I stayed at Homestead Cottages while visiting Yosemite. The cabin I stayed in was perfectly kept. The location was quite and restful. The whole facility was beautiful. The managers were very helpful and made good recommendations of places to eat and visit.

At first, we were a little hesitant to book this place as it's 1hr to 1.5hrs from Yosemite (depending on traffic in front of you) and we would need to drive back and forth each day for 3 days. However, as soon as we arrived, we were pleased with our choice. Check in was smooth and fuss-free, just needed to...

We stayed a few months back, but in view of the surprisingly positive reviews, I felt I need to add my opinion. The property changed hands late 2015 and it makes a big difference. The place is still very nice and quiet, with spacious and clean stand-alone cottages - which explains the appreciative recent reviews. However, at about 1-hour drive...

The cottages are really cute, clean and quiet. Very nicely decorated. Breakfast was delicious and the manager was really nice and helpful. They WIFi could have been much better and the TV could have been larger.

Our cottage was very cosy, clean and extremely well-maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped as well. Loved the peaceful and quiet environment and there's a little porch where you can sit to look at stars.

We stayed at the cottages in 2001 when the original owners were still adding to the property. We recently ran in the Bass Lake Smokey Bear run and was looking ro stay in a reasonable proximity to Bass Lake. Also, since we had not been to Yosemite in years we noted it to was a reasonable distance from the Cottages....

These cottages are off the beaten path. Super quiet. Very clean. The owners are very nice. Fresh basket of goodies every morning. The only thing that would make it perfect would be bigger TV's in the room. But that's just a minor thing. Highly recommend!

This is a great place to stay for Yosemite Park. It is close to the south entrance being about 21 miles. In all it will take just over 1 hour to get to Yosemite Valley or Glacier Point. You could stay in the park or some places closer but Cindy and Larry provide wonderful accommodation and will certainly look after...

We loved the location of Homestead Cottages. It's about 16 miles from the South entrance to Yosemite. The cottages are beautifully kept and well equipped with not only kitchen needs but luxurious bathrobes. The breakfast basket provided with granola, muffins and fruit and juice and milk was a tasty and lovely way to start the day. After a long day...

What a lovely place to get away & appreciate the beauty of the Sierras. Our cottage was warm & cozy with everything we could need. The spacious bathroom was a pleasant surprise. The hosts were welcoming & helpful - really nothing to complain about or anything they could improve on.
