About the property

Sleeps 6, 2 Baths, Meadow/Mountain Views, Modern Kitchen, Large Deck, Fireplace

Our cabin is in Wawona, a small village located inside Yosemite National Park. The cabin comfortably sleeps six in two bedrooms and a separate closed-off alcove area. There is a modern kitchen, dining area, and a family room that faces a large stone fire place. One bedroom has a king-size bed; the other bedroom has a queen-size bed. The alcove area has a trundle bed with two twin-size beds.

The modern kitchen has a gas cook top and oven, large refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and abundant cooking and eating utensils.

The family room has an L-shaped sofa and rocking chair, free Dish TV and Wi-Fi, ceiling fan, and a large fire place (great during winter). Ample firewood is provided at no charge. The dining room table sits six comfortably and the kitchen bar seats an additional two guests.

There are two bathrooms (shower in one, tub and shower in the other). A washer and dryer are also in the cabin and are provided at no extra cost.

A large deck surrounds the cabin and provides unobstructed views of Wawona Dome and an adjacent meadow where deer and other wildlife often gather. The deck is furnished with tables and chairs for more than ten people and a propane barbecue.

The cabin has forced-air heating to keep you warm during winter nights and a ceiling fan to help cool you during the summer.

Parking for five cars in a circular driveway provides easy all-year access off of the paved road.

The cabin is within 45 minutes driving time of Yosemite Valley where you can walk in the steps of John Muir as you view Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Half Dome, Cathedral Spires, El Capitan, and Mirror Lake. You can also hike to Vernal Falls, Nevada Falls, and Half Dome through Happy Isles and along the Mist Trail.

The cabin is also within 50 minutes of Badger Pass Ski Area and Glacier Point. In the winter, Badger Pass offers downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. At Glacier Point, you will have a panoramic view of Yosemite Valley, the park's many water falls, and Half Dome. It is also a trail head for the 8-mile spectacular Panorama Trail to the Valley floor along which you will view Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls up close (but not too close).

The cabin is also a short drive to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Redwood Trees. Take the tram or hike and enjoy the experience; it is worth it.

The village of Wawona is minutes away from the cabin with a country store, post office, gas station, stables, the historic Wawona Hotel, the Yosemite Pioneer History Center, and the beautiful Wawona Golf Course.

On Saturday evenings, check to see if there is a barn dance at the Pioneer Yosemite History Center or an outdoor barbeque at the Wawona Hotel. The whole family will enjoy it.

From the cabin you are also minutes away from swimming or fishing in the Merced River. A secret spot to enjoy the river is near the flat rock, across the road and down the hill from the Wawona School in the village. You can also take a leisurely hike to the swinging bridge over the south fork of the Merced River or a more challenging hike to the top of Chilnualna Falls.

There is even a public library just down the street from the cabin if you want a quiet spot to relax, read, and research your next excursion.

About Diane Martin

Two families have owned and enjoyed this cabin for over 20 years. It has been a cherished spot for many family vacations, retreats, and reunions.

The owners have continued to update the cabin with new tile and carpeting, modern appliances, comfortable beds and furniture, and a unique deck that surrounds the cabin and offers wonderful views. The owners treat this cabin like their home because it is, and they want their guests to experience the same joy, wonder, and happiness that Yosemite has provided their families throughout the years.

Diane Martin purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Diane Martin chose Yosemite Area

The cabin is actually inside Yosemite National Park, not in an adjoining town or area. It is located next to an open meadow and has a great view of Wawona Dome, which turns golden as the sun sets. The accommodations are modern, convenient, and comfortable. This cabin will enable our guests to enjoy fully a true Yosemite experience in a private home without worrying about trying to secure campground or hotel reservations.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is warm and comfortable. After a day of hiking or golfing in the spring, summer, or fall, you can spend a lovely evening on the large deck, enjoying a barbecue dinner, the incomparable view of the alpenglow that basks Wawona Dome, and the deer that stroll across the adjacent meadow. After a day of skiing or snowshoeing in the winter, you can prepare your favorite drink and snacks as you relax or read in front of a roaring fire.

And, in any season, you can watch the free satellite TV or hop on the internet. But don't spend too much time doing this; after all, you are in Yosemite!

What a nice couples weekend spent at this lovely cabin. Access to many trails right from the cabin was a treat. The short hick to the swinging bridge was quite a surprise for us. The cabin had everything we needed for a long weekend getaway trip with friends. The nights were cold so the fireplace, with the provided wood, made it even more special. We will definitely come back.

Not one thing missing!

  • 5 of 5

When it comes to convenience, a view and comfort, this lovely cabin has it all! I was one in a family group of six adults and two toddlers and believe it or not, all of us were very comfortable. The beautiful fireplace kept the cabin warm and the dining table was large enough for all of us to enjoy a family meal together. I also want to add that the cabin was very clean and everything in it was well taken care of. It didn't matter whether we chose to drive 40 minutes to the Yosemite Village or stay in the Wawona Village because both offer beautiful views, wildlife, and plenty to do. I especially enjoyed hiking in the rain, thunder and lightening. I definitely would recommend this to family and friends.

So Great We HAD To Come Back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in this amazing cabin, and is the perfect place to escape the hustle-and-bustle of our busy lives. Our kids love playing in the large space that is visible from the living room, and I love drinking coffee on the large deck that looks out on Wawona Dome. The cabin is well stocked with all the necessary supplies, and is an easy drive to Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Redwoods. We LOVE this place!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cabin many times, primarily for the view. From the large deck, the eastern view looks out over a meadow with Wawona Dome in the background. There is a large boulder in the middle of the meadow that we all climbed on for a family photo. The kitchen is well stocked, plenty of beds for a family of five. A short walk down the road is the Chilnualna Falls Trail, a great hike with water alongside for most of the trail. We love this place!
