  • Hi I stayed here in 2020, it seems like you are booked up for the weekend Feb 18th - 21 but just wanted to double check. Thanks Shane Corban
    Hello Shane - Sorry for the delay in responding to your inquire. Unfortunately, we are closed until March 1st.

  • Do you allow pets?
    Hello, We do allow dogs. They must remain on a leash on the property. And there is an old friendly ranch dog on the property who usually lays down near the house, he will greet you, so the dog must be friendly with other dogs.
    Answered on 17 June 2022
  • I see that you have one room available the week of July 27th. Do you know if we could get day passes into the park or is it too late? We are looking for a place to stay for 4 nights with hiking and mountain scenery. We live in LA.
    You may wait 48 hours prior to your date to try and get a reservation through, or you can take YARTS, or book a tour with an outfitter.

Located just 20 minutes from the entrance to Yosemite, this adult only lodging is located on a private 50-acre ranch. A fully equipped 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom house and 2 additional guest rooms with private bathrooms and independent entrances are available on their own or all together. Hot tubs, an outside kitchen and sitting areas are available for all guests. All rooms offer a light breakfast, soft bathrobes, free wifi, and full access to hiking and biking trails on and off the property.
Robb, Regina and their son Noah are the owners of the property. They purchased the space with hopes to protect and restore the meadow ecosystem while sharing its beauty with the world. Ashley shares their love and dedication to this land and works closely with them to protect and manage the property. Together the three of them strive to spend most of their time outdoors in and around Yosemite National Park which makes the small foothill community of Groveland a perfect place to live.
The town of Groveland is a gateway community to Yosemite National Park. Travelers from all over the world come to visit Yosemite. Groveland is a small quaint gold rush town, with nice restaurants and close to many outdoor activities. Red Tail Ranch is 7 miles from the town of Groveland and 20 miles from the park entrance.
