We are also close to the historic gold rush town of Mariposa which offers fine dining, museums, shopping, grocery stores, etc.

The Yosemite Dome Home is located on top of an oak studded hill offering scenic views in several directions.

About Irene Aborn

Yosemite Dome Home is owned and managed by Brad and Irene Aborn and is part of our 60 acre horse and cattle ranch. Brad's background includes flying jets and helicoptors for the U.S. Navy with five years on active duty and 20 years in the Reserves. Brad then went into civilian aviation and has worked for such companies as L.A. Airways, Martin Aviation, Downey Savings & Loan, Rockwell International, and the Boeing Company. After moving to Mariposa County, he ran for public office and was elected to a four year term as a Mariposa County Supervisor. Irene Aborn got her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and worked in the Banking industry after graduating from college. After a few years, she decided to pursue her dream of raising arabian horses and together Brad and Irene started Flying A Ranch Arabian Horses which has garnered world wide recognition. We have now been involved with breeding arabian horses for close to 30 years and have exported our horses around the globe.

Irene Aborn purchased this house in 2003

Why Irene Aborn chose Mariposa

Yosemite has always been one of our favorite places and we were married in 1982 in the Yosemite Chapel in Yosemite valley. In 2003 we finally took the plunge and bought our dream ranch near Yosemite in beautiful Midpines. We chose the Midpines area for it's proximity to Yosemite and the Merced River while still being a convenient drive to the beautiful historic town of Mariposa and access to fine dining, shopping, etc. When we bought the ranch, the Yosemite Dome Home was the only structure on the property. Our family of five lived in the Dome Home for three years while our new ranch home was built. We really loved the time we spent living in the Dome Home and felt that others should have the opportunity to enjoy it also.

What makes this house unique

The Yosemite Dome Home is very private and secluded. The Dome Home is located on a private, gated road where you can enjoy peace and quiet. A small herd of miniature Irish Dexter cattle roam the pastures surrounding the Dome Home. Wild turkeys and white tail deer are very commonly seen on the ranch. You may also see foxes, coyotes, bobcats, jack rabbits, and many species of birds. Guests are welcome to take a tour of the horse ranch as well.

Perfect Place Near Yosemite

  • 5 of 5
My son and I stayed here on a trip to Yosemite and absolutely loved it. You are out in the country here, on a real working ranch, but off by yourself. Great internet. Homey. Spectacular views from behind the house overlooking the Sierra foothills. I spent two hours one evening sitting there looking out in rapt amazement as the sun went down. The owners, Brad and Irene, live in the main ranch house down the hill, and are really nice and very helpful people. I want to go back!

Wonderful!

We had a great time. The cottage was perfect - secluded and quiet, yet reasonably close to anything we needed. The kids and the dog loved just being in nature - the cows, the birds, the horses. Yosemite NP was an hours drive away along a beautiful, scenic route. The cottage had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing 2 week getaway on a horse ranch with a view!

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the most peaceful vacations we have ever had. My husband and I loved the open feel of the dome house, which made it feel much bigger than it really was. It was warm and cozy when the weather was cold, and it even had a dog yard for our puppy. What a nice way to spend the Holidays... away from everything, yet the wireless let us check the internet when we needed to.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed two nights, 4/10&11. The house is roomy, well outfitted, clean and has a gorgeous view over several mountain ridges. From here to Yosemite it is a spectacular drive up the Merced River canyon. And only 7 miles to Mariposa below. Very convenient. The owners are very helpful. Wildlife is abundant, especially turkeys, deer and a variety of birds. Wild flowers were in bloom and covered the ground like a carpet. There are horses and cows on the large property. I had wanted to get a close look at a geodesic dome and this one is a classic. But I will return for the views and quiet comfortable ambiance. This would be ideal for a family or group that wants to explore Yosemite Valley. Highly recommended.

Dome House in Midpines near Yosemite

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the dome house Oct. 6 and 7, 2012. The house was very charming and clean and the owners were helpful answering questions. The house was what I thought it was. I had a nice master bedroom and a living dining room and upstairs there were 4 more beds. The bathroom was adequate and the kitchen had everything I needed. The view of the mountains from the house was spectacular! Yes, I will probably go there again and will definitely recommend it to friends.
