  • Love this place

    "This is a delightful midcentury property with everything we needed for an anniversary stay near Yosemite. Filled with art and history and nice example of mid-century architecture and decor. It took us an hour or so to drive all the way into the park, and this little home away from home was everything we needed for pleasant mornings and evenings in. We had our anniversary lunch at the Ahwahnee and cooked a couple of fine steaks at "our Oakhurst home" that evening. In Oakhurst you have everything you need for a wide selection of groceries. For dinner you can try Crabcakes and there's Pete's for a huge breakfast. But we really enjoyed making the most of this house."

    "We came up here for a family get together and we had an amazing time. The views were beautiful, the house was walking distance from the lake. The place was very clean and newly remodeled. The landlord was very nice. She checked in with us to see if everything was ok. Everyone was very happy, especially the kids. The kids loved the game room. We rerarly saw them lol. We will definitly come back again."

  • The best place for your nature getaway.

    "We were very excited when we decided to go explore Yosemite and the surrounding area. When we found the Vinyard View home, we were very happy with all that it had to offer on the advertisement. We were at first scared of the 45 minute drive to the valley, but decided that this home had all that we wanted in a house and we would deal with the ride. When, we first arrived at the property, we couldn't believe our eyes. This little cottage had its own gated private driveway and is literally set in a dreamlike setting of lilacs, oaks, daffodils, and other trees on 7 gorgeous acres. My 6 year old daughter and our giant Schnoodle had the best time of their lives, exploring, running and playing. Inside of the house was also lovely, the huge Windows's gave a beautiful view of the fron and back yard. The decorations, were great, and I truly felt as comfortable as I was at my own home. Kirsty has thought of everything, the house has it all: from adult to children's books, toys, strollers, baby monitor, shopping bags, spices, extra food, all kinds of cooking utensils and pots ( slow-cooker, blender ,food processor). The area was breathtaking, we looked forward to driving around, and the 45 minute drive to Yosemite felt more like 25 since we were busy looking at the beauty that surrounded us. The best treat was watching from the windows of our house as the deer came to munch on the grass in the front yard. They came quite often and were pretty tolerant as we ventured outside to take pictures of them a few times. Overall an unforgettable experience, we will defiantly be back to the Vinyard view home."

Yosemite Area Travel Tips

Incredible Scenery at Yosemite

One thing that Yosemite is known for is its beautiful scenery. Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the landscape is characterized by majestic mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls and wide valleys. It is the perfect vacation destination for people who enjoy nature and appreciate beautiful scenery. Yosemite is also known for its abundant wildlife, in particular its bears. Visitors who enjoy wildlife viewing can explore the park daily and seek out animals to get some great wildlife photographs. Yosemite has some world-famous climbing crags that attract climbers from around the globe. It is also a popular National Park for hiking. There are trails suitable for both families and more experienced hikers. The valley has a paved biking trail that is ideal for sightseeing and gaining access to some of the more remote areas of the park. Bikes can be hired from various centers in the park.

Things to See and Do near Yosemite Cabins

Yosemite is famous for its incredible waterfalls. There are seven spectacular waterfalls within the park and a further four just outside of it. The Yosemite Falls are made of three smaller waterfalls known as the upper, middle and lower falls. In total, the waterfall has a drop of 2,425 feet, making it the fifth highest waterfall in the world. The Ribbon Falls cascade off the west side of El Capitan and have a drop of 1,612 feet. The Ribbon Falls is the tallest single waterfall in the United States. Other waterfalls include the beautiful Bridalveil Falls, so named because the wind often blows the waterfall, spreading out the water like a bridal veil. The Horsetail Falls is a seasonal waterfall than runs for several weeks in February off the eastern side of El Capitan. The background light from the sun lights up the waterfall in a spectacular way, making it look as though it’s on fire.

Yosemite’s rock formations provide excellent subjects for photographs, especially in the early morning or late afternoon sunlight. Some of the more famous landmarks include El Capitan which is a 7,569-foot granite peak that rises up from the valley floor. It is a challenging and well-known rock climbing face. Mt. Lyell is the tallest peak in the park and also home to the park’s only active glacier. The peak rises up to an impressive height of 13,114 feet. The Matterhorn peak is at an altitude of 12,264 feet and part of a series of peaks that make up the Sawtooth Ridge in the northeastern part of the park.

Best Time of Year to Visit Yosemite

Because of the extensive amount of trails and wildlife viewing opportunities, most people prefer to visit during the summer season. This is also the season when the waterfalls are at their most spectacular. The long summer days are ideal for exploring and enjoying your favorite outdoor activities. Yet summer is not the only season when it’s worth visiting Yosemite. The fall and winter months are particularly beautiful in the park. Snow occurs at higher altitudes and there is a ski resort at Badger Pass which has a number of ski runs. Cross country skiing is also available at Mariposa Grove.
