INSIDE YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK - HUMMINGBIRD PINES HOUSE

Yosemite National Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Dates for August still available. Check our calendar for availability!

We purchased and renovated the Hummingbird Pines House in 2013. Our other house in Yosemite West is Hummingbird Raven House, listing #94764.

Please check availability on our calendar before contacting us.

This house sleeps a maximum of 10 people.

This is a large house (1700 square feet) so we require a minimum of 4 guests over the age of 3.

Up to 2 children under age 3 stay free, 10% discount on one week stays. (Please let us know if any of your children are aged 3 and under when you fill out the inquiry form.)

Yosemite West is inside Yosemite National Park. It is only a twenty minute drive from El Capitan and Yosemite Village, and all the main attractions of Yosemite National Park. This is also the closest lodging for Badger Pass Ski Area, with downhill and nordic skiing - only eight miles away from your door.

This Yosemite West home is located just 2 miles from the Glacier Point Road, so you are very close to Taft Point and Glacier Point, the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley.

The Hummingbird Pines House is a newly renovated home, with easy access. It is one of the only rentals in Yosemite West with only two stairs into the house, making it ideal for guests of all ages.

The upstairs master bedroom has a king size bed and bath. Downstairs are two additional bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. We have an upstairs loft area with two single beds, and a fold-out sofa bed in the downstairs living area which sleeps 2. All beds have comforters and pillows. Note: we cannot accommodate more than 10 guests at a time. We also have a 2 night minimum.

This house is equipped with a full kitchen, a large dining table and deck dining furniture.

Like most homes in Yosemite West, Hummingbird Pines House does not have air conditioning.

About Michelle and Peter

Peter and Michelle

We have visited and loved Yosemite for many years, and are thrilled to have two vacation rentals in the park.

We love Yosemite for hiking, climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing and spending time in nature. Please feel free to email us with questions!

Michelle and Peter purchased this house in 2013

Why Michelle and Peter chose Yosemite National Park

Hummingbird Pines is in the park, but outside the bustle of Yosemite Valley so it is quiet and peaceful. This house is ideal for groups of family and friends who want a nice house to come back to after a long day of adventure

What makes this house unique

This house is unusual in Yosemite West for it's easy access - there are only 2 stairs leading into the house, making it ideal for family groups with elderly members. It's a beautiful, large house with a cathedral ceiling in the living room. The house has a large kitchen and dining area, a barbecue on the deck and large living room with DVD player and DVD library.

Yosemite West is inside the Park boundaries, so it's a perfect location to enjoy Yosemite (20 minutes to Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point, and close to various trailheads). It has the advantage of being very close to the Badger Pass ski area, and being at a higher elevation than the Valley, which keeps the temperatures more comfortable in the summer months.

Wonderfully comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5
Our family from California and Massachusetts stayed here while visiting Yosemite National Park and it was perfect. It gave us a convenient location (about 25 minutes from Yosemite Valley) and the ability to spend time together. The setting was beautiful, the accommodations comfortable, and location convenient. Thanks so much.

Charming House for Awesome Yosemite Retreat

  • 4 of 5
My family and I loved the high ceilings and wooden interior of the house. It definitely made the house seem very spacious and could easily accommodate a large family. The house is not infant proof as our little one kept falling down and bumping his head but not many places are outside of our own home. The house was very clean upon arrival and everything including bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms were tidy and spotless. Lots of towels and dishes at your disposal. Our little one loved that there was a TV with children DVDs. Also some good guide books on Yosemite in the library. The house does not have Wifi but we were trying to get away so not a big deal to us. Really nice to have an outdoor patio with BBQ grill which we used every night. However, the refrigerator was a bit outdated and not keeping our food cold. To be on the safe side we froze all of the meats and just defrosted them before grilling.

Also, tips for travelers coming here is to be conscious about how much trash they make. There are not available trash bins outside of the house (all the neighbors have locked bins) and because of possible bears in the area we dropped off our trash down the road towards Wawona. On a side note, we did get to see a mama bear and her cub on the drive to Wawona during the trash run which was pretty awesome!

The house is very centrally located near all of the sights of Yosemite. Was very convenient to drive to Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, and Wawona. If I had to stay between Curry Village or Yosemite West. I would definitely pick this house again to get away from the crowds and more comfortable accommodation. The house itself is in a super quiet neighborhood and towards the bottom of the road in Yosemite West. No breathtaking views but that's easily accessible if you drive up to Glacier Point or Tunnel View.

The owners provided clear instructions and answered all of our questions very timely. Overall a great place to stay in Yosemite.

Owner's Response: Thomas, we're so glad that you and your family enjoyed the Hummingbird Pines House! We don't have wifi because trees around the house block satellite access. Also, we're sorry your group was impacted by the fact that there are no trash bins outside due to bears. Our housekeepers provide a trash service for guests, and their contact info is on the bulletin board in the entry way.

Thanks so much for staying with us, and thank you for the nice review!

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Hummingbird Pines is the perfect retreat, a great base for seeing Yosemite and an ideal home for a family gathering. With only 2 steps to enter the house and bedrooms on both the first and second floor, there is space to accommodate all ages and abilities. The warm pine interior is welcoming. The deck looking out through the pines is the perfect place to hang out and enjoy the view. The house is generously equipped with comfy beds, furniture and everything we needed. Best of all is the location, close to all of Yosemite. I would go back in a minute!

Family Holiday time!

  • 5 of 5
There was 10 of us and 2 dogs and we were definitely happy with this cabin.
Cozy and fun. 4 kids were happy watching some movies and we all worked on puzzles. We took the drive each day down to the Yosemite valley and enjoyed some ranger walks. The place was clean and everything worked just fine. We would definitely go again.

Terrific home close to the valley

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of friends having a reunion weekend in Yosemite and rented the Hummingbird Pines house. Everything about our experience was top-notch. We were largely looking for a jumping off place for excursions to the valley, a place we had enough room (for the 9 of us) and we could bbq, cook and relax off the hikes. Hummingbird Pines fit the bill. From my initial inquiry email, Michelle and Peter were very responsive. It was easy to set up once the dates were open and all of my questions were answered in a timely fashion. As billed, the house was close to the valley (much better than outside the gates in Mariposa where I've stayed before). It was clean (newly renovated deck, new barbeque) and all the amenities were included as noted on the website. It was clean and well-maintained, spacious, with a high-ceilinged living room and ample bedroom space. We ate in both nights, and had no trouble with the grill, oven, fridge, coffee maker etc. Everything checked out. The single drawback was a lack of stereo system (the TV set up allows for CDs) but no jack for an iphone/mp3. However, Peter and Michelle were receptive to feedback and so I raised with them this single criticism. Otherwise, totally great stay and I would recommend this home completely.

Roomy, clean, and convenient

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed this cabin -- nothing fancy, but very roomy bedrooms and common rooms. Clean and convenient to Mariposa Grove and Glacier Point, reasonably convenient to Yosemite Valley. The 20-something kids lamented the lack of wifi, but parents did not.
