About Ansley Singer

We both grew up in Yosemite Valley. Kelly and I now work for the National Park Service with the the Fire Management Program. We love to spend our time skiing at Badger Pass (inside the park) and rafting the Merced River.

Ansley Singer purchased this house in 1990

Why Ansley Singer chose California

The owner chose this house as a place to retire to after a career with the National Park Service. As with any piece of real estate, location is a critical factor. This property is located on a paved road close to town and within an easy drive to 2 of the entrances to Yosemite N. P.

What makes this house unique

The inside of this home is beautiful, comfortable, modern, and welcoming but nothing compares the property outside, grassy lawns, huge decks, the pool for hot days, the BBQ and the patio dining and living room sets make it hard to go indoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is immaculate! The lawn is lush green, the pool is refreshing after a long day in Yosemite, the gameroom was a hit with the kids. We enjoyed making dinner each night in the beautiful kitchen. Thank you for a great Yosemite Vacation, we will be back!

Gorgeous property!

This is a wonderful place for a large family with something for everyone. Beautifully maintained and equipped with all the special touches that make a vacation fun. My husband's family thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities. I would recommend this spot to anyone!

Pleasantly surprised!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Black Oak Ranch! We spent most of our time on the deck as it was just so nice to get away from it all under the big trees listening to the birds and watching the occasional cow on an adjoining property. Our two daughters had a blast playing in the pool and chasing all of the baby frogs in the grass (heads up, there were a lot so watch your step!)! The house was very clean, well stocked, and our home away from home for four nights. We had a blast venturing off to Yosemite during the day and always looked forward to coming back to the house to relax! It was an added bonus to meet the owner, Glen as he popped by to add chemicals to the pool. What a wonderful man! Just as a suggestion, we would recommend a new bed in the master as it creaked every time you moved and also improved communication from the managers as they never returned my phone calls and it took several emails before receiving a response regarding questions prior to booking. Other than that, we would definitely recommend Black Oak Ranch!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

When I booked this house I had no idea how beautiful it would actually be! The booking process was easy and the property manager very easy to deal with!

The house and property are gorgeous, exceptionally clean....overall we had a wonderful stay! The house had everything we needed, is very well stocked with cooking and eating utensils as well as some spices making cooking very easy. The inside of the house looks fairly new with renovations including an updated and modern kitchen!

The bedrooms are nice size with comfortable mattresses and bedding, the bathrooms are well stocked with towels as well.

The outdoor living space is wonderful! Plenty of tables and chairs to sit and enjoy the quiet of the area and watch the hummingbirds! Beautifully landscaped as well! The pool was a plus although we were there before it actually had a chance to warm up!

We also got to meet the owner of the property while there....thank you Mr. Glen for opening your home to us!

A bit farther out from Yosemite National Park than I originally thought but the ride was beautiful and it didn't stop us from traveling back and forth to it. Not far from the town of Mariposa and we enjoyed the local restaurants!

Highly, highly recommend this property for your stay!

Everything you would ever need

  • 5 of 5

Black Oak Ranch is big, comfortable and well stocked with so many things that one might need. It's close to Yosemite, very close to Mariposa but is still quiet and distant from noise and light pollution. Our visit included 3 couples and one single person (everyone was comfortable with room to stretch out. We used the gas grill several times. The kitchen is modern and had everything we needed to prepare full meals.
