Yosemite National Park cottage description

Craftsman style private Guest House with the best privacy and views in the area. Designer grade appointments with CAL King bed, whirlpool bathtub, full kitchen, dining room, and private deck with barbecue. The Hideaway has central air conditioning for a perfect summer retreat.

The comfortable living room includes remote control fireplace, HD satellite TV with networks, cable news, HBO, ESPN's, WiFi and views of the park.

A full kitchen and breakfast bar is provided with all the cookware, plates and utensils you'll need for a quick breakfast or gourmet meal. It's complete with gas stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The dining area is surrounded by 180 degree mountain views.

The luxurious bath suite includes a 6' whirlpool bathtub for 2, Italian marble shower, radiant floor heat and morning light through private windows. The Hideaway is located in a forested mountain community within the gates of Yosemite Park.

The Hideaway is a luxury house for 2 but can accommodate up to 4 with the extra guests sleeping on aero beds on the floor in the living room area. Our property is a unique home and may not be suitable for children under 4 yrs old due to open stairs, fireplace and steep mountain terrain surrounding the Hideaway. There is a $25 or $35 (depending on the season) per night, per extra guest for the 3rd and 4th person or child staying at our cottage. The floor plan is an open design with bedroom above the living room.

Weeklong stays include use of the laundry room in the cottage. A touch-up cleaning is also included with week stays.

Check-in is at 4pm and check-out is 11am. We will accommodate other check-in requests if possible. Plan on additional time to drive thru the Park to arrive at the Hideaway.

Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is located at 6000' elevation in Yosemite West. This unique community is located within the gates of the Park with the best central location for day tripping to Yosemite Valley, Badger Pass Ski, Glacier Point, Wawona and the Big Trees.

The high county of Toulumne Meadows is a 90 minute drive thru mountain vistas, high alpine lakes and forests of giant sequoia trees.

There is access to walking or mountain biking forest roads from the Hideaway. Skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are a short drive to Glacier Point where you can rent all the gear you need for an epic winter adventure.

Cell service is very good for Verizon and Golden State with 3G service from the Hideaway. There is no Cell service for other carriers. Sorry it's a remote mountain location. A land-line telephone with local service is included and you may use your calling card.

CAUTION: Winter travel thru the park requires all cars/trucks to carry snow chains. Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is located on a steep access road where winter snows may require special parking conditions. Please email or call with snow condition access questions.

We look forward to hearing from you, Melissa and Jeff

          We stumbled across this unique property 17 years ago and fell for it right away. We built our home 10 years ago and just finished the guest cottage this year. We enjoy sharing this special place with like-minded people who treasure the wonders of nature, enjoy quality accommodations in a quiet and private neighborhood. We have designed and built beautiful homes in the community from large log estates to cozy private cottages. Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is the latest creation of craftsmanship and quality finishes with one of the best locations in the area.
