Lovely B&B

We can't wait to go back! The Inn is very charming and a great place to getaway and relax. We were served a gourmet breakfast, which was delicious. And, the Innkeepers were extremely nice and welcoming.


Wonderful Weekend

Super cute place... very sleepy town. Perfect for a day trip to Yosemite Valley.


Great anniversary stay

We will go back. We stayed in the Merlot room. The room overlooks the gardens that are well maintained by Danny. Nice king size bed. Quiet after the traffic nearby died down. This was the only negative part of our stay. The inn is within walking distance to old town shops and over a dozen restaurants. Coffee at eight delivered to our room. Breakfast at nine also in our room. Great anniversary. We'll be back.


We Loved our Room

What a great get-away! We found a new favorite in the Barretta Gardens Inn. Everything was outstanding - the service - loved Astrid and Danny, the owners - the room was perfect and it is a great value for the quality, privacy and special feeling you get there.


Fantastic time

If I were to want any sort of a change. That would be to have a firmer bed. Bed was soft and comfy, but to soft. We like a firm bed. Everything else was so outstanding and wonderful. Thank you so much, and we will be returning.
