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.

This home is very comfortable, the kitchen is very nice, fully equipped. Every room has a heater. Nicely decorated. I would rent this house again next time I come back to yosemite.
We had a wonderful time on our pre Holiday getaway. The house was just perfect! Close enough to get out and explore the Yosemite beauty and settle in for a wonderful night under the magnificent starry skies! Everything and more from what we expected.
My wife and I spent Christmas at the Ponderosa house this year. The house is super cute and had all the amenities one would need. It was pretty cold outside and the house did have a difficult time warming up even with the multiple heaters. The water did stop working at one point, but Rod was great and came over right away to get it working again. It's about a 30-45 minute drive straight into the park which is wonderful. We spent two days exploring and the snowfall made it feel like we were back home in the Midwest. Such a beautiful place. Thank you guys for being such nice hosts.
Just so everyone knows there is a tiny single pump gas station if you make a left on the 140 about a quarter of a mile down the road. They have all the basic food and items one would need if you forgot something. You don't have to drive all the way back into Mariposa.
This is a clean, charming, well-equipped home. It is a pretty short drive from Yosemite, and it's also very close to lovely Mariposa. The owners were great to work with and communicated well. Great experience.
My wife and I stayed with two other couples and all enjoyed our time at the Ponderosa House. The home is well appointed, furnished, and comfortable. Gourmet kitchen as well! We soaked in the hot tub one evening and viewed the stars! Recommended but be sure you are staying with good friends or family as the bathroom situation requires access through two of the three bedrooms, so we left our door open to accommodate our friends during the night.
The ponderosa house was exactly what we needed. We were preparing for our wedding in yosemite and needed a spacious kitchen to make 25 pies. It was perfect! And it was a quiet place for us to escape to.
