This was a really sweet place to stay. We had Meadowlark cabin which had a large-ish kitchen/diner which was open plan with the queen sized bed. In the other room was 2 more beds where the children slept and the shower room was off their room. The beds had patchwork quilts complete with a teddy or bunny to cuddle - very sweet. Lauren and Bill are very helpful and gave us some suggestions as to where to go and where to eat. We toasted marshmallows under the stars at night which is a lovely memory to have. I guess the only downside is the location which despite only being 2 miles from the Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite, you still have 20 odd miles to travel to get to the valley. So it does take a bit of travelling each day to get to where you want to be. However , I guess unless you are actually staying in the valley, Sunset Inn is possible not much further away than other accommodation. It's just something we hadn't realised before we arrived - how far the entrances can be from where you actually want to go for the day. But back to Sunset - it is a lovely place to stay if you want to commune with nature and it provided a huge contrast for us as we stayed in city type hotels for the rest of the trip. I don't want to put anyone off with the details about the location- just be aware you do have to drive distances to eg, the valley, Mariposa Grove, Glacier rd, the meadows.
