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. Relax in wooden rockers on the front deck after hiking or sightseeing all day. Play pool, arcade, or board games in the loft. Large selections of DVDs. Fully equipped kitchen for cooking and baking. Home decor gives you the full mountain experience.

First choice for Yosemite with the family

  • 5 of 5

Between Steve (the owner) and the property itself, this was hands down the right way to see yosemite. You are inside the park, 15 mins from the valley floor, in a lovely private home.

We just wrapped up a two week road trip with 4 nights here and couldn't have had a better time/experience. Thank you Steve!

Only warning, buy your groceries before entering the park. We did, on Steve's advise, but don't make the mistake and decide you'll do fine without doing so.

I'm going to do this again!

Beautifully Appointed and very warm environment !

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful and felt like home right away. It has everything you need and more for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. My adult children, who flew in from the East coast, truly enjoyed the pool table and National Park DVD collection. Would definitely stay here again for future Yosemite trips. We had a wonderful time.

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.
