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.

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 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.

COULDN'T ASK FOR BETTER

Couldn't ask for better

I live in the San Francisco bay area and we had 4 people staying, which is the max for this unit. We love Yosemite and went up for just the weekend. Jumping Deer was perfect for our small group and short stay. The place is clean and comfortable. There are audio directions for everything in the unit so there was no confusion on how to use something or what to do. The patio was our favorite part, we used it a lot since it is summer.

The location, Yosemite West, is perfectly placed for staying in Yosemite, without camping in the valley or staying so far outside of the park in one of the lodges. It is right by Glacier Point and Badger Pass Road and close to the valley as well, about a 25-35 minute drive for each. We went to the valley and floated down the river by day and then drove to Glacier point to watch the sunset and star gaze by night. AMAZING!

We really could not ask for more! We will be planning another trip in the winter and spring next year, but I think we will stay at Pinearbor Retreat, the house that sits on top of this unit for a big group. I cannot wait to go back to Yosemite and I definitely will be staying here.

Cheers!

VERY NICE!

The best thing about this property was the location - right within Yosemite, roughly between the turn off for Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove. The apartment was very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. Thanks for the fresh ground coffee!
