**********************

*** Forest Setting - Beautiful Sunsets - Glorious Starry Night Skies ***
*** Living room, dining area and kitchen are the heart of this house and provide an open and bright atmosphere. Large deck surrounded by forest! Tree-top views and long vistas out to the horizon!

-- SO MUCH MORE THAN A MOUNTAIN CABIN!
-- INSIDE the Entrance Gates of Yosemite! Avoid long waiting lines at the gates during peak season.
-- Only 12 miles to Yosemite Valley, 7 miles to Badger Pass, 16 miles to Glacier Point, 20 miles to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias
-- No 100 degree heat in summer ... like lodgings found at lower elevations.
-- Avoid commuting in and out of the park ... this location is through the gates and miles INSIDE the park -- (unlike those labeled **near** Yosemite, or **close to Yosemite** such as in Groveland, Mariposa, El Portal, Fish Camp, etc.)

-- Away from the Summer Crowds!
-- Close to Badger Pass Ski Area
-- Treetop Views and Stairs: there are 53 stairs from the parking area to the top floor where treetop views and glorious sunsets await you! Stargazing at its best!
-- Please note that you are sharing the common spaces with The RED DOOR apt. rental unit (shared areas are parking area and outside stairway)

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 Giant Redwoods - each less than a 25 to 35 minutes drive from the house!

This private residence was built 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, very bright, and furnished for comfort, this unit (actually, the main house) offers that special feeling of home-away-from-home.

*** THE SUNSET HOUSE *** (on the top floor): one of the two units at this property, has two bedrooms/1.5 baths, this is a large unit ( 1350 sq. ft.) with a 575 sq. ft. deck. The living room is spacious, bright-with lots of windows, long views to the Western horizon, as well as forest views everywhere else. A fireplace for winter nights, jetted tub in the bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a very large deck with plenty of deck furniture with a gas grill for BBQ's. Sleeps 2-5 guests.

*** Check-in time: after 4pm
*** Check out time: by 11am

INTERNET and CELL PHONES: due to the mountainous region and our unique and heavily forested location, we haven't been able to access any satellite signals at this time. Cell phones in Yosemite have very spotty reception, if any at all, except for the Yosemite Valley area -- consider yourself ** disconnected ** while you are staying at this property.

*** Guests must be able to climb several flights of stairs to access the 2 units in this property.

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

*** Traveling to CARMEL/MONTEREY area? Let us recommend a new studio listing #399908 -- ideal for one couple, a small space w/ stylish decor, reasonable rates, pet friendly, and located in the heart of the Carmel Woods area, in Carmel.
_______________________

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

*** 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 large decks!

Yosemite offers world-famous vistas 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, and special programs designed for families and children.

*** Enjoy Yosemite's beauty and the conveniences offered by a vacation house inside the park ... you won't leave disappointed!
