A quaint cabin tucked into the pines, beside Lewis creek, and a stroll away from a historic mill pond. Close to Yosemite's South Gate, Nelder Grove, Bass Lake, and Oakhurst. 1 BR + bonus bed in common area, 1 bathroom. A true mountain getaway!

The space

This small cabin in the pines is the mountain getaway for a retired race-car driver/former Yosemite ranger and his wife. The building is about 100 years old and began as part of the Sugar Pine Lumber Mill as the community dance hall (feel free to bust out with a little boogie while you're there) then was later renovated into a residential cabin. This cabin has been in the family for 3 generations and counting so it's a special place for all of us to visit.

There is a common living space that includes a dining table that seats 4 (or 5 if you like to be super cozy), a wood stove, a full kitchen with utensils, a couch, a small flatscreen tv, wifi, AND an additional full bed in a little nook. There is also a full bathroom with a shower/bath tub and two vanities. The cabin has a cozy bedroom with a queen bed. There's a small patio with a barbecue and outdoor chairs, all beside an open space where you can play games (bring your own!) like cornhole, etc. The cabin is small-(approx. 620 sq ft) who needs a large living space when nature is outside?!--but open, clean, and well loved.

The cabin is in close proximity to both nature and restaurants:
8 miles from Yosemite's South Gate
20 miles to Yosemite’s historic village of Wawona (stagecoach rides, golf, dining, pioneer history center, horseback rides, etc.)
3 miles to the Sugar Pine Railroad
10 miles to the Giant Sequoias at the Mariposa Grove
11 miles to Bass Lake (boating, swimming, fishing)
9 miles to Oakhurst (many restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries, etc.)
5 miles to Nelder Grove

At 4500 elevation, our evenings are a cool reprieve from summer heat, and filled with the soothing sound of the creek, frogs, and crickets (i.e., bring a sweatshirt or light jacket).

*Act now and we'll throw in the earth-tastic scents of a pine forest! AND, if you're really lucky, on cool mornings, you might catch a whiff of the cozy fragrance of neighborhood fireplaces and fried bacon. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bacon).

The cabin is perfect for a couple or even two. Kitchen has everything and the wifi and digital tv let us enjoy late nights with a glass of wine or beer. The location is great. 15 minutes from Yosemite south gate and 5 minutes from a part of Lewis Creek trail. Oakville is 10 minutes away where you can stock up on food. Highly suggest.

The cabin was very clean and comfortable and well stocked, and had all the important things we needed for the kitchen and bathroom. Carl was a very friendly host and went out of the way to describe the local attractions when we arrived. Thanks Carl!

Carl's place is a small historical but well maintained cabin in the woods. We appreciated the nicely stocked kitchen and the grill on the patio, as well as the excellent location, just 20 minutes to Oakhurst for groceries/staples and an hour to Yosemite valley. Recommended.

We had a great time staying at Carl's! He was very fast to respond to any of our messages and was extremely accommodating. The cabin is very cozy and only 15 or so minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance. We had a great time cooking dinner and playing games after our long days of hiking - thanks Carl!

Carl's place was great! Central location from Oakhurst to Yosrmite National Park. If you are expecting a 5 star location this place is not for you. It is a rustic comfortable gem of a place. It is clean and everything works top notch, including the little heater in the restroom, which is a nice touch. Carl's communication is exemplary. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much, you can't go wrong with Carl's place for a true Yosemite cabin experience. Thanks Carl and Nicole.

Carls cabin is really cute and cozy. There is everything you need, a lot of space and you are surrounded by great nature. It's not far to stores and restaurants in Oakhourst and to the Yosemite Valley and the Glacier Point. We would recommend it and hope to come back soon :)

My varied experiences include: I graduated from Fresno State, was a Helitack crewman (Rescue and Firefighting by helicopter), Ski Patrolman, Horse Patrol Ranger-all in Yosemite National Park, Lineman for the local phone co., Race Car driver, I owned a Pizza parlor in Sun Valley, ID., and presently enjoy having a vacation rental. :)

As a kid, I was raised in California's Bay Area but spent summers with my 3 sisters at our family's home in Sugar Pine. Later I got to watch my daughter grow up in the same spot with her cousins visiting from time to time. I recently married a beautiful (inside and out!) woman whose grandfather sold my grandfather one of the first Harley Davidson motorcycles in the county in decades past.
