In the winter you can enjoy downhill skiing, cross country skiing, sledding and snowshoeing at nearby Badger Pass as well as ice skating under Half Dome in the Valley.

In Yosemite Valley there are year round activities including numerous hikes, waterfall gazing, rafting, biking, museums, or just enjoying the beautiful vistas from the awe inspiring Majestic (formally the Ahwanee) Hotel.

                                                              Kitchen well stocked with cooking essentials. The fireplace the perfect touch for gathering and playing games.

                                                              Very nice. Excellent place for large group. Lots of space.

                                                              Perfect Choice for a family visiting Yosemite.

                                                              Ricardo E.Pirque, Region Metropolitana, Chile

                                                              We, my wife Angélica and our two sons, with their seven children, stayed at Sumit House September, 12 to September 16. We had a Wonderful time, there was place for every one and privacy to all. The house is really a beautiful and very practical, located in a spacious place with typical Yosemite views.

                                                              The style, furnitures and everything was perfect. The only bad luck for us, was that Mariposa Grove was closed due to repairs and Glacier Point was also closed due to the fires.

                                                              I recommend this place to any family up to 13 people as we were, including children from 15 years old down to 6 years.

                                                              Thanks for all Daniel, hope to visit Yosemite again with our two daughters and their family, and we will sure select your perfect house for that occasion.

                                                              Great Family vacation

                                                              We had a group of 10 spend four nights in this spacious house. It was home base to our travels in Yosemite for 4 nights. It led to my favorite part of the trip which was relaxed family meals at the start and the end of the day. It made for rich family time and interaction. We highly recommend this venue for a large group.

                                                              Lovely comfortable house, great for a group

                                                              Good communication with owner, house well stocked with necessary items and towels. Nice porches and great area. Great to be inside the park, and Wanona a nice place.

The Mariposa Grove of giant Sequoia trees is just a few minutes drive from Wawona and offers tranquil hikes through these gentle giants!
