Overview

About the property

Quiet Location, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Mountain View, Well Stocked Kitchen

Our home is in a great location just off of a paved, quiet country road and is conveniently located between the entrances of the beautiful and majestic Yosemite National Park.

Single story home has no steps making access very convenient. Well-equipped kitchen with all you will need to prepare that perfect meal. The bedrooms have comfortable beds with luxury linens supplied. Each room offers the comfort of a ceiling fan.

The ranch style living room is very comfortable and spacious. The home is equipped with heating and air conditioning, Wi-Fi and Direct TV.

The large deck overlooking the year round creek is a wonderful place to enjoy coffee in the morning or an evening taking in all the wildlife as they stop by the creek for a drink or graze in the pasture. There is a large lawn yard with plenty of room for enjoyment outdoors with lots of shade from the huge majestic Oak trees.

The Merced River is only minutes away which is a great place for fishing, swimming, or white water rafting, and leads the way on the 35 mile scenic drive from this home to the Arch Rock Entrance to Yosemite.

The alternate route to the park, approximately a 45 mile drive, will take you past the Mariposa Groves where you'll see the Giant Sequoias, the Badger Pass Ski Area, and other attractions. It's an easy day trip to make through one entrance, taking in scenes and points of interest through the park.

There is plenty to see and do in the area, and in the quaint historic town of Mariposa, you'll find museums, fine dining, antique shops, and other attractions.

Mariposa features a wonderful grocery store that has fresh seafood, sushi, fine wines, fresh produce, and all the fixings to prepare a great meal.

There is a wonderful Visitor's Center with information that is sure to fulfill all of the curious inquiries of the most adventurous travelers. Mariposa is rich in history and is home to the oldest Courthouse still in operation west of the Mississippi.

The California State Mining and Mineral Museum is only a few miles away from this house and boasts some of the most impressive mining treasures ever found in the state of California.

We hope you'll agree that our location and the amenities that we offer will enable you to experience the beauty of Yosemite, the comforts of home, and the adventure of a lifetime that you and your family will enjoy and remember.

About The Owner

My husband and I were both born in Mariposa and graduated from Mariposa High School. He is a Sergeant Major currently serving in the U.S. Army and we plan to come back home upon his retirement. Mariposa was a great place to grow up and to raise a family. We are very fortunate to have Yosemite National Park so close to our home with easy access of only 46 miles.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Mariposa

We love the shady year round creek and the green pastures in the spring. Friends bring their horses over also in the spring to graze down the grass. This is great usable property and easy access with a very large parking area. Mariposa is a quaint Gold Rush town and is only 10 minutes from this location.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique having the year round creek and huge Oak trees that surround the property. We enjoy the privacy that this location provides. Our house is comfortable and cozy and has all the amenities you will need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a blessing it was to stay here, we stayed here with another family and we've both been blessed, this is a home that we would recommend and would love to stay here again if we come around this area again. You picked a beautiful location, it is a piece of heaven, thank you, thank you, thank you. May God bless you and have a beautiful day.

Wonderful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Humbug Creek Ranch is lovely. From the “light on the front porch” left on to welcome us upon our arrival, to the hot, jetted water (also welcoming us) in the hot tub, no detail was left out. The beds are super comfortable (and we’re very discerning when it comes to mattress comfort), towels were thick enough and fluffy and the kitchen was incredibly well stocked. Everything was clean and tidy. We felt right at home and will definitely book again on our next trip to the Yosemite Valley!!!!!! Thank you for providing a nice “home-away-from-home.”

So clean, comfortable and roomy. Wish we could have stayed longer! Planning our next visit already. About an hour from Yosemite Valley.

Cute house and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Owners were helpful when the A/C quit to try to get someone to fix it and came up with a temporary solution when it couldn't be fixed. We did have one very hot night before that could be done, tho. It seems there are a few things that could have some maintenance upkeep done, and there were lots of cobwebs in windows we noticed when we had to open windows. Otherwise the house is clean and was perfect for our extended family visit to Yosemite. We really loved having a green yard to play games on in the evening and morning hours.

Enjoyed our stay. Some issues but owners responded quickly and issues resolved. Close to Mariposa and conveniences. Nice proximity to the national parks which are an easy drive. Home very comfortable.

Our home is located about 10 minutes from the town of Mariposa. Mariposa has many fine restaurants to enjoy, also museums, unique shops and music in the summer evenings at the art park. The Mariposa County Fair is always on Labor Day weekend. You are only about an hour and 15 minutes from Yosemite Valley and the drive thru either entrance is spectacular.
