Mariposa County is known as the 'Mother of all Counties' because at one point in time, Mariposa was the largest County in state, spanning as far as Los Angeles. The communities found within the county lines are wonderful historic places to explore. The legends of how it came to be called 'Mariposa' are many and varied, but following the Gold Rush of 1849 it officially became the name of both the county and the largest town located within its boundaries. On the map we are just a short 30 minute drive from the southern end of Historic State Highway 49, also known as the Golden Chain Highway. Mariposa is the closest gateway to Yosemite Valley, considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world and home of some of the largest waterfalls in the western hemisphere.
1. To Yosemite North Entrance – Go North on Route 49 to reach The Arch Rock Highway 140 entrance that takes you through the historic town of Mariposa and along VALLEY FLOOR of the scenic Merced River Canyon. It is a beautiful drive which will take you about 45 minutes to an hour to reach the park. There are many places along the road to stop and enjoy the wild and scenic river. This area is known for spectacular wild flower viewing. To Yosemite South Entrance – Go South on Route 49 to reach Oakhurst - a larger town with many services, dining and shopping options. In Oakhurst, you will turn off to Highway 41 East to wind your way UP THE Mountain into Yosemite Park through the quaint little village of Fish Camp and Wawona – both places of many interests. Near Wawona is the must see of the Mariposa Grove of giant redwoods. As you drive further toward Yosemite just after the tunnel, be sure to pull off to see the spectacular view of the Yosemite Valley from above. 3. Bass Lake is located fifteen minutes from Oakhurst. It is a hopping place during the warm weather for water sports and just catching some sun and a picnic for the day. Bass Lake offers water sports rentals, shops, casual as well as fine dining options. 'Ducey's on the Lake' is a favorite restaurant.??4. There are 3 local golf courses just minutes away: Sierra Meadows, River Creek and Wawona, the latter is just inside Yosemite. 5. During the winter months you can travel to Badger Pass to enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.6. Many of the communities have many other activities throughout the year! On local websites you can find events like festivals, the Arts and wineries to explore. Mariposa has a Zip Line and river rafting in the summer, as well as horseback riding on forested trails. 7. Mariposa has its own airport just 10 minutes from town and 20 minutes from the cabin. Car rentals are available at the airport with advance reservations. 8. Fresno Yosemite International Airport is about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive to the cottage.

About the owner: About: Jim and Grace retired from the hectic life in Los Angeles seven years ago. Jim retired from the Los Angeles Police Dept after 27 years and went on to work in the Movie Industry and Grace retired after a successful career in the beauty industry. They now enjoy visiting wineries, traveling and meeting new people. We build the cottage on our property to be able to meet people from all over the world. We just love it!!
Why the Owner Chose Mariposa, CA, USA:
After visiting friends in the area and acting as tourists ourselves we decided we where done with the big city (Los Angeles) and would like a change. We love the mountains, rivers, lakes, trees and of course Yosemite. We never tire of taking friends to Yosemite. My wife fell in love with this property because of the unusual rocks formation and the trees.
