  • Beautiful newer custom Home

    "This is a large, beautiful, and very comfortable newer home for family gatherings. Our family has stayed both in the summer season as well as during the winter. The owner has really thought it out and has provided all of the supplies and amenities you might need for an easy and comfortable stay in any season.... kitchen supplies, linens, patio, movies, games etc. etc. Working with Janice was easy and strait forward. It really is as nice as the pictures, we couldn't recommend it more!"

  • Great Location For Visits To Yosemite Or Just A Get-Away

    "We've stayed at several VRBO properties and would rate this our most favorite, because of its location, comfort, decor, cleanliness, and friendliness/thoughtfulness of the owner. First of all, Sunset Roost is aptly named because of the spectacular sunsets from the deck. We even found ourselves timing our daily departures from Yosemite to get back to enjoy those sunsets! The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped. The furniture is very comfortable. The decor is very tasteful. The hot-tub is an added bonus. Rosemary grows all around the property. Wild life abounds, including hummingbirds. It's a total close-to-nature sensorial delight. There is zero light pollution, so the stars sparkle brightly, the planets wander, and the Milky Way splashes across the night sky. Mariposa is a fun western town only about 15-20 minutes away with various restaurants, pubs, pizza, gas, groceries, etc., so the necessities of civilization are within comfortable driving distance. We could not recommend this property more highly!"

  • A wonderful place!

    "My family, including two young children, stayed here for New Year's and it was perfect. Martina was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating, and the house itself was extremely comfortable and spacious, with a very well-stocked kitchen, ping-pong and pool table, comfortable beds, and nice living space. We spent all day in Yosemite every day and it was a wonderful place to come back to and rest. The kitchen has everything we needed and we cooked great meals. The upstairs/downstairs set up is perfect for families with kids. Nice location, which I imagine is great in the summer with the lake nearby. I highly recommend it, and am only hesitant to write this review because I don't want it to get too fully booked! We look forward to staying there again soon."

  • Everything you could want, and more!

    "We had the most amazing time at this cabin. It has every amenity you could possibly want. It slept our group of 6 comfortably and could definitely accommodate more. The cub's den was my favorite aspect. We used the spa and BBQ and both worked perfectly. Plenty of towels, linens, kitchen items, etc... The location is far from town, but a good central location from the South gate and yosemite valley. I would return to cub's cabin in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to a friend!"

Yosemite Area Travel Tips

Incredible Scenery at Yosemite Vacation Rentals

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 Lodging

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.
