About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located in beautiful Mariposa County, California, the all-weather gateway to Yosemite National Park, our property offers peaceful privacy in a breathtaking setting. You'll enjoy an incredible range of landscapes and a heritage of historic sites and towns. This scenic region provides a unique glimpse of the Golden State’s early days while boasting a multitude of natural wonders.

Within minutes from the privacy and seclusion of your weekend retreat, you'll find that history lives in the Gold Rush buildings lining downtown Mariposa and Coulterville's main streets, and ghost towns like Hornitos and Bear Valley Ski Resort capture California’s pioneer spirit.

Mariposa County is as rich in history as it is recreation. Outdoor activities abound, from the majestic peaks in Yosemite National Park to the oak-studded rolling foothills to the Merced River Canyon, the region offers fishing, swimming, boating, hiking, bird watching, climbing and skiing while still being ideal for old-fashioned relaxation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We are a San Francisco family who love the outdoors and majestic beauty of our country. We own a small Hand Therapy practice in San Francisco where we care for individuals with upper extremity and hand injuries and disease. We also love music and my husband plays the double bass in 2 local volunteer symphonies.

Why the Owner Chose Mariposa, CA, USA:
We built this home ourselves in 1992.It is built on 3 acres and although there are a few houses in the area, the property is completely private. It is a solidly built home with pine wainscoating and ceilings. It has hardwood floors throughout. We adopted a Native American theme to remind us of our closeness to the earth. Our pool is fed my an underground aquifer with silky soft water.The hot tub is delicious at the end of a busy day.The Mariposa area is beautiful, quiet , magical, and of course close to Yosemite. Our family enjoys the many possibilities for activity in the area, but most of all it is a phenomenal place to relax.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love walking and hiking in the area.The Merced River is great for swimming as well. The quiet and the privacy are precious. The starry nights and warm nights. We have a good book and DVD collection. With a pool and hot tub , what more do you need?
