Mariposa is a quaint historic town located 20 minutes away with a few wonderful restaurants and bars. Interesting shopping ... especially antiques and a fantastic grocery store and health food store.

              Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places on this planet and a visit there will be a life changing experience. Besides the Valley floor where most visitors go first, there are so many spots away from the crowds to explore.

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About: I am currently living in Mariposa near Yosemite. A breath taking area as many of you know. I was trained as a tradtional french chef. Some of my interests involve horseback riding, hiking, bee keeping and off roading.

              Why Mariposa:
              My father was traveling to Yosemite and made a wrong turn ... or should we say right turn. He found the area so charming that he called a real estate company and returned the following month to check out properties. He feel in love with this log cabin and the rest is history.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Located on eleven acreas this cabin gives you plenty of privacy with all the comforts and style you would expect from a modern lifestyle.
