Guestbook comments from the owner

Cooked, walked, relaxed, played board games and brought in the New Year.

We love the place but could have used a rolling pin, but I suppose not many people make

their own pizza in a cabing. PS: There is now a rolling pin for pizza.

We had wood burning fires every day to enjoy.

Staying at this log cabin is highly recommended.

Awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bob and Eleanor's cabin. It is rustic, yet first class accommodations in every way. Bob literally "left the lights on for us" for our late arrival. I loved that he communicated with us by phone instead of email. A very personal touch. We even got a chance to meet him (nice guy!) and his dogs Lucky and Amber (the new puppy). The cabin is an hour to Yosemite entrance and a beautiful drive. We wished we could have stayed longer and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Wonderful stay! The only thing we would change if staying again is traveling there by Highway 49 between Mariposa and Murphys. We came down this route in the dark and didn't realize until the drive back in the daylight how treacherous the narrow roads and sudden drop offs were. The GPS took us this way, and although it may be actually closer, I'm pretty sure it was longer as I drove only about 15 miles an hour at times. VERY SCAREY!

All the perks of home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time here! We've been renting VRBO homes for years and this place was amazing! Modern amenities-thumbs up on the kitchen, master bath, comfortable mattress master, full sized washer and dryer. Our only regret was it was a bit too warm outside so we didn't get to use the fireplace or outdoor pit. If you're a birder, bring your binoculars! There are so many types of birds including California quails that hang out literally on the big mound outside the dining room window. And stars! When you come from a large city you don't get to see such beauty. While staying at the house we ventured to 3 National Parks-Kings Canyon, Sequoia, and Yosemite. It was a lot of driving each day but well worth it. One hint, don't go in through the south entrance, hwy 41, to Yosemite best to go in through the Arch entrance, hwy 140. We did the south entrance once and though pretty, many hairpin turns! In nearby Mariposa, there's a cute pie shop called Jantz Bakery that you should check out.

My dream home is now a log cabin!

  • 5 of 5

When you travel 6h by plane to come see California for the 1st time... everything matters! And after renting 6 places along route 1 until LA and back to SF through forests and parks, I have enough info to be able to compare them all.

We rented this place knowing it is going to be 1h drive to Yosemite (mid entrance) but it looked gorgeous in the pictures and we simply had to experience a log cabin!

What a great find! I am so thrilled with my choice!

This rental is not only charming but spotless and spacious. Very roomy: the perfect size for our family to feel home, but could have easily accommodated another family sleeping in the office & living. The attention to details has far surpassed our expectations: very clean… nicely decorated.

Not only is the house gorgeous and has a great layout but these are people who truly care about their home, as well as the people staying in it.

Thank you!

If Cali was a great experience for us, it is also because of you.
