Located above Highway 41 and just minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance, our comfortable, family-friendly modern mountain home offers a convenient yet private retreat with stunning mountain views, luxurious clean living spaces, and even the nostalgic sounds of the nearby Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad.
This is not a rustic cabin! Our 2300 square-foot, 3 bedroom home offers you all the modern comforts and open spaces you'll need for that unforgettable trip to the Yosemite area with your extended family or friends.

For the most accurate, up-to-date details be sure to visit our website (the link is near the bottom of this page, just look for "The Logger's Retreat"). It has more helpful information, more pictures, and full details on our rates and policies. You'll also find our availability calendar there for your vacation planning convenience.

It's best to contact us by email but you can also call and leave a message if you prefer. When checking our calendar remember that we normally need a full calendar day between groups in order to prepare the house. Happy planning!

Our unique home overlooks the upper reaches of the Lewis Creek watershed at an elevation of nearly 5000 feet. In the summer, the climate here ranges from comfortable daytime highs that average in the upper 70's (~25 degrees Celsius), to cool evenings with average lows in the low 50's (~10 degrees Celsius).

At this elevation the sun is intense all year round. There is nearly always a gentle breeze blowing during the day. There is very little or no rain during the summer months so humidity levels are very low and swimsuits air-dry quickly. Spring and early fall are the seasons of dynamic color and wetter weather. Late fall, winter and early spring are quiet seasons of incredible beauty. Along with this beauty comes the possibility of ice and snow on mountain roads and on our steep driveway.

Our prime location puts you away from the crowds, yet close to everything Yosemite has to offer. The southern entrance to Yosemite is less than four miles up the road. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to call home. There is so much do to here that you could easily fill your day with excitement without ever entering the park itself!

Yosemite National Park and the Mariposa Grove of giant Sequoias are just 10 minutes north. In the winter you can play in the snow just north of Fish Camp, or drive up to Badger Pass for snow-shoeing, tubing, and your choice of either cross-country or downhill skiing. In summer you can enjoy horseback riding just outside of Fish Camp as well as swimming and excellent fishing in nearby Big Creek. The refreshing beauty of Corlieu Falls is only 10 minutes south of our home. Water sports at Bass Lake and shopping in Oakhurst are only 20 minutes away. You can even find fine dining at the Narrow Gauge Inn and an authentic steam locomotive ride at the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad right across the road from us!
