About Shanna Calmes

John and Wendy have explored, worked and lived in the Yosemite area since 1991. The peaceful beauty, accessibility to outdoor activities, and variety of local wildlife were a big part of our decision to settle in the Sierra foothills. We bought the Midpines property in 1992 and first built on property in 1997.

Our cousins and in-laws Jon and Shanna grew up in California. Both have memories of time spent with their respective families camping, rafting and enjoying Yosemite and the Sierra. They currently live in the Bay Area traveling to the Mariposa area several times a year to visit family, friends and the park.

Both couples have traveled using vacation rentals and know the value of a comfortable home to plan activities from. Together we would like to welcome you to our guest house. Mariposa County is great place to unwind, and the boundary to Yosemite National Park is 25 miles away. Shanna is available by phone or internet to book reservations and to answer questions. Wendy and John are located in the Mariposa area to assist you on-site, offer local recommendations or allow you to enjoy complete, uninterrupted privacy at Manzanita Guest House at Pine Hill.

Manzanita Guest House was constructed, by us, in 1997. The cabin is located on a hill offering forested, mountain views in every direction. The outdoor living area has several seating areas to put your feet up, a BBQ to prepare meals and an outdoor dining area to enjoy complete privacy.

What makes this house unique

The kitchen/dining/living area is a comfortable space to prepare meals, relax or watch TV. All bedding, linens & paper goods provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's so far my best rental experience - the house is architecturally beautiful, well decorated, with comfortable furniture and beds as well as fully equipped kitchen, bbq, air conditioning, entertainment systems, etc.

The hosts have been very welcoming, considerate, and responsive for various kinds of questions and issues.



The distance to Yosemite is reasonable (~ 1 hour's drive to the valley). I would strongly recommend staying in this place if you are visiting Yosemite.

comfy quiet bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Manzanita. After the crowds of Yosemite, it was nice to have our own space. House is VERY well stocked, and A/C is up to the task of the heat. The property gets a LOT of sun, so was not comfortable to spend time outside, but patio was shaded in afternoon. Great sunsets. Comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen, good linens. Nice to have staples like coffee, etc. Note that you need to have your own Hulu subscription to get any TV. We ended up just connecting our tablet to wifi to watch. Location is a bit far from the park, but convenient to Mariposa and very convenient to OARS rafting meeting place. Pioneer market is actually a supermarket, and has everything you need.

Very roomy and nice home

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect: roomy and all normal conveniences, inc WiFi, washer/dryer, etc. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed, like extra toiletry items, coffee beans and grinder, spices, etc. The house was close enough to drive into Yosemite Valley (about an hour).

The only issue we had were a few spiders inside the house. Even with that, we'd definitely stay here again! Knowing how thoughtful the owners are, I'm sure they'll take care of the spider situation going forward.

Quaint and cozy cabin with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 stay at the Manzanita Guest house from 10/22/16 - 10/25/16. The guest house was clean and cozy and was perfect for our weekend retreat in the woods. Shanna was a great host and was so thoughtful in the way the house was decorated and furnished. We loved that this home had a great space for indoor and outdoor living. We enjoyed having meals on the dining table outside and having coffee on the upstairs balcony while looking out at the gorgeous view of the mountains. The kitchen was equipped with all types of appliances and several different pots, pans, utensils, etc. which made it so convenient to cook all our meals during this trip. We also appreciated having a front-loading washer and dryer, so we were able to do laundry during our stay.

We also enjoyed the seclusion and privacy of the guest house. We felt completely at peace being away from city life, yet downtown Mariposa was only 15 minutes away and the entrance to Yosemite NP was about an hour drive. Being outside at night with no light pollution made for some epic star gazing. It was incredibly beautiful and peaceful. I would highly recommend the Manzanita Guest House to anyone looking for a comfortable cable-style accommodation in the woods. Everything about this home was perfect!
