About the property

Beautiful 3 Br - 2.5 Bath House Inside Yosemite National Park and Garage Parking

Looking for a hide out inside the gates of Yosemite to take a memorable vacation, explore new places complete with adventure, fun and relaxation? Yosemite Hideout is just the place for you!! My home in Yosemite West offers a secluded respite 18 miles inside the South Entrance of Yosemite. Nestled in the trees at 6000' in elevation, and far away from the surrounding Valley communities, Yosemite Hideout is midway between the Yosemite Valley waterfalls and granite monoliths, the Giant Sequoias in the Mariposa Grove and the breathtaking views from Glacier Point and Sentinel Dome. Yosemite Hideout is the ideal place to set up your base-camp!! (This is a brand new listing and the calender is wide open!!)

Yosemite Hideout is a three bedroom, two 1/2 bath house deep inside the park boundaries. Yosemite Hideout is PERFECT for family getaways! There is a large two car garage on the road at the main house level, making unloading your car quick and easy, even in the winter!! Three large private decks float high in a pine tree canopy on the property with the two largest facing west where you experience the wonderful sunsets. Enjoy a barbeque, a glass of wine and good cheer on the deck recounting your day's adventures and explorations of Yosemite.

If you prefer to cook a gourmet meal, Yosemite Hideout has a HUGE fully appointed kitchen with full-sized appliance, spacious counter tops, and all the cooking equipment and gear you will need including pots, pans, Oxo utensils, coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric beater, tea pot, microwave and plenty of interesting cookbooks! You will have your choice between informal eating on the porch under the umbrella, or the adjustable butterfly table in the dining room.

Yosemite Hideout's living areas are on the top floor away from the downstairs bedrooms. In the living room you will find a flat screen television with Acoustat speakers, an extensive DVD collection, Yosemite Guidebooks, novels and comfortable seating. Satellite internet is available for checking your email and browsing. (Please note that the satellite internet is NOT sufficient to stream video or other bandwidth intensive activities).

Yosemite Hideout has been my home for the past almost three decades. This year is the first year I have made it available for guests to enjoy. My good friends and neighbors Melissa and Jeff are close by and quickly onsite in case you need assistance with the house. They have kindly offered to help make your stay at Yosemite Hideout a memorable vacation!!

About Jeff Hornacek

Iconic ski instructor Nic Fiore taught me to ski at Badger Pass when I was three years old. I could not get enough of the snow, the trees, the smell and the unparalleled beauty of Yosemite National Park. After high school I took a brief hiatus and worked for the Yosemite Park & Curry Co in a variety of jobs including ski patrol, ski instructor, life guard and pantry worker. I returned to college and still worked in Yosemite on weekends. The National Park Service hired me as a Park Ranger and I held every job imaginable for the next 20 years ~ horse patrol ranger, resources manager, foot patrol, fee collector, EMT and dispatcher. Law school was my next calling and while I have never lost my love for Yosemite I do not get home as often I would like so I decided to share my home with Park Visitors. I hope you will find as much fun, adventure and pure happiness here as I have over the years. My neighbors Jeff and Melissa will help insure you have everything you need for your perfect vacation.

Jeff Hornacek purchased this house in 1988

Why Jeff Hornacek chose Yosemite Area

My parents starting bringing me to Yosemite National Park when I was three years old. I remember frequent family trips to Yosemite to ski, hike, ride horses, float on the river and ride bicycles. I feel like I grew up in Yosemite and once out of high school I began working for the Yosemite Park & Curry Co before going to college. After working several years for the National Park Service I had the wonderful opportunity to purchase an empty lot in Yosemite West, a place I knew I wanted to be for a very long time. My dream of building a home came true in 1988. As you know, Yosemite National Park is quite simply the most breathtaking place on earth. The waterfalls, the granite domes and monoliths, the Giant Sequoias, Sugar Pines, and Oak trees are most spectacular in Yosemite National Park. There are over 750 miles of established trail in the Park, giving you the opportunity to see extensive wildlife such as bear, mountain lions, deer, squirrels, raccoons, coyotes and marmots on a regular basis. If you are lucky enough to live in the mountains you are lucky enough.

What makes this house unique

Yosemite Hideout is in Yosemite West.....right in the middle of the most popular Yosemite sites.....whether it's the many waterfalls and huge granite monoliths and domes of Yosemite Valley to the north, the Giant Sequoias of Mariposa Grove to the south, or the breathtaking views from Glacier Point to the east, you are perfectly positioned to explore them all when your base is Yosemite Hideout in Yosemite West. Add to that the unparalleled comfort of the Hideout and scenic sunset views from the decks, you are truly able to hide out from your daily life and recharge your batteries. The large two car garage has easy access from the street, and to the main floor of the house; unloading your car is simple and the layout supports easy access during winter snows. The 6000' elevation is cooler in the summer than the surrounding towns and Yosemite Valley, and because Yosemite Hideout faces to the West, it is warmer in the winter.

Great location & a very comfortable family accommodation.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home that has everything you need. Jeff & Melissa were great to work with & very accommodating. It's so close to Yosemite Valley & Glacier Point that it makes it easier when traveling with young kids. Only complaint was the mattress in the 2nd bedroom (off the lower deck) was a bit too firm for our family members that stayed there. It was great to have the half bath on the street level. The oversized garage worked out well for our large rental SUV.

We really enjoy the large selection of movies & games. Very comfortable house & a great place to stay.

Overall good place to stay; just has some minor issues

  • 3 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here in early May, 2017. Overall, we really liked the location, space provided by the home, proximity to Yosemite sites, solitude, etc.

The beds were very comfortable. Master suite has a king bed, which was nice. By keeping the house closed up during the day and opening windows in the evening, we kept it nice and cool inside. Kitchen had plenty of utensils, etc. Everything about the kitchen was really nice. We also liked having 3 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms.

There is a large selection of videos, which is nice, since there isn't any satellite TV.

Internet is very limited. Just be aware. Most of us go to Yosemite to enjoy the beauty, but if you must have lots of online access, this isn't the place for you.

A couple of minor points/improvements that could be made -

- We killed 3 very large spiders. These were BIG spiders. We also caught a lizard and put him back outside. Some pest control for the spiders would be good.

- We had to call and request access to the laundry room. It is behind a locked door and you will need to get a code to a lock box for access.

- This place was not cleaned well. We found hairs, dust, cobwebs, etc. We like our living spaces to be clean and have high standards when spending this much on a vacation rental. Outdoor table/chairs were dirty.

- This house needs some general maintenance. I found light bulbs out, some fixtures in disrepair, etc. For example, 1 of the 2 shower heads in the master bath was non-functional.

Overall, we liked this place and for the the most part are glad we stayed here.

The property was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the Yosemite Hideout. It was perfect for our family, especially with the living upstairs and bedrooms below. And the location in relation to Yosemite valley, Glacier Point, and Wawona was awesome.

Thanks for all the care leading up to the trip. We really enjoyed our visit.

Fantastic gem of a house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the house and our experience in Yosemite. The location was great and the house had everything we needed. The kitchen was the best part and we enjoyed cooking family dinners after long hikes in the park. We hope to come again soon!
