“Loved Yosemite, house average”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

No room in kitchen to store food. Shared living space was drab and needed updating. Beds were good and bathrooms good. Not enough towels or sheets. Needed to go to office to get towels and sheets and toilet paper and garbage bags. Office was stingy with supplies so we had to stop there often to replentish. This is an expensive property but felt like an average one.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you were not happy with the supplies. We do give you enough supplies for the amount of people you tell us will be in your party when you book the reservation. If you had more than that, you could have told us (we do not charge for extra people) and we would have been more than happy to give you what you needed.

Nice rear deck over looking the river. Kitchen is small but worked ok. Plenty of room for everyone. We had some problems with mice but the property management company were there everyday until it was resolved and they were truly nice and friendly.

“So relaxing and inviting!”
Reviewed 19 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Really enjoyed staying in this wonderful, spacious, relaxing cabin! The cabin feels very private and the stream running in the back just added to the ambiance of being in the mountains! The new master bathroom is spacious and yet intimate - and the new room (I'll call it a "Writer's Loft") is so light, airy and inviting that you can't help but be inspired and refreshed. This is one cabin that feels welcoming from the moment you drive up to it - and you're only 35 minutes from the Yosemite Valley floor. Highly recommended!

“This lodge had everything we could have wanted or needed in a vacation rental.”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

If you are vacationing with a large group of family and/or friends, this cabin is ideal. The deck is huge, and the hot tub was a big hit. You can hear and see Chilnualna Creek as it tumbles over the rocks. It has a perfect mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, comfortable and private sleeping areas, and large well appointed bathrooms and kitchen area. We didn't use our vehicles the whole time we were there. It is an easy walk to The Chilnualna Falls Trailhead and a short hike to the lower falls - magnificent even in a drought year.

We had a mixed group of teens and preteens with their parents and grandparents. Something for everyone!

Liked best: Wawona is an amazing place. You have to experience it first hand to really appreciate its beauty and serenity, especially in the off season.
Liked least: I am fussy about my bed pillow and would bring my own next time - just a matter of personal preference.
