“An hour+ from Yosemite Valley but still a great value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We recently spent 3 nights in the El Capitan cottage at Nature Inn in Ahwanee,CA. The cottage is clean, modern, spacious and well equipped. It sleeps 4 (2 in each of 2 bedrooms.) The queen bed is a bit saggy and the bedding is a little disappointing, but that's my only gripe. Oh, the oven didn't work (the range worked fine.) There's even a washer and dryer (with detergent and dryer sheets!) This was a welcome surprise, saving us a trip to a laundromat after being on the road 10 days. There a large screen tv with DirecTV service. Breakfast is served hot and with TLC (the coffee beans are ground by the innkeeper) in a log lodge building; very nice and inviting! This B & B provides an excellent value; we paid as much ($190/night) or more at other inns and considerably less bang for the buck. This is a convenient location for visiting the Mariposa grove (sequoias) in Yosemite NP but is more than an hour's drive from the valley. It's a pretty drive, but a bit long after a full day in the park.

I only wish I had more time to spend at the b&b! The property is gorgeous- extremely romantic. My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights. Hiked yosemite during the day, came back to a jacuzzi under the stars. Sherilee was a wonderful host! Made wonderful breakfast and was a full of wonderful information, we are already planning our next stay.

Sherilee was so patient, kind and helpful with all my questions - even gave amazing tips of what to see in Yosemite. The B&B itself was really cute, cozy and perfect for the one night we stayed there! Definitely recommend staying here! It's a bit of a drive to the south entrance of Yosemite, but it was worth it.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in September 2012. The owner Sherilee has only just come into the B&B profession (June 2012 I think). Well having stayed there you would have thought that she had been doing it all her life. The room that we stayed in was called "Clouds Rest". This room is upstairs and has its own landing with an extremely large balcony that overlooks the distant hills. The Lodge is immaculate and from the minute of meeting Sherilee you feel as if you have known her all your life. She goes the hole 100 yards to make you feel at home and is always available if you need any assistance. Her breakfasts are exceptionally cooked and varied. Just a few miles from the town of Oakhurst (plenty of restaurants) and approximately 14 miles from the South Entrance to Yosemite NP this accommodation is perfect. I can not speak high enough of it. But done take my word for it go and try it for yourselves. Just one extra thing dont let the cats in!!! Trudie and Steve England

Room Tip: If all the rooms are the same as Clouds Rest then you cant go wrong. But this room has the views

We spent 2 nights at Natures Inn . We stayed in El Capitain - which is a two bedroom cabin with a kitchen. Breakfasts were wonderful. My daughter is a vegan and Sherilee could not have been more helpful. She also gave us lots of tips about what to see and do since we had such limited time! She was also very accomidating since we got there late the first night since a boulder needed to be removed from a road in the park, and we had to go back out and around. It was just wonderufl. This is what Bed and Breakfasts are supposed to be!!

We find the place absolutely fantastic. The room was huge as well as the bathroom, with plenty of space to deposit our stuff.
We were very happy to discover a swimming pool and a hot tub that were not mentioned when we did our reservation.
The keeper of the Inn was very supportive to all our requests and the breakfast prepared by her was very good.
We highly recommend the place.

Room Tip: We have used Clouds Rest - absolutely fantastic room, with a great balcony, in the main building.

The place has new ownership since a month ago - and they aim to please. Owner accommodated us in every way we asked, including helping plan our trip. Hot tub, pool, and nice selection of new movies are nice. Breakfast is delicious. This is what you hope to find at a B&B.
