About the property

Great Home! 3 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6) 2.5 Acres - Plenty of room to run.

Just 25 miles from the northern entrance into Yosemite National Park, (an hour's drive to Yosemite valley) you will find yourself in a fully furnished home that is the perfect get away. It has an unobstructed view of a lovely 100 acre meadow and is in Stanislaus National forest. If you are looking for solitude, sunshiny days and starlet nights in the pines then you will love this home. At 3200 feet we’re just above the snow mark but below the blizzard line. We’re just ½ mile from the nearest grocery store or gas station and 10 minutes (8 miles) from Highway 120.

Our vacation property can accommodate 6+ comfortably. It has three bedrooms; master bedroom has a king size adjustable bed and a private full-bath. The two smaller bedrooms have queen beds and share a full-bath. Children or adventurous at heart could sleep on queen size air beds in a nicely finished garage area in the summer. (see pictures)

There is easy access to the house through the garage and front door. There is a deck across the back of the house and the setting is very private. There is access to internet and it has dish TV.

The large kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs and has granite throughout. It includes a large Island for cooking or eating. There is a gas BBQ grill in the back yard.

The hot tub is fabulous for relaxing anytime but especially under the stars at night. It has therapy jets for those tired muscles after a long day of sightseeing or hiking.

About Doug Dalton

Lori and I met while we were young and only 17 while attending college up in Idaho. Doug retired and we purchased this home in 2012 as our vacation dream home. We love it so much that we enjoy staying here whenever we can. The mountains are beautiful and it is very peaceful here. Lori and I have 5 children and 18 grand children with one on the way. We enjoy camping, traveling, but mostly just doing work around our homes.

and visiting with friends.

Resort like retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house came with so many activities it was like you were staying at your own personal resort. The activities included the fire pit, hot tub, bocce ball, teather ball, ladder ball, horseshoes, and golf clubs. It was the perfect location to relax on days we didn’t feel like taking the drive into Yosemite.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this perfect family vacation home. My only complaint was that we did not stay long enough! The home is well maintained, open and sunny with lots of great amenities for all to enjoy. We loved playing bocce and horseshoes and sitting on the swing. The front lawn was perfect for my morning qi gong practice and meditation. The hot tub was heavenly after a day at Yosemite. The drive to Yosemite Valley was long (1 hour 15 minutes) even in May when there was light traffic but it is a beautiful drive and we did not mind it but it is something to consider when picking a spot to stay. The kitchen and dining area worked out great for our family of 6 adults. I would definitely choose this home again when we return to Yosemite!

The house is beautiful and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

The house was very big and clean. The house was very well equipped from the kitchen all the way to the restrooms. The location is great for good for visiting Yosemite National Park. The view and location of the house was great and relaxing. In short words the house was perfect and the best part of the house was the camp fire outside.

luxurious and close to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Doug and Lori's home for a week during our trip to Yosemite and found that it was the most comfortable place we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. All the amenities provided made the place feel like home. The drive to the valley is roughly an hour. The beds were all comfortable, there were 4 of us and there were plenty of space. The house was extremely clean, organized, and well cared for. We enjoyed grilling out in the yard and made several delicious meals that way. The wifi was fast considering how far away we were from everything. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Doug and Lori but they left a very detailed instruction book with all the information we needed and even recommendations of things to do. We followed their tip to go to Rainbow Pool and so glad that we did. We would stay here again in a heartbeat when we go back to Yosemite.
