  • Thanksgiving Get-Away

    "Our kids and grandkids live in the Bay Area and we live in the Seattle area. This home was the perfect place for us to meet and spend Thanksgiving together. The 4 parents and the 4 kids slept upstairs and Grandma and Grandpa stayed in the downstairs suite - perfect for all! I will never forget the delight in the grandkids' faces as they explored the trails, the tree house, the pirate ship and the game room. They live in a big city so it was wonderful to give them the freedom to run and play. We especially enjoyed watching the deer around the property. The house was furnished with everything we needed. The towels and linens were nice. We spent one day at Yosemite and the rest of our stay at the house where we found plenty to do. We could text on our phones but had no strong cell service. That turned out to be great as we forgot about our electronics and spent quality time playing games, walking and visiting. Thank you to the thoughtful owner of this gorgeous property for creating some special memories for our family."

  • Perfection

    "We were two couples, one up from LA and one from San Francisco, looking for a nice place to relax in the evenings after exploring Yosemite. This was the best! All instructions for operating anything in the house were clear and everything was labeled. We wanted for nothing. The best part was stargazing (I saw two shooting stars!) in the hot tub at the end of the night and cozying up by the wood burning stove. We will be back!"

  • Great Location For Visits To Yosemite Or Just A Get-Away

    "We've stayed at several VRBO properties and would rate this our most favorite, because of its location, comfort, decor, cleanliness, and friendliness/thoughtfulness of the owner. First of all, Sunset Roost is aptly named because of the spectacular sunsets from the deck. We even found ourselves timing our daily departures from Yosemite to get back to enjoy those sunsets! The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped. The furniture is very comfortable. The decor is very tasteful. The hot-tub is an added bonus. Rosemary grows all around the property. Wild life abounds, including hummingbirds. It's a total close-to-nature sensorial delight. There is zero light pollution, so the stars sparkle brightly, the planets wander, and the Milky Way splashes across the night sky. Mariposa is a fun western town only about 15-20 minutes away with various restaurants, pubs, pizza, gas, groceries, etc., so the necessities of civilization are within comfortable driving distance. We could not recommend this property more highly!"

  • Just a Perfect Home

    "The Todd's home is absolutely ideal. It's peaceful, it's well furnished with everything you could possibly think of that you might need for your excursions and it's fresh and new. The location is great because you can head either one way to get to the park or another way to get to the park and there are different experiences either option. The house was just wonderful and an ideal situation for families, for couples, and those who respect a property with all the right amenities to make their vacation just right!"

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.
