Mariposa house description

This recently remodeled rental is not only an ideal base camp for visiting Yosemite – located about 45 minutes to an hour from two Yosemite gates – but is a perfect spot to get away from it all. Surrounded by majestic oaks and mountain views, Bootjack Hideaway is tucked away on nearly 11 acres (you have to look hard to see your neighbors). But you won't have to bounce around on miles of dirt road to get here (only a few minutes worth ). It's only 7 minutes by car to the town of Mariposa. Enjoy the views off the back porch, from the spacious hot tub, from your bedroom, or framed in French double doors from the great room inside. The back lawn is perfect for throwing a Frisbee, ball, or playing badminton. And everywhere outside is fantastic for stargazing.

The kitchen – complete with gas stove - opens to the dining and entertainment areas so you can cook while easily chatting with family or friends. Music lovers will appreciate streaming their music to the Bose while hanging out inside or on the patio. The grill outside is also an excellent option for summer nights.

As a guest of Bootjack Hideaway, you’ll have access to the garden and a selection of herbs. Ginger Mint mojito anyone? This year the garden is stocked with peas and lettuces, chard, a few tomatoes (hopefully!), and spinach to name a few.

Of course you’ll have free WiFi, as well as access to Netflix, and Hulu Plus on the flat screen plus a selection of Wii games and DVDs (games and DVDs are primarily geared toward children.)

The house accommodates up to 8 people. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms total, the master suite has an attached sitting room with a full size futon. The bed in the master is a queen, and the beds in the two upstairs bedrooms are a queen and twin trundle (that’s a twin bed with a pull-out bed underneath). The larger upstairs bedroom (with the queen bed) also has an attached sun room from which to enjoy an expansive view of the mountains and trees.

If you would NOT like a complimentary bottle of local wine during your visit, please request it be omitted. Otherwise, please request your preference – red or white.

A few things to note: the owner doesn’t use harsh chemicals or pesticides to maintain her home and yard, which means a better environment for all of us, but can also mean seeing the occasional spider. She also uses natural means whenever possible to maintain the hot tub. Finally, it’s recommended you use the shower in the master bathroom and not the soaking tub unless you appreciate a cool soak. Hot soaking is best done in the hot tub outside, or in the tub in the upstairs bathroom.

This is a beautiful place, truly. And it's hard to convey that in words here. I'm blessed to live here most of the year and I invite you to enjoy it. The place is ideal for small groups or families that want to enjoy their lodging - enjoy the outdoors without leaving 'home.' Please contact me with any questions and I hope you'll treasure this place as much as I do.
