I actually was pleasantly surprised with my stay here. I found the accommodation comfortable and the location by the South entrance to Yosemite very convenient. The restaurant was also good with a rustic and well done menu.

Frozen in time
This very dated inn appeared to be “ frozen in time”. Our Mountain View room had no view of the mountain. Lighting was very poor. Room was very outdated with wooded paneling and an odd bathroom( old shower, etc). Bed creaked. This was an isolated inn between Yosemite & Sequoia National Park , not a destination in itself. We were glad that we only stayed one night.

Great location for Yosemite
We stayed for three nights and it is a fab location for Yosemite. The accommodation is comfortable, but dated and a bit cramped for four. The staff were lovely and friendly. We had an excellent evening meal. Breakfast was strange: tiny plates, no cutlery, no bacon, no jam for the toast but a very charming host! Overall a great peaceful spot to base ourselves for the park, but get your breakfast at Bread Head in Oakhurst!

We spent 3 nights at Narrow Gauge for the start of our honeymoon. The accommodations were quaint, yet perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was simple, yet very tasty. We had no plans for dinner one evening and decided to try the restaurant. We were VERY surprised. The meal was incredible. More than we could have ever expected. Overall, a wonderful start to our trip. And only 10 minutes to Yosemite.

trip to yosemite
Finally. I was able to find write a review, there isn't one on the actual site. First this is late but not forgotten. My husband Steve and Myself stayed at this resort on the 12th of June. What a surprisingly lovely place. The gentleman (Tried to remember his name? Steve, I think) who has been an employee for many years was just wonderful when we arrived. We couldn't check in as we were early so we walked the grounds. The hotel is adjacent to the narrow gauge railroad tracks which also have a moonlight or afternoon dinner trip on the train. It was so cute we checked out the train store and picnic area. Our girl at the front desk, again I lost my list of names was very sweet and accommodating. I remember booking with Sara on the phone who was very nice and helpful also. We got to our corner suite, which overlooked the running brook. It was wonderful. The bedroom was spacious, the bathroom, clean and it had a little dressing area which everyone complained was next to the toilet, I beg to differ. It had a mirror and a coffeepot so you could brew in the morning. The shower was very nice and we loved the room. We sat out on the balcony with our wine and enjoyed the beautiful forest view and left the doors open all night to hear the running brook. I would request this room again. We had no complaints at all. the bed was comfortable and the staff was wonderful. Our guy behind the front desk informed us of which roads to take, thank god, as we were going to take a different road which was the old 49er road and he recommended the newer one as it wasn't so treacherous . Thamkgod as we enjoyed the road and it was scenic. We thoroughly enjoy the staff and accommodations and would stay here again, if we are in the area. Its a long drive from vegas so it'll be a bit. Hint. If Going into the floor or valley of yosemite it takes an hour drive from either side whether you stay in mariposa(the other side) when tioga pass is closed, or fish camp. We had the pleasure of staying on each end so allow an hour drive from the gate to into the valley and it gets quite busy around 9:30 or 10. Just a little info if visiting. overall We enjoyed our visit to fish camp and the narrow gauge inn thankyou for making our visit memorable. Steve and Yvonne from Las Vegas. And my apologies for lack of names I have to write them down or I forget and I couldn't find my notes. I tried calling but couldn't get through either time. Just know it was awesome, or the restaurant with Ron, I remembered, was very nice.
