Property description

Enjoy all the comforts of home and the majesty of Yosemite National Park in a beautifully furnished home that sleeps up to 8. Our cabin situated on a hillside is wrapped by a large redwood deck that runs from the kitchen door to the front of the cabin.

Our tastefully decorated cabin is located 'inside' the park, twenty two miles from the valley floor. The cabin is located on the south side of the park very near the historic Wawona Hotel and golf course. The south side of the park has it's own unique beauty with less of the crowds.
You can hike along riverside trails, take a dip in a swimming hole in the Merced River, marvel at the giant Sequoia trees, ski at Badger Pass, visit the famous Yosemite Valley just a 40 minute drive away or just relax by a crackling fire. A wonderful destination for several couples, a family of 6-8 or two families of 4

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: Eric and Anne Kastner live in Palo Alto, California. Eric is a native of California and Anne migrated here in 1980. They married 15 years ago and have 5 children between them. The youngest child is 12 and the oldest 38. Eric grew up near Yosemite National Park and both love the outdoors, animals and have a passion for the environment Anne is a former retail executive turned part time consultant and Eric runs his own law firm.

Why Yosemite National Park:
Eric grew up near Yosemite National Park and visited there often. Both his parents are also from that area. We wanted a spot that we could reach by car that offered both mountains and water. We never dreamed we would be lucky enough to own a home in Yosemite National Park

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Merced River is a beautiful river fed by the Sierra snow melt in the spring and summer. We spend many days lounging by the river, using rafts to play in the gentle rapids and cool off in the crystal clear water. Our home is located on the south side of the Park and 45 minutes from the Valley. It is rarely crowded in Wawona but still offers the beauty and hiking of the famous Yosemite Valley. The Valley a 'must see' for new visitors is easy to visit. It is a wonderful day trip with lots to do and enjoy
