Why Jim chose Foresta
This property has been in my family since the mid 1970s. After the A-Rock fire in 1990 destroyed the original house we were amazed to discover that we suddenly had views of both El Capitan and Half Dome. When we rebuilt in 2006 great care was taken in the design and placement of the house to take maximum advantage of the view.
What makes this House unique
It is extremely rare to be able to stay in a private home within a national park with such spectacular views. There are only a handful of homes in the entire park with such a view.

A gem of a home near YNP
This home beat our expectations. The view is incredible, the location is perfect for quick access to Yosemite Valley and it is fully stocked with everything you need during your stay. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family and will be booking again soon.
Loved our stay. The home is welcoming, well appointed. We had a relaxing time taking in the mountains and the snow.
Phenomenal view, fantastic for families
We've visited Yosemite a dozen times and this was our favorite lodging. The house is well designed showcasing the spectacular view of El Cap and Half Dome. The location close to the valley floor made it easy to access hikes and climbs. (Guessing access could be challenging in the snow). Well appointed and still totally comfortable for families. The game room was a hit for kids at a range of ages. Consistent wifi access. Have already recommended to friends and hope to stay again.
Pictures do not do this property justice. From the moment we arrived the attention to details was evident. After spending as much daylight hours in the park the Solar powered LED lights along the stairs leading to the entry door were very welcoming. Waking up the next morning to brilliant blue skies with the view of Half Dome was incredible! Yosemite is a large park and knowing that we did not have to leave the park was fantastic. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and the kitchen are all equipped perfectly. It is often the little things, like having a zip lock baggie to carry our picnic goodies in, that makes all the difference. Some VRBOs are sparse, but Jim has done an excellent job of making it feel like home away from home. Thank you Jim, we would all love to come back for a longer stay next time!
Yosemite is beautiful
Jim was great to deal with. House was very nice
In the woods, secluded and private. Amazing view of both El Capitan and Half Dome from the deck. Creek with swimming hole nearby. Hike to a waterfall about a mile away.
Please note Foresta is inside the park and only a few minutes from the valley. To ensure you have the experience you expect, always ask about exact location of Yosemite rentals. Other homes listed under 'Yosemite National Park' can be up to a two hour drive away.
