“Pretty Little Inn”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Just 7 miles outside of Mariposa is Little Valley Inn. Here you will find 3 buildings each with 2 cabins, a very nice outdoor space to walk around in. The best part of outside is at night when the stars come out, I have never seen so many stars. We stayed up all night taking pictures, we saw the milky way cloud, and shooting stars.
As for Suite Dreams room cabin # 1, it had two Queen size beds, nice bathroom, with two sinks, nice kitchen fully equipped, a patio your very own.
The beds were really comfortable,lots of hot water.and very quite.
The drive to Yosemite on Hwy.140 follows the Merced River and is breathtaking.

I placed my reservation and all is good....don't know why someone would have a problem with this B&B. Perhaps they are a competitor and trying to sully the reputation of this B&B to drive away prospective customers....this B&B is recommended a popular travel-guide...that's good enough for me!

Room Tip: No suggestions to make.

Thank you all for such kind and not-so-kind words over the years. We take feedback very seriously and continuously work to improve our guest's experience. LVI has remodeled those last "dated" bathrooms and all is refreshed and ready for 2013! Come explore the splendors of Yosemite.

We stayed in this inn during our Visit to Yosemite NP. It is conveniently located between both South entrances of the park. Christine is a warm and welcome hostess that gave us plenty of tips about the parc and restaurants we could visit. The room is nice and spacious and bear-themed. Quit a nice touch. Our room had a private balcony overlooking the garden.

Breakfast wasn't anything special but it kept us going for a few hours. Compared to other inns it was ok.

All in all we would recommend this inn for people looking for a quiet place with a personal touch and to be close to Yosemite without paying the premium prices of the hotels inside the parc.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suncatcher room

Surely everyone has an opinion based upon their own particular likes and dislikes and what they come to expect when visiting elsewhere. Our expectation were neutral, we came with an open mind because we really did not know what to expect with any of this portion of our trip. We (all five of us) enjoyed our stay from our more than adequate breakfast, homemade muffins, bagels, toast, HB eggs, fruit, juice, coffee and cereal, to our very comfortable bed, large bathroom with a great shower. It was so pleasant to return to our little deck welcoming sundown. Great weather does play a huge part and we were very fortunate for that. We would stay there again because of its uniqueness. Anybody can stay in a chain motel, which by the way, also request that you conserve energy. Christine offered sound advice which was very helpful since I had said before we did not know what to expect. I read previous reviews and did not find problems with what they were talking about. We did not need the AC in the evenings and we were gone all day. We could not have been any happier or more satisfied.

Room Tip: The cabins are strategically placed so privacy is a maximum and other people visiting a minimum. Sp...

Our family of 4 stayed in the Suncatcher room for two nights and were quite comfortable. Christine was a friendly and gracious hostess and helped us plan our limited time in Yosemite. We would happily stay at Little Valley Inn again.

We stayed at the Little Valley Inn at Mariposa on 11/12/13 May 2012. We really enjoyed our three nights. Christine, the innkeeper gave us a wonderful welcome and provided us with some great tips of places to visit whist we were in the area. She also helped immensely with the planning of our visit to Yosemite. Our room, which was of a cowboy theme, was very nice. We will definitely stay at the Little Valley Inn again.

We liked our cottage at the Little Valley Inn. Having the kitchen, especially the refrigerator, was helpful for packing lunches for our days in Yosemite. The flower gardens are pretty and fit the setting. The back property is very serene. Christine was extremely helpful in planning our days. We especially appreciated her alerting us to a road closure one day.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Suite Dreams cottage and liked it. It was spacious and a kitchen.
