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, 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 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.
(In 2018, we have been operating mostly as a homestay and renting our guest rooms while living and working on the property. During the holidays, we rent the whole house through various on-line services.)
