Relax and enjoy a newly constructed retreat approximately 30 minutes inside the southern gate of Yosemite National Park, and close to many of the Park’s attractions. The house is located in Yosemite West, approximately 15 miles (a 30-40 minute drive) from three of the must-see destinations in the park: Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. No other location is as close to all three locations. You can stay in Yosemite Valley, but you will be a full hour or more from Glacier Point or the Mariposa Grove. You can stay in Wawona near the Mariposa Grove, but you will be a full hour or more from Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point.
In the winter, things get even better. Yosemite West is also closest lodging to the skiing and snowshoeing Badger Pass Ski Area, a fantastic family-friendly ski resort perfect for learning to ski. Badger Pass is also the starting point for the most popular ski and snowshoe outings in the park and the location of the daily ranger-led snowshoe walks.
This one bedroom, one bath vacation rental is perfect for 2 people, but has space to sleep up to four, with one queen bed and a twin daybed and trundle in a nook just off the main living room. Cooking is a pleasure in a full kitchen with granite counter-tops, knotty alder cabinets, and new stainless steel appliances. New for 2014, we have added a fireplace so you can cozy up with a fire and a movie on the 47″ flat-screen television after a day of skiing (note: there is no TV reception, but we have a DVD player and a large collection of movies available plus a couple videos showcasing the many things that Yosemite has to offer). In warmer weather, you might prefer to grill on the patio with the convenient propane grill.
