We are overdue our review of our stay at the chateau. It was an unexpected but amazing splurge while on our family car trip with infant son and two large dogs. We arrived at the Chateau very late at night, in a rain storm, in off season, and were welcomed with open arms and umbrellas. Everyone couldn't have been kinder....

As a compliment to Erna's Elderberry House in Oakhurst, CA (a mountain town East of Merced), this highly European influenced chateau delivers a getaway experience quite different from your usually B&B or inn. Built in 1991, each room is different in character, but probably similar in restrained elegance. This is a 5 diamond / 5 star hotel that is very...

There are many reasons to explore Yosemite, but among the most compelling should be a stay at the nearby Chateau du Sureau in Oakhurst. There are not enough superlatives to describe our recent visit. It is an exceptional inn, an absolute treat in every way. From our gracious welcome to our truly reluctant farewell, we were cared for and pampered...

We stayed at Chateau du Sureau as part of my wife's 60th birthday celebration week. Aside from the excellent and charming lodging as well as associated restaurant, which you would expect from a Relais & Chateaux rated property, the staff and surroundings make it a must stay place if you are going to visit Yosemite. Indeed,the staff knew about my...

My husband and I just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at the Chateau du Sureau, and now we know why it is listed in the book, "1000 Places to see before you die." We stayed two nights - Friday night was "just the room" which does come with breakfast, and Saturday night "Full Board." We are extremely grateful for Erna's...

My wife and I first encountered Chateau du Sureau through its restaurant, The Elderberry House, in 2011. We were staying at a near-by b&b, had spent the day in Yosemite and were primed for a good dinner. We were not disappointed. I had called to make a reservation and when we arrived, 2 of the staff were waiting outside the...

What an extraordinarily delightful experience. We had planned to see Yosemite but the US Congress changed all that. However Erna, a proprietor with an extraordinary capacity for making her guests feel as if the Chateau is their home did her best to make our stay memorable none the less. A fourposter bed, beautiful bathroom and staff who catered to every...

Hotel rooms are a bit old fashioned but well maintained. No TV in bedroom but large common living room downstairs with lots of books, games etc. Staff were so friendly and couldn't do more for you and really provided personal touch such as when they knew we were British they put a little Union Jack flag in our room and...

This is one of only 52 5 star hotels in the US. It is a unique experience. From the valet at your car to the 1200 thread count sheets, this is like nothing you have every seen at any other hotel.It is a once in a life time experience. The chateau is modeled after a French chateau - which means...
