Car: Recommended

With Yosemite National Park as it's backyard, Mariposa's location can't be beat! Just 37 miles to Yosemite Village, Mariposa is ideally situated. This quaint gold rush town has a wonderful downtown with excellent restaurants, antique stores, ice cream & candy shops, museums, and many historical buildings to explore. Twiss Family Cottage is approximately 1.3 miles to downtown, so you can easily drive or walk to just about anywhere you'd want to go!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Jarrod was raised in Mariposa, but met Courtney in Chico while attending college. After graduation, they relocated to the Mariposa area and have since had three beautiful daughters, Bella, Olivia & June. Jarrod & Courtney are avid travelers, but love having Mariposa as their home base. They feel so fortunate to live in such a beautiful town and hope you enjoy Mariposa as much as they do.

Why the Owner Chose Mariposa, CA, USA:
We feel so fortunate to live near Yosemite National Park. We are very excited by the idea of running a vacation rental and giving others the opportunity to enjoy the park and all that Mariposa has to offer. It's truly a great little town that is fun to explore!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What we love about Twiss Family Cottage is the great location! You can walk or quickly drive to all the amenities. As for the cottage itself, we love the hard wood floors, the quirky sized windows and funky character of a cool old home! We hope you enjoy it too!
