Bear Valley house description

Conveniently located off Highway 49 in California's Gold Country, on a historic parcel known as Trabucco Gardens.

During the Gold Rush days, Trabucco Gardens was a parcel of land cultivated as a vegetable garden. The historic rock walls on property mark the perimeter where the garden once grew.

Located on 17 private acres, you with enjoy a grand opportunity to stargaze in privacy under dark skies. We provide quality telescopes as part of your rental. Views of galaxies and nebulae are yours to behold. And wildlife sighting are not uncommon here.

If you own a horse, we are horse-ready with trail guides and corrals available on property as an optional service. Please inquire at: WWW.TRABUCCOGARDENTRAILS.COM for more information.

The house, newly constructed in 2007, is well appointed and available year round. We provide housekeeping service (not daily maid service) before your stay. Courtesy towels, coffee, tea, cocoa, popcorn, and guest soap are provided to welcome you on the day you arrive.

Go mining in the INFINITE FRONTIER above at Trabucco Gardens - Gold Country's first stargazing retreat.

                          Trabucco Gardens is 10 Miles North of Mariposa, on Highway 49. We are approximately 45 minutes away from the west entrance of Yosemite, which is accessed via Highway 140 in Mariposa. Trabucco Gardens is located in the Sierra foothills of Mariposa County.

                          The area is very rural, there are no other dwellings visible from the house, and wildlife sightings can be seen quite frequently. There are many ghost towns in nearby communities such as Mount Bullion and Hornitos to explore, and Mariposa is home to museums and exhibits featuring Gold Rush history and nostalgia.
