We stayed at the Blackberry in at the beginning of June and I can't say enough good things about it. Steve and Alex are great hosts and the breakfasts are excellent. The house is beautiful - I loved sitting out on the porch in the rocking chair with a glass of wine looking at the horses trotting and the hummingbirds buzzing around. The room we had was big and comfy and there are some really nice homely touches around the house. The location is beautiful but it is quite isolated - we'd usually look to stay somewhere within walking distance of places to eat and drink but it really didn't bother us having to drive into Groveland. Steve and Alex- thank you for a wonderful time and best of luck!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blackberry Inn. Alex and Steve are delightful hosts, and Steve's hearty breakfasts were delicious. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are immaculate. We were traveling with guests from England and they were fascinated with all of the hummingbirds. Both evenings we decided to picnic outside, and Steve provided the utensils and plates. We look forward to our next visit to the Blackberry Inn.

After reading reviews of the lodging in Yosemite Valley, I looked elsewhere. I'm glad I did. We booked three nights at the Blackberry Inn and had a wonderful stay. I, as others there at the Inn, went to Tripadvisor for research. All the reviews are accurate. Steve, who has recently taken over management of the Inn is doing a great job. Rooms are clean and comfortable and breakfast is excellent. The Inn is located about 30-40 minutes outside the valley floor near the town of Groveland. The Inn is quiet at nite so sleep is not an issue. I have stayed in the lodging of Yosemite Valley and noise is bothersome when your tired or getting ready for a big hike in the morning. The Inn is a great value and I would stay there again. Don't forget to walk down the driveway at nite and look at the stars it is amazing to see that many stars. We don't see those in and around city lights. The books on Yosemite at the Inn were very helpful, as well was Steve in providing information on planning our days.

We received a fantastic, friendly welcome from Steve and Alex who met us as we arrived at their beautiful house in delightful peaceful surroundings. After being shown to our lovely spacious room with luxury bathroom and fireplace we were left to make ourselves at home in the pleasant and comfortable upstairs balcony lounge which was well stocked with useful reading material about Yosemite and the surrounding area. The house is situated in a small loop road of the main road about 10 miles outside Groveland in a small settlement known as Bucks Meadow where we were able to walk to a popular local diner/restaurant/pub serving huge tasty portions at a reasonable price. The remains of the old highway are nearby and lead into a huge forest suitable for walking or jogging. Our interesting unique breakfasts were well presented and most enjoyable. My wife is a vegetarian, as was another guest, and they were both given more than ample special meals which a lot of thought had gone into ( why can other US bed and breakfasts not make a similar effort?). You would never know that our perfect hosts were new to the hospitality business and we wish them every success in the future. The much talked about and charming humming birds seem to be around the porch all day long and were the subjects of many photo-opportunities. We loved this place so much we wished it could have been moved from town to town throughout our tour of California.

Stayed: May 2008

We had the pleasure of staying with Anne-Marie at the beautiful Blackberry Inn during March'08 and would highly recommend this lovely B&B. Anne-Marie is a wonderful hostess, cook and travel writer with an extensive local knowledge that ensured we had a memorable stay. We look forward to returning with our family for an extended stay in the future.
