About Martin Foden
For many years in Silicon Valley I was a high tech marketeer. I often talked of one day going up into the mountains and forgetting to come back. Then a few years ago, after my last international trip, my son asked, "Dad, you keep talking about your mountain cabin. When are you going to do it?"
Martin Foden purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Martin Foden chose Mariposa
For 5 years I lived in an old small house up the street. Then one day walking down the street I got suspicious as to what had happened to the sale of this property. It didn''t look like anyone was going in or out. Turns out the sale had fallen through, just like my nice one a little further across the valley.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property is very special to me even though it is old and not very fancy. But it has great views, lots of room to roam and not only did I get myself a house to live in, I got a cottage to rent to you, and a big studio workshop to pursue my hobby Safari Gold jewelry business.

This cabin was an extension of Gods creation in Yosemite Park , which was our destination for our trip.
The cabin was quaint , on very peaceful property.
The owner Martin, was very welcoming. He provided us with excellent service.
A lovely tranquil location
We enjoyed our stay at this quaint cottage as it gave us an opportunity to relax and unwind amongst its peaceful surrounds.
Our host was very helpful and also gave us good advice on our visit to Yosemite. It is an easy and picturesque drive from the cottage.
A relaxing beautiful location, great gateway to Yosemite
Cosy cabin, enjoyed the tranquility. Martin has a great two day program for Yosemite. An early start (06:30-0700) gets you to the park to beat the crowds. Sit on the deck at the end of a big day and enjoy view.
Excellent. Thank you Martin!!
Cozy, well stocked, easy commute to yosemite
The home was well stocked with soap, towels, firewood for winter, and kitchen basics. It was a great place to rest and cook after long hard hikes at Yosemite. And great laundry facility. I would reccomend and stay again.
Beautiful scenery, comfortable cottage and a wonderful host.
Comfortable beds, Working Internet and TV, and close to National parks. The winery at the end of the road is charming and reasonably priced.
Martin is always Available for questions and help.
Thank you Shelly. I want all guests to enjoy the magic of my property and the magnificence of Yosemite.
We are adjacent Butterfly Creek Winery and its own spectacular setting. Wander down the lane and enjoy a glass from one of the premier Sierra Foothill wineries.
