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.

We enjoyed our stay in the woods! Very well maintained property with a large open kitchen, dining, living area. The kitchen was really well stocked with utensils & sauces & condiments ( these may have been left by other visitors?) My husband & I enjoyed the bottle wine left as a welcome gift for us.
Good washing machine & dryer.
The property is well located being about 40 mins easy drive to Yosemite & 15 min to decent food shop.
The hot tub was great to use after visiting Yosemite.
Overall a lovely property with lots of room.
The only slight draw back was the 1 bathroom was only accessed through a bedroom to each side. Anyone using the 3rd bedroom would have to go through a bedroom. Fine for us as we are 1 family but not ideal for couples wanting privacy.
This is a lovely home away from home. It is well equipped, and in a quite location, convent to the all weather road to Yosemite. We will stay again, if we need a home while visiting Yosemite.
This is a spacious comfortable place to stay!! Clean with lots of space. A bit "off the beaten path" but the advantage of quiet isolation. Sadly the terrible drought has taken its toll on the country side. Yosemite was awesome. !!
Everything was great! The beautiful room, the equiped kitchen, the garden, the hot tub. The hosts thout of everything. We had a great time eating every morning in the garden. Yosemite is not that far and it is worth the drive. There is a big supermarket in meriposa, 5 min drive. Great place to come with children.
Our family of 5 stayed here for a weekend. The house was beautiful inside and out, and situated on a quite, private lot at the end of a road. Everything we needed was there. The kitchen is spacious and remodeled. There was plenty of room for everyone to sit, to eat and to sleep. Just really nice. I recommend this house.
We found The Ponderosa house to be exactly as described. We loved the vast living space with cosy lounge area, large dining table and enormous kitchen. It was very peaceful and the outside space with barbecue, hot tub and outside eating area was perfect for us after our days in Yosemite. The only downside was there being just one bathroom and also a Jack and Jill style, so required some organisation for 6 guests! This aside, we had a fabulous stay and our hosts made sure that we had everything we needed, including a very welcome bottle of wine on our arrival!
