  • Perfect relaxing getaway!

    "My extended family stayed at Seth and Regina's home and it was perfect. It was clean, the kitchen is VERY well stocked, and it had so many fun activities that we almost didn't want to go out an do anything! We played ping pong, pool, darts, grilled on the deck, and battled it out on the Nintendo. It was wonderful. They were very helpful hosts with clear directions, driving notes for the nearby Nelder Grove (beautiful hike without the crowds), and a wonderful housekeeper who mailed us a forgotten dress shirt and lonesome sock. We also went to the Sugar Pine Railroad while we were there. It was close and a great adventure for the kids and adults alike."

  • Wonderfully perfect!

    "We stayed for 5 days at Alpenglow. There were 6 adults and 4 kids...with PLENTY of room for all of us. A nice large living room to sit around the fire and play games, chat, or read. A den with a tv and games/books/movies for kids kept the noise away from the main living room. Beautiful deck, great space for kids to explore right outside the front and back doors. Kitchen had great appliances, bathrooms were well stocked and super clean. My mother had a broken knee cap and was in a full leg cast during the trip...and while the place is probably officially not handicap equipped...it actually worked out just fine for us. There is a walkway from the driveway up to the back door that does not require steps, just a gentle slope...so she was able to get in and out of the house just fine. There is a bedroom on the bottom floor with a king-sized bed and bathroom for those that might have mobility issues. Everything worked out great for her. The kids slept in every possible place because there were so many to choose from. Futons, beds, pull-out sofa sleeper, etc. They said each of them was plenty comfortable and they loved trying a new place each night. It was like an adventure for them to explore all the different options. We had all different weather while we were there...snow, sun, rain. The house was well controlled by the heater and insulation...we weren't too hot or too cold. Lots of blankets, sheets, towels, pillows...never lacked for anything to feel more comfortable. We highly recommend taking the short hike out to see Foresta Falls. And, if you find that you're just dying to use your cell phone...the reception on that hike is unusually good for the area. Better than within the Foresta housing area and the Valley floor, actually. Wifi at Alpenglow is slow (and the owners tell you that in advance)...but you shouldn't be there for computing anyways, right?! If you just have to post photos to Facebook...do it on the hike to foresta falls. The caretakers obviously love the house and put a great deal of effort to keep it nice for their visitors. The house was ready exactly at the time it was supposed to be for check-in...the instructions for check-out were easy to follow. We couldn't find anything wrong with the place. Seriously a wonderful time!"

  • Amazing Cabin Retreat!

    "This cabin was everything and more for my partner and I! I couldn't recommend this more for a couple to stay at. Just minutes from the main Yosemite entrance, and a quick drive to Oakhurst for groceries, dining, etc. The cabin was fully stocked with all essentials, and very cozy - especially for the rainy days we experienced. I would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks for making my first time in Yosemite very memorable!"

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.

Sierra Nevada Vacation Rentals in Yosemite

Yosemite is one of the major parks that has a number of resorts and private homes within its boundaries. This provides a wide variety of accommodation options for visitors.
