About

Located 21 miles from Yosemite, The Homestead Cottages blend with the environment in rich adobe, stone and cedar. The interiors are modern and immaculate. Accented with antiques, each expresses a different theme with its unique fireplace, woodwork and decor. The grounds are restful, with the songs of birds and meandering rock walls. Choose between our one bedroom cottages, the smaller Star Gazing Loft, or our newest two bedroom Ranch House. All have kitchens stocked daily with coffees, teas, juice, milk, muffins, fruit and granola.

a lovely and romantic get-away place

5 on January 04, 2016

This is such a wonderful place! If you're going to Yosemite you must stay here. It's located about 20 minutes outside the south side entrance to the park so it's very convenient. The setting is super romantic! 6 cottages each was separated by 50 yards or so, super private, yet not far from the main roads. The cottage was super clean. Breakfast/coffee/tea/water were amply stocked and refilled, decorations were very pretty and tasteful. Free wifi, cable TV, and a nearby golf course keep you entertained. Each cottage has a full kitchen too if you want to make something simple. We went there with another family, we all, including the kids, loved the place! It's a great place for couples, a family or family gatherings. We will definitely come back again.


The Homestead

Fine


First visit here, but not our last!

Larry and Cindy have created a WONDERFUL 'home away from home' that is peaceful, quiet, and an absolute gem. Each cottage is separated by enough space that you don't feel crowded nor barely even notice the other guests at all. You really feel like you have the entire place to yourself. Small touches throughout make it apparent that a lot of thought and love went into this B&B. There is also a wonderful spot by the outdoor grill that is PERFECT for stargazing! (If they had a lounge-chair available, I might be stargazing still!!!) :) The drive into Yosemite is literally 3 turns, and that includes turing out of the driveway!! Left, right, then left again and you're at the South Entrance to Yosemite! (it does take 25 minutes or so to get there, but again, with all 3 turns in the first few miles, you can concentrate on the beauty around you and not worry about getting lost.) Larry and Cindy are kind, knowledgeable hosts. We highly recommend The Homestead. We'll be back time and time again!!!

Homestead Fantastic home away from home

We had a fantastic 3 nights at the Homestead, a fantastic pace to unwind after a day in the National Park, such a lovely cottage that you did not want to go out for dinner. We would encourage you to try out this for your next holiday in the Yosemite National Park.


Our home away from home

Everything was OK

4.0 on September 08, 2011

Every thing OK, something perfect. The Yosemite is croweded, too much touristic.... go for the alternative hike... they're really worth it. The girl at hoemstead was very friendily and kind. Dexter (the cat), was friendily, too!


Great place!

4.4 on September 07, 2011

Loved the Homestead! We stayed for 2 nights in the Star gazing loft which is just perfect for a romantic getaway. It had a kitchenette which I wasn't expecting which we used to cook dinner one night after being tired of eating out on our tour of CA. The Homestead is for those seeking a little bit of peace and to be away from the hustle and bustle of a town. Oakhurst is only a few mins drive away where you can get all the supplies you might need as well as restaurants and even a cinema so your not too isolated. Perfect retreat close to Yosemite, I hope to return some day!


4 night stay in the 'Ranch House'

4.6 on September 02, 2011

Everyone was very friendly and we did not want for anything! There was the finest attention to detail including stamped post cards! The location was extremely peaceful and picturesque... The owners & staff couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. We would highly recommend a stay at the Homestead.


Wonderful place to stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Homestead in the Native cabin for our honeymoon earlier this month. Larry and Cindy were very sweet and helpful, providing us with menus from local restaurants and a binder full of ideas on where to hike, visit, eat, etc. It was wonderful having the full kitchen and the large bathroom. We definitely plan on staying here again!
