Why Betsy and Pete chose Yosemite National Park

Imagine this. Living in a forest of trees; surrounded by Yosemite National Park. Quiet, uncrowded, peaceful. Look above at night and explore the stars of the Milky Way stretched before you in the darkening sky. This is what makes Yosemite West a very special place to stay inside the gates of the Park.

What makes this apartment unique

Jumping Deer apartment's living area in a quiet setting nestled among tall pine trees. Sit back on the outdoor deck with book in hand and rustling trees around you. Awesome! Barbeque some steaks on the grill and discuss the day's adventures far from the crowds of the valley. Your quiet retreat does exist here.

Great stay in Yosemite!

  • 4 of 5
The Jumping Deer apartment made a great home base for our Labor Day weekend visit to Yosemite. The best thing about it is the location, away from the crowds in the valley yet inside the park so you don't have the extra drive and wait at the entrances for a multiple day visit. You'll do a lot of driving to see all the sights in the park so why add any extra miles to your visit? Food service in the park isn't that great so it's also nice to be able to cook with a full kitchen. The unit is nothing fancy, but it's well maintained and we found everything clean and in working order. It was in the mid-90s in the valley while we were there. Not sure what the temperature was in the unit, but it wasn't too warm without air conditioning. We just kept the windows open and used the fans. The gas grill worked well and we enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio one day. Only a few uninvited flies came to visit.

As mentioned in other reviews you have to go down a lot of steps to get to the unit so if anyone in your party has difficulty with stairs this property is not for you! The other two floors were occupied while we were there, but we did not hear any noise from above so the noise insulation must be good.

Couple of negatives...the sofa bed is low quality. My adult son put up with sleeping on it for three nights, but he wasn't happy about it. May be OK for small children, but not for average size adults. If you're an internet junkie you will not be happy with the limited wifi in the unit. The times that wifi is made available are the times that you'll probably be out enjoying the park.

I'd recommend this unit for a couple or for a family with two small children. Four adults may find it too cozy unless you're used to travelling with four adults in hotel room. The owners were great at communicating by email and their directions and recommendations were right on!

Maybe better in the winter

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is pretty much what you'd expect for the price - it's a bit dated, with a few upgrades, but it has everything you need. The grill is nice and the kitchen is fairly well stocked with spices and cooking utensils. The location is GREAT - you are close to almost all of the park attractions, but removed from most of the crowd at the Valley.

The one bad thing is the lack of air conditioning. We were so hot at night, we barely slept. There is a small tabletop fan in the bedroom, but even with all the windows open, it was just too hot (there are only small windows on one side of the apartment, so it doesn't really allow a cross breeze) Being so close to Glacier Pass, i am sure it's great in the winter (there is heat).

A few items of note - there are A LOT of stairs to get into the apartment. The view is mostly of neighbors - not super close, but it's not really a mountain view. Wifi was a bit spotty, even when it's turned on, but it's to be expected in the remote location. No cell service either.

Overall, it's a decent place, but if you like a cool room at night, this may not be the best place for you.

Owner's Response: We appreciate feed back from our guests and we are happy that for the most part, you enjoyed your stay with us. We also feel that we are in a great location to explore Yosemite National Park and we try to outfit the apartment so that guests will have a comfortable stay. That is why we installed a ceiling fan in the bedroom last year for the short period, in the summer, when the temperatures can be uncomfortable. It does a great job of circulating the air to keep the room cooler. Unfortunately, the reviewer either did not see the ceiling fan or chose not to use it.

All in all, winter or summer, The Jumping Deer is a great choice for a trip to Yosemite.

Great Yosemite base

  • 5 of 5
Janine and I were booked in to Jumping Deer at the height of the Republican inspired government shutdown. Ordinarily this might have detracted from our enjoyment of Yosemite NP, however Jumping Deer proved to be the ideal base from which to view the delights of the area, and in our case without crowds of tourists getting in the way! The apartment was cosy and very well appointed with comfortable bed and ample kitchen. Pete and Betsy went the extra mile to ensure our stay was a success and their remarkable generosity in the face of 'the shutdown' adversity was truly exceptional. We loved the close proximity of the apartment to the main Yosemite attractions and returning each evening to a real home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a wonderful review! The Government Shutdown was a surprise but we are happy you enjoyed your visit anyway. We're glad that our suggestions on what to see and do worked well for you. Hope to see you again when even more of what the Park has to offer is available to you.

Best for couples.

  • 5 of 5
After a few really stressful work weeks, my husband and I wanted to getaway to relax and unwind. Jumping deer is the right place to do that. It's within the park gates and close to all major attractions of Yosemite. Glacier Point and Tunnel View are only 30 minutes drive away. We did the Valley Floor tour in the afternoon and drove up to glacier Point in the evening to watch sunset. The kitchen is well stocked and the unit is super clean. There's wifi which comes hand as there's no proper cell phone reception around the area. There's a land-line which can be used with a phone card. the porch has a grill, table and chairs. Really a nice place to enjoy your morning coffee while hearing the birds chirp.

Perfect for a Couple

  • 5 of 5
The Jumping Deer condo is located inside the Yosemite park property in a small quiet residential area. This location made it really easy to go to the different areas of the park.
The condo was clean, well equipped and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on! Loved using the fan provided as a source of white noise, even tho we didnt need it for cooling purposes.
We bought groceries on our way into the park and it was nice to be able to cook our own meals and use the grill on the deck.
The TV viewing was great via the satellite. The internet availability was not so reliable. We finally got some emails to go out after a few attempts.
The hosts send you lots of useful information that made it easy to plan for the trip and also enjoy the area once you arrive.
I loved seeing the plaques on the wall of the different patents the host had. Very interesting!

Perfect for the 3 of us

  • 5 of 5
Within park borders, Jumping Deer was perfect for the three of us and our Yosemite stay. The apartment was excellently appointed with everything we would need, kitchen, bath, two rooms for private sleeping quarters, and a lovely deck. The location was centrally located for visits to the Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, and Mariposa Grove - all "must see" places within Yosemite. Be prepared for 61 steps from car to the apartment level. We looked at Yosemite lodging choices, but this was easily a better choice. No complaints.
