About the property

3 BR/2BA; large decks; gated & secluded; 7-acres in Sierra Foothills

Manzanita Hill is a beautifully furnished upscale vacation home, fully renovated in 2016. It has all-new flooring, paint, doors, cabinets, sinks, counter tops, windows, appliances and more. Located in the Sierra foothills, between Mariposa and Oakhurst, this home has convenient access to both the west and south entrances of Yosemite Park. There are great things to see and do inside both park entrances. Bass Lake is also nearby, with its sandy beaches, good swimming and boat rentals. We provide lots of detailed info at the home to help you enjoy your stay to the fullest. You're welcome to walk this 7-acre property along our private groomed hiking path, to enjoy the beautiful scenery both near and far! This open-floor-plan 3 bedroom / 2 bath home is augmented by ample outdoor living space. There is a large partially covered front deck and an even larger back deck where you can be immersed in quietude and beauty. You'll enjoy the attractive custom carpentry and stone work that has been done to make the back deck blend seamlessly into the surrounding granite boulders, trees and natural landscaping. At night you'll love the ambience of a majestic Manzanita tree that's all lit up! This home sleeps 8 comfortably, with two queen size beds, two single beds and a queen size sleeper couch. Hi-speed WIFI is provided, so bring your devices! The Verizon cell phone signal is strong and a land-line phone is also provided.

This home has a tasteful and warm historic-western-lodge decor that harmonizes beautifully. The living room includes accents of antique heirloom furniture in the midst of comfortable new upscale furnishings. There is even a real western saddle on display in the corner! A large flat screen TV is built into the rustic stone fireplace. The open and spacious fully equipped kitchen has quartz counter tops, ample hickory cabinets, new appliances, and everything you'll need for preparing and serving your meals. Comfort is assured with forced-air central heating and air conditioning throughout. You'll never run out of hot water with our instant on-demand water heater.

The large dining table seats six. The adjacent breakfast bar also seats six on comfortable padded stools. A nearby game table seats 4. All three bedrooms are down the hall and everyone has easy access to a bathroom. The master bedroom suite has a western/southwestern decor, the second bedroom has a prairie-style decor accented by an intricate heirloom quilt on display, and the third bedroom is more American with historic touches. (See photos and their captions for more detailed info about bedrooms and bathrooms.)

About Magdalena and Bruce Beall

Manzanita Hill is locally managed, on the owners' behalf, by Bruce and Magdalena Beall of Yosemite Vacation Rental Management. We're on call to respond to your needs and questions before, during and after your stay. We'll also supply you with information and answer your questions about things to see and do during your vacation to make it the best it can be, customized to your own needs and tastes.

Magdalena and Bruce Beall purchased this house in 2013

Why Magdalena and Bruce Beall chose Mariposa

We think this home is in the perfect spot! It's a great location, midway between Mariposa and Oakhurst. Both Mariposa and Oakhurst are great towns, but with differing amenities and feel. Mariposa, 10 miles away, is picturesque, quaint and smaller, with interesting museums and several good dining choices. It's the closest town to the west entrance of Yosemite Park and the famous Yosemite Valley. (The west entrance of Yosemite, along Highway 140, is 38 miles from this rental home.) Oakhurst, 16 miles away, is the closest town to the south entrance of Yosemite (The south entrance of Yosemite, along Hwy 41, is 32 miles from this rental home). Just inside the south entrance is the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias (FYI: this grove is closed for renovations until 2017) and the Wawona area with its grand historic Wawona Hotel/restaurant. There are inviting natural river-swimming areas, pleasant hikes and the expansive Pioneer Yosemite History Center with historic buildings, carts and carriages on display, horseback and carriage rides, and a working blacksmith shop. Delicious all-you-can-eat BBQ picnics are served weekly on the lawn of the Wawona Hotel on Saturday evenings all summer. Oakhurst has additional amenities like a multiplex movie theater and a multitude of shopping venues, grocery stores and dining choices. It is also near the Sugar Pine Railroad (a historic full-size steam locomotive providing narrated family-oriented excursions through the mountain slopes plus a picnic and gold panning lessons). On the way home from the south entrance, visit picturesque Bass Lake (23 miles from this rental home), with its many sandy beaches, hiking opportunities, boat rentals and restaurants. Bass Lake water is a comfortable temperature for swimming in the summer.

What makes this house unique

This home has been fully renovated, inside and out, over a 2 yr. period with great attention to detail and quality. The quiet large back deck is perfect for relaxing and family togetherness in a natural setting. It has a BBQ grill, outdoor dining tables and comfortable seating. This deck is built to blend seamlessly into the surroundings, wrapping tightly around the natural granite boulders, oak and manzanita trees. It has an attractive rock retaining wall and a privacy fence on one side keeping it intimate and separated from the driveway area. You'll love the ambience at night when a majestic Manzanita tree up the hill is illuminated for your enjoyment!

Enjoy strolls on your own private hiking path amidst the beauty of this 7 acre property, or play horseshoes in the side yard.

Manzanita Hill is a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Manzanita Hill house was a perfect choice for our two families, visiting Yosemite! We had a short but very relaxing stay at this beautiful home! The well stocked kitchen made it easy to make our meals, the rooms were so nicely appointed, we felt very comfortable and completely relaxed. We highly recommend staying here!

The property owners have thought of everything! Clear instructions for the house and directions for the park. Being able to stay in this beautiful home made our family visit so enjoyable. We could relax and visit and not be on top of each other. We had a wonderful time! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks so much!"

This is a lovely house, so well equipped and organized. Thanks to Bruce and Magdalena for their kind assistance. I loved the candles in the fireplace, so cozy. Mariposa is a very friendly town. Also loved the wildlife in the yard. Wonderful vacation! Thanks. 😋

Beautiful place to kick up your feet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It was very clean and a great place to relax after a long day in Yosemite. We were affected by the Detwiler fire, but the response from the owner and property manager was very impressive. We are looking forward to staying here again!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you were able to enjoy a little quality time at our home and in the park. It's so unfortunate that you had to cut your stay short due to the power outage in our area. You were a pleasure and we truly hope you will come back to visit us again in the future!
