“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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.

“Get-Away Cottage in Pastoral Setting”
Reviewed 24 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Round Hat Ranch was a perfect venue to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Settling into the spacious private cottage for 3 nights, we felt like newlyweds blessed to be guests in a magical place decades away from Silicon Valley.

We echo the sentiments of all the other 5 star reviewers. If you love nature and animals and are ready for a break from urban life, Round Hat Ranch is right for you AND Steve & Gayle are wonderful hosts. Enjoy!

“Absolute Perfection!”
Reviewed 28 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Your first impression is that this place is in country that you didn't think existed anymore--especially in California: rolling grass hills, dotted with trees as far as you can see. When you drive up to RoundHat Ranch, you think, Wow, I could live here. As you drive past horses watching with mild curiosity, you pull up to a beautiful cottage framed by a profusion of roses.

The owners clearly are veterans of staying in homes away from home, because everything about the cottage is designed to be comfortable and convenient. The furnishings are very attractive, and the artwork and memorabilia invite close inspection.

We used RoundHat as a base for exploring Yosemite and were not bothered by the drive to the park. Mariposa is a wonderful town to stop and explore, and the drive along the Merced River is spectacular--especially when the snow melt has the water running fast and furious.

We hated to leave . Stephen and Gayle are warm and gracious hosts, and we left feeling we had made two new friends. We hope to go back someday.

“Beautiful Cabin in a Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Beautiful, small, cute cabin that is perfect for couples. It has everything you could need, a beautiful patio, grill, kitchen, coffee maker, wifi, tv, washer/dryer, and even an outside shower for any adventures you don't want to track back inside. Stephen was wonderful, he met with us shortly after we arrived and cleared any questions we had and also informed us about the tourist activities we could do and how to save money on tire chain rental since we visited in the winter. Overall the trip was amazing and this cabin was definitely a contributing factor to that I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting this area and truly wants to escape and enjoy the trip.

This place is more than amazing. The host Steven and gayle were just as sweet as pie. Made you feel very comfortable. The cabin itself is a gem I mean everything about it is so well thought out you shouldn't need anything else. The condition is excellent as well updated and modern not old at all. Can/heating unit worked perfect. Bathroom perfect size kitchen too. There isn't an oven but they have everything else to make call your meals. Bed very comfy on and it even has a washer and dryer. I tell you what they did with this space was just amazing. So much to enjoy not nearly enough time. The drive to Yosemite from here is quite a ways 1 hour or so but you get to pass through mariposa and there are great views along the way. Try not to head back after dark though the roads are pitch black and it's impossible to see anything. Oh and the other down fall no phone service. They have wifi but you can't make calls. That gave me anxiety but other than that you are good. We will be back for sure.
