Overview

About the property

From our beautiful sanctuary, follow the Wild and Scenic Merced River 40 minutes to the Yosemite National Park entrance. The charmingly historic but vibrant gold mining town of Mariposa is only 6 miles to the west.

Constructed in 2014/ 2015, this custom owner built mountain chateau is situated on the edge of a wild canyon at the end of a mile and a half graded gravel road. The year-round Plumbar Creek runs through these 56 private acres of mixed evergreen and oak woodland. This property borders the 2000+ square mile Sierra National Forest. No neighbors in sight, very majestic and peaceful!

Featuring rustic styling with a modern design (and high speed DSL Wi-Fi!), this lovely home includes a spacious, well-designed kitchen and a warm, hydronic-heated slab floors. There are two private bedrooms on separate floors and two bathrooms. A cozy indoor balcony features another queen sized bed and also serves as an entertainment center. Spend time on the large, sustainably-harvested redwood deck. Enjoy the spectacular beauty of sunrise and sunset while you grill and dine here.

From this mountain getaway, you can easily explore Yosemite, Mariposa Gold Country, and the Wild and Scenic Merced River. Chose from so many activities: hike Yosemite's spectacular trails, take a leisurely bike ride or float on a raft through Yosemite Valley, try hiking, backpacking or fishing in Yosemite's lovely high country, appreciate a unique shopping experience in Yosemite or Mariposa. Enjoy birding, gold-panning, or rock climbing. Closer to home, explore the Sierra National Forest on foot, on your bike or on your horse! We were born and raised in the Yosemite area, and we can help you make your vacation unique and memorable.

About Fritz and Lindsey

We found this 56 acres in 2009 after an exhausting search to buy a sizable piece of land in the area we grew up in. In February 2015 we finally completed our self- built dream home.

Our summer time work of living in the wilderness of the high sierra allows us to share this special place with travellers

Fritz and Lindsey purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why Fritz and Lindsey chose Yosemite

This was the only property we could find that met our criteria of being very private, having year around flowing water and bordering National Forest public land while being close to the town of Mariposa AND the Merced River and Yosemite. It has turned out to be a perfect blend of privacy while having the convenience of heading to yosemite or the river for the day while still being a short drive to town for shopping or a night out at resturaunts, saloons or concerts

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Our backyard borders Sierra National Forest, one of the biggest in the state at over 200 square miles, this in turn borders Yosemite National Park and all the wilderness and National forests and Parks of the entire Sierra Nevada mountains. The possibilities and freedom are endless!

Gorgeous and comfortable retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This is the best VRBO we've ever stayed in. Perfect for families, couples or friends. The nearby creek provides a wonderful soundtrack. The home is just like the online photos but even better as the beauty of the setting has to be experienced. The owners are kind and very helpful. The home is clean with a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and pristine beauty all around. We hope to return someday!

Awesome Retreat and Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for an overnight while visiting Yosemite for 2 days. While it is a bit of a distance from the park (about 1 hour depending on traffic), it is certainly well worth the stay. It is a beautiful retreat away from it all and Fritz and Lindsey have thought of everything to make it an incredible stay (from shampoo/soap, kitchen supplies, pool table, hammock, etc.!). It is extremely clean, spacious for a retreat in the woods, and everything about it was just absolutely perfect. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer! We agreed that we would definitely stay again if visiting the area/Yosemite. Lindsey and Fritz were both very responsive and helpful. Would highly recommend!!

Lovely, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

After a challenging ride up the long driveway we had a wonderful ah-ha moment finding this lovely house in the trees complete with babbling brook nearby. The house was very comfortable for four adults with well appointed kitchen and grill which allowed home cooking. The game room is a hoot. It was chilly when we were there in early June but we just had to sit out and enjoy the view and serenity on the decks.

When you head to Yosemite, leave early. It is one of the crowded National Parks so the earlier you can get there the better and you will be sharing it with many other folks. But it's worth it, simply beautiful. We were especially stunned by the vistas at Glacier and Taft points.

Thanks to Fritz and Lindsey for sharing your great house and for your quick and friendly answers and advice.

A wonderful retreat, great place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

Dear Lindsey and Fritz thank you for letting us use your wonderful home during our stay in America. It's was the perfect resting point between San Francisco and Las Vegas and has given us chance to recharge our batteries.

A wonderful start to our 12th wedding anniversary.

Thank you

The Perfect Yosemite Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay here! We were visiting Yosemite for the first time and wanted a relaxing place to rest after a long day of hiking. It's in a great location as it's only an hour away from the park entrance. The road to the cabin is long and rough in some spots, but the peace and seclusion the cabin offers is worth the drive. The cabin itself is extremely comfortable and was stocked with everything we needed for meals and laundry, etc. Our only regret was that we wish we would have had more time to spend relaxing at the cabin. We loved our experience here!
