Natalie's place was absolutely beautiful. The location was so quiet and the room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was right next door to the bedroom and was also spotlessly clean with everything you need. Natalie/John served up a light breakfast and coffee in the mornings which was great. The location was perfect for visiting Yosemite (as long as you have a car). Thank you for a lovely stay.

A very comfortable stay. Most welcoming and thoughtful hosts. Beautiful rural location with wildlife in the garden, but with easy access to town.

Natalie was a fantastic host and her home made for an ideal stay for our visit to Yosemite national park. Natalie's place was well equipped and she was always on hand to answer questions and also provided a delicious breakfast. I would gladly stay with her again. Thanks again Natalie!

I'm a retired high school English/Spanish teacher and part time nonfiction writer. I love books, enjoy cooking and would love to one day visit all our national parks. I also love kayaking, hiking and a good cup of coffee. I've traveled throughout the U.S., Mexico, Europe and Asia…
