Guest Reviews

“Fabulously comfortable cabin" by Julia Kuck 10/29/2018
“Fabulously comfortable cabin with many separate spaces for larger groups and children." We were all adults and we had a wonderful time. The morning sunrises were spectacular and the blue jays amusing. The proximity to the park was excellent with quick rides down to the valley floor and up to the Mariposa grove. We could not have asked for a lovelier space and enjoyed our brief stay. Enjoy this cabin and the Park-both treasures.
I stayed here with 3 other friends for 2 nights. by Samuel Wall 10/21/2018
“I stayed here with 3 other friends for 2 nights. The place is perfectly positioned within driving distance of some of the best sights in Yosemite. There is a really nice view in to the woods and nearby homes. The amenities are excellent, and we especially enjoyed the air hockey table! Would recommend this place to any group of 4 or more people wanting to enjoy Yosemite. Thanks, Holly.”
This was an awesome place to stay for our Yosemite weekend. by Angie Humphrey 06/05/2018
“This was an awesome place to stay for our Yosemite weekend. Everything was comfortable, family-friendly, and simply prefect. The hot tub was awesome after a day of hiking, and our little kids loved all of the Bears and the trundle bed. We grilled out on our last night. We watch the sunset. All of the iconic sights and hiking trails are within a 10 to 20 minute drive. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.”
Hi Holly. by Eva Martinez 03/26/2018
Hi Holly. I just wanted to let you thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cabin ❤️ my family and I had the most amazing time. Probably our best family trip ever!!! Thank you again for making the cabin so cozy and child friendly. My 12, 7 and 5 year old had a blast. I already miss it, and can't wait to come back someday.
The listing description is very accurate and the location of the cabin is beautiful. by Diana Eddy 01/10/2017
“The listing description is very accurate and the location of the cabin is beautiful. The place is quite comfortable with gorgeous views. I loved the space with a spa, workout area, play area and many other details carefully put into the cabin. I especially loved how child friendly the place is!”
Although I didn't meet Holly in person, she was very responsive and easy to communicate with. by Robbie Atkinson 10/21/2016
“Although I didn't meet Holly in person, she was very responsive and easy to communicate with. The cabin was very nice, clean and is as advertised. Great alternative to tent camping for those that want a hot shower and a nice dinner after playing in Yosemite during the day. Modern kitchen with all the amenities for cooking meals connecting to a living area and dining table. There are two full bedrooms with a queen size bed in each, another bedroom with a daybed, and a loft area with a fold out couch/sleeper bed. 1 full bath near the bedroom. Additionally, there is 'Cub's Den' that is accessible down a flight of stairs that has additional lounging area with full bath. There is also a hot tub downstairs. Nice deck space overlooking private back yard with a hammock and horseshoes. Very tranquil and scenic. 2 parking spots in front. Most of our time was spent in the main house and on the deck. We had 7 adults stay with no issue. About a 30 minute drive to the park.”
Yosemite is beautiful. by Richard Wall 07/27/2016
Yosemite is beautiful. The cub cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Well prepared, some great touches with DVDs for the kids and decent internet connection for the evenings. The days were full and all in the outdoors.
Perfect getaway close to everything! by Jon Currey 06/15/2016
This cabin was perfect for a trip to Yosemite with my wife and her family. It was about a 20-25 min drive from the valley floor which was great. After being on the valley floor with all of the chaos it was nice to get away from it all. The drive to the valley floor was also gorgeous. The cabin itself was perfect. Exactly how described and pictured. It is in a residential neighborhood so there are other houses around. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was well equipped. The main room has beautiful floor to ceiling windows that face the sunset. And the loft is a great space to hang out and play games. The hot tub was a perfect way to end our day of hiking. The owners live close by and were available for any questions we had regarding the property. All and all I would highly recommend this cabin for any trip to Yosemite. Especially if you do not want to be in the chaos and crowds of the valley floor.
Everything you could want, and more! by Christi Ferguson 03/07/2014
Everything you could want, and more!

We had the most amazing time at this cabin. It has every amenity you could possibly want. It slept our group of 6 comfortably and could definitely accommodate more. The cub's den was my favorite aspect. We used the spa and BBQ and both worked perfectly. Plenty of towels, linens, kitchen items, etc... The location is far from town, but a good central location from the South gate and Yosemite valley. I would return to cub's cabin in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to a friend!
Happy Family with Kids! by Brian Shaw 03/03/2014
Happy Family with Kids!

Exactly what we wanted! When we showed up there was a warm fire in the stove and the kitchen had all the necessities that you don't want to pack from home and hate buying at the store. Coffee, ziplocks, oil, etc. The place was clean...for some reason I noticed the shower curtain....Spotless! My kids went crazy over the cubs den downstairs. Also, the caretakers were quick to respond to anything needed. It took us 15 minutes to get to the Valley. Would love to go there again and again and again. There are stairs that you have to walk down from the car to the house. In the house there is a loft upstairs and the cubs den is outside and downstairs. Most of the living (3 bedrooms and one bath) is on the main floor and has beautiful views.
Cub's Cabin is amazing! by Denise Dzunczyk 08/07/2013
Cub's Cabin is amazing!
I booked Cub's Cabin after conducting a lot of online research and asking friends who traveled to Yosemite, and I couldn't have asked for a better stay. Cub's Cabin had everything I needed, and Holly (the owner) was very kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend Cub's Cabin to anyone who wants to enjoy beautiful Yosemite.
Holly: by Dan Bernstein 05/19/2013

Our stay in Cub's Cabin was spectacular. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place to come home to after a long day's hiking, and getting away from the crowds on the valley floor was definitely worth the short drive. Everything about the cabin was as advertised, except for the view out the back porch at sunset, which pictures cannot do justice to!

