• Two Bedrooms, Queen-size beds
- New mattresses and pillows
- New sheets, comforters, etc.
• One Full Bathroom (Shower only)
- New rugs and towels

• Full-sized Futon bed (54 in × 75 in 137 cm × 191 cm) for additional guests in the Rec Room
• New Kitchen towels, pans, and appliances
• FREE WiFi Access

The Convenience and Safety of nearby highway access, with the Peace and Quiet — and Privacy — of no city, no town next door.
Near Yosemite: 38 miles drive to Yosemite Village on the valley floor.
15 minutes from Mariposa.

Intended for one or two active couples or perhaps a small family.
This house is not for those with accessibility concerns. Both of the bedrooms & the bathroom are up a steep set of stairs.

Juliana E.:
The house was just as it was described and shown in pictures. Very quiet, cozy, and with plenty of space for a family. Everything was very clean and organized. Having a kitchen to use is always a huge plus as well. We would definitely look to stay here again on our next trip to Yosemite!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: John and Wendy have explored, worked and lived in the Yosemite area since 1991. The peaceful beauty, accessibility to outdoor activities, and variety of local wildlife were a big part of our decision to settle in the Sierra foothills. We bought the Midpines property in 1992 and first built on property in 1997. Our cousins and in-laws Jon and Shanna grew up in California. Both have memories of time spent with their respective families camping, rafting and enjoying Yosemite and the Sierra. They currently live in the Bay Area traveling to the Mariposa area several times a year to visit family, friends and the park. Both couples have traveled using vacation rentals and know the value of a comfortable home to plan activities from. Together we would like to welcome you to our guest house. Mariposa County is great place to unwind, and the boundary to Yosemite National Park is 25 miles away. Shanna is available by phone or internet to book reservations and to answer questions. Wendy and John are located in the Mariposa area to assist you on-site, offer local recommendations or allow you to enjoy complete, uninterrupted privacy at Pine Hill Guest House.

Why the Owner Chose Midpines, CA, USA:
The Pine Hill Guest House was constructed, by us, in 1999. The cabin is located on a knoll offering forested, mountain views in every direction. The outdoor living area has several seating areas to put your feet up, a BBQ to prepare meals and an outdoor dining area to enjoy complete privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
On the ground floor, the saltbox style cabin has two living areas. The first kitchen/dining/living area is a comfortable space to prepare meals, relax or watch TV. The other half of the downstairs is the recreation room with additional living space to unwind. The recreation room has a book exchange, ping-pong table, dart board, some board games and puzzles. The area also offers pantry storage for the kitchen, laundry facilities and room for outdoor gear. All bedding, linens & paper goods provided
