Overview

Mariposa House Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps up to 6)

The Ponderosa House is ideal for a relaxing mountain get-away or the perfect accommodation for exploring nearby Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House makes a wonderful retreat that is peaceful and relaxing in a beautiful foothill setting. It is perfectly situated for quick access to Yosemite, white water rafting on Merced River, wildlife viewing, wildflower viewing, skiing Badger Pass, or just enjoying the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The Ponderosa House comfortably sleeps up to 6 with all the comforts of home. Two bedrooms with queen size beds and one bedroom with a double size bed.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are light and airy. The house is tastefully decorated with many Yosemite themed photos. Wireless DSL is available for those needing to be connected. Washer and dryer is ready for those requiring fresh clothes. There is plenty of free parking on site.

The gourmet kitchen is open and spacious with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and completely stocked with cooking and baking tools. There is plenty of counter top space to prepare for your day’s adventure.

Outdoor space includes propane BBQ, hot tub, and al fresco dining seating to enjoy the wonderful natural surroundings. The Ponderosa House has abundant open green space.

The gorgeous drive through the Merced River Canyon brings you to Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House is conveniently located in the community of Midpines close to the Highway 140 corridor. The Yosemite National Park boundary is a 25-mile drive along the “all weather highway” which follows the Wild and Scenic Merced River (37 miles to Yosemite Village). The gold rush town of Mariposa is only 10 miles to the west. Merced is 45 miles, and the Fresno airport is a 90-minute drive. The Merced River Recreation Area (Briceburg) is less than 8 miles away.

Cozy, well-appointed home on the road to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in wooded quiet road (but owners are across the street if needed). All amenities were provided except food that can be picked up in Mariposa, about 20 minutes away. Quite frankly, our family only spent the nights there since we were out and about seeing all the sights near there such as mining and mineral museums, horseback riding and wineries in Murphys, Railroad roundhouse in Jamestown, as well as Yosemite and all of its mountains and valleys.

Amazing time with family!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. Far enough from tourists and close enough to the valley to be there within the hour. The owners responded very quickly to questions we had about the Ponderosa House via email. It was amazing to sit in the hot tub late at night with all stars shining brightly. We will be back in the future for sure!

Ponderosa house at Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days here right after Christmas. The house was perfect for 4 adults and 2 young children. We enjoyed the hot tub and dark sky nights after spending our days in Yosemite. House was well-appointed, very clean, tastefully and comfortably furnished. We loved making breakfasts and dinners "at home". Upon arrival, we found a minor issue with power in one of the bedrooms; the owners responded to our call immediately and took care of the problem in minutes. While the owners live nearby ( good in case of emergencies), we did not see them and they totally respected our privacy. We felt that we had the place to ourselves. I hope we can come back again sometime. I would definitely stay here again!

Ponderosa Haven

  • 5 of 5

We honeymooned here and were not let down on any front. We found the home to be exactly how it was presented. We played horseshoes, hiked Yosemite twice, and enjoyed the tub. The kitchen is very roomy and we found eating in to be preferred.

You won't regret it!!
