El Capitan is Yosemite's splendour! This spacious four bedrooms; four-bathroom home has become one of the most popular luxury vacation homes in Yosemite National Park.

El Capitan sleeps up to 12 guests and has added amenities such as jetted tubs in two of the bathrooms, and gas fireplaces in 2 of the master suites. There is large, flat-screened satellite TV in the Great Room and in all of the bedrooms and wireless internet access.

Handcrafted log ceilings and walls, carved archways, log posts, a log staircase, and carved animals complete the mountain feel. Each bedroom has its own detailed theme. All bathroom amenities are upgraded. The home has a washer and dryer.

The great room has a large rock fireplace (firewood provided in season) and plenty of comfortable seating for family gatherings. The kitchen boasts a 48" American gas range with a center griddle and two ovens, a SubZero, side by side refrigerator/freezer large enough to accommodate party trays, a dishwasher, and a granite-topped serving island, (caterers love this kitchen)!

The dining area has a copper-topped dining room table that seats 12. The game room has a pool table and a beautifully made armoire containing a murphy bed. The beautiful, private deck has a very large picnic table and a built-in gas grill. The entrance and downstairs are wheelchair accessible. We call this the 'Oh My Gosh' home!

Wawona, Sierra Nevada

Nestled just four miles inside the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park is the charming and historic town of Wawona. Located at the base of Chilnualna Falls (the second highest vertical drop waterfall in Yosemite), and home to the principal trailheads into the southern Yosemite wilderness, Wawona is also the closest town to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.

Wawona has the feel of a small town but is bustling with activity! Over 160 residents, including Yosemite Park employees, live in Wawona and can be seen gathering at the town's community center, playing a pick up game of basketball at the elementary school, jogging on one of the many picturesque trails or simply walking their dogs and baby strollers through the winding residential streets. The historic Wawona Swinging Bridge boasts the best natural water slide in the Park! The history village is filled with docents, stagecoach rides, horseback rides, and barn dances in the summer season and the Wawona Meadow Loop offers year round riparian meadow wildlife viewing.

Wawona was known to the local Native American Miwok in their language as Pallachun (a good place to stay). It is located entirely within Yosemite National Park (it preceded the founding of the park as a national recreation area), and is located on the South fork of the wild and scenic Merced River, on the main highway (State Route 41) from Fresno to Yosemite Valley.

Galen Clark, who helped gain preservation legislation for Mariposa Grove and what later became part of Yosemite National Park, occupied the Wawona area in 1855 and established a tourist rest and modest ranch which he later sold and made into a hotel and resort property (the Wawona Hotel). The Wawona post office was established in 1878 and was originally called Clark's Station.
