Why Jeff Bohnen chose Yosemite Area

One of my best friends bought a property nearby about 15 years ago and introduced me to the Yosemite area. On my very first visit, I was absolutely in awe of the beauty of this region and knew that I wanted to have a vacation home for my family to enjoy as well. Since then we have had both family and friends come up to our home to enjoy and make memories of their own. The house is just 7 miles from the mining town of Mariposa and just 40 miles to Yosemite Valley.

What makes this estate unique

This place is Awesome!! There's so much to see and explore on this 14 acre private estate. This handcrafted house is one of a kind. Walk out the front door and you will get a 1950s country western feel. Walk out the other door and it feels like you are at a resort. Once used as a family farm, there are barns, chicken coops and many other buildings to explore on this property. This old world charm house features 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom upstairs, with fantastic views out of all the windows. Enjoy the private suite downstairs with 1 king and 1 sofa bed and bathroom. The large pool house suite sleeps 6 and has 1 queen bed 1 sofa bed and a loft full bed and bathroom. Right out the door is the spa and pool overlooking postcard views from the Cabana. Outdoor living and dining on one of our 3 decks. Enjoy our outdoor screened in picnic/BBQ room with no bugs while eating your meals. Beach setting right next to a picturesque pond with enormous granite boulders surrounding it. Take a hike over the bridge and up one of the trails to find breathtaking views of the great Sierra Mountains. Visit Butterfly Creek Winery, just 5 minutes away. Town of Mariposa is just 7 miles away. Short 40 mile drive to Yosemite Valley Waterfalls. July 2012 is the first time to rent out this vacation home outside of our family and close friends. This place is so beautiful that we want to share it with everyone. There is a lot to see and do on the property. Old barns and buildings to explore. It is truly a one of a kind property and we think that your family will always remember this vacation home.

Incredible! Jeff has thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a lot of properties and this was, by far, the cleanest and best! All the amenities and conveniences necessary to have a wonderful time! We spent most of our time at Yosemite but wish we would have allowed more time to simply enjoy this incredible property! Our best family vacation yet!

Amazing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect! We enjoyed being there as much as being out sightseeing. Jeff has taken much time and thought into every detail on the property. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and can't wait to go back! We were disappointed we only stayed 5 days, next time we will be staying longer!

This property was amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the property. The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the setting. The house and pool house were spacious for 11. The interior was very clean and the beds slept great. The property is only about a 5 minute drive to Mariposa and also convenient to reach Yosemite. The hot tub was especially relaxing after long days of hiking. All in all, I would definitely recommend this property.

Little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing, every inch of the property was well cared for and maintained, the landscaping was beautiful, all the little extra details inside was special the gingerbread doorframe to the rustic wood doors and handles, the outside patio decking and walk ways were great for the wheelchair. I loved when the outdoor lights came on at dusk automatically. We explored the property enjoyed the easy trails to walk and all the places to sit and read, relaxing, take in the view were great. Everyone had a great time of all the places I have booked over the last 10 years this by far has been the best I can't wait to come back again.
