We stayed in Mariposa for 4 nights to tour Yosemite from August 1 - August 4th. Cindy made the experience flawless, was super responsive and very helpful. We appreciated the note and goodies she left for us, especially the wine and POPCORN! After Friday afternoon traffic from San Jose, the snack was super! We loved Mariposa and the ability to walk to restaurants. We even walked to the pioneer grocer since there were 5 of us we had plenty of hands to carry home the groceries. The store made the BEST sandwiches at the deli, which the Mist Trail hikers loved. The house was comfortable and such a tremendous value…so much room for the same price of a hotel room. The house was well stocked. Coffee, coolers, beach towels.. we did not need or miss a thing. The deck was great, and it was nice to grill out one night. I would not hesitate to recommend the Z's retreat! We drove to Yosemite every day, but the YART was available for those who would rather not drive. It is a beautiful part of the country, we can not wait to go back!
