I stayed here with my husband last month while on a road trip around California, it was my favourite place we stayed during the trip. The setting is picturesque and in a great location, only 15 minutes drive from Mariposa which has some nice restaurants and about an hours drive to Yosemite.
We stayed in the Garden Gate room which was in fact two rooms, one with a double bed and another with a twin. The decor was beautiful and had clearly been given a great deal of love and attention. There was a lovely freestanding bath and sweet touches like books, cards and a puzzle which were a lovely alternative to a television!
Willie and Diana were the perfect hosts, we had a great welcome, got introduced to the cats (who were delightful!) and were told to make the most of the grounds, which were beautiful. They were also very helpful in giving us advice on which was to go to Yosemite and the best areas to see, as well as recomending restaurants.
Breakfast was the highlight of our stay, everything was homemade, locally sourced and delicious (I am still thinking of the scones with walnuts...) and we were asked what time suited us to eat.
I have never written a review on here before, but the Meadow creek ranch was so lovely I had to! I would reccomend it to anyone.
