And, the newly-remodeled kitchen features a gas range and everything you need to create a lovely vacation meal, including dish washer for easy clean up. Our full size washer and dryer is in a separate room just off the kitchen and easily accessible.

Adjoining the great room there is a large bedroom with a queen size bed and a full bath. Our full size sofa sleeper and two roll away beds give you comfortable sleeping for 6. A half bath is available.

Our great room has two sliding glass doors, one opening up to your outdoor deck with bar-b-q and one that opens to your private all weather enclosed deck with table and chairs for dining, enjoying a glass of wine, playing games or planing your next Yosemite adventure.

Best vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this lovely cabin in the woods for a vacation to Yosemite. The owner is absolutely fantastic and is very attentive to every single detail. The house has lovely charm. It is well-stocked with everything you'll ever need including games, fireplace and wood, modern Wi-Fi, and a fully stocked kitchen. We would stay there again in a heartbeat !

Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is adorable. All the necessities and some extras are provided. Nora responded very quickly and when we left a jacket behind even shipped it to us at no charge. We got engaged at Yosemite overlooking the valley, and Nora's retreat was the perfect place to come back to as a home base.

private....off the beaten path....yosemite getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Nora for the use of your charming home. It was perfect for us after spending the day in Yosemite National Park. It was nice to have some comforts of home instead of the usual...boring....hotel/motel stay. House was clean. Very spacious. Had wifi to use and satellite tv. Lots of DVD's if you would rather watch a movie. We grilled some steaks and drank some wine and just relaxed. Thank you again.

A sweet stay at Nora's retreat{aka} Owl Haven was really.down to earth hospitality!

  • 4 of 5

A lot of attention to comfort . A real feeling of life in the high Sierra. Charming and well maintained. It was what we were looking for as a get away and enjoy Yosemite Valley. We enjoyed grilling outside and dining on the deck in a screen sheltered area. Protection from mosquitos and bees was a real plus. Lots of details to comfort, a well stocked kitchen. The crockpot served us well. Coming back after hiking in the park to a pot of Chili was heavenly. We would definitely consider returning to Nora's nest. Sincerely Joy, Mario and Claudia Caligiuri
