About the Property

Lovely 2000 Sq Ft. 3 Bdrm/3 Ba Nature Themed Decor In The Foot Hills.

Grace Oaks is a lovely home for your retreat or getaway. Nestled in mountains, just a mile and a half from Mariposa, 'The Gateway to Yosemite,' and decorated with the theme of the wildlife that roam nearby, you'll enjoy coming home to this retreat after a day in Yosemite, or Historic Mariposa. The home features a game room (pool table and foosball)
jacuzzi,wrap around deck, fire circle, TV, Books, Wifi, a fully functional kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, fireplace w/ insert. Nearby Mariposa and other historic towns like Coulterville, Hornitos, Bear Valley, the mariposa museum, and the state mineral exhibit are fun to explore.
In the summer the town is alive with tourists, weekend 'Music on the Green' featuring local artists in a lovely park setting, occasional open air movies on the park lawn.
A fun time to visit is in the spring, when the falls in Yosemite are running. Mariposa has it's butterfly festival, and parade (usually the first weekend in May.) The poppies in the Briceburg canyon are breath-taking.
Fall is also wonderful; Starting with the Labor Day Parade and old fashioned Mariposa County Fair. I love the colors that come with the changing of the leaves, and the crisp air.
Winter is great, especially if we have a few snows! The Mariposa Christmas parade is usually the first weekend in December, as is the annual Christmas Craft fair. Yosemite offers some fun activities at the Ahwannee, as well as ice skating, and skiing, or it's always fun to drive there to see the Lord's majestic Creation. It's also fun to just relax at Grace Oaks... away from the hustle and bustle...sit on the porch and watch for deer (which I see here everyday,) wild turkeys, quail,& rabbits, while you enjoy a good book...( and I just saw a coyote there today.) Roast marshmellows around our fire circle, or hang out under the stars in our Jacuzzi.
Nothing beats a family Christmas away from the city. Get away and remember what a simple quiet CHRISTmas is really all about.
You can't beat the price... all these rooms and a kitchen for the same price of one little stuffy hotel room. What do you have to lose?. ;)

Finally, one important note...Anyone that must check in on a Sunday can not check in until 5pm. Because most people check out on Sundays, Sundays are a very hard day to get cleaners.

We often drive to the Briceburg River to swim, or over to Bagby or McSwain to fish and boat. At Briceburg during some summer months there are whitewater rafting trips. You can play tennis and swim at the local Mariposa Park, Drive to Yosemite for a day of sight-seeing, biking and hiking. There's always plenty to do!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a Christian mother of 7 and grandmother of 12. My husband proposed to me 41 years ago, and we are still very happily married. It has been a dream of mine for many years to host a vacation home. I have worked for other vacation homes and a Bed and Breakfast, and looked forward to the day that I could buy my own.

Why the Owner Chose Mariposa, CA, USA:
This property is everything I could have dreamed of. i loved the two stories, the air of years gone by. The old hammer and horse shoes stuck into the Mariposite fireplace. The fire pit reflects my love of playing my guitar around the fire while family and church friends roasted marshmallows, sang songs, and shared memories. There is a small road that meanders down to a seasonal creek bed. I especially enjoy watching the shadows fall as the sun goes down, and seeing the patches of light on the surrounding mountains from the back porch swing. There are no street lights here so the stars seem brighter. I love the weather here. The summers can get 'Gold Country Warm' and the winters can chill (with an occasional snow fall) but I love it here. God is good. Soo Good.
