The Ponderosa House is ideal for a relaxing mountain get-away or the perfect accommodation for exploring nearby Yosemite National Park.

It is perfectly situated for quick access to Yosemite, white water rafting on Merced River, wildlife viewing, wildflower viewing, skiing Badger Pass, or just enjoying the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The Ponderosa House comfortably sleeps up to 6 with all the comforts of home. Two bedrooms with queen size beds and one bedroom with a double size bed.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are light and airy. The house is tastefully decorated with many Yosemite themed photos. Wireless DSL is available for those needing to be connected. Washer and dryer is ready for those requiring fresh clothes. There is plenty of free parking on site.

The gorgeous drive through the Merced River Canyon brings you to Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House is conveniently located in the community of Midpines close to the Highway 140 corridor. The Yosemite National Park boundary is a 25-mile drive along the “all weather highway” which follows the Wild and Scenic Merced River (37 miles to Yosemite Village). The gold rush town of Mariposa is only 10 miles to the west. Merced is 45 miles, and the Fresno airport is a 90-minute drive. The Merced River Recreation Area (Briceburg) is less than 8 miles away.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was lovely and had everything we needed to make a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. It's close enough to Mariposa to get coffee, shop, etc but far enough away that you truly relax in the great outdoors. We will most certainly be back!

New tradition

  • 5 of 5

For my mom's birthday the 5 of us stayed at this beautiful home and loved it! We drove into the park Thursday and Friday, it took about 40-50 minutes each time. The house is very spacious and the kitchen is well equipped for a rental. We are definitely considering renting again next year.

Yosemite trip

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the ponderosa house for 3 nights. It is a lovely house with some nice touches. We enjoyed our stay except the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. A tempurpedic pad would definitely help. Also the skillets are awful to cook with because they are Not the non-stick type. Make sure you follow all of the check out directions. I loaded the dishwasher and ran it but was not aware that we were supposed to wait around and unload it before checking out. After soaking the skillet for 2 days I mistakenly thought it would come clean in the dishwasher. We were charged $25 for our misdeeds. We always try and leave the homes we rent looking as nice as possible and have never once had a problem after renting over 40 homes with VRBO. Many people have thanked us for the condition we left their home in. It is a nice place just pay careful attention to all of the check out details.

Beautiful, relaxing setting and a sparkling home with every convenience

  • 5 of 5

The Ponderosa is perfect for a short or long stay. The kitchen is huge, the entire house is immaculate, and the setting is beautiful. Renea and Rod were terrific hosts, and we loved having such a comfortable haven to return to after a day in Yosemite hiking. It's an easy drive to Yosemite from the Ponderosa. We have stayed at other lodging outside the park many times, but this was the best by far, and we would come back again.

Amazing and you won't regret it

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away with how accommodating, relaxing and fully furnished the home was. After a long day of hiking, it was the perfect place to come back and sit in the hot tub while looking at the stars or have a nice meal in the backyard. They have done a wonderful job maintaining the home and I'd definitely go again! Worth every penny.
