The owners have thought of everything here. Beautifully maintained and cared for, this home is in complete harmony with the majestic surroundings. It's the perfect place to reconnect with your family. Just to give you an idea of how thoughtful the owners are: when our trip was unfortunately cut short, we left a few things behind, including my son's lovey....

We (two families) stayed at the Alpenglow Chalet for 4 nights in August 2009. The property was exactly as described on the website. The beds in in the 3 bedrooms were fine, the sofabed in the den a little less comfortable. The house has an extremely well equipped kitchen (with labels on the drawers so everything is easy to find),...

Clouds Rest Cabin was better than we imagined. The place is immaculately clean and the owner, Noreen, has thought of absolutely EVERYTHING you could ever need in a home away from home. We were totally surprised and delighted! The cabin is located in Foresta which is about a 20 minute drive from Yosemite Valley. Although the drive can be tedious...

El Capitan View is a perfect holiday home for a group of 4-6 people. It is spacious and has lots of self-catering facilities, including a gas BBQ and lovely outside deck area. It is located in a very quiet, peaceful and scenic area with easy access to all the National Park has to offer. I would definitely recommend this house....

We stayed in Alpenglow house in Foresta in Yosemite. This was our third trip to Yosemite and certainly not the last. The house was perfect for what has become fours groups in our family with husbands, wife and kids. We lacked for nothing and the ease of getting around Yosemite was relaxing. If you want something other than the camping...

We rented Clouds Rest from May 29 until June 6th. It was perfect for 2 people! Noreen and Mark have done a wonderful job. This is the best equipped home I have ever rented anywhere! They thought of everything! Their website does NOT do it justice! She had Pam, olive oil, vegetable oil, Emeril's spices, etc for cooking. Then they...

I reserved the El Capital View house last August to accommodate a group of 5 ladies. I had read the description on the website and decided it would be a good choice for us. We were all very impressed when we arrived. The house was extremely clean and beautifulyfurnished. It had every amenity we could ask for. The location was...

I have stayed everywhere that Yosemite has to offer since the early 60's, and as much as I would like to keep this gem to a few people... well... you know. Clouds Rest is an amazing place that allows you to come to touch those places inside of each of us that seem so far away in your everyday life....

Cloud's Rest is absolutely the best rental we've ever had (and we travel a lot). The pictures on their website (use google) makes it look nice, but it's even nicer than the pictures. Located, within Yosemite about 15 minutes from Yosemite Valley, there are distant views of Half Dome and El Capitan from the porch, dining room, and bedroom. The...

Yosemite Vacation Homes are a number of privately owned cabins approximately 7 miles from the valley. We stayed in CLOUD'S REST in March 2004. Noreen and Mark, the owners could not have been more helpful. The cabin consisted of a fully equipped kitchen, lounge, luxury bathroom and huge bedroom. It took about ten minutes to drive into the valley and...
