Great Home! 3 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6) 2.5 Acres - Plenty of room to run.
Just 25 miles from the northern entrance into Yosemite National Park, (an hour's drive to Yosemite valley) you will find yourself in a fully furnished home that is the perfect get away. It has an unobstructed view of a lovely 100 acre meadow and is in Stanislaus National forest. If you are looking for solitude, sunshiny days and starlet nights in the pines then you will love this home. At 3200 feet we’re just above the snow mark but below the blizzard line. We’re just ½ mile from the nearest grocery store or gas station and 10 minutes (8 miles) from Highway 120.
Our vacation property can accommodate 6+ comfortably. It has three bedrooms; master bedroom has a king size adjustable bed and a private full-bath. The two smaller bedrooms have queen beds and share a full-bath. Children or adventurous at heart could sleep on queen size air beds in a nicely finished garage area in the summer. (see pictures)
There is easy access to the house through the garage and front door. There is a deck across the back of the house and the setting is very private. There is access to internet and it has dish TV.
The large kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs and has granite throughout. It includes a large Island for cooking or eating. There is a gas BBQ grill in the back yard.
The hot tub is fabulous for relaxing anytime but especially under the stars at night. It has therapy jets for those tired muscles after a long day of sightseeing or hiking.

About Doug Dalton
Lori and I met while we were young and only 17 while attending college up in Idaho. Doug retired and we purchased this home in 2012 as our vacation dream home. We love it so much that we enjoy staying here whenever we can. The mountains are beautiful and it is very peaceful here. Lori and I have 5 children and 18 grand children with one on the way. We enjoy camping, traveling, but mostly just doing work around our homes. and visiting with friends.
Doug Dalton purchased this House in 2012

The house is beautiful and family friendly
The house was very big and clean. The house was very well equipped from the kitchen all the way to the restrooms. The location is great for good for visiting Yosemite National Park. The view and location of the house was great and relaxing. In short words the house was perfect and the best part of the house was the camp fire outside.
Thank you so much Doug your home is beautiful and we had such a great time there. Everything was perfect thank you for the great hospitality we will definitely recommend your home to friends, family or anyone visiting Yosemite national park.
luxurious and close to Yosemite
We stayed in Doug and Lori's home for a week during our trip to Yosemite and found that it was the most comfortable place we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. All the amenities provided made the place feel like home. The drive to the valley is roughly an hour. The beds were all comfortable, there were 4 of us and there were plenty of space. The house was extremely clean, organized, and well cared for. We enjoyed grilling out in the yard and made several delicious meals that way. The wifi was fast considering how far away we were from everything. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Doug and Lori but they left a very detailed instruction book with all the information we needed and even recommendations of things to do. We followed their tip to go to Rainbow Pool and so glad that we did. We would stay here again in a heartbeat when we go back to Yosemite.
Peaceful quiet setting not too far from Yosemite
Quiet and peaceful. Great views of the stars at night. House is very well suited for families of various ages both young and not so young.
Wonderful Place to stay for Yosemite Visit
This place is very well done and has everything you need. The Owners are very helpful and give you lots of extra information to help make your stay better. The house has ample room, the beds are comfortable. The house was clean and the outside of the house is GREAT. Lots of things to do to keep everyone busy and having fun. We loved this place. The only downside is the drive to Yosemite is a bit further than I would like. But, still, this place is a great base. I have stayed in a lot of VRBO homes, this one is up there with the best.
Better than home
Our family stay at Doug's home was perfect. The amenities were soul refreshing. We enjoyed gathering groceries at the local store and cooking in the well supplied kitchen. Every bed was comfortable and playing games in the family room fit all five of us comfortably. While we didn't use the hot tub that was only because we preferred the campfire stories and stars. Sitting out on the swing was a great time to reflect on our hikes in Yosemite...my daughter actually fell asleep on the swing it was so peaceful. Thanks Doug for a great relaxing and comfortable retreat.
