Yosemite National Park Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This Yosemite vacation rental home is located INSIDE Yosemite National Park. It offers quality clean lodging for your vacation with fantastic views into Yosemite Valley of El Capitan and Half Dome! Rent any time of year! It is only 11 minutes to Yosemite Valley from the Half Dome View Home!

The 2014 El Portal fire leaves some of the land near the cabin burned and clear for great views. Spring 2015 will bring new growth, lupines, but for now the area near the home is blackened from recent fire. It does not affect the home which is terrific and a wonderful vacation spot.

This super clean, self-catering, private rental home is an ideal base camp for visitors exploring the Yosemite National Park area.

With the excellent location, views, all linens provided, full kitchen, satellite TV and NOW HAVE INTERNET AT THE HOME.

About Rick Cashner, Annie Barrett

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

Why Rick Cashner, Annie Barrett chose Yosemite National Park

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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

The place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (five of us) stayed here a few days ago. What a wonderful cabin it is. Sitting on the deck watching the sunset/rise on El Capitan and Half dome was sublime! The cabin has everything and is very comfortable. Our only regret was we were only there for 2 nights!
Couldn't recommend it more.

One hot property!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Looking for a rustic, comfortable dwelling with all amenities of home, in a beautiful setting with great views? THIS IS IT. Our family of 7 plus 1 friend (8 total) wanted to see Yosemite on our family vacation. In searching for lodging, we were referred to these owners by another facility that was already booked for our dates. We spoke with both Rick and Annie on several occasions and booked the Half Dome View (HDV) house. Being inside the boundaries of the park is a huge plus, as far as not having to deal with entry traffic, as we were staying for 5 nights. HDV was a great base of operations for our day trips exploring the marvelous diversity of flora, fauna, geology, and beauty of Yosemite. However, my review focuses on the hosts/homeowners. After patiently and completely answering all our questions, both before and after we confirmed and paid for HDV rental, the owners also offered helpful advice on many details of how to make our visit more efficient and enjoyable. The morning after our 3rd night, our party split up for the day, with 3 of us going to Tenaya Lake while the other 5 went hiking to North Dome. We 3 returned early and 30 minutes later were startled by a neighbor banging on the door, informing us that an out-of-control fire was rapidly coming up the mountain behind our house and we might want to pack up some things in case we were ordered to evacuate. We went into hyperdrive, grabbing everything in sight, throwing it in our car. As the afternoon sun on this cloudless day was blacked out by the billowing smoke behind the house, and the exhortations of "We need to go!" from my wife became more frequent and urgent, we jumped in our car and made our exit. In a remarkable "coincidence", as we approached the roadblock at the main road, we saw our kids, who had arrived there about 3 minutes previously, totally unaware of the situation. All this happened in a 30-45 minute time frame, and as we were exiting the park itself, we received a communication from Annie urgently wanting to know if we were OK. Learning that we were safely outside the park and headed home two days early, she gave us assurances that they would do whatever they could to salvage the things we left behind and refund un-used nights. Although they were not allowed to see their house for 6 more days, they kept in contact with us, handling all our concerns. THESE PEOPLE CARE ABOUT THEIR RENTERS! THANK YOU SO MUCH, RICK AND ANNIE!

Owner's Response: Indeed, what a time that was about the fire, evacuations, and details! While emergencies are real and time sensitive, one does meet the greatest people along the way!!! These renters were absolutely wonderful, level headed in time of emergency, and we hope they return some day! Luckily, no one was hurt and the home did not burn. We are very diligent about keeping the property raked and cleared of unwanted vegetation and this is largely why the home was spared during this fire. With California's drought, the threat and impact of dryness and fire is certainly real throughout all of California and the West. The good thing is that, because the fire cleared some of the area, another fire would not be likely in the area for many years. We have excellent emergency services, rangers who patrol the area, 911, and the fire crews did a fantastic job of fighting the fire and getting it under control. As Foresta is INSIDE Yosemite National Park, it is very much still a special place, and the views and the home are in great shape and very unique and lovely. We have had renters since the fire and they are all greatly enjoying the home, it's great access to Yosemite Valley and the beautiful view from the home and deck. We are happy to answer questions about Yosemite to help our renters have a fun trip and make the most out of their time in Yosemite. Indeed, Yosemite is our favorite place and we enjoy sharing our home with others who also appreciate nature, family, and learning about and enjoying this incredible place of Yosemite.

Our party of 9 had a wonderful time staying at this home. The beds were comfortable, kitchen/dining spacious. Outdoor grill and deck seating wonderful. Easy to get to the Valley and so quiet and private!

Family Stay in Yosemite Valley

  • 5 of 5
This property is not too far off the main road, very comfortable, has a very well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and terrific scenery. The Foresta road sign is missing at the turn, but it is shown well on the park map. The owner was very helpful before our stay. The property was as advertised and more; the personal art gallery on the walls was a great unexpected addition.

Lovely home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
If you would like to rent a home while visiting Yosemite Valley, Foresta is the place to be. It's a lovely, quiet setting, just 7 miles from the valley but away of the sometimes frustrating crowds. If one day you don't feel like going to the valley, you can hike around Foresta or relax with the wonderful views from this house.

The Half Dome View house is set up very nicely, and it'd be great for a couple with several kids. Highly recommended!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was perfect, and close to my favorite part of the trip. The view from the front deck rivaled those throughout the park. It was clean, quiet, & serene. We were able to get down to the valley in about 20 minutes, which meant we could do morning hikes, siesta, and then head back out for afternoon/evening hikes. We watched the sun come up over the peaks in view, then had a treat when the sky cleared enough one night to see the moon rise as well. The wifi in the cabin allows email, but not much else, which was perfect for us since we could respond to emergencies but not get pulled back into the usual social media temptations. The layout is great - two bedrooms and then an open loft that has an additional 3 beds. It was lovely.
