We stayed in the Paradise Ridge cabin for 2 nights. Everything about this place is absolutely perfect: the views, the outdoor fireplace, the hammock strung between 2 trees, the attentive and friendly staff and the proximity to Mineral King's hiking trails. Besides the spectacular views through the cabin's huge windows, the cabins here are quite spacious, very comfortable and come equipped with most everything you'll need to cook if you'd prefer to not eat at the restaurant (excluding electrical appliances: the fridge is propane-powered).
There are far fewer people on this side of the park, so outdoor adventures are a bit more rustic--if you must see the Sherman tree or go up Moro Rock along with 20,000 other tourists, it'll take some time to get there, but in the end it's not that long of a drive. At Mineral King, we went up to Eagle Lake, which is one of the top stretches of trail I've ever seen: rewarding views from the very first step.
Go to this place, you'll not regret it.
