Why Ken and Ronna Sorenson chose Yosemite Area

Ken has been going to Fish Camp for over 50 years since he was 4 years old. His family used to stay at a family friend's cabin, which just so happens to be next door to this cabin!! When the owner/builder of this cabin was ready to sell, they offered the cabin to Ken and his parents before it even went on the market, as they knew it would be taken care of and kept special. We have been coming to this cabin as a family since our kids were just 13 and 8 years old and it holds such special memories. Since Ken's dad passed away in August 2012, we decided to share these memories by renting the cabin to other families so they can enjoy the love that surrounds our cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin feels like you just stepped out of a storybook. It is surrounded by large pine trees, yet it has all the comforts of home.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beginning with the personal parking spot right in front, this lovely cabin met our every need and expectation. It was nicely appointed with great furniture, comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the spacious deck in back with a glass of wine, some cheese and just soaking in the quietness of the forest where the only sounds were those of nature around us. Our day trip into Yosemite Valley and back was quite easy for a day adventure. We will definitely be back.

Yosemite Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we stayed at this house just outside of Yosemite. We checked out the lodges in the park and they were very expensive and when we saw them very touristy and busy. Our place was a peaceful house with a beautiful side deck where we sat out and ate and played games. A nice little basket of goodies greeted us and received good instructions ahead of time regarding groceries.

Spectacular, cozy and clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located outside of the south entrance to Yosemite National Park. The cabin was very cozy and clean. Easy entry access, kitchen stocked with all cooking essentials and a clean BBQ grill to enjoy the outdoors. Bathrooms, bedrooms and loft were very clean. The cabin also had a washer and dryer. It was literally home away from home.

Please note: the GPS does not give correct directions to the cabin, reference the directions when cabin is reserved.

Nice home but bedrooms were not great

  • 3 of 5

The home was neat and had many useful items stashed in its drawers and closets. You can tell the family who owns it has much love for it and has many fond memories there. The upstairs loft, which has a queen bed and two twin beds, had two low beams in the a-frame ceiling that gave both of my children huge bumps and bruises on their heads when getting in and out of the beds. The basement bedroom (with the king bed) and bathroom were very cold about 10 to 20° colder than the upstairs. There was a small space heater but it did not work. We ended up not using the basement for the entire stay. Also, there is a lot of construction going on in the neighboring houses which made for noisy atmosphere and many trucks coming and going during the day.
