Stay in a Park Ranger’s house! If you are looking for peace and quiet in a comfortable and spacious one-level 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. Our 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 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. We remodeled the house while working as park rangers in Yosemite. With two decks, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the tranquil setting and varied wildlife.
Enjoy staying at our house as you explore Yosemite and Mariposa County!
