Come experience true mountain comfort in our newest addition of vacation rentals, 'Cub's Cabin'. This quaint little house is ideal for families. There are 3 bedrooms plus a loft with a queen size sofa sleeper. The living room has a gas fireplace and an incredible window view of the woods along with a spacious deck perfect for your relaxation. On the lower deck you can enjoy your hot tub or retreat to 'Cub's Den', the entertainment room. This lower portion of the house is equipped with workout equipment, a bar, lounge, air hockey table and a full bathroom.
Yosemite West is the perfect location for your mountain getaway. We are centrally located inside the gates of Yosemite National Park. Just 30 minutes south of the valley floor, one mile from Glacier Point road and just 6 miles from Badger Pass ski area and 30 minutes (15 miles) from Glacier Point. Even though it's very convenient to most areas of the park, this is still a very remote community and you are likely to see wild animals such as coyotes, deer and maybe even an occasional bear looking for a free meal (they're not dangerous, by the way, but please do NOT feed them!).
You can hike the nearby nature trails or ski at Badger Pass; the cross-country skiing along Glacier Point Road and the trails to the cliffs are spectacular in the extreme! And they are all a short 20 minutes from your front door, even in winter.
No matter how you spend your vacation, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends.

Cozy Cub's Cabin
Cozy Cub's Cabin
I had never been to Yosemite, and I couldn't have asked for a better first visit. Here are the top 5 reasons to stay at Cub's Cabin: 1) Great Location close to everything 2) Beautiful deck - perfect for viewing the gorgeous night sky 3) Stocked with everything a traveler needs to enjoy their stay 4) Clean and bright with lots of natural light filtering through 5) The best caretaker - Holly was courteous, helpful and one of the best people I've ever met. Thank you for the wonderful memories of Yosemite! Debbie

"Honeymoon in Yosemite"
My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway for our 10th anniversary and every year we call it a "honeymoon." We do love the Sierras and have spent a lot of time hiking these beautiful mountains. We came across Holly's 'Cub's Cabin" and liked the way it looked private and was in the forest. When we arrived we were quite surprised that it was much more than the photos show. The wood floors gleamed, the kitchen was much bigger than ours at home, and it was downright cozy in a perfectly gorgeous forest setting. We loved the deep jacuzzi bath and took wonderful bubble baths each day. I caught up on my reading in the living room while being able to overlook the beautiful forest setting with the cathedral ceiling. My husband enjoyed the large tv and found many movies to watch. We drove to the valley most days to sightsee and were in awe of the falls and wildlife. Even though it was cold we took some great walks - the air was crisp and clean. I love to cook and found the kitchen very well equipped, even with some wonderful herbs and spices. The beds had a luxurious feel and we started to feel the stress of the city life and our work melt away. I love this house and would come back in a second! It is spotlessly clean, would be great for couples or families, and is in a beautiful location within Yosemite Park. It is a quick trip to the valley if you need restaurants or other services or simply to sightsee.

Hi Holly, we got back to Los Angeles after spending a couple of beautiful days in Yosemite and your cozy cabin. The last night we lay in your hot tub under the star filled sky thinking of all the wonderful things we saw and experienced. All the best, Kay

Good service, nice house, best location
Good service, nice house, best location
Others have said it, but Yosemite West is the best location--between the Valley and Wawona right where Glacier Point Rd. takes off. The house was very nice and had all we needed. We cooked simple meals and found the kitchen adequately supplied. One note: if you know what to look for you can see it in the pictures, but the tub is sunken by about 2 feet below the bathroom floor. This was tricky for the older members of our group, and this house would not be a good choice for anyone unsteady on their feet. Holly, the owner, was professional and responsive, and we would without hesitation recommend working with her.

Owner response: Hi Mark, Thank you for your review on "Cub's Cabin". I understand your concern about the jacuzzi style bathtub, that is why I pictured the inside of the tub in the website listing, so people are aware of the depth. I plan to have my contractor handicap the tub a little more then the handle and step. I apologize for any discomfort it may have caused. Otherwise, I am very glad you enjoyed the house and the great location:) Holly

"Clean and functional cabin!"
The cabin was very clean and functional for the group of 9. It was very close to all of the main attractions at Yosemite. We enjoyed coming back from long hikes knowing we had a nice place to have dinner in.

"Nice home with everything you need!"
We stayed for 3 nights at the end of July 2012. The house was very nice and clean with everything we needed for our stay. It was spacious and in a nice location with lots of big trees. The owner was prompt when we called with a small issue. We think it was worth the money and are glad we stayed!

"All the comforts of home, in fabulous setting"
"All the comforts of home, in fabulous setting" Our family of 4 adults stayed here for 3 nights and were more than satisfied. It sounds small with name "Cub's Cabin" but it is spacious enough for 6 or 7 people. A dream house for your kids too. Spotlessly clean and fresh, well decorated, nice kitchen, deck with barbecue. The rec room has fitness equipment, air hockey table, sofas, bathroom and nearby outdoor hot tub. Nice surprises: fluffy large bathsheets, games, family dvd movies, wall-sized window to view sunrise and sunset. Located in a neighborhood of homes (but not close enough to intrude)and very convenient to the heart of Yosemite - well inside the Park gates. The owner and caretaker (down road) were responsive to small requests. Don't forget to buy all groceries before getting to the Park. The Park stores have limited selection.

"Perfect location, cute and cozy home"
We stayed 2 nights in august and the place was great. Not too hot. It is nicely appointed with decor and the kitchen has everything we needed, including a nice selection of spices. Our kids, ages 3,6,7,10, thought it was the greatest place on earth, particularly the cub's den basement area and the outdoor space. We ate every meal on the beautiful porch. The location is fantastic relative to what we wanted to see, the valley, glacier point, and mariposa grove. The place was clean with plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, etc and the communication with owner was prompt, accurate, and professional. Thanks!

Wow what a pleasant surprise!Guest comment entered by owner
Wow what a pleasant surprise!
All I can say is Wow... We wish we had planned more time in Yosemite. Cub's Cabin is a wonderful place to stay. It is not far from any of the main sight seeing areas. It is 15-25 minutes from the Lower Valley, Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove. Great location in a residential area! Holly is a great communicator. She responds very quickly to email and phone calls. Outstanding service. The place was very clean and modern. The only reason I did not give a perfect 5 is because it does not have a/C. However there are many fans in the place and we kept cool. It actually was a bit cold each evening, therefore no need for fans at night. We were hardly there during the day when it was hot. There were 6 of us and we had more than enough room to sleep comfortably. It easily sleeps 6-10 people. I wish we had more time to play horse shoes, sleep in the hammock or enjoy the hot tub. They are all great...
