About the property

Large home with great deck space and swim spa, perfect for entertaining family!

Welcome to Nelder Creek Cabin! This home finished a complete remodel down to the stud in 2014. The home has 5 bedrooms each with their own bathrooms perfect for privacy. We also have a brand new kitchen with Thermador stainless steel appliances such as a built-in coffee maker, 2 dishwashers, and a 48' side by side refrigerator. We've also created an outdoor dining area perfect for those warm summer nights to dine outside listening to the creek and watching the stars. The outdoor deck has also been expanded to host large groups or parties and over looks the beautiful grounds and river. The deck has been suited with outdoor speakers for great entertainment during your stay. We've also added a media room with 7.1 surround sound for those movie nights - perfect for the kids and the whole family to enjoy. This brand new house was established to service the large groups of families that vacation to Yosemite and would all like to stay together in a comfortable and spacious property. *During California's ongoing drought, we cannot permit outdoor fires on our property. We are sorry for this but we love our national/state parks and would be disappointed in ourselves for letting any accident mar their beauty. Thank you for understanding.*

Beautiful setting and great layout of the house

  • 3 of 5

We had a family reunion at the house and really enjoyed being together. The house has a great layout and the younger ones loved playing in the creek. There were a few issues that we found that would make this house even greater. The swim spa was not in good shape. The owner was there to try to fix, but in the end, a person in our party bought chemicals to make it work. There weren't wastebaskets in two of the bathrooms, and no towel rack in the Master bath, the icemaker advertised didn't work, and there was no griddle for the stove as advertised. Two of the bedrooms had no dressers, and the Master had no access to the closet so could not hang clothes. The driveway down to the property is deeply rutted. As I said, all these seem minor but I think that if the owner or management company can make some corrections, this would be a great place.

Large property with potential

  • 3 of 5

We arrived at dusk in the snow and were a bit apprehensive. The driveway was steep, pot-holed and slippery. The house was an odd layout with one bedroom right off the kitchen/dining area - so not good for someone who wants quiet from the group. Two of the bedrooms shared a bathroom - so potential 8 people sharing 1 bathroom while all the other bathroom were used only by 2 people. One set of bunk beds was assembled incorrectly and hence broken and unusable. I tried contacting the owner several times and never received a response. The house sleeps 14-16 people, yet there was only eating space indoors for 10.

High end property home, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

House was absolutely perfect for our family reunion. We had 14 in our party, with ages ranging from 1.5 - 62 years old. House was extremely well furnished ranging from the kitchen to high end electronics in the house.

The stream in the backyard was perfect at keeping the kids entertained, excellent location overall with supermarkets within 5 mins driving distance yet far enough away from town to enjoy the forest.

Yosemite valley was a little over an hour away but we didn't mind the beautiful drive. The location of the house was perfect for our family.

What was a little concerning is getting a reply from EJ through email, had questions and never received a response. Drive way down to the property is a gravel road that previous floods have eroded leaving large pot holes.

Aside from what was mentioned previously we were all very happy with the property, house and location and would definitely stay again in the future. Thank you for the priceless memories.

Incredible Space and Location for the Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible home and the just like the listing states, it's newly renovated and you can tell by the smell of new home when we walked in. There was plenty of space for all 15 in our group - none of us felt like we were all on top of each other. The media room was great for the kids while the adults enjoyed the great room. The kitchen was HUGE with plenty of seating. It was great to be able to cook, talk to everyone, and watch TV all at the same time. The backyard was beyond AMAZING - the kids really enjoyed the creek and the adults had a great time watching them from the covered deck. Talk about an indoor/outdoor setup, there's a TV in the covered deck and a dining area perfect for those meals under the stars. Our family is already talking of our next trip to this wonderful home!
