About Steve

We were born and raised in California and have treasured going to Yosemite with our families and friends. The annual trip to Yosemite was the high point of each year. Our fondest memories are of our trips to Yosemite. Because of our strong love for Yosemite, we built a home in the park.

Why Steve chose Yosemite National Park

We have been vacationing at Yosemite for over thirty years. Generations of our family love the park and all the available activities that Yosemite offers. The park's beauty is unmatched. This new, charming house has much to offer to you and your family.

What makes this house unique

Close to the valley floor and Glacier Point. The home is within the park's gates. Badger Pass Ski Resort is close by.

Five stars is not enough! Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

I challenge you to find a more beautiful, well appointed, comfortable home to rent in Yosemite! We were there for the unseasonably warm weather weekend of Feb 13-16, 2015. This amazing home has it all! From the moment we drove up to the place, perched at the end of a quiet cup de sac, we knew this was going to be a great vacation home base for our family group of 8. Walking in the door we could see that the owner's attention to detail was extraordinary. The kitchen has every amenity that you could ever possibly need, and everything has its place and is labeled so you can figure out where to put things back. I want the person who organized this kitchen to come do mine! Everything from ceiling to floor is immaculate! Very clean! The living room is comfy and we enjoyed the incredible stone fireplace and extensive DVD collection throughout our stay. I was stuck indoors for two of the days with sick children, unable to explore Yosemite, but the plentiful Yosemite DVDs available, as well as other genres helped us to feel like we were out exploring. Every room is well appointed, with many blankets, extra pillows, tons of soft high quality bedding and towels, and great decor. The decor throughout the house is serene, rustic chic and not overly done or kitschy. Gorgeous home! We even were provided with a huge snack basket in the kitchen and wonderful toiletries and chocolate Valentine's Day gift baskets in the bedrooms! Nice touch that went above and beyond! Plenty of room for all 8 of us. We had great fun with the pool table and rocking in all the rocking chairs on the front porch. The owners are very helpful, quick to answer any questions and were friendly and great to work with. Seriously, why stay anywhere else?! We loved this home and can't wait to go back! Stop looking at vrbo...book this home now!

Exceptional Home In A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our party of eight thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home for a four-night getaway. We all noticed how well organized and clean it was. I don't know how they did it, but they somehow arranged for a couple of beautiful bears to feed for an hour just 40 yards from the deck. We also appreciated the location...in the park with comfortable drives to the valley floor, Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove. We highly recommend!

Great home in at great location

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Yosemite four times and this has been the best place I've stayed, by far. The home is new, spacious and very comfortable. And only 15-20 minutes from Yosemite Valley. It was very well stocked with kitchen equipment and common items like salt, sugar, spices, coffee, tea, soap, shampoo, etc. I've rented other fine vacation homes in the past and most aren't as well stocked with the basic essentials. Furthermore, the owner had provided us with a lovely gift basket of snacks, and baskets of toiletries in the bathrooms. Those were very much appreciated. I highly recommend this home.

Yosemite Dream Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a stunning home you built! I think we were all speechless upon arriving to see it for the first time…just magical! You can truly feel the love you put into creating this vacation home. It is full of beautiful furnishings yet so warm and comfortable. We truly had a difficult time leaving for our daily hikes and excursions through the park! We had every amenity that we needed…actually more! The welcome snacks/treats were a delicious accompaniment during our treks through Yosemite and the bath/spa gifts added a luxurious end to the hot days in the park. This vacation was one of our best ever! The Caretaker was also always on had for any help or attention we needed. Thank you again for sharing your precious home with us! We will have wonderful memories of Copper Bear Lodge…and the park too, of course!
