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.

Great location and great little house. Only issue is we keep forgetting to bring paper towels and toilet paper. Small little store within walking distance to buy supplies we forgot to bring.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was well equipped with most everything you'd need except for a hairdryer (so ladies, come prepared). The location is fantastic, with the river right below. Enjoyed the swinging bridge loop hike which can be started and ended from cabin without moving your car. The decks were lovely in mid day but on our April trip is was too chilly to enjoy during the early evening hours. Must be lovely in the summer months. Owner John was very responsive with getting back to me within minutes/hour of me emailing him with questions. Only wish would be that the spa would have been slightly hotter.

Best Location on the River

  • 4 of 5

Loved this quirky little cabin and its location on the river. Although the cabin is old, it's clean and nicely updated with comfy beds, bed linens, and plenty of towels for everyone. Very conveniently located near the little grocery store that has whatever you may need. The river views from the back of the cabin are magnificent!

Great time in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, much due to how cozy and beautiful the home was. After long days enjoying the National Park this was a perfect home to come back to and relax. The view overlooking a river was so nice.
