Mariposa House Rental Photos and Description

20% off the normal rent for stays Aug. 24-28, 2014! (20% off rates shown here. Call or email an inquiry to get the discount.)

AUTUMN is a wonderful time to hike in Yosemite! The gorgeous fall colors last for months. Cooler comfortable weather and smaller crowds make this time of year special and invigorating! It's our favorite time to hike Yosemite!

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Sierra foothills from our Butterfly Ridge Vacation Home at 3200 ft. above sea level! This comfortable well-maintained 1800 sq. ft. home has 2 BR/2BA and a well equipped kitchen. We can accommodate a party of 8 people comfortably with one queen size bed, 2 double beds, a queen-size sleeper couch and an optional queen-size inflatable mattress. Central forced-air heating and air conditioning throughout. A paved road and driveway lead to this quiet, private and nicely landscaped 5 acre lot. You'll have easy access to Hwy. 140, only 2.5 miles away. From there you can choose to go northeast to Yosemite National Park (only 29 miles from the home) or go southwest to historic Mariposa (7 miles from the home) for shopping, dining, groceries, interesting museums and the picturesque 160 yr. old Mariposa County courthouse, the oldest continually operated court house west of Missouri. (tours available)

Your family will never be bored here. We have a professional-grade 9 foot pool table in the game room. The living room has a designated game table supplied with lots of board games, playing cards and poker chips. We have a collection of children's books and books about Yosemite Park and local hiking trails. You can enjoy Playstation 2 video gaming on our 52 inch LCD TV, or watch satellite TV and crystal clear blu-ray movies in high definition. Included among the blu-rays are three acclaimed BBC Earth sets: Planet Earth (4 discs), Human Planet (3 discs) and Life (4 discs). These are magnificent and informative documentaries depicting the wonders of our planet and are great for family viewing. Brochures, maps and books about the area provide a way to plan your stay. Things to see and do in the area include dozens of incredibly scenic places and hikes in Yosemite Park, rafting on the Merced River, swimming, fishing, mountain biking or walking along the Merced River at Briceberg, swimming and boating at Bass Lake or Lake McSwain, and interesting walks and hikes in the Mariposa area. Mariposa also hosts concerts in the Art Park every summer weekend and has several art galleries. The county park is a great place for families to visit, providing a large swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, picnic areas, a skateboard park and a concert venue.

This quiet property is far away from city lights and secluded from neighbors. On moonless nights, you can clearly see the milky way spanning the sky - something that you will never see under the bright city lights. It is a mesmerizing moment that your family will never forget. We also have mature grape vines and fruit trees in our backyard. Feel free to pick and eat from them when you visit us in the right seasons! (The grapes are ripe in August.)

Natural foliage on this hillside property creates habitat for deer families, squirrels, rabbits and dozens of bird species including humming birds. The back yard is chain link fenced to keep the deer away from the grape vines.

Linens, bedding, towels, paper goods, trash bags, dish washing and dishwasher soap and hand soap are all provided. The kitchen is fully equipped, with attention to detail, and has everything you'll need to prepare and serve your meals. The brand new dining table seats 8 in comfortable ergonomic padded chairs.

Guests are welcome to park in the attached garage. There are parking spaces for a total of 3 vehicles at the house, including the garage. A brand new crib and high chair are stored in a closet and are put out for guest use upon request. There are 2 mountain bikes in the garage that guests are welcome to use.

Magdalena Beall purchased this house in 2012

Why Magdalena Beall chose Mariposa

We love outdoor activities and stargazing. This property is far away from city lights. It's seven miles from the historic and charming town of Mariposa and only 29 miles from the west entrance of Yosemite Park along Hwy. 140. We love the natural peace and quiet shared with the deer and singing birds. Partake of the fruit of the grape vines and fruit trees in season. This is a wonderful family friendly home.

What makes this house unique

Magnificent views of the Sierra foothills and the setting sun. Star gazing is amazing in this rural setting without bright lights to interfere. Easy access with well paved roads. Quiet and private country setting with all modern conveniences. Located on 5 acre property. There are neighbors but you won't hear them or see their homes in these wooded hills. Lots of privacy and nature.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Since January 2014, Butterfly Ridge Vacation Home has been managed by Yosemite Vacation Rental Management, of Mariposa. Since that time the owner has invested in a lot of brand new furnishings, including a queen-size sleeper couch and 2 comfortable swiveling leather recliners in the living room, a new dining table and chairs with seating for 8, new quilts and sheet sets, new towels, children's toys, and numerous items to make the kitchen truly fully equipped for cooking and dining. There are lots of beautiful new pictures on the walls and some new books about things to see and do in Yosemite. We've been pleasing guests in our vacation rental homes since 2001 and we treat our guests the way we ourselves would like to be treated. We're always available and responsive should any question or need arise during your stay. We live only 7 miles away. Rest assured that the home will be clean and well cared for when you arrive. We strive to deliver a hassle-free and pleasant experience so you can enjoy your vacation. We sincerely hope that you and your family will come with confidence to enjoy the wonders of Yosemite and other beautiful places close by, here in the Sierra foothills. We wish you a wonderful time of family fun and bonding. We keep a thorough information manual about the home and the area on the kitchen counter. Nevertheless, always feel free to call us before, during, or after your stay for advice on things to see and do, to get a question answered or a need taken care of. Wishing you the very best!

We had a great stay here at Butterfly Ridge. The house was very comfortable, and we loved the pool table. The view was stunning. Everything was taken into consideration to make our stay all the more enjoyable. The rooms were nice and big. The kitchen was large and very easy to maintain.

Beautiful View, Great Family Friendly Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at Butterfly Ridge this summer. It is big enough, plenty of space, but also comfortably small. The home is very clean and fully equipped. There are games, toys, some movies and a pool table. The sunset, moonrise and sunrise are a must see from the patio.

The managers are professional and kind. We received our deposit back in the mail in just a few short days.

The location is within an hour of Yosemite and about 15 minutes from Mariposa. Mariposa is a sweet, friendly town that is host to little shops, restaurants and a couple places to taste and buy local and regional wines.
