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 highly cared for.
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!
This was a perfect, comfortable cabin for our family. We have two young adult children (18, 21) and it gave us plenty of space and comfort. The view is fantastic. It is so well located, a quick trip to the valley. We loved being able to retreat from the August crowds in the Valley to relax on the deck and appreciate the half dome view. Don't forget to visit the high country. Amazing.
Our group of 10 had a wonderful time during our stay at this cabin which is perfectly located between Yosemite Valley and Toulumne Meadows. We had plenty of room to accommodate the 10 of us and the view from the balcony was awesome. The owner was extremely helpful prior to our arrival and the cabin was stocked with everything we could need during our stay. We would highly recommend this cabin.
We just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at this Half Dome view cabin. The cabin is very spacious and fully furnished. We were happily surprised about the kitchen, as it had everything you could possibly need, including seasonings/spices, small appliances, tons of plates, silverware etc. The front deck was a perfect spot for evening drinks and star gazing. We spent most of our time hiking and biking, and Annie was so helpful in getting us connected with the bike rental shop.
Our original reservation was for 3 adults and a small child. At the last minute, we had an extra guest who decided to come along for part of our stay. Annie was so gracious about the last minute change in reservation.
We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly! The owners take really good care of the cabin and the outdoor space. They are easy to work with and very accomodating. We also enjoying looking at their personal art collection hung on the walls.
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.
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!
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!
