  • bass lake house

    "Our stay at this property was very enjoyable. The house was perfect for us and was just what we were looking for. It is just as the pictures show and very homey and cottagey (if that's a word). The owners are very nice and easy to get along with. We traveled into the Yosemite Valley and hiked and went to Christmas fairs and lovely French dinners in Oakhurst. There are really good hiking trails right down the road from the house. All in all a wonderful experience. Dinner at Ducey's is a must."

  • Great Family Vacation

    "We just returned from spending a week in this wonderful home. The home easily accommodated my husband and I, our daughter and son-in-law and our three grandchildren ages 7, 9, & 11. The layout of the house was great, with 2 of the bedrooms having attached bathrooms and the children having their own bathroom complete with tub. The favorite room of the house was the game room with its pinball machine, pool table and ping pong table. The room is separate from the living room which gives the adults space to just relax. The juke box has a great selection of songs, including YMCA which we enjoyed dancing to! The availability of the dock was an added bonus, we rented a patio a boat for 3 days and it was great to have the boat at our own dock so we could come and go as we pleased. Smores on the Lake at Sunset were so yummy! We would highly recommend this home as a vacation getaway. Dealing with Carole Severe was so easy, she is so helpful and accommodating."

  • Amazing only begins to describe this fabulous home

    "If we could select 10 stars we would. Everything we ever hoped for in a quality rental home was here...and more. From the amazing help and information from the owner ahead of our booking to the actual property itself was exceptional. Our 2 girls (8 and 7) adored this special home from the recessed windows, the gorgeous peaceful setting, the wildlife...everything! It was immaculately clean, organized, tidy with comfortable beautiful bedrooms and special touches that added to an amazing stay. From the washer/dryer with detergent provided to basics like the 'emergency coffee' - every area was covered! We HIGHLY recommend this home to anyone seeking bliss away from home but especially to those with high standards and who appreciate a beautiful home."

  • Just as advertised

    "Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Minutes from the west entrance of yosemite (hwy 120). Well equipped kitchen and weber grill outside allowed for easy prep of breakfasts and dinners before and after days in the park. Very quiet location - rare to see a vehicle drive past the home. Highly recommend."

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.
