“Where the Traveler is No Stranger”
A place for all seasons, nestled on 62 forested acres. A quiet retreat, to meditate, avoid crowds, relax, swim, wander trails, or just enjoy nature in the Sierras. A star gazer’s paradise and bird haven — just 22 miles from Yosemite’s famous Big Oak Flat entrance. The farm house built in 1860, with its 1905 2-story addition, once headquartered the Yosemite Power Company and promoted heritage orchards. It is the home of the owners and full time caretakers. Cottages were first added in the 1940s and 50s and modernized in 1996. A motor court was built in the 1950s, called the uptown cottage, and houses three renovated and comfortable rooms. All rooms have a private bath, and some have a covered deck, fireplace and whirlpool tub. Named Peri Ranch in the 1860’s, the property was first used for timber extraction and supplied an on-site lumber mill and other nearby mills. Soon after being settled, a portion of the extensive Golden Rock Water Ditch was constructed across the ranch, and the ranch became a demonstration orchard with fruit trees. As a key infrastructure for drinking water, mining, and agriculture the Ditch’s importance grew. Various companies and entrepreneurs struggled to keep water flowing to the mines and towns. This led to the formation of the Yosemite Power Company, which was eventually headquartered on the ranch. In 1946, the ranch was acquired by Edith and T. Wesley Osborne, who renamed it Sugar Pine Ranch. They continued the tradition of hospitality services, which operated informally, off and on, from around the time that the 2-story farm house structure was build in 1903-07. The Maxwell’s acquired the ranch in 1995. After considerable rehabilitation opened The Inn at Sugar Pine Ranch for discerning and nature loving guests.Sixty-two acre Sugar Pine Ranch, with its historic 1860 original ranch house and 1905 two-story lodging and offices addition, 1940s cottages, 1950s motor court, and nice sized swimming pool added in 1991, along with miles of forested trails, form the foundation for a unique and quaint hospitality business. The Maxwell’s recognized the ranch as an important historic asset, and have acted to preserve it for greater community good — and for visitor and future generation appreciation of what life was like in times past.We invite you to explore our Web site, SugarPineRanch.com, to see for yourself the many ways we can be of service.
