What a magical stay!!
We chose the Blackberry inn after reading all the good reviews that were posted on several websites and we were even more delighted when we arrived. Steve greeted us warmly and showed us around the big beautiful house surrounded by little Hummingbirds and led us to our room that was very conveniently located on the ground floor with a private entrance that opens on the deck.
We booked the Brameberry room because we loved the colours and the spacious bathroom. But when we saw it, we found it even more charming than how it looked on the pictures! Furnished with an exquisite selection of antics, extra thick baths towels and beautiful linen from Pottery Barnes, every single detail was harmonious and elegant. We visited some of the other rooms, they’re all beautifully furnished. Alex, Steve’s wife, chose it all by herself, with a very confident taste.
Breakfast was excellent, cooked and served by Steve, at the big dining room table, different menu and different China every morning! ( Alex’s private collection) What a joyful atmosphere it was, discussing with guests from all over the world! Then Steve advised us on different routes and tracks through the park and helped us to establish a program. He knows everything about the Yosemite!
Perfectly located, few miles away from one of the Park’s main entrances, excellent welcoming and perfect customized service, Blackberry Inn offers a great value. We didn’t regret a bit our choice, especially after visiting different lodges and accommodations that were inside the Park, all of them overvalued!
Our trip through California lasted a month and I can assure that among all the hotels and inns we stayed at, the Blackberry Inn will definitely be the most exceptional experience we had and meeting Steve and Alex is a part of it.
We spent 3 days at the Blackberry Inn, it was too short, hopefully next time we’ll stay more!
