Overview

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

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.

Perfect Yosemite getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Hideway for our anniversary weekend. So glad we chose this place! Jeff and Melissa were very helpful from the minute we booked, and were great in terms of answering our questions and providing all the information we needed before arriving.

The cottage is just beautiful and located inside Yosemite Park about 35 min drive to Yosemite Village and Half Dome Village. Melissa and Jeff have done an absolutely wonderful job of considering every detail and amenity that makes this such a special cottage. From the beautiful architecture, to the warm and cozy fireplace, well appointed kitchen, comfortable king bed, heated bathroom floor, and of course the back patio/BBQ with stunning views, we could not have asked for more.

I would recommend bringing groceries for dinner and preparing meals at the cottage, as the drive to and from Yosemite Village restaurants is over an hour of windy roads round trip. But quite frankly, the cottage has such pleasant ambiance that we preferred dining in anyway. Day trips into Yosemite Village were easy, though, and the scenery along the drive is stunning!

If you are planning a trip to Yosemite, I wholeheartedly recommend staying here. You will love it! We plan to return, and will be recommending the Hideaway to friends and family as well.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations! Beautiful, cozy, and quiet! We really enjoyed cooking in the cabin after a day in the valley. The snacks and bottle of wine was a very nice touch. The view from the balcony was spectacular. Great place to get away and enjoy the scenery!

Absolutely Gorgeous Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Yosemite Hideaway exceeded all our expectations. It's located conveniently for a drive into various sites in Yosemite yet secluded and away from the crowds. The cottage itself is beautifully built and appointed with everything we needed to relax, cook, and enjoy our time in the mountains. The owners put much thought into all the details and amenities and we felt very welcomed and pampered. Would whole heartedly recommend this place! Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Really well equipped, lovely location for hiking in the Park. Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because it looked quiet and was in a good location for starting hikes at Glacier point and Yosemite valley. It was perfect in every respect. Very well appointed, super kitchen and facilities to make meals. We really wanted a break from eating out and hotel breakfasts! The owners were super helpful before we came answering all our questions. They were happy to answer any queries we once we arrived . We were so pleased we stayed there. We would recommend it to any of our friends wanting a self catering option in the Park.

Cozy and perfect

  • 4 of 5

It was such an adorable and perfect little cottage to arrive to for the start of our honeymoon. We were greeted with a welcoming note, some little snacks, and clean sheets to fall asleep into after a very long day of travel. The decor and ambiance of the cottage was wonderful. The bathroom had all the amenities including heated floors. Which was amazing. We loved coming home each night and cuddling by the fire.
