About the property

3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 5.5 acres, mountain views, sleeps 10-14

August 24, 2018:

The Ferguson Fire is 100% contained! Yosemite Park is fully open, and has good air quality! All park access roads are open (Hwys 140, 41 and 120).

Sierra Luxury Log Home is a spacious and upscale two-story home, built in 2007 on a quiet 5.5 acre gated property in the Sierra foothills. From this home between Mariposa and Oakhurst there is convenient access to both the west and south entrances of Yosemite Park. Enjoy 3000 sq. ft. of living space, including three bedrooms and four full bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own adjoining bathroom. This home sleeps 11 comfortably, with one king and two queen size beds, a queen size sleeper couch, and a full size sleeper couch with an additional day bed that are part of the seating area in the great room. (Comfortable folding mattresses with bedding are available for larger groups.) Hi-speed WIFI is provided, so bring your devices!

The view from the elevated wraparound deck includes Indian Peak, the Sierra foothills and beautiful forested surroundings. The deck has plenty of seating and 2 outdoor dining tables. Renters are welcome to walk this large groomed property that is bordered by the East Fork of the Chowchilla River (a seasonal creek). You can also hike or bicycle for miles on the very quiet country road that adjoins the property. This home is at 2800 ft. in elevation. Our well-maintained outdoor hot tub seats 7 adults comfortably.

There are beautiful granite counter tops in the kitchen and all of the bathrooms. All tubs and showers have tiled surrounds. The spacious fully-equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and includes everything you'll need for preparing and serving your meals. Comfort is assured with forced air heating and air conditioning throughout. Two instant on-demand water heaters insure that you'll never run out of hot water, even when using the hot tub. Land line phones provided.

The dining table seats up to 10. Four more can be seated at the breakfast bar. The spacious great room has a high vaulted ceiling, plenty of comfortable seating, and over-sized windows. There is a gas fireplace and a large flat screen TV for viewing satellite TV or DVDs from our large collection. The owners have hunted big game on safaris to Africa (donating the meat to charity) and several exotic mounts adorn the room.

The large master bedroom suite and a second bedroom suite are upstairs. The third bedroom suite is downstairs, where you'll also find a comfortable den with a large TV and a game area that includes board games, puzzles, toys and an electric air hockey table for some family fun. The 4th bathroom is accessible from the den. There are 4 TVs in the home, located in the great room, den, master bedroom and downstairs bedroom.

Location:

We think this home is in the perfect spot! It's a great location, midway between Mariposa and Oakhurst. Both Mariposa and Oakhurst are great areas for travelers, but with differing amenities and feel. Mariposa, 13 miles away, is picturesque and smaller. It's the closest town to the west entrance of Yosemite Park and the famous Yosemite Valley. (The west entrance is 41 miles from this rental home.) Oakhurst, 19 miles away, is the closest town to the south entrance of Yosemite (The south entrance is 35 miles from this rental home). Just inside the south entrance is the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias and the Wawona area with it's huge historic Wawona Hotel/restaurant, natural swimming areas, pleasant hikes and Pioneer Yosemite History Center. Weekly BBQ (all-you-can-eat) picnics are served on the lawn of the Wawona Hotel on Saturday evenings all summer. Oakhurst has additional amenities like a multiplex movie theater and a multitude of shopping venues, grocery stores and dining choices. It is also near the Sugar Pine Railroad (a historic full-size steam locomotive providing narrated family-oriented excursions through the mountain slopes). On the way home from the south entrance, visit picturesque Bass Lake (23 miles from this rental home), with its many sandy beaches, hiking opportunities, boat rentals and restaurants. Bass Lake water is a perfect temperature for swimming in the summer.

About Magdalena and Bruce Beall (Yellowstone/Yosemite Vacation Rental Homes, LLC)

The owners of this beautiful property had it built it for their own family gatherings and still use it that way. Now, beginning July 2015, they're making it available as a vacation rental to other conscientious families who will take good care of it. The owners have hunted for big game in Africa, donating the meat to local villagers. There are several beautiful mounts of these wondrously exotic animals hanging in the great room and in the master bedroom.

Awesome place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean and the kitchen was very well-stocked. We spent many hours playing cards around the large dining room table. It was clean and had everything that we needed, including coolers for our adventures to Yosemite. On our last day, we got a special treat when a flock of wild turkeys traipsed through the backyard.!

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the cabin. It was well equipped and clean. An excellent place for family get together. Close enough to the Yosemite National Park and other nearby outdoor activities. The managers, Bruce and Magdalena Bealls were very nice and accommodating. Bruce responded right away when called and resolved some issues right away.

A lovely place for memorable family reunion.

Family friendly. Perfect for a reunion.

  • 5 of 5

The rooms are conveniently located to provide for both times of privacy and times of fellowship. All 11 of us able to sit at the table together! Good access to Yosemite Valley and also the South Gate / Wawona area. The drive to Yosemite Valley is a bit long.

There is a creek with wading pools about 200 yards before arriving at the house, with a one lane bridge. It would be a perfect addition to your property, if permission from the neighbors could be arranged. It is a 7 minute walk for the kids and no danger at all. The water is cool and refreshing.

Location:

Sierra Luxury Log Home is mid-way between the towns of Mariposa and Oakhurst, conveniently located for driving either to the south entrance (35 miles) or the west entrance (41 miles) of Yosemite National Park. You'll want to use both entrances. The Yosemite Valley and many of the main attractions of the park, including Half Dome, El Capitan and Tuolumne Meadow, are most easily accessed through the west entrance. At the south entrance is the amazing Mariposa Grove with its hundreds of giant sequoia trees and miles of hiking trails among them. Enjoy a gourmet meal at the nearby historic and charming Wawona Hotel or its Saturday night BBQ on the lawn each summer Saturday night. There is an easy and shady 3.2 mile loop hike just across the street, around the Wawona Golf Course and a flowering meadow, and incredible natural swimming/wading spots in the nearby river. Bass Lake (23 miles from the home) is a worthwhile side trip on your way home from the south entrance or a wonderful all-day destination. Dine at Ducey's overlooking the lake after a comfortable swim from one of the lake's many sandy beaches. Boats of all kinds can be rented by the hour or the day.

There are dozens of amazing things to see and do in this beautiful area of the Sierra Nevada mountains and foothills, from zip lines to rides on a historic steam railroad, interesting museums, musical events, and hiking and biking trails galore. We detail dozens of interesting things to see and do on our own website and are happy to answer your questions to help you plan your trip.

Please note: The Mariposa Grove is now closed for renovations until June 2018. Giant sequoia trees can be seen at the Tuolumne Grove in Yosemite until the Mariposa Grove reopens.
