Queen's Inn by the River
Ranked #6 of 10 Oakhurst B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 4, 2014

This place is perfect. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The room was big, clean, and pleasantly decorated. The location is on the outskirts of town and close enough to the park entrance. We really enjoyed the patio and bar area, where we drank and played yahtzee. We hope to return soon!! Thanks!!

Book as quick as you can. There are only 8 rooms.
Stayed there on april 25th.
Family operated and friendly with a wine taste room (free for guests) and they also sell beer.
Very large room with a fireplace and a patio at the back of the room.
Location is between the highway and the river so very quieted. Half way down to the river is a small quieted place where the motel has made at cosy spot.
Breakfast is what it is. OK but go to the Sweetwater restaurant for a FULL breakfast.
They do not advertise very much at the turnoff of the highway so you need a GPS. Or if you come from the south, you turn just before the Sweetwater restaurant (very good food and wine list).

I've stayed here several times and have had a fabulous experience each and every time! The setting is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and quaint, and the coffee and breakfast were great! Deb was very friendly and accomodating. Oh also, if you like wine, there is a winery on site, with a tasting room and a beer and wine bar. The wine bar has entertainment during the warmer months. And the winery..Idle Hour, spectacular!

Room Tip: Just ask about size, they are all a little different, each one I've been is has been great

Nice and quiet (although we don't know how it is when the wine bar/patio is operating). Lovely location, very accommodating staff, and clean, attractive rooms. Each room has a little patio looking out onto a pretty landscape. The beds were a little too soft for our taste, but everything else was great. We aren't wine drinkers, so we can't give an opinion on that part of the experience, but everyone we know in Oakhurst raves about that aspect, too. We recommend it!

I have stayed at the Queen's Inn on several occasions and can honestly say I'll be back! The rooms are clean and well maintained and the people who run it are always friendly and eager to please. If you're a wine lover they have a great list. Or try their wine "Idle Hour," it's yummy!! Always an enjoyable stay in the mountains!

I absolutely love this place! First and foremost, the wine here is spectacular!!! After a fun afternoon drinking vino, eating gourmet cheeses, listening to live music, and laughing with the locals you can sit by the river and really relax. The rooms are boutique, clean, and very well done. This is the perfect place to stay if you're on the way to Yosemite, or running day trips into the park. Don't miss a stay at this place, and definitely keep your eye out for Idle Hour wines!

My sister and I were traveling to Yosemite in October, 2013 and were fortunate enough to be able to stay at the Queen's Inn in Oakhurst. This was my second stay at the Inn, the first being a couple of years prior to that. The rooms are nicely decorated, comfortable beds and a quiet location on a creek. The staff is friendly and willing to provide you with information on the local area.

There is a wine and beer garden attached to the Inn that provides an outdoor seating area with a fire pit and many evenings there is music provided by musicians from the surrounding area. There is also a winery just next door that provides some great tastings if you catch them open.

I travel often to the area to visit friends and like to stay there. My only disappointment was that all rooms were filled on my last visit in February 2014. Queen's Inn was apparently a popular place to stay that weekend due to the Madera Wine Trail...it was a great place to start and finish the tour!
