We built Mariposa Ridge Retreat as our vacation home and have had a wonderful 9 years meeting and greeting folks from all over the world...we spend a few days each month 'getting away from' our everyday work schedule...our main home is in Santa Margarita, Ca. a few miles north of San Luis Obispo.
Steve & Susan Lach purchased this chateau / country house in 2005
We fell in love with area...it is so beautiful and peaceful.
Decompress from stress, rest, peacefulness, fresh air, serenity.
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.
My husband and I had a great time at Mariposa Ridge Retreat. The house was clean and spacious. The hot tub was great and got very hot! If you are looking for a nice, quiet getaway, this could be your place. The owners were very quick to respond if you had a question. However, my one complaint is that I emailed about 2 weeks after our visit to inquire about how we were to get our $100 refundable deposit, and I was told to keep an eye out in the mail as they send a check. It is not one month after our stay, and I have not received the refund. I emailed one more time to ask if it had been mailed or when to expect it to be mailed, and the only response I got was the same as before "keep an eye out for a check in the mail". They did not answer my question on WHEN it was/will be sent. I would have thought that a refundable deposit would have been returned well before an entire month of your visit. So, we're still "keeping our eye out" and hope it comes soon!
My wife and I took our family of four boys and a girlfriend to stay for two nights so we could be close to Yosemite. We found the home warm and inviting, with plenty of room, a well stocked kitchen with all the right utensils and cookware. It was very clean and had plenty of pillows and blankets for everyone. The hot tub was amazing, and the view from the deck at night under the stars was breathtaking. Mariposa is just a short drive away with great restaurants and a grocery store to meet our needs. Thank you!
My husband and I stayed here for four nights with two other couples and had a wonderful time! The home was clean, well stocked, beds comfortable and the view from the back deck was amazing. Mariposa Ridge is very private and the nights were very quiet and restful. The drive to Yosemite was about 45 minutes but the scenery along the way was well worth seeing. The town of Mariposa was charming and there are several wonderful restaurants and shops. All in all we had a great time staying here and I would recommend this rental to anyone!
My family and I had a great stay at this lovely home. It was about an hour drive to Yosemite and the drive is beautiful! The house was clean and comfortable and came with everything we needed. The hot tub was great after long days hiking in Yosemite. Had a good internet connection and Dish TV too. Loved watching the sun rise on the porch while enjoying our morning coffee. Had deer in the front yard one morning. Many good restaurants in town just a few minutes away. We ate at Happy Burger and at the 1850 Restaurant - both were VERY good. Grocery store in town with a great beer and wine selection. Also picked up donuts one morning at Donuts A Go Go - yum! The Lach's were very good at communicating with us and made our stay very satisfying. This was a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it.
There is absolutely NOTHING to complain about in regard to this house. We read the reviews and cannot understand the negative remarks. There is privacy, beauty, serenity, and having no internet nor cell service for a week was WONDERFUL! The hot tub was a welcomed site after the long days in Yosemite. Having our own place to come back to and enjoy the peaceful setting was exactly what we were looking for.
The house was spotless when we arrived. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms were comfortable and decorated beautifully. If I have to find something to find that is negative is that the couch was too darn comfortable and hard to get out of. LOL. I hope anyone who is considering going to Yosemite, will stay here. The location is perfect! Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!
There is a zip line at the edge of town and it has 7 runs and is an absolute blast for the entire family...209 742 3493...ask for Brian or Vicki and tell them Steve & Sue sent you...!!!
