We stayed during a period of wood fire's and so the visability was not perfect and the air was 'a bit dirty' but this was not all all to blame on the owners of this beautiful B&B. We hoped to get a room on 'ground level' but only the 'upstaris' outside room was available. no worry's... we took our lugage upstairs... This room was beautiful designed, but maybe it could be a bit bigger...We, Europeans are used to bigger beds and in a queen bed we were very close together :-) The room was very cosy, clean and from the balcony you should have a wonderful view ( when the smoke was gone ) The owner Mss Sherilee & het mother were very friendly !!! and breakfast was almost a 'feast' a great start of the day ! Thank you very much Sherilee !! If you're looking for a great place to stay, close to the entrance of Yosemite Nat. Park, don't hesitate !! this is a great place and in Oakhurst or Mariposa are good restaurants !

Amazing B&B!

This place was far above what we expected. Kathy and Sheri were awesome, so friendly and helpful. The place was beautifully decorated and so clean it looked as if we were the first guests ever. The breakfasts were delicious. We will definitely go back there. We loved it!

Hidden Gem

4.8 on September 13, 2017

We were traveling with our daughter and her fiancè had previously made reservations at one of the major hotel chains and switched to Natures Inn B&B. We stayed in the El Capitan room which fit us perfectly. Very delicious breakfast each morning and we utilized the kitchen for dinners. Really felt like home away from home. We will recommend to our friends and we hope to be back too. Sherry is a wonderful host full of information and a great cook.

A perfect place to stay when visiting Yosemite

Sherri, our 'innkeeper', is the perfect host - friendly and welcoming, with a wealth of local knowledge, and the most amazing breakfasts! We followed her '1 day to visit the park' suggestion which helped us see all the waterfalls and beautiful scenery. Great suggestions for places to eat and other options away from the Park, and a warm sunny pool to dip into, with breathtaking views. Highly recommended.

Inn the Woods suites - this place is top class

4.2 on August 31, 2017

We stayed in the self catering suites adjacent to the inn itself. The welcome was genuine and there was amazing attention to detail. These people know what good hospitality looks like. There was a breakfast tray which was refreshed every couple of days. They had adequate kitchen items for our short stay (3 nights). No washing machine in the unit but no doubt they will have thought of this too, I didn't ask about it. The rooms were spacious, decor very woods but in a high end way. We had a hinge deck outside our bedroom. There is a separate garden area and games room for all the units to use. We absolutely loved our stay. Very reasonably priced for the standard of accommodation. Would recommend to anyone who wants luxury accommodation near Yosemite National Park. The drive is worth it. We were self catering so that is why the rating is 3/5. No option for N/a.

Best stay during ou vacation to the US !

This was a perfect place for a family. We were two adults and three children. amneties are just great. you can see that thought has been put to every little detail in order to make it a comfortable stay. The Innkeeper is very nice and helpful. Very good breakfast. A little far from Yosemitte Valley (1.5 hours tedious drive) but worth it. We drove one day to Yosemitte and during the next day we went to Bass Lake which is a 20 min drive and had a great day there (rented a Patio boat).

A wonderful experience.

We stayed in El Capitan for three nights. It was nice and clean and stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, including air conditioning and a washer and dryer. They even provided laundry soap!. The pool was a great way to cool off after a long day hiking in hot weather. The breakfasts were outstanding and presented beautifully. Finally, the hosts are very friendly, but left us alone when we didn't need them. They shared their knowledge of the area and did everything they could to make or vacation a success. If we are ever in the area again we will stay there again. Thank you for your kindness.

Beautiful property... wonderful breakfasts!

It was a nice and cozy place to stay with wonderful views, a refreshing pool, and delicious breakfasts. The Inn keeper was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint would be the lack of a dresser in our room (Vernal Falls), so other than hanging a few items we lhad to live out of our suitcase. If I am ever in the area again I would definitely return to this gem!
