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.

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
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.
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.
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.
Our two families of 4 had a wonderful time at Pine Arbor Retreat. The house was spacious and clean, and the surrounding area is beautiful. It's a 20-30 minute drive to Badger Pass and Yosemite Valley. Because Yosemite West is at a higher elevation, there is always more snow there in the winter than in the Valley or Wawona. Perfect because the kids love playing in the snow! Owners were always very responsive to my inquiries. We highly recommend it!
Great experience. The location is inside of Yosemite and it is totally worth it. The home has a large deck and a gas grill. We were able to grill every night after a long day of hiking. The hosts are very interested in making sure that you have a well-planned trip so that you can see the sights and plan out a reasonable day. There is plenty of tourist information inside of the house. We even watched some of their Yosemite DVDs that they had in the house. That was a nice touch! You can't go wrong with this house!
The cabin is nice with a good kitchen. It is located in Yosemite West, which means about a 40 min drive into Yosemite Valley. If you plan on enjoying the park (I was here Sept 2016), then you really will only be eating breakfast, maybe dinner and sleeping here. The air conditioning works well. It is dead quiet in the mornings.
The only problem was that the place was dirty. Someone needs to come in and do a thorough cleaning of the place. Washing towels, linens and wiping the countertops isn't enough. The sofa and chair covers are filthy and should just be tossed. We didn't feel comfortable sitting on them and covered all the furniture with sheets to sit on them. The bathroom and kitchen floors need to be mopped. I know everyone has different standards of cleanliness, but when you walk around the house with bare feet and then your feet are dirty 1 hour later, the floors are dirty.
I know the purpose of coming here is to disconnect, but there is absolutely no cell of wifi service at this place. There is no entertainment except for dvd's and a puzzle. For the price you paying, these owners need to suck it up and get a dish to provide wifi service to their guests.
Thank you for letting us stay. Yosemite is an incredible place. Glacier point is near the house and that area is worth a day or two of exploration.
The cabin is located in a quiet neighborhood and in a peaceful setting. It is dated and in need of a deep cleaning, but was fine for my group of 5 men who were hiking and climbing in Yosemite. I would not advise bring a wife or significant other. Do not plan on doing any involved cooking because of a lack of enough pots and pans. It would be a bit cramped for a larger group because there is only one shower/bath and it is on the top floor. The owners were easy to work with and their instructions were clear and precise.
Very easy house to be in as a guest. Great location and very accessible to the park. Thanks for allowing us to stay; we had a great time.
There is so much to do in Yosemite; please contact us for information on hiking, sight seeing and other activities.
