Our only disappointment was that we could stay only one night due to the way our trip was planned. The Homestead far exceeded our expectations. It is a great location, approx 40 mins from the South entrance of Yosemite in a beautifully quiet location. Oakhurst near by has many shops and restaurants that would suffice during a longer stay. We... More

I have nothing to add to all the glowing reviews below, except yes: this has been our experience also in the two nights we stayed at the Homestead. In any other place I've ever stayed in, at some point management attention sags, and keeping the place running becomes a chore. Somehow, Larry and Cindy seem to be able to maintain... More

Loved it from the minute we were personally greeted at the reception by Larry and Cindy who were exceptional hosts. Lovely people who are living the dream ! Terrific location, only a short drive to Yosemite. Oakhurst on your doorstep with plenty wonderful mom and pop places to eat. Having said that, once we had dined in "Crab Cakes" we... More

We loved it here. The cottages are so cosy inside, with fireplaces and great kitchens. Cindy & Larry (&dog) were so welcoming, and the muffins each day were some of the best we'd ever tasted (apple crumb was our favourite!) We'd already done several days inside Yosemite National Park itself, and so it was a great place to just unwind... More

We arrived late at night and Larry and Cindy were very understanding, giving us directions in case we got lost. When we arrived they showed us to our room (the stargazing loft) where they had loads of information that we could read and take with us about Yosemite. The room was brilliant, it had a kitchette, which we would have... More

We were on a roadtrip in the Western parts of USA and decided to stay at Homestead Cottages when visiting Yosemite based on the stellar reviews here on Tripadvisor. Based on that our expectations were quite high when arriving but it was even better than we expected! The owners, Cindy and Larry, and their dog and cat came and greeted... More

We decided to stay at the Homestead Cottages based on the stellar reviews in TripAdvisor. Usually there are a few unhappy people who write unflattering reviews, which we then take with a grain of salt, but I could not find one example which did not recommend the Homestead Cottages. Could they be this deserving? Yes. We made reservations for 3... More

There is simply no better place to stay when visiting Yosemite! After long days of adventuring in the parks among crowds of tourists, we would retreat to the quiet solitude of our cabin for a cup of tea by a warm, cozy fire. Every amenity we could possibly need was provided, along with a well organized book of instructions. Cindy... More

We don't typically stay at B&B's. The cottages at the homestead are better than most if only for the private bathrooms. We stayed in the loft it is spacious and a good value. It was nice after a day of hiking and fighting crowds to return to a secluded location with no one else to deal with and relax. thanks... More

The cabins at Homestead was a three day getaway from our three week roundtrip in the US. From having been to New York and Las Vegas, Homestead was just what we needed. Beautiful location, lovely and romantic cabin, and perfect service. With the cabins beeing isolated, it was the most quiet night i have ever spent. There was not a... More
