“We LOVE the Lyn-Mar Pond Ranch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2010

A couple times a year we drive from Los Angeles to go here and we have introduced lots of friends and family to this wonderful place. One of the huge benefits is that we can bring our high energy dog, who has to tollerate living in a one bedroom city apartment most of the year and he can run free. The land is private and extensive so we never worry about where he is - he just gets to explore and be a free dog. Plus, we know that Snert, the resident pup will make sure he doesn't get into anything he shouldn't!

The house is wonderful, so comfortable and inviting. Filled with vintage knick-knacks, it has charm and feels homey in a way that no hotel can match. Sunsets, long walks in every direction, starry nights, fires in the fireplace, comfy beds, clawfoot bathtub, cooking in the great kitchen, this place has too many positives to list. Mark, the owner is always available to answer any questions and we love to see him every time we go. He responds quickly to emails and is the friendliest, kindest host you could ask for.

I cannot reccomend this fabulous guest house highly enough. I prefer the winter months because sitting around the fire is so enjoyable. I've gone in the summer but it was too hot and dry for my taste. Bring friends and family and plan on a relaxing vacation you'll want to revisit again and again.

I do not live to far from the guest ranch. I have always wanted to take my kids to stay. The pond sold me. The kids brought their poles and had a blast. The house is very relaxing. It is stress free. The outdoors was very wonderful. It reminded me of playing in the country as a child. We are planning a return trip, but will bring more family memebers to enjoy this place as we did.

Me, my wife and five other very good friends from England, holidaying in California for the first time were treated to the most idyllic stay that we could have wished for. As keen birdwatchers and having a love for natural history in general then Lyn-Mar Pond Guest Ranch fitted our requirements perfectly. This beautiful ranch is set in the most picturesque and peaceful setting and abounds with a great variety of wildlife. Add to this the very warm welcome and care that was bestowed upon us by the owner, then this little piece of heaven will stay in our memories for ever. If your wishes and needs are similar to ours then staying at this place is a must. Jim.

Well, Just came back from the Lyn Mar Pond Guest Ranch where I we had a family reunion that involved 10 people and 1 dog. We had a really lovely stay. We ate every meal outside under the trees and hung out under the stars on the porch in the eves. the house is comfortable, lovely, and well decorated. The beds are comfy too. Please note that there is not too much around there. It is a 25 minute drive to bass lake, and a 40 minute ride to the south gate of yosemite, however, is peace and quiet is what you are looking for, this is your place. Great memories to last a lifetime where made and we won't ever forget our stay. Mark is a fantastic host and Snert pretty is a pretty great guy too.

We found the house to be an absolute gem, everything provided to ensure that our stay was memorable. Set in peaceful surroundings, a perfect quiet haven to rest and relax. Our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer. If you are looking for something completely different we would certainly recommend this unique property.

Along with our kids and dogs, we celebrated our 20th anniversary at Lynmar ranch and it was great. What a great suite and Mark is a really cool guy. Its also, within 5 minutes of the "Center of California". and near some cool towns: Sea Bass and other nice towns with good resturants.

Great place to stay. amazing view of the mountain from the backyard. Cozy decorating with antiques.

well equipped kitchen and have a firepit outside for camp fire.

very relaxing. went jogging around the ranch and snert (the ranch dog) kept me company. --smart and fun.

Nice crawfoot bath tub for soaking baby. very family friendly place to stay.

  • Liked — Amazing and relaxing view. Nicely decorated
  • Disliked — Far from Yosemite entrance (30 minutes but seem like forever)
