Property description

This beautiful home is centrally located within Yosemite National Park. Glacier Point is 10 miles from the home, Yosemite Valley is 13 miles away and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias is approx. 30 minutes away. In the winter, Badger Pass Ski Area is a short 10 miles away. You can quickly and easily access the many day hiking opportunities off of the Glacier Point Road from this location. Catch a sunset from the top of Sentinel Dome with your picnic and wine or rise early and see the sun rise from the spectacular Taft Point, an easy 1 and a half mile hike in from the Glacier Point Road. This home is a duplex, the upstairs is a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit and the lower unit is occupied by a local couple. The kitchen of this home is fully equipped for cooking your meals and the upstairs sunny deck has a gas grill for barbeques. This quiet location offers a peaceful respite from the rest of the park visitors. There are many old logging roads in this community for mountain bikers and an historic restored fire lookout nearby for a nice evening walk.
The driveway to this home has a short steep approach and is narrow. You must be able to back up when exiting but if you go slow it is quite doable.

Keywords: Vacation rental home, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, full kitchen, BBQ on deck, Internet via Satellite dish bandwidth limit of 300 mg per day. This is adequate for checking emails and internet searches, no audio or video streaming is possible. Information will be sent upon booking.
