The Z's Retreat is our chance to share our wonderful historic town of Mariposa and our majestic 'backyard' which is Yosemite National Park. We were fortunate enough to find a house in town and began our project. We are very excited about sharing our small historic town with travelers! And of course our beautiful 'backyard'! Our home is fully furnished with a Queen bed in one bedroom and a Daybed with a trundle (two twins) in the second bedroom. The bathroom features a tub/shower combo and a pedestal sink. The living room has comfy couches and a faux fireplace to give it that cozy feeling. The kitchen is complete with a stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender, toaster, pots/pans, dishes/utensils, some spices and paper products. We provide a stack washer/dryer. There is a covered carport and ample parking. The backyard is fenced and we are animal friendly...as long as your animal is friendly! The best part is a huge back deck to BBQ & picnic on in the evenings or enjoy your morning coffee on! The neighborhood is very quiet, so this is not the place for loud! It is the perfect place to come 'home' to after a day in Yosemite. But, please take the time to enjoy our town! The Visitors Center is is located at 5158 Hwy. 140. You can go to the website for info on local events as well as planning a trip to Yosemite. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the house.

About the owner: We grew up in the central valley in the small farming community of Chowchilla, Ca. We were married in Aug. of 1982 and started our family in 1987. We now have 3 wonderful children. We decided to relocate to the mountains in 1999. We found Mariposa by chance and fell in love with the area and decided to raise our kids here. Two of our kids are off on their own adventures after graduating college and we have added two other wonderful people to our family. Our third child is finishing High School in 2015. We are very excited to provide a place for families to visit our wonderful historic little town as well as the vast beauty that is Yosemite National Park. Our photo is a rare shot on Christmas Day at Glacier Point when there was no snow! Dec.25, 2011. Our son Alec with Rebekah, Our daughter Ashlynn, Our daughter Aubriana with James, and us, Cindy & John.
Why the Owner Chose Mariposa: To own a house in town was a rare opportunity to make our dreams of having a vacation rental come true. This house is located in the heart of Historic Mariposa with all its history and culture. A quiet neighborhood is a perfect retreat after being in Yosemite all day. Walk around town or just relax and enjoy the large deck in the back...your choice. Or spend a day exploring right here in Mariposa!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Close to Yosemite! Quiet, secluded, nice views over rooftops, older charm, which makes it feel comfy. Makes you go back in time just a little. Very close to many historic places. Check with our visitors center for all the local happenings. Lots of summer music at the Art Park, yearly events such as Butterfly Days, Mariposa County Fair, Carter Ranch Music Festival, Blazin' Hog BBQ and Zydeco Festival, Summer Fest (Suds and Sausage), Tomato Fest, too many to mention!
