We loved our stay at the cottage on the ranch. It was quiet, clean, comfortable and the hosts thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable!
Amazing tranquil setting that will make you forget whatever you were trying to :)
Of our many favorites were the bunnies hopping about everywhere, squirrels and the friendly horses and mules. The outdoor shower was also very refreshing, we didn't even use the inside one! Super comfortable bed and everything you need for a short or long stay.
Steve was a gracious host and gave us suggestions of where to go in Yosemite and it paid off in spades!
Definitely recommended, you won't be disappointed!
Thank you Stephen for the lovely cottage! We enjoyed every moment we were there. The cottage is immaculate, appointed beautifully and the outside is landscaped to perfection! We so enjoyed the hummingbirds and bunnies.
We were on a driving trip down the coast with a stop in Yosemite and this was our choice but we were not sure what to expect. Our hosts at Yosemite Horse Country Cottage/Roundhat Ranch, Steve and Gayle, have created a beautiful environment. We loved the ambiance and convenience of the home itself.
The cottage is nestled within the larger property and it is an outstanding experience for anyone who wishes to be close to nature and have a quiet respite from, or complement to, Yosemite National Park. It was so much fun watching the rabbits, hummingbirds, squirrels, and other wildlife. This stay is definitely the highlight of our entire vacation. This was so much better than staying in a hotel. We loved the large wall hangings, all the art and photographs, and beautiful touches throughout. The outside shower was a real hit for both of us (yes there is also one inside). The convenience of a real kitchen and fridge was so much appreciated. We had an outdoor BBQ each night.
We cannot say enough about this place: it is everything one could wish for in terms of warmth, comfort and convenience: truly superlative.
This is an excellent place to stay within easy driving distance of Yosemite. The cottage was so clean and Steve and Gayle have thought of everything that you might possibly need. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect before we made the trip from Tennessee since it was kind of a shot in the dark but the cottage far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend this to any couple looking for a clean, quiet place to stay. Thanks Steve and Gayle for making me look like a genius by choosing your wonderful cottage.
This review is a little different because at the last minute, my husband and I were unable to go due to our dog's illness. I thought my sister would love it, so we invited her to take our place. She spent three days and sent countless pictures and videos so that we would feel as if we were there too. She became acquainted with the horses and donkeys and various wildlife and didn't even want to leave the ranch. She met friends from college (coincidentally) while lunching at a nearby cafe. She described the nighttime sky and the incredible starry views. I'm looking forward to our own visit hopefully soon. I want to thank Stephen and Gayle for taking good care of my sister during her stay.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Roundhat ranch. The cottage was quiet and private. The horses were friendly. The water tasted as clear as mountain spring water. The cottage was perfect for two with lots of patio space and a gas grill.
Steve met us at the gate when we arrived and gave us great ideas on how to enjoy Yosemite and the local area.
