A wonderful B&B, close to the northern entrance to Yosemite. Although close to highway 120, the forested surroundings make it feel miles from anywhere. The sense of tranquility is enhanced by the local wildlife i.e. hundreds of humming birds nesting in the nearby trees. Steve (the owner) has strung a line of feeders along the porch, and if you stand still, those tiny birds happily buzz in and out, less than 2 feet from your face. My wife and I stood entranced every spare minute we had. The rest of the Blackberry Inn didn't disappoint either. our large room was wonderfully comfortable and peaceful, and each morning Steve knocked up a delicious breakfast. Local dining options are limited - there is a lodge restaurant serving 'typical Americana' (Steve's words) 5 minutes walk away - but there are a few place 11 miles up the road in Groveland (including the excellent Groveland Hotel). There were too many things left unexplored on our first visit, so we have plenty of excuse to stay at the Blackberry Inn again!
