About the property

Brand new custom home with 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 lofts

Escape the crowds of Yosemite and stay at the OakStone House. Located 10 minutes from the charming town of Mariposa and 45 minutes from the majesty of Yosemite National Park, it is the perfect location for your vacation in the Sierra.

The OakStone House was completed in 2013. Sitting on 5 private acres and 2400 sq. ft in size, it has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and can sleep 8 people.


The Great Room has ample space to fit your group very comfortably. It has a large sectional couch and recliner chair, wood burning stove, a 48' HDTV and an upstairs loft. Satellite and WiFi are included. The loft is the kid's corner with games, puzzles, books and toys as well as a futon and papasan chair for extra sleeping and hanging out.

Indulge your inner Julia Child in the fully equipped kitchen and adjoining dining area, or relax with a snack at the 6 ft butcher block island.

The laundry room includes a HE washer, dryer, an extra sink and another full refrigerator. There is also an outdoor line to hang your clothes in the fresh mountain air.


All 3 bedrooms are located on the other side of the house, separated by a door away from the main living area. They each have new, comfortable beds and their own heating/cooling units.

The master bedroom has a solid wood Calking bed with high quality linens and it's own private access to the backyard and spa. The attached bathroom includes a pedestal tub and separate shower, double vanity with granite countertops and a water closet.

Both the second & third bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and lofts. The kids bedroom has a solid wood twin over full size bunk bed with a twin size trundle underneath. The other bedroom has a very comfortable queen iron bed and an antique dresser.


Enjoy the beautiful covered patio outside the Great Room. Play a game of horseshoes, darts or sit on the deck down by the seasonal creek and revel in the glorious views of granite outcroppings, towering oaks, manzanitas, elderberry, and wildflowers.

Refresh yourself in a private outdoor shower or relax in our unique outdoor spa: rustic, reclaimed 'his and her's' claw foot tubs filled with heated pristine mountain water. Soak away your aches and pains and all the cares in the world!


We make a real effort to cater to families with children and offer the use of a wide variety of items such as a highchair, Pack-n-Play (travel crib) with an attached changing table, baby gate, a single BOB stroller as well as lots of books & toys. Outside, you'll find a play house, small climbing structure with slide and several riding toys for the smaller children.

For the older kids there is a ping pong table and foosball table in the garage and a tire swing on an old oak tree. They will also love hanging out in the bedroom lofts!

Great family home!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay at "home" for vacation this place is definitely it. There were all the comforts of home and then some. We couldn't get enough of the horseshoe pit! The location is great too. Plenty of privacy, but still relatively close to town.

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the OakHurst House! Perfect accommodations for our extended family of 8! Large sized great room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the large dining table where we all could enjoy our meals together. The loft with futon over the great room was the perfect place for my teenaged son to sleep and hang out. My younger daughter and SIL slept in the bedroom with the bunk beds; my older daughter also slept in the sleeping loft in this room. She is 14; this loft is not suitable for little ones! My in-laws stayed in the queen bedroom. My husband & I were very comfortable in the master bedroom with the king bed! It was very useful to have a washer & dryer (HE detergent only!) and we also made use of the nice gas grill the first night for dinner. I especially enjoyed sitting on the nicely furnished patio each morning as I enjoyed my breakfast. The outdoor shower & bathtubs were a fun bonus! Overall, an excellent choice for our week at Yosemite (about 50-60 minute drive to get to the Valley, but not bad at all!). We will recommend the OakHurst House to our friends and look forward to staying there again!

Excellent and true to the description

  • 5 of 5

My children and I had a wonderful trip at this home, which is conveniently located outside of Yosemite. There are potentially closer places to the National Park, but the drive is only about 30-45 minutes to the heart of it, and it's a beautiful drive anyway!

The home was full of every detail and amenities one could want, and it was CLEAN and modern. Everything worked, and my kids took it upon themselves to write a nice note in the journal in the home!

Beds are comfortable, wifi is good, all kitchen utensils, dishes, etc. all in good order and quantity. Bathrooms clean and tidy.

Quite a bit of hilly land behind the house, which my kids enjoyed a lot, including a lovely tree swing, etc. Even a nice tiny stream in back where my daughter found some little frogs (in April).

I would look forward staying here again. Wonderful home and friendly and responsive owners.

The OakStone House is located just 45 minutes from Yosemite National Park boundary and 1.5 hours from the majestic Yosemite Valley. Along the way, enjoy the drive through the Wild and Scenic Merced River Corridor. Pull over and jump into inviting swimming holes, take a photo, enjoy a stroll through beautiful wild flowers to an old gold mine, or just have a picnic along the way.

After your day in Yosemite enjoy the charming old mining town of Mariposa which is only 10 minutes away. Restaurants, bars, ice cream and shopping abound! Check the Mariposa Chamber of Commerce for weekly events and local entertainment.
