Mariposa house description
Note: Unlike many other area rentals WE CHARGE THE SAME LOW PRICE FOR UP TO 8 PEOPLE. Many rentals charge more for each additional person beyond a base of 2-4 people. We do not.

LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS, 2 or fewer days prior to stay, take 15% off rates shown! (Call or email an inquiry to request the additional discount.)
AUTUMN is a wonderful time to hike in Yosemite! The gorgeous fall colors last for months. Cooler comfortable weather and smaller crowds make this time of year special and invigorating! It's our favorite time to hike Yosemite!
Enjoy breathtaking views of the Sierra foothills from our BUTTERFLY RIDGE VACATION HOME at 3200 ft. above sea level! This comfortable well-maintained 1800 sq. ft. home has 2 BR/2BA and a well equipped kitchen. We can accommodate a party of 8 people comfortably with one queen size bed, 2 double beds, a queen-size sleeper couch and even an optional queen-size inflatable mattress. Central forced-air heating and air conditioning throughout. A paved road and driveway lead to this quiet, private and nicely landscaped 5 acre lot. You'll have easy access to Hwy. 140, only 2.5 miles away. From there you can choose to go northeast to Yosemite National Park (only 29 miles from the home) or go southwest to historic Mariposa (7 miles from the home) for shopping, dining, groceries, interesting museums and the picturesque 160 yr. old Mariposa County courthouse, the oldest continually operated court house west of Missouri. (tours available)
Your family will never be bored here. We have a professional-grade 9 foot pool table in the game room. The living room has a designated game table supplied with lots of board games, playing cards and poker chips. We have a collection of children's books and books about Yosemite Park and local hiking trails. You can enjoy Playstation 2 video gaming on our 52 inch LCD TV, or watch satellite TV and crystal clear blu-ray movies in high definition. Included among the blu-rays are three acclaimed BBC Earth sets: Planet Earth (4 discs), Human Planet (3 discs) and Life (4 discs). These are magnificent and informative documentaries depicting the wonders of our planet and are great for family viewing. Brochures, maps and books about the area provide a way to plan your stay. Things to see and do in the area include dozens of incredibly scenic places and hikes in Yosemite Park, rafting on the Merced River, swimming, fishing, mountain biking or walking along the Merced River at Briceberg, swimming and boating at Bass Lake or Lake McSwain, and interesting walks and hikes in the Mariposa area. Mariposa also hosts concerts in the Art Park every summer weekend and has several art galleries. The county park is a great place for families to visit, providing a large swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, picnic areas, a skateboard park and a concert venue.
This quiet property is far away from city lights and secluded from neighbors. On moonless nights, you can clearly see the milky way spanning the sky - something that you will never see under the bright city lights. It is a mesmerizing moment that your family will never forget. We also have mature grape vines and fruit trees in our backyard. Feel free to pick and eat from them when you visit us in the right seasons! (The grapes are ripe in August.)
Natural foliage on this hillside property creates habitat for deer families, squirrels, rabbits and dozens of bird species including humming birds. The back yard is chain link fenced to keep the deer away from the grape vines.
Linens, bedding, towels, paper goods, trash bags, dish washing and dishwasher soap and hand soap are all provided. The kitchen is fully equipped, with attention to detail, and has everything you'll need to prepare and serve your meals. The brand new dining table seats 8 in comfortable ergonomic padded chairs.
Guests are welcome to park in the attached garage. There are parking spaces for a total of 3 vehicles at the house, including the garage. A brand new crib and high chair are stored in a closet and are put out for guest use upon request. There are 2 mountain bikes in the garage that guests are welcome to use.
