Everything amazing! The only criticism is we asumed the laundry room was available cause it was in the pictures of the property so we didn’t pack a lot of clothes.

The cabin needs work. Mostly in Good condition but the carpet is in need of cleaning and the deck needs work where nails are sticking up, the gates are dangerously loose and not stable. Bathrooms were clean and nice.

Papa bear cabin is in the perfect location. The house was clean, had a well stocked kitchen with essentials like utensils, dishes, pots etc. We have stayed here twice and enjoyed our stay both times. We will definitely return again!

We did not expect the cabin to be in such a community of cabins. It was an older cabin and it showed. But it suited our purpose for the trip to Yosemite. We enjoyed the musical gentleman at the Wawonna Hotel in the evenings.

The PaPa Bear Cabin is a great location from which to explore Yosemite. It is a short scenic drive to the Valley Floor and very close to the Mariposa Grove. The cabin was fully furnished and our group of six enjoyed most of our meals there. The only drawback was the beds. All of them are long past their usefulness to the point of being very uncomfortable.

Enjoyed ours stay but would have liked check out to be leater since we could not get in Until 4. Other than that everything was good. They had pots, plates, utensils. Just drink your own food to cook.

Really Appreciated the updates regarding access to the park during Covid 19 and information on how to enter the park with the documents. Was worried but had no problems with accessing the park.

Papa Bear Cabin was perfect for our family vacation. Wish we could have stayed an entire week. We will try to book earlier next visit. The cabin was perfect size and kitchen was great. It was a bit outdated, but we were in the woods in a cabin! Who cares!. Looking forward to our next Yosemite visit. Did not have enough time to see it all!.

The cabin was very comfortable and had all the essential equipment (kitchen utensils, dishwasher, grill, bathroom toiletries) needed for a relaxing stay. Being located inside the park was a huge advantage for us. We will def consider staying at one of your properties again next time we make a trip to Yosemite.

Perfect location.. it was beautiful.. fully stocked home. A little too close to other houses, butstill great. A couple of the heaters didn't work was really the only issue. I would definitely stay here again. Very close to everything for enjoying the mountains!

Five friends who went to college together 45 years ago. Never been to Yosemite. Papa Bear Cabin was great, being in the Park was great, being near Mariposa was great. Five days in the Park, saw all the sights, hiked easy and moderate trails, fantastic.

We were very pleased with our stay. Papa Bear Cabin was very clean, comfortable, and at a great location. We wished we could have stayed a whole week there! Feedback for Scenic Wonders: thank you for sharing this cozy cabin with us. Your instructions were perfect and we appreciate the notebook with sightseeing tips. The only thing we’d ask for is an additional dinner plate. We had 8 people in our group so we were short one. Thanks again, Stutzes

This was a family vacation with my father, my son and daughter-in-law and my grandson. Four generations ages 9 - 88 where we tried to find activities in the park appropriate for all of our ages. Everyone had a marvelous time viewing the waterfalls and massive rock formations. My father especially enjoyed Mariposa Grove where we were able to park in a handicap area, so that he had access to the Grizzly Giant, California Tunnel and Fallen Monarch trees. While my father spent time in Yosemite Village at the Visitor Center, Museum and Ansel Adams gallery, the rest of us hiked to the Vernal Falls viewing area on the bridge over the Merced River.

Easy booking and check-in/out process. Cabin was amazingly clean, well-stocked and comfortable. WiFi and Satellite worked fantastic! Only things I would consider enhancing would be to add more dinner plates and supply a reasonable batch of firewood. Overall it was a great location!

Staying at the Papa Bear Cabin was like a dream, everything was perfect, the cabin and the location. The cabin is large and fully equipped and cozy. There are trails by walk to the falls and the river. Thank you for a wonderful host. Greenwald family, Israel.

What a great base to tour Yosemite! We had a great time hiking the trails and getting off the beaten path. Being able to come back to the cabin and relax as if we were at home made it even better.
