About Tchukon Shanks
I am currently living in Mariposa near Yosemite. A breath taking area as many of you know. I was trained as a tradtional french chef. Some of my interests involve horseback riding, hiking, juicing, Scottish Highlander Cattle and off roading.
Tchukon Shanks purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Tchukon Shanks chose Mariposa
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 feel in love with this log cabin and the rest is history.
What makes this Cottage unique
Located on eleven acres this cabin gives you plenty of privacy with all the comforts and style you would expect from a modern lifestyle.
Great house as a gateway to Yosemite
The house was very clean and well kept. Beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. Definitely would stay here again if in the area.
Rural location. Very comfortable cabin/cottage. Plenty of room with two large bedrooms. Could use a microwave oven, but kitchen was very efficient. 40 minute drive to Yosemite entrance.
Amazing, cozy, clean, isolated!
I always travel and rent cabins all over the states. This one is so far my favorite near Yosemite area. It is very private, with lots of space for your furry friends to run around. Isolated (very important to me when I choose a cabin). Cozy, furniture is nice. Beds are very comfortable. Wood burning stove and gas grill always a big plus. Just perfect! About 30 min away from Mariposa and about an hour away from Yosemite entrance. Will definitely rent it again next time we are in Yosemite.
Decent Cozy Cabin!
The cabin is quite dark during the day however it is very cozy at night with the fireplace going. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen is adequate.
We loved it!
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Tchukon's place. It's spacious, quiet, surrounded by beautiful woods, and it has everything for a comfortable vacation. The dog had a great time as well :) If you're coming for more than a couple days, check out Mariposa, it's a very nice town. And of course the beauty of Yosemite completely blew our mind.
If you plan on having a movie night or listening to music, it might be a good idea to bring your own: the cabin's internet connection was quite slow during our stay, so Netflix and internet radio were unavailable.
This is very nice place to stay. Very relaxing... Nature all around! I would definitely recommend this place.
