Completely refurbished in mountain cabin style with American Indian decor with new furniture, linens, crockery, cutlery as well as new fridge and microwave, this little cottage is nestled in between some big trees and is down the winery lane from street. So quiet except for the birds. Outdoor patios and BBQ area to choose from. Eat each meal each day in a different spot as you look out across the meadow and big seasonal pond, as well as the overgrown hillside across the river.
Almost in the middle of Triangle Rd that cuts across top of Mariposa so there is easy access to Yosemite's West gate (Hwy 140) for the valley floor, or Yosemite's South gate (Hwy 41) for access to Wawona, Big Trees and Badger Pass ski area. Take a break from Yosemite and hike our own property, or just take a book or guitar and picnic in one of the amazing spots by our own seasonal river, or simply relax under a big oak tree.
We share the Winery Lane for access with Butterfly Creek Winery, so if you wander a little further down you can explore this lovely winery. It is the biggest in the area, which isn't saying much, but they have won many awards.
Yes it is central California and gets hot in summer - but this cabin is an oasis from the heat thanks to the big cedars and oak. And at night we are above the fog and town lights, and below the snow (except a few days in Winter), so spectacularly clear nights are the norm for all star and moon gazers.
Owner lives nearby on same grounds to serve any needs or questions. We have been visiting Yosemite for over 30 years. Long before we moved to this area we love so much. There is even a washer and dryer on the patio of main house, but who does laundry on vacation.
Of course, it also has Dish TV, a Sony DVD system and Wifi. Detailed Guide Book and manager will take care of all your questions about what to do or where to go. In Winter, enjoy a wood burning fire in the stove insert. In Summer, living room has A/C for those few really sweltering days when the shade and new double pained windows are insufficient. Crib bed and high chair available. Decent size above ground pool is now open for the season. Extra large pool towels provided too.
In summary, small cottage but cute as a button with multiple outdoor dining patios, fabulous views, extremely quiet, very safe and peaceful, big gardens to hang out in, all for less than a room in town.
