On arrival we were greeted by a friendly female member of staff and even though we arrived before check in time, we were given a tour around the property and given a run down of the history which we all found very interesting - particularly the different uses of the property over the years and that previous guests had included...

Excellent place for lodging near Mariposa Grove, just 30 min drive from south entrance to the park. Very nice surroundings, good restaurant, cosy interiors and - most importantly for larger groups - great lobby with a fireplace and a genuine grand piano!

Thank you for your review. Many of our guests do appreciate our location, just 10 miles from Yosemite's southern entrance. On a clear day, with little road traffic, you can find yourself in the park in less than 15 minutes. We are also happy that you enjoyed our main lobby. It's character comes from the fact that it is the...

I stayed for one night with my son after we had been to Yosemite for a few days. It is handily placed for visiting Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove. The room was great and our bathroom a real luxury. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the huge log fire and comfy sofas made a pleasant change to the...

Thank you for your review. We are happy that our location and atmosphere appealed to you. We often have guests enjoying the fire in our main lounge well past midnight. The sofas were built out of rustic logs for Sierra Sky Ranch in the middle of last century. Our location is a key feature for us, but the fact that...

We visited Sierra Sky Ranch after the whole day of travel from Berkeley, CA. It is a really charming place to stay and with a unique style. When the group of almost forty folks are arriving at once that may ruin the places' organization - not in the Sierra Sky Ranch. The lady who took care of us was fabulous...

Thank you for your kind review. We host quite a few family reunions and weddings here at The Ranch, so large groups of travelers visiting the park are not difficult for us to accommodate. We're happy your experience with our Front Desk Hostess was so positive. We do our best to meet everyone's needs in a friendly and efficient manner....

We arrived in the beginning of November and stayed 3 nights in the Sierra Sky Ranch. Although we got lost finding it, apparently most GPS have a problem finding the hotel, we were welcomed warmly by the receptionist, who showed us around the historic hotel and told a bit about the history of the ranch. It has an amazing history!...

I have stayed for a night at the Sky Ranch. I have found it friendly, charming, stylish and full of history. I felt like in an old movie.
