This Yosemite cabins for rent is an adorable A-frame holiday home that has a rather reserved and charming character. As its owner is looking for quieter residents, this place is a great base for kids who are a little more introverted. The blue and red rooms, right across from each other, have a set of firm, comfortable beds with the cutest checkered sheets! No eating in the bedroom though - the walls get sticky easily from dirty hands. A functional kitchen is available to make intimate family meals. Being located in a rather quiet neighbourhood, the serene atmosphere allows families of deer and wild turkeys to wander around the compounds at times. You can watch them from the large windows in the living room.

Another A-framed listing full of windows, light and life, and kind of like the house from Goldilocks and the Three Bears. A lot of the decoration in this house is themed after bears, one of Yosemite’s majestic local residents. Located within the gates of Yosemite’s National Park, it is a suitable theme after all. Sit out on the patio and enjoy your surroundings. The master bedroom, second bedroom and the bedroom for kids read just like the Goldilocks tale. The master bedroom looks more stern and grown up, the second bedroom is soft and frilly, and the third one is just right for children with a compact, cute bed and too many soft toys to count. Bathroom amenities are all provided, but remember to bring your shampoo and conditioner. Everything’s much easier when you don’t need to micromanage resources. On top of that, this place comes with a great number of add ons and small perks. It has sandwich ziplock bags, a selection of spices, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sugar and even propane for a barbecue. (There’s also a jacuzzi!)

From the outside, it might not seem like much but a humble little house nestled in Yosemite National Park, however, from a different perspective, it does look like Santa’s hidden abode. With a spacious living area comes more room for activities for a group of people; be it family or friends. The pool table definitely fits in as one of the best alternatives to staring down at our cellphones. Everybody can gather around the pool table and have a few games whilst catching up with one another. With the bathroom attached to the room upstairs, it is a whole lot more convenient for the people who are sleeping upstairs. Also, the bathtub allows anyone to enjoy a nice warm bubble bath and relax whilst indulging in the peace and serenity of their surroundings. With the enormous amount of space in this master bedroom together with a majestic bed, TV and a couch that looks out onto the beautiful Yosemite National Park, you would never want to leave this place. The rental also has a third room with a king bed, two single beds and a sofa bed.

You know those coming of age books where the kids go to some creekside house for a summer or holiday they’ll never forget? Live out your childhood stories with your own children at this beautiful, quaint house by a lovely stream. While the second floor of the house is the owner’s residence, the bottom floor is all yours to stay in. Yep, it’s actually right outside your home. You could even fish, a seasonal option. If not, just enjoy the rush of natural, clear water right outside your doorstep, a calming force of nature on its own. Step inside the cosy cottage, and you’ll find an efficiently organized space with cosy facilities like a gas fireplace and two plush bunk beds, one of them extra large. Satellite television and Wi-Fi keep you connected to the 21st century in this 70s summer adventure novel type throwback. The compact bathroom is stocked with fresh fluffy towels and all you need for a good clean bath.
