Great place to stay, quality and comfort
My family of 2 adult sons + wife & I are just back from a few days stay at this impressive cottage.
Outside it looks fairly normal, though the old farm cart and artwork in the front garden give a hint to the care and attention taken to detail. When we stepped inside we were immediately impressed. Everything is great quality and put together with flair and imagination. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms look great and proved really very comfortable. And the place was really clean. If only all rentals were as good as this!
Location was as described, about 9 miles from the facilities of Mariposa and about an hour from Yosemite valley.
And Charles met us and supported us with his knowledge and enthusiasm for Yosemite and Mariposa. This helped us park at the right places, at the right times, to make the most of the park. We were grateful for this.
Highly recommended by this family of Brits! If we make it back to Yosemite then we would book this place without hesitation.
Home away from home
From the moment that we walked in the front door we knew we'd made the right choice to stay here. Very clean, open concept and well maintained property. Charles was very helpful in all our dealing with him from where to hike to making sure the grill out back worked. His years of working for the park service really showed when asking about can't miss things to do and see in Yosemite.
If this property is available and you choose not to book you'll be sorry!!
Great lodging with all the amenities. We loved the view and the fireplace and jacuzzi. Great location with lots of privacy. House was spacious and pristine. Easy access to Yosemite National Park. We had a great time then we could easily retreat to our own space in the woods .
Thank you Bobby for your review - it was great to have you stay at the Cottage!
Spacious, pristine, lovely
As advertised, cottage was peacefully tucked away in a beautiful, quiet setting. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage was immaculately kept with great attention to detail- everything you need for a stay of any length. The hot tub was well-maintained, with dedicated spa towels to use just for it.
The master shower was amazing!

FANTASTIC stay! Highly recommend
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights for a trip to Yosemite after a couple of days in San Francisco. We really can't recommend this place enough. At first we were a little nervous about the drive in and out of the park each day, but the drive is beautiful and the cottage is more than worth it! It's private, extremely clean, has every amenity we needed and much more, and Charles is fantastic. He is a joy to talk to, and he had so many wonderful recommendations. The hot tub under the stars (so many stars!) was the perfect ending to our days in Yosemite with lots of hiking. Next time, we’ll definitely want to stay here longer and extend our trip to Yosemite. Just a heads up though – we have AT&T and we had absolutely no service at the Cottage nor any areas nearby. There also isn't WiFi which isn’t a huge issue for us, but without service, it did make it a little difficult to plans things for the next day, check into a flight, etc.
Thank you Charles for such a delightful stay! We hope to be back in the future!
Thank you Kirsten for your review - it was great to have you stay at the Cottage! WiFi Internet now available at the Cottage.
A haven of rest
What a lovely and immaculate cottage to rest and regroup after traipsing thru Yosemite Valley. The cottage is nestled on top of a hill but the road is easily accessible right off of main route 140. The kitchen was well equipped with every kitchen tool, utensils and storage wrapping we needed, the bathrooms also were nicely supplied. The beds were so comfortable which gave us the needed night rest to start each new day. We were just a half hour to Yosemite gate and very close to Mariposa where you can acquire groceries and Oakhurst was not very far. Charles, the owner, gave us abundant information to the surrounding areas, restaurants and of course his expertise on where to go in Yosemite, this was invaluable. We were able to plan with this newly acquired knowledge to our hearts content and enjoy our visit to Yosemite to the fullest.
