The Yosemite National Park area welcomed its newest luxury resort last month. Firefall Ranch is a sprawling mountain property situated on 300 acres of tranquil meadowland and forested mountains. Complete with newly built standalone cottages and villas each offering custom woodwork, double-sided fireplaces and covered decks, the ranch also has its roots firmly planted in history, having served as a stop on the original stagecoach route to Yosemite in the 1870s.
