This home is perfect for those who want an entire home close to Yosemite National Park (a 40 minute drive) but do not want to pay the high prices of housing within the park. You’ll love the peace and quiet and the beautiful views that the property offers. Good for couples, solo adventurers, families with kids and pets.

The space

As you step into the home, the limestone entry and charming country touches will capture your attention. This home can accommodate 6 guests with 3 whimsically decorated bedrooms - each with comfortable queen sized beds - and 2 full bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped to make delicious home cooked meals. On chilly nights, stay warm and toasty with the Vermont Wood Stove. After a long day at the park, relax on the couch and watch television which features DirectTV.

You won't find a better place to stay if visiting Yosemite via the El Portal gate. The hosts pay every attention to detail, and are so easy to communicate with. We give this Airbnb our highest recommendation. Quiet and lovely!!!

This house was awesome! We saw 2 deers on the way there and one was hanging around the house when we arrived! This street is called Sherlock for a reason, make sure to read the instructions before going. The house was super clean, we had everything needed and it's nicely located among the trees and it feels like there is no one living around. The only downside was it took an hour to get to the Yosemite gate plus 20+30 mins to trails. Besides that it is a great option.

Tchukon & Carolyn User ProfileTchukon & Carolyn is a superhost.

Originally from upstate New York, I moved to San Francisco in my 20's and lived there for 18 years. I had quite an exciting life in the city but in my 40's realized I needed a change from big-city living, which brought me to the beautiful mountains of Mariposa. I was trained as a french chef and love to talk about anything food related. Some of my other interests include photography, horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking, off-roading and most importantly...spending time with my family :)
Little bit about Carolyn
Asides for hosting interesting visitors from around the world. I am also part time nurse practitioner and full time mom (which I love more then anything). I have a fitness and diet addiction and when I have the time I enjoy spending it hiking in Yosemite :)
