Welcome to Yosemite, where the rocks are bigger and the water is sweeter! At the Sweetwater Lodge, you will enjoy a luxury ambiance with the convenience of being one of THE closest homes to Yosemite Valley. Located in Yosemite West, a small cluster of the only homes inside the gates of Yosemite, the Sweetwater is your oasis of comfort after a long day of playing beneath the waterfalls and granite giants in Yosemite. Perfect for a romantic couple's stay or a home base for your group adventure!

The space
The Sweetwater is the perfect balance of high end luxury living mixed with the cozy comfort that a true mountain cabin should possess.

The Bedrooms: There are 3 spacious bedrooms, including a master suite on the top floor. No expense was spared on furnishing these rooms with Room & Board and Crate & Barrel furniture. Each room boasts a queen sized bed fitted with high quality linens, firm yet comfortable mattresses and mattress toppers making each bed extra inviting when you are ready to call it a night. The snowy cold winters in Yosemite are no match for the down comforters and extra blankets that are kept in each room, although the gas furnace and well insulated house will keep you plenty toasty. Each bedroom also has extra large windows, to allow you to stare out at the pine trees and the stars beyond, or easy pull down custom binds for extra privacy. The master suite enjoys an expansive walk-in closet and a private bathroom with extra large marble shower.

The Main Living Area: The centerpiece of the Sweetwater Lodge is its massive main living room with 20 foot vaulted ceilings and windows towering above you. This south facing room will drench you in all-day sunlight and the high windows will let you watch shooting stars from the comfort of your couch at night. Kick your feet up after a long day of skiing and watch a movie on the 65 inch HD television with surround sound. Or enjoy a cup of tea and book from the leather chair in the reading corner, while playing your favorite record on the record player with surround sound. This room is also stocked with your favorite board games for your group to enjoy, as well as maps and books about Yosemite that will help you plan out your next day's adventures. We also have a pack-n-play porta crib available for the little ones.

The Dining Room: The living room and dining room share an open floor plan, making this the perfect layout for your group festivities. The dining room feels extra spacious with the high ceilings and wall of windows. Sit down to dinner with your entire group at the massive 10 seater solid oak dining room table. Or pull up for breakfast at the bar that connects the dining room to the kitchen. But why eat indoors when you can dine beneath the pines?? The sprawling deck which opens off of the kitchen/dining rom has table and chairs set to the glow of outdoor LED string lights above.

The Kitchen: You will be hard pressed to find a nicer kitchen in all of Yosemite, than you will at the Sweetwater Lodge. No expense was spared in creation of this high end, stainless steel, chef's kitchen. From the SubZero refrigerator, to the marble counters/backsplash, to the Miele self-opening dishwasher, to the Kitchen Aid 6 burner stove, to the stainless steel microwave and easy to use trash compactor, the best of the best are at your fingertips. A large gas BBQ is mere steps outside of the kitchen door on the deck ready for you to grill to your heart's delight. Stocked with every amenity you could imagine, your culinary adventure awaits!

The Game Room- With a limitation on the number of bedrooms that are allowed in Yosemite, the Sweetwater Lodge is proud to have one of the only game rooms in all of Yosemite West. You will be lost in hours of fun in the Sweetwater game center. Relax on the couch and watch a movie on the 40 inch TV, or play your favorite video games on the game console. Try your hand at darts with the rustic wall mounted dart board or play some ping pong and shuffleboard with on the adjacent tables.

The Garage: We are one of the few homes in Yosemite that has a garage. You are welcome to park your car in the parking space on the right. We are also one of the only homes in Yosemite with an electric car charging station, which you are welcome to use.

Location

Yosemite National Park, California, United States

Yosemite West is a small group of homes nestled inside the gates of Yosemite National Park. It is a mix of vacation rentals and permanent residences. The most important thing to know about Yosemite West is that it is a rural mountain location that is very far from the everyday conveniences that you are probably accustomed to. You are 30 minutes from the closest store and 30 minutes from the closest gas station, so plan accordingly. There is no cell service in Yosemite West, so be prepared to disconnect. While there is internet, it is not especially fast and does go out on occasion. Because of this, you should do all of your trip planning before you arrive and don't count on being able to do it from the house. It is also not uncommon for there to be power outages. These typically only last for a few hours, but can sometimes last longer.

There are quite a few year round residents in Yosemite West. These are folks who get up every morning and go to work (usually in the park), so please be conscious of your noise level or you could have a park ranger knocking at your door.

Animals: Welcome to the mountains where we are lucky enough to live amongst the animals. This is their home and they were here long before us, so please be respectful. You will see bears, deer, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, turkeys, and much much more. Please do not leave any food or trash whatsoever, sitting out or you could have a bear waking you from your slumber. And even if an animal seems friendly, please do not ever feed them. They were not meant to eat human food. Your hostess, Mother Nature, thanks you!
