Why Jeff Bohnen chose Mariposa

One of my best friends bought a property nearby about 15 years ago and introduced me to the Yosemite area. On my very first visit, I was absolutely in awe of the beauty of this region and knew that I wanted to have a vacation home for my family to enjoy as well. Since then we have had both family and friends come up to our home to enjoy and make memories of their own. The house is just 7 miles from the mining town of Mariposa and just 40 miles to Yosemite Valley.

What makes this house unique

This place is Awesome!! There's so much to see and explore on this 14 acre private estate. This handcrafted house is one of a kind. Walk out the front door and you will get a 1950s country western feel. Walk out the other door and it feels like you are at a resort. Once used as a family farm, there are barns, chicken coops and many other buildings to explore on this property. This old world charm house features 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom upstairs, with fantastic views out of all the windows. Enjoy the private suite downstairs with 1 king and 1 sofa bed and bathroom. The large pool house suite sleeps 6 and has 1 queen bed 1 sofa bed and a loft full bed and bathroom. Right out the door is the spa and pool overlooking postcard views from the Cabana. Outdoor living and dining on one of our 3 decks. Enjoy our outdoor screened in picnic/BBQ room with no bugs while eating your meals. Beach setting right next to a picturesque pond with enormous granite boulders surrounding it. Take a hike over the bridge and up one of the trails to find breathtaking views of the great Sierra Mountains. Visit Butterfly Creek Winery, just 5 minutes away. Town of Mariposa is just 7 miles away. Short 40 mile drive to Yosemite Valley Waterfalls. July 2012 is the first time to rent out this vacation home outside of our family and close friends. This place is so beautiful that we want to share it with everyone. There is a lot to see and do on the property. Old barns and buildings to explore. It is truly a one of a kind property and we think that your family will always remember this vacation home.

Great visit for everyone in our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Jeff's property. There were so many nice touches, and it was clear this property is loved. We all had something fun to do, and we ranged in age from 3 to 75. It was as nice as it sounded, and we really enjoyed staying here. The well-stocked kitchen, fluffy towels, comfy beds, washer/dryer, full bottles of lotion, etc., made everything easy. The property was full of nature with several deer and turkeys in the backyard every day. The drive to Yosemite was a bit long but very beautiful. Mariposa had everything we needed. Definitely a 5-star property!

Perfect Paradise near Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. It was our first time using VRBO and honestly I was afraid the pictures posted would be misleading as to what we would find upon arrival - I was so happy it all was true!

Very clean and comfortable, we had three families and it was great for us to each have our own space to retreat. Kitchen was well supplied with any cooking utensil/cookware we needed. Everything was well thought out and available upon need. Wish we could call it home forever! Thank you for sharing your paradise

My family loved it at the cabin! This is such a beautiful and unique property. My boys really enjoyed the pirate ship with water cannon. I am so glad we were able to enjoy this lovely home for a few days while visiting Yosemite! Thanks Jeff!

Fairwell to Dad

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family, all 18 of us, gathered at this awesome property to stay and venture to Yosemite to spread our Dad's ashes. He took us to Yosemite 10 years ago and it was his wish that we bring him back. This property served us well and encouraged us to gather as an extended family and spend quality time together. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 recently stayed at this amazing and beautiful resort. The location is great, only about an hour to Yosemite. We all enjoyed the amenities it offered. There was something for everyone from young kids to adults. We all enjoyed the pool, the spa, the hiking trail to the tree house, the comfortable beds, the pirate ship, and so much more. I highly recommend staying at this resort.

Thank you Jeff for being so responsive, helpful , accommodating, and for sharing your home. We are all looking forward to return in the near future.
