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

We had definitely good time in the Cottages with families and friends. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen has everything you would need at home. They brought breakfast everyday with many choices. Even though, you won't want to watch TV there, but they have TV with many channels, and free Wi-Fi access to make you... More

We took a vacation with another family arriving at this cottage in the President Day weekend! Even this was a last minute reservation, we still got lucky to get a cozy and quiet two bedroom cottage with an attractive rate. The spacious room was probably recently upgraded with everything new and clean. Two families had each own bathrooms and kids... More

We reserved the Adobe for us and our two children ages 4 and 3 during the MLK weekend. The cottage had everything we needed. Laura and Walter were so nice, it seemed almost too good to be true. Our kids loved exploring around the area, lots of green grass and trees to play. The views were nice, and across the... More

This is such a wonderful place! If you're going to Yosemite you must stay here. It's located about 20 minutes outside the south side entrance to the park so it's very convenient. The setting is super romantic! 6 cottages each was separated by 50 yards or so, super private, yet not far from the main roads. The cottage was super... More

We absolutely loved this beautiful place after we stayed at one of the cabins for a few days after Christmas. Laura and Walter were very nice and they kept the house clean and fully stocked breakfast everyday. This place is also in proximity of many shops, golf courses and national park like Yosemite, therefore provides enough activities for a family... More
