There appear to be few choices regarding staying in Yoemite ie limited accomodation within the valley -which apparently gets booked up early, or to stay outside of the park and travel in. So it was great to learn through Trip Advisor about rented accomodation within the park. We stayed in the duplex 'Suite Sunshine' which is located in West Yosemite...

The area is so peaceful it's a pleasure to return to after a day of sightseeing and hiking. The cabin is stocked with everything you could possibly need, just bring your...

We are sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience and in all fairness you are not telling the whole story. When you called that evening we offered to call a plumber who would come out to unclog the drain and you refused. We asked when the earliest was that we could get in the next day and...

My husband and I needed to spend a few days in the town of Mariposa and decided that it would give us an opportunity to spend some time exploring the town while attending a weekend event. We decided to rent "Doe's Cottage" and not commute back to our home over an hour away (on mountain roads). The accommodation is a...

Clouds Rest Cabin was wonderful and Foresta was the perfect base. Clouds Rest Cabin lived up to all the lovely photos and reviews. It's well-maintained and very thoughtfully appointed. The kitchen was great and equipped with everything you'd need to cook for a tribe. For just two of us it was superb. From Foresta, the scenic drive to Yosemite Valley...

We stayed at Chris and Doe's El Cap View cabin the weekend of Thanksgiving 2009. The location is perfect inside the park in Foresta. The location is remote and quiet, but ten minutes from Yosemite Valley. It was a perfect location for daily activities in the valley and had all the amenities for nice dinners back at the house.
