About Jeff Hornacek

A Mechanical Engineer in the Texas oil industry, I moved to Silicon Valley in the 80s to ride the computer wave. It was then that I first experienced Yosemite National Park. With frequent visits over the next 2 decades competing with my other love, skydiving, I finally sold my parachute, committed to Yosemite and started living at Yosemite Refuge in the early 2000s. While doing countless hikes all over the park, I also started perfecting my backpacking gear, leading to my co-founding a backpacking gear company from this house called Trail Designs. I hope you find as much happiness here as I have. Between myself and my neighbors Jeff and Melissa who I've asked to help with your stay, we'll work to ensure you have everything you need.

Jeff Hornacek purchased this house in 2002

Why Jeff Hornacek chose Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is quite simply the most breathtaking place on earth. Covering an area the size of Rhode Island, you will find some of the largest waterfalls in North America, the most spectacular granite monoliths in the world, Giant Sequoias which can't be found anywhere else on earth, and the list just goes on and on. With over 750 miles of trails, the opportunity to see these sites in addition to extensive wildlife (bear, deer, marmots, coyote, etc) is unparalleled. The question isn't why live in Yosemite, it's why wouldn't you live here!

What makes this house unique

Given the huge size of Yosemite, and the countless things to see and do, you want to be in the middle of it all when you wake up in the morning. Starting your day off fighting through traffic, sitting in line at the entrance station, and driving half the day from a gateway city just to get started wastes precious time and energy. Yosemite Refuge is in Yosemite West.....right in the middle of the most popular sites.....whether it's the waterfalls and huge granite of Yosemite Valley to the north, the Giant Sequoias of Mariposa Grove to the south, or the breathtaking views from Glacier Point to the east, you're perfectly positioned to explore them all. Add to it the unparalleled seclusion and privacy found at Yosemite Refuge allows you to truly get away from it all and recharge. The 2 car garage has easy access from the street, leading to 55 steps meandering down the hillside to Yosemite Refuge's private setting, providing comfortable seclusion from the rest of the community. Also, located at 6000' elevation, it's cooler than the low lying towns and valley.

Cosy and well equipped house

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five really enjoyed staying at Yosemite Refuge. Location was perfect and 30 mins max to valley floor and Mariposa Grove. The house was warm, cosy and all details considerately provided for including coffee, sugar, oil, seasonings and good selection of videos and a few games. Very Comfy beds and bath amenities. Kitchen was well equipped and had all utensils needed including a bottle of wine to welcome us upon arrival. Would highly recommend, just be forewarned about the steep stairs leading to the house, it was quite a feat getting our luggages down and up especially when it was rainy and wet during our arrival. Also spare futon in second bedroom is suitable for a small child - no taller. Owners were prompt in communication and easy to deal with and obliging. Thank you!

Great cabin in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Yosemite Refuge! Great accommodations and very comfortable. I would make 2 recommendations for future guests. The kitchen was nicely appointed but would love to see an extra 8-10 in. skillet. Also, extra bed pillow options on the soft/fluffy side would be great.
Having the notebook that the owner provided was a great help with all the kitchen and electronic equipment. We also appreciated the hiking suggestions, especially the short cut to Sentinel Dome. We also hiked the Panorama Trail which was spectacular. We would definitely rent this property again.

Fun place!

  • 5 of 5
Yosemite is incredible and this great cabin in right in the middle of the action. We especially enjoyed the hiking and returning to popcorn and movies. We ate at the Lodges most of the time but the kitchen had everything we needed. We can happily recommend Yosemite Refuge.

Perfect location for Yosemite day trips

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 4 was so happy each evening to have this cabin to return to after long days of hiking. It was close enough to make the commute into the valley and Glacier point reasonable. The unit was very well appointed with all the supplies we needed to make great dinners (especially the grill) and comfortable for relaxing evenings. We highly recommend this property.

Wonderful Weekend in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
This home was beyond our expectations. Absolutely beautiful, perfect location inside the park and plenty of space. The home was decorated so nicely, the owners did a fantastic job. We are so happy with the choice we made and will definitely try to stay again in the future when we return to Yosemite. The house had all information on the park, what to do, where to go, and DVDs from inside the park. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in Yosemite. Such a great experience, I can not thank the owners enough!
