Why Betsy and Pete chose Yosemite Area

Imagine this. Living in a forest of trees; surrounded by Yosemite National Park. Quiet, uncrowded, peaceful. Look above at night and explore the stars of the Milky Way stretched before you in the darkening sky. This is what makes Yosemite West a very special place to stay inside the gates of the Park.

What makes this house unique

Pine Arbor Retreat has a spacious living room in a quiet setting with forest views. Sit back in front of a wood burning fire place with book in hand. Cozy! Out on the deck, drink in hand, and watch the frolicking squirrels and mischievous jays as the setting sun reddens the skies. Rest comfortably at night as you dream of the days adventures.

Beautiful house in the middle of the forest!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all our expectations! It's really big and has all the luxury you need. The location is perfect if you want to explore Yosemite NP. The hosts are very friendly and give you lots of information. When there is a problem (we had an empty battery) they help you right a way. I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful house, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We rent this house to spent the school winter break in the snow with a group of friends and the kids. The kitchen is well equipped (nice set of chopping knives), the living room is fantastic for everyone to hang out and still not feel claustrophobic. The house's backyard has an awesome sliding hill, with a small creek, logs, and it's a lot of fun for kids and adults.

We found the house warm and toasty upon our arrival, so thank you for that!

I would recommend this house to a friend and will definitely come back.

The perfect place to stay in Yosemite!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed at many vacation homes through VRBO, and Pine Arbor is definitely tops all the rest! If you're going to stay in Yosemite for the winter or summer, Pine Arbor has everything you could hope for in a rental. The owners went above and beyond to make sure that my family was comfortable and safe as we encountered a winter snow storm that dumped quite a bit of snow all over Yosemite. Just a very short drive from Pine Arbor brings you to Badger Pass, and the Valley is also very close. Just bring your food and firewood and the fabulous owners supply all the rest. I hope to return again to this beautiful retreat!

Perfect location & tons of space. Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here for a few days to enjoy winter in Yosemite. Location couldn't be much better - about a 20-30 min drive from Yosemite Valley. The house had a ton of space to spread out. Breakfast nook and formal dining room as well. Bedrooms were all good size with a great master suite. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to enjoy home-cooked meals instead of paying high prices at places in the Valley. Would definitely recommend the Pine Arbor Retreat for families or a few couples. You will not be disapppionted. Thanks Betsy & Pete!!

Spacious, clean, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families of 4 each (4 adults, 4 children) and this house accommodated us perfectly! The house is very spacious and in tip-top condition. We enjoyed the large windows and the feeling of being high up in the trees! The drive to the valley floor is not long at all, maybe 20-25 minutes and that was awesome. The house is maybe 5 minutes from the Glacier Point turn-off. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, pots, bowls etc... for preparing meals. We cooked every night except Thanksgiving, but we pre-planned our meals and brought all of our food from home as we learned the closest large market is about 1 hour away. This actually worked out nicely because once we arrived and unpacked we didn't have the extra headache of going back out to shop for groceries. I've decided to do all of our vacations this way from now on if possible. We did learn that we needed to bring our own firewood, which was no problem. It was nice having a washer and dryer in the house, as well as a dining room table that comfortably sat all of us. The owners also have these wonderful binders and books with clear information about hikes and other things to do while visiting Yosemite. I would definitely stay in this house again -so lovely and spacious, we felt right at home!
