Welcome to Evergreen Haus - Yosemite / Sierra - Mountain Cabin Lodging


A truly unique, beautiful custom built rustic cabin getaway overlooking beautiful mountain vistas. Outstanding views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains frequented by grazing deer & wildlife or star gazing @ the brilliant night sky. It's one of the last rough cut milled timber cabins built in this area from the lumber mill era, immersing you in that 'step back in time' Yosemite mountain atmosphere. It's rustic exterior is complimented by a rustic elegant interior. Before opening July 4th, 2012, we spent the previous 2 1/2 years restoring the property & cabin and upgraded it with all brand new appliances / furnishings / linens for our guests' enjoyment during their Yosemite trip.

Nestled among towering Pines, Oaks, & Manzanita trees adjacent to the Sierra National Forest is our quiet & secluded neighborhood on Whispering Pines Drive (just off HWY 41). It's composed of only 10 homes ranging from approx 2-4 acres each. Our cabin is conveniently close to the hwy, but just far enough up the road that you don't see or hear the highway traffic, giving our 2 acre grounds that very private, quiet, & secluded mountain atmosphere. A seasonal creek runs right through our property. We live in a separate smaller home behind the cabin, so guests have more privacy, yet we're still onsite for anything needed.

We love our location! We're conveniently located only 10 miles away from Yosemite National Park's south entrance (15 minutes drive), just off HWY 41. In addition, we're just minutes from some of the Sierra National Forest's scenic treasures, like beautiful Bass Lake (7 minutes drive to the Pines Village with restaurants, shops, marina, etc), the Lewis Creek Trail (less than 5 minutes away), the Sierra Vista National Scenic Byway with many hidden gems like
the Nelder Grove of Giant Sequoias (15-20 minutes drive), Fresno Dome (30 minutes drive), just to name a few. We're also centrally located to Oakhurst (about 1000 ft above the north end of town & sometimes 5-10 degrees cooler too), but still close enough (10 minutes drive back down the mountain) to an array of restaurants, 2 supermarkets (Vons & Raleigh's), shopping, gas, & much more. We're close to all, yet away from all the bustling summer crowds.

Our primary goal has been to offer and deliver a more European style Yosemite mountain cabin lodging experience for our guests to truly escape the busyness of everyday life & offer a comfortable atmosphere that promotes a peaceful renewing / recharging of energies that reflects Yosemite National Park. Standing on the deck, one can certainly imagine what life was like for the early pioneers of the past. We operate as a lodging house, but in the same spirit as the Bed & Breakfasts (just currently without meals, even though we do have lots of free pre-packaged breakfast items / drinks that our guests are welcome to help themselves to) with personal customer service. As members of the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau, we're happy to help guests plan their day to day excursions with tips, free maps, publications, & brochures ranging from the main famous places to the less crowded secret local hotspots. Our
mountain cabin theme compliments Yosemite verses the other Victorian, cottage, country, or typical homes with no particular style at all. 2 main things separate us from nearly all of the other numerous cabin rentals in this area. One is the unique nature of the custom built rough cut milled timber cabin construction from the bygone days of the lumber mill era. Someday this cabin will be historical for that reason. Secondly, it's affordable & easy to travel to on short notice. Nearly all of the cabin rentals in this area require a minimum of a week stay (like Fr-Fri or Sat-Sat) for the ENTIRE cabin & they're very expensive for that reason (plus there's additional expensive cleaning fees, etc too), requiring planning / coordinating family / friends schedules (which can be tricky) to split the cost in order to make it affordable. We offer INDIVIDUAL rooms for rent on a nightly basis, which gives guests full access to the cabin's common areas, making the same cabin experience much easier to spontaneously plan for far less cost. Especially compared to just 15 minutes up hwy 41, where it's double to triple our cost. That also make's it unique for guests who don't want to stay @ a typical busy hotel / motel back in town right on the hwy overlooking a crowded concrete parking lot, and are more interested in being truly immersed in a natural, old world mountain atmosphere overlooking mountains, trees, and wildlife during their stay for less cost than a hotel / motel too and closer location to Yosemite. We feel that it delivers in all these areas & hope that eventually our unique hybrid lodging accomodation option will catch on as guests start to really see the value and benefits we're offering compared to our fellow Yosemite area accomodation establishments. We truly hope to make your stay a memorable one. -- The Rainwater Family
