The SpaceThis is a 2 bedroom 1 bath attached private apartment on 3 acres. You'll have your own private entrance, with ample and safe parking in a quiet neighborhood. Central A/C and heat keep you comfortable no matter the weather outside. We have never owned pets since the construction of this space thus it can be considered truly pet hair and dander free.
The master bedroom has a new queen memory foam mattress, a side table, a mirror, and a cabinet full of board games. A sliding glass door leads to a small table and two chairs outside, and has a private door to the bathroom. The walk-in closet has hangers and an exercise bike you can easily roll out and plug in.
The kitchenette has a mini-fridge with a freezer compartment. There is a 2 burner hot plate, a microwave, and toaster, and my favorite part, the coffee bar (with tea, too) which we hope will help you start your day off right. Almost everything in the kitchenette is new and includes flatware and place settings for 8, and basic kitchen tools. Ask if there is something specific you need. There is also an outdoor charcoal barbecue available for your use.
The dining set seats 4 and would work nicely for a laptop work space.
The second bedroom has a new queen pillow-top mattress a side table with mirror and a chest at the foot of the bed, that would work well for a suitcase. The peg rack is for any items you need to hang using hangers from the master bedroom closet.
The bathroom's huge shower, which you share with a hanging plant, has an upgraded shower head, conditioning shampoo and shower gel, and if you forget something essential we may have what your missing, so just ask. Guest AccessWhen you arrive you will park in the large parking area on left side of house which is outside of the private entrance. Specific check-in arrangements will be made after booking, but generally someone will be here to give you a key and and answer any questions. For your safety, only the reserving guest with a valid picture ID will be receiving the keys. There is plenty of parking room for boats and RVs (but no hookups). Interaction with GuestsWe live on the property and are available to answer questions, address issues, offer local dining and recreation suggestions or to chat over a beverage of choice. We and our well behaved children will respect your privacy, but it's home to us, so you may see us outside. When the weather is right, you may hear us around our backyard campfire, which you are always welcome to enjoy with us, and if not, you can count on us being quiet after 10pm.

We are 1 mile off of Ca State Hwy 41 and gas, groceries, drive-through coffee shop, and restaurants are all within 2 miles. Getting AroundFor info on bus service to Yosemite from Coarsegold Village visit YARTS on the web. Other Things to NoteOur property has beautiful wildflowers in the spring, and while the summers can be hot, there are some great swimming and fishing spots nearby. Fall is a great time to visit when the summer crowds have thinned and the weather is usually nice. There is a slight chance of a dusting of snow in the winter (2500 ft elev.).
Keep an eye out for deer, coyote, raccoon and even an occasional wild turkey. While we have rarely seen bears, wild boar, and have never seen a mountain lion, they are known to live in or near the area. Coarsegold also has a festival in the fall to celebrate the migration of tarantulas. You may see them walking across the road at that time of year but they are harmless, even though they look creepy.
