"The cabin is amazing and has great facilities. We were pleasantly surprised by the game room and the boat. The cabin is about a 1 hour drive away from Yosemite. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return if the opportunity comes!"Guest: Kyung Taeck M. Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 31, 2014View listing
"Very nice! We had an amazing vacation! The home served all our needs! It was an easy drive to Yosemite and surrounding towns. The house was clean and very comfortable. Don't forget to bring your bath soap and other toiletries! I wouldn't hesitate in staying again! Thanks Joe!"Guest: Judy B. Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: January 7, 2015View listing
"We recently stayed at Merry Posy Ranch for 3 nights for our stop over to yosemite and bass lake, and it's too bad we couldn't stay longer. The pictures don't do it full justice. The views from the patio were amazing, the home itself was very cozy and comfortable and having the pool was such a bonus while traveling with kids. The only draw back was the television, there's only one, so if your not use to falling asleep without background sounds it might take an adjustment but it's so absolutely stunning and peaceful that we would stay outside watching the stars until it was bed time so it really didn't affect our family. The house was also so accommodating, we've stayed in rentals where you were lucky to have basic toiletries, Merry Posy has pool toys, plush towels and blankets, extra kitchen items like spices and ziploc bags that might not sound like a big deal but really make you grateful when you're used to having them at your disposal like at your own home. I would definitely recommend this rental and if I return to the area this is where I'll be heading!"Guest: Jessica Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 21, 2014View listing
"Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Minutes from the west entrance of yosemite (hwy 120). Well equipped kitchen and weber grill outside allowed for easy prep of breakfasts and dinners before and after days in the park. Very quiet location - rare to see a vehicle drive past the home. Highly recommend."Guest: SJL Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 8, 2014View listing

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.
