Mary Ann Murphy House - 09/14/17 thru 09/17/17

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and kept up. Despite being in a mountainous location her detailed directions made it easy to find. Excellent location inside Yosemite National Park! She was prompt in returning our security deposit in full. Easy check-out procedure. Plenty of information was available at the house on activities in the area and location of amenities such as gas, groceries, restaurants, etc. It was an excellent vacation experience! However, the picture exposing the front of the house on the website should be updated since many of the trees surrounding it have been logged out.

Owner's Response: The trees were just cut down last month and I am looking for someone to "clean up" (remove the down trees) yard before I have more pictures taken. I understand the disappointment

Nice cabin at Yosemite

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a very pleasant stay at Yosemite. The cabin is spacious and great for families. Yosemite West is a quiet residential community with beautiful views of the mountains and a pleasant drive to the valley floor. Close to Glacier Point for fantastic views and hikes. Wifi is not available and garbage removal is not convenient due to bear problems, but overall a very nice stay.

Perfect location and very nice and well equipped house

  • 4 of 5

We did really enjoy our stay in Yosemite West. The house provides everything you need for some pleasant vacation days. It is well equipped and clean. Mary was very responsiveness and friendly. There are a few minor things that could be improved e.g. barbecue grill but all in all a great location we would choose again.

Merced River in Yosemite Valley
Car: necessary

My vacation home is located inside Yosemite park eliminating the need to wait in line for re-entry. It is among the closest accommodations to the major attractions such as Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, Wawona Golf Course, the Mariposa Grove (which is closed for Restoration till July 2017) and various trail heads. I allow 30 minutes to get down to the Valley a little longer to get to the Golf Course, When I go to the Mariposa Grove I'll park my car at the Wawona store and take the shuttle bus.

I would advise anyone staying in Yosemite West and preparing their own meals, to do their grocery shopping before they enter the park. There are grocery stores in the Valley and at the Wawona store but most of the prices are higher.

Then there are restaurants, from the dining room at the Ahwahnee to the pizza deck in Curry Village

IF at all possible I would recommend one stays at least a week because there is so much to do. In the Valley I would recommend parking your car in the Day Use Parking then taking the free shuttle bus around.

A popular place is the Ahwahnee, a 4 diamond hotel which was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. Dinning used to require a jacket for men but has eased up on that tradition and now collard shirts for men and woman may wear dress or slacks and blouse. Historic Ahwahnee Tours are also available.

The visitor center is a must stop. The staff is always helpful with how to plan your stay in Yosemite. They can also tell you about the ranger's program and Interpretive walks

There's a bookstore and museum near by.

There's the Ansel Adams Gallery which offers photography workshops and a camera walk (class size & availability are limited).

You are in Bear country which means food may only be inside your car (out of sight, widows completely closed) during daylight hours. Remember to clear your car of food wrappers, crumbs in baby seats, and baby wipes. Even canned food and drinks must be removed from your car.
