We booked a house, Edelweiss, at a great price. On the way in from San Fran., we stopped in Oakdale and got our food, wine, and beer for the three day stay. House was very clean and comfortable, and quiet. We used the BBQ to grill dinners, and prepared all our meals there. Noticed that a burger was going for $14.00 at the Valley floor. Yosemite is a big park, so it is a 20 minute drive to the Valley floor, but if you want to go to Glacier Point, or Maripossa Grove, or Wanona, you're close also. Since the house is on the hill, it is a climb to the front door. I would stay here again.
