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.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight, spanning three generations, had a great time at Copper Bear Lodge. Easy to access all the sights of Yosemite and the house was beautifully appointed and comfortable. Would highly recommend to any group looking for a base camp to explore the area.

the best vacation rental i've ever stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

The reviews don't do justice! The house is perfect for kids and adults. My fam stayed here during winter holidays and we had a blast.

In summary

- Best location to visit Yosemite.

- the house is incredible, everything works, incredibly equipped and lots of attention to details.

- the owners are super helpful and will respond immediately if you need them.

The only comment i would have is that there are lots of hunting decorations (deer antlers, furs, etc.) and some kids may get scared (mine seemed ok with them...) .

Overall, if you book this house you will NOT regret it!

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.
