Yosemite National Park house description

10% off 5 nights or more booked! Save $100. per night in the off season November through March (Holidays excluded). Welcome to Yosemite's best kept secret for two. Our reviews are outstanding!
Custom built two story home. Clean and well maintained cabin with a beautiful wood interior and a two person soaking tub. Located in Foresta, inside Yosemite National Park and only 10 minutes from Yosemite Valley.

Relax and enjoy life at Clouds Rest Cabin. The perfect mountain retreat, located inside Yosemite National Park and minutes away from Yosemite Valley. If you are looking for a romantic getaway or want to take advantage of Yosemite’s natural beauty and outdoor adventure opportunities.

Clouds Rest has a quiet ridge top location, with sweeping views of El Capitan, Half Dome and the surrounding mountains. Foresta is centrally located for flyfishing the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers, day hiking to lakes and streams or mountain biking out the front door to miles of accessible USFS roads. If that seems too overwhelming, then relax on the front deck, bird watch, stargaze or watch the moon rise over El Capitan.

We use environmentally friendly cleaning and laundry products. We are sensitive to our guests 'no fragrance' requests.
Sleeps three comfortably.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We have lived and worked in Yosemite National Park since 1979 and have been residents of Foresta since 1981. In 1990 we purchased property in Foresta and built our home. In 2003 we bought another lot and built the rental home we now offer to our guests. We live minutes away and are available to assist our guests. We are avid hiker's and know the area well. Mark has 30 years of flyfishing experience, and he can direct you to the best catch and release areas and professional flyfishing guides in the park.

                  Why the Owner Chose Yosemite National Park:
                  Foresta is centrally located in Yosemite. It has the closest private homes to Yosemite Valley. The Merced and Tuolumne Groves of Giant Sequoia's parking area's are within 20 minutes drive time from the cabin. The Merced river, with trophy flyfishing, is also close by.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Clouds Rest Cabin is a unique rental property located inside Yosemite National Park. It's location is close to Yosemite Valley and the Tioga Road corridor (Tuolumne Meadows and Sequoia Groves). We built this cabin so that people from all over the world can discover and fall in love with Yosemite National Park as we have. Clouds Rest Cabin is a little treasure inside Yosemite. When you see other visitors trudging off to their cramped, stuffy, little hotel rooms after a day of hiking and exploring the park......reward yourself that you have Clouds Rest Cabin to come back to. Enjoy it's spiritual relaxation and peaceful atmosphere.
