About the property

In addition to the gorgeous appeal, this home was designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible including convenient parking and access. The home is a rare single-story property which can accommodate guests of all ages. There are about 10 steps from the parking area, leading down to the entrance. Both restrooms offer double sinks and separate toilet and shower areas. The master suite features a king-size bed, while the middle bedroom has two sets of twin-over-twin bunk beds, as well as a High Definition TV in case the children would like to have their own space to play video games or watch a movie. The front bedroom has a queen bed decorated with vintage décor, while the living room features a vaulted cottage-style plank ceiling, river rock fireplace and a 60" 4K TV, complete with Blu-Ray player and satellite cable. The distressed dining table allows comfortable seating for 8 people. The fully stocked kitchen boasts a stylish farmhouse sink, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and beadboard cabinets. Additionally, there is a dining table on the rear deck if you prefer to dine al fresco or simply wish to enjoy the mountain air and forest view. There is a gas BBQ if you would like to grill. The covered front porch features two very comfortable rocking chairs, perfect for sipping your morning coffee or tea.

This property is located INSIDE the gates of Yosemite National Park and is centrally located to many of the popular destinations including Yosemite Valley (20 minutes), Badger Pass Ski Area (15 minutes) and Wawona (20 minutes). For larger groups (up to 20 people), consider renting this home in conjunction with The River Rock Retreat, which is just a stone's throw away.

This cabin has 2 parking spots during fall, winter, and spring months. During summer there are 3 parking spots.

The Craftsman Cottage is a very special home, and will make your Yosemite experience the vacation of a lifetime.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, spacious and very clean. Yosemite destinations were close by. The area is very quiet. I would love to stay here again. To future renters who may arrive late at night, make sure to bring the property map as the roads are confusing when you are tired and it is dark outside.

Beautiful Mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Craftsman Cottage for a week and loved the house. The house is very clean, bright and well decorated with a lot of attention to detail. We appreciated that the entire house had "hardwood" floors, so there were no dirty carpets (as we've found in other VRBO rentals). The house is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. We enjoyed the fireplace with the gas starter and the grill on the deck. We appreciated that the house was stocked with a few basic supplies that were enough to last our entire stay: coffee, hot chocolate, TP, Kleenex, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, kitchen bags. One caveat: the drive to the nearest store, gas station, restaurant, Yosemite valley and the nearest town is down a winding (but very scenic) mountain road, so those not familiar with mountain driving will want to be home by dark. The only improvement we would make to the house is covering the exterior windows in the showers with privacy film and putting draperies on the living room windows for privacy. Otherwise, we found the house to be perfect, and the rental company was very helpful, responsive, and easy to deal with.

Clean and beautiful but no air conditioner

  • 4 of 5

Very beautiful house/kitchen with everything you need for cooking. However there is no air conditioner. It is very hot from noon to dawn. Two of us have to sleep in the living room because the room is very hot. The wifi is not working either which is fine with us since we have tried to spend more time enjoying the beauty of the nature.

FYI for those people who rely on wifi a lot: we did contact the property manager regarding the wifi and they respond quickly. They came to check the connection quickly for which we appreciate so much but the wifi is still not working the whole stay. They offer the free wifi at their office site but the connection/signal is very weak and unstable.

Beautiful Home In A Quiet Setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely home with all amenities you need for a relaxed stay. The home is one story; however, the entry does have about 12 steps to access the house that could be challenging for anyone with a disability. The rooms were large and the kitchen is well appointed and light and bright. It is close to the attractions in Yosemite Valley (about 15-20 mins). We were there with 5 adults and 2 children under 12. The rooms were ideal for the size of our party and the two bathrooms were very appreciated. Thank you for a lovely stay.
