Step back in time to a 1858 historic stage stop on 7 country acres on the way to Yosemite. We're located 50 minutes from 2 of the Park entrances on Hwy 140 & 41 as well as 10 minutes to the Gold Rush history of Mariposa. Our rooms are decorated in antiques with carved high queen size beds and private baths that include shower & clawfoot tub. We have WIFI in the Garden Gate Room and in the main house, where we serve a delicious full breakfast in the company of friendly cats.

I loved this place and the whole stay. The hosts were just fabulous and so much taking care. They knew everything and gave us the best tips for things to see and to do. Even historic backgrounds. And very historic was the ranch too. But I also enjoyed the WIFI in my room. The breakfast was unbelievable. Better than any hotel. The property is big you can even go for walks. It is surrounded by nature. The room and bath was delicately furnished with antiques and super clean and nice. It's a gem. And Willie and Diana made me forget I was waiting for Yosemite to re-open after the shutdown... When they finally openend I had the most wonderful experience because Willie and Diana had worked out the perfect plan for me. Thank you!

We stayed from 5/31-6/2/2013--We were in the Garden Gate which was nicely appointed, charming, clean and comfortable--so comfortable we had the best nights sleep here while traveling. Garden Gate includes a main bedroom and sitting area with a secondary room with daybed and a bathroom. The room includes period furnishings and even has a replica clawfoot tub/shower. The Garden Gate also has a small front patio with gate, table with chairs, and a small bench. We had breakfast each day which included fresh fruit, blueberry pancakes, quiche, Welsh cakes, juice, fresh roasted coffee (roasted locally). Willie & Diana were wonderful and very knowledgeable about the area. They gave us some nice reccomendations for local restaurants and such. We will stay here again!

We are just home from a three night stay at this wonderful B&B. I would highly recommend it, and would love to return. There are only two rooms to choose from: it's a small place. This fits us well, as we don't need a crowd to have a great time. The location is picturesque, and the room we had (Garden Gate) was clean, a good size, sweetly decorated, and comfortable. When we arrived it was chilly in the room (actually there are two rooms plus a bathroom) and I thought, "Oh dear, I'm going to freeze!" Rest assured the heaters kick in and we were quite comfy. Diana and Willie, the owners of the inn, are easy to be with and talk to, and the breakfasts were quite yummy. In addition, we knew we were going off quite early the first morning and I let Diana know ahead of time that we'd have to skip breakfast and she prepared a bag of fruit and muffins for us! I was charmed by that. At night my husband and I each enjoyed a glass of sherry before sleep, and sleep we did! The bed was nice, and there's just no noise to speak of outdoors so we weren't disturbed at all. The grounds are fun to investigate: there are lots of antique things around.The main house was decorated for Christmas and was just warm and festive. Thank you so much, Diana and Willie, for a lovely time. It was a perfect way to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary!

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B during our honeymoon in July 2012. The Country cottage is so wonderful and breakfast also! The inkeepers are very very friendly and we enjoyed so much to talk to them during and after breakfast. We won´t forget these 2 days at Meadow Creek Ranch and wished we could have stayed longer...
