“Small and cozy”
Reviewed December 1, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is a wonderful cabin for two people. The stone fireplace is the centerpiece. There is plenty of comfortable seating and reading light, but you can also dim the lights and just enjoy the warmth and serenity of the fire. Plenty of firewood outside the cabin, and they give you free fire starters for each night of your stay.

The kitchen is incredibly small - you basically have to step outside the kitchen to open the lower cupboards. The gas stove is also tiny, and we had one incident where one of us brushed against the control and turned a burner to "low" without realizing it. The smell of gas alerted us to the problem. However, for our purposes, which included making breakfast and hot drinks, the kitchen worked quite well.

The bed takes up most of the bedroom. If you like your bed to be "made", you will need to be either very thin, in order to fit between the sides of the bed and the wall, or very strong, so you can fling the bedding over the bed from the end. There are plenty of extra pillows an blankets. The mattress is a soft, pillow top.

The bathroom is quite functional. Shower is very strong and there isn't any way that we could find to moderate it. I used all the hot water with a quick shower and hair wash - would advise turning the shower off while you lather up! Plenty of towels and washcloths provided - we didn't use them all.

As it was Thanksgiving and a bit chilly, we didn't use the deck or barbecue, but it looked like it was all very well maintained. The only thing we didn't like was the gas wall heater. When we arrived at the cabin, there was a strong smell of gas. We actually had maintenance turn the heater completely off. They provided us with a portable electric radiator, which, in combination with the fire place, kept the cabin comfortably warm. The maintenance guy did say that this heater was due to be replaced, and given how well th cabin seems to have been maintained, I am sure it will be done soon.

We would come back in a heatbeat. It is so nice to be in Yosemite but away from the crowds. Thanksgiving dinner at the Wawona was wonderful, and we enjoyed sitting by their fireplace listening to the piano player and chatting with other guests and diners there.
