Yosemite National Park cabin description

This Yosemite vacation rental home is located INSIDE Yosemite National Park. It offers quality clean lodging for your vacation with fantastic views into Yosemite Valley of El Capitan and Half Dome! Rent any time of year! It is only 11 minutes to Yosemite Valley from the Half Dome View Home!

The 2014 El Portal fire leaves some of the land near the cabin burned and clear for great views. Spring 2015 will bring new growth, lupines, but for now the area near the home is blackened from recent fire. It does not affect the home which is terrific and a wonderful vacation spot.

This unique log mountain Cabin is located in the private are of Foresta at the western edge of the Yosemite National Park between Crane Flat and Yosemite Valley. This super clean, self-catering, private rental home is an ideal base camp for visitors exploring the Yosemite National Park area. There are 4 queen beds plus queen fold out couch, one twin bed, plus floor pads for extra sleeping arrangements. With the excellent location, views, all linens provided, full kitchen, satellite TV and NOW HAVE INTERNET AT THE HOME. Relax in peace and quiet unlike the sometimes crowded Yosemite Valley - enjoy lovely sunrises and sunsets from the huge outside deck, great outdoor or indoor dining with view of Yosemite Valley. Plus Panorama Views from the Unique Cupola Lookout Room! Upstairs bedroom has private deck/balcony.

Home which is in the Eastern Sierra near Mono Lake.

              Fees:

              • Tax Rate 11%

              Notes:

              Rates posted (seasonal) are for group of 2. Please add $25/nt/each additional person, + tax. Maximum 8 - 10.

              Great cancellation fee of only 5% if cancel with 30 days or more notice of arrival. Thus, you'd receive your deposit back less 5% of total if you cancel with 30 days or more notice of your arrival. Keep us informed.

              INSIDE YOSEMITE IN SMALL RURAL TOWN OF FORESTA.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: Rick bought this log home in 1982 when working at the Yosemite Climbing School. He lived in the home until moving to the Eastern Sierra when he then could make the home into a vacation rental home. Rick cares for the home diligently as it is clean, well maintained and he refers to the home as 'The Mansion' as it is a spacious true Yosemite home.

              Why the Owner Chose Yosemite National Park:
              It is unique to own a home INSIDE Yosemite National Park and homes as such are very very limited. Rick bought this home because of his life long love of Yosemite as well as his employment there, the excellent location, and the rural history of Foresta is very appealing.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Quiet, views, location inside Yosemite National Park. A fun place to be - a log cabin in Yosemite!
