  • Our 2nd visit to this charming cabin . . .

    "We have stayed at this property twice and it never fails to impress. The kids loves the bunk beds and cute bear towels. The internet connection is strong and the tv quality excellent. We were able to walk down to the lake and over to the Pines Resort 4th of July Celebration. The only thing that could be improved is parking. We had two large cars and space was very tight."

  • Perfect Place to Stay Inside Yosemite

    "Stayed here for a few days for our first visit to Yosemite with another couple from out of state (we're all in our early 40s). What a terrific place! When you want to relax, unwind and unplug from the digital leash, this is a fantastic place to do so, as they have ALL of the comforts of home (except WiFi, but remember, we're unplugging here). Spotty Verizon wireless service, if you must know. The kitchen is well stocked with some pantry items (S&P, oil, flour, sugar, coffee) and everything you need to cook a meal (pots, pans, knives, utensils, etc). We cooked a lot - living within driving distance, getting food in advance and/or from the Yosemite Valley market is easy. We played Trouble. A LOT. Loved it - haven't played in forever. Did a little Trivial Pursuit too. Other games and DVDs are there, too and the book selection was nice to peruse - the photo books in particular. Comfy places to sit - window seats with throws, chairs, couch, recliner and of course, the hot tub! And the stars! When was the last time you looked up at the Milky Way every night? Kiki the hot tub mascot took a particular liking to me and kept floating in my direction for some reason. She looks like a cross between a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and a Sleestack. Eating breakfast out on the deck was lovely and quiet. We were there at a time when we didn't need heat or A/C, so I can't speak to the heat/fireplace and I know there isn't any A/C but we def didn't need it. All of the instructions that the owner sends in advance are super clear and easy to understand, including photos of where to turn, where the trash goes, etc. We did not use the BBQ, but that was an option for us. The recent El Portal fire came very close to the Ahweanee but it did not affect our stay in any way. The trees and surrounding area were saved (Thank You fire fighters!). In fact, walking/driving around the burn area of Foresta was really incredible and interesting to see up close. The proximity to EVERYTHING in the park is unbeatable. 20 minutes or less to the valley and the myriad of sites along the way. The ease of getting to other parts of the park is just ridiculously convenient. What is also nice is that Foresta is accessible in the winter, so a winter trip is definitely in our future. Four wheel drive and chains are required to access this house so take note. Can't wait to come back!"

  • 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.
