Bette and Ron have been residents and lovers of Yosemite area for more than 50 years. We have hiked, backpacked and climbed peaks both inside and outside the national park. Ron is an accomplished photographer and retired architect - and Bette's background is as a Silicon Valley Human Resources professional. We love sharing the delight of being in the heart of the mountains with all our friends -- old and new!
A spacious home with two available bedroom units, each with its own private bath, just two miles from the South Gate to Yosemite National Park - delightful, architecturally - designed spaces. Setting is just off main highway to Park and adjacent to Sierra National Forest. Our house grew from a simple wood frame cabin (circa 1946) to a spacious mountain retreat on 3 levels - a mixture of contemporary classic with 'tones' of yesteryear.
Our residence is spacious, has lots of light, lovely outdoor spaces - patio, balcony on the 'national forest' side of the house, and additional patio and hammock in the front yard. There is a shared family room, with TV/DVD and lots of guidebooks - with information about surrounding places of interest. Our desire is to have your experience be warm and inviting - and for you to feel that you are a welcome guest.
Each guest, in addition to their room and bathroom, is welcome to use the family room and outdoor spaces. Breakfast is served in the dining room each morning. Coffee or tea are available each morning.
As experienced hikers, Ron and Bette are both avid "Yosemite Lovers" and are quite knowledgeable about the Park and surrounding areas. We can provide lots of ideas and information about places nearby -- including some 'off the beaten track' options to enjoy!
