Overview

About the property

This cottage is roughly 1100sq feet and nicely furnished with two bedrooms

This cozy cottage is roughly 1100 sq feet, nicely furnished and nestled on 11 acres of wooded land. After a long day of fun-filled activities, drift to sleep in one of the two cozy bedrooms with freshly-cleaned comfortable bedding. The modest kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a fabulous meal. Relax on the deck, which has a barbecue grill and seating to enjoy nature at its finest.  

During the winter months, warm up with the wood burning stove and standard gas heating.  During the summer months, cool off with air conditioned rooms and ceiling fans.

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 Yosemite Area

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.
