We stayed at Charlottes Station last summer. It was July, and there were wildfires just north of us in another part of Yosemite, and it was (very) hot, but even with all that, we would do it again in a heartbeat, The cabin is not like any ordinary vacation rental. Upon walking in and looking around, you feel like you've been invited into a family home and made to feel like you're part of their historic legacy. Some of the furnishings look like antiques and all are comfortable and well-maintained. The kitchen is spacious and updated and has everything you could possibly need, plus there is a washer and dryer in the cabin, which was a big plus for a family with three little girls.
The only downsides are that there is no AC (I know, I sound like a spoiled city kid), and if you're going in late summer, during a heat spell like we were, then be prepared to be a little hot. There are two portable fans in the unit, but it was still quite warm at night. The other was that the second bathroom, which comes off the second (kids') bedroom, has a step up and is quite a tight space--so it wasn't something our youngest could manage to get in and out of easily on her own.
Otherwise, such an amazing place. Oh, and did I mention the absolute privacy--the cabin sits up on a little hill and you can hardly see any other cabins around you (some of the other cabins are within arms reach of each other). The patio area is very spacious and we enjoyed warm bowls of oatmeal out there after sunrise on one of our mornings.
Love this place. Hope you enjoy it if you go.
