Getting to Far Meadows was an adventure, and truly in the back country.Once there, we couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The log cabin was great and rustic. We moved to the AFrame for the next 2 nights and had great time., We hiked the back meadows, up into th thick woods. Took Danny’s advice to hike to Upper Jack Ass Lake and found our most amazing spot for our entire 12 d stay in California. We will definitely be back!!

Like Yosemite Park without the park, very well done and thought out cabins. We stayed in an A Frame, there is also a old Log Cabin with modern fittings, and we saw a second A Frame in the works hidden behind a tree line. The caretaker/host was very thoughtful and made sure we were taken care of with firewood, hiking tips and offered to lead us on some activities if we wanted. Off the grid, off the map, just perfect for a getaway to really connect. Don’t expect TV and the like, there was wifi, but like the power and water, all off grid( internet was satellite, power solar and water well). Hate to spoil it by telling others about it, but if I had just one piece of advice to give, it would be: GO!

We have stayed at Far Meadow/old yosemite a couple of times, and it is always everything you’d want it to be. The old yosemite cabin is REALLY pretty and being down closer to Oakhurst makes it a great place to stay if you want to be able to go into Yosemite Valley for the day. We also spent a few days up at the A-Frame cabin and its definitely one of our favorite places to go. Its just the right blend of simple/rustic without actually roughing it at all. Both places are well tended, the host is friendly and helpful, and its overall probably the most relaxing experience you could imagine. All in all, the properties are what you make of them… there’s really something for everyone.. if you’re very active/outdoor adventurer, there’s a ton of exploring to do… if you’re more of a foodie/hangout type there is an amazing deck with a fabulous grill on it for perfect outdoor cooking and eating/hanging out. We’ll be back!

Hi Jacqueline: Just a quick thanks to you, Ron and the new caretakers at Far Meadow. Just got back from a wonderful trip — you don’t truly appreciate how special the place is until you get back to the noise of LA! Please also thank Heinz and Veronique — I did not realize it was them who were staying in the Air Stream until they were leaving, and I recognized their dog from the website. I feel rather guilty, as I must have “evicted” them from the A-frame. Best regards, and looking forward to being back soon!
