“Great stay at quiet place”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had a great and quiet stay at the Meadow Creek Ranch. The place is situated in the middle of the woods and birds will wake you up in the morning. Willie and Diana are wonderful hosts with profound knowledge of the area which helped us a lot planning our trip to the Yosemite. We loved the morning chats at breakfast and felt at home.

We're sorry to not respond sooner during our high tourist season, and so glad that our morning chats were as helpful to you as they were enjoyable to us.

It was a treat to stay here for two nights while exploring Yosemite National Park. The owners are "salt of the earth" people and the breakfasts good, healthy and hearty. Our room was clean and pretty with a comfortable bed. Would definitely stay here again.

What a wonderful find this was. Diana and Willie are friendly, knowledgeable, interesting, and engaging hosts, who also happen to cook very well. Just remembering breakfast makes me want to eat waffle. The inn is located on spacious, quiet grounds in the country. I stayed in the Chicken Coop, a nice little house to myself, and since I have only a shower at my home, having the nice long claw foot bathtub, especially after hours of driving and hiking around Yosemite, was a luxury. I always stay at B&Bs when traveling, but this is the only one I've been to, or have seen in web searches, that offers a discount for single occupancy, and discounts for multiple nights. While two of their handsome felines are shown on their website, there was a surprise bonus of two more felines, which works very well for we cat lovers. Enjoy watching the cats' periscope tails moving through the flowers and grasses when they aren't actively lounging in the yard. It was my one life time trip to Yosemite, and Meadow Creek was the perfect complement to the experience.

Thanks for the wonderful, & wonderfully written review-it never occurred to me that our discount for singles was unique, or that relax & cats rhyme! It was great to have you here with us for a week so we could get to know you. And it means a lot to us to know that your stay at Meadow Creek Ranch was so special for you. Take care

This was our first time at a B&B and it was fantastic! Willie & Diana (the propietors) were incredibly friendly and hospitable. By the time we left we felt more like friends. Also amongst our welcoming committee were Mae, Scat, Tori, and Gaston...the cats--they too were amazing to be around, very friendly and fun to watch them around the property. This is an idyllic period property, stage stop from 1858. There are only two guest rooms, the Garden Gate and the Chicken Coop. We stayed in the Garden Gate. The room actually had three parts, the main bedroom, a secondary bedroom with a daybed, and a bathroom with claw foot tub. The room included other antique styled furniture, quaint, comfortable, and nicely appointed. Our room even included a small gated patio out front with a table and chairs and a small bench. It was private and perfect. My wife has said that she had the best nights sleep on the raised queen bed. The grounds are rustic, including two barns or outbuildings with wooded area and wild flowers. We will definitely stay here on a return trip.

Room Tip: You will have WiFi with the Garden Gate, but not with the Chicken Coop.

What an amazing place this is. I could have stayed for ever in the Chicken Coop, our lovely room for 3 nights at this one of a kind bed and breakfast. Willie and Diana are fantastic hosts and so friendly and full of knowledge of the local area. We went in Yosemite on 2 days and did some lovely hikes there but to return to this haven was an absolute delight every evening. Our room was so quaint and comfortable. Above all it was so peaceful after the busy park. The breakfasts were amazing, fresh fruit every morning, freshly ground coffee sourced locally and wonderful hot breakfasts ( different every day) Willie and Diana make you feel like friends during your stay. A lovely house full of history and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Meadow Creek Ranc h to anyone visiting this area.

Room Tip: The Chicken Coop is fantastic and set away from the main house

We stayed in the Garden Gate suite, which was spacious and extremely quiet. We struggled a little without a TV only because it was playoff season. The innkeepers, Diana and Willie were extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area, and make some mouthwatering french toast. The inn is about a 10 minute drive to downtown Mariposa, which is a quaint little town with good restaurants. The 50 minute drive to Yosemite was a little too long for our liking since that was the main purpose of our visit.

We're so glad that you think we are are wonderful innkeepers! It is also good for others who read reviews to be reminded that we don't have TV at our B&B if that is important to them. We felt that satellite TV didn't go with our historic B&B experience, and we do have free wireless internet. You are right that visiting Yosemite includes a lot of driving and there is closer lodging to the Park that people can choose. That is why we make the driving time clear on our website so our guests will know what to expect. The good thing about our location is being the same distance to both the HWY 140 entrance and the HWY 41 entrance for guests who are coming or going from different directions, and to be able to go in one entrance & out the other. It is also a beautifully scenic drive anywhere in Mariposa!

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.
