Our house is located in historic Mariposa downtown and is a perfect location to return to during your visit to Yosemite National Park. We offer a fully equipped kitchen. The house has three bedrooms each with a queen bed, one bedroom has an attached half bath, and another with a sliding glass door to the back deck. The living room has a beautiful wood stove with views of the mountains above Mariposa. We are located on a quiet street and neighborhood.

About The Owner

Ken, a former rock climbing guide is the founder of Yosemite Climbing Association and sponsor of the Yosemite Facelift, an annual clean up of Yosemite National Park on Public Lands day. Schree works for a non-profit that connects youth to the natural world. We both love the park and the mountains and rivers that surround it.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Yosemite Area

We purchased this house because it is close to Yosemite National Park and we like the historic downtown Mariposa. We also enjoy the views of the mountains from the house.

Wonderful experience, at the perfect house/location!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this three bedroom house with my family and we all loved it. The house had everything we needed and plenty of space. It was walking distance to everything in Mariposa so that was a big plus for us :) Also, the host Schree was always available and lenient regarding our stay. The only downside is that we didn't get to spend enough time enjoying the home! We would definitely book this house again!

Yosemite was a fun family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Yosemite (2 adults, 2 teens). The house was a nice change after a week of hotel rooms. It had all the basic necessities for our stay. The Pioneer Market is small and pricey but offers a variety of basic items. We used the BART bus into Yosemite our first day (it is a 2 hour trip into the park and 1 1/2 hours out of the park). The BART pick up and drop off locations is convenient and costs $12 per person (exact change only, no credit cards and includes the park admission of $30 per family). Check for times on the BART website. We elected to drive into the park the second day as the bus was full, very warm (103 degrees outside), and two of us were car sick after the bus trip. In hindsight, we would have preferred to drive into the park both days (75 min. in the car). We would highly recommend that you drive into the park EARLY. We arrived about 10:00 and found plenty of parking. We would recommend you park beyond the visitor center so it is easier to exit the park and avoid the traffic jam around the visitor center later in the day. Once you park the car, go to the visitor center to get oriented to the park. The Yosemite bus service in easy to access, however, it get very very busy after lunch, especially the green line. The purple line only stops every 30 minutes at each location. Walking between stops on the purple line is not recommended as the road is very busy and the trails would be challenging for many people. The best view of El Capitan is from the bridal veil fall or the valley.

Comfy home near Yosemite Valley!

  • 5 of 5

This home in Mariposa was convienty located for day trips into Yosemite Valley. It was very spacious, comfortable, clean and convient. It is located in a small town close to the valley with great local restraunts that we enjoyed in the evening after a long days hike. There is also a great grocery store 5 min from the if you plan to cook or pack meals. Also during our stay, there was live music in the town square each night for locals to enjoy. It was very quaint.

I would recomend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay while they explore Yosemite. Keep in mind that is an hours drive to Yosemite entrance and an additional 30 min drive to the valley. This is commen.

Thanks again for oppening your home to us!
