SUNSET INN - YOSEMITE GUEST CABINS... 'Cozy Comfort for Yosemite Travelers.'

Located just two miles from Yosemite, Sunset Inn is surrounded by forest, tucked away on a lush, private, meadow, far from the crowds, yet in close proximity to all the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park.

Three charming, cabins are situated on the edge of the meadow, within an ancient forest, at 4,500 feet elevation, surrounded by huge, aromatic pines, fresh air, and star studded nights. A true mountain get-away.

Two charming 'couples cabins' are each attractively designed in a studio layout. The interiors of both unique cabins are done in the 'Craftsman Style' of custom woodworking. Each cabin is complete with a king or queen size bed, well-equipped kitchen, private bathroom with shower, fan cooling in summer, or cozy wood burning stove (firewood is provided), as well as propane heat in winter, and inviting sun porch. These lovely cabins are set on the edge of the surrounding forest. A twin futon bed is available in Larkspur Cabin for an additional guest.

This beautiful two-room bungalow cabin is also handsomely designed in the 'Craftsman Style' of fine woodworking. There are 3 beds; a queen in the main room, and a double & a single bed in the other room. There is a well equipped kitchen and dining area, bathroom with a shower, fan cooling or propane heating, including a gas parlor stove where you can watch the fire. (No wood burning stove in this cabin.) Meadow Lark Cabin is situated over-looking our lovely meadow, with a roomy sun porch, ideal to take in those sunsets for which we are so aptly named. This lovely cabin will accommodate up to five guests.

Beautiful quilts adorn the pre-made beds. Soap, shampoo & fluffy bath towels are provided, as well as beach towels to take down to the river. Kitchens in all three cabins are well equipped with a four burner stove top, toaster oven or range oven, coffee maker, and refrigerator, along with pots, pans, dishes, utensils, even dish soap, as well as coffee and tea for you to prepare as you like.

Each cabin has a table or counter with chairs or bar stools and either an easy chair or a rocker. For entertainment, aside from the great outdoors, your cabin is outfitted with playing cards, board games and puzzles as well as books, magazines and local literature, including park information.

Each cabin has a charcoal barbecue grill. A picnic table is available in our idyllic meadow, along with a swing, sand box, frog pond, and farm yard chickens, for outdoor enjoyment. When they are 'in the mood', our chickens provide delicious eggs for our guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

Why the Owner Chose Groveland:
In 1976 Bill Nickell and Lauren Bauman arranged to rent one of the rustic cabins of this old stage stop, were married, and shortly had the good fortune of purchasing the property. While raising our children, many years were spent upgrading and improving the property. We reestablished Sunset Inn in 1998, and have since thoroughly enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the world to this unique spot. Sunset Inn has become our home and our heart. The beauty, the tranquility and the peace only found in nature have inspired us to be totally dedicated to our incredible home. Knowing what a wondrous place this is, we thoroughly enjoy sharing it with others.
