Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Yosemite National Park:
This property has been in my family since the mid 1970s. After the A-Rock fire in 1990 destroyed the original house we were amazed to discover that we suddenly had views of both El Capitan and Half Dome. When we rebuilt in 2006 great care was taken in the design and placement of the house to take maximum advantage of the view.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is extremely rare to be able to stay in a private home within a national park with such spectacular views. There are only a handful of homes in the entire park with such a view.
