Property Description

The most relaxing and amazing location to stay during your next trip to Yosemite is The Secret Meadows Retreat.

This A frame home is situated on it’s own fourteen acres of meadows and forest. It features one bedroom plus a loft bedroom, large living room with sofas and wood burning fireplace.

Frequented by deer and other wildlife this is an exclusive experience being offered as a rental for the first time, on a trial basis.

Driving through three gates and 300 yards down it’s private driveway will bring you to the home and the first meadow.

This is an old homestead site with just a handful of nearby cabins, all of which are far enough away to provide you with complete privacy (except for the deer, birds, and other wildlife). Adjacent to and surrounded by thousands of aces of Stanislaus National Forest which can accessed by trails and old logging roads from the Retreat.

Located just 400 yards from Hwy 120, approximate five miles west of the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite National Park, in the Hardin Flat area.

This is an incredible destination that may leave you content without even venturing into Yosemite Valley, even though the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite is just another ten minutes down the 120.

Nearby horseback riding, river rafting and guided tours can be arranged.

The home is cozy, with one private bedroom with queen bed and TV, a loft with one double pillow-top queen and one full (plus an amazing view over the meadow), a dining room, fully stocked kitchen and a large, fourteen x twenty four foot, family room with a big wood burning fireplace, 42” flat screen TV on Dish Network, a desk with computer, and couches which can easily sleep two more.

Includes all appliances, a washer-dryer, hot water (strong pressure), central heating (plus a pellet stove in the dining room and the wood burning fireplace in the living room).

A very comfortable cabin with a bonus room for lounging and games.

We had a great time in Yosemite by using this cabin. Note to future users, get up early and go in the summer. Be at the gate by 8am and you will have smooth sailing. This was a nice location for exploring Hetch-Hetchy, Tioga Pass area, and Yosemite Valley. The kitchen was well stocked, beds were clean, and the deck a great place to hang out in the... Read More

Felt like our home away from home

This property was a nice getaway. Very private location without being too far off the main road to get in. It was a nice drive into the Yosemite Valley from the property location, even with the roadwork they were performing it didn't take too long to get there. We expected more traffic during June when everyone's on vacation. The nearby resort rush... Read More

Great location, amenities were a bit lacking.

While the location is the best feature of this property, the amenities were less than wonderful. The images in the advertisement do not show the property as it is. About 2/3 of the trees are dead or damaged. There are piles of dead wood on the property with one of them entangled in a blue tarp (not beautiful). I was a bit nervous to brave the dead... Read More

Nice place for a trip with family/friends to Yosemite

Location: Definitely a nice location if your main purpose there is to visit the Yosemite valley area, which is only about one hour away from this house (if you leave early). Environment: The ambience is quiet but not as pretty as I imagined, partly because it hasn't rained much and the grass are turning yellow. The road to the house is filled wit... Read More

Great Getaway!

We stayed here for New Years for a few days. The location was beautiful, very isolated and private which was awesome because we stayed up late a few nights. It was in the middle of the forest, you really feel have no service out there which made it perfect for a family trip. The cabin had wifi if needed but i didn't share that with my family, we ca...
