About Courtney Twiss

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.

Courtney Twiss purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Courtney Twiss chose Yosemite Area

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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!

We stayed 3 nights and spent each day in Yosemite NP, about 70 minutes away, so we did not explore the town of Mariposa at all. We were impressed with the amenities provided at the cottage: toiletries, decently fast internet, Netflix... The "tips" bulletin board on the entryway wall where other travelers wrote their suggestions for things to do was a great bonus.

The cottage was so roomy and comfortable, it had everything we needed to feel at home while spending our days sightseeing. The bedding and towels were so soft! Everything we needed was right at our fingertips: a health food store, grocery, great restaurants, adorable shops, and of course Yosemite.
