This newly-built Craftsman style home is the perfect place to make your Yosemite vacation truly unforgettable. Inside and out, you will be stunned by the charm of this home, the attention to fine detail, and the light and airy feel you experience throughout. The interior is decorated in a charming cottage style, beautifully modern yet with a vintage feel. After a day exploring the wonders in Yosemite, imagine coming back to relax in a home that is worthy of this spectacular national park.

The space

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

Staying at this place was a DREAM! We had a group of 5 stay here, but it'd still be plenty of space for up to 8. The location could not be better. Staying inside the park and this close to the sights was a game changer, especially in the winter when you have to take it slow on the roads with snow chains. It allowed us to see so much during our short stay since we didn't have to spend hours in the car getting in and out of the park. If you're only visiting Yosemite for a weekend, pay more to stay close. It's worth it!! The house was beautiful, clean, comfy, and open. Everything was as pictured -- very modern, well kept, and spacious. Beautiful decor, comfy/clean beds, and 2 double-sink bathrooms were good for a large group. We bought groceries for the weekend and cooked all our meals here and made lunches to have on hand while we spent the day in the park. The cooking items & utensils in the kitchen were great quality and there was plenty to go around. Special thanks to Issac for accommodating our group last minute. A plumbing issue came up on our original rental spot and he offered this space to us as an upgrade. Thank you!!! Note on wifi -- there is no wifi at this unit as the description states. Those of us who had AT&T and T-mobile had zero service at the house. Those who has Verizon had intermittent service at the house. We all had service in a few places throughout Yosemite Valley though, so if you need to connect, don't worry. You'll have your chance as you make your way through the park so you can Instagram that tunnel view shot ;)

This brand new modern home is beautiful inside and out. The floor plan is open, the furniture and decorations are new, contemporary, and warm. The kitchen comes with everything you need for cooking and entertaining. The rear deck is nice, and furnished with table and chairs. During the day we enjoyed the view of the forest while BBQing and eating on the rear deck, and at nights staring at the sky as the stars seem amazingly close. Great area to take a walk and enjoy the views. The location is very close to the ski area and not far from the Yosemite Valley. We really enjoyed our stay there. The rating is definitely a big 5. We will rent it again and will recommend it to our friends.

The Craftsman Cottage surpassed all of my expectations. This brand new 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home comfortably fit 8 guests and came furnished with all the necessities of home. I rented this property for a weekend reunion with friends from Los Angeles. We purchased groceries in Oakhurst for the weekend and placed a table for dinner for 8 each night—and the table fit us perfectly! This home made entertaining guests easy. Located just half an hour drive from Yosemite Valley made day trips convenient. The sheer stunning beauty that surrounds this home is impressive and fostered a complete change in attitude and mindset for everyone on this trip. With a rather large deck attached to the dining area complete with a BBQ, chairs, and table, a lot of time was spent stargazing as well. Overall, I give this property a 5/5 on all fronts and will definitely rent here again.

Beautiful home and very comfortable. Clean and well presented.

This house was fantastic, we enjoyed the visit completely. Do note that there is no wifi at the location, and there are not many services near the lodge so bring all the supplies and food you need. The house was well stocked with coffee and hot cocoa! We loved everything about the location.

Great place to stay. Some initial contact problems partly due to IOS Airbnb app. House true to photos. Lots of light, clean, modern and warm. Would recommend highly. Close proximity to Valley facilities

Yosemite Park is a part of my life, it's my second home. As a child I enjoyed badger pass ski resort, mountain climbing, lots of hiking, fishing, and the wildlife, the park has been my backyard my whole life. I learned a lot from visitors from all over the country, and overseas. I enjoy traveling myself, I also grew up surfing, skating, and kayaking, I'm an adventurer. My favorite vacations were staying in a villas, beach houses, lodges, and enjoying the area. I hope to bring that to my guests as well. Come, enjoy one of my cabins, as your home in Yosemite!
