Mariposa house description

'And a River Runs Through It'...The Knarly Oaks River House is a luxurious 3 bedroom, plus reading room and game room, 2.5 bath 2300 square foot house with spa. The lodging has beds to accommodate 13 people. The two story deck has a fantastic view of the 1.7 acre property with that includes the usually year around East Fork of the Chowchilla River. It is located about forty five minutes from Yosemite National Park's south entrance, and about an hour from Yosemite National Park's Arch Rock entrance. Both routes take about one and a half hours to get you to the heart of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and other Yosemite Valley attractions.

Solar powered has been installed, and appliances have been replaced with energy efficient models.

We sleep 13 comfortably. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the second upstairs bedroom. The king room, also in the top floor, has a second king size bed. Downstairs there is a basement with two sets of bunk beds (4 twin mattresses) and a double size futon. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the game room on the lower level. There are also three single air mattresses that can be used.

The top floor has two bathrooms; one with a tub and shower, the master has a shower. The bottom floor has a half bath, sink and toilet only.

The kitchen is stocked with dish, glass and flatware sets of 12. There is stoneware set and a plastic ware set (for outside use). There are pots and pans for cooking, along with a rice cooker/steamer, microwave oven, blender, hand mixer, toaster, waffle maker, coffee maker and coffee bean grinder. The refrigerator is equipped with ice and cold-water dispensers. You’ll be happy to know there is also a dishwasher.
