We stayed here for 4 nights. We almost booked a place near Groveland, what a mistake that would of been because of the long drives into the park from there. This cabin is centrally located in the park and is only about 15 minutes from the valley. Very secluded and quiet at the cabin, loved the hot tub after a... More

...if there had not been the Dog Rock Fire in Foresta. We stayed one out of three booked nights and everything was fine. A nice little hut with everything we needed- simple & remote in the middle of Foresta. When we came from the mountain next day the idea was to sit outside the cabin, a nice book & some... More

After finding the Hilltop Cabins on TripAdvisor, my husband and I booked the Sage cabin a year out for our stay here May 31-June 5, 2014. We had a fantastic time and would recommend these cabins to anyone. We arrived on a Saturday, having driven from SFO airport to Yosemite. We stopped in a town along the way (Dublin) to... More

My husband and I rented Sage Cabin from May 20th-23rd 2014. We can't say how much we loved this cabin. Renting process and getting there was easy. Cabin is about 15 mins away from start of the Valley. It was spotlessly clean, equipped with a very cute and functional propane fireplace for heating (useful on the first COLD night!) and... More

We stayed here for two nights in April 2014. It's a little way from the valley floor (about 15 minutes to the Bridalveil Falls and another 10 or so to the visitor centre), which suited us perfectly as even though it wasn't peak season it was crowded in the valley. And anyway, it's a beautiful drive. The cabins were quiet... More

We stayed in the Sage cabin for 4 nights--- since the Sage and Lupin cabins are identical and right next to each other, this review applies equally to the Lupin. Our experience was generally positive except for disappointments stemming from false advertising. First the good: the cabin is well-constructed, well-furnished, and cutely decorated. The hot tub is great. The bed... More

Steve B, Manager at Yosemite Hilltop Cabins, responded to this review

I feel that this review is unfair and that a 2 star rating is unwarranted. Read the review and decide for yourself. As of Jan 2014, I changed internet service providers. The new service is faster and should eliminate the problems described by the above guest. In response to the poor cellular phone coverage described by the above guest, Yosemite... More

Yosemite was the highlight of our recent LA trip and Lupin cabin was very conveniently located, only seven or eight miles away from the Village. The cabin is attractive and well equipped, probably more comfortable for a couple than two friends as we had to make up the sofa bed which was a bit more rough and ready than we... More

We stayed for 4 days in the Lupin Cabin. First, the good: excellent location in Yosemite -- you are around a 15, 20 minute drive from the main valley where all the key sites are located. The cabin was clean and spacious, and out in the forest, you can enjoy peace and quiet. It is stocked with silverware and glassware,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging are located within the gates of Yosemite National Park in the tiny community of Foresta. It is hard to believe that such a quiet and peaceful place like this exists just fifteen minutes from the sometimes bustling Yosemite Valley.The cabins are very private. Even though the Sage and Lupin cabins are right next to each other they are oriented to maintain maximum privacy. Each cabin has 17-foot-tall wood beam ceilings with ceiling fans and lots of windows to take advantage of the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. When you are at the cabins you can see the top of El Capitan, Yosemite's world famous 3000 ft tall granite cliff.Each cabin has a master bedroom with a comfy king-size bed and down comforter. They also have a full bath, full kitchen, and reading loft. Each cabin also has its own patio with a high quality Weber gas barbecue. Fantastic hiking and running trails with wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife can be accessed right from the cabins.The Sage and Lupin cabins are available for nightly rental and are have all the amenities: TV, telephone, DVD player, microwave, coffee grinder, and coffee maker. The cabins are heated in the winter by propane heaters that looks like a wood-burning stoves. Both cabins have air conditioning for your summer comfort. ... more   less
