Yosemite West puts you in the heart of it all

Yosemite West is a private community of resort properties that offer rustic living at its best. Surrounded by trails and stunning scenery, your Yosemite West vacation rental is a shining example of low-key life in California. Of course, the real draw here is its proximity to Yosemite National Park and other beautiful natural surroundings. Its reputation as one of the country’s most scenic wonders is unparalleled—and it’s an inarguable fact that you’re in pretty good position if your goal is to post photo after photo of one of the world’s most compelling attractions.

Things to do

From museums to villages, Yosemite West has it all

When you book a Yosemite West vacation rental, you’re minutes from some of the country’s most beloved attractions. The Yosemite Museum, dating from the 1920s, is packed with exquisite exhibits showcasing the area’s phenomenal landscapes and sites. Since Yosemite West is located within the gates of the park, you’re ideally situated to enjoy everything it has to offer. Head to Yosemite Village if you need the 411 on what’s going on, or to check out the Indian Cultural Museum and Garden next door to the visitor’s center.

Activities

Get active in the natural wonder of Yosemite West

When you book your Yosemite West vacation rental, you have a world of opportunity at your fingertips. If you love golf, the Wawona Golf Course is approximately 20 minutes away by car. When you venture to the park, you’ll be in prime position to spot hundreds of different kinds of birds and wildlife. By the time you leave the area, you could very well be a professional stargazer—the park itself is dotted with telescopes. Up for a picnic? Yosemite itself is the perfect place to lay out your lunch.

Weather

High above, the weather is perfectly fine

Yosemite West is situated at an altitude of 5500 feet, which is considerably higher than the valley itself. This means that when summer arrives, you won’t have to deal with stiflingly hot temps when you leave your Yosemite West vacation rental. Instead, you’ll notice it’s at least 10 to 20 degrees cooler. Winter is generally a mild affair, although snow does accumulate fast once it starts to fall and lasts throughout. The average temperature in the area ranges from 36 to 67 degrees. The occasional summer thunderstorm isn't out of the question, either.

Natural features

Epic hiking trails and forested grounds

Yosemite would be nothing without its geography—we all agree on that, right? On all sides, Yosemite West is surrounded by Sierra National Forest and Yosemite National Park. The edge of Yosemite West is lined with hiking trails, at least one of which crosses over both Rail and Strawberry Creeks. The forested Eleven-Mile Trail is worth the hike, too, and wildlife abounds in the neighborhoods of Yosemite West. Mind yourself, though, as you never know when you may encounter a deer or a coyote. If you’re venturing further into the park, you may spot a red fox or a wolverine track!
