About Doe, The El Capitan View

Welcome to our rental home in Yosemite! We have lived, worked, raised a son and enjoyed Yosemite since 1972.

Doe, The El Capitan View purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Doe, The El Capitan View chose Yosemite

We love Foresta in Yosemite for its solitude. You can escape the hectic Yosemite Valley to the peace and quite of Foresta while still being inside Yosemite.

What makes this cabin unique

This Yosemite Cabin offers solitude and peacefulness from the hectic crowds found in Yosemite Valley. While only 6 miles from Yosemite Valley you can escape to your home in the Yosemite Mountains!

Our Yosemite Vacation Home in Foresta is a stargazers paradise thanks to no street or town lights and wide open spaces.

Foresta in Yosemite is also known for its excellent bird watching. We often see Bald Eagles, Red Tail Hawks, Blue Birds and many more species.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay here thoroughly and its close proximity to Yosemite. Yosemite was such a amazing place with breath taking views. After a long day exploring the sites of Yosemite, it was great to come back to your beautiful cabin and relax in this peaceful setting. We were very fortunate to see Yosemite in such good conditions.



we were also lucky enough to see mule deer on 2 occasions. We would certainly stay again if the opportunity arose and recommend your cabin to our Australian friends.



Most enjoyable stay.

Quiet, peaceful, nicely appointed house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in April and found this to be a terrific base for visiting Yosemite. The cabin is in excellent condition and the king bed downstairs was very comfortable. The downstairs bath was also a nice size. There were 2 porches, a propane grill, and picnic table. Two bedrooms were upstairs, but we didn't use them. There was a small TV with a good selection of TV channels to watch, gas fireplace and built-in dining bench, table and chairs plus a kitchen table. It was just so quiet and peaceful; a nice place to unwind after a long day in the valley.

We had good cell reception with our Verizon phones. It took about 10-15 minutes to get to Yosemite Valley once we got used to the roads. Compared to the other motels we passed coming into the Park our first day, and out of the Park when we left on a different route, we were so glad we had chosen to stay here. The mountain drive you would have to make each day to get into and out of the Valley or to go to Glacier Point, etc., would have been much longer and miserable.

We would stay here again. The owners were very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

What a fantastic trip!

  • 5 of 5

Used El Cap View as our base for a week of day hikes and it was perfect. This was my first trip to Yosemite and I was not disappointed. Doe was awesome with communication before our arrival. Location inside the park was perfect, no lines for us. The home has all you'll need. We cooked inside and outside on the gas grill. We enjoyed our mornings and evenings on the back deck and front porch. Total quiet. Drove five minutes to a great overlook of Yosemite Valley for sunsets and sunrises. This cottage is perfect for hikers as it is convenient to all the "must do" trails. Doe even gave me a lift to Yosemite Valley one morning so that I could rent a bike and do the tour on my own as others in my party were going the other direction for the day. I know taxi service was not in the agreement but it was much appreciated on this day. Come here! Stay here!

PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

THIS WAS A PERFECT PLACE TO LAND AFTER A DAY OF HIKING. QUIET AND PEACEFUL. THE BACK PORCH WAS GREAT FOR 5 AM COFFEE AND END OF DAY TO REVIEW THE DAYS HIKE AND CHOOSE THE NEXT DAY HIKES. WE STARTED OUR HIKING DAYS EARLY TO AVOID THE GROWDS. NICE TO BE OUT OF THE VALLEY WHERE ALL THE PEOPLE ARE. THIS CABIN GAVE US GREAT ACCESS TO BOTH SIDES OF PARK FOR HIKING. PERFECT LOCATION. WE WERE IN BED SO EARLY (BEFORE DARK) SO STAR GAZING WAS SOMETHING WE MISSED OUT ON (TOO TIRED). THE OWNERS HAD GOOD NOTES FOR EVERYTHING IN THE HOUSE. THANKS FOR MAKING OUR GIRLS HIKING TRIP WONDERFUL. PERFECT!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The attention to detail is beyond belief, the house is immaculate and beautiful, well stocked, included almost every amenity, even satellite TV and it became a fun game to find all the " Craft Bears" around the house and outside. Even the towels were folded in a way you would expect from a Luxury Hotel.

The location is perfect IMHO, you are away from it all in a private setting yet can see El Capitan from the back yard/porch, you are in the Yosemite Valley in minutes, or at the Crane Flat Gas Station/store.

The owners are very helpful, professional and nice.

I truly wish I could do it justice in my words, we will return here when going to Yosemite in the future as I know after much research it is the best fit for us, and more than likely others too.

Great rental- amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed in this rental comfortably for a week. We found that the house was clean and welcoming. It was about 15 minutes from yosemite valley and we enjoyed the peace and quiet in the evenings. We had many meals at the table outside taking in the view. I had an amazing vacation and some of my memories will include relaxing at the house after a great day.

Heavenly Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation ever. Yosemite was awe inspiring. Around each turn, the level of amazement kept getting better and better. The house was very convenient to the Park and a home away from home. It was very clean, comfortable, and spacious. The full kitchen and gas grill made eating many of the meals more economical. The owners were very gratious and helpful in planning our trip. Can't wait to go back.
