My husband and I were traveling across California with my father and The Ponderosa House was an ideal place to stay during our visit to Yosemite National Park. This house is nicely decorated and kept spotless. The porch was a relaxing place to spend our evenings and watch shooting stars.

SERENITY: Relaxing and Beautiful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful stay at The Ponderosa House visiting Yosemite National Park. The home is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, clean and well maintained. The house makes you feel at home. The kitchen is well equipped. The photos accurately reflect the appearance and amenities of house. It does take 40 minutes of driving to Yosemite Valley, yet the house is located right off of Hwy 140, the drive was a breeze. Having an internet access for a mountain get a way was a nice surprise for my teens. Better yet, what I really loved about the house was the outdoor garden. It was absolutely lovely to be soaked in a hot tub under lush fruit trees after a long hike at the Yosemite. The backyard reflects owner's love of nature and the pride of ownership. I hope to visit this house again soon.

Awesome Yosemite getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here recently with out two year old daughter and some friends of ours. Coming from a big city, the location was in a perfectly quiet middle-of-nowhere type of area.

Finding the place wasn't hard, the hosts emailed us a drawn map ahead of time with directions from the nearest main road. Try and get groceries ahead of time, as the nearest town is about 20 mins away and doesn't have too much to offer.

The house itself is immaculate, not much to look at from the outside but the interior is even more beautiful than in the pictures. As stated there are 3 separate bedrooms with queen/twin beds. There is also a small extra bed in one of the rooms as well as a folding cot. All of us were perfectly comfortable staying there together, although I suppose another bathroom would have made it better.

My wife was ecstatic to find an entire closet full of board games, the hosts definitely know how to make you feel at home, leaving little notes here and there reminding you to enjoy your stay. We never really saw anyone the entire time, we were sent instructions on how to get into the house ahead of time and no one bothered us while we were there.

The entrance to Yosemite was just up the main road that the house is off of. A little bit of a drive, but you would be hard pressed to find anything closer considering the layout of the area. We didn't do much hiking, but the hot-tub was awesome to have at the end of each day either way.

I will definitely be going back to the Ponderosa house, I would recommend it to anyone.
