For the price? 5*!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 stayed here in mid August 2014. For all the bad reviews about the interior (yes, it's a bit dated) I want to say this place is all about being OUTSIDE! Yosemite is on your doorstep, but in your backyard are great walks, PLUS a hot tub and a little pool!
There is a BBQ and a fully fitted kitchen. A deck to sit on and watch the sun go down.

The only downside is that it takes around 45 minutes to get to the park gates. We didn't mind as it's a pretty nice 45 minute drive.

Lovely place!

  • 4 of 5
8 of us stayed in this lovely cabin for 3 days and really enjoyed it. Although the decor is a little bit old, there's everything you need and, most importantly, it's in a beautiful, quiet setting. We loved the pool and the hot tub! One evening we were visited by two large dears and often by a friendly local dog during the day (my daughter loved it!). We had a little problem with one extra inflatable mattress, but it was promptly substituted with 2 folding beds; all on all a good experience and would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do our best to be prompt in any concerns our guest have. As we may not have the most updated decor, we pride in the fact that we try to keep one of the lowest rates available for this location to Yosemite.

Great value, location, amenities, and pool

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in mid June, 2014 while we were visiting Yosemite National Park. We would definitely stay here again! We saw wild turkeys, deer, quail, jackrabbits, and numerous birds at the bird feeder thoughtfully placed right by the house. My kids loved the friendly dog and cat that visited outside. The pool was immaculately clear and well maintained. Because it was 90+ when we visited, we never used the hot tub, but it was in a great private location. The wall mounted evaporated air cooler was very effective at cooling the house even in the hot temperatures - and we appreciated the owners leaving it on so the house was cool when we got there (and the extra ice as well!). The house was very clean and had a lot of extra supplies that we appreciated. There was space for our family of 5, and some nice things to do when we were home enjoying a break from Yosemite. The drive to the entrance to the park was much less than an hour, and very scenic and enjoyable. (although it climbs and twists and turns - so bring motion sickness medication if you have anyone in the family with those issues). We had no trouble finding the home with our phone's gps (I phone Google maps) although cell reception is spotty, so you will want to download the directions and maps just in case. The wifi was a bit of a puzzle, as we never did find the wifi link to sign onto as mentioned in the home information (they should be updated possibly) - but we were able to reset the router and we used the one that turned on and off with the router. It was decent reception - enough to check email and keep in contact with family members without running up a lot of minutes, which was all we needed. The short road that the house is on is gravel, and it is very dusty, so you have to drive slowly on it, but that is when we saw the quail and jackrabbits. Cable worked well, but we didn't use it much. The house was ideal for our family - comfortable, clean, well kept up, and family friendly. If you are looking for a lot of high end amenities, extras, or finishes, this might not fit your needs. If you want a place away from the crowds at Yosemite, with space for family members to spread out and relax, at a great price WITH a pool and a hot tub, this is the place to get!

Yosemite getaway

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at this house for our Visit to Yosemite. The house itself is not anything fancy but for the price it suited our family of 5 just fine. Im not a fan of carpet but it did give the house a cozier feeling. I have to say the pool and the hot tub were a big plus and we definitely took advantage of them in those particularly hot summer days.The house was well stocked and clean. Our boys enjoyed the playing outdoors and the pool so were happy with our choice to stay here.

We recently stayed at this home for a visit to Yosemite and we enjoyed the home and the area very much. The home is not fancy..it is very relaxing and comfortable and conveniently located to visit Yosemite; the drive to the park is lovely! The pool and hot tub are awesome-before and after walking around Yosemite. The owners were responsive and easy to work with! Sandy answered my questions and is available but left us alone to enjoy ourselves. There are walking sticks for your use which we took advantage of and lots of ice in the freezer which was a great help. There are different areas in the yard and on the large deck to enjoy. Overall we were very happy with our experience. I would gladly return and recommend to all.

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5
The property was very difficult to find as the directions were not sent to us in advance and there is no cell phone reception in the valley allowing contact once on the road. The house was clean but basic; the hot tub and pool great for the kids. But the deck had alot of rot and exposed nails and was quite unsafe. The springs had collapsed on the mattress in the master bedroom and so the first two nights were very uncomfortable. An attempt was made to replace the mattress but the substitute was not much better. The owner did try to be responsive but did not seem particularly concerned. Position was ok being about an hours drive from the valley.
