We are so sorry it took so long to write this review, but we LOVE LOVE LOVED Deb and Kevin and their incredible home! We stayed with them in October 2015 at the very beginning of our honeymoon. We arrived and were greeted by Deb and the pups (who we also loved). We were lucky enough to be the only...

You will visit Yosemite for the scenery and Red Tail Ranch will not disappoint on that front. It is however the hosts and the people in the area who make it so special. The lodge, food and setting are faultless. Deborah and Kevin are both charming and actually went out of their way to aid our hiking exploits. I think...

Red Tail Ranch is a great place to stay with spectacular views. Deborah and Kevin (and Rick!!!) are excellent hosts who did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Deborah's cooking and hospitality is wonderful, while Kevin & Rick's local knowledge is second-to-none.

My wife and I had a wonderful time here. Debra and Kevin are the most welcoming hosts. The were both very friendly and helpful with tips on where to go and what to see. It felt as if we had known them for years. We cannot recommend it highly enough. Perfect.

Had a great time in this ranch home. Beautiful meadow right outside, with lots of birds visiting. Deborah and Kevin are lovely and take time to suggest sights in Yosemite and local restaurant options. Home is in excellent condition.

My husband and I recently had a relaxing two night stay at Red Tail Ranch. The location was excellent!!! Nice and close to Yosemite. Our room was clean, comfortable and welcoming. Our hosts left freshly baked cookies in our room and cooked us a hearty breakfast each morning. We highly recommend Red Tail Ranch!

Wow what property. We had 2 nights here and our biggest regret is we never had longer. We had an amazing time on this wonderful ranch. I would go back again, it was so special. The hosts were super super friendly, very helpful, even making me up an ice pack for my back on my journey. The dogs are the...

My family and I- daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter- really fell in love with Red Tail Ranch. Ideally situated for exploring the local area, we found the peace of the place so alluring, we curtailed the sight-seeing in order to spend more of our two days there!! Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, including lighting a campfire to make...

We stayed here in July as part of our Californian Road trip for my (big) 4th July birthday. As we drove up the drive, having followed Deborah's excellent email instructions, my husband thought he'd died and gone to heaven! What a fabulous place. Set in a meadow, the sun was shining and there was a note by the door welcoming...
