This house was designed by an artist to maximize the use of natural light with its large windows and high ceilings.
The newly renovated two bedroom house is well equipped for your enjoyment. The beautiful views of the surrounding oak woodland and mountain ridges can be enjoyed from every room. Throughout the house you will find maple hardwood floors and updated appliances.
The kitchen is stocked with plenty of the amenities of home and a granite bar that seats four.
The living room has a modern chair that is great for reading and folds into a single bed if needed. The living room is equipped with a 50 inch high definition smart television that allows you to stream Netflix, listen to Pandora or watch one of the provided movies. There are also a number of board games for the family to play. The large deck has patio furniture and a gas grill. You may be able to observe deer, rabbits, and birds from the deck and if you are lucky you may hear coyotes in the evening. The house is eight miles south of the town of Mariposa off of Highway 49 and 35 miles from two year round entrances into Yosemite National Park (highway 140 and highway 41).
We met in Yosemite National Park eleven years ago. Erica came out to Yosemite from Kentucky to work for the National Park Service Bighorn Sheep program. Josh moved to the Yosemite area in 1991 to work as a rock climbing guide, ski instructor and photographer. We are raising our two children in the Merced River Canyon below Yosemite.
Erica Helling purchased this house in 2013
We love the rolling foothills of Mariposa and wanted to find a place to one day move our family to. We looked at many properties but this one spoke to us. From the moment we pulled up we felt a sense ease and look forward to one day living here. We also like that it is close to the amenities that the quaint town of Mariposa, and Oakhurst have to offer.
The sense of peace and calm that washes over you when you are at this location is what drew us to this property. We could picture retiring here just fine.
What a wonderful retreat this home provides! My wife and I were able to escape to the mountains and enjoy peace and quiet in this amazingly lovely home. Acres of space, top of the mountain, every comfort provided - we loved this home! Plus, the owners have provided everything to the smallest detail - including all kitchen and pantry needs to toothbrushes and other toiletries in the bathroom. The home is convenient to Mariposa and its shops, and not too far from Yosemite. We thoroughly loved this home and hope to return again!
While this property is more than an hour away from Yosemite, it's well worth the drive. Beautifully situated on a wide, open property, this two-bedroom bungalow is a vacation unto itself. Cozy, comfortable and tastefully appointed, it feels like a home away from home, with soaring ceilings, natural light, and views of nature from every window. This is our second visit, and it's every bit as enjoyable and restorative as our first. Mariposa is just a few miles away, with plenty of amenities (including a great health food store/cafe), restaurants, etc. I highly recommend this true gem of a getaway. Perfect for families of four.
In a word or three, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. This mountain house is immaculate and very welcoming. The bed is sumptuously comfortable. Best rest we have had in a hectic holiday. The drive through the mountains to Yosemite picturesque. The accomodation was well furnished for our needs.
Thanyou to our hosts.
We only stayed for 2 nights and spent most of the day out and about in Yosemite but the house was lovely. Very comfortable beds, clean and well equipped. It is in a very peaceful location and lots of local wildlife around the property. We would stay again if returning to the area.
We arrived with the instructions given and sat nav, no problem at all.
As we came up to the property, there was a definitely a wow from the ladies.
Beautiful location very peaceful.
Lovely house and very comfortable.
The only down side was the lack of washing machine facility, having travelled from England, or any long distance you need to keep up to date, what with luggage restriction etc.
Would we stay there again? In a heart beat, we did not want to leave .
Thankyou for making your property available for us . Don, Pauline, Paul & Norma. Essex England.
From the online photos we knew the place would be nice but it's even more beautiful in person! Thank you Erica for such attention to detail. It didn't go unnoticed!
Our unique vacation rental is located among the rolling oak foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Secluded away from light pollution of cities the property allows for spectacular star gazing, along with colorful sunrises and sunsets.
With its 800 miles of trails to hike and activities such as horseback riding, rafting, rock climbing, waterfall and wildlife viewing Yosemite National Park has something for the whole family.
We are also conveniently located eight miles from the historic town of Mariposa which has a number of quaint antique and gift shops along with fine and casual dining. A great place to unwind after a long hike in Yosemite.
