This spacious four bedroom; four bathroom home has become one of the most popular luxury vacation homes in Yosemite National Park.

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

Handcrafted log ceilings and walls, carved archways, log posts, a log staircase, and carved animals complete the mountain feel. Each bedroom has it's 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 center griddle and two ovens, a sub-zero, 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 twelve. 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!
