Cozy lodge-type house located in Gold Country area near Yosemite National Park. Greeley Hill is a small community in a pine and oak forest at approximately 3,100-foot elevation on the John Muir Highway and 25 miles from the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite. Because Yosemite covers 1,200 square miles, it is difficult to give a drive-time estimate, in general.

No smoking inside the house. There is a can for cigarette ashes and butts on the deck.

No pets allowed.

When you leave the cottage, we request that you please turn the thermostat temperature down to 60 degrees in order to conserve fuel.

Do not make the beds on the day of your departure so that we know which ones were used.

Please do not put any paper products in the toilets except for toilet tissue. Discard feminine hygiene products in the garbage. Small amounts of food scraps may be put in the kitchen sink garbage disposal (the switch is on the front of the sink cabinet, covered by a switch cover). Recycle items such as glass and cans go in the black plastic garbage can. Everything else can be compacted in the kitchen compactor. To operate it, step on the foot pedal at the bottom which will cause it to open. Do not try to pull it open with the handle at the top. Do not place any garbage outside the cottage as it will attract animals and will end up all over.

Please do not start any fire outside the cottage without prior permission from us. The Fire Service is very strict and we need to verify that it is allowed first. If you violate this, you will be responsible for the fine. There is a garden hose next to the front door that can be connected to the faucet and used in case of emergency.

Check out time is 11 a.m. on your day of departure. We hope that you enjoyed your stay and will submit a review to Airbnb!

This place was great! They provided everything needed for a comfortable stay and they even provided suggestions about what we can do there. Furthermore, the grocery store and gas station is about 10 minutes from the house so it is super convenient. The only issue that the drive from the house to yosemite valley is a little far (but its not too bad) so by the time we head back to the house from yosemite valley, the area is pitch black and a little dangerous to drive in the dark. However, all in all it was a great place to stay for a few days.

Great place to stay! Although we did not see them, (because we spent most of the time in the nearby Yosemite NP), we felt very welcomed by Laurie and Craig by their messages. The cottage is cozy and has everything you need! Highly recommended!

Gorgeous setting, friendly and welcoming hosts, about 30-40 minutes to Yosemite. The only downside I would mention is that the upstairs air conditioner is loud and comes on and off, and I found it hard to sleep through. In fairness, I may just be a light sleeper; others in my party were not awakened by it as much as I was.

Response from Laurie And Craig:
The cottage has a whole-house evaporative cooler that is located on the roof, so is louder in the upstairs rooms. Unlike air-conditioning, there are supposed to be windows open for it to function, as the instructions explain in our house manual. I am sorry that it disturbed your sleep.

Cabin was clean and very spacious. My large family fit comfortably. The cabin was exactly as described and in a good location for driving into Yosemite. Also, check-in was a breeze! I would definitely recommend this place and I plan to come back in the future.

We had a very nice time at the cottage. A lot of tips were provided by Laurie over email and Jim also provided nice tips on when to visit Yosemite. :)

Lots of space for a family gathering. We celebrated our grandson 's 4th birthday. There were 10 of us and we had a good time. Unfortunately, because of the fire we had to evacuate early. The property manager was very helpful in that process.
