About the property

Luxury Split-Level Cottage For 2+, Cal King, HDTV, WiFi, whirlpool tub for two

The Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is a Craftsman style private Guest House with the best privacy and views in the area. Our excellent reviews relate our high standards for quality and service.

The Mountain Hideaway is full of designer grade appointments with CAL King bed, whirlpool bathtub, full kitchen, dining room, and private deck with barbecue. The Hideaway has central air conditioning for a perfect summer retreat.

The comfortable living room includes remote control fireplace, HD satellite TV with networks, cable news, HBO, ESPN's, and Sirrius radio.

There is WiFi from satellite internet. It is limited to standard email and browsing the web. To provide internet access for each guest we suggest no internet video and the daily data on WiFi is limited to 300MB per day for guests.

A full kitchen and breakfast bar is provided with all the cookware, plates and utensils you'll need for a quick breakfast or gourmet meal. It's complete with gas stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The dining area is surrounded by 180 degree mountain views.

The luxurious bath suite includes a 6' whirlpool bathtub for 2, Italian marble shower, radiant floor heat and morning light through private windows. The Hideaway is located in a forested mountain community within the gates of Yosemite Park.

The Hideaway is a luxury house for 2 but can accommodate up to 3 with the extra guests sleeping on a portable mattress on the floor in the living room area. Our property is a unique home and may not be suitable for children under 4 yrs old due to open stairs, fireplace and steep mountain terrain surrounding the Hideaway. There is a $25 or $35 (depending on the season) per night, per extra guest for the 3rd person or child staying at our cottage. The floor plan is an open design with bedroom above the living room.

Weeklong stays include use of the laundry room in the cottage. A touch-up cleaning is also included with week stays.

Check-in is at 4pm and check-out is 11am. We will accommodate other check-in requests if possible. Plan on additional time to drive thru the Park to arrive at the Hideaway.

Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is located at 6000' elevation in Yosemite West. This unique community is located within the gates of the Park with the best central location for day tripping to Yosemite Valley, Badger Pass Ski, Glacier Point, Wawona and the Big Trees.

The high county of Toulumne Meadows is a 90 minute drive thru mountain vistas, high alpine lakes and forests of giant sequoia trees.

There is access to walking or mountain biking forest roads from the Hideaway. Skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are a short drive to Glacier Point where you can rent all the gear you need for an epic winter adventure.

Cell service is very good for Verizon and Golden State with 3G service from the Hideaway. There is no Cell service for other carriers. Sorry it's a remote mountain location. A land-line telephone with local service is included and you may use your calling card.

CAUTION: Winter travel thru the park requires all cars/trucks to carry snow chains. Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is located on a steep access road where winter snows may require special parking conditions. Please email or call with snow condition access questions.

We look forward to hearing from you, Melissa and Jeff

Yosemite Mountain Hideaway is a luxury cottage with everything we needed. It's private, quiet and comfortable. Great location for the Park. My girl loved the decor and the jacuzzi tub for two was great

Fantastic stay, unbelievable location

  • 5 of 5

The Hideaway couldn't be a nicer place to stay in Yosemite. Melissa and Jeff couldn't be nicer people.

The Hideway is beautiful down to the smallest of details. The finishes are top quality, the view is amazing, and it will make your stay in Yosemite truly special. It is a short drive into Yosemite valley and the views on the drive make it something to look forward too. The Hideway gives you a lovely place to stay and your own escape after enjoying the many things to do in Yosemite valley. Decided to stay here over the Ahwahnee and I'm so glad that I did.

Fantastic cabin within the park

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible! It is well stocked with everything you may need. The owners provide a detailed notebook with lots of information (recommended hikes/activities, how to operate everything in the cabin, etc.), a fully stocked kitchen, extra toiletries in the bathroom, different sized blow-up beds complete with labeled bedding, as well as some snacks and a bottle of wine. I can't think of anything else the place may need. It is decorated beautifully and has an amazing unobstructed view of mountains and the sunset through all the windows at the back of the cabin or the balcony. The area was so quiet that we opened all the windows at night to enjoy the fresh air. Wish we could have stayed here for several weeks! I highly recommend this place for anyone heading to Yosemite.

Clean, quiet, and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great base camp for our hikes while my wife and I stayed in 2016. The kitchen was well equipped to cook food we carried in with us. The location was a very short drive to the valley and Taft Point (south rim of the valley).

Amazing property with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and nicely decorated. High end tiles, finishes and appliances. Such a great property I would highly recommend this to anyone! They knew we were celebrating my daughters birthday and left a bottle of wine for us.

Great accommodations but the stairs were more than expected

  • 4 of 5

The place was wonderful. It was clean and beautiful with wonderful views. The owners were quick to respond to our inquires. The one thing that was a bit of a surprise was the 52 steps down to the house from the parking pad. The listing did say that it was not handicap accessible but it could have warned of all those stairs. It is still a great place and we would stay there again but it would have been nice to know ahead of time.
