Yosemite National Park, California
Need a relaxing refuge to retreat to after a day of adventuring among the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park? Our warm and inviting home is located inside the park gates equidistant from the celebrated features of Yosemite: the namesake Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias and 800 miles of hiking trails. Over and over guests tell us that when they come back at the end of the day, they feel like they are coming home.

You will enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen with full-size, quality appliances, granite countertops and a full complement of cooking equipment (pots, pans, coffee maker, blender, and so on).

Interaction with guests
We are here during most guests visits and are happy to provide tips and advice for seeing the park. That said, we try to give you your privacy if you can navigate the park on your own (we originally were 'hands off' but found most guests do want help deciding where to go and what to do). That said, sometimes we take our own vacations. So while we do meet most guests in person during their stay, we sometimes are away ourselves. In such cases, we are happy to help you plan in advance and we have a caretaker and cleaning service that can meet your basic needs while we're away.

We chose this place since it was so close to the Yosemite valley and since the pictures looked really nice; we were not disappointed. After driving by some of the other places we considered, it was night and day for how close this place is...More

About the neighbourhood
Yosemite West is located inside the park entrance, and sits near and intersection that takes you in three other directions to several of the park's most amazing features: Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and Wawona, including the Wawona golf course are all within 15 miles (30 minutes) from Yosemite West in three different directions. The Badger Pass ski area is only seven miles away. Tuolumne Meadows and Tioga Pass on the eastern border of the park will be a two-hour drive or more.

Our home is near the end of a cul-de-sac and normally a quiet, relaxing place to spend a vacation.
Getting around
You need a car to stay here. There is a shuttle system in Yosemite, but it serves only a few miles of road at the east end of Yosemite Valley. To get most places in the park, including our house, you need a car.

In winter, we recommend renting an All-Wheel Drive vehicle. You are still required to carry chains in chain control areas, but if you have AWD, you will rarely need to actually apply chains, which can make your trip significantly more comfortable.
