About the Property

Home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

2015 marks the inaugural year for the Hetch-Hetchy House, named after the tall grass that grows ing the high sierra valleys. The red exterior opens to colorful interior and brand new furnishings. The Tuolumne River, babbling by just feet away, is the perfect backdrop for lounging on the covered deck and grilling up your summer time supper! ( each house has it's own BBQ)

The living area has an open floor plan allowing guests to continually enjoy each other's company while in the kitchen, dining area, or living area. The kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher.

The Hetch-Hetchy House sleeps 6 people. There are 2 bedrooms, with queen size beds, and the sofa in the living room pulls out to a queen sized bed.

The Hetch-Hetchy House is fully equipped with central heat and air, 1 full bathroom, washer and dryer, dishwasher, flat screen TV (in the living room), and a DVD player, along with a dvd library.

We also have large gardens and lawns to play games and explore not to mention that we are in the middle of national forest so there is quite a bit of hiking that can be done right here at Spinning Wheel Yosemite. The Tuolumne river is also just a few yards away and is great for fishing and swimming.

You might not be surprised but we feel we must let you know, the internet is not a feature that we boast about out here. Being tucked away in the National Forest internet access is technically available, but it is limited, unreliable, and slow (and when we say slow we mean very slow). Basically you can check you email at our airstream business center.

So come on out, relax, read a book, watch a movie, play some games, look for the wild life and unwind at Spinning Wheel Yosemite!


Access to swimming pool 12 noon-5pm and hot tub 6:30-8:30pm.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: The Barsotti family begin vacationing at Spinning Wheel well before 1982. In 1982 when presented with the opportunity to purchase Spinning Wheel, there was no hesitation. Because of their love for the area they crafted a place where others could come and vacation as well. In 2013 Dharma and Eliote took over the property and are now the owners of Spinning Wheel Yosemite. Spinning Wheel Yosemite experienced a big forest fire in 2013 and as a result we had to rebuild this home. It's now a brand new vacation home with all the amenities of modern living while still in a beautiful forest environment.

Why the Owner Chose Groveland, CA, USA:
Unlike many other vacation properties in the area Spinning Wheel Yosemite offers a very private experience, being in the middle of national forest with no other neighbors for several miles. Each Home (there are 5 in total) is located far enough away from the other where you can feel both connected (if you are renting multiple properties) or private (if you are using one house). Many people come and enjoy staying on the property so much (hiking, BBQing, swimming, lounging by the river and pool, etc...) that they are happy to stay right here. And yes Spinning Wheel Yosemite is just a short drive to the Western entrance to Yosemite making it the perfect getaway just outside of the park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The middle fork of the Tuolumne River runs through the property and holds a special place in our hearts. In the summer it provides a wonderful place to lounge and beat the summer heat. Not to mention the great fishing! And we are very secluded so no crowds or noise from the outside world The homes have been individually crafted up to the last detail. Stones were hand selected and placed on many of the cabins and each one has a story. Much of the art within the cabins and on the property is made by one of the Barsotti's. Which helps to make Spinning Wheel Yosemite feel like a comfortable "home away from home" get away.
