Authentic Ranch house experience

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. Beds were super comfy and sheets. The property is on 100 acres and is so remote and quiet and lovely. The drive up is a 1 mile dirt road that is quite a ride, rent a car that can handle it. We saw lots of wild life just on that road alone each night! Firepit area is perfect and rustic and cool log benches. Hot tub was so relaxing at night and in morning. Loved all the games and records and fully stocked kitchen ( with cooking utensils) including dishwasher det. and laundry det. which most house rentals don't include. Beautiful stars at night and peace and quiet. Spacious bedrooms and 3 showers, helped 5 people get ready quickly. Loved having the washer and dryer! Only suggestions are better quality towels, and bedroom off kitchen needs shades. Early sun woke my daughter up each day with only sheers on. Would also love to see some flower pots on the property, as much of the planters were empty or had dry old plants in them. Its about 45 minutes to 1 hour from the park entrances, so a little drive. But we wanted the space and experience of a house, so worth it. Thank you , enjoyed our stay!

Our stay was great even though it started with a troubling surprise - a 1.5! miles of dirt road up a mountain that wasn't mentioned anywhere in the VRBO property description. Since we came with road bikes this posed a problem for us, which we were fortunate to figure out with , Steve, the kind local restaurant owner down at the gas station. Apart from that the house is well kept and provided everything we needed after a day's ride, including BBQ and hot tub under the starts.

Honest folks with a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from our stay at the ranch and absolutely loved it. The house was well equipped with anything we needed to cook, towels, etc.. It is extremely secluded as well with excellent views from the front of the house as well as on the drive up to the house from the road. I must admit, my wife and I did get a little spooked one night when we thought we heard something when we were outside, but that was simply because it was only two of us and we've seen too many horror movies. All in all, we felt right at home and were very pleased with the house and how welcome we felt. The owner was extremely helpful throughout the booking process as well.

Country retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Nice country home, isolated from the world. If really want to get away from the city this is the place. We were able to see lots of wildlife and a beautiful night sky. Every thing we could think of was at the home. Most of our days were spent roaming around Yosemite but it was great to come back and relax after.

absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here just 2 nights at the end of our USA trip and a too-fleeting visit to Yosemite. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage/grown up daughters .We had no problem booking from the UK and spoke to |Judy on the phone to confirm details. She also met us at the house shortly after our rival. The house is certainly pretty remote up a long track but we were bowled over by the location, the views, the enormous size of the place and the facilities. The photos really don;t do it justice, it is breathtaking! We had an absolutely amazing stay with everything we needed and loved lying in the hot tub at night watching the stars. We had a very very long day in Yosemite which was absolutely an experience not to be missed but it was great to get back to the solitude and quietness of the ranch . We bought food in the excellent supermarkets in Oakhurst and cooked big meals in the well equipped kitchen. We only wish we had had longer to relax in your lovely house and garden, walk in the hills and loll around in the hot tub! We would absolutely love to come back for longer if we ever get the chance, thank you so much

Last minute accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with our stay at the ranch. We loved the house and the property. After spending the day in Yosemite it was great to come here to relax and unwind. The house is very spacious and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Our dog loved running around the property and exploring. Thanks so much Judy for fulfilling our last minute accommodation and making our stay so enjoyable.
