Don’t let the lower price fool you!
This little inn was less than some of the other places, but it is well worth it.
The staff was super friendly and helpful. They literally were fantastic. They made our stay a relaxing time.
We stayed in a king room. The room was clean and well furnished. There was ample hot water. There is a wall a/c and heater unit that kept us toasty when it was 35 outside.
The WiFi was out when we visited and we had no cellphone service, but the hotel has satellite tv. Each room has a mini fridge, there is a microwave in the lobby.
The gift store is more of a snack food shop during the season that we visited, but it was well stocked. The restaurant was closed during the week as we were there during a slow period, but a basic breakfast is served in the lobby. (Cereal, oatmeal packets, danish, coffee or tea.)
Town is not terribly close, about 20 minutes down the road, but there are ample choices for dinner there.
Good views, friendly staff, cats allowed, it suited us. We will be back to stay again.
This place is charming and peaceful. It was just what we needed in a room.

Friendly intimate restaurant
The Buffalo Bar ant the Narrow Gauge Inn with its wooden walls and bar made from a single piece of redwood takes you back in time. The ovwerall effect is one of comfort. The menu from soup to dessert is prepared to your desire. The staff is friendly, and will treat you like family. I can recommend the daily soup, venison loin, duroc pork, Mary's chicken breast, and halibut without reservation as my wife and I ate there more than once, which attests not only to its location, but to the quality of the food.

Very Nice and Friendly Place
We were on our way to Yosemite and spent the night here.
This place is in a beautiful setting. Our room looked out into the forest near a brook - delightful.
Their restaurant is pleasant and the offer a buffet hot breakfast each morning.

You got snowed in for Thanksgiving and this place looked absolutely gorgeous. Very picturesque. We've stayed for 3 days. The staff was very friendly and helpful, although sometime I've noticed that they were a bit overwhelmed, especially in the restaurant.
Everything was great except for the hump in the middle of my bed which prevented me from getting a good night sleep.

Great location. Hotel need Renovation.
The Narrow gauge in is what could be a lovely hotel. Great location and setting but unfortunately the rooms are tired and need some money spent on them and some updating. We stayed in a mountain view room with great views and lovely decking area and chairs to sit in the morning. Unfortunately room had a musty smell. We wanted a hotel with a rustic traditional feel rather than a chain which this certainly has but rooms do need some renovations.
