Sunset Inn Yosemite Vacation Cabins
Reviewed 2 August 2017 via mobile

This is quite possibly one of the nicest, unique and satisfying places I've ever stayed in.

A wonderful couple (Lauren and Bill) own this place and it's a sight to behold - immaculately kept (we stayed in the Meadow Lark cabin) in a beautiful location.

Views - spectacular. Peace and quiet - guaranteed. Relaxing - definitely. Value for money - priceless.

You have to persevere with the road into the property (our Satnav didn't cope very well!) but you'll be rewarded. Amazing place, not too far from Yosemite's west gate.

Seek this place out - you will not be disappointed. I'd give it 6/5 if I could!

We loved this place due to how close it is to the Yosemite entrance and how clean and fresh the property is kept. We only stayed one night but wished we would have stayed longer. On arrival we were greeted graciously by the hosts who also live on the property. Their confirmation email had very useful information about the area including grocery shopping, gas, cell phone service etc. The Internet worked well enough. All in all this is a well run property kept immaculately clean and homey. We would stay again!

This is a beautiful, well-equipped cabin for easy driving access to Yosemite National Park. It had everything we needed for a long weekend away with the family! We loved grilling outside near the river and stargazing in the evening. We'd go back in a minute!

Thank you for your lovely review of the Yosemite River Cabin! This beautiful vacation home is a separate property operated by Sunset Inn (it's on our web site), located just 5 miles from the entrance to Yosemite! So glad you enjoyed your stay!

We chose Sunset Inn as we wanted to stay in a Cabin rather than a resort hotel, and Sugar Pine Cabin proved to be a great choice. From the relaxed welcome when we arrived - later than planned - to the local knowledge and advice available from Lauren and Bill, it is an idyllic place to stay. The Cabin had everything we needed: comfortable bed, small but well equipped kitchen, lots of hot water. If you are looking for an away-from-it-all place, this should suit you fine. And still only 15min drive from Yosemite Village - and that drive is a spectacular use of 15mins every time you drive into the Park.

Sugar pine cabin was a lovely, rustic cabin perfect to return to after day hikes and sightseeing. The cabin was comfortable with all the essentials needed to cook a nice meal at the end of the day. There is a charcoal grill, a gas stove and a toaster oven and sufficient pots and pans to cook most anything you would want. We had steaks, lamb, potatoes, broccoli, green beans, rice, eggs and bratwurst while we stayed there. You just need to know enough basic cooking to be able to cook without a microwave. I was happy to see stainless pots and pans, as I am not a fan of Teflon. The kitchen had exactly what we needed. We ate much nicer meals more inexpensively than if we had chosen to eat out every meal (which can be frustrating and difficult to find in a National Park setting).

The trees around the cabin were perfect, and the outbuildings were rustic and in my opinion, added a country charm that made me feel at home. The chickens also made it feel like home for us, as we have chickens ourselves. The eggs were delicious, and I was thrilled to see a pastel green one from one of Lauren's hens.

We hiked Mirror Lake Trail where a couple of spots on the trail had flooded from a very wet spring season. Lauren let us use her boot dryer, which worked perfectly for our boots to hit the Mist Trail early the next day.

One day we drove all the way to Sequoia and Kings Canyon. That's a very long day trip. We left very early and returned late at 10:30. Lauren and Bill had set the porch light on for us. They're very thoughtful and helpful folks.

The experience was as much about the lovely setting and the gracious, kind hosts as with anything else. Our trip was lovely, and Lauren, Bill and Clyde (the dog) were a huge part of that.

We stayed in a cabin for two nights. Despite the weather being less than accommodating the owners, Lauren and Bill, made us very welcome. Cabin was well fitted for self-catering. The bed was very comfortable. Attention to detail was all around. Even the board games supplied came in very useful! Managed to see some of what Yosemite had to offer despite the main park area being closed. Would highly recommend.

Stayed: April 2017

We had the Sugar Pine Cabin and it was like a home away from home. The cabin had a small kitchen so we could cook our own food after a long day of hiking. Perfect. The hosts were so friendly and their chickens provided eggs for breakfast. Perfect. It was comfortable and homey. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful place!
