Activities/Attractions: Yosemite National Park embraces a spectacular tract of mountain and valley scenery in the Sierra Nevada, which was set aside as a national park in 1890. The park harbors a grand collection of waterfalls, meadows, and forests that include groves of giant sequoias, the world's largest living things.

  • ROCK CLIMBING - Yosemite is a rock climbers dream, with unlimited routes on some of the finest granite in the world. Classic rock climbing information is available from your innkeepers. Feel free to inquire

"I can't tell you how wonderful our stay was at the Larkspur Cabin. We talk about it often and wish we were back there again. We had very enjoyable experiences both during the evenings at the cabin and in the daytime at Yosemite. We've been telling all our friends and family what an unbelievably quiet, secluded and wonderful place we found to stay near Yosemite. We're looking forward to coming back again some day soon."

"Whatever we imagined, this was far, far better. We loved everything from the cats and chickens to the slow burning fire ... Can't think of anywhere more different from home ... We must come back."

"... like so many others, we found peace and renewal here. Even the rooster became our spiritual teacher."

"Beautiful cabins, scenery, & sunrises. We loved the peace and serenity here. Thanks so much for giving us such a wonderful place to stay. We'll be back."
