“Wonferful, restful place to stay”
Reviewed January 23, 2005

My wife took me to the Big Creek Inn on my birthday in August 2004. It was our first time to Yosemite. Living in the central valley in CA, it was hard to believe that it took us this long to get to Yosemite. But after staying at the Big Creek Inn for a weekend, and seeing the park, we were determined to make this an annual stop.
We loved our stay so much that I took my wife back to the Big Creek in September for her birthday! It is a clean B&B and cared for with attention to detail. The rooms are very cozy and the views are pleasant, overlooking the creek and mountainside. My favorite part of the stay was just relaxing and reading on the patio with the sounds of the birds and the creek in the background.
The Inn is also in a very convenient location, just a few miles south of the South gate of the park. We highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone venturing to Yosemite.

My husband and I had stayed at the Ahwahnee Hotel right before we stayed at the Big Creek Inn. We loved both places, but the Big Creek Inn was far more cozy (and far more reasonable in cost). The room was clean and beautiful. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. All three rooms were occupied, and we never heard a peep from the room next door. Pamela is a great host--knowledgeable and helpful. She also made delicious breakfasts. This is a great place to relax and veg. We would highly recommend it!

My husband and I spent three nights at the Big Creek Inn this fall. I have never stayed in a more comfortable B&B. The inn is set up so that guests have maximum privacy and all of the comforts of home. Our room and bathroom were spacious and lovely, and we really appriciated being able to check our email from the computer in the common area. Our favorite thing was the hot tub on the deck where we saw tons of shooting stars.

Pamela, the innkeeper, knows the park well and was able to suggest hikes and other activities that matched our pace and interests. She is the perfect mix of professional and personable. She cooks a mean breakfast and even had snowshoes to lend us.

If I ever have the good fortune to return to Yosemite, this is the place that I will always stay.

It is highly recommended!

We greatly enjoyed our time in Yosemite and at Big Creek Inn. The rooms are wonderful, breakfast was supurb, and the hiking and dining tips were much appreciated. We were quite surprised when we found a bottle of champagne in the room the night of our wedding but that is what makes the Big Creek Inn a special place. Pamela's attention to detail creates a very welcoming, comfortable environnment.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. We stayed here for 2 nights from Sept 27th to 28th and wished we could have stayed longer. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and full of personal touches to make your stay perfect. The proprietor Pamela Salisbury has got things just right and a lot of larger hotels could learn a thing or two from her.

We had booked the cheapest of the 3 rooms but due to a late cancellation were given the next one up at no extra cost, which was a nice touch. You can't really go wrong with any of the rooms though. They're all a good size with full size TV / VCR / DVD and there's a video and DVD collection to rival your local Blockbuster. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The hot tub is great and each of the rooms overlooks the creek in an idyllic setting away from the crowds of Yosemite Valley. The Big Creek Inn is ideally situated for Glacier Point (which has probably the best views in the whole of Yosemite) and the giant Mariposa Grove sequoia trees.

In short, if you're looking for somewhere to stay in Yosemite, stay here - you can't go wrong.

What a fantastic place Big Creek Inn turned out to be. Fabulous location, beautifully furnished, attention to detail in every respect. Great views over the meadow are really lovely. Your every comfort is provided for and being so close to Yosemite National Park is a real bonus. This is not just a Bed and Breakfast but a 'home from home'. The Innkeeper is fabulous - very friendly, welcoming and the communal breakfast was not to be missed. After a day out in the park, coming back to such a comfortable Inn was a delight. The DVD film library was truly the best we have seen and just the job if you fancied a relax after the hot tub! We wished we had been able to stay longer at Big Creek Inn - this is definitely a gem of a place to spend a holiday. We can't wait to go back.

A great place to stay - highly recommended! Close to Yosemite National Park, a really personal place with a hot tub to sit and star gaze from.
Fantastic breakfasts, refreshments always available, a full video & DVD library and free internet access.
