If you want to feel you are home with delicious breakfasts this is the place. An easy drive to the park but away from the hustle. The location really gives you the feeling of being in the country with a wonderful setting.

With very comfortable accommodation and the nicest of hosts we were able to recharge ur batteries and...

This place is truly paradise. From the cozy room, the yummie home made breakfast by the host to the jaccuzzi under the stars... everything is just perfect. Waking up in this beautiful spacious ranch boosts your happiness level for the rest of the day!

This was by far the highlight of our 2 week tour of California, from the warm welcome by Deborah, along with the 3 dogs, watching the humming birds feeding and sitting in the hot tub gazing at the stars. Deborah knew all the local sites to visit and we went to several good restaurants in Groveland and Rick was also...

Besides repeating other reviews that how wonderful Deborah and Kevin have made this place, I would like to add two points. Their three lovely dogs were our tour guide while we took a trial around the ranch: Barkley was like a gentleman who would wait for us ahead, the other two girls sometimes played in the woods and then came...

Had our best 2 nights stay here. Kevin and Deborah ( and the dogs) couldn't have been more inviting and informative about Yosemite Nationsl Park. The house and bedrooms were exceptionally comfortable, Kevin cut the logs and lit the outside fires so we could sit around and watch the sunset. We loved the outside hot tub when the evenings were...

A real gem of a place. Deborah was so welcoming and basically turned over her home to us during our stay. First time in a hot tub - under the stars. Breakfast was outstanding. The hummingbirds are magical and the dogs very friendly.
