                      Location

                      Car: Necessary

                      In the woods, secluded and private. Amazing view of both El Capitan and Half Dome from the deck. Creek with swimming hole nearby. Hike to a waterfall about a mile away.

                      Please note Foresta is inside the park and only a few minutes from the valley. To ensure you have the experience you expect always ask about exact location of Yosemite rentals. Other homes listed under 'Yosemite National Park' can be up to a one hour drive away.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: This property has been in my family since the mid 1970s. It was only after the A-Rock fire in 1990 that we discovered that we had views of both El Capitan and Half Dome. It took us a while to rebuild but when we finished in 2006 the results were spectacular.
