A STONE’S THROW FROM YOSEMITE
Welcome to Red Tail Ranch, a stunning 50 acre property nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills community of Groveland, just outside Yosemite National Park. Surrounded by meadows and oak woodlands, all amenities are present on site for individual gatherings, events, workshops or retreats.
There are numerous trails on and off the property for hiking, mountain biking, nature walks, or simply strolling. Connect with the community by tapping into our network of local businesses that provide yoga, massage, catering, photography, and more.
Plan your visit or event at Red Tail Ranch. With everything here, you may never make it to Yosemite.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation people. The Southern Sierra Miwuk were one of the original tribes of Yosemite National Park and surrounding areas.

“What an absolutely charming place to stay – so very peaceful, nature all around, fantastic amenities and as two women with a teenager we felt safe and very comfortable. Not just as described but better and beautiful understated design – we enjoyed our stay very much! Hot tub w stargazing was amazing.”

“Highly recommend staying at the Redtail Ranch if you are planning a trip to Yosemite! Beautiful room with even better views. The stars in the sky from the hot tub were second to none. Fantastic amenities with the outside kitchen. Len was extremely responsive and helpful. Clear instructions for entry into our suite.”

“Red Tail Ranch was excellent! The property was peaceful and beautiful, and the space itself was clean and cozy. Len provided thoughtful and generous amenities; the yogurt, granola, and drip coffee machine waking up super early to get to Yosemite a breeze. The king size bed and linens were so comfortable, and the hot tub and plush robes were perfect after a long day of hiking. we’re already planning our next trip back!”
