Royal Retreat couldn’t be better situated. Our vacation home is in Yosemite West, right by the turnoff for Glacier Point. This means you will be inside Yosemite, and central to everything the park has to offer. It sure beats long drives from outside the gates or sitting in lines for hours! The Valley floor and its breathtaking waterfalls are 12 miles away – approximately 30 minutes to the north. The Wawona area and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia Trees are even closer, less than 30 minutes away to the south. Glacier Point is another attraction not to be missed; a few minutes’ drive takes you to the turn-off, then 20-minute trip to the Point is beautiful in itself, but the views from the overlooks are truly awe-inspiring.
