About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Maximum 2 guests)

Foresta Ridge Cabin is located INSIDE Yosemite National Park in a quiet historic area of the park at 4,300 foot elevation, surrounded by pine and cedar forest. The cabin is closed Nov-Apr. It's location is convenient to most of the Park with Yosemite Valley and the Merced River only 10 minutes away. The Tioga Road (Hwy 120) to the high country is nearby. The rural roads in Foresta are excellent for mountain bikes.

Pleasant walks through the community lead to Big Meadow with its pioneer era barns and nearby Native American grinding rock. There are swimming holes on the nearby creek.A short drive takes you to the famous features for which Yosemite is known.

The cabin has log siding and is themed in the rustic lodge style with comfort in mind. The cabin was built in 1993 on the site of an 1950's cabin and was just remodeled throughout. A binder of suggested day trips and park activities is provided in the cabin.

Keywords: Cozy lodge style cabin,living room separate bedroom, complete kitchen and patio area. Quiet private area of the park.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: Doug and Maggie raised their two sons here on the adjoining property. Doug moved to Yosemite in 1972 and lived in his Foresta home since 1976. They both worked for the National Park Service for 30 years in Yosemite. Doug worked in historic preservation restoring historic park buildings including the two 1880 era barns on the Big Meadow just down the hill from the cabin. Doug and Maggie's love and knowledge of Yosemite is extensive. A binder of suggested day trips and activities is provided in the cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Foresta, CA, USA:
I worked in Yosemite and a chance to own a home inside the park was a rare and lucky find in the 1970's and practically unattainable today.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Foresta is a special community spread out, allowing for privacy and quiet. The beauty of Yosemite speaks for itself.
