    Where to Stay in Yosemite National Park

    Published By: The Planet D
    Ready for a taste of luxury? Chateau du Sureau is a five-star property in Oakhurst. The dreamy property has a dramatic, high-end appeal, with stone turrets and swanky furnishings. It’s more of a castle than a hotel. The hotel sits on nine acres of private land and has beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It offers just ten rooms, and the small layout keeps it a quiet and exclusive atmosphere. Guests enjoy tasteful room designs, with exposed beams, fireplaces, and sometimes even canopy beds. Some room options feature luxuries like 19th-century artwork. For a luxury place to stay in Oakhurst, Chateau du Sureau is the best choice by far. And after all the excitement that Yosemite has to offer, you will welcome the refreshing luxuries Chateau du Sureau has waiting for you each day.
