We booked Homestead cottages and wanted to use it as a basis to explore Yosemite NP and then we ended up in the middle of the government shutdown! We hesitated if it was still worth going there and oh, we were so happy that we did! We couldnt have had better hosts than Cindy and Larry who did an outstanding... More

Stop number three on our honeymoon - neat but plenty spacious cabins near the town of Oakhurst to the Southwest of Yosemite. Tv with loads of channels, fridge, cooking facilities, a good Vons supermarket less than 10 minutes drive away. What more do you need? Around 30-40 minutes drive to the South Gate of Yosemite which is just an amazing... More

The cottages are charming and well equipped. The people running the cottages are friendly and helpful and have clearly put their heart and soul into building each cottage. The cottages are a tribute to their care and love of their environment and their desire to create a nice homely place to stay. Our cottage even had its own resident woodpecker... More

Quite a drive from the main road, so keep going if you think you're lost. The cottages have a shared BBQ and great kitchen and in reality, you are a long way from anywhere, so I recommend buying some steak and salad en route. Really cosy cottage with fireplace, full kitchen, power shower and comfortable bed. It is the quietest... More

We stayed here whilst visiting Yosemite. Handy for the South Gate after a 20 minute drive, then 20 minutes further into the park. We stayed in the loft room which was roomy and had a kitchen area. This was handy as the restaurants nearby were ok but we preferred to call at the supermarket and get something to eat when... More

My husband and I toured around California on honeymoon this September, and chose Homestead Cottages as our base for Yosemite. We had read great things and felt confident this would be better than staying inside the park. We we delighted that this was absolutely right. Larry and Cindy have very lovingly built a charming, comfortable and beautiful place to stay.... More

We had a 4-night stay at Homestead Cottages and loved every moment of it. Larry and Cindy gave us a warm and genuine welcome, which included all the information we needed. “Our” cottage (Garden Cottage) was extremely well equipped and very clean and very comfortable. The facilities make it very easy to eat in the cottage but if you prefer... More

Well, what can i say that hasn't already been said in other reviews which by the way were very good and the reason i booked in the first place.

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... More
