About Teri Gambril

My husband and I have owned this property and enjoyed it with our kids for 20 years. The kids have all graduated and moved on so we thought we might as well share it with others to enjoy.

Teri Gambril purchased this house in 1995

Why Teri Gambril chose Yosemite Area

Beautiful home, easy drive to Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon, and Bass Lake. This is a perfect location close to town and yet very secluded. Close to Coasegold and Oakhurst, and only a 50-60 minute drive to Madera or Fresno.

Beautiful large home with a great pool and game room!!!! Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a hidden gem outside Yosemite National Park. We were looking for a place to stay for a large family trip to Yosemite and we were so blessed to find this beautiful home. This place has 4 bedrooms, 3 large living room, 4 bathroom excluding the one outside next to the pool and another one in the game room. Large kitchen with everything you need to cook a big meal. There is a great outdoor siting area outside the dining room as well as a covered patio with a grill, sink and bar downstairs near the pool which we used every night. Awesome pool and spa (swam every day). Tennis court (played few afternoons) and a game room (pool, ping pong, video game and a cool place for the kids to hang out). This place is huge. Large working ranch with sheep, llamas, chickens, and a horse. Fresh eggs every morning. We recommend this place and will be back again. The owner and the the Ranch manager are the best! So warm and welcoming.

What a joy! Our family had a beautiful week on the ranch while visiting Yosemite. The house and grounds were spectacular, and the caretakers, Blain and Margie, were delightful. Teri was incredibly kind and gracious and answered all of our questions quickly. We hiked, swam, hot tubbed under the stars, grilled out, played piano, played tennis, watched movies, visited the farm animals, and sprawled out in the comfy, huge house. We have stayed in several properties over the years, but we all agreed that this one is truly special. Thank you, Teri, for sharing your gorgeous home with us!

Lovely for a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the ranch for my sons wedding and are absolutely thrilled we did! Teri and Rick are the perfect couple who made this wedding come together for my kids on short notice after the highway to Yosemite washed out and we had to find a new venue in a hurry. Blain,their ranch foreman went out of his way to get everything prepared for us. The barn is absolutely adorable with white lights for ambiance and Teri set me up with Kim who draped it for us to make it even prettier. We had the ceremony out in a gorgeous pasture and our guests all commented on how beautiful the ranch is. The setting is gorgeous and the people are so very helpful and friendly. I can't say enough how pleased we are with Thunder Ridge Ranch. Thank you Gambril's!

Amazing home and ranch!

  • 5 of 5

I had my wedding here Sept 17th and it was beyond beautiful!! Very convenient for my wedding party to stay on the property with us in the HUGE ranch house. Very elegant yet has a cozy home feel. The owners and their family are extremely helpful and accommodating. We had a wonderful time and hope to rent the house again in the future!

We had a wonderful stay at Thunder Ridge Ranch and can't wait to stay again. On top of a wonderful vacation, our daughter got married at Thunder Ridge Ranch and she had the best of everything a bride could ask for.

Terri was the perfect host along with her brother Blane, the Groundskeeper and we had the perfect venue setting for pictures everywhere inside and out and beauty beyond what our daughter could have dreamed of. We were able to put up our family members so they could stay for the wedding as well.

The day we came to view the property, Terri pampered us and made us feel right at home as if we'd always known eachother. After inquiring of Terri she referred us to Kim the Florist and her brother Rick for lighting and they both did an outstanding job and we couldn't have asked for more expertise design and professionalism!

The highlight of the wedding was the poolside for guests and lighting and the long driveway surrounded by trees and mountains that made for the perfect wedding picture and setting for our daughter and her husband's love for God and His nature!

We loved staying at Thunder Ridge Ranch and never wanted to say goodbye and we will always look forward to coming back!

Relaxing Getaway, Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Thunder Ridge Ranch. The location can't be beat, nestled in the beautiful mountains of the Oakhurst area. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The house is gorgeous and very spacious, 10 people could easily stay there and it wouldn't feel crowded at all. Outdoors there was so much to do and see right on the grounds. This is a great place for families with kids, from the game room to the playground to the pool and hot tub to the tennis courts to the many animals on the ranch, they never ran out of things to do. We left feeling so refreshed and wished we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!
