Incredible Yosemite Bed & Breakfasts for a cozy getaway with images of fireplace and pancakes with fruit

In this post, we’ll explore 11 incredible Yosemite bed and breakfasts to consider for your perfect national park getaway.

What is a bed and breakfast?

A bed and breakfast, or B&B, is a lodging option that typically offers a more intimate and personalized experience than a hotel. B&Bs are often small, family-owned establishments with just a few rooms, and they typically include breakfast in the price of the room.

Is a bed and breakfast cheaper than a hotel?

The cost of a bed and breakfast varies depending on the location, amenities, and season. In some cases, a B&B may be more expensive than a hotel, but other times it may be more affordable.

One advantage of a bed and breakfast is that the price often includes breakfast, which can save you money on meals.

A bed and breakfast typically offers more of a unique stay and a local experience. So it’s worth comparing these options against other stays, especially when visiting a remote location like Yosemite.
