“Amazing get away! Unbelievable price!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed with Rich and Lynn Ferry at Kowana Valley Lodge and it is everything and more than they state on their website. We (8 close lady friends) stayed 3 nights and used the lodge to relax, catch up on family and friends, and to visit Yosemite Valley one day. The property is beautiful and the lodge is beautifully and comfortably furnished. Lynn cooked for us two nights and both dinners were amazing. Rich and Lynn take such good care of you. They are eager to make your stay worth the drive (the site is off-the-grid, but it only makes your stay more magical.)

“Absolutely amazing gem- not to be missed!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

So I pretty much never write reviews so bear with me here... but I just had to! Words cannot begin to describe what an absolutely beyond amazing gem of a place this is (I'm also probably not a good enough writer to even attempt to capture it, but here goes...). Initially the plan was to find a place close to an all day rafting trip we had planned for sunday so, coming up from the Bay, we figured we'd head into Yosemite saturday, pretty much just crash here, and be close for sunday-- what a huge mistake that would have been to just use it as a place to sleep! We got in past 2pm on saturday, so decided to forgo our Yosemite plans, and I'm so incredibly grateful we did! Even the better part of an afternoon and evening spent exploring the grounds and chatting with Lynn wasn't nearly enough! Lynn is absolutely fantastic- the absolute nicest, most attentive, and just all around sweet and down to earth and interesting host I've had the pleasure of staying with. Her clear passion seeps through in everything she does and speaks of (right down to her breakfast-- absolutely not to missed! she's an amazing cook/baker)-- and it's absolutely contagious. And the place! Her lovely lodge could not be more charming and the entire off-the-grid philosophy is so amazingly refreshing-- and impressive (and makes for a real vacation!) And the grounds! What history and beauty is right in her backyard from the watering holes you can take a nice dip in to a legitimately impressive multi-level cave you can explore-- it's truly an experience not to be missed. Not to mention, Lynn also offers weekend/week getaway classes etc- you'll have to check out her website. We know we just have to come back and attend one next time and definitely stay for longer! Please don't miss out on a chance to meet Lynn and visit her truly incredible gem of a place.
