NEW SPACIOUS & CLEAN FAMILY FRIENDLY HOME NEAR YOSEMITE**

Yosemite National Park House Rental Photos and Description

Brand new custom home with 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 lofts

Escape the crowds of Yosemite and stay at the OakStone House. Located 10 minutes from the charming town of Mariposa and 45 minutes from the majesty of Yosemite National Park, it is the perfect location for your vacation in the Sierra.

The OakStone House was completed in 2013. Sitting on 5 private acres and 2400 sq. ft in size, it has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and can sleep 8 people.

*THE LIVING, DINING, KITCHEN*

The Great Room has ample space to fit your group very comfortably. It has a large sectional couch and recliner chair, wood burning stove, a 48' HDTV and an upstairs loft. Satellite and WiFi are included. The loft is the kid's corner with games, puzzles, books and toys as well as a futon and papasan chair for extra sleeping and hanging out.

Indulge your inner Julia Child in the fully equipped kitchen and adjoining dining area, or relax with a snack at the 6 ft butcher block island.

The laundry room includes a HE washer, dryer, an extra sink and another full refrigerator. There is also an outdoor line to hang your clothes in the fresh mountain air.

*THE BEDROOMS & BATHS*

All 3 bedrooms are located on the other side of the house, separated by a door away from the main living area. They each have new, comfortable beds and their own heating/cooling units.

The master bedroom has a solid wood Calking bed with high quality linens and it's own private access to the backyard and spa. The attached bathroom includes a pedestal tub and separate shower, double vanity with granite countertops and a water closet.

Both the second & third bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and lofts. The kids bedroom has a solid wood twin over full size bunk bed with a twin size trundle underneath. The other bedroom has a very comfortable queen iron bed and an antique dresser.

*OUTSIDE*

Enjoy the beautiful covered patio outside the Great Room. Play a game of horseshoes, darts or sit on the deck down by the seasonal creek and revel in the glorious views of granite outcroppings, towering oaks, manzanitas, elderberry, and wildflowers.

Refresh yourself in a private outdoor shower or relax in our unique outdoor spa: rustic, reclaimed 'his and her's' claw foot tubs filled with heated pristine mountain water. Soak away your aches and pains and all the cares in the world!

*FOR THE KIDS*

We make a real effort to cater to families with children and offer the use of a wide variety of items such as a highchair, Pack-n-Play (travel crib) with an attached changing table, baby gate, a single BOB stroller as well as lots of books & toys. Outside, you'll find a play house, small climbing structure with slide and several riding toys for the smaller children.

For the older kids there is a ping pong table and foosball table in the garage and a tire swing on an old oak tree. They will also love hanging out in the bedroom lofts!

3 Days in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this house!!! We loved Yosemite and we loved Mariposa. For the house, the solitude was wondrous and I don't think I can return to showering or bathing indoors. I can not say enough about the house, it was exactly what we needed! Yosemite was Majestic (as always) and Mariposa was the friendliest most inviting town and has a real gem of a restaurant in Savoury. This house was perfectly positioned (15 minutes from Mariposa, 45 from Yosemite East Gate) and we could not have had a more wondrous vacation, Thank you for sharing your Home, Mark & Allison. We will definitely have to come back, 3 days was not near enough!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this property and the time we spent here.

The house was spotlessly clean, incredibly comfortable, and better equipped than any property we have ever stayed in. The extra touches such as the swings in the garden, the table tennis table and the children's toys made such a difference. The owners clearly love their house, and want their visitors to do so too. In addition, the owners were exceptionally helpful, prompt and reliable in answering emails and providing additional information as required.

The peaceful and beautiful setting of the property is another major feature. You are surrounded by trees, with deer wandering around and beautiful birds to spot. It was a great way to experience a taste of the wilderness in comfort!

We used the property as a base from which to explore Yosemite. This did mean over an hour's drive every day, but the drive was beautiful, and we appreciated the peace and quiet of the house after sharing Yosemite with crowds of other visitors each day!.

We also really liked Mariposa. It is a town of great character and charm, with some lovely restaurants.

We would love to come back one day.

I couldn't get the star rating to work, but would give this property 5 starts without a doubt.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time at the OakStone house. My kids love the tire swing, the backyard bath tubs and the playroom loft area. There was a deer sighting at the front door. My son has been saying that he wants to go back since we come home.

The house is clean, well designed and has everything you need. Wifi is fast and reliable. Not far from Yosemite and it is a nice drive. We will definitely come back. Mark and Allison, thanks!!

Absolutely perfect! I will stay here again!

  • 5 of 5
Bottom line up front: We loved it here! I would recommend this to anyone, and we will stay here again!

This place is amazing! If you have kids, it's awesome. If you don't have kids, it's awesome. Mark and Allison have a beautiful home that is unique and relaxing. My family and I couldn't have asked for a better trip.

When we arrived, Mark already had the fire going for us and helped us find some things to do in Yosemite since this was our first time there. It's obvious he is committed to guests enjoying themselves, and he is very friendly.

My parents joined my wife and I and 3 kids (4,2, and 1). This place is set up perfectly for kids. There was not a moment they and we weren't entertained. When it came time to relax, the deck looking over the 3-4 acres provided a wonderful respite. After having our fill of the brightest starry sky I've seen in a long time, we relaxed in the Great Room by the fire.

Yosemite is only about a 45 minute drive away, and it's a beautiful drive. I liked staying a little further away rather than in the park because it was a lot less touristy. Nearby Mariposa has groceries and is a nice little town to explore if you have some extra time.

Thanks, Mark and Allison, for letting us stay at your wonderful home.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
The OakStone house is great, we enjoyed it a lot with a group of 6 adults that hiked through Yosemite during the day and relaxed & dined at the house in the evenings. Let me list some of the great features that might not be obvious from the description:
- modern & spacious house
- automatic outdoor lights (useful when you arrive at night)
- code based locks, better than having to share one key if you are with multiple cars coming/leaving at different times
- huge garden with full Sierra nature experience (birds, turkeys, ...)
- outdoor shower and two outdoor hot tubs with a great garden view (a deer entertained two of us while tubbing :) )
- large bbq grill
- beautiful patio for outside dining & relaxing, including outdoor speakers connected to the stereo system
- sound system with audio cable for iphone & co, so you can use your music, spotify, pandora etc.
- flawless wifi
- wood stove for cold days
- large upstairs play area for kids, with all kinds of toys and books
- ping pong & fusball tables in the garage
- dart game on the patio
- kitchen with everything (multiple coffee options!)
- nice bedrooms
- wonderful master bathroom
- bedrooms & baths prepared like in a 4 or 5 star hotel (lots of towels, soaps, etc.)

As someone mentioned in the guest book: the owners thought of everything, all the little details!

Fully recommended!

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone! It was fully-equipped for the family get together that we planned. There wasn't anything this property lacked: close enough to town, close enough to Yosemite, space, cleanliness, amenities, etc. The ping pong table and foosball was a big hit for our competitive family. There is an abundance of childrens toys for the little ones also. Thank you to the owners so much for the thought and hard work they've put into this home! We will be back soon.
