                  In addition to being located so close to Yosemite National Park our home is only 5 miles from the Beautiful Merced River! The river is great for hiking, swimming, whitewater rafting, and picnics.

                  Seven miles in the other direction is the darling historic town of Mariposa. This quaint Gold Rush town has superb dining, shopping, wine tasting, several small breweries, great night life, and so much history!

                  Many of our guests come to visit Yosemite and are pleasantly surprised at what else the Sierra foothills have to offer.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: We have lived and worked in Yosemite for our entire lives and enjoy sharing all our knowledge about what the area has to offer. We live on site (a good distance from the rental!) and are happy to help. We love this area and are so blessed to be able to share a bit of the Sierras with our guests! Our hope is that you can enjoy our home, garden, and animals leaving your stay with lasting memories.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mariposa:
                  We originally set out to run a bed and breakfast for all the visitors to Yosemite National Park. As time has moved on, we have too. This house is just too perfect as a vacation spot not to rent it to happy families to enjoy on their way to Yosemite.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  *Private Bathrooms in each room *very easy to find, yet private *very close to Yosemite
