Accommodations: Falcon's Nest Upstairs

The Falcon's Nest is located in Yosemite West, a quiet neighborhood of private homes, located inside the gates of Yosemite. You don't realize the size and beauty of the Falcon's Nest from the street as you are viewing the carport and driveway. It is one of the few rentals in this area to give you covered parking and a level entry free of stair climbing. You step inside to rooms of light and color, filled with original paintings and works by famous photographers and wonderful views from the wall of windows in the great room.

You don't realize the size and beauty of the home until you step inside and see original paintings and works by famous photographers and the wonderful views from the wall of windows in the great room. The fully equipped kitchen is a joy to work in with its colorful granite countertops, lots of pots and dishes and basic food supplies such as herbs, oil, flour, sugar. There is a barbecue on the deck which has a sunset view and overlooks an animal trail. You may see deer, coyotes or even a bear on the hill below you while enjoying a sunset cocktail.

This split level home has two apartments. Each apartment can accommodate up to 8 guests. One bedroom is wheelchair accessible and has a queen and a twin bed. A second bedroom has a king bed that can be converted to twins and the third bedroom has a queen bed. All linens are provided. There are satellite TVs and DVDs in the great room and all bedrooms. We have wireless, of course! This is a very quiet area with no street lights or traffic but lots of stars.

This is an ideal home for those who are seeking comfortable relaxed accommodations for family, friends, coworkers or groups. Enjoy quick access to Yosemite National Park's amazing attractions without waiting in long lines to get into the nation's most famous national park. In less than 30 minutes, you can be watching the water cascade down Yosemite Falls, hiking up Half Dome, attending the Valley Chapel, rafting or kayaking on the Merced River, picnicking on Sentinel Dome or watching the sunset from Glacier Point. There is golfing on the 9 hole golf course at Wawona, only 11 miles away. In winter, let it snow! The roads are plowed regularly and often, and downhill or cross-country skiing at Badger Pass is very close by.

Enjoy our outdoor decks as you watch our local wildlife: bears, deer, coyotes, a variety of birds and more. Ski in the Winter at Badger Pass, only six miles away.

Yosemite National Park is so amazing and our vacation home is right in the center of the 3 most popular areas: You'll gasp at the height and power of the waterfalls in Yosemite Valley, gaze at the alpenglow on Half Dome at sunset at Glacier Point and be amazed at the height of the giant redwood trees in Mariposa Grove. After a day of touring you can return to the solitude of the Yosemite West area where you leave tourist traffic behind and enjoy a quiet dinner on the deck as the sun goes down and millions of stars come out to greet you.
