This property will exceed the expectations of the most fastidious traveller. Charles the host has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Yosemite and its surrounds. His suggestion to view the sunset at Glacier Point was surely inspirational. Afterwards lounge in the spa whilst looking up at the Milky Way and sink a cold beer. It couldn't get any better.
The cottage is perfect, it is very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. I'm glad we stayed away from the park as it was so lovely to come back in the evening and enjoy the peace and quiet and just watch the stars. The advice from the owners was truely invaluable and really made our days in Yosemite so memorable. We cannot recommend this cottage enough and would love to go back.
This was a great cottage. It's well equipped, and feels 'away from it all' without being remote. Charles, the owner, was really helpful, with a great hint for sunset in the Park. Our stay was for 3 nights but we'd happily have stayed longer. The master suite is huge, with a very comfy bed, and the hot tub outside is just the place to relax. A great find, and highly recommended
This is a very clean and well appointed cottage away from the crowds. It was a little bit of a drive, but well worth it! Very peaceful and quiet. The hot tub was truly heavenly after a long day of hiking. Sitting in the hot tub under the stars was amazing and so relaxing. Our family of 4 enjoyed being able to spread out in the house instead of being jammed in a hotel. The kitchen had everything you need to cook, and the town of Mariposa is a short drive away if you'd rather go out to eat. Charles was the perfect host and had many recommendations and was so pleasant to work with. We definitely recommend staying at Yosemite Country Cottage! :)
This is a lovely, well cared for home. It is quiet, the beds are comfortable, the hot tub felt really good at the end of a day of hiking. It's a bit of a drive into the park, but it only seemed long the first day - after that it was just part of our journey. The house isn't specifically located amidst great scenery - but it doesn't seem to matter - it is placid and relaxing. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.
We enjoyed the location of the cottage as it provided a nice country atmosphere but with excellent highway access to Yosemite. It was refreshing to leave the vacation crowds in Yosemite to the solitude and open space surrounding the cottage. The cottage itself provided great accommodations and was in sparkling clean condition. The owners took extra time to review the highlights of Yosemite NP and point out many of the best areas to visit. We highly recommend this property for your next visit to the Yosemite area.
