Yosemite National Park

We entered Yosemite through the south entrance and went first to Mariposa Grove and then to Washburn Point. After lunch we headed to Yosemite Valley and the bumper to bumper traffic. I would definitely recommend getting here early in the morning, parking your car and taking the shuttle buses around to the sites.

We stopped at Sentinel Beach (in the middle of the river near El Capitan) for me to take even more pictures of El Capitan, the river and the falls. We had some luck on our side this trip...found the parking lot for the Visitor Center (last time too many cars and took wrong roads), a great space in a packed lot and the shuttle bus got there just as we got to the stop. This is a busy area as it is near the campgrounds mostly tenters and those staying ...

Next stop was Bridalveil Falls with Cathederal Rocks next door and a parking space. This Fall is 600' and was going strong and spraying and it does run year round. There is a walkway near it and then a lot of people were climbing the large boulders to get closer for a picture...these old people didn't. The road split so it is one way on each side of the Merced River and we got better pictures of El Capitan from this side (I guess because we were further ...

Last night we parked up in the Walmart car park. It was quite safe but rather noisy. We learned how to use the furnace (because it is really cold) and all the other appliances. We have a fridge, microwave, shower and toilet but you have to turn on the water pump to use the loo. You also have to turn on the generator to use the water pump. Peeing is a noisy business!

Snowy Sequoias in Mariposa Grove

... those Giant Sequoias.

We were very impressed with our guide Shirley's knowledge of the trees and their history. The trail meandered up and down through the grove with one tree on its side allowing the visitor to see its size from another angle. We were shown a photo of ten rangers on horseback standing on this downed tree many years ago. Towards the end of our hike the sky turned blue and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hounds Tooth Inn Oakhurst

    Great place

    from

    We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of June as a base for exploring Yosemite. Hounds Tooth Inn is a beautiful place with really friendly owners who are always happy to help. The room we had was a standard but it was huge and everything was very clean and well looked after.

    Complimentary wine each evening was a lovely idea and i would definitely recommend this Inn.

    Enjoyable stay at the Hounds Tooth Inn

    from

    We stayed at the Hounds Tooth Inn two nights (3/27-3/29) in the Willow Corner room. The room was a nice size with a great two-person spa tub. The room was defintely worth the special price of $104 per night. Our stay at the Inn was exactly what we expected.

    We'll be back

    from

    One of the nicest and cleanest B&B's anywhere. Innkeepers are helpful, courteous, and friendly. Enjoy the breakfast, afternoon wine, the peace and quiet. Need two days at the Houndstooth for every day in Yosemite - the waterfalls are great, but relaxing in one of the spa rooms afterward is even better. Dinner at Duceys in Bass Lake completes a romantic and memorable getaway. Have been to the Houndstooth 5 or 6 times.....and we'll definitely be back.

    Nickle and Dimed

    from

    We booked the "Summer Cottage" for a romantic getaway to Yosemite. While the inside of the cottage was beautiful with a top-notch spa tub, comfortable bed, dual head shower and nice sitting area, I just didn't feel like we got the service there that we have had at other bed and breakfasts. I don't want the innkeepers to act cheap when I am paying $200+ for a room. First you have to sign a waiver stating that you won't use rose petals or candles in the room or you pay a $200 cleaning fee. Then we wanted to watch one of the videos in their library, for which they wanted an extra $1 rental fee. Then I noticed that you are not allowed to take red wine back into the rooms, and if you do spill it, they will charge you $100. Breakfast is very average "continental" self-serve fare, more like what you get at a chain hotel than most bed and breakfasts. Finally, when you pay your bill, there is a $5 per day energy surcharge tacked on TOP of the normal room rate and taxes. I don't know what the other accommodations in the area are like, but I would say that the Hound's Tooth offers excellent accommodations with only mediocre service.

    Cozy get-a-way vs. tourist trap

    from

    We stayed 2 nights here, wonderful. We cannot say enough about it. I will recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone that I know is going to Yosemite. It was very cozy, the hosts were so very nice and breakfast was great. The very best part of our stay was the bed! After a long day of driving, in and out of the car for pictures, hiking, etc. it was nice to know that second night we were going back to that comfy bed for a good nights sleep.

    True, its 12 miles from the south entrance of the park but it is a nice tree lined drive. Enough time to build up anticipation of your exciting day and on the return, time to wind down for a lovely dinner at El Cid the local Mexican eatery about 1/2 mile from the B&B (very casual). Which we highly recommend.

    Hound's Tooth Inn, a great experience

    from

    We went into Yosemite from route 120 and spent two nights in Groveland. We were leaving on the south end on route 41 so we chose the"Hound's Tooth Inn", about closest B&B outside the park. What a pleasure! From the smell of all the flowers in bloom as we drove in to the complimentary chilled wine waiting in the lobby to a superb breakfast of homemade quiche and fresh fruit, everything was outstanding. We had the Quilt room, which I believe was the cheapest, but it was spacious and exceptionally clean. Everything was first rate

    A Cut Above

    from

    We stayed here for one night on our way to Yosemite. Built in the late 90s, it seems brand new. We were in one of the more basic rooms. It was light, well decorated, and very clean with absolutely no flaws. There is a nice meeting/breakfast room with complimentary wine in the afternoon and breakfast in the morning. It's hard to beat. Oakhurst, itself, was more active than we expected with several restaurants, supermarkets, stores, motels, etc. If you are going to Yosemite, and you want something a cut above the average motel, I suggest you look into this inn.

    Loved the Hounds Tooth Inn

    from

    For our weekend trip to Yosemite Natl. Park in June '05, we stayed at the Hounds Tooth Inn in Oakhurst, which is a small community about 12 miles south of the Wawona/southern entrance to Yosemite. This is a wonderful B&B, although it was so quiet, that I did not feel I was in a B&B in that sense. We stayed in the "Firelight" (king) room on the second floor in the back of the inn, and it was simply perfect. Extremely clean all around including the carpet and bathroom, and tastefully decorated. This room also has a gas fireplace, although it was too warm to use it and a small fridge which we really liked having to keep drinks cold. The view from the window is of the garden and creek behind the inn with many rose bushes in full bloom. Although located off of Hwy 41, it is down a hill away from the noise and was very quiet at night during our stay. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff as well, as they were very accommodating and quick to answer email with reservation request. The value is also very good and the location in proximity to the Park is great... just keep in mind that to get to the actual valley of Yosemite is about 45 miles from the inn.... which is fine as long as you don't mind the driving.... which we did not.

    Reccomend the Hounds Tooth Inn

    from

    Spent a night in Oakhurst before travelling on to Yosemite Valley the next day...hadn't been to Oakhurst for many years and it used to be a 1-2 hotel town, so I was daunted by choices!

    Wonderful stay at the Hounds Tooth Inn

    from

    Stayed one nite at the Hounds Tooth Inn (May 2004) which is located at the southern gateway to Yosemite National Park. The Hounds Tooth Inn looks and feels brand new. The rooms are nicely decorated in a country motif, with free wine and a nice continental breakfast available in the cute front room. Videos and books are available also.

    I don't think that there is a better value ($90/ nite) in all of Oakhurst.
