For his protection from and to gain influence with local tribes, Savage married several Indian women. After Savage died, one of his Indian widows guided John Hite, a poor prospector, up the South Fork of the Merced to find gold that made Hite a millionaire.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

If you plan to visit Yosemite with a large group this is the place to stay. Located just a 15 minute drive from the park. Great place to unwind after a long day of hiking. The master suite is amazing. A very unique house built on the mountain (literally). Highly recommend!!!

Great place to stay not too far from the valley! Right on the Merced River- huge house!

  • 4 of 5

This house will sleep a lot of people! Great for kids and extended families. Kitchen with spices and can cook your meals because Valley floor prices are expensive! A/c works fabulous! There are hairdryers in the bathrooms that weren’t mentioned and the beds are good! My only recommendation is they put fitted sheets on the bigger beds and not a flat sheet but that was it! There is a pool you can use 3 miles up the road where you check in. I would stay here again!

Beautiful Location

  • 3 of 5

The house has an awesome location - with the Merced river running just behind it. It is just about 20 minutes drive from the Yosemite west entrance. Needs a little more care and maintenance though.

Amazing Location

Rivers End has a brilliant overlook of the river. Couldn't be better! The house was huge and very well appointed. This is definitely a go-back-to rental.
