Overview

About the property

Lupin Cabin - Beautiful one-bedroom cabin just minutes from Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Hilltop Cabins are located within the gates of Yosemite National Park in the tiny community of Foresta. It is hard to believe that such a quiet and peaceful place like this exists just fifteen minutes from the sometimes bustling Yosemite Valley.

NOTE – This listing is for the Lupin Cabin. The listing and availability calendar for the Sage Cabin is also on VRBO/HomeAway under property number 815550. Both cabins are on the same property, have the same floor plan, and are furnished almost identically. We created a separate listing for the Sage Cabin in early February 2016 so reviews for both cabins are on this listing prior to that date.

The cabins are very private. Even though the Sage and Lupin Cabins are located next to each other they are oriented to maintain maximum privacy. Each cabin has 17-foot-tall wood beam ceilings with ceiling fans and lots of windows to take advantage of the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. When you are at the cabins you can see the top of El Capitan, Yosemite's world famous 3000 ft tall granite cliff.

Each cabin has a master bedroom with a comfy king-size bed and down comforter. They also have a full bath, full kitchen, and reading loft. Each cabin also has its own patio with a high quality Weber gas barbecue

When you arrive at your cabin there will be fresh linens on the bed and clean towels in the bathroom. There will be brand-name shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the bathroom. You will only need to bring food, clothes, and personal toiletry items.

Fantastic hiking and running trails with wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife can be accessed right from the cabins.

Each cabin has a TV/DVD player. The TV has no programming, DVD only. There is a small DVD library to pick from or you can bring your own movies.

The kitchen has all the cookware and dinnerware that you will need to prepare and serve meals. The kitchen also has a microwave oven, toaster, blender, coffee grinder, and coffee maker.

The cabins are heated in the winter by propane heaters that look like wood-burning stoves. Both cabins have air conditioning for your summer comfort.

Some cell phones work at the cabins. Verizon is the best. Each cabin has a land-line telephone for use during your stay.

There is satellite internet provided by HughesNet. There is a cap on the amount of bandwidth that is available. PLEASE DO NOT STREAM MOVIES OR WATCH VIDEOS AS IT WILL IMPACT GUESTS THAT ARRIVE AFTER YOU.

As of November 2014 there is no longer a hot tub at the cabins. It was a tough decision but keeping the hot tub clean and in working order finally became too much.

Current Yosemite road and weather conditions can be found by calling Yosemite National Park at 209-372-0200. Current road conditions in the State of California can be found by calling Caltrans at 800-427-7623.

Great cabin style property right in Yosemite!

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us that stayed for two nights at the property and there is plenty of space and comfort for everyone. We loved the grill and outdoor seating area to watch the sunset over the hills. The place is very clean well-kept and nicely styled. Overall it made for a very inviting experience in the heart of Yosemite. You can't beat how close it is to Yosemite Valley and you get to beat all the crowds In the mornings on the way into the park. We'd definitely stay here again when we're in the area! Thanks!

Perfect for a stay in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

This rental has everything going for it. The location inside the park is ideal - it never too us more than 30 minutes to get to any main sites and trailheads, and not having to deal with the park gate every day was a relief. The cabin itself was adorable, well maintained, and had absolutely everything the three of us needed. TV with loads of DVDs, games, well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, etc. And the owner, Steve, was highly responsive. We had one small request the first day, and he took care of it within an hour. We could not be happier, nor could we recommend this rental more highly!

Find your home in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation - the welcome instructions were easy to follow (directions to the cabin, key entry, & internet login), inside it was cozy and comfortable as advertised with living room, kitchen, bedroom, & bathroom fully equipped, the quiet location is inside the park but outside the valley - all as promised. Three hikes in two days (including the close by Foresta Waterfall). Steve was always immediately responsive to our questions. We highly recommend this property.
