Why Kathleen Pfeffer chose Yosemite Area

This property is designed so nicely nestled in the oaks with nature. Deer often roaming, relaxing and resting in the meadow below the deck.

What makes this house unique

Our secluded oak retreat is incredible for enjoying sunsets, star gazing, wild flowers and bird watching all from the comfort of the deck, hot tub, or large windows in the living-room.

This custom home was designed by a local designer with lots of special details. The open beam ceiling, gable windows and skylights allows the home to feel light and spacious.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect location for our visit to Yosemite. It was quiet and clean. The kitchen was furnished with all you could possibly need. I wish we could have stayed longer. The little town of Mariposa is close and had very good restaurants and a nice grocery. Kathleen brought another chair for the deck and a new propane tank while we were there.

Relaxing getaway, close to Yosemite

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We wanted to be close to El Portal entry. Unfortunately the rock slide forced us to take a long drive to other entrance so we stayed in the second day and visited Mariposa. I think that was better than if we had been able to do our original plan! Very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed watching the flock of turkeys.

Terrific home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was phenomenal! The home has everything you'd need to cook, if you choose (there is a nice grocery in town to shop). But the town has plenty of restaurant options as well! The beds are nice after a day of hiking and the hot tub is a fantastic way to relax for the evening! I'd highly recommend!

Gorgeous property that you will surely love.

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the home beautiful and clean, the owners Kathleen & Alex surely make you feel like you are at home! We are fan sleepers and were obviously from out of the area visiting. I had reached out to ask if we by chance had just missed a fan at the home. Instead of saying no, Kathleen come on her own time and dropped a fan off for us to use during our stay! Incredible, kind people. We would certainly recommend the property to others and would love to come back again some day.

Thank you Kathleen & Alex.
