Just outside Sequoia National Park we decided to stay at this delightful inn on the spur of the moment. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and our room was cozy with an electric fireplace already greeting us when we opened the door. It is a rustic setting but with good amenities and a comfy king bed. We had breakfast... More

The food here is excellent - both breakfast and dinner but be prepared to pay a lot!! Some tables overlook the river which is nice. Went late October - no reservations required at this time.

The view here is amazing! The dining room, both inside and outside terrace, are perched up directly over the river. It is so relaxing just to sit there and lose yourself in peaceful thought watching the river flow over and around the rocks, and to see the trout swimming under the surface or the group of ducks wading around the...

We had breakfast here twice and it was delicious! The server was friendly, efficient and low-key -- perfect for early morning. We had a beautiful view of the river. And the price was about half what we expected to pay so close to the national park.

The place had a nice view and friendly staff. Although, my steak had too much fat. It ended being half fat half meat. My wife had a burger and she enjoyed it.

2Savezz, We do strive to provide excellent service and are sadden to hear although the burger was enjoyable, the steak was not. Had we been made aware we would have loved to turned your visit around by providing a more meaty steak. We apologize for the inconvenience but we do appreciate your feedback. Thank you for sharing.

We were headed to Sequoia national Park and stopped at Gateway restaurant and lodge for breakfast. It's a very pretty setting on a small stream next to the bridge, with ducks and birds to watch from the large windows overlooking the stream. Our waitress Trinity was very friendly and efficient, and was able to place our exact a la carte... More

Kmsmolen, Thank you for stopping and giving us a try prior to entering Sequoia National Park. We are glad you enjoyed your meals as everything is made from scratch. (The blueberry muffins are my personal favorite). Trinity is an asset to our team and we will be sure to mention her on our next team meet. Thank you once again... More
