Hummingbird Raven is in the park, but outside the bustle of Yosemite Valley so it is quiet and peaceful. This house is ideal for groups of family and friends who want a nice house to come back to after a long day of adventure.
This main living area of the house - kitchen, dining area, living room, and master bedroom is downstairs and reached by a spiral staircase. Note: the spiral staircase may not be suitable for elderly people and small children. Upstairs is one bedroom with a queen-size bed, one bedroom with two bunk beds, and a study with a fold-out sofa bed that sleeps two. We have a beautiful large deck with a barbecue and great view of the forest. We have a DVD player and large DVD library in the living room.
Hummingbird Pines House can sleep a maximum of 8 - 10 people.
Yosemite West is inside the Park boundaries, so it's a perfect location to enjoy Yosemite (20 minutes to Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point, and close to various trailheads). It has the advantage of being very close to the Badger Pass ski area, and being at a higher elevation than the Valley, which keeps the temperatures more comfortable in the summer months.
Please note that we do not have wifi or satellite TV, because trees around the house block satellite reception from the South sky. There is no cell phone reception in Yosemite West (there is spotty cell reception in Yosemite Valley).
Minimum age of renter signing contract: 25.
Full kitchen, deck with barbecue, extensive DVD library.
