About the Property

A 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 2 Fireplaces Multilevel Red Cedar Home Set In The Forest

Located inside Yosemite National Park within walking distance to the Merced River, The Summit House is a multi-story mountain home constructed with western red cedar inside and out. Surrounded by 3 secluded decks, our home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a spacious 2 story living room with trestle beams, separate dining room, large kitchen, loft den and game room with a bumper pool table. The upstairs bedrooms each have a king size bed, while the lower bedrooms each have 2 twin beds. In addition, both the loft and game room have queen size sleeper sofa beds. The house sleeps up to 13 people. There are 2 massive river rock fireplaces, a laundry room with washer and dryer, direct TV, and wifi. All kitchen utensils, dishes, towels, and sheets are provided. Barbeque equipment is also provided for the large rear deck which is situated next to the forest where you can enjoy deer, raccoons, squirrels and birds as they parade by our home.
The Summit House is located in the charming town of Wawona, 6 miles inside Yosemite National Park. The Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias is only 15 minutes away and is open all year. We are close to the Merced River where you can fish and swim in the summer as well as sunbathe on the glistening flat rocks in the rushing river. You can also enjoy a hike to Chilnualna Falls and the swinging bridge or stroll the Meadow Loop Trail. There is fine dining at the historic Wawona Hotel, as well as horseback riding, a 9 hole golf course, Ranger walks and talks and a fascinating old Pioneer Center.
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 Ahwanee Hotel. Yosemite is beautiful in all seasons and each season has its own special pleasures!
