(11N) Margaret's Description

Margaret's cabin retreat by the river is a  3 bedroom 2 bath Gold rated cabin that sleeps up to 8 people.
If you want a taste of Yosemite from your living room chair...come to Margaret's Cabin in the tiny community of Wawona just inside Yosemite National Park. . Nestled amongst the towering pines and whispy cedars on Chilnualna Lane, this sunlit retreat will fill you with a deep sense of rest and quiet appreciation. The living room’s floor to ceiling windows offers a view of the forest and the river beyond. Nature is just a pane of glass away. While sipping morning tea, you may watch the squirrels scampering across the pine needles, the blackbirds winging through the trees, the spring wildflowers in the native grass, or an occasional coyote crossing the land. In the summer, 
you may gather your beach chair, towel, and inner tube and take a 2-minute walk down a dirt path to the jumping rock and swimming hole on the South Fork of the Merced River. In winter, you may come in from skiing at nearby Badger Pass, warm your hands with a steaming beverage, and watch the snowflakes drifting down while preparing a meal.  With vaulted ceilings in the open living space-kitchen and vaulted ceilings in the upstairs bedrooms, Margret's cabin is both modern and mountain-cozy. 

Margaret, a teacher, worked summers during the ’50s at the Wawona Hotel and saved enough to buy two adjacent lots at the end of Chilnualna Lane. She built a tiny, one-bedroom cabin that she visited often to fish, golf, and enjoy nature with friends and family. When the original house burned down in 2018, her family envisioned a new cabin offering the same cozy feeling but with a southern-facing great room and kitchen, letting in more light and giving a bigger view of nature. No pets allowed.  "EV Charging Station available within five miles of the cabin"

 About the Area

Nestled just 4 miles inside the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park is the charming and historic town of Wawona. Located at the base of Chilnualna Falls (the second-highest vertical drop waterfall in Yosemite), and home to the principal trailheads into the southern Yosemite wilderness, Wawona is also the closest town to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. 
Wawona has the feel of a small town but is bustling with activity! Over 160 residents, including Yosemite Park employees, live in Wawona and can be seen gathering at the town's community center, playing a pickup game of basketball at the elementary school, jogging on one of the many picturesque trails or simply walking their dogs and baby strollers through the winding residential streets. The historic Wawona Swinging Bridge boasts the best natural water slide in the Park! The historic village is filled with docents, stagecoach rides, horseback rides, and barn dances in the summer season and the Wawona Meadow Loop offers year-round riparian meadow wildlife viewing.
Wawona was known to the local Native American Miwok in their language as Pallachun (a good place to stay). It is located entirely within Yosemite National Park (it preceded the founding of the park as a national recreation area), and is located on the South fork of the wild and scenic Merced River, on the main highway (State Route 41) from Fresno to Yosemite Valley.
Galen Clark, who helped gain preservation legislation for Mariposa Grove and what later became part of Yosemite National Park, occupied the Wawona area in 1855 and established a tourist rest and modest ranch which he later sold and made into a hotel and resort property (the Wawona Hotel). The Wawona post office was established in 1878 and was originally called Clark's Station.
The Redwoods In Yosemite has over 120 vacation rental homes and is proud to say that all of them are located in Wawona. All are within walking distance to everything that Wawona has to offer and every one of them is surrounded by the majesty of Yosemite National Park!
