Château du Sureau

Oh nice. We are staying here when we go to Yosemite... Château du Sureau. It made the Conde Nast Gold List 2009. Fancy!

Fodor's Review:

This romantic inn, adjacent to Erna's Elderberry House, is straight out of one of Grimm's fairy tales. From the moment you drive through the wrought-iron gates and up to the enchanting castle, you feel pampered.

Every room is impeccably styled with European antiques, sumptuous fabrics, fresh-cut flowers, and oversize soaking tubs. Fall asleep by the glow of a crackling fire amid feather-light goose-down pillows and Italian linens, awaken to a hearty European breakfast in the dining room, then relax with a game of chess in the grand salon beneath an exquisite mural – or play chess on the giant board amid tall pine trees off the impeccably landscaped garden trail. Cable TV is available by request only. In 2006 the Château added a stunning spa.
