This is a new cottage built specifically as an AirBnB. It is a quiet, comfortable space in a rural setting with a private patio (<-- in progress, almost done...) and views of the Sierra foothills. It is a perfect spot for a family or couple wanting to visit the wonderful National Parks nearby (1 hour to Yosemite, a bit over 2 hours to Sequoia and Kings Canyon).

The space
Inside it's a beautiful space, with a fully equipped kitchen, spacious living room and master bedroom. The latter two rooms have high vaulted ceilings and are very comfortable. The entire space is air conditioned and kept immaculately clean for guests. Television is limited as we don't have access to cable here, but Netflix is available on it and you can cast to it from your phone. There are better things to see here than television anyway...

Guest access
Guests will have access through a key code door, and parking is right by the door.

Other things to note
Please be aware of the Federal and State laws regarding chain control if you are intending to drive in Yosemite National Park between November and March. More information is available here: nps(dot)gov/yose/planyourvisit/tirechains.htm

I'm sort of semi-retired and living part-time in California and part-time in Massachusetts. I was a professional scientific diver for over 25 years before being diagnosed with a genetic lung condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, which meant that I could no longer dive for work. I drive the boat on dive jobs now and also run a small consulting and photography business. I am a veteran of the US Coast Guard, and hold professional degrees from the University of Rhode Island and UMass, Amherst.

During your stay
My wife and I are often available in the evenings and would love to meet guests on our deck next door to the cottage, but you are also welcome to enjoy the privacy of the cottage and never even see us if you want :) Given the current pandemic status of the US the latter is more likely, but I'm looking forward to the day when I can delete this sentence.
