Great Place!

We had a great time. There was plenty of room for everyone. It was very peaceful and quiet. My young grandson loved watching the birds while he was having his breakfast. Wished there was food so we could have refilled the feeders. There was deer around as well as wild turkeys. Yosemite was nearby, which we enjoyed visiting and playing in the Merced River.

Quiet, secluded, and plenty of space

This was a base for a quick family getaway to Yosemite: plenty of room for teens who wanted their own space in between family fun timed. Great star-gazing from the outdoor spa on the deck!

Great place to get away

We had a great time at the house. It is exactly as advertised. The location is perfect for the feeling of getting away from it all and close enough to Yosemite and town to meet our needs.

5 Adults, 2 Kids, and 3 dogs to Yosemite in March

Like the title says, we had quite the crew here the second week of March, and this house was perfect for us. Super spacious eating and common areas, plenty of bedrooms, and of course the Jacuzzi is perfect after hiking all day. They had an awesome fenced area for the dogs, and a game room for the kids. Next time we come to Yosemite with a big group, we will definitely look into staying here!

Caleb M.
Spacious and inviting

We had a great stay here. The cabin has an old-school charm, which makes it inviting and comfortable, while being very roomy and well-stocked with the basics. Quiet setting, close to Yosemite and Mariposa.
