We had a fantastic 2 night stay at the Ranch!!!! Upon arrival we were greeted with champagne and the hot tub bubbling away...very nice touch!! The house is huge and is very well presented. Great kitchen and everything is there for you to create great meals after a busy day at Yosemite. The drive to the Valley floor in Yosemite can vary depending on traffic. Anywhere from 1 to 1.5 hours is a fair assumption. Judy was fantastic to deal with and was quick to respond to any requests etc. From Mariposa is approx 10-15 mins drive. Good supermarket in town behind Burger King to stock up on the needs to create wonderful meals and enjoy the peace and serenity of the ranch. Would of loved to have stayed longer than 2 nights as the peace and quiet on top of the hill at the ranch is fantastic!!!
