Property description

The Yosemite Country Cottage is a charming, custom built home, designed with the traveler in mind. It is conveniently located near Yosemite National Park along scenic Highway 140, approximately 9 miles east of the town of Mariposa. The Country Cottage was completed in Spring 2006.

The managing owners have lived and worked in the Yosemite area for 35 years. Charles, a professional guide in Yosemite for 35 years, will be happy to provide you with a special 'Place's to Go' Trip Planning Guide to get the most out of your visit upon booking a reservation.

Beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean, the Country Cottage has three comfortable bedrooms that sleeps 4-5 all with country quilts, Berber carpeting and adjacent tiled bathrooms.
The large full amenity Kitchen is fully equipped for the gourmet cook and includes all the conveniences for the vacationing cook.


The highlight of the Living room is a large rock wall with a gas fireplace for cozy evenings. The Living room furnishings including an entertainment center with satellite TV, a surround sound home theater system, FM/DVD/CD player, and front USB and A/V jacks for easy access. The fully furnished Dining room next to the Living room affords easy access to the Kitchen.

Outside amenities include a Barbecue and private Hot Tub, ideal for relaxing and stargazing under incredible 'Dark Sky's', away from city lights. There is also a covered porch with a picnic table for outside meals and recliner chairs to relax and enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Foothills.

The Yosemite Country Cottage is just the place for families and friends looking for comfort, convenience and charm. The open floor plan is ideal for socializing and relaxing. Sitting atop a hillside on 13 acres, the Country Cottage offers privacy, quiet surroundings and fantastic views. Leave the crowds, traffic and noise behind. The Country Cottage is your ideal vacation home. Baby items (crib, highchair, etc..) are available on request.

The Country Cottage is conveniently located near Yosemite National Park and offers a variety of activities for all seasons. There is easy access to two nearby park entrances, Arch Rock Entrance Station (about 23 mi.) along the Wild and Scenic Merced River Canyon, or the South Entrance Station along Highway 41 on the way to the majestic Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.

The Historic Gold Town of Mariposa (9 miles) with the California State Mineral Exhibit and surrounding Gold Country with its quaint shops, restaurants, Wine Tasting from local Vineyards and History Museum are great to explore.
