The Little Ahwahnee Inn is a perfect choice for your visit to Yosemite. The location can't be beat, only minutes to the Southern entrance to the Park. The lodge is everything you'd hope for in terms of comfort and decor. Our gourmet breakfasts were deliciously prepared and served by our hosts who were genuinely interested in helping us make the most of our visit. Beth and Grant were wonderful in the way they provided us with directions, Yosemite hike recommendations, wonderful dinner suggestions and even great insights and advice for our subsequent trip to Napa Valley. Maureen and Ed highly recommend the Little Ahwahnee Inn.

They think of everything. Coffee and tea brought to your room first thing every morning. Wonderful gourmet breakfast. Helpful hints on seeing Yosemite Park. Their warm and friendly manner make this a must visit.

We cannot say enough about our experience at The Little Ahwahnee Inn. Beth and Grant are the best and most gracious hosts one could hope for. The Inn is gorgeous, the food is fantastic, and the setting is simply wonderful. We will stay here whenever we return to Yosemite.

We had an excellent stay at the Little Ahwahnee and would highly recommend it. A truly special B&B. Hope we are lucky enough to return.

Our stay at the Little Ahwahnee Inn was our first at a B&B, and we were pleasantly surprised. We were concerned before we left for our trip, with the wildfires in Yosemite that had been all over the news, and they were quite helpful in keeping us informed with current and up to date information. Beth and Grant were wonderful hosts (and gourmet cooks!), and were quite helpful with tips on what to see and do in Yosemite. We enjoyed visiting with them in the morning over breakfast before venturing out to the park. The Inn is gorgeous; we stayed in the High Sierra Suite, which was quite large and beautifully furnished. I was delighted to find books about the park in our room to read. Several evenings we came back from the park and spent some time reading upstairs in the great room. Every morning we had coffee and tea delivered to our door, and I went out on our private deck to welcome the day with my cup of tea. We loved our stay at the Little Ahwahnee Inn, and if we ever make it back to Yosemite, we'll be staying here again.

This place is just beautiful and the innkeepers Beth, Grant and of course Kamina treat you like you are royalty. We were pampered from the moment we arrived until we left. We love having our coffee brought to our room on a tray and the care they took preparing the gourmet breakfast. They made us feel at home and welcomed. We found it hard to say goodbye.

Little Ahwahnee is pure perfection! The owner, Beth and Grant, are were made to be inn-keepers. The inn, alone, is a grand and beautiful fixture in the forest; the views from each room are outrageous! And all the little touches (they put coffee outside your room each morning—along with a printout of the day's weather; they create 5-star breakfasts that taste amazing and are artfully displayed; they put out wine glasses for your use at night) offer an unparalleled experience inside this great and beautiful park. Plus the location, in my opinion, is better than the valley floor—less than a mile to Tenaya Lodge's facilities including a spa in several restaurants; two miles to the Giant Sequoias—and a few more to Glacier Point; and a ride/view down to the valley floor that's unmatched! I would never stay anywhere else!!!

This place is exactly what you look for while on vacation: Home away from Home (and, oh boy, what a Home it is!!). It was a delight for my husband and I to stay at this Bed & Breakfast. Beth, Grant and beautiful Kamina do an amazing job as innkeepers. We loved their company, the house is impeccable and so exquisitely decorated (the house itself is a work of art!), beds are sooooo comfortable, the views from your private deck are so peaceful and wonderful - and on top of all that, AMAZING and YUMMIEST breakfasts ever! I only wish we could have stayed there for an extra night or two. We surely miss Beth, Grant and Kamina's company - they would do anything to make you feel at home. This Inn is by far the best place to stay and to rest in front of a gorgeous fireplace with a glass of wine in hand after an adventurous day at Yosemite (the Inn is located really close to the park's entrance and easily accessible). We highly recommend this place as the best B&B to stay in the Yosemite area. We look forward to returning soon!

Grant and Beth Robinson, along with their dog, Kamina were born to be innkeepers. Our room, the spacious and beautifully furnished High Sierra Suite, had everything a traveler could need – private deck, comfortable bed, roomy closet, plus a separate vanity (stocked with toiletries and bottled water). There were also several books and magazines about Yosemite and the surrounding area. Each morning French-pressed local coffee was delivered to our door. Breakfasts were delicious and beautiful. Every evening we returned from a day in Yosemite to relax by the incredibly grand – and yet very cozy – fireplace. We enjoyed a perfect balance of peace and camaraderie throughout our weekend. We only wished we could have stayed longer and look forward to returning.

The Little Ahwahnee Inn was our first bed and breakfast experience. It surpassed any expectations that we had. Fresh brewed French Press Coffee was at our door with the local weather for the day, waiting for us every morning, and the breakfast was fresh, healthy, and very tasty. The hospitality was extraordinary. The house was immaculate, beautiful, and secluded. It is only about a 5 min drive to Yosemite, so you get the beauty without the hussle and bussle. If you are looking for a nice place to stay, some privacy, and great breakfast, this is the place.