We explored around Yosemite West a bit and found the cabin that we used to stay at twenty years ago, just down the road on Yosemite Parkway. It brought back many great memories of when our kids were younger.

When exploring upstairs in the "loft" I noticed a beautiful old four track Teac tape deck. This is a rare site in today's digital world, and I did not want to touch it, but it did recall many years ago when a friend of mine had a recording studio in Boston and had several of these decks as a routine part of his equipment (I wound up with just a regular two track Teac, which sits in my home office to this day).

We will contact you for sure when we return to Yosemite and perhaps next time will have our adult kids with us.

Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

I had never been to Yosemite, and I couldn't have asked for a better first visit. by Debbie Leiman 05/02/2013
I had never been to Yosemite, and I couldn't have asked for a better first visit. Here are the top 5 reasons to stay at Cub's Cabin: 1) Great Location close to everything 2) Beautiful deck - perfect for viewing the gorgeous night sky 3) Stocked with everything a traveler needs to enjoy their stay 4) Clean and bright with lots of natural light filtering through 5) The best caretaker - Holly was courteous, helpful and one of the best people I've ever met. Thank you for the wonderful memories of Yosemite! Debbie Review
Honeymoon in Yosemite by Diane Deveraux 11/24/2012
"Honeymoon in Yosemite"
My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway for our 10th anniversary and every year we call it a "honeymoon." We do love the Sierras and have spent a lot of time hiking these beautiful mountains. We came across Holly's 'Cub's Cabin" and liked the way it looked private and was in the forest. When we arrived we were quite surprised that it was much more than the photos show. The wood floors gleamed, the kitchen was much bigger than ours at home, and it was downright cozy in a perfectly gorgeous forest setting. We loved the deep jacuzzi bath and took wonderful bubble baths each day. I caught up on my reading in the living room while being able to overlook the beautiful forest setting with the cathedral ceiling. My husband enjoyed the large tv and found many movies to watch. We drove to the valley most days to sightsee and were in awe of the falls and wildlife. Even though it was cold we took some great walks - the air was crisp and clean. I love to cook and found the kitchen very well equipped, even with some wonderful herbs and spices. The beds had a luxurious feel and we started to feel the stress of the city life and our work melt away. I love this house and would come back in a second! It is spotlessly clean, would be great for couples or families, and is in a beautiful location within Yosemite Park. It is a quick trip to the valley if you need restaurants or other services or simply to sightsee.
Hi Holly, by Kay Madsen 10/30/2012
Hi Holly,

we got back to Los Angeles after spending a couple of beautiful days in Yosemite and your cozy cabin. The last night we lay in your hot tub under the star filled sky thinking of all the wonderful things we saw and experienced.

All the best,

Clean and functional cabin! by Yukiko Nara 09/01/2012
Clean and functional cabin!

The cabin was very clean and functional for the group of 9. It was very close to all of the main attractions at Yosemite. We enjoyed coming back from long hikes knowing we had a nice place to have dinner in.
All the comforts of home, in fabulous setting by Vivian Leber 08/31/2012
"All the comforts of home, in fabulous setting"
Our family of 4 adults stayed here for 3 nights and were more than satisfied. It sounds small with name "Cub's Cabin" but it is spacious enough for 6 or 7 people. A dream house for your kids too. Spotlessly clean and fresh, well decorated, nice kitchen, deck with barbecue. The rec room has fitness equipment, air hockey table, sofas, bathroom and nearby outdoor hot tub. Nice surprises: fluffy large bathsheets, games, family dvd movies, wall-sized window to view sunrise and sunset. Located in a neighborhood of homes (but not close enough to intrude)and very convenient to the heart of Yosemite - well inside the Park gates. The owner and caretaker (down road) were responsive to small requests. Don't forget to buy all groceries before getting to the Park. The Park stores have limited selection.
Beautiful sunset!! by Jessica Lee 08/24/2012
"Beautiful sunset!!"
This place is very clean and well decorated. My kids enjoyed the air hockey table in game room. I watched beautiful sunset at the porch everyday. The kitchen was new and well stocked. There is only one bathroom in living area. I think it would be better to have one more bathroom instead of laundry room. There is no wifi in this cabin but we enjoyed very much.
We stayed 2 nights in august and the place was great. by Natalie Cherbaka 12/04/2011
We stayed 2 nights in august and the place was great. Not too hot. It is nicely appointed with decor and the kitchen has everything we needed, including a nice selection of spices. Our kids, ages 3,6,7,10, thought it was the greatest place on earth, particularly the cub's den basement area and the outdoor space. We ate every meal on the beautiful porch. The location is fantastic relative to what we wanted to see, the valley, glacier point, and mariposa grove. The place was clean with plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, etc and the communication with owner was prompt, accurate, and professional. Thanks!

Wow what a pleasant surprise - this place is very nice! by Zeph Freeman 08/01/2011
Wow what a pleasant surprise - this place is very nice!

All I can say is Wow... We wish we had planned more time in Yosemite. Cub's Cabin is a wonderful place to stay. It is not far from any of the main sight seeing areas. It is 15-25 minutes from the Lower Valley, Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove. Great location in a residential area! Holly is a great communicator. She responds very quickly to email and phone calls. Outstanding service. The place was very clean and modern. The only reason I did not give a perfect 5 is because it does not have a/C. However there are many fans in the place and we kept cool. It actually was a bit cold each evening, therefore no need for fans at night. We were hardly there during the day when it was hot. There were 6 of us and we had more than enough room to sleep comfortably. It easily sleeps 6-10 people. I wish we had more time to play horse shoes, sleep in the hammock or enjoy the hot tub. They are all great...
