Fish Camp house description

Located above Highway 41 and just minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance, our comfortable, family-friendly modern mountain home offers a convenient yet private retreat with stunning mountain views, luxurious clean living spaces, and even the nostalgic sounds of the nearby Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad.

This is not a rustic cabin! Our 2300 square-foot, 3 bedroom home offers you all the modern comforts and open spaces you'll need for that unforgettable trip to the Yosemite area with your extended family or friends.

Use the 'Visit our Website' link below to find more helpful information, more pictures, and details on our rates and policies. You'll find our availability calendar is also there too for your vacation planning convenience. It's best to contact us by email but you can also call and leave a message if you prefer. When checking our calendar remember that we normally need a full day between groups in order to prepare the house. Happy planning!


Refreshing Mountain Climate: Our unique home overlooks the upper reaches of the Lewis Creek watershed at an elevation of nearly 5000 feet. In the summer, the climate here ranges from comfortable daytime highs that average in the upper 70's (~25 degrees Celsius), to cool evenings with average lows in the low 50's (~10 degrees Celsius).

At this elevation the sun is intense all year round. There is nearly always a gentle breeze blowing during the day. There is very little or no rain during the summer months so humidity levels are very low and swimsuits air-dry quickly. Spring and early fall are the seasons of dynamic color and wetter weather. Late fall, winter and early spring are quiet seasons of incredible beauty. Along with this beauty comes the possibility of ice and snow on mountain roads and on our steep driveway.

Privacy and Convenience: Our prime location puts you away from the crowds, yet close to everything Yosemite has to offer. The southern entrance to Yosemite is less than four miles up the road. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to call home. There is so much do to here that you could easily fill your day with excitement without ever entering the park itself!

                            Wow! this cabin was amazing! Very open floor plan and room for everyone. the kitchen was great for cooking big evening meals and there was plenty of space for everyone to hang out together and also plenty of room for people to get away when they wanted quiet. The view every day was spectacular. there is a great trail right behind the house to go for hikes or for a trail run and good area to cook marshmallows. the kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked and left us wanting for nothing. We visited Yosemite each day we were there and took in the giant sequoia's and beautiful Yosemite valley, what a treasure. Definitely recommend for families big and small.

                            My extended family stayed at the retreat for Thanksgiving 2013. 8 of us including our 2 year old. We were completely, utterly blown away by the location, the house, and the commitment that has been put into the rental. The location itself is breathtaking. At the top of a hill, tremendous view to the north and (especially) the south from the park, with a wonderful little firepit area and even a private trail all on site. The driveway is an adventure but the owners are 100% up front about that. The house is great, too. 4 rooms (1 is through another), 4.5 bathrooms so there is no shortage of facilities. There are amenities everywhere. Under the sink in one room, for instance, we had a selection of 5 shampoos and 3 body washes. is it a hotel? no. Is it set up very close to one? Yes. And the owners are great. I must have sent 20 questions, with about 10 in the last week before going. First time renter. They answered all of them really fast. They even answered one on Thanksgiving! highly recommended. Cannot recommend enough.

                            My family held Sisters Reunion 2013 at this beautiful cabin. The house kitchen was fantastically equipped and the pantry held more than a sufficient number of spices, teas, coffees and condiments that it made cooking all our meals a breeze. There were many lists and brochures for the area attractions. Yosemite was technically closed due to government shutdown but we were able to drive through the park--an easy five minutes away from the South Entrance. We took advantage of the picnic table in the back for sunny lunches and enjoyed sitting among the mining and logging equipment which artfully decorated the back of the house. I wish we would have been able to spend more time swinging on the front porch and soaking in the amazingly quiet and stunning views. This was our best VRBO rental experience ever.

                            This is an excellent holiday home. The setting is magical - panoramic views of the mountains and forest from inside and from the decks. It's even better than the description on the website! It's in a quiet location (although you can hear the sugar pine railroad whistling) and very convenient for Yosemite Park. The house is very spacious with a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is very well equipped; lots of big pans, casserole dishes etc.. There is also a good supply of the basics such as salt, herbs and spices, dishwasher soap and so on. We stayed for a week and went into Yosemite most days to hike, but we also explored some trails nearby and Bass lake. All worth doing. Most of the time we cooked at the house, but we did go to 'Narrow Guage Inn' (walking distance) which was excellent. All-in-all we had a very very good time! I would recommend the house to friends and family. Pat, John and Adele from the UK and Barbara from Arizona.

                            We really enjoyed our stay at Logger's Retreat. It was a great home to come back to after spending time hiking in Yosemite. Very peaceful,clean and the views were amazing. It was close to the south gate of the national park, Mariposa Grove, Glacier point and Yosemite valley and we did not have to queue very long to get into the park. We also spent a day at Bass lake, which was close by. Staying at Logger's retreat was the highlight of our three week trip around California. We would definitely return.

                            What a house! We brought our food and clothing and almost everything else was here! We loved staying here. Plenty of room for 3 adults and 6 kids. The setup was perfect. They even had a crib available for our our littlest ones. We enjoyed many fun fill days in the valley, and this was the perfect place to come home to, eat dinner, decompress, and get ready to do it all again the next day. The views and amenities of this home are top notch. We enjoyed the hot tub, the fire pit, the eat on deck and the hiking trails behind the house. If you're willing to drive an hour in to Yosemite Valley (only 10 minutes to Mariposa Grove), then this is place for you, you won't regret it!

                            Wow! That's the only word that comes close, this is such a beautiful house in a spectacular setting. The views were so beautiful to wake up to each Morning. It was clean and close to everything. We spent an amazing week in Yosemite and each day our two kids could not wait to come back here. They both enjoyed having there own world downstairs. After first spending time in San Francisco it was so nice to come here to the next stage of our vacation, and relax and cook our own meals. There isn't anything you need but your clothes and a market to go buy your food. EVERYTHING is provided for you. The owners thought of everything and were super nice to deal with. I hope we get the chance to come back here some day again, but we will certainly spread the word to others. A big thank you David and Suzanne.
