The Ponderosa House is ideal for a relaxing mountain get-away or the perfect accommodation for exploring nearby Yosemite National Park.

It is perfectly situated for quick access to Yosemite, white water rafting on Merced River, wildlife viewing, wildflower viewing, skiing Badger Pass, or just enjoying the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The Ponderosa House comfortably sleeps up to 6 with all the comforts of home. Two bedrooms with queen size beds and one bedroom with a double size bed.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are light and airy. The house is tastefully decorated with many Yosemite themed photos. Wireless DSL is available for those needing to be connected. Washer and dryer is ready for those requiring fresh clothes. There is plenty of free parking on site.

The gorgeous drive through the Merced River Canyon brings you to Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House is conveniently located in the community of Midpines close to the Highway 140 corridor. The Yosemite National Park boundary is a 25-mile drive along the “all weather highway” which follows the Wild and Scenic Merced River (37 miles to Yosemite Village). The gold rush town of Mariposa is only 10 miles to the west. Merced is 45 miles, and the Fresno airport is a 90-minute drive. The Merced River Recreation Area (Briceburg) is less than 8 miles away.

Wonderful Yosemite Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family getaway at the Ponderosa House. The house is beautiful and had all the amenities that my family needed and was looking for. My mom and children loved the tranquil backyard and the quiet was just heaven. And the drive to the El Portal entrance of Yosemite was a beautiful, quiet drive and a lot closer than we expected.Thank you.

March get away at the Ponderosa House

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful weekend that included staying at the Ponderosa House and visiting Yosemite. The weather was rainy and cool for a portion of the weekend so each evening upon returning to the house it was a treat to be able to use the hot tub! The home is spacious and welcoming and was a perfect place of the 6 of us to stay. We would like to perhaps stay another time in the future if possible. Thank you for renting the home to us over this past weekend.

Clean, elegant house close to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 adults and 4 kids in mid February.

The house is about 45 min from the valley and its a beautiful drive into Yosemite.

We can absolutely recommend the property.

If you visit in the winter make sure to bring warm socks and clothing.

Very good accommodations for Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We like to prepare our own food and the kitchen was great for this. Bedrooms were quiet and private with comfortable bedding. Living area was great for a group of 6 with lots of games to enjoy as well. Hot tub was great for after a long hike in the park. It was clean and heated up fast. It rained for an entire day and we passed a content day at this house waiting for better weather. Location is ideal, as it's only 15 mins to downtown Mariposa and 45 mins to Yosemite. I would stay again.
