Overview

Midpines House Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps up to 6)

The Ponderosa House is ideal for a relaxing mountain get-away or the perfect accommodation for exploring nearby Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House makes a wonderful retreat that is peaceful and relaxing in a beautiful foothill setting. 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 gourmet kitchen is open and spacious with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and completely stocked with cooking and baking tools. There is plenty of counter top space to prepare for your day’s adventure.

Outdoor space includes propane BBQ, hot tub, and al fresco dining seating to enjoy the wonderful natural surroundings. The Ponderosa House has abundant open green space.

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.

Lovely, well looked after house in the country

  • 5 of 5

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.

All you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Relaxed comfortable stay!!

  • 4 of 5

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. !!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely Home. Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Extremely spacious accommodation with fabulous kitchen, dining and living areas, and outside space.

  • 4 of 5

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!
