Absolutely gorgeous spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly situated overlooking the river and with the three decks, it was just right for our big family to enjoy the amazing location.

The swimming hole with a great jumping-off rock provided a wonderfully refreshing activity when we returned in the afternoon after hiking in the Valley. John was responsive to my questions leading up to our stay and we were able to arrange early check in in order to get the most out of our arrival day.

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Cabin was very nice and comfortable. Everything that we needed was

there. The Pine Market is only a couple blocks away. This made it handy for the small things we needed liked Ice. Cabin was clean. We loved the evenings on the deck. We plan on renting the cabin next year.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. The location was great, felt private, balconies everywhere, the view is incredible & it was just the right size. I'll admit that the layout/floorplan was a bit different but that was one of the things that made it even more memorable. So many beds (literally enough for 10 plus someone on a cot if needed) At one point, we had the cot on the balcony so someone could take a nap outside with the sound of the Merced River flowing in the background. Totally recommend.

Great 3 bedroom cabin outside the hustle and bustle of Yosemite. Nice river view from the back porch great for relaxing Everything was clean as expected and everything was included to make our stay hospitable. Wish there was bath soap and coffee but otherwise had everything. We used this as our base camp for visiting Yosemite which was about a 30-40 commute through mountainous roads. Overall for our preferences I could not imagine a better place to stay for visiting Yosemite I would highly recommend. Cheers.

Cozy, comfortable, content

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful few days we just spent at this river front cabin. Spring of 2017 has been very good to Yosemite. The river is stunning and very full and fast. The cabin has picture windows that look directly over the river. Be assured the few items that have been mentioned in previous reviews have all been rectified. The master bedroom closet was available for our use, the kitchen is fully stocked with essential items and there were plenty of clean, fresh towels for our use. No tv reception, but come on people, you're in Yosemite! You shouldn't be watching tv anyway. The little kitchen made meal planning and executing quite the adventure, but certainly doable. The big dining table was perfect for meals and card playing. We are already planning our next trip for Spring of 2018.
