About Chris and Cheryl Jennings

We have three homes on our property and live in one of them. Cheryl grew up and raised her family in Mariposa, and is the proud mother of two and grandmother of 13 grandchildren. Most of her family resides in the Mariposa area. Cheryl is well known in the community and has worked for CAL FIRE for 20+ years. Chris has always had a knack for entertaining people and was a guide for Salmon and Steelhead fishing on California's most pristine rivers. As a guide his sole mission was to give his customers a once in a lifetime experience that they would remember forever. We are approaching the vacation rental business with the same goals. We want you to have everything you need, so you don't have to worry about the little things and can focus on your vacation itself. We will be here to help you with anything you need.

Chris and Cheryl Jennings purchased this house in 1995

Why Chris and Cheryl Jennings chose Mariposa

This beautiful property has been in our family for many years. We built The Whispering Pines House in 2001 so that we could be close to my Grandmother. We took care of her for 11 years before her Alzheimer’s got so severe that she needed more care than we could give her. She is now in a beautiful, quiet, private home with 6 other ladies that she has fun with and is able to receive the medical attention she requires. She is still a huge part of our family and we love her dearly. Now we are choosing to share our scenic home with others and provide them with a wonderful vacation spot in our beautiful country we are proud to call home.

What makes this house unique

Our property provides the peace and serenity of the mountains and we are thankful to call this our home. If you sit outside and just listen or look you will hear the birds singing and you might even see a deer, fox, turkey, or possibly a bear. Over the years we have seen them all. The town of Mariposa offers small town quaintness with its unique shops and local history. The surrounding areas, including Yosemite, offer many outdoor adventures and you will never get bored here if you enjoy the outdoors.

Great Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The house was even more spacious and beautiful than it looked in the pictures. Our teenage kids took one look at it, lit up, and said, "We really get to stay here for two days?" That was before we showed them the game room with ping-ping and air hockey. All of a sudden, our trip sounded painfully short and we wished we could take another day off. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly. They showed us where to find everything we needed in the house and made sure we were all settled before staying out of our way for the rest of our stay. The kitchen is great and fully stocked. The sofa beds in the living room were comfy and easy to set up. Everything was clean, and they left us a TON of clean, fluffy towels. It was about an hour and a half drive into Yosemite Valley where we spent the day.

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle, We are glad the kids had a great time, ping pong and air hockey are fun for all ages. You must of hit some traffic on your trip to yosemite valley, it is on 29.9 miles to the entrance, and just a few more miles to the valley. Hope to see you again in the future.

We loved this place! It's very big, open and well-laid out. Chris was a very friendly, attentive. It was easy to hop into Yosemite each day that we were there. We enjoyed a nice dinner in Mariposa too. We'd definitely rent this house again!

Perfect accommodations, good location to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, fully equipped house, with lots of space for our dog to run. We needed a place that would allow us to leave our dog while we hiked in yosemite. The owners were very nice and the house was spotless. It's about 35 minutes ti the east gate and about an hour form the south gate; well worth the drive given the amenities.

Perfect Yosemite National Park Vacation home

  • 5 of 5
I, my husband and 9 other friends stayed for the memorial day long weekend at the Whispering Pines. The house is lovely and exactly like in the pictures. I am glad that we went through the description when we were preparing for the trip because everything, literally everything you will need is made available. Plenty of kitchen items, linens, X Box (you read that right), you name it and you have it. The game room is amazing for a large group. The best part are the hosts. Chris accommodated the way we wanted the beds for our large group. We requested Chris to have the house ready earlier than the usual check-in time, he got extra help but made sure the house was all set up when we reached. Someone needed coffee and we just called to check if they had some in the home, in 10 minutes he was at the door with some coffee. We drove to the park everyday and came back to a wonderful accommodation-had a game night one night and barbecue on the second day. All in all, a great place to stay and strongly recommended by everyone in the group.

Owner's Response: Thank you Paavni,
We are so glad you and your group had a good time. We enjoyed having you, and we are happy the house had enough room for you and your friends. It was a pleasure working with you to get everything the way you wanted. I am sorry that we didn't have the coffee down there to begin with, but I appreciate you calling us to get some. We hope these memories will last a lifetime for you, your husband and friends. We hope to see you again, the park is beautiful in the winter.

Quiet, convenient, new near Yosemite

The property was well taken care of. The hosts were accommodating. The property was with any flaw. Quiet and large. This would be a great home filled or using just a couple of rooms due to its spaciousness.
