Cabin was comfortable with everything needed to cook big meals. Price was doable for a short getaway weekend with the kids. Cute Cabin, I bet it's wonderful in the winter.

We stayed in Steve's cabin for just a short 2 nights, but our stay could not have been any better. It was easy to get into the cabin when we arrived, and everything was ready and waiting for us when we got there. I can fully verify that the kitchen is very well equipped and functional, because one of my favorite parts of our stay was cooking for my friends. We all had a great time, and I definitely would recommend the Papa Bear Cabin for anyone looking to have a comfortable and relaxing stay in Yosemite.

The cabin was located just inside the park, very close to the gates. It was about a 30-min drive to the valley (when leaving the cabin early in the morning). The cabin had all the basic necessities for making meals or grilling. It was so nice that everyone in our family of five had their own beds. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was clean, but maybe a bit rustic (which is what we expected). Wifi worked well. There is a small convenient store a few houses down for basic things. The prices were super high, so if you need a lot of groceries, stop in Oakhurst on the way into the park, and fill up your gas tank too. No AC, but it cools off quickly in the evening. On the last morning there, a deer walked right up to us on the porch. Chilnualna Falls is a short walk away, which made for a great first thing to see upon our arrival since we didn't have time to get down to the valley before dark.

The cabin is great, with a big patio and a nice fireplace. The location is perfect with a market close by and a short drive to Yosemite valley.

Papa Bear Cabin rocks! A home away from home for a family of 10. Everything was spotless and the kitchen was fully equipped for a New Years Eve feast. Our family truly enjoyed the stay.

About Steve

The Birdhouse property has been in our family since the 1920's, in the 80's my father and I decided it was time to build a home (we were both contractors). It took some time but we finally finished with our custom family cabin. It has brought joy to our family for 2 generations and now we wish for others to enjoy it. We love Yosemite and all it has to offer including hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing and exploring new parts of the park. We are a close family that love to travel together and we know our cabin will bring more families closer to one another. Enjoy!
