This elegant 1800 square foot duplex home is the lower level of our duplex, 'Enchanted Forest'. The home is beautifully furnished and decorated featuring three bedrooms, each with a king size bed and private bathroom! Two of the bedrooms have gas burning fireplaces. There's also a pool table, HD satellite TV with 200 channels, Ipod stereo docking station, wet bar and a queen size sofa sleeper. French doors open up to a large covered deck with a hot tub, barbecue, and patio seating. Adjoining the living room is your dining area and fully equipped kitchen. 'Lower Enchanted Forest' is truly one of our finest accommodations and can be rented either by itself or in conjunction with 'Upper Enchanted Forest' sleeping an additional eight persons for an even larger group or family gathering.
We want your stay in Lower Enchanted Forest to be as comfortable as possible while staying in your 'home away from home', that's why we include so many wonderful amenities such as all your linens, towels, dishes, pots and pans, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, dish soap, hand soap, laundry soap, foil, plastic wrap, sandwich size zip lock baggies, trash bags, a full selection of spices, coffee, tea, sugars, hot chocolate and of course a blow dryer in each bathroom. Propane is provided for the barbecue. Don't forget your luggage, groceries, shampoo & conditioner! Now you are all set for your fabulous vacation:)
Yosemite West is the perfect location for your mountain getaway. We are centrally located inside the gates of Yosemite National Park. Just 30 minutes south of the valley floor, one mile from Glacier Point road and just 6 miles from Badger Pass ski area and 30 minutes (15 miles) from Glacier Point. Even though it's very convenient to most areas of the park, this is still a very remote community and you are likely to see wild animals such as coyotes, deer and maybe even an occasional bear looking for a free meal (they're not dangerous, by the way, but please do NOT feed them!).
You can hike the nearby nature trails or ski at Badger Pass; the cross-country skiing along Glacier Point Road and the trails to the cliffs are spectacular in the extreme! And they are all a short 20 minutes from your front door, even in winter.
No matter how you spend your vacation, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends.

We couldn't of been happier!
Dear Holly, We wish to thank you for the lovely time we had in the Enchanted Forest! We enjoyed many activities and came home to a nice hot tub and a home cooked meal. The accommodations suited us all perfectly and we couldn't be any happier! Should we get back to this neck of the woods again, we'll be sure to stay with you again! Our thanks! Cathleen Sullivan & Family

Loved our stay in Lower Enchanted Forest!
I wanted to write and tell you how much we loved our stay at Enchanted Forest. It was the perfect location with in the Park. Easy to find. Perfect for our group of six, everything was just as we expected from the site we booked on. We enjoyed the pool table, the hot tub, cooking on the deck and just having a wonderful home to come back to after a long day out enjoying the amazing sites of Yosemite. Thanks for all your help. I would highly recommend your property to anyone I know looking for accommodations in the Park in the future.

"Terrific place to stay!"
We would highly recommend this home as a place to stay. It had just about everything we needed. We are a family of five and the three rooms and huge beds made for great sleeping arrangements. Plus, with three girls the three bathrooms was am added plus! We food shopped on our drive in and packed lunches for our hikes and cooked dinners in watching the sunset. Why stay anywhere else! Our only disappointment was that we were told that there was Internet but it was with a disc and dial up and none of our devices had cd/ DVD drive. So, we lived disconnected for a bit.

Great Family Vacation Spot
Great Family Vacation Spot
We found this property after looking long and hard for the perfect place to stay while at Yosemite. This one did not disappoint. It is located about midway between Yosemite Valley and the Giant Sequoyah and really close to the Glacier Point with the spectacular views over looking the Valley and Half Dome. The kitchen was great for preparing our meals and sitting in the Hot Tub after our really long hikes was great. I have learned over the years that staying in properties like this are so much more rewarding for family trips that I doubt we will ever to back to Hotels. We played lots of pool and relaxed on the deck with morning coffee. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to really experience Yosemite. I can definitely see returning to this place in the future.

This property provided a wonderful base for us to explore Yosemite National Park. The property is stocked with all the equipment you need - just bring your food and move in. Clean and spacions (family of 5), we had plenty of room and loved the spa outside and also the pool table for evening entertainment. Thanks Holly, for making the reservation process so easy, and for your excellent communication throughout.

"Awesome place right in the park"
This is a fantastic house with all of the amenities. The house has 3 big bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. We were able to have our kids sleep in the room with us. It has a nice living room with a wet bar, and fireplace, a pool table and the best part was taking a hot tub after hiking to Half Dome. It's only 25 minutes to the trail to Vernal Falls and only a 15 minute drive to Glacier point. It's in the perfect location! We had a great stay and looking forward to going back.

Our Yosemite Vacation
Our Yosemite Vacation
We had been an avid Yosemite visitors. The last 2 years, we had been wanting to go and visit our favorite national park but things are tough lately. Before the new year, a relative from Guatemala visited us for the holidays. We thought that if we cannot take her to any wonderful places in California, we can take her to Yosemite National park and that will be the one and only highlight of her time with us. And what a highlight it was. We found the property in VRBO lisitngs and inquired about availability. The property owner was very prompt to respond to all our questions. We arranged for a 4 night stay in lower Yosemite enchanted forest cabins. We all enjoyed the amenities this property have to offer. Our 6 year old still rave about the pool table and our 12 year old could not forget the fireplace that her "Tia Norma" start the fire every single night. The property is clean, well organized and very easy to navigate. The people that manage and maintains the place are nice and prompt to assist on a moments notice. The owner, who happened to be in the area even dropped by to pay us a visit to make sure everything is okay. At best, this property gave our family a lasting and very memorable experience of our visit to Yosemite. We are already making plans to come back and stay at the enchanted forest again. Thank you for the wonderful accomodation. Joey Tamayo

Lower Enchanted Forest
Lower Enchanted Northern CA Review Submitted January 25, 2012 Date of Stay January 20, 2012 Lower Enchanted forest is a great house, really clean, and great location! I can only comment on one bedrooms since my husband and I rented it as a suite which gives you access to one large bedroom with a large king bed, a bathroom right next to the bedroom, the bathroom has two entrances one that leads directly into the bedroom and one that leads directly into the living area, a wet bar, a really nice large kitchen with everything you could possibly need, a living room with a nice size TV with Direct TV and a DVD player with DVD'S which was nice, and a dining room with a nice size dining table, and a large pool table near the front entrance with plenty of bar stools to go with it so there plenty of room to sit around the pool table and hang out.There is also a washer and dryer in a closet next to the bathroom,and a nice little wet bar to chill your wine or beer! I loved the house it was really clean, great location, short drive to the valley, quiet, and absolute privacy. The hot tub on the outdoor deck is nice and has a nice view, I enjoyed sitting in it every morning watching the sun come up. The King size bed in the bedroom was very comfortable and had really nice soft sheets. The bathroom was clean and spacious. There is also tons of storage in this house to which is nice. This house is definately going to be a top pick for me when I visit the valley. You can't beat the location your just minutes to Glacier Point which in my opinion is one of the best views in the world, and the accommodations were great. The pictures of this house are spot on, but the pictures of the outside don't do this house justice you have to be there to fully enjoy the incredible beauty of the area. I would definately recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place to stay. And the value is incredible. Can't say enough loved it! Laura H Northern CA
