Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Mariposa - Plumbar House

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!

I'd like to keep it a secret!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem. It is secluded in the trees off a dirt road. You can't see or hear any neighbors and the silence and views are breathtaking. The home offers every luxury from lovely linens, heated floor, comfortable furniture and a full kitchen. We rented to be near Yosemite, but next time we'll plan to spend more time in both places.

Perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

A little further from the valley than I had hoped- a true hour - but a lovely comfy home with small touches that delight and close to mariposa with many eateries and grocery.

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a nice hike in Yosemite on a rainy day to discover that the floors were heated which was so comforting. Unfortunately, we only spent one night here but I would definitely come back and stay a few days. This was the first time I had used HomeAway to rent a house and am I ever glad I did.

The house was perfect!

Magnificent home

  • 5 of 5

Fritz and Lindsey's home was SO roomy and beautiful. The kitchen/living room floors were heated!! :D The beds were comfortable, the showers were relaxing, and there was water provided in the refrigerator. It's too bad my mates and I arrived at 10pm that night and left 12 hours later, or else we would have tried to take advantage of the game room! The drive to the house from the main highway, especially at night, is kind of long (10-15 minutes) and spooky (I watch too many scary movies), so just be aware of that but the host's directions to the house was very clear and descriptive. Thank you guys.
