This comfortable home offers a great location on a quiet country road and is conveniently situated between two major entrances of the beautiful and majestic Yosemite National Park. The Merced River is only minutes away and leads the way on the 35 mile scenic drive from this home to the Arch Rock Entrance. 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, out the other entrance, and back home with plenty of time to still enjoy a home cooked meal.
There is plenty to see and do in the area, and the quaint historic town of Mariposa serves as a perfect host to the traveling adventurist.

My husband, Tom, and I have been married for 37 years. We love to entertain and to meet new people. That is why we are drawn to the vacation rental business. This is a dream we have followed for our married lives, and now we are excited to make it happen.
I am a retired AT&T technician and Tom is a retired contractor. We both love animals. Right now we only have one cat who 'owns' the house in Mariposa. She is primarily an outdoor cat and lives a very independent life. She is a great hunter and reigns as the chief of critter patrol on the property. She is extremely affectionate and would be happy to let you scratch her ears if you should be so inclined!
Sherry Nohava purchased this house in 2007
Yosemite National Park is one of our favorite places on earth. I love waterfalls and Yosemite offers some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world.
Mariposa is a quaint town with a lot of nostalgia. We love the fresh mountain air, the snow-capped mountains surrounding our valley, the friendly people, the boutiques and antique shops in the town, and the fine dining offered both in Mariposa and at the Park.
We enjoy seeing all kinds of wildlife at our property. When we go there, we feel totally removed from the stress of the city life.
We really enjoyed our stay here! Very cozy and relaxing. We loved the location and visited Mariposa and Yosemite Park. It was fun sitting on the porch in the evening having wine and cheese! The starry nights are amazing here! Thank you so much for everything!
My friends and I went to Yosemite for my 25th birthday and it was amazing! We found this cute home and rented for a great price! We loved where we stayed so much. Everything was close by and the house was so accommodating. The area was so peaceful and don't get me started on the view. The beds were so comfy and the nice open kitchen. What helped make the trip was the karaoke and the games located in hall way and under t.v. I will defiantly be back soon and will highly recommend to everyone..
Our family of four enjoyed staying at the house for two days. The house was well equipped with everything we needed. Our two Basset hounds enjoyed the walks in the country. Very quit at peaceful at night. The town of Mariposa was a lot of fun to explore with lots of old time shops and good eating places. My family would stay here again.
This house is a good home base for visiting Yosemite and area. The house is clean, quiet and well equipped and plenty roomy enough for our party of four. It's on a large rural lot but not remote - lots of neighboring houses and a five to ten minute drive to the town of Mariposa, another hour or so to the Yosemite Park gate.
Lots of wildlife easily visible from the covered porch. We saw deer, wild turkeys and quail, but our favorite animal was Maude the cat. She was very friendly and faithfully greeted us each time we drove up after a day's outing.
The owners are most helpful and very easy to deal with. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
We stayed here for four nights during September 2013. The house is very comfy and well-equiped. We found everything we needed from information about the Yosemite area to spices in the kitchen. We loved to sit outside and watch the deer by dawn. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
This was the ideal base for our day trip to Yosemite over the labor day weekend. The home was very clean, well stocked and pretty much exactly as described. It was great to be just a 10-15 min drive from downtown Mariposa. The kids loved the swing outside. We enjoyed chatting out at the deck and the night sky was simply spectacular. Sherry was very easy to work with too. I would most certainly recommend this place to friends/family.
This was very unforgettable experience we have in Mariposa, in this house.
One deer stood in front of the house welcomed us when we arrived. What a big surprise to us!!! Children were very exciting playing in the ground, looking for the squirrels, birds, etc. The most unforgettable experience was the beautiful star sky in the midnight and also the sunset in the afternoon.
The house have everything we needed and was very clean, comfortable. The facilities in kitchen was very complete and we made Chinese food for our dinners.
The property was very close to Mariposa. It's also close to Yosemite, and between the waterfalls and the redwoods and the incredible views, The guidance provide by the owner, Sherry, was very detailed. Sherry was also vey kind and helpful when I left my clothes in the house.
Everything here is so perfect that We will definitely stay at the same house again if we have any chance in the future. And we will stay some more days to enjoy this quiet, beautiful place.
