Cozy cabin
We throughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving stay at this great cabin. Six adults were all comfortably accommodated in great beds. Kitchen very well stocked. Close to Yosemite for a day trip. Nice local hikes also. Internet ok for emailing but not for working. Perfect place to relax!

Comfortable Rustic Cabin
The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable. Kitchen stocked will all appliances, cookware, etc. for making meals & a large fridge. BBQ and nice deck to watch the quail and deer. It's on the Hwy and across the street from YART bus terminal (easy trip to the valley) & Autocamp activity so there is some noise. We didn't stay in the cabin during the day, so no problem for us. We went up for our son's wedding so nice place to make meals and sleep. *If you are attending a wedding at AutoCamp, this is a perfect place to stay!!! We had to reschedule the dates due to COVID, and owners were very communicative and flexible!

5/5 Excellent

Such a fun family weekend!
This was my families first VRBO experience and we're so glad that we stayed at this property! It was so wonderful, and more than enough space for our family of 5. Only thing to note is if you are taller, make sure you watch your head when walking up the stairs! Perfect location for driving into Yosemite. We hope to be able to stay here in the future!
