Description from owner


The Log House Retreat near Yosemite Park is enchanting with a century old history based on its original log Great Room. While fully maintaining the charm of its history, the Log House Retreat has been brought into current times with all the modern conveniences.

Log House Retreat is the new sister property of 3 Bedroom Cottage Retreat - just several hundred feet away - winner of over 50 Five Star Reviews and 2 Bedroom Valerian Retreat - winner of over 100 Five Star Reviews. Rent one alone or some combination of these cabins located near each other for a perfect family reunion or get together of friends.

In the cabin you’ll find all the amenities you will need in this newly renovated 2 bedroom cozy cabin with 2 baths. When you walk into the Log House, you won't find the musty stuffiness, typical of many vacation rentals. It is fresh and clean with a pleasing blend of new vintage and contemporary furnishings. The modern kitchen has all new solid stone surface counters and is decorated to look and feel like an old style farm house. The cabin decor is professionally done to feel comfy with great function. We have installed 3 flat screen TV's (Smart/Roku)for your enjoyment after you return from the park. Complimentary Netflix movies are provided in the living room. There is also free Wi-Fi for Internet or a 'working' holiday. The cabin can sleep 4 comfortably and A Pack & Play Crib/Playpen is provided.

The outdoor landscape is large and level, making it a great place for kids to play, ride bikes and explore nearby. There are hiking trails on the 40 acres property for any days you want to stay and relax at home. There is a full horseshoe pit and hammock. If you wish to bring a pet, please make a notation in your booking request. At night, you'll want to settle around the fire pit, make smores and tell stories. Or just walk outdoors and be awe struck by the night sky filled with stars of the Milky Way - seemingly close enough to touch.

The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open, allowing you to enjoy watching your favorite movies or shows and to stay warm with the original stone hearth fireplace in those cooler months. We also have central A/C & heat for your comfort any time of the year and an interior laundry area. Natural materials were used to accent the home’s history lending to its warmth and the charm of times gone by. Look and you’ll see features in the home that are nearly 100 years old.

This location is a great place to retreat to after a busy day with the crowds of summer in Yosemite. The cabin is also a great hideaway in the fall, winter and spring. As the temperature drops, the property, with its special setting, may welcome you with a beautiful snowscape.

Come and visit! You won’t want to leave.

The Log House Retreat is a great starting location for day trips to many points of interest including Yosemite:

To Yosemite west entrance –

Go north on route 49 to reach the arch rock highway 140 entrance that takes you through the historic town of Mariposa and along the valley floor of the scenic Merced River canyon. It is a beautiful drive which will take you about 3/4 to 1 hour to reach the park. There are many places along the road to stop and enjoy the wild and scenic river. This area is known for spectacular wild flower viewing.

To Yosemite south entrance –

Go south on route 49 to reach Oakhurst - a larger town with many services, dining and shopping options. In Oakhurst, you will turn left onto highway 41 east to wind your way up the mountain into Yosemite Park through the quaint little villages of Fish Camp and Wawona – both places of many interests. Near Wawona is the must see Mariposa Grove of giant redwoods. As you drive further toward Yosemite just after the tunnel, be sure to pull off to see the spectacular view of the Yosemite valley from above.
