Our home is located just off highway 140 on the way to Yosemite (22 miles from our front door). Big blue is easy to find and offers on/ off highway access.This Victorian home is very large and is great for family vacations. Each room is comfortable, charming, and has it's own private bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. The Family room spacious and stocked with wonderful books, games, antique treasures, a television, computer with wifi, and plenty of seating around the hearth. The kitchen is complete with all the necessities (and alot of extras!). Dine around the large family table in the dinning room, have breakfast in the sun room, or take your sandwich out to the wrap around porch.
We have taken great care in every detail, we want you to have all the comforts of home in an unforgettable place. Our yard and garden are most always blooming, our sheep and goats are very friendly.
Come stay! Enjoy Yosemite, Mariposa, and the gold country with rustic charm.
We have lived and worked in Yosemite for our entire lives and enjoy sharing all our knowledge about what the area has to offer. We live on site (a good distance from the rental!) and are happy to help. We love this area and are so blessed to be able to share a bit of the Sierra with our guests! Our hope is that you can enjoy our home, garden, and animals leaving your stay with lasting memories.
Nancy Pimentel purchased this farmhouse in 1996
We originally set out to run a bed and breakfast for all the visitors to Yosemite National Park. As time has moved on, we have too. This house is just too perfect as a vacation spot not to rent it to happy families to enjoy on their way to Yosemite.
*Private Bathrooms in each room
*very easy to find, yet private
*very close to Yosemite
This was the most fun Thanksgiving in years!!! Good friends, good food, great music; in a lovely blue house with the most wonderful artifacts to explore...thank you so much for all the work you've done to make this place spectacular.
Our family of 6 stayed here this past week. The house was a peaceful retreat from our hectic lives. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen well stocked. Bigger than imagined in pictures. Unique antiques at every turn. Loved the wrap around porch for early coffee and family talks.
We had an excellent stay at "The Big Blue" house! Flora was so nice and helpful. We wish we could have only enjoyed the house longer. We were so busy with trying to get into Yosemite we didn't get to enjoy the house as much as we wanted. The house is so charming and cozy. I love the decor. Anyone would have a great stay here! Another plus is Mariposa is only a few miles away with several restaurant options. Thanks again Aaron and Flora for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
The farmhouse was exactly as described. The pictures are also very accurate. It has a lot of space and was very comfortable for my family. It's located very near the main highway into Yosemite, but is still extremely quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
My husband and I rented the "big blue house" and gathered our children and their families for a wonderful, relaxing week together. We loved it that each family had their own bedroom and bathroom--their own space to retreat to, but the common areas were large enough for all us to gather comfortably. The house is beautiful, full of character, clean and spacious. Loved the big kitchen where many people could work together. We also used the outdoor BBQ. The washer and dryer were a help after days hiking and swimming in Yosemite Park. The owners were very helpful. This is a perfect home for a family reunion. It has a special place in our hearts and we hope to return soon.
Thank you for making your home so beautiful for the holidays; it was the perfect setting for our family get together. Aaron (Fred) and Flora were the perfect hosts and even found a local photographer to capture our special time together on really short notice. Thank you so much; you have no idea how wonderful Jim is and how talented. He captured moments that will last a lifetime for my family. We hope to rent your home again in the future and visit your wine bar.
Thank you again,
Rodney and Caren Bascherini
This house is so much more than what the write up describes. It actually has 2 suites-- one is downstairs with a large, beautiful bathroom and its own deck, the other is perfect for a family-- has a room with a queen bed and another room with bunks and its own bathroom, PLUS 3 more bedrooms--2 with double or queen beds and one with a set of 2 twins and each has its own bathroom. It is nicely furnished in a shabby chic decor with just the right touches to make it homey. Has a great living room, nice formal dining area, nice kitchen with all the things you need for meal preparation, a really nice TV room, a sunporch, a BBQ area, and a huge porch which wraps around two sides of the house. It is close enough to Yosemite to make it convenient to visit there but it could be a destination itself. We were a group of 7 friends-- we had plenty of space and we enjoyed every inch of it. I would highly recommend this home to families and groups of people who want to hang out together but still have space for themselves. There are stairs so people who are wheel chair bound might have problems getting into the house. All in all we loved the house and our only regret is that we did not get to stay there longer.
In addition to being located so close to Yosemite National Park our home is only 5 miles from the Beautiful Merced River! The river is great for hiking, swimming, whitewater rafting, and picnics.
Seven miles in the other direction is the darling historic town of Mariposa. This quaint Gold Rush town has superb dining, shopping, wine tasting, several small breweries, great night life, and so much history!
Many of our guests come to visit Yosemite and are pleasantly surprised at what else the Sierra foothills have to offer.
