We arrived in the beginning of November and stayed 3 nights in the Sierra Sky Ranch. Although we got lost finding it, apparently most GPS have a problem finding the hotel, we were welcomed warmly by the receptionist, who showed us around the historic hotel and told a bit about the history of the ranch. It has an amazing history! I couldn't believe how many fireplaces it has. The people working at the Ranch are very nice and welcoming and will help you with anything you need. They also like to just sit and chat with you whenever you want!
We got a nice room with a huge bathroom. All rooms have access to a nice porch. Breakfast was one of the best we got so far with fresh orange juice, waffles, boiled eggs, toast, little muffins and more. The four cats who walked around (protecting the ranch from rodents/mice) were well taken care of and nice company in the early morning on the porch. Very nice that the hotel did not smell like cats! It is a quiet place where you can relax after a rough day in Yosemite NP! You'll definitely feel at home in the large living room with a beautiful fire place or in the garden, where you can see the stars at night and the deer during the day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sierra Sky Ranch is just 10 miles from Yosemite's southern entrance. Established in 1875, it was the first working cattle ranch in the area; in 1946 it was converted to a guest facility. Visitors come from all over the world for its simple, laid back atmosphere, and to taste the savory delights of the on-site steakhouse & saloon – The Branding Iron. Rustic yet comfortable, this 100-year-old converted mountain ranch house is the perfect family getaway. ... more less
