About Steve and Marty Bacus

Marty and I are San Francisco Bay Area fugitives - living in Half Moon Bay for nearly 30 years. Marty owned and operated a very successful prepatory school and I worked as a manager with AT&T. We have been married for 38 years and love meeting new people. We are fly fishing enthusiasts and I am a guide school graduate (let me know if you want to go fishing!). I earned an MBA from University of Illinois and Marty holds a BA in education with addiitional Post Grad work. We love to cook, entertain, maintain a modest wine closet and host a annual Oktoberfest party.

We live on site (our property is 7.5 acres) in our home (completed 2011) and are available to ensure our guests are comfortable and have everything needed to make their stay perfect!

Steve and Marty Bacus purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Steve and Marty Bacus chose Yosemite Area

We love the location of our property in the peaceful, scenic Wagner Valley. We have lots of tall pines and oak trees. Mariposa county boasts 356 days of sunshine annually.

Local waterfalls, hiking trails and abundant wildlife (wild turkeys, bobcats, bears, coyotes and deer) make for our eco-system interesting.

What makes this cabin unique

We want to make your stay a highlight! Yosemite is a magical place and all who go there fall in love with the majesty of the Valley - El Capiton, Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls and Yosemite Falls - each one a marvel.

Our property is located in the Wagner Valley, a two mile long valley home of a Llama ranch and open space. Our property in on the southern slope of the valley and forested with mature pines and oak trees.

Bright stars fill the night sky and we often hear the lonely call of coyotes or local owls high in the trees.

Serene Woodland Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Marty and Steve , were the perfect hosts. Their cabin is a woodland paradise. The cabin is warm and inviting, and has lots of windows that let in plenty of light. Simply put the cabin was exactly what we were looking for during our woodsy vacation. As a bonus Steve was kind enough to setup an outdoor fire for us! I would highly recommend staying here if you get the chance, you won't regret it!

P.S. Enjoying wine in front of the fireplace can't be beat .

This cabin and the hosts are more spectacular than we could have ever imagined.

  • 5 of 5

With welcome cookies and a bottle of wine, Steve and Marty greeted us. The cabin is clean, comfortable, fully outfitted with everything you need and more. We enjoyed the outdoor shower, cooking dinner, relaxing after long days hiking in Yosemite and playing some bocce. This cabin is a special place.

An idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Marty's Cabin at Quail Crossing is an idyllic property. In addition to a gorgeous main cabin, with a large living, dining, kitchen area and bathroom, is a separate bunk house, with its own outdoor shower, that is ideal for housing teenagers anxious to escape mom and dad after a day at Yosemite. Close enough to be in Yosemite in 30 minutes but far enough away to escape the summertime crowds, the feeling is one of getting away to your own place in the corner of the woods (or at least a place that many of us dream of having). The entire experience could not have be more perfect.

Steve and Marty were excellent hosts and we regretted not having enough time to get to know both of them better. Their attention to detail in the accommodations was evident everywhere and told us that their guests’ comfort and enjoyment is their prime concern.

We cannot overstate our happiness at having found this gem tucked away in the California woods. Thank you both for a wonderful, too-short, three days at Quail Crossing.

Beautiful Home with a Unique Feature

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home during our vacation at the end of June. Steve and Marty are wonderful hosts, truly concerned about your comfort and enjoyment as their guests.

Our family of six (all grown adult children) came to this location to visit Yosemite, making day trips into the park. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably, with two of the children sleeping in the bunk house.

The home is well stocked with items needed for food preparation and the local grocery store, Greeley Hill Market, is only 2 miles away to purchase your fresh and frozen food supplies. In the mornings we enjoyed coffee on the back deck, which is frequently visited by hummingbirds. We made use of the grill in the evenings for dinner and enjoyed games of bocce ball on their lighted court, under a star filled sky.

One unique feature of the property that everyone had to try was the outdoor shower. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity, it is truly an experience that is not to be missed.

Thanks Steve and Marty for a most memorable vacation stay.

Once in a while you get lucky ... you find what seems to be the PERFECT PLACE for a getaway ... and it turns out to be JUST THAT!!! The Hosts, Steve & Marty (and gentle Wags, the dog) couldn't have been more caring and gracious ... the storybook cabin and bunk house, inside and out, as well as the surrounding woods, MORE than lived up to the photos ... and all amenities were present as promised -- with several extra ones to surprise us!

We spent three glorious days at this beautiful mountain paradise, which Steve and Marty have lovingly created ... every detail met with mindfulness of maximum comfort and enjoyment for their guests. We especially loved the spacious porch looking out over the meadow and the woods, as well as the outdoor fire pit area, complete with picnic table. Steve set up the fire for us each night, and we enjoyed roasting Hot Dogs and S'Mores like never before!

And ... whatever you do ... don't miss out on the GLORIOUS shower in the warmth of the morning sun outside the Bunk House ... with the lovely bonus of a family of deer crossing by each morning like clockwork (I wonder how Steve and Marty trained them to do that??!!).

Also, thanks to our Hosts' recommendation, we had the Brunch of our lifetime at the old Ahwahnee Hotel (now the Majestic) -- the perfect ending to a perfect visit to this mountain paradise near Yosemite!!

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Steve and Marty for their labor of love in creating such a lovely environment ... and, most of all, for the obvious heartfelt efforts they take to provide a perfect and peaceful place for travelers that are lucky enough to discover this magical place!!!

Until Next Time ...

Cute and comfortable little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The cabin is clean, bright, pleasant, quiet, cozy and smelled good. The kitchen is well-stocked and the fireplace added nice ambiance. There are plenty of blankets and the bed in the bedroom is comfortable (we didn't try the sofa bed). The outdoor shower looked like it would be fun in warmer weather. The indoor shower and tub were relaxing; our little kids really enjoyed the tub. The hosts were very nice, thoughtful, and helpful. Welcome cookies were a nice touch. Widespread tree mortality from drought and bark beetle has affected this part of the Sierra Nevada mountains, including Yosemite, and the owners have had to start removing some trees from the property. The cabin is about 35 minutes from the Big Oak Flat park entrance. It's relatively easy to find your way to the cabin and then to and from the park. The cabin is a comfortable and happy place for a family to launch daily excursions to Yosemite.

Owner's Response: Victor & Rebecca were great guests and we would be very happy to have them (and the twins) come again. They were left everything in perfect order and very respectful of our property - we wish them well in the future and hope to have them stay with us again. We highly recommend them to other hosts. Happy Trails, Steve & Marty
