Guest access

Guests and owners do not share any common areas. Guest parking is just down the street. Access is via a private stairway off of the road. The room and bathroom are small, but comfortable, and the private deck is amazing! Guests do not have access to the main home.

Interaction with guests

Access is self check-in via lock box. Because of the way the home is situated, you will most likely not cross paths with us unless you need us. If you are looking for a B&B with a host that is always on site and greets you at check-in, this is not the property for you. That being said, we always love meeting fellow travelers should the occasion arise.

Other things to note

As traveler's ourselves, we have made this space into exactly the type of place we would enjoy. We love finding unique places that are affordable, and we would definitely prefer a small room in a beautiful setting to a large room in a chain hotel.

We loved our stay at ouzel nest and wish we had more time there! Easy to find with charlottes instructions. Immaculte little space to sleep between visiting Yosemite during the day. Charlotte has this place kitted out with all the amenities you'll need. Wifi was great. Beautiful drive to Yosemite valley every morning. This is our first experience with air bnb and we would highly recommend ouzel nest to anyone!

Our first visit to Yosemite couldn’t be complete without this. Ouzel nest is a great and comfortable place for couples. Very well Organized with all the amenities.The sound of river makes it more romantic. Charlotte is really great in providing directions to the place and also her Welcome Guide makes you more familiar with the location. Will highly recommend this to my friends visinting Yosemite

My girlfriend and I stayed at Ouzel Nest for two nights and it was suberb. The accomodation is very clean and cozy and it has lots of functional and esthetic details. Also the location is perfect; in a small forest village (very romantic) and close Oakhurst and the south entrance of Yosemite NP. To Yosemite village takes about 1 hour. Charlotte was very communicative and helfpul. We searched for an accomodation near, but not IN Yosemite NP and Ouzel Nest was the perfect place.

As travelers ourselves, we have made "Ouzel Nest" into exactly the kind of place we would love to stay. I am a 6th generation local with extensive knowledge of the Yosemite area. We have also traveled coast to coast, driven the Alaska Highway, explored New Zealand by campervan, stayed in B&B's all over Ireland & Scotland, stayed in Airbnb's in Thailand and visited our share of tropical islands. I can tell you that if you love unique spaces in amazing places, you will love Ouzel Nest.
