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. 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

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

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!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
I don't think I have ever written a review of a hotel or other accommodation in my life. However, this trip demanded an exception be made. If you are going to spend any amount of time in Yosemite, this is the place to stay. You will not find better accommodations anywhere -- not even at The Ahwannee, which we visited. The cottage is brand-new and hand-crafted by the owner who is a professional builder. It has every amenity, and the owners took great care to make us feel welcome, providing a "treat bag" with snacks and stocking the kitchen with coffee and soda. The owners live close by and were attentive to our needs, which were few thanks to their great care in preparing the cottage for our arrival. We stayed a 7 days with our 9-year-old son, and there was more than enough room for three. We cooked our own meals the entire week, and the kitchen had everything we needed for this purpose. We spent our days touring, hiking, biking and horseback riding. We reserved a couple of days for rest and relaxation, and the cottage was the perfect place to unwind with breathtaking mountain views in a very quiet residential area. I don't think we saw a single neighbor during our visit. The owners have stocked the cottage with DVDs, books, and games for your enjoyment. For those readers who have never visited Yosemite, it is one of the most beautiful places in America, but also a bustling center for tourism down in the valley. So if you prefer a quiet, relaxing location that is still close enough to the center of things, Yosemite West is where you want to be. It is a short and scenic ride from the cottage to the valley. Although it seems that a fair number of visitors try to see Yosemite in just a day or two, I would not recommend this. It is simply not enough time. At best, you will get to see a few key attractions in the valley and perhaps Mariposa Grove (if you take the tram through it). However, this is a very large national park, and some of the most beautiful places are a two-three hour drive at higher altitudes. One of the highlights for us was a two-hour horseback ride in the Tuolumne Meadows section of the park, followed by an afternoon just relaxing on the beach at nearby Tenaya Lake. That whole day was really unforgettable. Another favorite was the hike up Sentinel Dome. It is a very easy hike (it had to be because I'm not much of a hiker) with big rewards in terms of the view from the top. Thanks to Jeff and Melissa for a wonderful time.

Excellent little hideaway - we loved our stay here

  • 5 of 5
This little hideaway was a fantastic place to stay. The house is very well furnished and decorated with all the amenities you could wish for. Whilst we were in Yosemite, the main village area was extremely busy with tourists so it was simply wonderful to get in the car, drive about 35 minutes and have complete peace and quiet sitting on the hideaways wonderful balcony and enjoying a BBQ. Jeff and Melissa were really great to deal with. It is not easy to arrange a road trip from England we felt very lucky to have discovered this place. If only it were not so far away we would definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Good base for park

  • 4 of 5
Great place to use as a jumping off spot for Yosemite, it is in the park and literally only 30 minutes to valley flow. About 2 miles to Glacier point road. Made for two, more means moving furniture to fit areobeds. 50 steps down to get to house, and that means 50 steps up to get to car.

What a wonderful place. Clean, comfortable, great views. Away from the crowds but close to everything you want to see. Weather in May was just right, cold in am warming in the afternoons then cold again in the evenings. Even had a dusting of snow one morning, being from Fl. this was a wonderful trip.
