Overview

Yosemite National Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy all the comforts of home and the majesty of Yosemite National Park in a beautifully furnished home that sleeps up to 8. Our cabin situated on a hillside is wrapped by a large redwood deck that runs from the kitchen door to the front of the cabin.

Our tastefully decorated cabin is located 'inside' the park, twenty two miles from the valley floor. The cabin is located on the south side of the park very near the historic Wawona Hotel and golf course. The south side of the park has it's own unique beauty with less of the crowds.

You can hike along riverside trails, take a dip in a swimming hole in the Merced River, marvel at the giant Sequoia trees, ski at Badger Pass, visit the famous Yosemite Valley just a 40 minute drive away or just relax by a crackling fire. A wonderful destination for several couples, a family of 6-8 or two families of 4

Why Diane Martin chose Yosemite National Park

Eric grew up near Yosemite National Park and visited there often. Both his parents are also from that area. We wanted a spot that we could reach by car that offered both mountains and water. We never dreamed we would be lucky enough to own a home in Yosemite National Park

What makes this house unique

The Merced River is a beautiful river fed by the Sierra snow melt in the spring and summer. We spend many days lounging by the river, using rafts to play in the gentle rapids and cool off in the crystal clear water. Our home is located on the south side of the Park and 45 minutes from the Valley. It is rarely crowded in Wawona but still offers the beauty and hiking of the famous Yosemite Valley. The Valley a 'must see' for new visitors is easy to visit. It is a wonderful day trip with lots to do and enjoy

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had such a wonderful time in your cabin! We especially enjoyed working on puzzles on the deck at night and cooking great meals in your beautiful kitchen

Our FAVORITE annual getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5
EXCELLENT is the first words out of my mouth. My family and I come here once to twice a year to get away from all the crazy hassles of living in the city to relax and enjoy a few days in Yosemite. My kids look forward to it each year too. They have WiFi here which my kids and I totally enjoy. Rare to see a cabin with WiFi, but having it allows my family to stay connected via internet and do work and text friends. The cabin is huge, kitchen is wonderful and the patio area is unbelievable. We actually go to this cabin so we can live an upgraded life from our current home. The Cabin is HUGE!!! Our trip to the cabin has never been disappointing, we love the hikes, the BBQing, playing by the river and just plain ol' relaxing. If you are a city slicker like me and you don't like camping or renting a small stuffy cabin because you need hot water and luxurious bathrooms and kitchen, well then this is a MUST for YOU! Keep up the good work. We'll be back again soon!

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5
We love this home, we keep coming back because it is so comfy and very clean. Summer is best with trailheads right outside the door. Easy walk to river for swimming, easy walk to little market with all essentials in stock. Fully equipped but do bring all the essentials listed--the kitchen does get emptied by the cleaning staff. The decks, the furnishings, the kitchen, all very nice. Check out the "Singing Bridge" the water hole by the school, Wawona Hotel, even a golf course. Lots of wildlife. waterfalls nearby. Enjoy, we will return again.

Don't Lock Me Out!

Don't Lock Me Out!
  • 3 of 5
This 2 bedroom 2 bath house was beautiful but there were enough things that bothered us, so we wouldn’t stay there again. The master bedroom has a master bathroom that was padlocked shut so we had to share the bathroom down the hall. There is no dresser or closet in the master bedroom so there's nowhere to put your clothes. The close hallway closets, like the master bathroom, were locked. The wireless (DSL) internet did not work the entire week we were there. The TV in the downstairs family room had an "out of order" sign on it. There is a smaller TV upstairs on the main level. Upon arrival, we were told we would be responsible for bringing paper products and garbage bags. Having arrived late at night without these items, the office manager gave us extra garbage bags. We were lucky that the previous tenants left paper towels and toilet paper (no napkins or tissues, though). The refrigerator is cleaned out totally before your stay so there are no condiments like ketchup or mustard left behind. There are no spices either. You even need to bring your own salt and pepper. About half of the kitchen cabinets and drawers were locked. The BBQ grill was in a poor location relative to the kitchen.It was behind the house in a dark and dingy area. The spot light for the grill is very far away so when it's dark out, you’ll need a flashlight to grill. There were no BBQ cooking utensils and charcoal is pricey at the local store. The sign on the wood burning fireplace said not to use it after June so we didn’t. Bummer! This may sound petty but there are over 50 light switches in the house (we counted them for fun) so turning on some of them can be a frustrating challenge. After a week I still couldn't figure out how to turn on the lights on the crucial outside steps. The stove burners cut out when you set them on low. The downstairs shower allows a good deal of water to escape onto the bathroom floor via a gap at the shower door, making quite a mess. However....The house is beautiful and the kitchen, modern. Beds were very comfortable and linens and towels are provided.The house is private and has only one house nearby. There was a piano and one bike. Lots of books and games, too. In summary, we were disappointed to be locked out of some crucial areas of the house. Having to provide basic necessities like napkins, paper towels, salt and toilet paper, for a house of this caliber and expense, was disappointing.

Owner's Response: We are sorry this guest was frustrated about a number of issues. This is a family owned second home and we do "lock off" limited areas of our home to allow for
storage of our personal belongings, clothes, skis etc.. Owner lockoffs is not an uncommon phenomenon.The internet problem was caused by a previous renter and has been repaired. The lower level with the leaky shower is no longer offered for rent. The cabin is very well maintained and we are confident you would enjoy your stay

Good But Not Good Enough

  • 3 of 5
The house was beautiful but there were enough things that bothered us, so we wouldn’t stay there again. For starters, the cleaning fee was $150, not $100 as advertised. The master bedroom has a master bathroom that was padlocked shut. My wife and I had to use the bathroom down the hall which we shared with one of our sons. There is no dresser or closet in the master bedroom so there's nowhere to put your clothes. The close hallway closets, like the master bathroom, were locked.
The wireless (DSL) internet did not work the entire week we were there. The TV in the downstairs family room had an "out of order" sign on it. There is a smaller TV upstairs on the main level.
Upon arrival, we were told we would be responsible for bringing paper products and garbage bags. Having arrived late at night without these items, the office manager gave us extra garbage bags. We were lucky that the previous tenants left paper towels and toilet paper (no napkins or tissues, though).

we love your cabin

  • 5 of 5
Your beautiful cabin made our family vacation very relaxing, great location for all fun in the park yet out of the hustle of the valley. We felt at home and enjoyed our entire stay. The kitchen is terrific and the cabin is maintained beautifully. Thank you.
