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.

Relaxing Retreat

4.2 on June 17, 2016

We stayed three nights in the Ranch House and used it for our base during our visits to Yosemite and the surrounding area. The house was very clean and well-kept, with all the necessities for your stay. We cooked several meals in the kitchen and found it well supplied. This property is located back off the main streets and is very private and quiet. The only sounds you hear are birds singing and an occasional "moo" from a cow! It was a very relaxing place. The breakfasts were convenient to carry with you, if you wanted to make an early departure to get into Yosemite.


A very quiet, nice and "all nature" place to stay

4.0 on June 17, 2016

The only that did not make it perfect was the distance ti the good entrance os Yosemite


Perfect stay

Our stay in the Garden Cottage was perfect. Laura and Walter were very welcoming. We loved the huge tub, warm gas fire place, and fresh squeezed orange juice. There were also plenty of towels and everything you could need in the kitchen. It was also a convenient location for entering the park through the 41 Highway, and also for having a bit of a head start back down to Southern California for the ride home. I would definitely stay at the Homestead Cottages again and would recommend the place to friends and family.


Beautiful place, great little cottages with full kitchens

4.8 on May 29, 2016

Incredibly beautiful 40+ acre property with trails. The cottages are cute, with all amenities including a full kitchen. The owners provide muffins, milk and fruit everyday as a plus. 45 min drive from Yosemite's southern entrace and the town of oakhurst has a bunch of food places too. All in all a great place to stay in the yosemite area


Our favorite place to stay when visiting Yosemite

3.8 on May 23, 2016

Homestead Cottages is a small group of cottages that include a bedroom, bathroom (some with soaker tubs), living room, a well stocked kitchenette, & small dining room. The location is on a quite country road about 10 minutes from Oakhurst. Each day granola, muffins, fruit, milk, & orange juice are provided and because the kitchen is stocked with all that is needed to customize your meals, breakfast can be what you wish. Chairs are provided outside your room so you can sit outside and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of your favorite beverage and enjoy the beautiful surroundings or gaze at the stars at night. All in all, a very pleasant place to stay.


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

4.8 on September 22, 2011

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.
