We stayed for two nights and wish it had been longer. From the first second we walked into the room it felt like a real home after two weeks of hotel rooms. Larry & Cindy are the ultimate hosts, they seem to make it their aim to ensure all the guests have a great stay. They even drove out to...

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst travelling around California and although it is just outside Yosemite it is definitely worth staying here rather than some over-priced, over-busy hotel in the park. We stayed in the star-gazing loft and though we didn't see too many stars due to the smoke from the fires, it was still perfect. We were greeted...

This is the most improbable setting imaginable, 4 miles outside the nearest small town, but easy drive to Sequoyia and Yosemite National Parks, immaculately presented housing and grounds, free ranging cattle nearby, no grass, but zen like stone raking (maybe the dreaded rattlesnakes). Very comfortable bedding, about 3 feet up, hand crafted by the owners throughout. Beautiful and well matched...

We were scheduled to visit the Homestead for three days in late August, coinciding with the Yosemite fire. Although the area the Homestead in was not affected by the fire, we were scheduled to fly info Reno, spend time in Tahoe, and then go on to Yosemite. We had to cancel our trip due to my asthma, the ash and...

A very comfortable and relaxing place to rest after full days exploring Yosemite! At check-in, Larry was more than accommodating with lots of helpful information about the park as well as the local area. We loved the cottage for its privacy and it felt much more homely than a hotel would have done. You can tell that with years of...

Even though we had to drive 20 miles outside of Yosemite to get to the Homestead Cottages, we wouldn't have changed our plans for anything. We loved the cottage that we stayed in. It was so relaxing after a strenuous day of hiking and sightseeing at Yosemite. We were very pleased with how clean the cottage was throughout our stay....

Fully serviced cottage on a small road to nowhere in particular. On beautiful private ranch rich in birds and animals and with private parking outside the cottage. We were using it as a 3 night stopover to visit Yosemite and it definitely works but remember that it is over 40 very slow miles to the NP whichever way you go...

My husband and I stayed two nights in one of the cottages a couple weeks ago while visiting Yosemite. Our charming little cottage had everything you can think of...so much attention to detail, especially the orange juice, milk, muffins, granola, and fruit they provided. I mean, seriously, who does that kind of thing?! Talk about making you feel special! The...

I just stayed in one of the Homestead Cottages with my daughters. It is a wonderful property and Cindy and Larry who own and run the cottages were wonderful. It was very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the use of the barbeque each evening to cook our dinner and we spent the days in Yosemite. We highly recommend this location...

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I chose Homestead Cottages for our trip to Yosemite and was not disappointed. Homestead Cottages are located about 30 minutes from the south gate of Yosemite, and an easy drive out to the park. Visiting Yosemite you end up driving a lot to get to hiking trails and points of interest, so really,...
