  • The best bang for our buck!!

    "This was an amazing rental property that comfortably house my family of 9 for our Yosemite visit. Ashok was very helpful and answered all my questions I sent him in a very timely manner. The home is fully equipped with everything one a need. There are even some extras like the foos ball table and ping pong table. The lake was only 2 miles away which has a very affordable snack bar with adult libations. It was a very peaceful home and we were visited my deer every morning!"

  • A place to call home.

    "Wanting to celebrate mine and my boyfriends one year of being together, we decided on renting a cabin somewhere last minute. After a long search, we came across this listing for the Lupin cabin. It was absolutely perfect! It was just like a little home and seemed so welcoming. We booked the dates immediately! We did however get an email saying if we wanted to switch our cabin to the back cabin (Sage) so that we would have more privacy...best decision ever! We were very impressed when we first arrived. It was in a very quiet and peaceful area. The cabin was exactly what we wanted. It had all the amenities and it was so cozy. The cabin is pretty close to favorite spots in Yosemite...The Bridalveil fall, Curry Village, Mirror Lake, Vernal Falls, Yosemite Village, Yosemite Falls and The Awhawnee as well. After long days of exploring it was nice to come home to a warm cabin and a big comfy bed. We very much recommend staying here! Great for family, personal vacation, romantic getaway etc. etc. We can not wait to come back to Yosemite and believe us...we'll know where to stay. Thanks Steve! P.s What even made this place even more special to us is...We got engaged! :)"

  • yosemite & bass lake vacation

    "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!"

  • Tall Red Cabin

    "This was the second time I stayed at the Tall Red Cabin, and it was wonderful. The cabin is quiet and peaceful, spotless clean, and cozy. We had lovely fires, took some great hikes right outside the door, and felt so rested and relaxed after our stay."

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.
