Conveniently located on Highway 41 and just minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance, our spacious family-friendly modern mountain home offers comfort and privacy, a unique connection to local history and even the nostalgic sounds of the nearby Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad.

Our 2800 square-foot mountain home borrows from the Swiss Chalet style using local, authentic century-old railroad trestle wood beams. The open architecture offers your extended family or friends all the living space you will need, plus the modern comforts you would expect, for that unforgettable trip to the Yosemite area.

It's best to contact us by email but you can also call and leave a message if you prefer. When checking our calendar remember that we normally need a full calendar day between groups in order to prepare the house. Enjoy your visit!

About the area

Refreshing Mountain Climate: Our unique home is nestled in the woods above the upper reaches of the Lewis Creek watershed at an elevation of nearly 5000 feet. In the summer, the climate here ranges from comfortable daytime highs that average in the upper 70's (~25 degrees Celsius), to cool evenings with average lows in the low 50's (~10 degrees Celsius). At this elevation the sun is intense all year round. There is nearly always a gentle breeze blowing during the day. There is very little or no rain during the summer months so humidity levels are very low and swimsuits air-dry quickly. Spring and early fall are the seasons of dynamic color and wetter weather. Late fall, winter and early spring are quiet seasons of incredible beauty. Along with this beauty comes the possibility of ice and snow on mountain roads and on our long private driveway. Privacy and Convenience: Our prime location puts you away from the crowds, yet close to everything Yosemite has to offer. The southern entrance to Yosemite is less than four miles up the road. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to call home. There is so much do to here that you could easily fill your day with excitement without ever entering the park itself!
