About Michelle

I was raised in Yosemite N.P. Our home is one of the first homes ever built in Yosemite West. My parents ran it as a former B&B and we have had people from all over the world stay w/ us. I love sharing our home w/ people and families.

Michelle purchased this house in 1973

Why Michelle chose Yosemite National Park

It is one of the largest homes inside Yosemite National Park. It is centrally located and has a lot of space for families and friends to gather and there is plenty of parking.

What makes this house unique

It is a one of a kind home w/ a sunken game room and Saloon. We are the only home in Yosemite West that owns all 7 lots that surround it, giving it more privacy.

On one of the lots we have a outdoor campfire ring. It is like your camping since it is set away from the home and you can view the stars and make s'mores and tell stories around the fire. Our kitchen table can sit up to 16 people and is the heart of the home to gather families and friends around.

Awesome house for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything we needed for a long weekend with friends. We loved having big meals in the spacious kitchen, relaxing with a drink in the bar while playing pool, and having some quiet time in the backyard.

Will definitely look to rent this house again.

Amazing Home for Everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this place! It is enormous and can fit a big group with no problems. Has plenty of bathrooms, beds, and a HUGE kitchen and table! (our favorite part!)

Very clean and has all the amenities. No need to worry about bringing anything. There is a wonderful hammock to rest in after a busy day in the valley, and a large campfire setting for a star filled evening!

I highly recommend you stay here, you will love it as much as we do!!

Amazing house, amazing experience.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 2 night with 8 people. Nothing bad to say! Location is great, right in the middle of the park. Everything was very well made when we got there (beds, everything was neat), and everything was very clear. Notes were left to let us know exactly how to work the TV and such, and the kitchen has all the utensils one could need. All the appliances worked very well. Really, the little things is what made this house most enjoyable; the fire pit in the backyard, the amazing decorations, the atmosphere, the pool room, the air fresheners, everything was beautiful. Would definitely 100% recommend.

Spacious and Serene

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a spacious and full of character house this is the one for you! It's a perfect house for a couple of families. It's fully stocked with board games for kids and families and cassette tapes of charming old movies that will make you feel nostalgic. Though the house is spacious it felt perfectly cozy, great to come back to after a long days worth of hiking.

There's also an amazing bar area which makes you feel as if you're part of a movie. The kitchen area is lovely and roomy and the back lot outside the house is wonderfully serene- surrounded by Yosemite's signature pine trees. Overall it's a great place to stay in and you'll be sure to create amazing memories!

Michelle is very prompt and very helpful in answering any of our questions. We would love to come back and stay in this house again.
