The 2700 square foot lodge is on 300 acres in the forest, private and beautiful, yet close enough to explore Yosemite. This listing is for renting individual dorm beds. We are on solar power, have swimming holes, & trails for hiking.
The 2700 sq. ft lodge is new, simple, yet elegant. It will suit a very wide range of needs, from the budget traveler, to someone looking for a well appointed space for their special event.
We are a destination with its own beauty and charm, a beautiful valley, a former Yosemite Miwok Indian village site. We make all our power from solar, yet have a new and modern house with most all amenities. We boast of no cell or internet service, which means you can truly have a vacation from it all!
We have a dog friendly room, ($30 additional fee). We are perfect for families large and small.
This site began the first tourist trail into Yosemite in the 1860s, a trail that John Muir walked.) History tours are available.
There are miles of trails, swim holes and a limestone cave to explore.
There are many things to learn about: living off the grid on alternative energy systems, the Miwok Indians and their village here, and the gold rush period that followed, gold panning, sustainable forestry, edible wild greens, etc! See the old rock work that built the Coulterville free trail into Yosemite in the 1850s and the old stone buildings still standing today.

Weitere wichtige Infos
Do not use GPS as it misleads. Use the map I provide once you book. You should try if at all possible to arrive before dark, since navigating in the forest at night can be more difficult, at least for your first drive in. You will need to arrive by 9PM. There is NO check in past 9PM. You can purchase your food from the Greeley Hill market before 6PM in winter, and before 7PM in summer.
Because we make our own power, we cannot have any devices that use power to heat, used here. The list of items that can not be used include blow dryers, curling irons, toasters, electric coffee pots, rice cookers, crock pots, heating pads, etc. For coffee we have a french press, or filters and a cone; for toast we use a griddle.
