About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Conveniently located off Highway 49 in California's Gold Country, on a historic parcel known as Trabucco Gardens.

During the Gold Rush days, Trabucco Gardens was a parcel of land cultivated as a vegetable garden, while Forty-Niners discovered gold in the area. The historic rock walls on property mark the perimeter where the garden once grew.

The joy of discovery continues here today. Now you can discover the vast riches our universe has to offer. Trabucco Gardens, located on 17 private acres, provides you with a grand opportunity to stargaze in privacy using high-end, easy-to-use instruments. The robotic GO-TO telescopes are provided during your stay, and are included in the rental cost. This open, rural stretch of Highway 49, which is considered 'above the fog and below the snow', provides you with many clear night opportunities, even in winter.

The Trabucco Gardens House, newly constructed in 2007, is well appointed and available year round. Mariposa, the county seat, which is 10 miles south, has many essential services, along with many wonderful dining, shopping, and historic sight-seeing experiences. Yosemite National Park's West entrance is located about 45 minutes away up Highway 140 from Mariposa.

We provide housekeeping service (not daily maid service), before and after your stay. Courtesy towels, coffee, tea, cocoa, popcorn, and guest soap are provided to welcome you on the day you arrive. Personal key code access provides you with convenience and security. Along with a fold-away sofa bed in the living room, a queen-sized inflatable Aero-Bed is provided for extra sleeping accommodations.

Because of the rural nature of the area, there is abundant opportunity for wildlife sightings, such as deer, wild turkey, coyote, bobcat, birds of prey, and perhaps an occasional bear. Seasonal creeks at the North and South ends of the property flow during winter and spring. Make sure to leave some time in your schedule during your stay for stargazing too.

Using the telescopes, beautiful views of the Orion Nebula, Andromeda Galaxy, Hercules Cluster, and many other deep sky objects are yours to behold. The telescopes offer a TOUR mode, which takes you to the best and brightest objects in the sky during your stay. Stargazing doesn't get any easier than this.

What on EARTH are you waiting for? Go mining in the INFINITE FRONTIER above! An inspiring adventure of discovery for the young and the young-at-heart is here at Trabucco Gardens.

Beautiful and peaceful place

  • 4 of 5

This place was very beautiful and peaceful. It is a good distance from Yosemite so we were able to hike all day in the park and come back to enjoy a relaxing evening. Everything was labeled so we knew where to find things.

such a lovely place to stay at, thank you very much for providing this sweet home during our vacatio

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay at. It was not too far away from everything. Just about 10 mins drive to the gas station and grocery stores. Not too far away from the park. This was the first time me and my wife rent a single house close by the national park. It was a quiet and warm place to stay at. Highly recommend.

Great Stay!! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here during a road trip in January. The place was perfect and exactly as described. We didn't get to use the telescopes because of the weather, so I would recommend checking that before you go, but we had an amazing stay nonetheless. We walked around the property and found it to be very peaceful, quiet, and close enough for us to take a nice drive to Yosemite. Would highly recommend, we will definitely be back! :)

Cosy nice little place.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay and as usual we found everything clean, comfortable, well stocked and nicely decorated. The house is about 40 minutes from Yosemite. It's situated about 5 minutes from town in a very peaceful location. The property itself is large enough for exploration and there are lots of opportunities for hiking nearby. All in all it was a very nice stay at trabuco gardens.
