The Yosemite Country Cottage, winner of the TripAdvisor/FlipKey Certificate of Excellence award, 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 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.
