“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stayed in this little B&B in April 2013 and absolutely loved the hospitality that our hosts Diana and Willie showed to us. The room we chose - the Garden Gate - was clean, very comfortable and beautifully arranged. Diana and Willie, our hosts, provided us with a heart warming hospitality that made us feel as if we were not strangers, but friends. Breakfast was plenty and delicious. We will definitely come back to this place for our next trip to Yosemite.

After an awesome breakfast of coffee, juice, fruit and blue-berry-walnut pancakes, we took a walk around the property on a mowed trail. It was a refreshing walk near a creek with plenty of trees and flowers. It was an hour drive to the Yosemite trail we wanted to hike and when we got back, we had a wonderful bed to greet us!

We stayed in the "Garden Gate" room, which has wi-fi. We wanted to stay away from the normal social networking stuff, but it was still useful when looking for trails to hike at Yosemite.

Room Tip: Choose the coop if you want to truly escape from the outside world. Make sure to leave your cellphon...

Our family stayed at the Meadow Creek Ranch Bed and Breakfast Inn as part of a California Spring break trip. The two rooms were a perfect set up for our family, as our 3 teenagers stayed in the Garden Gate room, and my husband and I had the pleasure of privacy in the Country Cottage, a minute's walk away. We were treated as friends, and it was a pleasure to get to know the innkeepers a little better. The inn was a beautiful 30 minute drive to Yosemite, and we left each day having been treated to a delicious and filling breakfast. I would highly recommend!

We are just home from a three night stay at this wonderful B&B. I would highly recommend it, and would love to return.

There are only two rooms to choose from: it's a small place. This fits us well, as we don't need a crowd to have a great time. The location is picturesque, and the room we had (Garden Gate) was clean, a good size, sweetly decorated, and comfortable. When we arrived it was chilly in the room (actually there are two rooms plus a bathroom) and I thought, "Oh dear, I'm going to freeze!" Rest assured the heaters kick in and we were quite comfy.

Diana and Willie, the owners of the inn, are easy to be with and talk to, and the breakfasts were quite yummy. In addition, we knew we were going off quite early the first morning and I let Diana know ahead of time that we'd have to skip breakfast and she prepared a bag of fruit and muffins for us! I was charmed by that.

At night my husband and I each enjoyed a glass of sherry before sleep, and sleep we did! The bed was nice, and there's just no noise to speak of outdoors so we weren't disturbed at all.

The grounds are fun to investigate: there are lots of antique things around.The main house was decorated for Christmas and was just warm and festive.

Thank you so much, Diana and Willie, for a lovely time. It was a perfect way to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary!

Room Tip: If you want wifi choose the Garden Gate. If not, I'm sure either room is lovely!

We spent two nights at Meadow Creek Ranch on a recent trip to Yosemite and were very pleased with our choice of B&B. It had an interesting historic past, was exceptionally clean, and the breakfasts were "just right.". We especially enjoyed conversing with our host, and probably spent an hour discussing Germany, notably our having lived there and their frequent trips. We'd highly recommend to anyone staying there. One note: do a Google map and understand the distances you're dealing with from both the southern and western Yosemite gates no matter where you stay. Note it had no pool nor fitness center--but I could not clear the rating on these two items once I touched a button.

We are so happy to have found the Meadow Creek Ranch Bed & Breakfast for our Yosemite visit. We stayed two nights and thought it was just perfect. I loved the comfy cottage decor of our Garden Gate room and since it was quite warm when we were there, appreciated the A/C unit in the room. The bed was really cozy and we enjoyed looking through some of the books provided; also there were nice touches such as fresh-ground coffee for the room, tea and even sherry. Thanks to Willie and Diana for a great stay and for our yummy breakfasts--served with the best, freshest coffee! We also appreciated the "insider" places Willie told us to look for in Yosemite.

Room Tip: The B&B is a bit of a drive from the town of Mariposa, but it's very scenic.

I stayed two nights at the Meadow Creek Ranch B&B and enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was very good, and the hosts (Willie and Diana) are welcoming and informative. The Inn is about 10-15 min from the main commercial district of Mariposa (where one should dine at Savoury's). Their location is advantageous if one is planning a visit to both the (western) Arch Rock and (southern) Wawona entrances of Yosemite, as it is approximately halfway (approximately 45 min or so) between the two entrances....this worked out well for me, since my itinerary took me to these entrances on two consecutive days. The option of having breakfast at 7:30 am is very helpful, as it allowed me to drive to the park early enough and avoid the lines at the entrance stations. If you are planning on staying in the Mariposa area, I recommend the Meadow Creek Ranch B&B.
