Apple Tree Bear House is 4 miles inside Yosemite National Park in the beautiful and quiet neighborhood of Wawona away from the crowds. The house is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,050 square foot home that comfortably accommodates 10 guests. It is near the end of the road making it very peaceful and quiet. The home has central heating and air conditioning and a generator if the power goes out. Bring your friends and family here to spend quality time together in this idyllic setting.
The front of the house features a 44 foot, 500+ square foot deck that looks across to wide open park land. There is a propane barbecue for outside grilling that’s only steps from the kitchen and a picnic table with a large umbrella that provides comfortable outdoor eating. The back deck features a covered gazebo over the hot tub that is steps from both master bedrooms, plus a glass topped round table, umbrella, and chairs. Towels are provided. The spacious, open living room/dining room/kitchen features a cozy propane fireplace that provides comfortable ambiance on cold nights. A wide granite peninsula separates the dining room from the kitchen. The dining room table allows space for 6 to 8 people, plus more seating at the bar. The kitchen has most everything needed to cook your favorite meal, including an ice cream maker. The downstairs master bedroom features a queen size log bed and a twin bed with a trundle. The bathroom has both a shower and a unique, large soaking tub great for both adults and kids. A sliding glass door opens to the back deck and hot tub. The third bedroom features a log queen bed with a bathroom directly across the hall. One of the couches in the living room makes into a comfortable queen bed providing yet another separate sleeping area. The upstairs master bedroom has a Cal-King bed with a gas-log fireplace and a wall mounted TV. Enjoy the comfortable window seat to read a book or take a nap on. The newly remodeled bathroom has a walk-in shower. A short hike from the house takes you to the lower Chilnualna Falls, swinging bridge, or several swimming holes in the South Fork of the Merced River. Avid hikers might enjoy a more strenuous hike to the top of upper Chilnualna Falls that continue on to the top of Wawona Dome. Wawona is a truly unique place to base your exploration of world-famous Yosemite National Park. Inside the community of Wawona, often known as the “quiet” part of Yosemite, is the beautiful and historic Wawona Hotel with its tennis courts and 9 hole golf course, the pioneer history center where you and your family can take a ride in Burl “Buckshot” Mayer’s two horse powered stage coach. Wawona also boasts the only public horseback riding stables and one of the two gas station in Yosemite. Catch the free shuttle bus to the majestic Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias that’s 6 miles away. Of course you won’t want to miss the scenic 45 minute drive over the mountain to the spectacular Yosemite Valley, or majestic Glacier Point overlooking the valley below. During winter enjoy the family friendly ski area of Badger Pass, or continue down to Yosemite Valley to see the breathtaking winter scenes and skate in the outdoor ice skating rink. Then return to the ambiance of Apple Tree Bear House for a relaxing evening in the hot tub, or enjoying an evening of games and puzzles.

We called customer service due to a flat tire and they sent someone to help us--even though it was not an issue at all related to our stay. That was very courteous of them and we really appreciate their help.

Our first stay in Yosemite and we didn’t know what to expect, so didn’t know if this would be a good spot or not. It was great we were close to Mariposa Grove and enjoyed the drives to Yosemite village and Glacier point. The house made us very much aware we were in a nature park it has a wonderful feel to it. The house also had absolutely everything that we could have asked for and management was readily accessible and helpful. Would love to return.

The house was lovely, and perfectly sized for our family. We loved returning to a comfortable and inviting living space after a long day of hiking. We hope to be able to come back soon.

This is a picturesque place with amenities like an on demand water heater so no one gets a cold shower or bath. The hot tub is perfect! My whole family and I stayed here for a family birthday and we would absolutely stay again! Thank you for a great experience!

Clean, cozy cabin. Needs a tv in first bedroom and the ez-up on front deck looks a bit “ghetto”; suggest an awning or adding a porch.

The experience is pretty good. The house is clean, everything is functioning properly and the jacuzzi is amazing. On Thanksgiving night, one of my friends locked themselves outside of the bedroom and we called the management team for help. They sent a staff member to help us immediately and solved the problem. I really appreciate their responsiveness and kindly help. It was a fabulous Thanksgiving trip for myself and all my friends. Thanks!

We had conflicts with the Ferguson wildfire so had to detour to get into the park, however, this was only a mior inconvenience. The Apple Tree Bear House is an excellent property and thoroughly enjoyed walking to the river for a dip and the hot tup. The kitchen has everything you need and sleeping accomodations are spatious. The home is in new condition and has a large deck for eating / cooking outdoors.
