Overview

Yosemite National Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Split-Level Cottage For 2+, Cal King, HDTV, WiFi, whirlpool tub for two

Craftsman style private Guest House with the best privacy and views in the area. Our reviews set the standard for quality and service. The Mountain Hideaway is full of designer grade appointments with CAL King bed, whirlpool bathtub, full kitchen, dining room, and private deck with barbecue. The Hideaway has central air conditioning for a perfect summer retreat.

The comfortable living room includes remote control fireplace, HD satellite TV with networks, cable news, HBO, ESPN's, WiFi and views of the park.

A full kitchen and breakfast bar is provided with all the cookware, plates and utensils you'll need for a quick breakfast or gourmet meal. It's complete with gas stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The dining area is surrounded by 180 degree mountain views.

The luxurious bath suite includes a 6' whirlpool bathtub for 2, Italian marble shower, radiant floor heat and morning light through private windows. The Hideaway is located in a forested mountain community within the gates of Yosemite Park.

The Hideaway is a luxury house for 2 but can accommodate up to 4 with the extra guests sleeping on aero beds on the floor in the living room area. Our property is a unique home and may not be suitable for children under 4 yrs old due to open stairs, fireplace and steep mountain terrain surrounding the Hideaway. There is a $25 or $35 (depending on the season) per night, per extra guest for the 3rd and 4th person or child staying at our cottage. The floor plan is an open design with bedroom above the living room.

Weeklong stays include use of the laundry room in the cottage. A touch-up cleaning is also included with week stays.

Check-in is at 4pm and check-out is 11am. We will accommodate other check-in requests if possible. Plan on additional time to drive thru the Park to arrive at the Hideaway.

Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is located at 6000' elevation in Yosemite West. This unique community is located within the gates of the Park with the best central location for day tripping to Yosemite Valley, Badger Pass Ski, Glacier Point, Wawona and the Big Trees.

The high county of Toulumne Meadows is a 90 minute drive thru mountain vistas, high alpine lakes and forests of giant sequoia trees.

There is access to walking or mountain biking forest roads from the Hideaway. Skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are a short drive to Glacier Point where you can rent all the gear you need for an epic winter adventure.

Cell service is very good for Verizon and Golden State with 3G service from the Hideaway. There is no Cell service for other carriers. Sorry it's a remote mountain location. A land-line telephone with local service is included and you may use your calling card.

CAUTION: Winter travel thru the park requires all cars/trucks to carry snow chains. Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is located on a steep access road where winter snows may require special parking conditions. Please email or call with snow condition access questions.

We look forward to hearing from you, Melissa and Jeff

Why Jeff & Melissa Hornacek chose Yosemite National Park

We stumbled across this unique property 17 years ago and fell for it right away. We built our home 10 years ago and just finished the guest cottage this year. We enjoy sharing this special place with like-minded people who treasure the wonders of nature, enjoy quality accommodations in a quiet and private neighborhood.

We have designed and built beautiful homes in the community from large log estates to cozy private cottages. Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is the latest creation of craftsmanship and quality finishes with one of the best locations in the area.

What makes this cottage unique

The Hideaway is a new spacious and luxurious guest house for two with great big views of the park and the Sierra Nevada mountains. It sits high above thousands of acres of forests, granite domes and waterfalls in the distance. Its first rate with central air conditioning, whirlpool tub for two, HD TV and full kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is a luxury cottage with everything we needed. It's private, quiet and comfortable. Great location for the Park. My girl loved the decor and the jacuzzi tub for two was great

1st wedding anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two nights at the Hideaway - best decision I made for our 1st wedding anniversary getaway! Easy location to get to-and-from the Yosemite Valley. Short drive to Glacier Point & Sentinel Dome. Well furnished and cozy interior. The scenic, private deck were great for breakfast, beers after a long hike, and star gazing. Jeff and Melissa also provided us with helpful maps, points of interest & snacks/wine for our weekend. I recommend the Hideaway to ALL - my wife and I definitely look forward to our next stay!

Birthday weekend hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Hideaway for 3 nights to celebrate her 30th birthday. We were hoping for a snowy weekend were we could sit by the fire and read and relax and boy were we lucky! We awoke on her birthday to snow coming down in big, fat flakes and it continued throughout the day; the first snow since December, what luck! The Hideaway was everything we had hoped for, amazing views of the forest below us and the amenities inside were fantastic. The tub was spacious and relaxing after a long day hiking, the fireplace was so cozy and warm, perfect for cuddling up on the couch with a good book (which there were plentiful of). When we felt restless we drove 20 minutes or so to Yosemite Valley for hiking or went outside to make a snowman (a first for me!). It was the perfect birthday weekend. We cannot wait to go back!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights at this beautiful hideaway cottage to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! It was simply stunning- the detail, the amenities and the views! The pictures online are amazing and in person, it is perfection! You're not from Badger pass or the Valley floor..30 minute drive at most and it's a beautiful drive there! Nothing better than waking up to the spectacular views and after a long day of sightseeing, the balcony is perfect for star gazing! We cannot wait to go back! If I had one complaint, it's that we didn't stay longer!

Wonderful Place

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely place. The minute we walked in the door we didn't want to leave. The design of the cabin is excellent and the views are spectacular. Perfect for two people. The Owners are easy to work with, professional and friendly (yet not intrusive). The cabin is downhill from their home so they are available if needed. One of the best places we rented on VRBO. The place was immaculately clean. The bathroom has heated tile floors which were great along with the effective heaters and the gas fireplace, as it was 25 degrees outside during our stay.

The WiFi was intermittent, at best. Not reliable enough to do real work or to depend on for communication. All of our devices use Verizon and that was also sketchy. The stove/oven in the kitchen was inadequate for any real cooking -which I like to do while on vacation. But for simple things it was fine.

We didn't mind the 50 steps down to the cabin - we were there to do some hiking anyway! Yosemite Valley was less than 30 minutes away.

We highly recommend this great hideaway.

Perfect Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 nights at this gorgeous, top quality home with fantastic views! I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to see Yosemite during the day and feel spoiled each evening. The lay out is fantastic with a comfortable bed, contemporary kitchen and relaxing TV area. The location is even better than I thought it would be as it is close to the popular areas on the SW part of Yosemite. The owners also see to the many details needed when traveling and they were incredibly detailed in our communications prior to arriving. The only concern would be the many steps you must navigate to get to the home (well worth the effort but not handicap friendly). Overall, an A+ for design, location, quality and supplies! Absolutely wonderful! A fantastic place for a couple to get away!
