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.

My wife and I stayed with two other couples and all enjoyed our time at the Ponderosa House. The home is well appointed, furnished, and comfortable. Gourmet kitchen as well! We soaked in the hot tub one evening and viewed the stars! Recommended but be sure you are staying with good friends or family as the bathroom situation requires access through two of the three bedrooms, so we left our door open to accommodate our friends during the night.
The ponderosa house was exactly what we needed. We were preparing for our wedding in yosemite and needed a spacious kitchen to make 25 pies. It was perfect! And it was a quiet place for us to escape to.
We stayed at the Ponderosa House for our honeymoon and were blown away by how beautiful and comfortable the house was. The house was spotless when we arrived. We loved all the personal touches, like the bottle of wine welcoming us. We were a very close drive to Mariposa (about 15 minutes), which had a great grocery store, the Pioneer Market, where we could stock up the gourmet kitchen for the week. We were also very close to the entrance to Yosemite; it was about 40 minutes from the house to the valley floor. We loved spending the whole day at Yosemite hiking and enjoying the beautiful views, then coming home and being able to make a home-cooked meal on the grill. Finally, the icing on the cake was watching the stars while relaxing our sore muscles in the secluded hot tub. We have already recommended this home to many of our friends and family who also want to visit Yosemite. We were looking for adventure, relaxation, and privacy on our honeymoon and we found it at Yosemite and the Ponderosa House. Thank you, Rod and Renea, for our wonderful stay!!!
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.
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.
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. !!
