Guest access

The guests will have access to the entire house.

Interaction with guests

We try to meet guests on the day of arrival to show you around the house and property. If we are unable to meet you we will leave the door unlocked with a key in the house. We also have the August Lock system, which will allow you to enter the house with an electronic key as long as you have a smartphone.

Other things to note

The nightly rate includes the hotel taxes. Prices vary according to the season, holidays and time of week.

We would absolutely love for you to bring along your furry friends! However, we charge an extra $25 for the first pet, then $15 per additional pet. This charge is due to additional cleanup that may be required (pet hair removal on furniture/blankets, carpet stains, etc.).

Cute quiet cabin away from noise and commotion. It was perfect for my family. Also not too far from the town if you need to get groceries or anything like that. Far from Yosemite but I think most places are. Highly recommend staying here.

Great stay, excellent value; so much firewood. One note, they swapped out the couch that is shown in the photos for one that is not as inviting.

My parents were visiting from NY, and we used the space as a base for an early trip to Yosemite. Location was perfect, tranquil and outside of town. Loved the fireplace, and porch the most! My parents won't stop talking about how it's been the highlight of their trip. Perfect for the person looking for a well-cared for and gorgeous (not to mention COZY) cabin! Would absolutely recommend!

Quiet fantastic cabin in the woods. My partner and I had a great stay and hosts are ultra fast to respond to needs (even dropping off a dryer for us at short notice) Would recommend and stay again in future

Cannot recommend this highly enough! Great place to stay for a few days exploring Yosemite, and Tchukon and Carolyn were brilliant.

Awesome place to stay and bond with nature. Clean and comfortable . Clear and precise notes and instructions made the stay pleasant . Stayed during a 101 degree heat wave and were cool and comfortable in the cabin. You are wonderful hosts.

Tchukon & Carolyn User ProfileTchukon & Carolyn is a superhost.

Originally from upstate New York, I moved to San Francisco in my 20's and lived there for 18 years. I had quite an exciting life in the city but in my 40's realized I needed a change from big-city living, which brought me to the beautiful mountains of Mariposa. I was trained as a french chef and love to talk about anything food related. Some of my other interests include photography, horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking, off-roading and most importantly...spending time with my family :)
Little bit about Carolyn
Asides for hosting interesting visitors from around the world. I am also part time nurse practitioner and full time mom (which I love more then anything). I have a fitness and diet addiction and when I have the time I enjoy spending it hiking in Yosemite :)
