my husband and i stayed in the Stargazer loft and used the location as a base for hiking in Yosemite. whilst you will be about an hour's drive from the national park, the location is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle. one can truly unwind and enjoy the tranquillity offered by the cottages, which are clean and cosy...

These cottages are very nice. We actually got upgraded to a two bedroom, two bath cottage without asking. Would be very romantic as is very isolated but I was there with my son. About 40 minutes or so from the South Gate of Yosemite. Five minutes from a good sized town of Oakhurst. Definitely off the beaten track but sky... More

Folks, where do i start. From the time i booked my reservation & my entire stay was a life long great experience. Its worth the effort. Especially that I'm a city boy from Chicago, it gave me the Camping feeling, a home & knowing its always property management onsite was very good

A short drive to Yosemite, but away from the hectic tourist areas. Small, quiet cabins out in the woods (watch for the open range cows when driving). Clean, nicely furnished, full kitchen, comfortable bed. The inneepers were friendly, willing to offer suggestions for things do to (thanks for Nelder Grove), and where to eat. I can't recommend it enough.

Very clean cabins that felt new. Quiet surroundings fairly close to Yosemite and other places. I liked that it was in the middle of nowhere. Wifi was a little iffy but overall I liked our stay. Enjoyed the breakfast being in my own cabin was able to eat on my schedule.

We enjoyed the peaceful, quiet atmosphere. It was great to stay in such a serene place after hiking in Yosemite all day. It was close enough to several great little restaurants plus the cottage kitchen made it easy to pack lunches. The continental breakfast was fresh and delicious. The orange juice was yummy!

We were fortunate enough to be able to get a room at Homestead Cottages this past weekend. Even though we were only able to stay a couple of nights we thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated the hospitality shown to us by Laura and Walter. So nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Houston and experience the peacefulness... More

There aren't a lot of places to stay close to Yosemite (at least that we could find when we searched on line), and Homestead has charm that chain properties lack. It's located 2 1/2 miles off CA-49, and the bigger town of Oakhurst is about 5 miles away. Our "Native American" cottage theme was rustic and lovely. The cottage has... More

We stayed at the homestead in October 2015 and this is just the most amazing accommodation. Its relaxed, laid back, chilled out, awesome place to stay. The surrounding countryside is stark but this is a cool oasis in a baked landscape. We used this as our base camp for Yosemite and our ascent of half dome. Cindy and Larry the... More

We just returned from staying at the Homestead Cottages. Super nice , relaxing and comfortable. The managers are lovely people, helpful, present but not in any way overbearing. We stayed in the Starlight loft. It was perfect for my husband and I. Perfect for two basically. We had everything we needed. We were in town for a wedding, which was... More
