We stayed here just for one night in the Garden Gate room. It was a last minute trip to Yosemite & we wanted to reach there a day before so we could start our hike early morning. Luckily Meadow Creek had a room available just for that one night.
We reached kinda late but Willie was waiting for us to show us to our room. He told us about some good restaurants that would be open for dinner close by. The room itself was spacious and well decorated, the bathroom was nice and clean & the bed was high up but very comfortable. The Garden room is independent from the main house so it's quite private.

The best part of the stay was the breakfast! It was served in the dining room of their main house. Both Diana & Willie were up early preparing breakfast for us. They made Spanish style eggs, fresh fruits, hot muffins & coffee - it was yummy and at the same time very personal and homely. They chatted with us while we ate & gave us tips/info on what to visit in Yosemite.

The only thing to remember is that this place is still an hour away from the park entrance so you have to leave early if you want to reach before the sun gets too hot & the place gets too crowded.

Overall, it was a great experience & we'll definitely come back for a longer stay next time!

We stayed here in the Garden Gate for four nights during our recent tour of the Sierras.
Diana and Willie have a lovely historic home which is beautifully decorated with period furniture. The room was lovely with an ornate bed which was quite an adventure to get into as it is very high up off the floor! Breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. Our hosts were very helpful recommending places to visit and to eat in nearby Mariposa.
The ranch is in a lovely spot in the middle of extensive gardens but it is about an hour's drive to either the South or Arch Rock entrances then up to a further 40 minutes drive to the valley which makes for quite a long day.

We stayed there for our 30th wedding anniversary weekend and it was the perfect spot. We wanted a quiet, relaxing place and it was exactly that. We enjoyed getting to know Mariposa more. We stayed in the chicken coop, tucked away and cozy. Our hosts were so pleasant and the food was delicious.

Our two night stay at Meadow Creek Ranch was very enjoyable. The room was comfortable, warm, and pleasant to look at (decorated very nicely). Diana and Willie were very informative and helpful - they recommended nearby restaurants, attractions, and even checked weather and road conditions before we headed out! Their attention to detail was superb, they accommodated our dietary needs and breakfast time was flexible. Overall this was an excellent B&B with a rich history, great location, and welcoming hosts.

Very nice farm with a lot of detail-furniture, kept, as they were originally there since the 19th century and the goldrush.

As we were travelling from Yosemite, our TomTom - navigation system lead us through the big forest and not through Mariposa and the bigger road. But at least we found it. Diana and Willie, he is a Sportscar-Fan!, were wonderful hosts, giving a lot of information about the ranch and the goldrush-times. They made us a great breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights in the Garden Gate room which was extremely comfortable and nicely furnished. It was a very peaceful setting and we slept well. Our hosts Diana and Willie were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We had a delicious breakfast each morning served in their attractive dining room which made a great start to the day. This is an ideal location for access to Yosemite and the shops and restaurants in the nearby town of Mariposa.
