Within a short distance of Yosemite National Park, the Apple Blossom Inn is nestled in the midst of an organic apple orchard, and is surrounded by the beauty of the Oakhurst valley and Sierra Mountains. The country style two-story Inn sits on 5.5 lovely landscaped acres. The Inn offers 3 single guest rooms and a 2 bedroom suite, all decorated in Apple or Blossom themes with antiques and collectibles. The sitting room is 'deliciously' decorated, filled with reading materials, and offers cozy comfort in winter by the woodburning stove. Relax in the jacuzzi under a spectacular starlit sky after a busy day exploring the many wonders of the Yosemite area. In addition to the wonders of Yosemite National Park, there are many other things to do and see while in the area - Bass Lake where you can swim, boat, jet-ski, hike or picnic, take a ride on the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad, enjoy the beauty of the Sierra National Forest, take a drive along the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway and take a gambler's chance at Chukchansi Gold Casino. There are also excellent dining options as well as museums, art galleries, antique shops and movie theaters. A delicious Candy 'Apple' breakfast is served each morning, in the dining room in winter, or while enjoying the view from the deck in the summer. Favorites include Apple Blossom Pancakes and Candy Apple French Toast.

Dont go to this place

1.0 on January 15, 2018

I WARN YOU! Don't ever sleep at this place. The lady called ''Candy'' isn't so sweet as her name is saying. We called before c'oclock in the evening the day that we would arrive. To tell her that we would arrive between 9 and 9:30. Candy informed us that it was not a problem at all. Because her B&B is located in the middle of nowhere and there were no signs at all we had a hard time finding it. We arrived 9:45 that evening. (15 minutes later!) There was no one there and she left a note that we had to call her. When I called her she was REALLY mad and she was extremely rude. Calling us things and saying that we did what we wanted to make her awake. She hang up in my ear. 3 minutes later I hear someone curing loudly and out of a sudden she was standing right in front of us. She was MAD and looked very aggresive towards us and while she was speaking to us she was shouting like we were sort of animals. Me and my boyfriend were honestly afraid of her. Finally she left. And we only slept for 3 hours because we were so afraid and felt so uncomfortable. The next morning Candy was nowhere to be found. No apologies. Nothing at all! We went to Yosemite Park and were there for only 3,5 hours because we had no energy to do hikes and felt really bad about the whole situation. When we headed home to the B&B Candy didn't even make up the bed or anything. I gave her a call to talk about the situation and she find it strange that we decided to go to another B&B. Later she hang up AGAIN in my ear for the second time. Don't go to this place. She ruined the last part of our holiday and we will never get this experience back of Yosemite.

Innkeeper Response
As a sole Innkeeper, my guests' arrival time is very important to me as it determines my whole day's schedule. My checkin times are 4 - 7 pm but I always strive to accommodate my guests' anticipated arrival time by either having the room ready early or providing checkin information by phone or email for those guests expecting to arrive later. I believe these were guests who requested an early checkin of noon - 2 pm, which I accommodated, but after waiting all day, they didn't actually arrive till nearly 11 pm. After they woke me, I attempted to check them in over the phone but they didn't speak English very well, so I needed to get up, get dressed and walk up to the Inn to meet them. When I arrived they were very angry that I didn't have anyone onsite to check them in, and I was understandably but regrettably grumpy too, but never spoke to or treated them as they have described. I offer 2 different breakfast options...a hot breakfast at a specified time or a self-serve continental breakfast for those guests who wish to leave early or sleep in. They requested the continental breakfast which was available to them and they had already left for the Park when I arrived the next morning. I sincerely believe that language issues exasperated the situation, frustrating all of us, and for that I am sorry. Please read the rest of my 14 years of very positive reviews and make your own conclusions about this one.

We had a wonderfully relaxing couple of days at the Apple Blossom Inn. Plenty of things nearby to see and a quiet and peaceful setting for just relaxing and unwinding from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Candy was personable and friendly and was always ready with a excellent breakfast every morning. Highly recommend.

Great cosy bedroom with a friendly hostess, made us feel welcome and made our stay comfortable. Breakfast was fresh and homemade delicious banana and nut waffles and apple blossom pancakes and apple sauce. Comfy bed and short drive to entrance of Yosemite.

Wonderful B&B Close to Yosemite

We would definitely return to Apple Blossom Inn. Our hostess warmly welcomed us upon arrival, made very tasty hot breakfasts and also created a marvelous picnic lunch. The upstairs bedroom with closet & full bath were nicely decorated and a good size for 2 people. The downstairs family room had lots of seating and snacks too. We enjoyed the outside deck as well where we ate breakfast. This is a nice quiet retreat after being in the crowded Yosemite valley.

Just like home but with mountains and Candy

My three sisters and I had the best time staying at the Apple Blossom Inn in mid-June. Candy made us feel right at home. When we returned from hiking around Yosemite, Bass Lake, the nearby Lewis Creek Trail or visiting Mariposa, we jumped into the jacuzzi or did some bird watching from the balcony, and then took over the kitchen, playing 10000 (aka Farkle) and having a glass of wine or two. Then we broke out the VHS tapes and watch Ferris Bueller late into the night. In the morning, we enjoyed the continental breakfast on the days we wanted to get into the park early. But we really loved the banana nut waffles Candy made us when we decided to stay in later one morning. Other guests and even Candy joined us in the kitchen to chat sometimes, surrounded by the pretty Pfalzgraff "Delicious" pattern on the china, curtains and seat cushions. It was really a joy and I whole heartedly recommend the Apple Blossom Inn.

Great but out-of-the-way place for a Yosemite visit

4.6 on June 22, 2017

We had a fantastic stay at the Apple Blossom Inn. Candy was extremely helpful, and made herself instantly available in case we needed anything. Our room was very spacious and quiet; it came well-outfitted with soap, shampoo, and lotion. And the breakfasts in the morning were beyond delicious. The only drawback is the Inn's location — it's about 90 minutes from there to Yosemite. As first-time visitors, we didn't understand the distance, but I can't say it would keep us from coming back. Highly recommended.

Relaxing Stay

What a wonderful vacation on our anniversary staying heresy Candi's Inn. Mornings are amazing with birds chirping and a gourmet breakfast she prepared from scratch every day. Evening is so peaceful and relaxing with a quiet house seemingly all to yourself. The hot tub overlooking the forest and clear views of the stars made our stay so wonderful. it's so relaxing here we were tempted to not do Yosemite and relax here all day. If you are coming for Yosemite definitely plan a full day to stay and relax with the birds and deer here.

Perfect location near Yosemite - Candy is a treat

Yosemite is one of my favorite places in the world, and I love the town of Mariposa nearby. Fortunately, there were no rooms available in town so I had to go just a little further afield - and stayed at this delightful B&B. Overall, a great experience, although the bed was a bit soft for our preference. I would definitely stay here again.

Amazing place

This accomodation was fantastic. The host is so warm and welcoming. She provided me with a warm welcome every day, with a broad smile. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Also I got great insight into what to see and where to go. Highly recommend
