HAVE A LARGER PARTY? WE HAVE THE 3 BEDROOM HOME NEXT DOOR! VRBO# 980292
The home is a 5 min. walk to the heart of town where you will have many choices of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and specialty boutiques. Every Saturday morning, May thru October, stroll down to the Farmers Market and take home organic produce, baked goods and local crafts. March thru December Central Sierra Arts Council has their '2nd Saturday Arts Night' where downtown art galleries, shops and eateries celebrate the arts.
Another wonderful feature of this home is the convenient location, as a 'hub' to many incredible destinations
*Yosemite National Park...(1hr to the entrance gate)
*In the summer you can ride our Historic 49 Trolley bus between three of our gold rush towns: Jamestown, Sonora and Columbia.
*Sonora with it’s shopping, dining, theater
*Columbia State Park which is a preserved gold rush era town...(12 min. drive)
*Jamestown's Historic Railtown State park is called 'the most photographed railroad in the world.' 'Petticoat Junction,' 'The Wild, Wild West,' 'High Noon,' 'The Virginian,' and 'Unforgiven' were all filmed here. Recently, movie crews produced the railroad sequences in 'Back to the Future Part III'...(10 min. drive)
*Tuolumne’s Black Oak Casino offers the 5 star “Seven Sisters” restaurant for fine dinning and the Willow Lounge for some 'free' live music...(15 min. drive)
*For large lakes we have New Melones, Don Pedro and Tulloch (15-25 min. drive)
*Pinecrest Lake is surrounded by pine trees, granite rocks and rustic cabins is a beautiful lake to hike around, kayak on or enjoy relaxing on the beach with a picnic...(40 min. drive)
*Kennedy Meadows, 20 minutes past Pinecrest, you can horseback ride or hike into the Emigrant Wilderness.
*Day trip to the town of Murphys and stop on the way at Moaning Caverns to enter the caves or take a zip line adventure.
*Once in Murphy's, you'll find many great stores, eateries and amazing wine tasting rooms. In fact Murphy's has become known as “Little Napa” because of their many beautiful wineries.
*While in Murphy's visit Ironstone Winery which offers a great venue for a Summer Concert series and in their museum view the largest Crystalline Gold Leaf specimen in the world. Weighing forty-four pounds...(25 min. drive)
*Calaveras Big Trees State Park “up the hill” from Murphys (10 min) is magnificent! Hike in the famous North Grove of giant sequoias trees.
During the summer, the Sonora 'warm Indian summer nights' can be quite spectacular. You'll find Music in The Parks, free concerts, in numerous parks around the community. In the winter you are above the fog and close enough for an afternoon of skiing at two different resorts, Dodge Ridge or Bear Valley.
With so many fun destinations and adventures close by, I truly believe choosing this comfy home for your vacation stay in Sonora will be Perfect!

Adorable Little Cottage
Love this little cottage wish we could have stayed longer.
Such a nice little place for a couple day getaway celebrating our anniversary. Very cabinish feeling.
Really cool rustic design.
I rented this cottage as well as the main house. It is a very cool cottage with deck and plenty of space with all the amenities. Loved it
My husband and I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend and had a lovely stay. Everything is just ask pictured and the location is situated in a really adorable town with many food and grocery options. This made it a super easy option. It is about 1.5-2 hours out of yosemite - but a nice drive (scenic). My only suggestion would be that if you plan to do a lot of cooking, you might consider packing your own knives. We found the knives difficult to work with. But this is such a minor thing in comparison to how awesome the rest of the stay was.
Fantastic small house in a beautiful small town
The house is small, perfect for a couple’s vacation. Wood decor is perfect for the theme of the area. House was very clean. View was slightly blocked by some trees but otherwise great.
Would have been 5 stars if only the owner had communicated with me. Tried a couple times to contact him during our trip via email and phone with no response.
What a great place for a weekend, get away! Very much enjoyed the Cottage and location. Great memories.
