We cannot find Yosemite Resort Homes (Cedar) / River House on TripAdvisor, so selected the site that seems appropriate. Booked our travel through their phone service and got the River House. Ideal location for a family of 12 to 15 to stay for a few nights. Close to the river so the kids had a great time. Drive to the... More

We spent three memorable nights here in early November 2015. Our visit coincided with the first snow storm which resulted in the closure of the Tioga Pass and Glacier point roads, thus curtailing our hiking options, but also meant we had plenty of scenic, dusted peaks to photograph and Yosemite’s Valley largely to ourselves. Over the course of the next... More

Our family of 2 grandparents, 2 sons and wives, and 2 grandchildren really enjoyed Alpenglow Chalet, despite picking the weekend when El Nino made his first visit with an incredible tempest in the middle of the night (we were snug and warm, though!) One of us who'd never seen Yosemite was awed by the Valley shrouded in clouds and rain,... More

If you want a cabin not a hotel; for just two people or a small family; and inside the park, then Cloud's rest has GOT to be it. My wife and I loved the setting, being so close to Yosemite valley but off the tourist track- the overwhelming silence when we sat out on the veranda was just lovely. The... More

We stayed there 3 night in July. The location was very good. Not far from the velly but still 20 minutes drive in a curvy road. It is a fully equipped apartment in a two store building. Every thing we needed was there to use. The apartment is very beautiful. Every little thing there gives you the importation of a... More

We came at a perfect time, the lupine was blooming, water was in full flow for georgous waterfalls, and this cabin was perfect! Very cozy, nicely kept and updated with fantastic amenities. This cabin is close to everything, but just far away for privacy. Loved it, when we come back, we will stay here again. Michael Thurman Baton Rouge, LA

We were fortunate to spend 4 nights at El Capitan View as the base for our recent trip, It is ideally located in Foresta which is just outside the valley and will take between 20 to 30 minutes drive to the main visitor area.

We recently stayed at Sage Cabin for 5 nights. It was a great, cute cabin about 25 min from the valley. The drive is very hilly and curvy and you have to go very slow in the dark. Also lots of deer about. We loved the hot tub, especially after climbing Half Dome! Our neighbors were very quiet and we... More
