My first comment about the Apple Blossom is that Candy was very welcoming and helpful during my husband’s initial phone contact before we made our reservation and when I emailed her about the amenities at the Inn, she got back with me quickly with complete information. This is always a good sign. We like and appreciate when we can reach out to the owner of the property prior to our stay. She indicated during that conversation that if we got up early to go into the park that she would have breakfast items available to us if we couldn’t be there for her normal for breakfast that is served at 8:30 AM. The bed and breakfast is tucked away a little off Highway 41 and at night is a little tricky to find until you establish a landmark. We took the scenic route, 49, to the Inn on our arrival day and unfortunately ran a little bit late due to treacherous mountain roads, but we gave Candy an hour notice that we would not be there by 7 PM and she simply asked that we call when we arrived. We were there by 7:15 and she was at the building and came out to greet us as soon as we arrived. We appreciated the personal touch she gave to her guests. She showed us around the Inn and handed us the keys to our room upstairs as well as showed us our private bathroom across the hall. I will say that I did not understand initially that the bathroom would be across the hall but having stayed at bed and breakfasts before where we had a shared bathroom, I was still happy to have our own space. She has nice bath robes in the closet of each room so if you need to travel back-and-forth it’s easy to slip on a robe and not be concerned if you bump into the other guests staying upstairs in the second bedroom. Both the bedroom and bathroom were clean when we arrived. I tend to be very particular about neatness and having items in my accommodations that are fairly new and updated but I would say the apple blossom has more of a 1980s feel but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Candy opened the Inn about 15 yrs ago and has run it pretty much on her own. One of the days during our stay there was a power outage that affected the entire county, all the way up to the fancy lodges in Yosemite. I believe her guests were all out and about so no one was inconvenienced, but she was very concerned about getting her rooms turned around for her new check-ins and the fact that guests would not have a/c or water if they returned before power was restored. On those subjects, water pressure is a bit low and shower heads a bit low and the tub does not drain quickly as stated in other reviews but did not find it a big issue. The air was comfortable in the building but at night you would want to close and lock your bedroom door so there is the option of leaving a small window open with use of ceiling fan or use the room a/c but it was very loud. The one night I turned it on I literally could not get to sleep due to the noise, although my spouse was already asleep and it did not wake him. Newer, quieter units might be my suggestion or better ventilation into the rooms from house unit. My biggest disappointment was I would like to have sat on the quiet balcony outside our upstair room but it was full of leaves, white chairs were dirty and had spider webs. My suggestion would be to keep up that space for guests who want to sip a glass of wine out there under the stars. Also I would have liked a more comfortable upholstered chair to sit in in the room as ours had a wooden swivel chair that seemed a bit unsafe as I tripped over the leg. But the room was clean and nice. Bed comfortable. I will say that the first morning we came downstairs, Candy immediately asked if there was anything we needed. Candy was very diligent to get breakfast started and finished on time and had it displayed on an easy serve-yourself table inside the kitchen. She had coffee going and juice options as well as tea and hot chocolate options. We had a broccoli and cheese quiche which she said she got from a local baker. On the other mornings we got freshly made pancakes and French toast along with a bowl of wonderful fresh fruit of which included blackberries that they pick there on the property. We were slightly disappointed not to get apples from her apple trees on the property but she explained the situation with deer getting to her apple trees. She has beehives also on the property and has been known to serve some of her honey but I did not see any while we were there and then reading prior reviews I see she used to include bacon or sausage with breakfast and we had no meat while we were there but I won’t say that that’s a necessity for me. She did have yogurt and granola out which was a somewhat healthier option although maybe a plain Greek yogurt would be a better option is not so much sugar for those of us that try to avoid it. After breakfast is served, she immediately cleans up the kitchen and leaves her guest in private but there’s always morning conversation in the kitchen with either Candy herself or the other guests. We made friends from both Texas and California while there and met some other guests that were staying from Florida like us. We were able to chat and find common interests and also get advice about what to do in the area or simply what other fun activities the other guess were doing during their stay. I did not speak with anyone who was in anyway unhappy about the accommodations and one of the couples had been there several times over the years as they have family in the area. Because the mornings are fairly comfortable this time of year, instead of serving people inside the living room area we had breakfast out on the deck near the hot tub. We did see the hot tub, while on that subject and mention from the other couple that I believe they used it but it was kept covered and I do not recall candy offering use of the hot tub to us directly or any instruction on how to use it. Many people traveling to the inn might be surprised to find out that the TVs at the inn are only for use with VHS movies. Frankly, we did not have time to watch TV as we were out and about enjoying Yosemite so it really did not affect us and there is Wi-Fi there so my suggestion would be have your smart phone or tablet available as you can watch TV on those devices as an alternative. Candy does supply games and one family had a game of Monopoly going and admitted that that was the first time they’ve had sat down to a board game in a long time and they spend at least two nights playing it in the downstairs living area. So not having a television probably brings families together and what could be bad about that? If you are the type that likes a hotel room that comes with all the modern amenities then I would say an Inn like this is probably not for you ... but if you like a nice wholesome surrounding (home away from hime feel) and other people to meet and get to know, then this is the perfect spot for you. You definitely get a personal touch here and after you stay here you realize the hard work and commitment the owner has to her inn and guests. Any bad reviews seen on the Inn were likely due to misunderstandings or language issues as we discovered there are many many foreigners that visit that area at this time of the year and it’s understandable just see how there could be a lack of communication or miscommunication. I guarantee if you have any issue once you arrive, Candy will do her best to accommodate you. We enjoyed our stay and I would likely stay again if we go back to that area. I First thought that the rooms were pricier than what we have experienced in the past but then it is California and typically prices are higher there then other parts of the country. Overall, I think anyone staying here would be pleased.

This is a lovely location and home, and the owner is very helpful and accommodating. Our bed was comfortable, and we were able to get a very early breakfast (granola, yogurt, coffee, etc.) so that we could drive to Yosemite park early enough to get parking. The location is quiet, and in the mornings we heard quail and woodpeckers. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening as well--it's got a great view! There are good restaurants in nearby Oakhurst, and a visit to Mariposa Coffee down the road is highly recommended for excellent beans. My only advice would be to understand that it is a bit of a hike to the park: it takes at least 30 minutes to get to the entrance by Mariposa Grove, and then if you drive to Yosemite Valley from there, it's another hour or so--get there early (8 a.m.) to get a parking spot!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Apple Blossom Inn. This is a comfortable and quiet place, with a friendly host. The hot tub, with a lovely view out over the valley, is a perfect place to unwind after a day of hiking (or fighting with Yosemite traffic). We would most certainly stay here again on a return trip.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at the Apple Blossom Inn. Candy was a very gracious hostess and the small B&B was everything we hoped for. The hot tub and beautiful views and proximity to Yosemite were the highlights of our stay. We especially enjoyed visiting with Candy.

candy is by far the most understanding and accommodating hostess i've ever done business with. her adorable house is well kept and thoroughly themed; she gave us pamphlets and maps to help us enjoy our stay and help out with the long drive into yosemite proper, and kept lamenting that we left too early for her to cook us breakfast. i got very sick the weekend we were originally supposed to come and she let us reschedule free of charge, and when my little brother accidentally broke one of the fan pulls she refused to take money for repairs, saying it was "just part of b&b maintenance." the place is very nice, affordable, and homey, and candy's kindness definitely made up for the long drive into the park. she manages the whole place all by herself and does a great job! if you don't mind a bit of a trek into the park, you should definitely consider staying here.
