“Great Home Base for Trips Into Yosemite!”
Reviewed June 3, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

My parents had never been to Yosemite before and they were coming out to visit me in Palo Alto at the peak of waterfall season. The opportunity was too good to pass up, so we planned a long weekend trip to the park and spent lovely three nights at the Yosemite Country Cottage.

First of all, Charles was an excellent host. He communicated very well during the booking/reservation process, and was full of helpful tips and suggestions both while we were planning our trip and after we arrived at the house. He's worked in the park and lived in the area for many years, and all of his suggestions about where to find parking, what trails to take, and where to eat were spot on!

Second, the house is really in an ideal location for trips into the park. It's only 15 minutes away from Mariposa, which has plenty of shops and restaurants, as well as a full service grocery store. The selection and prices are excellent, so there's no need to buy groceries in advance. The house is also only about an hour away from Yosemite Valley via CA-140 - not that far at all, and the drive into the park is incredibly scenic and the time flies by. Our first evening at the house, we made a quick trip to Tunnel View after checking in and were able to watch the sunset over the Valley. Truly spectacular!

Finally, the house itself was clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. Very spacious and cheery, with lots of natural light. All of the beds were comfortable and everything was in working order. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub and watching the stars at night, and also used the grill to cook dinner one evening. We all had good reception and 4G on Verizon so the lack of Internet wasn't a problem, though it can sometimes be nice to unplug. There was a TV with a cable box, but we didn't even turn it on for the same reason.

Overall, we had a fantastic visit and are looking forward to coming back again soon! We would definitely stay at the Yosemite Country Cottage again and can heartily recommend it to anyone else who is planning a trip to the area.

“Very comfortable stay in this lovely cottage with our daughter and son-in-law.”
Reviewed May 30, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This location allowed us to prepare our own breakfast, prepare lunch to take on a hike, and to come back and soak in the hot tub!

Charles was a great source of resources for enjoying the area. Too bad the afternoons were always cloudy or rainy, as we couldn't see the sunsets on all the beautiful locations. Did see one Alpine Glow across from the cottage, pointed out to us from Charles.

“Perfect for our first visit to Yosemite!”
Reviewed May 5, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

My family of 5 adults was looking for a quiet, private, away from people place to stay for our first visit to Yosemite. This house fit the bill exactly. The lovely town of Mariposa - for groceries and gas - is only 10 minutes away. This "cottage" is just a stone's throw off the main road - but happily very tranquil and peaceful. The house fit the bill for our family. The pictures don't do it justice - it is even roomier than it appears in the pictures. After our days in Yosemite, we picked up fresh steaks one night and fresh chicken the next for grilling..Charles was very knowledgeable about Yosemite and the area, and only a phone call or text message away if we needed anything..A wonderful family experience and a great start for our California road trip!

Super clean, great location and private. The house is just wonderful with all kinds of bells and whistles. The kitchen has every gadget and utensil you can imagine, better than my own home!

Wonderful fireplace and great layout. The views around the house are awesome too. We saw turkey in the front yard as extra bonus. Kids loved the hot tub

Charles provided so many nice things to do and see in the park. You don’t need a tour guide , just ask Charles

Five stars !!!!!

“Incredibly Thoughtful”
Reviewed January 7, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

If the words, "meticulous, organized, thoughtful, labeled,peaceful, clean, and comfortable" are important to you when looking for a vacation rental, then Charles and Lisa have you in mind. All of ours wants, needs, and questions were addressed and taken care of. I believe they expect/deserve the same in return. Our complete deposit was returned more promptly than l expected, too. We could not have been more comfortable and happy with our accommodations in the Yosemite area. We would definitely like to return again.

“Well cared for, exceptionally clean, peaceful, beautiful home!”
Reviewed November 29, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The Yosemite Country Cottage, in Midpines was perfect in all aspects! The location was close to Yosemite National Park and the scenic Merced River. The home was very clean, well stocked, quiet, private, and close to an excellent restaurant - Yosemite Bug. The hot tub was amazing! We would highly recommend Yosemite Country Cottage. Thank you Charles & Lisa!
