We spent 3 nights in the Bramble Rose room after spending 3 nights in a very noisy hotel in San Francisco so we truly appreciated the peace, quiet, and sounds of nature. Our room was very large and the bed SO comfortable. We had two recliners in a sitting area in our room where we played cards and read books in the evening. The sitting room has a great selection of books on the area, menus for restaurants, and games & cards. We also used the wine glasses and sat on the front porch to watch the hummingbirds at sunset. Steve is one of those people who loves what he does and it shows. He goes above and beyond to make sure all his guests have everything they need without being obtrusive. He gave us great tips on hikes and dining and served an amazing breakfast. On our last morning we were the only guests left so the two of us were served on his lovely deck overlooking the property. You are given a book with everything you'd need for Yosemite to take with you and leave in the room when you go, so helpful! He filled our water bottles for the park each morning and provides a computer for checking email, making reservations, etc. Free wifi in the rooms too! He also showed us the 2 new rooms which were amazing...both with giant soaking tubs! The house is immaculate and the quality of bedding and bath linens were so much nicer than you'd find in any hotel. The one thing I will note is that it is quite a distance to get to the Yosemite Valley. We planned ahead and brought a chance of clothes with us so we could hike during the day and then enjoy the restaurants in the park for dinner without having to make the 45-min each way return to the Inn. Also if you get a chance to go over to Hetch Hetchy it is a more rustic but lovely part of the park. Eat dinner at the Evergreen Lodge over there....awesome!
