We stayed in the Miner's cabin. There are four of us, my husband and 17 year old twins. My husband and son slept in the bedroom, and my daughter and I slept on the futon in the living room. We appreciated finding this cabin as we made late reservations, and were pleased to find anything so close to the entrance of Yosemite. The queen bed is really a futon, and not very comfortable. The futon in the living room is double sized, so smaller than the one in the bedroom. It seemed ok for my daughter and I, although it took us awhile to figure out how to set it up. The cushion behind the futon, that we needed to use once we put the bed together, was very dusty. The pillows were very flat. The cleanliness of the cabin was marginal. It was just ok. It's a cabin after all so we didn't expect perfection. I agree with prior reviewers that the shower head is very low. The front porch was very nice and we did enjoy sitting out there. The Miners cabin sits back away from the other cabins and RV sites, and has some nice trees around it. It worked just fine for our needs. It is a bit of drive once you get into Yosemite, to the Valley, but if you don't want to or are unable to stay in the park, there isn't much else this close to the entrance. One note - we ate at the Buck Meadows restaurant and it was a HORRIBLE experience. Don't waste your time or money there. The service was awful, but then, that's a different review!
