Intimate, simple, sometimes even a little primitive, the cabin is an American icon. Its appeal is both as a basic form of shelter and as a treasury of feelings, sensations and memories of family and friends.
More than just a structure, this cabin rental in Yosemite is a way of life. Located on twenty acres of pristine land in a remote meadow at seventy five hundred feet elevation, it’s surrounded by the Sierra National Forest.
When we discovered Far Meadow, this classic American log cabin was already here. So we gave it a face lift, modernizing the roof and updating the interior, without compromising its soul. It’s close to the A-frame cabin, but in a world of its own.
One room, classic style and a slice of heaven all your own. This is Far Meadow.

Iconic, majestic and one of nature’s most dazzling wonders, Yosemite and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains with their towering Sequoias are some of the best that California has to offer.
Nearby Lewis Creek is a quieter and less crowded trail for a peaceful walk in the woods and is book-ended by both Corlieu Falls and the smaller Red Rock Falls, gorgeous cascades and creek side trails. Wawona Meadow Loop Trail is a lovely pastoral loop that great for just meandering through the wide valley floor.
Mariposa Grove is home to the biggest sequoia grove in Yosemite and to the 2700 year old “Grizzly Giant”. It’s pretty crowded in high season at the lower loop levels but Wawona Point and the Outer Loop Trail are higher up, less crowded and worth the climb.
In town, The Forks has been around for over 70 years and still has one of the best burgers we’ve ever had, with a cool casual diner vibe and outdoor patio with great views of Bass Lake. Sierra Sky Ranch is a historic, down home steakhouse with a proper saloon and Raley’s is like the great general stores of the past and is the best last stop for supplies on your way into the valley.
Be sure to hit the Bass Lake farmers market, a small and delicious event every Wednesday with local purveyors of excellent produce and treats at Pine’s Village.
It’s approximately a three and a half hour drive from Los Angeles and four and half from San Francisco.
