We chose this place because it was near Yosemite, midway between my home and my friend's home, and it allows dogs. We got the great winter rate by starting our stay on a Thursday night. The place is old and being lovingly restored, keeping the rustic but classy theme. Rooms are small and cozy, but they have a few suites for a those needing more room. It has a very interesting history and is a beautiful area. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The restaurant, open weekends, is upscale and reasonable- great food! We were able to relax, go down to the scenic creek next door, and enjoy the quiet.
Note: If you are a believer, this place is reputed to be haunted. We had our own experiences to validate it; nothing scary if you know not be to afraid. Just interesting. It is a short drive to an entrance to Yosemite, but an hour drive to the actual scenic valley. There are USFS hiking trails and giant sequoias nearby if you don't want to go far. We plan on going back this spring.
