I don't know where to start, we arrived in the middle of the afternoon after driving over from San Francisco (a really pleasant drive I might add), what a welcome. Alex showed us to our room, which was exceptional, a large room with a huge bed that I never wanted to get out of, perfect views and the cookies which my partner Dave had read about and couldn't get enough of!!!!
Seriously the rooms are beyond exceptional, spotlessly clean and so welcoming. One of my favourite memories of our holiday touring California, was being in Yosemite for the day, walking to Mirror Lake and Vernal Falls and coming back to the room, to find the fire on, lights dimmed and the truly scrumptious cookies waiting for us, it was like coming home - we loved it!!!
The breakfasts are exceptional - Steve is a domestic go, I wanted to bing him home in my suitcase but Alex was having none of it!!!
I cannot stress what a lovely couple Alex and Steve are, they are so helpful and you can truly see how much they enjoy sharing their stories with everyone and listening to your adventures. What exceptional hosts.
I cannot recommend Blackberry Inn highly enough, it's all we've talked about, if you don't stay here you serioulsy do not know what you are missing.
Rememeber if you have a long car journey to save some of your cookies, we did and they were very welcome on our 6 hour car journey to Santa Monica.
