We were originally going to stay in the Cedar Lodge, a few reviews on this site mentioned the river houses, so we explored Yosemite Resort Houses site and found a great alternative to the lodge.
They have four houses. Two sleep 12. One house sleeps four, and the other sleeps six. We stayed in the Gatekeepers house (sleeps six). Low season price was $130 per night (cheaper than two rooms in the lodge) It's one bath, one bedroom with a loft. The bedroom has a queen. The loft has two queens, and can be accessed by a loft ladder, or a external door.
It was clean, also has maid service, full kitchen, dinning table, living room, deck, bbq grill, and nice views. Location is three miles from main lodge (you can still use lodge amenities), and about 20 mins from park.
P.S. Two of the houses on a steep hill. Be prepared to lug the suitcases.
