local history - ask for Shane.
Quiet, beautifully landscaped grounds, and the Railroad close enough to hear the echo of the train whistle from time to time as it travels into the woods-
I would highly recommend this Inn and look forward to our next opportunity to stay there again.

Room Tip: loved room 25 - on the quiet side of the inn with a huge deck in the trees.

Stayed three nights in this hotel near the southern entrance to the Yosemite Park.
If you are looking for a “conventional” and /or “modern” type of hotel, look somewhere else, but if you want to be near nature in beautiful and peaceful surroundings this is your place. .

The room we stayed (5 people) was huge and quite comfortable, with a balcony to the forest around it, but furnished in an unconventional way , you need to be open minded about it.

Rooms are located in 3 levels, and you should choose the lowest one, which is furthest from the road and also from some noisy machine located on the back of the restaurant.

Service is very friendly and efficient. There is a small swimming pool and a hot tub, but those are open only part of the year.

The same applies to the restaurant. When open it serves only dinner (except Monday and Tuesday).
It is quite good, but expensive.

Breakfast is included and Ok and there is free wi-fi.

The hotel is about 12 miles from the nearest town, and about 3 miles to the park's entrance and very well located to access the Mariposa Grove and Glacier Point, two of the “must see” points in the park.

However it is still at least a 40 minutes drive to Yosemite valley .

In general when driving to Yosemite , and to the hotel in particular, do not use a GPS as it tends
to get confused in mountain roads , use a map instead.

We were unable to get a King size room other than the Suite. We are so glad it happened that way. For a few dollars more you get the Suite with a King bed and two baths...one with a clawfoot tub. It is decorated beautifully. We had our own PRIVATE deck overlooking the forest. It had patio furniture on it & we found it funny there were no cushions on them...but thought maybe that was the way they were. But the last night we were there the cushions showed up! So, if you stay here and have no cushions be sure to ask for them because it's a lot more comfortable sitting on the deck. I had read a review before going that there were no hair dryers in the room. I contacted them about this prior to the trip & there was one waiting for me in the room....so ask for one. The grounds are gorgeous. Beautiful flowers, planters, and trees everywhere. The restaurant has an awesome breakfast (included with the room) and the staff is great. We didn't eat there at night because it was only open our last evening there. There isn't a lot of choice on the menu and most of it is very pricey. By the time we'd get back we just didn't feel that hungry to pay for such food...so we stopped along the way back somewhere to eat. Great WiFi service available if you need/want it. It's just a short walk from the hotel over to the Sugar Pine Railroad. We road the steam engine train & it was a beautiful and relaxing ride. The gift shop at the inn as an assortment of things if you need a last minute souvenir or something to bring home to someone. All in all....great location, great breakfast, awesome room....don't hesitate to stay here.

Room Tip: Can't say anything bad about it at all...awesome place to stay and the location is great. I'd recommend getting one of the rooms at the lower level in order to have the complete view without anything between you and nature.

We had a great stay at the Narrow Gauge Inn. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were fantastic - they set us up nicely for a day in the park! Evening meals in the restaurant are not cheap, but good quality. The drive into the valley takes about an hour but there are also more local attractions including the steam train and local trails.

We spent three nights here in Sept. 2012 while visiting Yosemite. It is a lovely "inn" - great continental breakfast - which included scrambled eggs & bacon or sausage.
Restaurant was very atmospheric and the food was very good. The only draw back is that Fish Camp is about an hour from Yosemite --- only 30 miles, but I counted 217 curves in 7 miles. However, based on the options for hotels when visiting Yosemite, I'd probably choose this one again.
