Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Cheryl grew up and raised her family in Mariposa, and is the proud mother of two and grandmother of 13 grandchildren. Most of her family resides in the Mariposa area. Cheryl is well known in the community and has worked for CAL FIRE for 20+ years. Chris has always had a knack for entertaining people and was a guide for Salmon and Steelhead fishing on California's most pristine rivers. As a guide his sole mission was to give his customers a once in a lifetime experience that they would remember forever. We are approaching the vacation rental business with the same goals. We want you to have everything you need, so you don't have to worry about the little things and can focus on your vacation itself. We will be here to help you with anything you need.

Why the Owner Chose Mariposa:
This beautiful property has been in our family for many years. We built The Whispering Pines House in 2001 so that we could be close to my Grandmother. We took care of her for 11 years before her Alzheimer’s got so severe that she needed more care than we could give her. She is now in a beautiful, quiet, private home with 6 other ladies that she has fun with and is able to receive the medical attention she requires. She is still a huge part of our family and we love her dearly. Now we are choosing to share our scenic home with others and provide them with a wonderful vacation spot in our beautiful country we are proud to call home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property provides the peace and serenity of the mountains and we are thankful to call this our home. If you sit outside and just listen or look you will hear the birds singing and you might even see a deer, fox, turkey, or possibly a bear. Over the years we have seen them all. The town of Mariposa offers small town quaintness with its unique shops and local history. The surrounding areas, including Yosemite, offer many outdoor adventures and you will never get bored here if you enjoy the outdoors.
