About the property

Sleeps 6, 2 Baths, Meadow/Mountain Views, Modern Kitchen, Large Deck, Fireplace

Our cabin is in Wawona, a small village located inside Yosemite National Park. The cabin comfortably sleeps six in two bedrooms and a separate closed-off alcove area. There is a modern kitchen, dining area, and a family room that faces a large stone fire place. One bedroom has a king-size bed; the other bedroom has a queen-size bed. The alcove area has a trundle bed with two twin-size beds.

The modern kitchen has a gas cook top and oven, large refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and abundant cooking and eating utensils.

The family room has an L-shaped sofa and rocking chair, free Dish TV and Wi-Fi, ceiling fan, and a large fire place (great during winter). Ample firewood is provided at no charge. The dining room table sits six comfortably and the kitchen bar seats an additional two guests.

There are two bathrooms (shower in one, tub and shower in the other). A washer and dryer are also in the cabin and are provided at no extra cost.

A large deck surrounds the cabin and provides unobstructed views of Wawona Dome and an adjacent meadow where deer and other wildlife often gather. The deck is furnished with tables and chairs for more than ten people and a propane barbecue.

The cabin has forced-air heating to keep you warm during winter nights and a ceiling fan to help cool you during the summer.

Parking for five cars in a circular driveway provides easy all-year access off of the paved road.

The cabin is within 45 minutes driving time of Yosemite Valley where you can walk in the steps of John Muir as you view Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Half Dome, Cathedral Spires, El Capitan, and Mirror Lake. You can also hike to Vernal Falls, Nevada Falls, and Half Dome through Happy Isles and along the Mist Trail.

The cabin is also within 50 minutes of Badger Pass Ski Area and Glacier Point. In the winter, Badger Pass offers downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. At Glacier Point, you will have a panoramic view of Yosemite Valley, the park's many water falls, and Half Dome. It is also a trail head for the 8-mile spectacular Panorama Trail to the Valley floor along which you will view Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls up close (but not too close).

The cabin is also a short drive to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Redwood Trees. Take the tram or hike and enjoy the experience; it is worth it.

The village of Wawona is minutes away from the cabin with a country store, post office, gas station, stables, the historic Wawona Hotel, the Yosemite Pioneer History Center, and the beautiful Wawona Golf Course.

On Saturday evenings, check to see if there is a barn dance at the Pioneer Yosemite History Center or an outdoor barbeque at the Wawona Hotel. The whole family will enjoy it.

From the cabin you are also minutes away from swimming or fishing in the Merced River. A secret spot to enjoy the river is near the flat rock, across the road and down the hill from the Wawona School in the village. You can also take a leisurely hike to the swinging bridge over the south fork of the Merced River or a more challenging hike to the top of Chilnualna Falls.

There is even a public library just down the street from the cabin if you want a quiet spot to relax, read, and research your next excursion.

About Diane Martin

Two families have owned and enjoyed this cabin for over 20 years. It has been a cherished spot for many family vacations, retreats, and reunions.

The owners have continued to update the cabin with new tile and carpeting, modern appliances, comfortable beds and furniture, and a unique deck that surrounds the cabin and offers wonderful views. The owners treat this cabin like their home because it is, and they want their guests to experience the same joy, wonder, and happiness that Yosemite has provided their families throughout the years.

Diane Martin purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Diane Martin chose Yosemite National Park

The cabin is actually inside Yosemite National Park, not in an adjoining town or area. It is located next to an open meadow and has a great view of Wawona Dome, which turns golden as the sun sets. The accommodations are modern, convenient, and comfortable. This cabin will enable our guests to enjoy fully a true Yosemite experience in a private home without worrying about trying to secure campground or hotel reservations.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is warm and comfortable. After a day of hiking or golfing in the spring, summer, or fall, you can spend a lovely evening on the large deck, enjoying a barbecue dinner, the incomparable view of the alpenglow that basks Wawona Dome, and the deer that stroll across the adjacent meadow. After a day of skiing or snowshoeing in the winter, you can prepare your favorite drink and snacks as you relax or read in front of a roaring fire.

And, in any season, you can watch the free satellite TV or hop on the internet. But don't spend too much time doing this; after all, you are in Yosemite!

Loved the property and enjoyed our stay

We were a group of 6 and stayed here for 2 nights. The property is exactly as described and is located in a quiet area of this community. All the provided amenities were great and I recommend this property for short or long stays.

Cozy, clean cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is clean, cozy, comfortable, and quiet. It's in a secluded part of the park, a bit far from the Valley floor, but peaceful. We were a party of two, but could comfortably accommodate 5.

Clean, conveniently located house in Yosemite Park. Great deal!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our family of 6 to stay. Our 4 kids (15, 12, 10, 4) all had a place to sleep and plenty of room outside to roam. The deck is terrific and the house was impeccably clean. The view from the deck is great and the price was unbeatable. I highly recommend it. Head to the valley early in the morning and you'll have plenty of time to explore there and still head back to Wawona for a swim in the river. The kids would happily have played in the river all day. Hike (or drive) to the Wawona swinging bridge - you won't regret it!

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located in a nice wooded area in wawona, secluded yet accessible to general store, gas station etc.

The cabin was clean and amenities were really good .... well stocked with everything one might need. All kitchen utensils, games, handsoaps / laundry detergents ...

The view from the deck was scenic ... having breakfast/coffee and watching the sun shine up wawona dome was our thing in the mornings. The deck itself was very spacious with many chairs ... kids could watch some birds, squirrels and even couple deer.

It also has a grill.... which we used for a night.

suggested improvements:

property manager available only till 6PM is not useful at all as no guest will be back until its late evening. Even if it's just phone support till 9/10PM for any emergency help is appreciated.
