The cozy River House is a 2300 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath cabin with a high end spa, game room, that has beds for 15 people, including inside and outside dining for 15, on a secluded 1.7 acre lot, 45 minutes to The South Entrance into Yosemite National Park. The house has an automatic 20 kW backup generator to keep the power on when the grid is down.

The space
The 1.7 acre property includes the year around East Fork of the Chowchilla River. It is located about forty five minutes from Yosemite National Park's south entrance, and about an hour from Yosemite National Park's Arch Rock entrance. Both routes take about one and a half hours to get you to the heart of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and other Yosemite Valley attractions.

Solar powered has been installed, and appliances have been replaced with energy efficient models.

We sleep 15 comfortably. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the second upstairs bedroom. The quiet reading room, also in the top floor, has a second king size bed. Downstairs there is a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds (4 twin mattresses), 2 additional twin mattresses, and a double size futon. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the game room on the lower level. Air mattresses can also be supplied.

The top floor has two bathrooms; one with a tub and shower, the master has a shower. The bottom floor has a half bath, sink and toilet only.

The kitchen is stocked with dish, glass and 2 flatware sets of 12 each. There is stoneware set and a plastic ware set (for outside use). There are pots and pans for cooking, along with a rice cooker/steamer, microwave oven, blender, hand mixer, toaster, waffle maker, coffee maker and coffee bean grinder. The refrigerator is equipped with ice and cold-water dispensers. You’ll be happy to know there is also a dishwasher.
