  • Warm, homey and perfect!!

    "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!!"

  • Nice, quiet place to stay while visiting Yosemite

    "We had a really lovely time staying at this house. It was clean & comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there are lots of board games & dvds to keep you occupied. The main purpose of our trip was to visit Yosemite, so we were only there in the mornings & evenings, but it was a great place to hang out & rest up for the next day. The area the house is in seems to be more of a summer vacation destination and a lot of the neighboring houses were empty, so it was very sedate & quiet while we were there - which is what we were looking for! I imagine that it's a lot more bustling in the summer. Pine Mtn Lake is quite lovely and looks like a great place to hang out, especially if you like water sports. Groveland itself is a cute town, with a nice market and several small businesses - shops, cafes, etc. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and provided us with lots of good information about the house (directions, check in/out directions, info about the Resort, etc). We would definitely consider staying at this house again!"

  • Wonderful Thanksgiving in Mariposa/Yosemite!

    "This is a really wonderful home! We spent three days here as our home base for exploring Yosemite and celebrating Thanksgiving. We saw deer every afternoon on the property which was amazing. Also, our friends who are chefs could not stop raving about how surprised they were about the kitchen being so well-equipped for a rental (they rent homes regularly and declared this kitchen as the best for cooking and socializing that they've ever rented in Yosemite/Mariposa/Oakhurst area). It was so nice to be able to soak in the hot tub after hiking in Yosemite and check out the stars. Everything was really easy in terms of accessing the home and how to use the hot tub and fireplace (very well documented!). We had a truly memorable trip--thank you so much for letting us stay!"

  • A great base "camp"

    "The Serenity Suite lived up to all our expectations. It's very attractive, comfortable, well-stocked, clean, and just about the most organized place I've ever stayed. Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point attractions are easily accessible from here The only drawback, as the owner warned us, is if the upstairs folks have little kids. They did, and there was quite a bit of noise from the running around. Thankfully, it abated - just in the time, but this could be an issue."

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.
