About the Property

3 BR / 2 Bath - Beautifully Remodeled - 2000 sq. ft. - Sleeps 8 - fast WIFI

Stay in a Park Ranger’s house!
If you are looking for peace and quiet in a comfortable home with a lot of natural light, brilliant starry night skies, and an abundance of wildlife in the Sierra foothills, then Black Oak Hill is the place for you. The house is at the top of a gated 12-acre (5-ha) property at 3100 feet (945 meters) with views of mountains, Black Oak and Ponderosa Pine forests, and a big sky. It's only 31 miles (50 km) from the west (Arch Rock) entrance to Yosemite National Park and 6 miles (9 km) from the historic and scenic gold mining town of Mariposa.

This spacious 3-bedroom / 2-bathroom home has 2000 sq. ft. all on one-level and was recently remodeled by the owners, former Yosemite National Park park rangers currently stationed at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. With two decks, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the tranquil setting and varied wildlife. The owners are happy that you can enjoy their house as you explore Yosemite National Park and Mariposa County! There's plenty to do and see, so you're welcome to stay a while! HDTV streams Netflix and other internet video services!
