My fiance and I decided on a whim to visit Yosemite and ended up booking a few nights at the Yosemite Blue Butterfly Inn. We could not be more grateful to have found this place! Liz and Ron made our experience such a memorable trip. Their property is welcoming, pristine/clean, cozy and the location can't get any better- it sits directly alongside the Merced River. Each room has a balcony that overlooks it! In addition, it is only a 5 min drive to one of the Yosemite entrances. Another added bonus- Liz's breakfasts were exceptional! Thank you Liz and Ron, we can't wait to visit again. -Christine & Daniel
The facility is fantastic, built specifically as a B&B, and it works perfectly. It is located just outside the west entrance of the park and Ron and Liz are excellent hosts. You can tell they know what they're doing and they enjoy doing it. Although Yosemite wasn't as spectacular as usual due to the numerous wildfires and smoke, Ron and Liz made up for it by directing us to other local destinations where the conditions were better. All in all a fantastic trip. If we ever return to the area, we will definitely stay here, and if not, we will never forget our gracious hosts.
The Blue Butterfly Inn offers an incredible proximity to the park, comfortable accomodations, tasty breakfast and the most down to earth hosts you'd ever want to meet. You'd be hard pressed to find a better option for visiting Yosemite. Thank you Ron & Liz!
The entire house is absolutely gorgeous. The location is breathtaking, with the veranda overlooking the river. Watching the humming birds at breakfast is a delight. Our hosts are very knowledgable about Yosemite and about the antiques throughout the B&B. We had a wonderful time and will return.
"Liz and Ron should be commended for having a website that accurately describes the atmosphere and beauty of the B and B. The hosts are friendly and knowledgeable about the area; the house is gorgeous and rooms spacious and nicely appointed; the breakfasts on the patio overlooking the Merced River were just as they promised--scrumptious; the number of hummingbirds were extraordinary. And yes, The Yosemite Blue Butterfly Inn IS just down the road from the El Portal entrance to the park, and only 11 miles fromYosemite Valley. We highly recommend the YBBI, and we will come back some day, God willing."
