We booked our five night stay at Sunset Inn on the recommendation of our daughter who stayed there four years ago as part of her honeymoon trip. The advice was excellent - Sunset Inn is an absolutely idyllic valley, only two miles outside the entrance to Yosemite.
The booking process was very easy and the information that the owners, Lauren and Bill, sent us was so useful. The directions were excellent and the advice about shopping was particularly invaluable and meant that we picked up our provisions for the entire stay on the way.
Sugar Pine Cabin was so comfortable and well equipped that we enjoyed cooking our meals and spending cosy evenings in the cabin. Though it was cold and snowy during our stay, we were lovely and warm with the very efficient (and very easy to light) wood-burning stove.
Lauren and Bill were so kind and helpful and gave us lots of suggestions about hiking trails and places to see. We were particularly grateful for their recommendation to visit Hetch Hetchy Valley, where we spent a truly memorable day.
Sunset Inn is a very special place, peaceful calm and very beautiful, and it provides a wonderful base from which to explore the wonders of Yosemite.
