“Comfortable, quiet and relaxing inn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

We enjoyed our visit so much, wish we could have stayed longer. Steve is so welcoming, and made us a wonderful breakfast. The rooms are large, but have that cozy and warm feel to them. There's a lovely sitting area, the dining room is spacious, and breakfast is family style. After we checked in, we enjoyed sitting on the large porch, watching many hummingbirds at the feeders. I can't wait to return, but next time for longer!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very nicely furnished, the area was great, and we loved sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds. And Steve made a great host. Already trying to figure out when we can make a return trip.

A wonderful B&B, close to the northern entrance to Yosemite. Although close to highway 120, the forested surroundings make it feel miles from anywhere. The sense of tranquility is enhanced by the local wildlife i.e. hundreds of humming birds nesting in the nearby trees. Steve (the owner) has strung a line of feeders along the porch, and if you stand still, those tiny birds happily buzz in and out, less than 2 feet from your face. My wife and I stood entranced every spare minute we had. The rest of the Blackberry Inn didn't disappoint either. our large room was wonderfully comfortable and peaceful, and each morning Steve knocked up a delicious breakfast. Local dining options are limited - there is a lodge restaurant serving 'typical Americana' (Steve's words) 5 minutes walk away - but there are a few place 11 miles up the road in Groveland (including the excellent Groveland Hotel). There were too many things left unexplored on our first visit, so we have plenty of excuse to stay at the Blackberry Inn again!

We spent 4 nights with a group of 5 couples, each with its own room. Our room was clean, roomy and comfortable. The breakfasts prepared by Steve were very good and the girls asked Steve for his recipes in several cases. I personally tend to like more basic breakfasts (eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.), but I think I’m in the minority because others rave about the yuppie breakfasts served at B & Bs. All the rooms are different, but everyone seemed to like their room. Our room was on the main, downstairs floor and had a wonderful vanity and a separate room for the toilet. We spent all 3 of our full days visiting Yosemite, eating lunches at various venues in the park. We returned to Blackberry Inn in the evenings and had dinners at local restaurants outside the park. We were helped immensely by Steve. With Steve’s help we worked out a schedule to view the main sites of the park and to eat at wonderful restaurants inside and outside the park. Regarding the sites in Yosemite, it is very important to view things in a proper sequence to avoid the crowds, and the sequence changes depending on the times you are doing the viewing. Similarly, during high season it’s important to make reservations at restaurants. Steve not only advised us in great detail, he made the necessary reservations, both inside and outside the park. Because Blackberry Inn is outside the park, it adds miles to sightseeing in Yosemite. However, seeing Yosemite requires a lot of driving no matter where you stay and if you stay in Yosemite you will need to drive the same miles to go to local restaurants outside the park; which add to the experience. The price seems a little high, but Steve seems to be getting it and he bends over backwards to give good service. Oh yes, Steve set up a dedicated space for us (the 5 couples) to have cocktails and appetizers before dinner.

Room Tip: We liked our room, the only room on the main, downstairs, floor.

We spent 3 nights in May at the blackberry Inn. My husband and I absolutely loved everything about the Inn. Walking into our room we knew right away we picked the right place to stay while touring Yosemite National Park. Our room on the second floor was flooded with sunshine when we arrived and I immediately felt at home. Spacious and airy, ceiling fan, large windows , lovely bedding, clean and two comfy recliners made this our home away from home. The electric firplace next to our bed made for a romatic setting in the evening. The best part is you can turn on the fireplace without it heating up. Great atmosphere. We were so tired at night from hiking etc that we were in bed by 10:00 so we truly appriciated all of the comforts of the Inn. Although the Inn was fully booked every night there we never heard a sound until the local woodpecker and other birds woke us in the morning. Coffee on the porch followed by a wonderful breakfast made by Steve was the start to a great day. The large dining table where we had breakfast with the other guest was so beautiful, set with differnt china every morning. Such a treat for me and my husband who appreciate the efforts of the Inn to make the guest have a wonderful experience. We had not fully planned out our trip to Yosmite but Steve gave us suggestions that helped us get the most from our short time in Yosemite. The Inn is a short ride to one of the entrances to the Park and close to Groveland, a cute littel town with a goldrush feel. When we left we truly felt like we had been to a special place. We would definetnly return and would recommend the Inn to anyone without hesitation. Thanks for making our 30th anniversary so special

Room Tip: There are only two rooms on the second floor of the Inn. There is a large living room area between t...
