Overview
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Yosemite National Park, California
If you want to detach from your everyday life and/or the crowds in Yosemite, a respite, a retreat to recharge at RoundHat Ranch is a natural remedy for you, replete with Xtra Outdoor Shower for added relaxation.
A RoundHat Ranch stay is a great addition to your Yosemite vacation experience.

The 'Cottage' is nestled within the ranch, having its own private fenced area. You can move about the ranch along the many tree-lined trails, seeing the animals, and taking in the sights, sounds, and feel of the ranch.
The Cottage has been designed, both inside and out, for a...

About the neighbourhood
Catheys Valley is in Mariposa County along State Highway 140 to Yosemite. It is an area of Oak Woodlands, Knolls, Hills, and Meadows, with the Sierra Mountains and Yosemite bordering to the east. Many old Chinese rock walls define old boundaries and are now historical preservation sites.
Catheys Valley has a rural ranching lifestyle of small and large ranches, the kind you see while traveling, and wonder how you can experience it for yourself.
RoundHat Ranch puts you into that experience, where you can get the sights, sounds, and feel of ranch living.
Nature is the attraction and the main activity, with quiet, space, and privacy as amenities.
The sights can give inspiration to the photographer and nature lover, like it did to Ansel Adams and John Muir.
Less than one mile from RoundHat...
