This accommodation is just what you want to experience the area. It is located just outside the Southern entrance of Yosemite--within a few minutes of the one of the larger towns in the area, Oakhurst, where you can find large grocery stores and restaurants, shopping and even some art galleries. The southern entrance is in my opinion the most beautiful introduction to Yosemite. At this entrance, your first view of Yosemite is the stunning tunnel view lookout. The town of Wawona and the Mariposa grove of giant Sequoias are also nearest this entrance. It is by far easiest and most scenic drive into the Yosemite Valley. The Homestead, while tucked away and peaceful, is as convenient as any any lodging located outside of the valley floor itself as there is always a 30 -45 minute drive involved to get to the valley floor . The hoemstead is a welcome place to return after a long day of exploring the area.
Our cottage, the Garden cottage, was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and such a lovely little place to stay.. It seems Larry and Cindy have thought of everything. I think you would be hard pressed to need anything that is not alreay provided, but I got the impression if you did they would find a way to provide it if you asked. If you have time to watch TV there are 60 plus satellite tv and radio channels in your room but better entertainmetn is the little seating area off the porch to watch the starry sky. The grounds are beatiful and well maintained with a BBQ area, fully stocked kitchen and a cozy gas fireplace that turns on with just flip of a switch. The value compared to other loding in the area is superior.
Larry and Cindy are so knowlegeable about the area and will share their love for the area with you in such a generous and kind manner. Since cell reception is spotty in the area they have even provided a free landline at the main checkout for
