Being avid hikers that frequent the park, we can help you plan your Yosemite visits, with suggestions as to the more scenic and less busy places and times in the park.
We are a scenic 40 min drive from the entrance gates on highway 120. The 2700 sq. ft lodge is simple, yet elegant. It will suit a very wide range of needs, from a small group, to someone looking for a well appointed space for their special event.
We are a destination with its own beauty and charm, a beautiful valley, a former Yosemite Miwok Indian village site. We make all our power from solar, yet have a new and modern house with most all amenities.
We have a dog friendly room, (additional fee). This is the only room of the house that dogs can be in. We are perfect for families large and small.
This site began the first tourist trail into Yosemite in the 1860s, a trail that John Muir walked.) History tours are available.
There are miles of trails, swim holes and a limestone cave to explore.
There are many things to learn about: living off the grid on alternative energy systems, the Miwok Indians and their village here, and the gold rush period that followed, gold panning, sustainable forestry, edible wild greens, etc! See the old rock work that built the Coulterville free trail into Yosemite in the 1850s and the old stone buildings still standing today.
Guests can hike our 300 acres of trails and have access to two swim holes, a cave to explore, and nearby swim holes as well. We have a fully equipped kitchen just for guests to prepare your meals. Also a propane BBQ as well as a charcoal bbq (bring your own charcoal). The game room with ping pong and lots of board games will keep everyone busy playing together! We have a house phone with unlimited nationwide phone calls. We also have WiFi for our guests. Note: We have a very fully equipped kitchen for our guests to use. There is a second kitchen (a commercial kitchen) which is not available for guests.
We are very familiar with Yosemite and the trails. We can help you plan a memorable trip through the park, based on your needs, and help you to avoid the crowds while having an awesome Yosemite experience!
The quiet peacefulness and wide open spaces make this a place to really unwind. We love the quiet, waking up to the birds chirping, the clear flowing water, the remoteness of the land.
