Should have checked all reviews here before thinking about staying at Big Creek Meadow Ranch. I looked at them, since they had something very close to Hwy 120 - meadows area where we were planning to be the next morning. I put in reservation information including my credit card and then saw that they have issues with late arrivals, so... More

Great location for the national parks, shame they were closed when we stayed. We enjoyed our stay every thing was clean, very friendly people. If you like the country side this is the place to be. We were 3 people to a room with plenty of space.

So glad to hear the Big Meadow Creek Ranch had not been touched by the recent Rim fire. Also, that the wonderful girls who help run the ranch are OK. They were so kind to us and recommended that we visit the local Rainbow pool. Our boys loved it and it became a highlight of our trip! Great tip girls!

Big Creek Meadow Ranch B&B We spent three nights at Big Creek Meadow Ranch, a working ranch that raises sheep, etc. We chose this place because it was reasonably priced and not too far from Yosemite National Park. Our arrival there was not auspicious because 1) we had to drive several miles back to Groveland to check in at a... More

I do not normally leave poor reviews, but in this case I feel like I have to. The short story: My fiance and I wanted to have our wedding here. Joy and Harold were great, very helpful and excited to host our wedding. Sadly, they no longer work for Big Creek Meadow Ranch. Ann- the owner- is awful. She "forgot"... More

We stayed for one night while visiting Yosemite. Joy and her husband made us feel right at home. Since we are animal lovers, we really enjoyed the farm. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the animals. It is inconvenient that you have to drive to Groveland which was 5 miles further than the ranch from Yosemite to check... More

Arrived at check-in to find a notice, 'Receptionist on break' and instructions to use phone on porch. This had a recorded message to leave a cell phone number and we would be contacted shortly. Unfortunately, there was no cell phone reception. Had to wait over 1/2 hour for the owners to turn up with apologies citing, 'out of range' telephone... More

We stayed for one night on our way to Yosemite. I adored the cozy-homey ranch. Joy and her husband were great hosts and I LOVED the five week old kittens. Not for the snooty, but a great country experience!

I am really glad to share with you the great experience we have had in this lovely ranch, surrounded by meadows and amazing views of Yosemite Park (an hour's drive away). We've been warmly welcomed by Joy and enjoyed so much her cosy, spacious, comfortable room and the quietness of the place. Each of the three rooms has its own... More

Be aware this is not a typical bed and breakfast. We arrived to check in and no one was there. There is no cell phone service, since it is in the middle of nowhere. After waiting for half an hour, we drove into town to their "sister" bed and breakfast to see if we could find anything out. They called... More
