Our contemporary mountain home offers the best of both worlds – staying in Yosemite, yet, away from the crowds. You will definitely want to see Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point and possibly Tuolumne Meadows too. But, don't miss what is out your back door or just a few miles away.

Every day you can choose between world-class Yosemite sites or exploring “Secret Yosemite” sites off the beaten path by hiking out our back door. Wawona has many swimming holes, several natural waterslides that kids love, and two beloved, easy hikes. The Meadow Loop and The Swinging Bridge. To easily access wilderness, that few do, just go out our back door. Google Secret Yosemite Wawona, South Fork of the Merced Wild and Scenic Recreation Corridor or Best California Swimming Holes on the Chilnuala Falls Trail (pick up Timothy H. Joyce's book, Swimming Holes of California for descriptions and directions to often private swimming holes, some within only a 15-minute hike and/or boulder scramble. Please always use recommended precautions to hike and swim safely.
Other nearby attractions include a Yosemite Visitor Center, the historic Wawona Hotel and it's unique dining room, Wawona Hotel lobby with popular pianist and vocalist Tom Bopp, the Wawona Golf Course, the Wawona Library, specializing in Yosemite books and history, the Yosemite Pioneer History Center, the Wawona School Playground and the Wawona stables.

At home, enjoy our 6 people hot tub, wrap-around deck, and large outdoor gas barbeque, while listening to nearby cascading waterfalls (winter, spring, early summer). There is plenty of room for kids to run and play on park property right off your deck where deer, fawns, and squirrels are frequently seen. Watch for the less commonly seen coyote, woodpeckers or blue herons by the house or just a few minutes walk to the creek or river. Go exploring!
The loft with a queen bed is over the kitchen with views out the many windows as well as overlooking views of the living and dining rooms. There is also a bedroom with two twin beds, a washer and dryer and a half bath upstairs.

Loved the house, it is always the place we want to stay in. The new gas insert was a hit with everyone that stayed in the home. The only item of concern was the coffee pot brewed super slow at the time of our stay. we ended up just doing pour over coffee. We are already planning a trip back. Also if you are ever interested in updated professional interior photos let me know! I am a professional interior photographer. Looking forward to coming back, Thanks again

We loved the Bear Crossing space and location. The kitchen was a pleasure to use and was complete for cooking, Likewise the quality of the tools was the best. The custom decor was beautiful and tasteful. Thank you! We had a relaxing and luxurious stay!

We loved staying at this house. It has everything one could possibly need. And, as previously stated in other reviews, the kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware. The house was very clean, and the hot tub was just wonderful. We tend to be more simple in our decorating taste and did find the decorating with soooooo much bear themed things to be a bit over-the-top. There are some beautiful pieces of photography that were dwarfed by all the other bear-a-phenailia. We would happily recommend Scenic Wonders and Bear Crossing to others.

We had a very nice time and appreciated that the kitchen was well-equipped - esp the fancy microwave and toaster! We used some of the foil and parchment paper for cooking, and the assortment of spices was nice, even though we had brought some of our own. having some saran wrap and small plastic baggies would have been a plus for packing lunches, etc. Liked that the towels were large thick ones. We set the thermostat at 60 but the upstairs was quite warm so we simultaneously ran the dining room fan. It would be nice to have two large garbage cans in the kitchen/dining area to make it easier to separate recyclables from waste.

The house was adorable and very clean. Wonderful location just 45 minutes from Yosemite Valley. Really cute interior furnishings and every implement in the kitchen was there. Very homey and comfortable.

Great house, fully equipped, even with wi-fi which wasn’t included in the description. BBQ and hot tub much appreciated after a day in Yosemite park. Excellent stay even if we didn’t see any bears ????. Maybe just a thing to change: the photo and description of outside is slightly misleading as it really gives the impression the house is very isolated in the middle of the forest, which is not the case.

Our stay was fantastic! We loved the lights on outside the cabin, the hot tub heated, and the cabin warm as we arrived from skiing on our first day there. The cabin had everything we needed and was beautifully decorated. The big windows and seeing the stars and trees at night and in the morning was magnificent. Very beautiful, quiet, and peaceful location. Thank you for helping our family have such a special time in a very special place. We loved it!

We loved our time at Bear Crossing! Check in was so easy. The cabin was warm and welcoming when we arrived. It was a great location for a home base as we explored Yosemite. Best stocked kitchen I have ever experienced in a rental. Made it so easy to prepare meals. Beds were comfortable. Great to have a washer/dryer, too. Helped us to pack less as we traveled across the country from Florida. The view out of the windows has been marred a bit with all the trees that have been cut down (it was not how it looked in the pictures we had seen online). It was not the most scenic place to look out on. But that is not within the purview of Scenic Wonders, and was not a serious negative. And true to the description, we did watch deer grazing right outside the cabin. Really fun for my daughter to see. We loved the hiking trails that were accessible by foot from the cabin. One night we discovered the games and had a family game night with a fire. It was the perfect place for our family. We would highly recommend both Scenic Wonders and Bear Crossing. In fact, we already have!

Nice Cabin and area. I thought the cabin was located in Yosemite West but later found it was in Wawona, that may be an Expedia error but it should be corrected for clients.

Overall we had a great time. The house combined comfort with character and was well situated for both local trails and those further afield. The only downside was the temperature as it got hot during the day. We found a nearby swimming spot (swing bridge) but it was too late to take advantage of it. It would be a good idea to make guests aware of this in the house information pack.

We stayed at Bear Crossing last year at Christmass it was great. So we wanted to try it in the summer it was great also.
