"When I walked into this wonderful cabin/home, I realized that it was exactly what I was looking for and more. My husband, adult son and I stayed for 3 nights. The first thing that I saw was a hand written welcome note from Annie and Rick, giving us extra tips about the house and the area. The home has the feel of a cabin, with all of the modern conveniences. The kitchen and living room are one big open area. The beds were very comfortable, with plenty of extra blankets, if needed. The heat was great and easy to turn on/adjust. The TV worked well. There were plenty of towels and we did some of our wash. The washer and dryer were easy to use. The house has a lot of personal touches to make it feel homey. Annie is an artist and her beautiful paintings of the Yosemite area, decorate the house. Annie and Rick left a notebook with info about the house and lots of info about Yosemite; places to visit, maps, etc. They also have a variety of books about Yosemite and the area, with history and pictures. They were interesting and helpful to us. The house was easy to find, with excellent directions, and although there are other houses in the area, it feels very private. We cooked on the BBQ grill on the deck and made breakfasts at the house. The kitchen was well supplied with pots, pans, nice dishes, cups, silverware, coffee, tea, spices and etc. The house is pretty central to many areas in Yosemite. We drove to visitor's Centers and took the shuttle to areas that we wanted to see. The house was as pictured in the rental listing and better! The house was very clean and obviously well maintained. The yard area had been raked, while leaving a natural setting. Although we didn't have a need to call Annie and Rick, I would have felt perfectly comfortable doing so. Renting the property was easy. We also walked around the property, watching a sunrise from a little hill in the yard area, while deer bounded by. I would highly recommend the property to family and friends, and hope to go back someday myself. If you love the feel of a private, beautiful cabin in the woods, you will love this place!!"
