About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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. We are walking distance to many great restaurants and downtown shops. The town of Mariposa offers many activities in the summer for travelers, such as live music and festivals. Just two blocks from public transportation, leave your car and avoid trying to find a parking spot in Yosemite.

We have just newly remodeled the house with local wood flooring.

About The Owner

Ken and Schree Yager meet in Yosemite and have chosen the area to raise our family. 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.

What makes this house unique

We are two blocks away from public transportation to Yosemite National Park

A wonderful place to come home to after a stroll and hiking in Yosemite.

  • 5 of 5

This great home has it all. Close to town and no more than 2 blocks from the bus station (YARTS). It had everything my three step kids, husband, toddler, and I needed for the three nights stay. I woke up early and took the car to Yosemite with provisions, and while waiting for the rest of the family to arrive later on the bus, I was able to get some ME time in Yosemite. At the end of the day it was nice to return to a comfortable home and comfy beds. I arrived back at the house prior to the clan and by the time they returned I had dinner ready and the meat ready for the grill. We could not ask for a better place to stay. Thank you Schree Yager!

Property was clean and spacious. Comfortable mattresses and great shower pressure. Close to town and grocery store. Very relaxing though we were in Yosemite most of the day. About an hour drive into the park in May.

Nice clean adequate accommodations with very comfy beds

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable adequate accommodations!

Two of the three beds are very comfy with mattress toppers and the third is quite firm so I'm not going to say whether that is good or bad because some people like it that way. This property has no frills and no personal touch to speak of but it has more than enough of the daily necessities to get you by including an ample supply of towels both bath and dish and an abundance of cookware even for a hearty cook like me. The covered patio and carport were a bonus because it rained our entire stay so we were able to load and unload our vehicle while staying dry and even use the grill during a torrential down pour. Each room has its own climate control which is very nice when traveling with friends or family that have different ideas of what a comfortable temperature is, but be warned, if you are unfamiliar with using these remote controlled units it may take you a few minutes to figure them out. We did not have any need to contact the owners after our arrival because they provided us with all the information we needed before our trip including visitor information for the local area and personal recommendations for dinning and sites to see. They did respond quickly to an answer we had had prior to booking so I'm confident they would have done the same had we been in the need during our stay.

Very Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family to stay on our first visit to Yosemite. The house was cute, comfy and clean. We were able to relax and sleep well and be right in the cute town of Mariposa. It was a lovely drive into Yosemite from there.

Downtown Mariposa offers many free music events in the Mariposa Art's Park. We are just a short walk from this venue. It is a great event for families or a romantic couple evening.
