CUSTOM HOME built in the Arts and Craft tradition. The house and decor echoes with a craftsmanship wood interior, best quality and tasteful design which has withstood the test of time.
From the Main entry, there is a window seat nook allowing a view of the woods or place to read a good book. In the vaulted living room, a cheery fireplace lights the comfortable decor which connects to the wood-floored dining room. The wooden cabinetry and leaded doors tell of an era dedicated to tasteful wood trim and skilled detail. The flow through kitchen has counter tops selected to resemble the speckled granite so common in Yosemite. A fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities and other amenities allowing dining on the adjoining deck or inside in the distinctive window alcove. Downstairs, is the family room with a futon and another fireplace. There is a TV/DVD, for movie view, (sorry no Satellite). Two bedrooms with a queen bed in the first bedroom, and a full & twin size beds in the second bedroom. Each bedroom has a three window alcove and a rounded window seat; perfect for viewing the resplendent outdoors. The family room is ready for jigsaw puzzlers or games by the fire and includes a mini-bar for that late night snack of s’mores. Fabrics in the house interweave the Indian, Asian and Arts and Crafts themes popular in Yosemite during that era.

There are two and 1/2 bathrooms, one on each floor, tiled with an Indian theme and arts and craft wood shelving. Upstairs is the romantic master bedroom hideaway with its vintage Morris chair and warm glow of art glass lanterns. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, its own nook for reading, as well as its own deck, to catch a vista view of the sunset peeking through the sugar pines and spruce trees. With its refined, clean lines, this house is a place to treasure Yosemite. Built to the “craftsman” look of a time past, this cabin reflects an era when we had time to think, walk in the woods or be with the people that we care about. Turn off the telephone, leave the computer in its bag and enjoy a simpler world at Ahwahnichi Lodge. There are 3 parking spots over summer months, and 2 over winter months.

The house is gorgeous. Spacious, well-appointed, good location and clean and welcoming. I did a lot of cooking and the kitchen is well stocked (maybe you could add a garlic press?) :) There was a lot of thought put into the design and layout of the home. It was a perfect location for the family. If I had one other minor suggestion - may I suggest newer towels? The ones you had were a bit rough, but this was a very minor criticism. Thank you for a great week. We hope to come back next spring! Also, your employees that I contacted (when I sent out questions, etc.) were all very responsive and friendly. Thank you to everyone!

The home was cozy, very clean, well equipped, and had all of the space we needed. The location met all of our needs as well. We would stay here again. The only amenity missing was WiFi orca cell signal. It was wonderful to disconnect but it would have been helpful for planning our days and in case of an family emergency. Thank you for the great communication regarding our reservation and instructions for the house/park entry. It was very helpful. Overall great experience!

Loved The quality and quantity of windows, wood flooring and bedroom carpets, decor and furnishings, location and floor plan. Suggestion: place a small trashcan in the kitchen, i.e. under the sink.

Great place! Super clean and the location couldn’t be better. One suggestion would be to include WiFi. It’s in the area and best for communicating. Phone house was a complete waste.

We had a wonderful stay at the Ahwahnichi Lodge. Everything was as described on Airbnb, check in was easy, and the house was comfortable and cozy!

We spent two days visiting Yosemite. The close proximity of the lodge was fantastic. The lodge is filled with high end amenities and it was spotless. Thank you for a great stay.

Beautiful home and location. We were unable to turn up the heat in the upstairs bedroom and the temperature would not go above 65.

House was great, we had a great time. Only feedback was I didn't read anywhere that shampoo/conditioner wasn't included until I read someone's review after we had already left. If it was written somewhere I may have missed it, but it would've been great to know that in advance so we could've brought our own.

The lodge was great. The number one priority for us when staying at a house on vacation is cleanliness. The Ahwahnichi Lodge was clean and homey and we enjoyed all aspects of the house except for the lack of WiFi, which was not that big of a deal, but it was the only thing the lodge lacked.

Great location and high quality property. I am sure it gets said all the time, but not having wifi is very difficult and not something in this day and age that should be the case with a property of this rental value. It certainly does not need to be fast (nor should it be to avoid having people sat streaming movies the whole time), but having none is not good.

Great home for our family get together. Home was spotless upon our arrival, well stocked kitchen, plenty of firewood and perfect floor plan for our extended family. Upstairs master bedroom provided privacy when the rest of the family chose to stay up late.

We loved our stay. Quiet location close to both Mariposa and all the sightseeing in the Valley. The Ahwanichi lodge couldnt have been more perfect. Beautiful, clean, organized, fully stocked kitchen. Loved the roominess of the bedrooms and common areas of the lodge. Hope to come again! I will definitely be recommending this location .

I like the fact the place is well maintained and located in a somewhat remote foresty area. Enjoyed nature at it’s finest. Lack of cable and internet made bonding with the family more intimate. I just feel bad, when my wife told me we forgot to leave tip money for the housekeeper. We were already halfway out of the park and got busy with the cleanup and packing of our stuff in the vehicle. So sorry.

The experience with Scenic Wonders was prefect. Our group had a wonderful time on the property, and would highly recommend the experience to anyone looking for a Yosemite trip.
