WE stayed in the Katherine room for 2 nights. This was a pleasant stay. The place was clean, the toiletries were nice and the bed was comfortable. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast... Amazingly delicious and served by a friendly and gracious couple ( not the owners).. We enjoyed looking at the starry sky at night.. COuld not get wifi to work.. There was a computer available in a little room....however that was shutting down and just took too long shutting down that I gave up trying to wait for it to finish so I could try to reboot it.. No great problem for us, however, thought I'd mention it in case that is important to people. The other thing to note is that our room had no stand up shower. There is a jacuzzi, which we took turns sitting in and using the hand held device to "shower"...

This is a lovely house with well furnished rooms and great beds. The house contains a lot of family memorabilia and the owner gives a nice tour of the place when you arrive. Tea and cookies were available when we got in and then we had a delicious breakfast in the morning. We felt well taken care of and comfortable. I would've liked a little more info. on Yosemite- there were pretty books, but a book with some more practical info. would have been helpful, or a typed list of the b and b owners' suggestions.

Decided to follow fellow tripadvisors recommendations this trip and was not disappointed, thank you. This lovely B&B is close to the entrance of Yosemite and is the perfect place to stay. Wonderful room, no television or telephone and delicious breakfasts. The family are warm and welcoming and make you feel at home. You can also take Bob (the dog ) for a walk to see the horses.

Arrived after a long day in Yosemite on our way to San Francisco ...not too far from the Valley floor.
Katherine the owner was baking cookies when we arrived, I think she does this everyday. This is a beautiful house with loverly rooms, very clean and elegant ...no TV's in rooms and a large library with plenty of books about the area. It had a slight feeling of yesteryear about it in a totally positive way and the sky and stars at night were stunning. We drove into Groveland for supper which is a few miles so give yourself time. We were only there one night but had time to walk a little around the ranch, meet the horses, the cows, the dogs and the cats and we left for San Fran with a good breakfast served out on the screened porch. The website tells you everything and the place is beautiful & peaceful.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Brenda room which was not huge but very comfortable, I suspect all the rooms are ve...

We stayed one night in the cottage and one night in the main house, and we thoroughly enjoyed both. It is a beautiful, tranquil, family-friendly place and the staff/owners are very friendly. Our breakfast was good.

Just so you're not surprised, know that the cottage is split into two levels with a separate staircase entrance outside, and if you're in the cottage, you're on your own for meals, etc. However, it's still a great experience, especially if you value independence and privacy.

Another warning--the plumbing upstairs in the main house occasionally clogs, so be a frequent flusher :)

Also, make sure you have detailed directions/map for your journey to Yosemite, because it can be a bit tricky to navigate, especially at night, and you CAN'T rely on your GPS.

Also, I traveled in July 2011.

We traveled with another couple in late May to visit Yosemite National Park and based on information on the Yosemite Rose web site decided the cottage would be perfect for the four of us. Upon arrival we discovered some surprises! The staircase to the upstairs bedroom is on the OUTSIDE of the cottage (with insufficient lighting for making the journey up after dark). The air conditioner for the upstairs bedroom is a "free standing" unit that is not adequate for the area. The half bath upstairs is built under the slope of the roof and we could only take one step inside the door (had to pull a chair in to sit in front of the sink for brushing teeth, shaving, etc.). On a more positive note, the room was spacious and there were windows on each side of the room -- breeze at night was wonderful and birds singing in the morning were a delight!

While we knew in advance that cottage guests were not included in the breakfast at the main inn, we did not know that we would receive NO service during our stay. Our rooms were never serviced, and the trash was never discarded. Also, do not count on the wireless Internet! The router is in the main house, and the only time we could get online was late at night after other guests were asleep. There is a nice flat screen TV in the living room downstairs, and you guessed it, the satellite connection did not work!!

We stayed for the duration of our reservation because the lodging options in the area are minimal! We would recommend that you stay in the main house if you choose Yosemite Rose. It seems guests there have a more pleasant experience!

We really enjoyed our visit to Yosemite. We called Yosemite Rose ahead of time and told them our planned route from Reno. They told us were to go on our trip in and it was spot on. Be careful using mapquest or GPS for total time to your destination, as it is way off. The only negative about Yosemite Rose is the distance to the Valley Floor. However, if you don't have a reservation inside the park, there are not that many places that are closer. With that being said.
The rooms were great, we loved the house , the dogs, the horses, the cattle and of course the service. Great value ..Would recommend !

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mary room- named after one of the 4 daughters. I would ask for an upstairs bedroom
