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.

My friends and I had a wonderful and comfortable stay in Laurie and Craig's gorgeous cottage. Plenty of beds, linen, amenities and even a bottle of wine when we checked in! We used the cottage as a base for checking out Yosemite (roughly 1hr 15min away to Yosemite Village), and this was the perfect home away from home to come and relax after a long day out on the trails. Wish we could've stayed for longer and made use of the grill and cupboard of boardgames :-) Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and opening up your beautiful home! We'll definitely be back.
Located in a lovely area, the drive to get to the cottage alone was enough to make the trip a beautiful one! Upon arrival we were meet with a complimentary bottle of wine and a huge book full of instructions on how to get to caves, waterfalls, and all that Yosemite has to offer. The house was full of warmth and comfort and it was a very fun trip. I only wish my party of four had more time to stay there.
Thank you for the lovely stay!
We had a very nice and cozy staying in the house. We were greeted with complementary wine and the house was stacked with everything we needed, especially with helpful guidelines for hiking. House itself was really spacious.
Wonderful hosts and a nice, quiet place for multiple couples to crash while exploring Yosemite during the day. I would definitely come back.
The property and area was beautiful,my cousins and I had a wonderful time!
The Yosemite Sugar Pine Cottage was the perfect place for me and my group to get away. The property is quite secluded and quiet and surrounded by nature. The house itself was beautiful, spacious and home-y and was very well stocked with everything we needed. All the instructions were laid out and there were even some very useful maps and guides to hiking in Yosemite. The complimentary bottle of wine and the cupboard full of board games made for a very fun experience. The back deck was great for watching the stars, making s'mores and sitting back and relaxing. The pictures do not do the house and all its amenities justice. I highly recommend this place, you will definitely enjoy it!
We had a fantastic time at the Sugar Pine Cottage. As soon as we stepped out of the car, we were struck by how quiet it is around the cottage, making it the perfect place to get back to and relax after a long day of hiking in Yosemite. The house was incredibly spacious and the complimentary bottle of wine was a very nice touch. We will definitely be back.
