we are responding to the COVID situation following specific safety guidelines,

and are approved to operate through state and local authorities

We appreciate your understanding during these unusual times.

We hope to see you soon!

The Yosemite River Cabin is located just 5 miles from the Highway 120 west entrance to Yosemite,

at the Big Oak Flat Gate. In close proximity to all the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park,

but a world apart from busy Yosemite Valley. This beautiful property sits along the banks

of the Tuolumne River, with over 300 feet of river frontage, a large level yard with plenty of parking, and is surrounded by huge, aromatic pines, with plenty of wide open space for star gazing.

This lovely vacation home is ideal for 2 to 6 guests (including children). It features 3 small bedrooms, two each with a queen bed and armoire, and the third bed room has a double bed, a dresser, and a stacking washer/dryer. The bathroom is all tile, complete with a full size tub/shower combo. The beautifully remodeled kitchen is fully equipped and features beautiful granite counters, a farmhouse sink, 4 burner range with oven, full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, and pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc. A propane/gas parlor stove heats the home in the winter, and 2 air conditioners as well as a ceiling fan in each room provide summer cooling.

The comfy living room includes a TV screen with a DVD library (no television reception). 

This cozy comfy home is truly an unforgettable getaway.

The house is terrific and the river is just a stone’s throw out the back door! Nestled in the woods, part of a small community, secluded but not remote, the Yosemite River Cabin offers peaceful splendor.

Pet Policy


Unfortunately we are not able to accept pets. We understand pets are part of the family and love vacations as we all do,

so we are happy to recommend 'Big Creek Boarding' right outside Groveland, about 25 minutes from us. 

If your pooch can find accommodations elsewhere, we would love to have you to stay with us!
