Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom with Mountain Views

Email for long term rental arrangements. Just 30 miles from the Arch Rock Entrance to Yosemite National Park and close to many year-round activities throughout Mariposa County sits Quarry House;

a secluded getaway committed to providing a smoke-free and clean environment for Yosemite visitors to rest and relax in.

The homeowner chose the name Quarry House for the unique granite outcroppings on the property. The house is surrounded by Black Oaks, Manzanita, Pine Trees and visited daily by various bird species and deer. The granite rocks, the wildness of the yard and how it changes with the seasons is part of the appeal of Quarry House.

The inside of the home, with three spacious bedrooms and two full baths will comfortably accommodate up to 8 people. The open floor plan, connecting the fully stocked kitchen, dining area and entertainment corner, makes this an inviting space to gather with family and friends. There is great Wi-Fi, no cable TV, and a landline with local and long distance calling (U.S. only), as there is spotty cell reception in most of the area. The house is cooled by an evaporative cooler, not central AC. Directions on how to use the evaporative cooler are in the Information Binder in the house. There are also fans provided for extra air circulation if desired.

Quarry House is a mere 7 miles from historic gold rush town of Mariposa, which offers an array of dining options, grocery stores, museums, wine tasting, antiquing and local boutiques. Enjoy the beautiful drive along highway 140 for easy access to the Merced River and Yosemite National Park.

About The Owner

As a long time resident of Mariposa County, I have greatly enjoyed living, playing and working in this beautiful mountain range. I spent many years in the backcountry of Yosemite constructing stone trails before going into the building trades. My experience as a stonemason and builder is what I have brought to Quarry House in order to elevate and express what this property has to offer. I spent time renovating the entire house, adding amenities and unique stone accents throughout the home to make it what it is today. I still stay there from time to time to continue working on sculptures and other art projects with the granite from the land. Quarry House was my home for many years. I decided to open it up as a vacation rental so that people could experience Yosemite from the comfort of a Sierra Foothills home. I hope you enjoy your stay at Quarry House!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Quarry House was amazing! ♥

We enjoyed every miniute of it… the deer in the morning was probably the most amazing part although the trees and other wildlife were things we will always remember. Until next time, Quarry House, ♥

clean and quite

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Loved the open concept and secluded location. We were greeted with deers upon our arrival and we spotted them often. Not far from Mariposa for groceries and other things you may need. About 45min drive into Yosemite Valley, but the drive is beautiful. The place was clean and well stocked on most things. It was hot, but the cooling system worked great for the shared space, and large fans were provided for the bedrooms. We were about 15 min late checking out and the cleaner had to wait 10min for us to leave, but we were still returned our deposit which was much appreciated. Thanks for a lovely stay! We would stay again in the future.

Functional and well situated for Yosemite

  • 3 of 5

I would give this property a 5 star if it wasn't for the unbearable temperature in the large bedroom - no a/c and the fan made no impression whatsoever. I ha to sleep on the couch in the living room

That said, the property was sparkling clean and incredibly well organised

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our needs and secluded. We went to a wedding in Yosemite and this place served as our HQ to get ready for the festivities. Charming home with all the amenities in a private setting!
