Looking forward to having a base close to Yosemite National Park with some room to relax after sharing hotel rooms in NYC and San Fran. I must admit it was a bit disappointing to arrive at the ranch house initially. The electricity seemed antiquated, with a standard lamp in the upstairs bathroom. Broken shower downstairs. The furnishings seemed a bit tired and worn. The kitchen was basic but original. Don't leave anything out on the counters as ants will prevail. Our boys could have had their own rooms here but the youngest stayed with us as he felt strange in one of the separate bedrooms. The beds in the master were large and very comfortable with lovely fresh bedding. There is a washing machine to use but its in a kind of out house that was swamped with flies. This definitely seemed to be a party house and could really use some work. I appreciated the cleaner has been scrubbing the kitchen floor prior to our arrival. As we were only a small party of four we were told that we could go to the B+B for breakfast and what a treat it was. The house itself is stunning and clearly has a lot of history. Scelestia and her husband were very welcoming and the breakfast both mornings was just lovely. Location was great and just short drive to the town and Yosemite, which was amazing. A lovely touch were the fresh baked cookies and treats each morning which we were welcome to take. If there is availability, stay at the b+b. The space at the Ranch House is good but it needs more work, a lick of paint and new carpet, perhaps? nonetheless, the location was great, views were amazing and breakfast at the b+b was special. I guess we got used the ranch house after a couple of nights and after chatting with Scelestia before we left we got a better feel for the place. The boys had a game of pool before we left and we were able to learn a little more about the house and its history.
