We stayed here for a night. Firstly, the check-in place and the ranch was 7 miles away. The room we stayed in was called "spruce" and was totally not clean. Bedsheets and comforters had hair in it, towels had musty smell and hairs. The place was full of cats (atleast 7-8) and even the rooms smell like cats! It is...

My fiance and I stayed here for 5 days while we were visiting Yosemite National Park in honor of our 5th anniversary. The staff were super friendly and helpful! We were arriving fairly late at night and planning to get up early the next morning to climb Half Dome, so they had two boxed breakfasts ready for us to take...

This is a beautiful lodge in a very quiet location. It's surrounded by a working farm with cows, geese etc outside the back of the ranch. It's a lovely quiet place, perfect to relax in after a busy day in Yosemite. It's also pretty close to Groveland which has some good restaurants. There is no breakfast in the lodge. So...

We stayed here as part of our 3-weeks trip in the US. This was by far the worst experience we had. We had, like everybody else, to travel between the ranch and Groveland for about everything. Although when booking it says that check-in is possible until 22:00, we had to rush from Groveland to the ranch at around 18:00, or...

Comfortable, quiet, open space setting. Traveling alone, I wanted a cozy safe place to stay. Manager and staff at Big Creek Meadow Ranch did everything they could to make me fell welcome and cared for.

The location is lovely, I enjoyed watching the moon come up over the mountains from the veranda at the back, while cuddly the farm cats who were reasonably friendly. House and room were clean and well kept, in a pleasant 'homely' style. The breakfast was nice and included cooked burger, ham and eggs, as well as fruit and toast or...

Should have checked all reviews here before thinking about staying at Big Creek Meadow Ranch. I looked at them, since they had something very close to Hwy 120 - meadows area where we were planning to be the next morning. I put in reservation information including my credit card and then saw that they have issues with late arrivals, so...

Great location for the national parks, shame they were closed when we stayed. We enjoyed our stay every thing was clean, very friendly people. If you like the country side this is the place to be. We were 3 people to a room with plenty of space.

So glad to hear the Big Meadow Creek Ranch had not been touched by the recent Rim fire. Also, that the wonderful girls who help run the ranch are OK. They were so kind to us and recommended that we visit the local Rainbow pool. Our boys loved it and it became a highlight of our trip! Great tip girls!

Big Creek Meadow Ranch B&B We spent three nights at Big Creek Meadow Ranch, a working ranch that raises sheep, etc. We chose this place because it was reasonably priced and not too far from Yosemite National Park. Our arrival there was not auspicious because 1) we had to drive several miles back to Groveland to check in at a...

“Every room has a different style but the beds were so comfortable. We had been camping in Yosemite for several days and it was a nice break from camping. The breakfast prepared for us by Sidney and Sarah was delicious and they were such nice company. They made a recommendation that we stop at a local swimming hole Rainbow Pool and it was one of the highlights of our trip. I was sad to learn that the swimming hole was affected by the recent rim fire, but glad to hear that the Ranch was not touched by fire.”
