About the Owner and Staff

About the Owner and Staff

Aung Oo became the proud owner of The Narrow Gauge Inn in 2011. Coming from Burma, he became enchanted with the Inn and Restaurant the moment he arrived to the Inn's home at the south entrance to Yosemite National Park.

Aung was embraced by his experienced staff that he was fortunate to inherit. Each staff member devotes their time to offering travelers professional information to enhance their travels to Yosemite. One of the many delights of staying at The Narrow Gauge Inn and dining in the Restaurant is our staff, who is sure to make each stay memorable.

Our goal is to make every guest feel welcome and appreciated.
