As its name suggests, the Red A-Frame in Far Meadow is off the beaten track – fourteen miles above Bass Lake in the Sierra National Forest.
Head down Old Yosemite Coach Road to this chic cabin in Yosemite in the woods and discover a rustic modern experience. Located above a secluded meadow, the house is very private and surrounded by native forests just a short drive away from the south entrance to Yosemite National Park. Gently harmonizing with it’s environment, this back to basics cabin provides all of the fundamentals of country living with a touch of contemporary style and modern comforts. The simple clapboard construction and rustic wood interiors are warm and homey and the elevated construction gives you the feeling of being immersed into the treetops.
The A-frame shape infuses the cabin with light and space with room for two on the queen sofa bed and an additional single if needed. The kitchen is well equipped and there’s a breakfast table for two. You’ll have ample private space outside for alfresco dining and hanging out in nature.
Casual and effortless, this cabin is a great example of relaxing, rustic style and easy living.

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.
