We were married here on October 28, 2017 and the experience far exceeded all expectations. It was literally the wedding of our dreams. Carina, the on-site coordinator, was the best! She attended to... every detail. The grounds are gorgeous and the food is amazing! I hope one day that my daughter will have her wedding here. Thank you for making our day so special! See More

We were at the Chateau for 2 nights in MAY 2017. The service and the property was excellent. We also are at the restaurant 2 times and both were exceptional. Rani was so kind but all of the staff were... so kind and the guests were also so warm and inclusive. See More

Unless you paid for the service, the unprofessional staff is unwilling to take care of the customer.

My husband and I were there to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We typically travel to Europe once a year and Erna nailed it. Couldn't believe we were actually in Oakhurst. Staff was awesome, e...specially Jordon who made us feel so welcome. We have previously eaten at the Elderberry House and once again, the food was exceptional. I would highly recommend staying here. The most relaxed I have been in a long time. Loved the Elderberry room. You could tell a women designed the bathroom. Very functional. See More

My husband and I stayed at the Chateau for our wedding night as well as the night before the big day. We were spoiled from the first moment until the very end of our stay. We were upgraded on our night, and although I could wax on and on, I will concisely say that the Rosehip room was comfortable, romantic, and luxurious. We spent a delicious evening at Erna's Elderberry House with our family. The attention to detail was evident as soon as we opened our menus and noted the warm personalized welcome printed on top. Every bite was delicious. On our wedding day, they accommodated an earlier breakfast time so I could get hair and makeup done. Since the grand salon had better light, they enthusiastically allowed me and my makeup artist to use it. The beautiful and ornate grand salon also provided the stage for me to enter and receive the first tears and "gushings" of the day. Although not intrusive the staff was always available for any need as we were getting ready. They were also kind with the flattery, which no bride minds hearing on her wedding day. After I was completely ready, they all lined up as I exited the Chateau. I"m not sure if it was the pearls or just walking down the beautiful chateau stairs that made me feel like a princess on that warm and sunny morning. It was just magical. After our ceremony and pictures in the park, we came back to a perfect bubble bath and stroll through the gardens before dinner. Once again at Erna's Elderberry House, we dined from a prix fixe menu, plus several additional tasty courses and treats. I must mention that they had once again personalized our dinner menu with a warm welcome. Erna stopped by to say congratulations midway through dinner, and she was just as charming and lovely as I had imagined. After dinner we returned to our room where the turndown service had included flower petals and chocolates on the bed. They never missed an opportunity to make us feel special and looked after. The Chateau is truly an enchanting, warm, comfortable, and elegant venue and space. We will definitely be back! See More

I don't know how you wouldn't give five stars. Every aspect of this experience was impeccable. My wife and I celebrated our tenth anniversary, (also our honeymoon) there. Upon arrival we were treated if though they enjoyed serving us. I was blown away. I will not wait another ten years to go back! See More

My family is already thinking of when we can all go back to this beautiful spot. We had 4 beautiful rooms and dinner at their incredible restaurant. My husband had car trouble and Reni took personal... care of it all so we could all enjoy our family time. What special people-they truly know what hospitality is all about. Thank you for the perfect family memory. See More

The most amazing food, service and landscapes you will find at a chateau. We had someone park our car, free snacks at our arrival. It was one of the most romantic trips I have had with my husband! Per...fect for a getaway with your significant other! See More

It is a privilege to stay at Chateau du Sureau. This summer, our family had this wonderful opportunity. Located in a pristine area close to Yosemite, the hotel exudes peace and tranquility. There's a ...beautiful landscape, tons of birds and even a fox shows up from time to time. The staff is extremely polite, professional, and cater to you with attention to every little detail. The food that Erna, the owner, provides for her guests is a memorable experience for those who appreciate exquisitely prepared and served gourmet food. We were so happy for the few days we spent here, that I can guarantee that we are sure going to someday return! See More

Wonderful getaway. Truly have never had that level of service in the Inn and at the restaurant. Top shelf in every single way. Erna, you done good!

Celebrating our 10th year wedding anniversary > 6.14.13 we've dined in many truly great restaurants, in the United States and Europe. In our opinion, Erna's Elderberry House may well be the finest re...staurant in the World! There's no way to describe it. See More
