Make Yourself at Home in Your High Sierra Vacation Rental

High Sierra country in California is the perfect place to escape to when you want to get away from it all. While this is a popular winter skiing destination, it also is a great destination to explore during the warmer months of the year. Regardless of the time of the year it is when you visit this area in eastern central California, you will feel right at home when you stay in your High Sierra vacation home. Many of these homes and condos have great mountain views, a convenient location to top attractions and ski areas, ski storage, a deck or patio, a hot tub, a fireplace and other amenities that will help you to feel more comfortable during your vacation.

Outdoor Recreation

From your Kirkwood vacation home, you will be close to some of the top ski destinations in the region. This includes the Mammoth Mountain ski area and the June Mountain ski area where you can ski and snowboard. There are also other outdoor activities for other times of the year, such as camping, hiking, fishing, sightseeing, viewing wildlife and more. This is an area of the state where you can truly get back in touch with nature, but your High Sierra vacation home enables you to enjoy creature comforts while you do so.

Attractions

While you may spend ample time outdoors enjoying the ski resorts, hiking areas and more while you stay in your Sutter Creek vacation home, you also can explore other local attractions to get to know more about the area. The Mammoth Brewing Company is a popular venue to explore, and it gives you the chance to sample local brew while relaxing after a fun day outdoors. The Mammoth Adventure Center has a gondola ride that gives you exceptional views of the local landscape. You can also visit Hot Creek, which is a fish hatchery that enables you to learn more about the different species in the area.

Shopping

Spending time outdoors with nature may occur most of your vacation schedule, but you will have plenty of free time to enjoy shopping as well. Shopping in the High Sierra area is focused largely on the popular Mammoth Lakes area, although there are small retail shops and boutiques in most of the towns in the High Sierra region. In Mammoth Lakes, you will find the Mammoth Luxury Outlets, which is home to dozens of brand name stores that you know and love. There is also the Minaret Village Shopping Center, which has many additional stores for you to explore.

Weather

The elevation in the High Sierra region varies based on where you are at, but most of the area has a dry-summer humid continental climate. This type of climate is known for having warm, dry summers with long winters and ample snowfall. In fact, the area regularly receives more than 200 inches of snowfall per year, and some areas receive considerably more than this. Depending on the elevation, you can expect average highs ranging from the 30s to the 70s throughout the year. Average lows may range from the teens to the 40s depending on the season and the elevation.

How to Get There

The High Sierra region is removed from the hustle and bustle of urban areas, so it can be a bit more challenging to get to than other areas. One option is to fly into the San Francisco area and to rent a car. By car, you can travel from San Francisco eastward along Interstate 9, and you can then connect to Highway 120. This highway takes you the rest of the way into the High Sierra area, and you can explore it at your leisure. Buses also travel into the area, giving you another option to consider.

We cannot wait to return to both Yosemite and this suite!
