Moonstone Retreat


The Moonstone Retreat is not just a house, it is a nurturing place for gathering 9.3 driving miles from the western gate of Yosemite National Park. A contemporary build with an Arts and Crafts soul, this home was created to honor the splendor of Yosemite and the Merced River Canyon.

This 3-bedroom, 3 bath home is designed to nurture. The Moonstone Retreat is fully climate controlled, with abundant natural light and views of the surrounding mountains and river. Yosemite is at your fingertips and The Moonstone awaits when you are ready to be home.

The Moonstone Retreat is appointed with all-natural materials, selected to enhance your sensory experience. Reclaimed teak floors are gentle on your feet after a long day on the trail. Sink into a buttery leather couch, curl up on sheep fleece rugs in front of the wood-burning stove. Feel the cool slate patio under your feet as the evening breeze winds up the river canyon. The living spaces are designed to create a sense of calm, and ease the mind, body, and soul while communing with one of the most spectacular places on earth.

The bedrooms each face in a different cardinal direction, allowing guests ultimate privacy. There are three primary bedrooms with en suite marble bathrooms and king beds. The bedrooms each have sliding doors that open to private decks with outstanding views. Appointed with luxe linens and duvets, Cuddledown pillows, Hangai Mountain Textile yak down throws, you will find nurturing sleep spaces after a full day in the mountains. The bohemian room is downstairs with three twin beds that can be made into a king bed and one twin upon request, and makes for a lively zone for children.

The outdoor dining area holds a hearth space for outdoor cooking. Born from a love of al fresco cooking and dining, this space is designed to gather friends and celebrate with ease in the Mediterranean climate of the Sierra. The fully-equipped outdoor kitchen is ready to party with a suite of cast iron cookware and wood-fired pizza equipage. The dining patio has splendid views of the canyon and a farmhouse table that seats 10. A stone pizza oven and parrilla make for a festive and dynamic cooking and dining experience. Let a Fire Gaucho lead you in an evening of creating pizza or asado barbeque. The Fire Gaucho will prepare all the necessary ingredients, stoke the fires, and take you on an interactive dining experience. With dough prepared and rolled, guests get to build their own pizzas, and the Fire Gaucho expertly cooks them in the wood-fired pizza oven. Asado evenings will be leisurely with the Fire Gaucho preparing and cooking all the meats and side dishes.
