About Jill

Hi, my name is Jill. My husband, Darrell, and I have owned Huff and Puff Cottage since 1998. In 2006 a large addition to our home was built and the Cottage was completely remodeled. In 2016 a second bathroom was also added to the Cottage.

We love our life in the Sierra Mountains where the beauty of nature can be seen everywhere.

We've done our best to insure that our guests find HUFF AND PUFF COTTAGE absolutely perfect a wonderfully memorable vacation!

Reserve your visit NOW!

Jill purchased this house in 1998

Why Jill chose Oakhurst

This is a very convenient location, only three miles from downtown Oakhurst on well maintained roads.

What makes this house unique

Huff and Puff Cottage is a private, spacious, secluded and separate duplex off the main house. A wonderful refuge after a busy days explorations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the Huff and Puff! It's so nice to hope that the accomodations you rent are as nice as the photos, only to find when you get there that it is NICER than the pictures!! Everything we could need was there....."Borrow" the chairs and bring them with you into Yosemite...Great to have for little "stopovers" or breaks to sit and read your book in beautiful surroundings. Thank you for everything!!

Nice place but owner did not refund full deposit

  • 3 of 5

Owner did not refund our whole deposit because she is claiming we damaged her ceiling fan.... a ceiling fan we never used because we only used the AC.

Great hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

She had everything you could ever think of for a successful trip to Yosemite. She welcomed us when we first came in. She lives in the adjacent duplex home. She has toys/games for kids and adults, toiletries, all the cooking utensils, and the place feels very homey. Enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend!

Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I used this place as a "base of operations" for a long weekend at Bass Lake and Yosemite. My sister joined us for a few nights so that we could run in the Yosemite Half Marathon (which was actually at Bass Lake). The cottage was absolutely perfect. The location was great, and Jill clearly has the gift of hospitality. The beds and furniture were quite comfortable, too! Jill made it very easy for us: she met us on arrival, showed us the cottage, and provided us with lots of information about local attractions. We all agreed that we would definitely stay here again!
