We are a couple who enjoys sharing our well-located property with others.
Mary Ripma purchased this chateau / country house in 2011
We chose Merry Posy Ranch because it is a wonderful getaway house.
Merry Posy Ranch is an ideal place to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate then visit Yosemite National Park and Mariposa!
Mark and Mary Ripma's unique home is perfectly situated for its view - not many homes are within viewing distance of Half Dome and Clouds' Rest! Five years ago the house was a "fixer-upper", but today the Merry Posy Ranch is a secluded and quiet haven for family and guests.
The Ripmas have given the 80's-style three bedroom house new life with hardwood floors, an inviting kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a Cretan meditation labyrinth reminiscent of Chartres Cathedral. With the spectacular views, porches designed for relaxation, a welcoming pool, and star gazing at its best, Merry Posy Ranch is a wonderful getaway for all.
We loved this house! We stayed over Labor Day weekend, and felt very at home and comfortable. The Ripmas thought of everything. The house was clean and well-maintained. We loved taking a dip in the pool after the long drive from LA. The views from the porch are amazing.....and the porch itself was so fun! My kids and I spent time swinging on the swing, and our family enjoyed breakfast on the porch. Thanks for a wonderful stay...we hope we'll be coming back soon!
The homeowners are very accommodating and easy to work with. The home suits the need for a family vacation near the Yosemite area very well. I would highly recommend staying at this location.
The home is extremely comfortable and we loved having the pool on the hot August days! Mary has thought of everything and was always very quick to respond to any question I had from the time of booking to check out. The starry nights are amazing and we even saw several shooting stars during our stay! My kids even loved the Disney movies and figuring out how to work a VHS ;) I would absolutely stay again.
We were a family of six adults who enjoyed three all too short days here and none of us wanted to leave. The swimming pool combined with the view was pure serenity. The house is very well stocked and the beds are comfortable. We enjoyed the spacious veranda of an evening and took in the amazing star show with even a couple of shooting stars!! The peace and quiet is constant with only the odd cockerel crow or cricket chirps to break it. You really do feel completely away from it all with beauty all around. The drive to the house is on an unmade road but not difficult or long. Mariposa is only ten minutes away and is very quaint with some lovely restaurants and antique shops.The swamp cooler works well if you leave doors open, meaning privacy for the upstairs bedrooms that are opposite each other is compromised at night. Photos cannot convey the beauty of this location, nor can words. You need to go see for yourself.
We were all very happy with the property we rented. It was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed. Everything was organized.
Our family stayed at the ranch during our vacation to Yosemite. The house was very clean and comfortable. We had everything that we needed and more. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the high speed internet. The upstairs bedrooms are very spacious and gave the kids a place to hang out.
The kitchen and living room have a nice layout. And I really enjoyed the large bedroom and bathroom downstairs. All the beds were very comfortable.
The view was unbelievable. I enjoyed sitting out on the porch and enjoying the scenery of the mountains in the distance. The property is very peaceful and relaxing.
Mary was very quick to answer my questions and provided very clear information.
I highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed.
Incredible stargazing, regulation horseshoe pit (horseshoes provided), classical labyrinth for meditative walking
