“Yosemite gem w relaxing atmosphere and incredible food”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

This wonderful inn is located just outside the park gates and a quick beautiful 30 min. drive from the valley floor. We will always stay here on our Yosemite trips. The breakfasts are truly five star, and we are wine country and San Francisco foodies. The cookies each night and the special touches really are classy. The best part was having a huge soaking tub in the suite (Bramble Room) after epic hikes. We will be back with family and friends! The valley floor is crazy. Do not stay there if you like peace. You have to hike far away or go back to the Blackberry Inn to find it.

We enjoyed this B&B so much. Our room was perfect- cozy bed, luxurious bath gas fireplace, wrap around porch, and I got to hand feed a Anna hummingbird! There were hundreds of these beautiful creatures and we found them mesmerizing.

Room Tip: Get the suite-it is awesome.

The Blackberry Inn is a great B&B run by Steve McCorkle. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite which has a king size bed, 2 recliners, day bed, large seperate bathroom consisting of spa bath, large seperate shower, vanity & toilet. There is no tv or radio because this B&B is all about relaxation and getting away from it all. This room was built 2 years ago and everything is in excellent condition and of high standard. Breakfast is served dailyat 8.00am by Steve (who is also the chef) to all guests in the dining room in the main house. The Inn is very handy to Yoesmite National Park enterance, about a 30min drive. We enjoyed our 2 night stay and have no hesitation in recommending the Blackberry Inn and wish Steve continued success when he adds the 3 new rooms in the future..

I found the Blackberry Inn in TripAdvisor and the ratings were universally high. The excellent service started with driving instructions tailored to my specific needs. The inn's location is 11 miles east of Groveland and is peaceful and quiet.

The standard of the accommodation couldn't be faulted; we stayed in the Brameberry room and it was spotless. This room also has facilities for wheelchairs if needed.

The innkeeper, Steve, is friendly, helpful and cooks a delicious breakfast. He is careful to ensure that any special needs are catered for. On request he and his wife will make simple yet tasty packed lunches; all at a reasonable price.

Dinner options are available at a fairly basic local diner and then there are a few other options in Groveland, about 15 minute drive to the west.

In conclusion, the service and accommodation at the Blackberry are of the highest standard. I have already recommended it to others and will not hesitate to return in the future. The innkeepers, Steve and Alex are to be congratulated for their inn and service.

Room Tip: I think that all of the rooms would be good.

I travel every week for work and usually end up staying in over 50 hotels each year. Because no hotels in Yosemite accept my frequent guest points, I booked the Honeymoon Sweet at the Blackberry Inn for a vacation to Yosemite National Park. Today I can hostely say the Blackberry Inn was one of the most spectacular stays I have ever had at any hotel.

The Honeymoon Sweet is located on the top floor of the new addition. This was great because you had your own private entrance to your room and it didn't feel like you were inconveniencing others if you got back late when they might be sleeping. The room was clean, well furnished and absolutely beautiful. Although we were not honeymooners, there's nothing like getting into the jet tub after hiking up to Vernal falls. Between the relaxing bath, the chocolate chip cookies, mountain spring water and the comfortable bed, you'll awake rested and able to take on your plans for the next day.

Everything about this hotel was done "top notch"- no detail is overlooked. The breakfast is done with care and good wholesome ingredients, the room furnishings are supurb, small details like making sure you have fresh cream in your mini fridge everyday are taken care of, even the toilet paper meets a higher standard than what's normally found in most hotels! No one-ply here! You can tell the owners take pride in their business and they go to special lengths to be welcoming and offer a good source of knowledge about the area.

Without hesitation, I highly recommend the Blackberry Inn for any Yosemite traveler. The only areas of imprivement I can point out are would be a slow Internet connection, it would be nice to have an alarm clock with auxiliary jack to listen to some music in the evenings and it's about an hour drive to the Yosemite valley. However, the inn's charm, the inn keepers attention to detail and the cool fresh mountain air by far make up for the minor inconvenience of a long scenic drive into the Yosemite valley.

The Blackberry Inn provided an all-around perfect stay.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon Sweet isn't just for honeymooners- it' a wonderful room with a jacuzzi tub tha...

We spent two weeks in the US (starting in San Francisco and ending in Las Vegas) and this was by far our favourite place. The house is beautiful, in a lovely quiet location and Steve is very welcoming, helpful and a great cook. We stayed for two nights in the Bramble Rose room, which is a huge room on the top floor of the house. The room was spotless and very comfortable, and the cookies were a lovely treat after returning from a day in Yosemite (as was the Twining tea for a self-confessed tea addict - and it's available 24 hours).
For dinner we walked to the nearby Buck Meadows restaurant, which is a traditional-style diner. The food was good (typical huge portions) and great value (try the coconut pie if you have a sweet tooth!). Yosemite is an incredible place - make sure you spend a few days there as there is so much to do. We highly recommend the Mist Trail - knackering but well worth it!

This is an absolutely fantastic bed and breakfast. The property is in a lovely location with beautiful grounds and very peaceful. Steve, the owner, is a wonderful host and provides you with a very warm and hearty welcome. We stayed in the Berry Patch room during October for 4 nights. This is a big room, beautifully furnished and it has a fire for those cooler evenings. There are cookies waiting for you every day when you return from your adventures in Yosemite which is a lovely touch. The breakfasts are truly delicious every day and plenty of food to fill you up for the day ahead. Tea and Coffee is available for you and there is free wi-fi. The property has a huge wrap around porch which is just perfect for star gazing in the evening. Will definitely return to the Berry patch room again we hope.
