... cliffs on either side of the lake to snow-capped mountains in the distance. Was this actually real life and not a dream? I was hiking in Yosemite, my new BFF, with my favorite person on Earth? Heaven, I’m telling you. Tueeulala Falls was flowing steadily from up the cliff, and could be viewed from far below, but Wapama Falls was up close and powerful. The falls tumbled loudy down the side of the cliff, spraying us with a refershing snowmelt mist as ...

On the way back to San Francisco we made a short stop at Raley’s supermarket again and eventually arrived back at our hotel at 7.30pm. Eric said it was the best timing for a return trip to San Francisco - luckily all the traffic was heading out of the city - I would hate that commute 5 or 6 times per week.

I think Stanford Point and Dewey Point were my favorites as well as Sentinel Dome and Taft Point.It was Incredible and possibly my favourite walk of the week, although you were presented with the problem of getting back to your car. I headed down the 4 mile trail back down to the Base of the valley, which as a great send off to Yosemite having great views on the way down; although ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Yosemite Big Creek Inn Fish Camp
Our stay was great!
My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at Big Creek Inn and we couldn't have been more pleased. Contrary to what another reviewer wrote, we were up and out early 2 monrings and Pamela prepared a to-go breakfast for us. All we had to do was mention it to her! The room was really comfortable and full of extras like chapstick and bathrobes you can use at the hot tub. There's even ice for your cooler. We had a great time in Yosemite and at Big Creek Inn and we'll definately recommend it to friends and family.
Great place to stay! Try out the jacuzzi!
The stay was great. The rooms are very clean and new and comfortable. Pam is very helpful and knowledgeable. There's even a pretty comprehensive collection of DVDs and VHS's for you to watch on the big 32" TV in your room, on both Blockbuster movies and Yosemite videos. There are also some travel books on Yosemite. The balcony is wonderful for star gazing, and the jacuzzi on the deck is by far the best one I've used. You can crank up the bubble level to really massage your muscles instead of just feeling bubbles on your skin like all the public jacuzzi's. Temperature is also adjustable. It was heaven. Breakfast is very tasty, although the selection varies based on how many people are having breakfast. Pam's a very good cook. We stayed at the medium-sized room, it wasn't huge but was plenty big for my girlfriend and I.
A couple of minor gripes: (1) hair dryer is available upon request, but if you realize late at night that you need a hair dryer and can't reach Pam, you're out of luck. It's not a problem if you know this ahead of time, just let Pam know in advance so she can place it in your room when you arrive. (2) breakfast is served at 8:30. If you want to leave earlier than that, you don't get breakfast. (3) There's no phone in your room. You can make local or toll-free calls (calling card calls) from the phone in the common area.
All in all, the stay was very pleasant and enjoyable. I'll definitely stay here again if I visit Yosemite. Highly recommended!
A Perfect Retreat!
An extraordinary B&B! The accommodations and our hostess far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are divine, the setting is absolutely beautiful and Pamela's attention to the needs of her guests makes for a most memorable vacation! We recommend this B&B without hesitation...we'll be back!
This is a classy B & B with a most gracious and enjoyable hostess, Pamela. The breakfasts were wonderful. She helped us with activities both in and out of the park. We relaxed on the decks and in the hot tub and the bubble baths. At night, we could enjoy watching movies on the large TV in the room. We particularly recommend the larger room. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
This is an awesome place to stay!!!
We have stayed at over 10 B&Bs and this place is at the top!! Yosemite is an amazing place to visit and staying at the Big Creek Inn just made the vacation perfect. The Innkeeper, Pamela, was a wonderful host. She has thought of everything to make your stay great. The fireplace in the room was so cozy, the breakfast each morning was delicious, Pamela was so helpful in providing supplies and suggestions in making each day wonderful. My husband really enjoyed the coffee/tea service. From the time we walked into the B&B until the time we left, we truly felt comfortable and at ease. It was such a great little romantic get away.
The Ideal Get-Away
In 2003 six of us took over the Big Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast for a week-end, and set out to explore Yosemite National Park. We had a wonderful time, but regretted that we did not allow any time to simply relax and enjoy the Inn. We had no idea it would be such a wonderful relaxing environment. It is WAY more than just a place to crash after a busy day of hiking and exploring. The beds are absolute heaven. The hot tub is wonderful and takes away all the days aches and pains. The enormous wood deck overlooks pine trees, a meadow and the Big Creek stream, and is a wonderful place to relax and watch the deer, racoons, jays, hummingbirds, etc. The Inn Keeper, Pamela, is a great cook and accommodates special dietary requests. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and has given us lots of ideas for new Yosemite advendtures. We came back this year for four days, and have already made our reservations for next year. This is a very special place. Give it a try ~ you won't be sorry!
Immaculate accommodations, service for the most discriminating
We chose the Big Creek Inn hoping there might be a bit of a personal touch, and could not have been more pleasantly surprised; it far surpassed our expectations. The are able to accommodate the most discriminating guest.
First, the Fish Camp location is great. Their secluded grounds are rustic with a hammock down by the stream, and a wonderful large deck area with new hot tub.
Secondly, the living quarters are immaculate; bright and cheery, not rustic at all. The sunny, comfortable rooms have a touch of high-tech to make your stay more enjoyable. High quality beds, gas log fireplaces, decks with rocking chairs, TVs with VCR/DVD players.
Third, the innkeeper knows the area well and provides great advice, such as best places to jog, excellent restaurants, secret local swimming holes, and more. There is a well-stocked library of books and tapes about Yosemite, movies and games, and a refrigerator filed with sodas.
The Big Creek Inn hospitality and fine taste allow your stay to be most memorable. This is definitely at the top of the list of favorite places we'll be returning to, and we'll feed the jays peanuts again from the balcony!
What a wonderful place!
This place was a bit of heaven! The innskeeper Pamela was a gracious hostess and made our stay very enjoyable. We only wish that we could have stayed longer. The rooms spared no expense. She put a lot of thought, time and expense into everything. As an added bonus, she is a wonderful cook! The hot breakfast's were awesome. She really got your day going by having a full tummy. We will definitely go back and it will probably be sooner than anyone thinks!
Enjoy and the expense is well worth it.
We just got back from our stay at the Big Creek Inn. It is a beautiful, immaculate Bed and Breakfast. Pamela, the inn keeper, made sure that everything was perfect for our stay. She had many suggestions for things to do and places to go inside and outside the park. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bed linens are very luxurious. Each room has a balcony for relaxing, reading, or star gazing. A beautiful deck and hot tub have recently been added. I suggest laying in one of the hammocks in the afternoon and taking a nap. We will definitely go back to this inn.
What a wonderful place to get away from it all
What a wonderfull place. The welcome is warm and personal. The bedrooms are decorated to an extremley high standard and kept spotlessly clean.
Pamela, the host, did everything she could to ensure her guests enjoyed their stay. The breakfast was family style each morning and the menu changed daily but was always well prepared and wholesome to set you up for your day in the park. Should you need a place tpo stay near the park I would recommened this to anyone who enjoys real comfort and being pampered.
