Yosemite National Park, California
Glamping at its finest! Located INSIDE Yosemite National Park and only 12 minutes from the west end of Yosemite Valley! No waiting in lines to get inside the park.
Quiet adult retreat that is perfect for two! No children please. Clouds Rest Cabin has a ridge top location, with rare views of El Capitan, Half Dome and the surrounding mountains. Custom built two story, 1 bedroom cabin with limited wi-fi capability. Beautiful wood interior. Two person soaking tub is located in the upstairs bathroom.
The cabin's location, in the historic community of Foresta, makes it centrally located in Yosemite National Park, for flyfishing the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers, day hiking to Sequioa groves, backcountry lakes and streams or mountain biking out the front door to miles of accessible USFS roads. It's location is only 8 miles from Yosemite...

About the neighborhood
Foresta is centrally located inside Yosemite National Park, between Yosemite Valley and Crane Flat. Foresta has the closest private home rentals to Yosemite Valley. Quiet rural location, with lovely Crane Creek flowing gently through the community. Nearby historic Meyer ranch house, barns and pioneer cemetery. Native American prehistoric grinding rocks scattered through out the area. Spectacular Foresta Falls is an easy 2 mile R/T walk from the cabin.

How to get there
Closest airport is in Fresno, CA. Train and bus service from Merced CA. Use my maps to navigate. GPS does not work very well in the mountains. It may direct you down abandoned dirt roads.
