  • Peaceful setting, convenient location and clean!

    "As a group of 8 people, we chose this home based on the size of our group and it's location close to a wedding we were attending. Upon entering the home, we were immediately wowed by the wall of windows in the great room, and its view. We spent evening time in this large room which contained plenty of comfy seating, and a dining table as well. Daytime was usually spent on the deck surrounded by the sounds of nature. Very peaceful. The house was very clean; most importantly the kitchen and bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the bath linens looked new. Despite a drought, we did not have issues with the water supply. It was convenient having a washer and dryer. As noted, the dishwasher does not work. The kitchen appliances were sufficient for our needs. Ants were not an issue for us and have been controlled with an exterminator. We all agreed that this house was a great find. We would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone."

  • Cozy cabin and wonderful stay

    "We stayed in Susan's cabin two nights for our first Yosemite trip. This house is very cozy and clean. The environment was very unique. We have stayed in many cabin in the wood, and this one is truely in the forest and you will definitely get 100% privacy. The cabin is well stocked with everything we need during our stay. The cabin is conveniently located in between the mariposa grove and yosemite valley, and it's inside Yosemite national park. Owner Susan was very nice and patient to answer all of our questions and concern. We would highly recommend this cabin."

  • Wonderful Cabin

    "We spent a few days there in Mid July and found the place to be nice and spacious. it is also only about 5 -7 mins away from the South entrance of the park so it is conveniently located close to the Yosemite NP. We had the entire place for us to house a big group. Fully equipped Kitchen and 3 bathrooms. plenty of pull out beds. John the owner was very hospitable and came to help check us in (he lives only a couple mins away from the property so he is only a holler away if you need him) The only thing that you should know going in is that the upper floor of the cabins (loft area) can get real hot by late afternoon and it will cool down only by late night (say about 11pm or so) with open windows, since there is no air conditioning in the upper loft area that sleeps about 5 people. So if you are a late birder this shouldnt be an issue for you. if you like to go to bed at 9 or so then tough luck. Overall a good stay and I would do it again at Bear Cub Den"

Yosemite Area Travel Tips

Incredible Scenery at Yosemite

One thing that Yosemite is known for is its beautiful scenery. Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the landscape is characterized by majestic mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls and wide valleys. It is the perfect vacation destination for people who enjoy nature and appreciate beautiful scenery. Yosemite is also known for its abundant wildlife, in particular its bears. Visitors who enjoy wildlife viewing can explore the park daily and seek out animals to get some great wildlife photographs. Yosemite has some world-famous climbing crags that attract climbers from around the globe. It is also a popular National Park for hiking. There are trails suitable for both families and more experienced hikers. The valley has a paved biking trail that is ideal for sightseeing and gaining access to some of the more remote areas of the park. Bikes can be hired from various centers in the park.

Things to See and Do near Yosemite Cabins

Yosemite is famous for its incredible waterfalls. There are seven spectacular waterfalls within the park and a further four just outside of it. The Yosemite Falls are made of three smaller waterfalls known as the upper, middle and lower falls. In total, the waterfall has a drop of 2,425 feet, making it the fifth highest waterfall in the world. The Ribbon Falls cascade off the west side of El Capitan and have a drop of 1,612 feet. The Ribbon Falls is the tallest single waterfall in the United States. Other waterfalls include the beautiful Bridalveil Falls, so named because the wind often blows the waterfall, spreading out the water like a bridal veil. The Horsetail Falls is a seasonal waterfall than runs for several weeks in February off the eastern side of El Capitan. The background light from the sun lights up the waterfall in a spectacular way, making it look as though it’s on fire.

Yosemite’s rock formations provide excellent subjects for photographs, especially in the early morning or late afternoon sunlight. Some of the more famous landmarks include El Capitan which is a 7,569-foot granite peak that rises up from the valley floor. It is a challenging and well-known rock climbing face. Mt. Lyell is the tallest peak in the park and also home to the park’s only active glacier. The peak rises up to an impressive height of 13,114 feet. The Matterhorn peak is at an altitude of 12,264 feet and part of a series of peaks that make up the Sawtooth Ridge in the northeastern part of the park.

Best Time of Year to Visit Yosemite

Because of the extensive amount of trails and wildlife viewing opportunities, most people prefer to visit during the summer season. This is also the season when the waterfalls are at their most spectacular. The long summer days are ideal for exploring and enjoying your favorite outdoor activities. Yet summer is not the only season when it’s worth visiting Yosemite. The fall and winter months are particularly beautiful in the park. Snow occurs at higher altitudes and there is a ski resort at Badger Pass which has a number of ski runs. Cross country skiing is also available at Mariposa Grove.
