Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for all the goodies in the kitchen- all the spices and coffee and special extras, that was nice. We enjoyed the quiet, the hot tub and pool. The scent of the forest and especially the deer and the birds. Such a lovely setting! The cooler really worked great for our picnics and our grocery shopping, so glad you had it here. (wonderful that you thought of it). We appreciated the wifi so we could upload photos and use our computers. Thank you for the hospitality, glad we got to chat the other day.

More than we hoped for

  • 5 of 5
Boy, were we pleasantly surprised. Great location, quiet, secluded. House was spotless and had everything we needed. Pool was refreshing and the hot tub relaxing. Sandy and Alan are the nicest people. Loved being greeted every morning by Gopher the cat while sitting on the deck enjoying a cup of coffee and looking out at the property. Wish we could have longer. Already thinking about another trip in the future with our daughter and grandkids

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the end of September for two nights. It was a great place for relaxing. My family loved this place. Private, good location to visit Yosemite, nice pool and Jacuzzi (couldn't use it much due to 1yr son, next time definitely will enjoy), great price (I agree that it is a bit out-dated but nothing bothered me, and yes it is a great deal). I will definitely return for my next visit to Yosemite. Many thanks to Sandy!

Clean, great amenities, charming town

  • 4 of 5
Clean with all of the amenities you could possibly want for a relaxing time near the charming town of Mariposa. I would give this a VERY good. My 3 daughters and I stayed here for 2 nights and were very glad to find the property as described/photographed including a fully equipped kitchen, TV/DVD, plenty of towels, pillows etc. as well as a 4 person hot tub & above ground pool. The house is in the woods and it was so quiet sitting outside in the mornings I could hear the horse's footsteps from the next door property. Deer, birds, a domestic cat and a dog visited us and we could hear goats from somewhere nearby as well. Good restaurants (1850 Restaurant), Donuts A Go-Go (home-made with wonderful variations) and High Country Health Food & Cafe (Vegan options) were close by and delicious. We weren't on a schedule so we got late starts driving to Yosemite which wasn't too far for day trips. If you are going to hike in the park, be sure to bring change of clothes as elevations can differ by almost 20 degrees. Even without the waterfalls having little more than mists, the majestic beauty is still worth a visit.

Sure beats a hotel!

  • 4 of 5
Location is fantastic, roughly 15 minutes from the park, with little to no traffic. The place is a bit off the main road, so be prepared for offroading a little, but nothing my little Hyundai couldn't handle. The house itself is equipped with a decent (but loud) AC window/wall unit, and a couple of ceiling fans to keep the heat down. The Internet was a bit slow, but it could handle Netflix streaming, so that was good enough. The TV in the family room has Dish, but there is no TV in the bedroom. While not everyone likes to watch TV on vacation, it would have been a nice touch for flexibility. Owner is very responsive if you have any (potential) issues. Cellphone reception is horrible, unless you have Verizon, but that is hardly the owner's fault. There are many animals roaming outside, including deer and turkey, that are a pleasure to watch.

For the price? 5*!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 stayed here in mid August 2014. For all the bad reviews about the interior (yes, it's a bit dated) I want to say this place is all about being OUTSIDE! Yosemite is on your doorstep, but in your backyard are great walks, PLUS a hot tub and a little pool!
There is a BBQ and a fully fitted kitchen. A deck to sit on and watch the sun go down.

The only downside is that it takes around 45 minutes to get to the park gates. We didn't mind as it's a pretty nice 45 minute drive.

Lovely place!

  • 4 of 5
8 of us stayed in this lovely cabin for 3 days and really enjoyed it. Although the decor is a little bit old, there's everything you need and, most importantly, it's in a beautiful, quiet setting. We loved the pool and the hot tub! One evening we were visited by two large dears and often by a friendly local dog during the day (my daughter loved it!). We had a little problem with one extra inflatable mattress, but it was promptly substituted with 2 folding beds; all on all a good experience and would definitely recommend it!
