“Perfect getaway close to everything!”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2016

This cabin was perfect for a trip to Yosemite with my wife and her family. It was about a 20-25 min drive from the valley floor which was great. After being on the valley floor with all of the chaos it was nice to get away from it all. The drive to the valley floor was also gorgeous. The cabin itself was perfect. Exactly how described and pictured. It is in a residential neighborhood so there are other houses around. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was well equipped. The main room has beautiful floor to ceiling windows that face the sunset. And the loft is a great space to hang out and play games. The hot tub was a perfect way to end our day of hiking. The owners live close by and were available for any questions we had regarding the property. All and all I would highly recommend this cabin for any trip to Yosemite. Especially if you do not want to be in the chaos and crowds of the valley floor.

Response from the manager So glad you enjoyed "Cub's Cabin" and all it's amenities :) Hope to have you back some day! Holly Long

“20 minutes from Valley Floor”

Reviewed 7 May 2014

This cabin was fantastic. We shared the space with (3) families: (5) adults, (5) kids ages 1, 2, 2, 4, 4. It snowed unexpectedly and we were able to have snowday with sledding outside. Holly called on us several times to let us know if it was safe to drive without chains. We were comfortable and were able to spend an enormous amount of quality time together. Would love to have all our get togethers in such a venue.

“amazing /cozy/ spacious/ fun”

We absolutely loved our stay. Only thing missing werw garbage bags and the garbage cans were driving distance. Also, power went out when we had too much going on.

“Great home base for exploring Yosemite!”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2014

We had a great time at the cabin. The kids loved air hockey, hot tub, horseshoes and movies. The kitchen was very well stocked. Loved that they had spices! Only downside would be the drive into the valley.

“Great Rental”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2013

Excellent home to rent for a family with kids. 20 minutes to Badger Pass and about 40 minutes to the Valley. Well appointed and a problem we had was resolved quickly.

“What a wonderful experience!”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2013

Holly: Our stay in Cub's Cabin was spectacular. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place to come home to after a long day's hiking, and getting away from the crowds on the valley floor was definitely worth the short drive. Everything about the cabin was as advertised, except for the view out the back porch at sunset, which pictures cannot do justice to! We explored around Yosemite West a bit and found the cabin that we used to stay at twenty years ago, just down the road on Yosemite Parkway. It brought back many great memories of when our kids were younger. When exploring upstairs in the "loft" I noticed a beautiful old four track Teac tape deck. This is a rare site in today's digital world, and I did not want to touch it, but it did recall many years ago when a friend of mine had a recording studio in Boston and had several of these decks as a routine part of his equipment (I wound up with just a regular two track Teac, which sits in my home office to this day). We will contact you for sure when we return to Yosemite and perhaps next time will have our adult kids with us. Thanks again for a wonderful experience. Dan

Response from the manager Hi Dan, So happy you enjoyed the Cub's Cabin! Yes, we do get a beautiful view from the deck on the back of the house:) Of all my properties, this one is my favorite. It really does take you away from it all :) That tape deck is really cool, the clarity of the music is fantastic! Look forward to seeing you again in the future! Holly

“Awesome Cabin!!! Awesome Location!!!”

Reviewed 10 May 2013

I had never been to Yosemite, and I couldn't have asked for a better first visit. Here are the top 5 reasons to stay at Cub's Cabin: 1) Great Location close to everything 2) Beautiful deck - perfect for viewing the gorgeous night sky 3) Stocked with everything a traveler needs to enjoy their stay 4) Clean and bright with lots of natural light filtering through 5) The best caretaker - Holly was courteous, helpful and one of the best people I've ever met. Thank you for the wonderful memories of Yosemite! Debbie

“Honeymoon in Yosemite”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2012

My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway for our 10th anniversary and every year we call it a "honeymoon." We do love the Sierras and have spent a lot of time hiking these beautiful mountains. We came across Holly's Cub Den and liked the way it looked private and was in the forest. When we arrived we were quite surprised that it was much more than the photos show. The wood floors gleamed, the kitchen was much bigger than ours at home, and it was downright cozy in a perfectly gorgeous forest setting. We loved the deep jacuzzi bath and took wonderful bubble baths each day. I caught up on my reading in the living room while being able to overlook the beautiful forest setting with the cathedral ceiling. My husband enjoyed the large tv and found many movies to watch. We drove to the valley most days to sightsee and were in awe of the falls and wildlife. Even though it was cold we took some great walks - the air was crisp and clean. I love to cook and found the kitchen very well equipped, even with some wonderful herbs and spices. The beds had a luxurious feel and we started to feel the stress of the city life and our work melt away. I love this house and would come back in a second! It is spotlessly clean, would be great for couples or families, and is in a beautiful location within Yosemite Park. It is a quick trip to the valley if you need restaurants or other services or simply to sightsee.

Response from the manager Thank you so much Diane for your wonderful review! I am so happy you were able to make my home feel like your "home away from home", and for such a special occasion! So glad it was everything you wanted; comfortable, relaxing and stress-free. Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. It's can definitely be chilly, but the fall colors in Yosemite are beautiful :) Look forward to hearing from you again in the future! Happy Anniversary! Holly

“Nice stay!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

Everything was really nice--clean and comfortable for the 4 of us. There were even candies for us. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that you needed to access the basement by going outside on the deck and down the steps.

Response from the manager Hi Janet, I just wanted to thank you for your review! I’m so glad you enjoyed “Cub’s Cabin”. Sorry, about the way the entertainment room was built and that it’s downstairs. I really apologize if I didn’t make that clear to you when you booked the reservation or if my website was unclear. Thanks again for choosing to stay in my home in Yosemite! Take Care, Holly

“Clean and functional cabin!”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2012

The cabin was very clean and functional for the group of 9. It was very close to all of the main attractions at Yosemite. We enjoyed coming back from long hikes knowing we had a nice place to have dinner in.
