A 42-inch flat screen television and blu-ray are available for watching a movie. The kitchen is fully equipped. The dining table can seat approximately ten to twelve. Phone for unlimited local calls. The home is surrounded by dogwoods, maples, large white firs, pine, and cedar. The home has two queen beds, two twin beds, and two bunk beds (one with trundle).

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

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.

We were not disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at Copper Bear Lodge in August 2016. My only issue is that we did not plan to stay longer. The home is everything and more than you see in the pictures and description. We were absolutely in awe of this beautiful home and felt honored to be allowed to rent it. The owners prepare the home with great care and consideration for their guest. They truly go above and beyond to welcome their guest and keep the home well stocked and in perfect condition. We had stopped for groceries before arriving and several of the items we bought were provided in the pantry by the owner. To save you time and money If you plan to cook while at the home I would suggest asking the owner about certain staples that may already be in the home. The home was in the perfect location for most everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed several hikes and star gazing adventures in the area of Glacier point, the home was just a short drive from this area. It was a bit further to drive to Yosemite Valley, we found it nice to be staying in a home that was away from the crowds in that area. This home is just as much a part of the destination as all of the beautiful sites of Yosemite. We consider ourselves blessed to have stayed at Copper Bear Lodge. If your time allows stay at least a week, you will not be disappointed.

Exceptional Home, Location and Attention to Detail!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Copper Bear Lodge in early July 2016 with two families and loved the house and location! The house is very spacious, has a gorgeous kitchen, filled with amenities and is located in a top notch location in a culdesac in Yosemite West making it easy to travel within Yosemite. The owners have really taken care of every detail, very well organized, provided snack packs and various toiletries in each of the bathrooms. We loved the space, cooked in/grilled out every night, played games and really enjoyed the loft which had a pool table & multi-cade video game which were a huge hit with the kids! Also, Steve the owner was very easy to deal with and made the check in process very simple providing every detail for our stay.

A couple of things to note when planning your stay:

1. Internet was not available during our stay (owners acknowledged and working on options as they are limited in the area)

2. No laundry (due to water restrictions)

3. Bring in all your groceries (food and beverage) as the nearest place to shop is 30 minutes away.

Overall, the Copper Bear Lodge is an outstanding house, nestled in a beautiful location, perfect for visiting Yosemite and avoiding long traffic lines getting in and out of the park!

Thank you Copper Bear!

Gorgeous and comfortable home near Yosemite Valley

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four couldn't have been happier staying at Copper Bear Lodge during our first trip to Yosemite. As beautiful as the pictures are of this home, they do not do it justice. The woods outside the huge picture windows are lovely, making the porch with its comfortable rockers a wonderful place to read. The living areas and bedrooms are full of beautiful treasures from nature and lots of comfortable seating. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and the owners thoughtfully provide much more than the basic staples (true in the bath areas as well). There are lovely gift baskets in the kitchen and baths- we've never encountered that before in any home we've rented. It was actually hard to tear ourselves away from this beautiful home, even though amazing Yosemite beckoned. Thank you again to the owners for your delightful hospitality!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our time in this home was comfortable and delightful. It's beautifully appointed and the kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials. We loved the proximity to great hiking and enjoyed our time in front of the cozy fireplace and in the rockers on the front porch. The beds were comfortable and the environment peaceful and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again!

Amazing adventure

  • 5 of 5

We came to Yosemite to do Half Dome, but once we saw this incredible beauty, we had a hard time leaving!

An incredibly beautiful place - a little slice of heaven on earth. The details of the furnishing and the amenities that were included were a wonderful surprise. The organized kitchen is right up my alley. Everything is thought out for travelers comfort! And, the amount of thought and energy that went in to the special gifts - they were the buttercream frosting on the cake!
