About Russ or Connie Bockhop
Live close by and admired this property for many years. Bought for retirement hobby to clean up and improve. House needed repairs and decided it would make a beautiful vacation home. Happy with finished project and hope visitors will enjoy this unique setting and privacy overlooking beautiful pond.
Russ or Connie Bockhop purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2008
Why Russ or Connie Bockhop chose Mariposa
Challenge and unique setting. Started out as a golf club house built in the late seventies and then turned into a restaurant for many years closing in the early eighties. Since then sat empty and deteriorating until we bought from owners estate. It's been an ongoing project since then. Clean mountain air with level terrain make for ideal experience.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Overlooks pond with fish. Fishing allowed but please release if not going to eat. Rooster tails work best. Easy access to trails for hiking, biking. House has open floor plan with deck & patio for entertaining. Large modern island kitchen with eating bars for serving. Balcony with stairs to patio would work well for outdoor wedding overlooking pond. Plenty of room for parking and guests.

Sisterhood of Travelling Flip Flops
My college travel buddies (Sisterhood of Travelling Flip Flops ) stayed in this beautiful cozy red cottage from September 30-October 2, 2018. Place was spic and span. Everything we needed in the kitchen were all there from spices to pots and pans. Our stay was very relaxing and perfect to reminiscence our college days. We will definitely recommend this End of the Road Retreat to our family and friends.
Before we left, we had a chance of meeting Russ which even made out stay special.
Wish we can post our photo with Russ.
Great place and beautiful location
This property is very clean, comfortable and roomy. It is in a beautiful wooded location, very private and peaceful.
Couldn't be better!
We are returning 2nd time because we loved the house that much! Absolutely best value for the price you pay. Big house with everything you may need and beautiful property around it. Few of our friends decided to just spend a day at the house instead of driving to Yosemite - it is that good. 100% booking it again.
Will be back!
My family, friends, and I stayed here for the weekend and I really wish we could have stayed longer. The cabin was beautiful, a hidden gem where you can retreat and reenergize from the busyness of the city. There was plenty of space for us all and I really enjoyed cooking in the kitchen as well as having a meal with my family. Got to see deer and wild turkeys. Hoping to return soon!
Spacious home with everything you need
This is a true hidden gem. It’s in a peaceful area near Yosemite, and it has numerous grills/fire pits, fishing equipment for the lake out back, multiple TV’s, and a ton of space for a large family. The owners are extremely nice too. We were forced to evacuate on our last night due to a wild fire in the near-by area, and the owners refunded our last night without us having to ask. Highly recommend this property.
Peace and Tranquility
Beautiful property! Everything you could ask for in a stay. Enjoyed the peace and quiet with my adult children, and grandchild. A wonderful experience.
Nestled in the Sierra National Forest on twenty sprawling acres with towering pine trees and a private pond right out your back door. Whether you are looking for a vacation spot or a quiet retreat for your business, social group event or unique wedding experience, you've found the right place. A cozy retreat just waiting for you.
The Merced River, Yosemite and Bass Lake Recreational Area are all a short drive away. From exploring Yosemite to water-skiing on Bass Lake, you'll have plenty of adventures to keep you and your family smiling for days to come. The town of Mariposa offers quaint shops for shopping and a museum full of gold rush history and gold panning. A zip line ride at the edge of town is a heart stopping experience.
