**********************
-- The Red Door apartment is part of a duplex property; because this is the mid-level unit, you may hear footsteps and other sounds of occupancy coming from the unit above, please expect this. Soundproofing has been applied to address this matter.

-- For more information about our accommodations, availability, rates, policies, guest comments, photo album, links and more, please visit our website.

Yosemite's splendors are within easy driving distance: the three most popular visitors' destination areas within the park are: Yosemite Valley floor, spectacular Glacier Point and Wawona and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Redwoods - each less than a 25 to 30 minute drive from the house!

This private residence was built in 1999 to take full advantage of the unobstructed westerly views ... No neighbors in sight when you look out towards the western horizon and nothing between you and glorious sunsets and millions of stars.

-- Clean, bright, and furnished for comfort, this unit offers that special feeling of home-away-from-home.

*** THE RED DOOR Apt *** (on the mid-level floor): one of the two units at this property, is a one bedroom/one bath unit (575 sq. ft.) plus a 375 sq. ft. deck. It has lots of windows, long views to the Western horizon as well as forest views everywhere else. A gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, bath with shower over tub, and a sunny deck with plenty of deck furniture and a gas grill for BBQ's.

***INTERNET and CELL PHONES: unfortunately, due to the mountainous region and our unique and heavily forested location, we are unable to access any satellite signal at this time. Cell phones in Yosemite have very spotty reception, if any at all, except for the Yosemite Valley area -- a cell signal booster we just installed may provide limited connectivity but consider yourself ** disconnected ** while you are staying at this property.

*** There is no cable TV -- bring your favorite DVDs
*** There is no A/C -- it would rarely be needed (at our elevation the night temperature goes down significantly).
*** A land-line telephone with local service is included and you may use your calling card.
*** 4-night stays include use of the laundry appliances.
*** Guests must be able to climb several flights of stairs to access the 2 units in this property.
*** This is a duplex property; this unit shares the common spaces with our larger rental unit -- shared areas are the parking area and outside stairway.
*** Holiday periods may require 4 or 5-night stays.
_______________________

*** OUR GUESTS: Our vacation home has been enjoyed by couples on their honeymoon, and many anniversaries, several **I'll be asking her hand** events, and many book lovers, romantic stargazers, painters and photographers.

** TIOGA PASS (Hwy 120) closes early each winter due to snow - please check before planning your traveling route.

*** Activities in the park are many: fishing, hiking, rock climbing, biking, birdwatching and much more. More active folks can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, river rafting, and horseback riding to name a few.

*** This is a place away from the crowded Yosemite Valley floor, a place for evening relaxation: sit back and enjoy the wind whispering through the cedars, pines and dogwoods; stargazers can marvel at the clear night skies with millions of stars while listening to the sounds of the forest from the deck!

Yosemite offers world-famous scenic views and a variety of activities for everyone, year around. A few examples of the many organized activities offered are: free art classes (watercolor, sketching & drawing, etc.), morning photography walks, a Valley Birdwalk, special programs designed for families and children, and so much more.

*** Enjoy Yosemite's beauty ... and the conveniences offered by a vacation house inside the park ... you will be amazed!
