Newly Restored Private Yosemite Mountain Getaway On 40 Acres!

Family-friendly vacation home with water park and fitness center
From our beautiful sanctuary, follow the Wild and Scenic Merced River 40 minutes to the Yosemite National Park entrance. The charmingly historic but vibrant gold mining town of Mariposa is only 5 miles to the west. Two very friendly wild mustangs roam the property and have a barn near the parking area!
Completely remodeled in the winter of 2016 this custom owner built country cottage is situated on a bluff with open oak and pine woodland just a half mile down a graded gravel road. The year-round Little Bear Creek runs through these nearly 40 private acres of mixed evergreen and oak woodland. This property borders the 2000+ square mile Sierra National Forest. No neighbors in sight, very majestic and peaceful!
Featuring retro styling with a country feel (and high speed DSL Wi-Fi!), this lovely home includes a spacious, well-designed kitchen and a handmade concrete counter top. There are two private bedrooms one with it's own balcony and KING size bed. The bathroom has been completely redone. A cozy screened in porch, features another queen sized bed and also serves as a dining area. Spend time relaxing on one of the multiple beautiful decks and slate patios. Enjoy the spectacular beauty of sunrise and sunset while you grill and dine here.
From this mountain getaway, you can easily explore Yosemite, Mariposa Gold Country, and the Wild and Scenic Merced River. Chose from so many activities: hike Yosemite's spectacular trails, take a leisurely bike ride or float on a raft through Yosemite Valley, try hiking, backpacking or fishing in Yosemite's lovely high country, appreciate a unique shopping experience in Yosemite or Mariposa. Enjoy birding, gold-panning, or rock climbing. Closer to home, explore the Sierra National Forest on foot, on your bike or on your horse! You could also just walk around the property and hang out with the friendly resident donkey and mule! We were born and raised in the Yosemite area, and we can help you make your vacation unique and memorable.

4/5 Good

An almost perfect stay!
We ventured out to Mariposa to take our first week vacation in years. We wanted our three large (although trained and well cared for) dogs to join us, which can be a tall order. Fritz and Lindsey were kind enough to provide this perfect little rental to fit the bill. We had to text Fritz once or twice and he was very responsive. I actually met him while walking one of the dogs and he was very open, friendly, and helpful. The house is just the perfect size for two adults and our 3 dogs (along with their crates and other necessities). It would easily fit a family of 4 or 5. The mornings and evenings on either the outside or screened-in porch listening to the chatter of birds was so relaxing and I already miss it terribly. The kitchen has the essentials (except it was pretty short on knives ;) ) and the beds were clean and comfy. The property is about 10 minutes out of the charming town of Mariposa, 30 minutes from the large town of Oakhurst, and 40 minutes outside of Yosemite. There are non-yosemite hiking spots and attractions nearby as well. I have 1 complaint and 1 warning: The complaint first - the water smelled badly of sulfur. It's well water, which I don't know much about, but I suspect that played in to it. We bought bottled water to drink, but you can't do much when taking a shower or doing dishes. We worked around it, but it's pretty noticeable. The warning - Fritz will send you an email with directions to the property. USE THESE (print them), don't go by GPS. I tried to open the email too late and we had no cell signal and had to rely on the GPS. The GPS took us on a private, very un maintained road. Luckily we have a very capable AWD SUV, but in a regular sedan this may have been dangerous. The directions should take you through and past the down of Mariposa before turning on Triangle. From Mariposa, it's a very easy drive.

5/5 Excellent

Nice place and very cleaned.
It was a great place to stay, the owner was very kind and the house was comfortable. We were definitely come back.

4/5 Good

We had a lovely stay! Place was as described. So peaceful and gorgeous. I wish we had known the tap water was going to smell so strongly of sulphur (not a big deal but it was a surprise). Otherwise our stay was perfect.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing Stay Near Yosemite
A wonderfully peaceful cabin which made for a delightful visit to Yosemite. Three beautiful horses, lots of quails, woodpeckers and lizards. Definitely worth a stay.

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable and Relaxing
This was a perfect place for our group of friends. We spent part of our time in Yosemite and the other half on the property, enjoying both equally! The house has everything we needed, and I appreciated the sharpness of the knives! The wrap around deck is fantastic when it's cool enough, the screened in porch just as good when it's warm.
