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.

Quiet restful place
This home is tucked away in the foothills with easy access to Mariposa, hiking and fishing. It was obvious to me that the hosts were thoughtful about the amenities included throughout the home. The seating was ample and varied. The beds were very comfortable. The AC units were efficient and effective! The owners were prompt to reply and helpful with any questions or issues that arose. There were just a few downsides to this property. 1. The water flow in the bathroom sink was very minimal and it never warmed up, it was lukewarm at best. 2. The water does have a slightly sulfuric odor so we bought a couple large bottles of water for cooking, making tea and coffee. 3. The carpet flashing from the hallway to the master bedroom need repair. There are screws poking up which one could trip on or injure themselves on if walking barefoot. 4. Finally, there were no lights on at the property when we arrived late at night except for a few solar powered landscape step lights. Given that this property is located in a remote location it would have been more appropriate and welcoming if a few house lights were on inside and out.

Bed are comfortable, but place has some issues
Pretty location, loved the horses and had comfortable beds. But.... the house has a real problem with spiders and their webs all over, killed about 20 in the house. We removed an 8" lizard from the master bedroom and there's mice in the kitchen eating our food. We were really wishing it would have be better.
