Why beth savage chose Mariposa
We think this home is in the perfect spot! It's a great location, midway between Mariposa and Oakhurst. Both Mariposa and Oakhurst are great towns, but with differing amenities and feel. Mariposa, 10 miles away, is picturesque, quaint and smaller, with interesting museums and several good dining choices. It's the closest town to the west entrance of Yosemite Park and the famous Yosemite Valley. (The west entrance of Yosemite, along Highway 140, is 38 miles from this rental home.) Oakhurst, 16 miles away, is the closest town to the south entrance of Yosemite (The south entrance of Yosemite, along Hwy 41, is 32 miles from this rental home). Just inside the south entrance is the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias (FYI: this grove is closed for renovations until June 2018) and the Wawona area with its grand historic Wawona Hotel/restaurant. There are inviting natural river-swimming areas, pleasant hikes and the expansive Pioneer Yosemite History Center with historic buildings, carts and carriages on display, horseback and carriage rides, and a working blacksmith shop. Delicious all-you-can-eat BBQ picnics are served weekly on the lawn of the Wawona Hotel on Saturday evenings all summer. Oakhurst has additional amenities like a multiplex movie theater and a multitude of shopping venues, grocery stores and dining choices. It is also near the Sugar Pine Railroad (a historic full-size steam locomotive providing narrated family-oriented excursions through the mountain slopes plus a picnic and gold panning lessons). On the way home from the south entrance, visit picturesque Bass Lake (23 miles from this rental home), with its many sandy beaches, hiking opportunities, boat rentals and restaurants. Bass Lake water is a comfortable temperature for swimming in the summer.

July 4th reunion
Our family stayed at the Lodge the first week of July for a family reunion. Family traveled from England, Ohio, California, Arizona and Washington. The lodge is amazing and Beth is the most gracious, friendly and accommodating manager/owner.
The lodge is comfortable, roomy and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well stocked. The area is quiet and peaceful.
The kids spent most of their time in the swimming pool as well as enjoying the jungle gym and the 75" TV with surround sound.
Our family relaxed on the roomy deck, in the hot tub and enjoyed the game room.
A special part of our stay was Beth's miniature pony, Buddy. The kids were able to pet, comb and walk Buddy. Fun time for adults as well.
After a long day in Yosemite we arrived back at the lodge to find a beautiful bouquet of gladioli Beth picked from her garden. What a thoughtful gesture.
Our family hasn't stopped talking about the beautiful house and how much fun we all had.
I would definitely recommend the lodge for a large group.
Wish I could give more than five stars on the rating.
Pictures dont do it justice!
We had an amazing time at Yosemite Pines Lodge. The owner was so helpful and the property was beautiful. The house was very spacious with super comfy beds and even the extra cots were comfortable to sleep on. The house itself was so beautiful with a huge deck and fire pit, an enormous kitchen, and plenty of activities to entertain yourself while at the house. We were living like kings. The pictures can't do this gorgeous property justice and we can't wait to come again!
It was our first time experiencing a vacation like this and it definitely exceeded our expectations. Everything was clean, organized, and the customer service was excellent. Owner responds to any requests or accommodations quickly. Overall and amazing experience and we will be here again!
Merced River Raft trip
Beth was very nice and took time to walk us through the house and brief us on everything. We had a wonderful stay here. The house was very clean, very spacious for the 10 of us(all adults) and the kitchen was well equipped. We especially loved the big game room and the BIG hot tub.
We would definitely go back. Highly recommend this house!
