The Ahweanee in Foresta, Yosemite National Park

Family-friendly cabin in Yosemite National Park with spa tub
We call our cabin, The Ahweanee,' because we designed it in the motif of the grand Ahwahnee Hotel, but at only 1,250 square feet of house and another 1,250 square feet of deck, it is so much smaller. Master bedroom has a queen be; 2nd bedroom is a den and has a queen bed and a queen futon and the great room has a queen hide-a-abed. There is also a sofa bed in the great room with an extra mattress for the sofa bed in the master closet.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location and cabin in Yosemite
The cabin itself is wonderful and accurate to the description. The location is amazing - close enough to all the attractions but away from the craziness. We loved it and if we ever returned we would stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Quiet and private
We had a wonderful stay! After days of hiking and exploring Yosemite, it was great to come back to our own private place away from the crowds in the Valley. The cabin was well appointed and had everything we needed. We loved sitting out in the porch in the mornings with a nice cup of coffee. We even stayed up to watch the Perseods showers at night and the sky was magnificent with “shooting stars”….an astronomer’s dream!…..we will be back!

4/5 Good

Great location inside Yosemite
The location of this property was perfect for daily trips to various locations within Yosemite. About 25 minutes to the valley and even closer to Tuolumne Grove (giant sequoias). The layout of the house was great for 2 couples-master bedroom had its own bathroom and 2nd bedroom had a bathroom outside the room, so everyone had their privacy. One thing to note is that there is no dishwasher or garbage disposal. As someone who is a little finicky about cleanliness I didn’t trust that the prior occupants hand washed their dishes well enough so I rewashed all plates, cups and utensils before we used them. A dishwasher would have definitely been a plus as far as sanitation goes. I personally do not like scraping food scraps into the trash so I really missed having a garbage disposal, but to others this may not be important. The first day we were there we noticed ants on the kitchen counters so had to remove all food we had stored there. Ants were also on the cabinet shelves. Also noted them on master bath vanity. I messaged Alex through VRBO app about the ants but he did not respond. I realize there was probably nothing to be done in the moment but he needs to get an exterminator in there to place ant baits, etc before the next occupants arrive. My son and daughter-in-law noted that the 2nd bathroom toilet did not fill up with water automatically so each time they flushed they had to open the tank lid and jiggle the flapper/chain. I noticed that this was mentioned in the guest book by another guest in the past, so apparently it has not been fixed or the issue is recurring (?) We were a little hot sleeping in the evenings. Could not lower AC thermostat below 78 degrees. If you are used to sleeping in a cooler temperature this could be a source of discomfort. We had the fan on as well as opened the windows a little do that helped somewhat. Beds were comfortable but one of the pillows in master bedroom was very soft/flat. Again, this is a personal preference, but having another choice of a firmer pillow would have been appreciated. All in all, great location, nice layout/floor plan, but needs attention to maintenance and insect issues.
