Well equipped kitchen and bath. Extra linens and space heaters to keep you warm. Very quiet location. Lots of wildlife. Might need all wheel drive on snowy winter days. We would love to stay here again.

This was our 3rd time staying here in Sage cabin...2010, 2013 & a couple of weeks ago. We love it in Foresta as you're close to the valley but away from the crowds. But also its not a bad base if you need to get to the Tuolumne area. In arrival we were pleasantly surprised to see the owners have...

We stayed for 6 nights in Lupin cabin. We have previously visited Yosemite but stayed outside of the park so we really appreciated the location as it was well situated for accessing both the valley and Tuolomme meadows/Tioga road areas. We found the cabin to offer everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable, fridge and oven were huge and...

We need rain in California so we can get back the amazing waterfalls for this beautiful national park. We have gone to this park over 35 times and you will want to bring a bike to go around the valley floor. It is very hot in July and August and it is really nice in the spring. To get the...

I stayed recently at the Lupin Cabin with my two kids in March. While Yosemite is amazingly beautiful, I really appreciated being a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of the valley floor while still being close enough that it was a painless and beautiful drive back in...the cabin, itself, was clean and cozy. It is small but comfortable...

This was my second stay at Hilltop cabins and it was just as I remembered, minus the hot tub. This is really a no frills type of cozy cabin. I was reading through the reviews and people complain about 3 things mostly: 1. Proximity to the cabin next door 2. No Wifi or slow wifi 3. Furnishings 1. Proximity to...

We stayed in Lupin, nearest the 'road' and had a great time. Directions to the cabin were accurate and as we left the tarmac the anticipation of being away from it all increased. Whilst we were unpacking the car a Mule Deer wandered past, which really made my daughter's day! The cabin is well appointed and we found it clean...

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Sage Cabin end of June/early July. Inside the border of the park, about 15-20 min from the Valley. it was great to be able to cook meals in the cabin and eat on the table on the patio. Everything we needed was supplied including a grill and cooking utensils. In case you want to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging are located within the gates of Yosemite National Park in the tiny community of Foresta. It is hard to believe that such a quiet and peaceful place like this exists just fifteen minutes from the sometimes bustling Yosemite Valley.The cabins are very private. Even though the Sage and Lupin cabins are right next to each other they are oriented to maintain maximum privacy. Each cabin has 17-foot-tall wood beam ceilings with ceiling fans and lots of windows to take advantage of the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. When you are at the cabins you can see the top of El Capitan, Yosemite's world famous 3000 ft tall granite cliff.Each cabin has a master bedroom with a comfy king-size bed and down comforter. They also have a full bath, full kitchen, and reading loft. Each cabin also has its own patio with a high quality Weber gas barbecue. Fantastic hiking and running trails with wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife can be accessed right from the cabins.The Sage and Lupin cabins are available for nightly rental and are have all the amenities: TV, telephone, DVD player, microwave, coffee grinder, and coffee maker. The cabins are heated in the winter by propane heaters that looks like a wood-burning stoves. Both cabins have air conditioning for your summer comfort. ... more   less
