Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places on this planet and a visit there will be a life changing experience. Besides the Valley floor where most visitors go first, there are so many spots away from the crowds to explore.
Year Purchased: 2001
About: Originally from upstate New York, I moved to San Francisco in my 20's and lived there for 18 years. I had quite an exciting life in the city but in my 40's realized I needed a change from big-city living, which brought me to the beautiful mountains of Mariposa. I was trained as a french chef and love to talk about anything food related. Some of my other interests include photography, horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking, off-roading and most importantly...spending time with my family :)
Why Mariposa, CA, USA:
My father was traveling to Yosemite and made a wrong turn ... or should we say right turn. He found the area so charming that he called a real estate company and returned the following month to check out properties. He fell in love with this log cabin and the rest is history.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located on eleven acres this cabin gives you plenty of privacy with all the comforts and style you would expect from a modern lifestyle.
