Fodor's Expert Review Sierra Sky Ranch

50552 Rd. 632, Oakhurst, California, 93644, USA

Off Highway 41 just 10 miles south of the Yosemite National Park, this 19th-century cattle ranch near a hidden grove of giant sequoia trees provides a restful, rustic retreat. Upscale contemporary furnishings and amenities were introduced as part of a property-wide renovation in 2015, but the ranch's historic character was preserved. Most rooms have French doors that open out onto airy porches that are ideal for unwinding on a summer evening, and guests stay connected to the modern world with cable TV and free Wi-Fi access. There's a steak house on-site, and the swimming pool is open in summer. Heating and air-conditioning in all rooms make the ranch a four-season getaway—the stone fireplace in the Sierra Suite is a wintertime bonus.
