Things have been very busy for us the last 2 days, but really really good!! Yesterday we went on our Great White Shark adventure and had a fabulous day, but sorry to say we didn't see a great white shark :o( . The day started off v early, the boat leaving Berkeley Marina about 6am. We actually sailed underneath the Golden Gate Bridge!! The journey …
... also warmed us up. We were hoping some of the smoke would clear out, but the winds have not changed enough. We boarded the tree tram at Mariposa Grove and put on our head sets to listen to the pre-recorded tour. It was odd, being outside in such a beautiful setting yet isolated through headsets. At the top of the tour, we decided we had enough driving, and headed back on foot on the trail. Before heading back we had lunch by ourselves inside a ...
... to see Old Grizzly the largest and oldest living thing by mass on earth so they say. It is about 3000 years old an amazing Sequoia. We then took and open tram ride up through the Mariposa Grove full of giant Sequoias and other giant trees. The commentary was very good so we really had a feel for the place. It was about 5pm when we arrived back so decided to head to the campsite. Lovely steak on the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Redwoods in Yosemite Wawona
I fall in love
I'm from Argenitna, I visited Yosemite with my parents. We happend to find this place over the internet in ------- and we booked a one bedroom cabin. It was gorgeous!!!! The staff were so amicable that made us feel like home.
There I met my now husband, and we are sooooooo happy. Now for our 2 year anniversary we will stay at The Redwoods In Yosemite!!!!. Check it out. It's worth it.!!!!!!!!!!
This place is kind of a mixed bag depending on what you're looking for. Yosemite Valley is a beautiful 45 minute drive, Mariposa Grove is close, and Oakhurst is about 30 minutes away. Not bad for a major tourist destination. You can go sightsee then come back to your cabin and enjoy a quiet evening by the fireplace. Modern TV and phone. Pay laundry downstairs in the main office.
Luxury in Yosemite
We stayed there 5 nights. Cabin was a premium cabin, a little pricey but well worth it. Kitchen had all the amenities needed and more. Fireplace was nice, with pre-cut wood outside. Cabin had TV, VCR, DVD player and movies in the cabin and at the reception. Arrived late, and there was a late check-in envelope waiting. Great location for Badger's Pass and Giant Sequoias. Only thing was the bathroom was not as luxurious as the rest of the cabin, just a basic bath/shower combo.
BEST VACATION EVER!!!
My fiancee and I recently visited cabin #76 and LOVED it! The cabin is within a mile of the Chilnulna Falls so we enjoyed walking there every morning. This beautiful 2 bed 2 bath featured a big fireplace in the living room that made for a romantic setting! We also were able to BBQ almost every night on the built in BBQ on the back deck. The cabin was also close to Oakhurst (I think about 20 miles) so we would make our way into town for a movie or additional shopping. Yosemite is breathless and the cabin we stayed at was beautiful! We will definaltey be back!!!!
Christmas at Yosemite . . . magical!
Our family spent Christmas at The Redwoods in Yosemite a couple of years ago. It was the best Christmas ever. We had a three-bedroom house that was phenomenal. Aside from being beautiful, it was the best-equipped accommodation of its kind we have ever encountered. Everything worked, there was lots of room, and then, of course, there was the national park. We all drove around oohing and ahhing at the gorgeous scenery and the waterfalls in the snow. We built snowmen, went sledding, and fed the deer that came to our back door. The kids went skiing and snow-boarding at Badger Pass, while the grandparents had tea at the Ahwani Hotel. Everyone went on a snowshoe hike in Mariposa Grove. We all loved it and plan to go back again next year!
We visited the Redwoods in Yosemite in March 2004, end of Winter. The cabins really vary. They are all family/individual owned, the Redwoods group is the rental mgt firm, but the furniture, decore, etc, are all up to individual owners. I spent time on the phone before hand (very nice folks) reviewing different options: no pets, secluded as we have 3 loud little ones, two baths if possible, nice fireplace etc. They found the perfect cabin for us (Standard, 2 BD, 2 BA # 17), up a hill, nice flat yard, not right next door to another cabin (as many of them are close to each other). Not fancy, but clean, good space, 2 bedrooms and a nice fireplace. The kids loved it. We had deer in the back yard every AM and a nice view of the granet mtn and nice sunsets. Good/easy trek to nearby falls on the back side of the neighborhood, friendly folks at the front desk (came up with a huge load of wood when asked), great skiing for little ones at Badger. We'd go back, but every cabin is different, spend a lot of time with the pictures on the site and ask a lot of questions (and call back and ask them again of a 2nd res person). The gal I spoke with knew each cabin and she directed us to a great fit. Plan on going back in January, 45 mins to the valley sure, but the seclusion is nice, and the Redwoods on the Wawona side are great.
Given that the two reviews posted here were so radically different, my boyfriend and I were a bit nervous upon arriving at the Redwoods. Thankfully, we were delighted with cabin #77! We chose the Redwoods, and the cabin, specifically because we have two dogs and it is almost impossible to find anywhere in the Valley that will take pets.
The worst place I have ever stayed
Sure, Yosemite lodging is overpriced, but I have stayed in hostels for $20 a night that are nicer than the cabin my husband and I spent our first anniversary in. The carpet was filthy, there was dried food on the couches- we had to put sheets on them to sit down- absolutely none of the furnishings had been updated since the early '80's, there were DIRTY dishes in the cupboards, and the musty smell was rank. When I brought these concerns to the staff at the front desk, she said "I'll let housekeeping know." I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. The price they charge for this HOLE is criminal, especially considering we splurged for a very special time, that was great nonetheless, no thanks to The Redwoods..
We stayed here for 4 nights in June, following 4 nights in Sequioa Kings Canyon.
The cabins all vary, ours (#84) was very nice in a kind of retro 70's chalet kind of way.
All the facilites in the chalet are just what you need, full kitchen bathroom and living space. Ours had a great veranda with bar-b-q.
Be warned though, there are no supplies provided in the cabin, so buy before you arrive as the local store is quite pricey. Also, the main Yosemite valley is a good 45 minute drive away.
Overall we had a great time there.
