7 Miles to Badger Pass Ski Area & 15 Miles to Yosemite Valley Call for…
Welcome to Shepard’s Place, my modest mountain home in Yosemite. This one bedroom energy efficient home is located just 10 minutes from the valley floor in the quiet and secluded community of Foresta. Foresta is a small little known community located 30 minutes inside Yosemite National Park’s gates, tucked away from the busy park areas, but very close to the main attractions, only 10 minutes to Yosemite Valley from the home! This unique location provides an ideal home base for all of your Yosemite adventures. Take advantage of a rare opportunity to visit Yosemite without giving up the comforts of home, you’ll feel like a Yosemite local. These are by far the closest privately owned homes to Yosemite Valley, much closer than Wawona or Yosemite West, and a much less crowded as well.
This house also has a brand new mini-split air-conditioning and heating system so you can dial in the temperature in each room. The passive solar design makes climate control needs minimal, but during the cooler months you’ll want to take advantage of the radiant floor heating.
The house has WiFi and a strong 4G phone signal, which you will find is another rare amenity in Yosemite. Please keep in mind however that while most phone carriers have some coverage in Yosemite, Verizon is the only carrier with consistently strong service. For entertainment you’ll enjoy the large Roku TV with access to Netflix, Amazon or whatever streaming platform you prefer, as well as an excellent DVD collection. Enjoy the well-stocked library of books ranging from local history and biographies, to local art and Yosemite travel guides.
With this modern fully stocked kitchen you’ll find everything needed to prepare your own meals. The upstairs deck provides an excellent venue to enjoy your morning coffee, a relaxing sunset or an evening under the stars. The backyard opens up to Yosemite national park, walk in any direction from the house and you’re immediately immersed in nature. It’s not uncommon to see a herd of deer walking across the yard in the morning.
Shepard’s Place can sleep two people; there is a king size bed in the bedroom.
This home is new to the rental market in 2020 and dates are filling up fast, don’t wait to make your reservation!
