New Beginnings is a quaint, 716 sq.ft. home that sleeps a maximum of 6 guests, and is Pet Friendly. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking and enjoying your meals. In the living room there is a woodstove (firewood provided in season), satellite TV, DVD & VCR players, and DSL/WIFI. The deck with its picnic table and gas BBQ is perfect for outdoor grilling and dining. Just off the deck, there is a small wooden bridge over a seasonal stream, which leads to a beautiful open meadow and forested area. There is also a natural, small clearing surrounded by trees and rocks, which is the perfect spot for hosting a small outdoor wedding or reception.
Our home is located in the little community of Wawona, 6 miles INSIDE the south entrance of Yosemite National Park. It makes a wonderful home base while you explore and play in Yosemite.
Depending on the season, there is always something special to enjoy!
During the summer, you have the opportunity to relax in the Merced River & cascading waterfalls, enjoy a hike to nearby Chilnualna Falls, the Swinging Bridge, and the Meadow Loop Trail. Enjoy fine dining & play golf at the historic Wawona Hotel, go horseback riding, enjoy Ranger walks and talks, or visit the Living History Center.
In the fall, the colors are spectacular as you enjoy the walking path around the golf course of the nearby historic Wawona Hotel. See the nearby famous Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.
In the winter, the family-friendly Badger Pass Ski Area offers snowshoeing, snowboarding, skiing, cross-country ski tours, and in Yosemite Valley enjoy the outdoor ice skating rink.
In the spring, the rivers and waterfalls throughout the Park, including nearby Chilnualna Falls, are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Come enjoy and relax in the welcoming atmosphere of our unique community.

The house was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with the essential utensils/tools we needed. For 3 of us we felt the house was roomy. It had comfortable, well made beds, and had a very clean, new bathroom. Since cell phone usage was "iffy" it was comforting to have a working phone in the house. We were all charmed by the town and beauty of the location. The Redwoods at Yosemite made the process of arranging the booking and checking in and out a breeze.
The location of the property was perfect, not wanting to stay in the valley. Our cabin was superb. Clean, organized and with all the ammentities needed. This will forever be our choice and would highly recommend The Redwoods at Yosemite. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
We really enjoyed staying here, it was exactly what we needed. Wish we had brought our own coffee as well as some sharper knives to use in the kitchen but otherwise it was great!
I would definitely let people know, that if you arrive late in the evening, there is really no where close to grab a quick bite to eat. Plan to bring your dinner that first evening so you are not driving around like we were. We would definitely stay again!
Great location! Wonderful, roomy cottage! Very clean, all the amenities! Loved our visit!! Thoughtful owners have included a working landline telephone and even internet and cable tv. Cell phones did not work in this area. We were glad to see the nearby grocery store and gas station. Our stay was awesome!
Rooms we're decently sized, kitchen was well stocked with all utensils needed and it was VERY nice to be inside the actual park. The location is great and you're very close to supplies/gas if you need them. It was not a bad a place at all, just average (as the 3 stars attest to). If you're going to be spending all of your time in the Valley or surrounding area this is a good spot.
1. Lack of A/C. It's not stated on the website so I can't fault them, but it gets quite hot during the summer and the fans provided in the unit can only do so much. Come prepared to sweat, or come when it is cooler outside.
2. The booking process was a little archaic. They list on multiple websites but I found it easiest to call as everything seemed to be "email us and we'll get back to you." Properties book up quickly in Yosemite and being able to book electronically would have been useful. Also - a lot of fees were not listed in the price. Be prepared to pay an extra 25% on top of whatever the list price is.
We've stayed in several vacation rentals in Yosemite and Tahoe region, and this unit was comfortably in the middle of the range. Comfortable and clean, but also a little dated and sparse. Actually, it was one of the most sparsely outfitted kitchens I've ever rented, but functional. The location of the unit is good; it backs up to a small gully that leads to a school playing field, and beyond that a playground. We visited with our two year old and it was a nice amount of space to walk around given that time of year. If you were taking the only car into Yosemite, but someone wanted to stay behind, most healthy adults could walk down to see the old buildings, and convenience store.
