Fantastic Location Inside the Park! Situated high among the pine trees, Bird's-eye Vista is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of nature. It's not unusual to catch a glimpse of wildlife such as deer, coyote, chipmunks and birds. You will enjoy a bird's-eye view of pine forests and the Merced River Canyon. Relax on the spacious deck, patio and bedroom balconies and enjoy glorious sunsets. Enjoy views from every room, in the cozy living area near the gas fireplace and even from the king-sized bathtub and the enclosed glass shower in the master bathroom. Located just minutes away from most visited sights in the Park! The driveway is on a slope with a narrow parking spot at the top. There's room for at least one more car on the driveway. Cement steps, about 12, lead up to the house and there are stairs inside.. so be prepared for a bit of exercise on arrival. If you don't mind the extra steps, we believe you will find Bird's-eye Vista as peaceful and delightful as we do!

Charming! Cozy! Full of Surprises!
A nature lover's dream, the cabin is filled with sun light and lovely views from every room, deck and balcony. Spot birds and chattering chipmunks from the decks and if you are lucky, be awed by some of Yosemite's other wild animals. Be inspired by the mountains, forest and glorious sunsets in front of you!
Fun for couples and families!
Large windows and French doors await you for admiring the views. The house is cozy and well equipped with quality bedding, games for children and adults, CD's and DVD's for your enjoyment. Whether it's snowshoeing and sledding right outside your door or stargazing and grilling on the deck, your stay will be a trip to remember.
The parking spaces are at the very top in the narrow area by the cement steps. There's room for 2 cars to park in this narrow lane. For unloading passengers and bags, feel free to park midway so you have more room. After unloading you can then move your vehicle up into the parking area. Its somewhat steep and the elevation is 6,000 feet so be aware you may feel out of breath. We find that sort of bucket-brigade approach to unloading makes it easier... one or two brings supplies to the house and others brings them upstairs to the living areas. Take your time, and enjoy the birds eye view!
When exciting, back up carefully until you can proceed forward down the other side of the horseshoe - its is steep so go slowly and be aware of the dip at the bottom.
While Bird's-eye Vista is situated on a mountain slope to take advantage of the expansive forest views and the Merced valley, a bit of patience and neighborly cooperation is so appreciated. We welcome you to our home, and we sincerely hope you enjoy a grand Yosemite adventure!
