Details

Surrounded by tall pines and just minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance in the residential community of Fish Camp, this traditional and unique mountain cabin can be your home away from home while exploring the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park. The Big Pine cabin is the larger of two cabins at the Yosemite Forest Lodge.

To get here it's just a short drive off of Highway 41, through the forest along a narrow road that was once a railroad right-of-way. When you arrive you'll find your home situated in a gently-sloped clearing surrounded by a majestic grove of gigantic pines. Outside your home there is an open yard area, extensive decks and a covered front porch so you can enjoy the forest environment comfortably in any weather.

The elevation here is just over 5000 feet; it is nearly always cool and shady in the summer, with comfortable daytime highs that average in the 70's (~20 degrees Celsius) and cool evenings with average lows in the low 50's (~10 degrees Celsius). There is very little or no rain during the summer months. The low humidity means your towels and swimsuits will air-dry quickly.

Our prime location puts you away from the crowds, yet close to everything Yosemite has to offer. The southern entrance to Yosemite is less than two miles up the road. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to call home. There is so much do to here that you could easily fill your day with excitement without ever entering the park itself!

For more information you can also visit our website; see the "Visit our website!" link on this page. You'll find more helpful information, more pictures, and full details on our rates and policies. Our availability calendar is also there for your vacation planning convenience.

It's best to contact us by email but you can also call and leave a message if you prefer. When checking our calendar remember that we normally need a full calendar day between groups in order to prepare the house.
