Stoneman House Rustic Rooms (not tent cabins) Curry Village
in Curry Village, is Stoneman House, a wood building of 18 rooms with private baths, wrap around verandas & Adirondack chairs. My room 817 faced east. Parking is 130 steps away, so no car noise. It is 1 minute walk to the Front Desk (Registration), Guest Lounge, Meadow Grill, Bike Rental, gift & grocery store. I barely heard any neighbors. There is: ice bucket, ceiling fan, two full beds, dresser. mirror, artwork, bed table & lamp, 2 chairs, hair dryer, room heater. Front door also has a screen door. No table inside. Guests sit outside the room & eat sitting in the chairs.. Guests garner outdoor chairs not in use, so chairs come 'n go..There is NO: fridge, coffee maker, shower cap, TV, small toiletries, table, microwave. The ice machine, is between room 814 and 815. . There is: Very nice decor, alarm clock, 2 wood chairs, shampoo & soap dispensers in the shower on the wall (eco friendly) and the sink, six wood hangers, hair dryer, thick white towels, quilt spreads, carpet, ceiling fan, window shade, 1 luggage rack. It is a 1 minute walk to the Front Desk ( open 24 hrs), Guest Lounge slow internet. The Wood Cabins are quite a distance away from the Front Desk area, as is parking for them. To find the "Registration, Front Desk, from SouthSide Drive, turn right onto Curry Village Dr. When you see the sign, in my photo, make a hard right turn onto a driveway & parking area while registering. Front Desk ph.# is 209 372-8333. Meadow Grill & Pizza place were closed for the season.

Curry Village Cabins
We spent 4 nights in a Curry Village cabin, our first time to do so. The "cabins" are separate units in either a 2-plex or 4-plex that are spread out in a wooded area 25-50 yards from a parking lot. Concrete pathways lead to some but not all of the units, so don't count on rolling your luggage from your car to the cabin.
We stayed in a 2-plex cabin that shared one wall with the other unit. The other 3 walls had windows that opened to the outdoors. The common wall bordered the bathroom and walk-in closet. We did not hear any sounds from our neighbors.
The cabin was furnished with bedding, towels, hand soap, shower gel and shampoo, one double bed and one single bed, a bedside stand with lamp, full size chest of drawers, built-in desk, 2 chairs, tabletop oscillating fan, wall heater, and extra blankets. There was a ceiling light, one over the desk and one in the closet. There were many unused electrical outlets. The living area was carpeted and the bathroom had vinyl flooring. The shower stall was tiled. All the windows had curtains that could be drawn. We were instructed to close the windows while we slept or were away in order to prevent squirrels from getting in.
The cabin was clean and comfortable. Everything was in working order. The beds might be too short for anyone over 6 feet tall. We enjoyed our stay and would stay at the Curry Village cabins again.

Mini Getaway Wedding Anniversary
Our wedding anniversary was coming up. The only place we can think doing something outdoor. So we deiced to go to Yosemite. Since they only allow 50% reservation. We booked Curry Village and stay in canvas tent cabin. We got our tent and it was #747. When you first get your cabin make sure to open the door, let the heat out before getting inside. Wait about 10min or you will get heat stroke.. Thats what happen to me. The cabin where we stay is near the trail hike Vernal Fall and Nevada fall. You do not need to drive. There are no outlet in the cabin, if you wish to have outlet you need to book cabin with heater. Outside your cabin there a bear proof storage. It is big enough for your ice chest. (FYI must bring). During the time we where there, the dinning pavilion was remodel. The only food was Meadow Grill and two food trucks. Meadow Grill food was overprice and does not taste good at all. The food truck was good but overprice. There is a mini market or you get drive to the Village grocery store if you want more selection. There is a HOT food area where you can get ribs or chicken for your lunch or dinner. Things you must bring during your stays.
snacks for hiking
water bottles or water backpack
wear comfortable clothes (workout/yoga clothes)
hiking shoes (must)
light jacket for night time
shoes for shower
caddy to hold your shampoo and etc...
woman (bring a summer dress with you) it is easier for take off and on when you head to shower.

Great Location, Dusty but Comfy
Stayed here in "heated" tent cabin; great location and loved that the park is very uncrowded due to Covid limits. Bring a bike to get around the valley (or rent one). The tent cabin I had (323) was in the sun for a lot of the day and got very hot. Had to open all windows to cool it off when the sun finally went down. Linens/bed was comfy but every beam in the tent was full of dust - I brought Clorox wipes and cleaned most but couldn't reach the baseboards. Bathrooms were very clean and had few people except as Labor Day holiday approached. The tent had a light and 2 plugs for use. The heat is supposed to be off until after Labor Day - on the last night I was there (the hottest day there) - I woke up at 5 AM hearing a noise. The heat was on and I was way too hot - had to switch the electrical circuit off to get it to go off. They credited my 20% of my last day due to this issue, but it is clear some maintenance is needed! Such a great location - swimming holes in river nearby and great place to look at Half Dome.

Gorgeous Outdoor Adventure
My daughter and myself decided, due to the Pandemic, to go on a mother/ daughter road trip. We left from Seattle Wa and headed to Yosemites Curry Village. We stayed in what I would call a cabin/tent. It had 2 twin beds and a full size bed. We got a room with heat even though you can't use the heat this time of year, and you don't really need it either, but the rooms with heat also have one plug in. Which is what We wanted. The whole experience was beautiful. The valley is so beautiful words won't do it justice. There are plenty of hikes to do, we did mist trail🤪 which was worth it! There are places to swim in the river which was nice on the 90+ degree days. I would totally recommend this place to stay it's close the most things you'd want to do.
