    The remodeled Stagecoach Inn was perfect for my family. The pictures on the website were spot on. We each had our own space but there was plenty of sitting areas to be together. The kitchen was stocked with more than enough cooking and serving pieces. We would definitely return.

    We truly enjoyed staying at Tip Top Inn. It is not only a great place to stay but be sure and be there when it is time for a sunset. It is gorgeous. The kitchen has everything you need, including spices. So don't go shopping until you check out the spice cabinet. The house is an easy drive to Yosemite and would definitely recommend Tip Top Inn to friends and family.

  • Party of 5 for Yosemite Adventure


    We stayed at this lovely property and leveraged it for our Yosemite adventures. The property has been beautifully restored and has some cool historical artifacts. You can explore, check out their fruit trees, explore the pond. If you want to disconnect you can or if you need to stay connected the internet worked well. We explored all over Yosemite, Sierra national park. We went horseback riding and did took a ride on the sugar pine railroad .
