Yosemite West is inside Yosemite National Park. It is only a twenty minute drive from El Capitan and Yosemite Village, and all the main attractions of Yosemite National Park. This is also the closest lodging for Badger Pass Ski Area, with downhill and nordic skiing--only eight miles away from your door.

This Yosemite West home is located just a mile from the Glacier Point Road, so you are very close to Taft Point and Glacier Point, the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley.

The Hummingbird Raven House is a newly renovated and furnished home, with a spacious deck high in the trees.

Please note that our house has a spiral staircase which may be difficult for elderly folks.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and a half bath. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, with a queen size bed and four bunks. All beds have down comforters and pillows. A convertible sofa-bed in the office sleeps 1 to 2 more guests. Note: we cannot accommodate more than 10 guests at a time. We also have a 2 night minimum.

This house is equipped with a full kitchen, a large dining table and deck dining furniture.

There are two separate entrances for the lower and upper floors. Please be aware, there are a few steps leading to all entries to this home.

Please also be aware that, like most homes in Yosemite West Hummingbird Raven House does not have air conditioning.

We also have another rental house in Yosemite West, Hummingbird Pines, which sleeps 10. VRBO Listing #470093

About Michelle and Peter

Peter and Michelle

We have visited and loved Yosemite for many years, and are thrilled to have a vacation rental in the park.

We love Yosemite for hiking, climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing and spending time in nature. Please feel free to email us with questions!

Michelle and Peter purchased this house in 2010

Why Michelle and Peter chose Yosemite Area

Hummingbird Raven is in the park, but outside the bustle of Yosemite Valley so it is quiet and peaceful. This house is ideal for groups of family and friends who want a nice house to come back to after a long day of adventure

We love Yosemite for hiking, climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing and spending time in nature.

What makes this house unique

Yosemite West is inside the Park boundaries, so it's a perfect location to enjoy Yosemite (20 minutes to Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point, and close to various trailheads). It has the advantage of being very close to the Badger Pass ski area, and being at a higher elevation than the Valley, which keeps the temperatures more comfortable in the summer months.

Good Value

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five was extremly happy with the hummingbird raven house. We thoroughly enjoyed the large deck and the grill. The property is very close to several of the park's iconic destinations. It is a very comfortable house and the kitchen was well equiped. The owners were responsive to our emails. All in all a very pleasent experience.

Privacy, roomy, well appointed kitchen for cooking, wonderful deck to enjoy coffee or a meal!

  • 5 of 5

A few basic maintenance items should be addressed (basic light bulb replacement; window cranks broken; dusty shades & fans; trash removal bin access) but OVERALL extremely "CHARMING" and "COMFORTABLE" for a great journey in Yosemite National Park! Don't miss out on hiking Taft Point/Fissures and

Sentinel Dome (14 miles from the house) - short hikes with incredible vistas and also drive the two extra miles to Glacier Point! Yosemite Village is about a 20 minute drive for popular trailheads and have pizza at Denigan's " Loft" at the end of the day!! We also enjoyed hiking at Hetch Hetchy again as the waterfalls were incredible as was the Vernal/Nevada Falls trail (Mist Trail). We hope to stay at the Hummingbird Raven House again in the future - thank you!!

Cozy Cabin in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here mid-March. There was a big storm in the forecast, and we made it in just as the snow started falling. By the next morning, we had eight inches of snow; it was absolutely beautiful! For those considering this home during the winter - drive slowly and carry chains. We didn't have any problems, and the park was so beautiful with all the snow. No crowds, the waterfalls were flowing more heavily than I've ever seen... It's a great time to go.

Location Can't be Beat!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family; very tidy when we arrived and well equipped for all of your cooking and living needs. The proximity to Badger Pass for winter fun can't be beat! Such a blessing to be so close to the ski resort to beat the crowds! The Valley is just breath-taking during the winter season; a must visit time of year. We are looking forward to our next stay at Hummingbird Raven house!
