We were very pleased with Quarry House and would absolutely recommend this property. My very first impression walking in was how clean everything was, and that it smelled very pleasant (no greasy, stale smells, etc.) Like other reviewers stated, the pictures don't fully reflect how nice this property is. I can't think of any other place I stayed where I saw so much attention to detail and where I felt the owner put so much of himself into it. My wife repeatedly commented on the good taste in decorating and nice little touches throughout.
I found Quarry House was outfitted with good quality, modern appliances that were well maintained. The furniture and beds seemed new and were in good condition and all the necessary linens were there. The listing says it sleeps eight, and we had a group of eight with our two families and were very comfortable. The layout of the house was such that we didn't feel cramped. However, any more would have been stretching things. The wifi internet connection was good and we had access to online services such as Netflix. There are no broadcast channels available, making Blue Ray / DVDs the alternative to online services. I also noted there is a ramp from the driveway to the front porch, which combined with the house being single story appeared to be reasonably accessible to people with disabilities.
I liked the location of the house, near the town of Mariposa. The town itself is small, though it does have a full service supermarket and several restaurants. Depending on traffic and road conditions, it takes about an hour to get to Yosemite Valley, going along a generally easy two-lane highway. Given the beauty of the drive to and from, that was not much of an issue. Quarry House is conveniently located for trips to Gold Country and near several recreation areas.
There were only a couple of things I found that might be off-putting to some people. What stands out is the expectation that renters leave the place clean, wash dishes, and launder the used linens. Being as how this is not the Ritz Carleton and is, in fact, a house that was fine by me. I would advise renters who like to throw parties, or people who don't like cleaning up to look elsewhere as they might be in for a surprise when they don't get some or all of their deposit back.
Seeing all the other positive reviews made me comfortable to choose Quarry House. After staying there, I can assure the positive reviews are accurate and this is the real thing.
