Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family took a vacation to yosemite and we stayed at the summit house. When i seen the pictures the house looked ok but was big enough for our whole family. When we arrived the home was actually amazing! It was bigger than the pictures showed! We enjoyed every bit of the home and our trip! We would love to come back to the summit house! They home had everything u need!

Summit House - early April 2015

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, cedar-paneled 4-bedroom + loft vacation home IN Yosemite National Park, near Wawona Hotel, with huge wood burning stone fireplace in multilevel living area and smaller fireplace in lower level family/game room, which has bumper-pool table. Well- outfitted kitchen made this house ideal for our family vacation.

Amazing home! Great place to stay...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited the Summit House for my Dad's 63rd birthday. We had an amazing time. There were a total of 12 people. The home is very spaceous & comfortable! It's about 25 miles away from the Valley Floor. I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in having a great time with family or friends. Can't wait to go back and stay again!

Family Christimas Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Multiple generation family of 10 (6 adults, 2 teens and 2 kids) got together for week of Christmas to enjoy family time away from hustle and bustle. Plenty of private and communal space to enjoy each other without stepping on each other's toes! We came from San Diego and Monterey counties, and first time in the park for the kids. We had a great time enjoying the park during the slower, winter season and had daily outdoor excursions visiting the valley floor, dining at the Ahwahnee Lodge, ice skating, hiking near Wawona Lodge, picnic by the river, and snow sledding at Badger Pass on Christmas morning! We enjoyed quiet reading and puzzle time by the fireside, and tplaying games at night. The house was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals, including 2 refrigerators to store all the food we brought and a large dining table that could fit all 10 of us for dining together. We would highly recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit Yosemite and have a tranquil place to retire to away from the crowds.

Summit House

  • 4 of 5

We love this house and it was perfect for our family for Thanksgiving.We

had a wonderful time. I did leave a note for the property manager on some

things we found when we arrived that needed to be fixed. This is the second

time I have been here and will return again.

Ganny's big "0" Birthday

  • 5 of 5

Brought the family (12people and 2 infants) together to celebrate Ann's 70th birthday. The Summit house was great. We had privacy for each of the 4 family units but plenty of communal areas to enjoy each other. We came from Boston Ma, Orlando Fl, Pasadena Ca and San Francisco so most of us had not been in the park before. The house was completely equipped and had everything you would possibly need. The owner was very helpful and went out of his way to insure we had a great vacation.

Would recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit Yosimite.

Wawona is a peaceful village inside the park just a short drive from the famed Yosemite Valley, Badger Pass ski area and Glacier Point. Near the historic Wawona Hotel is the old pioneer village which features rustic homes and pioneer activities. Here you can horseback ride, swim, hike or enjoy a square dance in the old barn. The charming 9 hole golf course allows you to commune with nature while playing golf. Beautiful swimming holes on the nearby south fork of the Merced River offer hours of joy for young and old alike. The Mariposa Grove of giant Sequoia trees is just a few minutes drive from Wawona and offers tranquil hikes through these gentle giants!
