Rick bought this log home in 1982 when working at the Yosemite Climbing School. He lived in the home until moving to the Eastern Sierra when he then could make the home into a vacation rental home. Rick cares for the home diligently as it is clean,

well maintained and he refers to the home as 'The Mansion' as it is a spacious true

Yosemite home.

Rick Cashner, Annie Barrett purchased this cabin in 1984

It is unique to own a home INSIDE Yosemite National Park and homes as such are very very limited.

Rick bought this home because of his life long love of Yosemite as well as his employment there, the excellent location, and the rural history of Foresta is very appealing.

Quiet, views, location inside Yosemite National Park. A fun place to be - a log cabin in Yosemite!

Very comfortable cabin

We had a great time at this cabin over the New Year holiday. We had expected snow but it was actually warm, which meant we didn't need to worry about tire chains. Even without the snow our small car's tires lost traction a bit getting up the hill to the house, but it was only a minor problem. The owner had recommended using a 4WD if possible.

Inside, the cabin was comfortable with large sofas and lots of sleeping space. For 6 adults it was a perfect fit. Firewood was available for the fireplace but the heater kept the place plenty warm without it. The owner is very responsive to emails and helpful. Her artwork is displayed in the house and was also in the Ansel Adams Gallery in the Valley!

I would definitely recommend this cabin, eating breakfast on the deck in the morning is to die for.

We had a wonderful time in the Half Dome View cabin. Its well provided for - lots of beds and kitchen supplies to make it an easy place to host a family, without being overly fussy or complicated. Its great that its so close to the valley, and was a nice place to spend some hours together, enjoying the peaceful views from the front deck, or cooking together inside.

Everything on the listing was accurate, and you are in a GREAT location. It's located inside the park and in a secluded area so you can enjoy the silence and the stars at night. I traveled to Clouds Rest, drove by Half Dome, went to Vernal Falls, and much more, and the location was perfect for going to those places.

The interior of the half dome view house was very cozy and I really enjoyed the place. The pictures are extremely accurate. Just to be clearer on the beds and rooms, there is one bedroom downstairs with a queen bed. Upstairs, it's basically a loft where there are two queen beds and one single bed. There was also a room upstairs with a queen bed. I believe there was a sofa bed downstairs as well, but I didn't use to it so I'm not sure. But for sure, it can fit plenty of people, so no need to worry about that. The owner provided so many things. There were pots and pans, a washer and dryer, detergent, silverware, towels, basically ANYTHING you could think of. I brought a lot of supplies just in case, but rarely needed them because everything was provided.

The owner I was in contact with, Annie, was extremely helpful and understanding and she answered all my questions very promptly. The information she provided regarding the cabin was very helpful and you will need them to find the cabin. Your navigation system will not work in the park most of the time, and her directions are very detailed and easy to follow so you will not get lost. Overall, I would recommend this to anybody and I enjoyed my time there immensely!

Great views in Foresta

Just spent 4 nights with extended family. It was plenty spacious and well equipped - plenty of towels, blankets, beds, kitchen equipment etc...

During our visit (Aug 2013) there was a fire to the north and west of the property. We could see smoke over the ridge but never smelled smoke and we weren't bothered by the fire. Prior to arriving we had contacted the owners and they were both very honest, concerned and helpful in understanding the fire circumstances.

The house is a 15 min drive to the Yosemite valley floor. Each of the days we ate breakfast, packed lunch and went out exploring - it was very convenient for these purposes. We came back each afternoon to cook dinner and hang out on the deck which has just amazing views - El Capitan and the stars at night.

We had two kids with us and they were totally entertained, we walked to a stream in front of the house and splashed in the water and the kids panned for gold (unsuccessfully of course).

The drive to the cabin is along pretty twisty roads which isn't a problem in the summer. In winter I think this house as well as all of Yosemite would be some treacherous driving - Chains on tires for sure. This is true for much of Yosemite though.

There is only one shower but two bathrooms. There is wi-fi, but it would get a bit spotty and shouldn't be relied on if you need it to work well at a specific time.

The best was sitting on the large deck and looking at the stars - it is truly incredible views.
