  • Great cozy house close to Yosemite

    "We loved our stay at the Midpines house. It was nice, cozy, with lots of things provided, and the hot tub was just amazing after a day of hiking. Conveniently close to Yosemite. Sandy and Alan gave us all the instructions beforehand and all the process was super easy and great. We will definitely come back!"

  • Conveniently located

    "This house is a great jumping off point for all things you might want to do in Yosemite. About 20 - 30 minutes from the Valley, Glacier Point and Mariposa Groves. The house is very clean and well stocked. The owners greeted us upon arrival and made us feel at home. They gave us great suggestions for the week. The neighborhood is very quiet and much cooler during the summer months than in the Valley - at least 10 degrees difference. We had 2 boys (9 and 13) and had a great week of hiking, climbing and white water rafting. Would definitely recommend if you want to stay in the park but away from the congestion in the Valley."

  • Excellent space!

    "We stayed in the house for a little reunion with friends, to visit yosemite. Although the drive to the entrance is little less than an hour (+ another hour from the gates to the actual park) the drive is beautiful!, there's Bass Lake nearby, so we made a stop on our way to Yosemite, so, the drive is really not an issue. There's a gas station just 3 min. away from the house, which is very convenient (also, the town is really close with "big" stores like vons, etc). The grill is a bit small considering the amount of people that fits in the house, and one of the bathrooms was out of service during our stay. (would have been nice to have the 3 bathrooms available). But still, a great place to stay and share with friends and family! The gazebo makes a great stop to just rest and enjoy the view. :)"

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.
