Overview

About the property

Mountain Views 3 bed 2 bath (sleeps max. 8 people)

Mariposa Ridge Retreat is a ten-acre hilltop home with panoramic views of the seasonal snow capped peaks in Yosemite and the quaint village below. Located just 1.5 miles outside of the historic Gold mining County seat of Mariposa, the 'Mother of California's Counties.' We are 38 miles from Yosemite National Park, and just ten minutes from the Merced River which winds along Highway 140 for 23 miles into the Park. One of the most scenic drives on the planet. Don't miss the river drive into YOSEMITE!

The home was built in 2005 and features a King Suite, a Queen bedroom and two full-size double beds in the third bedroom. There are extra twin futons & bedding for a small upcharge. There are two full baths. The master has a larger soaking tub. There is a 500 square foot deck with six foot circular HOT SPRINGS Spa overlooking the Mariposa Valley along with picnic table, umbrella and a charcoal barbecue. The water comes from a deep mountain well fed by year-round Sierra snowpack. Roam the ten hilltop acres along with deer and wild Sierra birds.

Bring your clothes and food (linens and towels are provided) and come home to peaceful mountain air and escape the rat race below. (Mariposa is the ONLY California County without a single Traffic Light!). PLEASE NOTE: Check-in at 3pm day of arrival and Check-out at 11 am. Be sure to visit our website for complete info.

Driving directions, parking instruction, home access information are given after full payment and picture ID is received. Our property information can be found at vrbo #90993. Call our business contact phone at (805)438-4444.

Big holidays are 3 night minimums to accommodate our cleaning service.

Wonderful place, great view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time using the comforts of Mariposa Ridge Retreat as a base for our visit to Yosemite. The drive to Yosemite is about 45 minutes but enjoyable. The home has everything you will need and is quite secluded. The deck has a great view from the top of the ridge and hot tub was very welcome after hiking all day. So many stars at night! The owners are great people.

Perfect for our 3 generation family time at Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

Mariposa Ridge Retreat was the perfect setting for our family. Very convenient to glorious Yosemite and wonderful to come back to at the end of the day. We loved the view, the deck and the hot tub. We grilled out and ate breakfast in and the kitchen met all our needs. The 13 and 9 yr. old explored the property and looked for wild animals. One family member did see a fox early one morning. House was very clean and master bath is amazing. We highly recommend this property. I should also mention it was very quiet. No trucks were heard!

Heavenly, for sure!

  • 5 of 5

Mariposa Ridge Retreat was wonderful. Quiet, clean, very nicely set up and the hot tub was my husband's favorite part! He was in it 3 times a day at least. We made day trips into Yosemite National Park everyday, so the location was perfect. An excellent retreat for sure.
