After graduation, they relocated to the Mariposa area and have since had three beautiful daughters, Bella, Olivia & June.

Courtney Twiss purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Courtney Twiss chose Mariposa
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!

Cozy home in cute little town!
We loved our time at this home! We took a trip to Yosemite and this was a comfortable and affordable place to stay! It's about an hour drive to the park, but we didn't mind because it was so beautiful! We appreciated the soft sheets and bath towels that were provided, and also the nice washer and dryer! We will definitely be back!
Clean, but dated
Musty smell to this unit. Close to road, could hear people in unit below. Sound machines in both bedrooms worked well. We stayed for 8 nights, pots and pans were very worn. Brand new Washer/dryer which is awesome for daily hikers. Furniture in living room was uncomfortable and old and dated. NO comfortable outdoor space because this unit was right on 49. We left for Yosemite everyday by 6:30am for hiking and generally returned by 5 or 6. Place was fine, for minimal time.
All the comforts of home
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.
Great place. Perfect location when spending time at Yodemite. Very clean. Wonderful owners, very accomindating. The bottle of wine was the icing on the cake. We would definitely book again!
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.
This place is great 😄
