The Cottage was comfortable for us and our 2 adult kids. It is located in a beautiful setting with good local restaurants near by. We used this location while visiting Yeosmite, it is about 45 minutes to the park gates. The only downside is no air conditioning. Fans helped but it was a hot night sleep.
We had a great 3 night stay in this beautiful situated, well-furnished and spacious cottage. On arrival it was exceptionally clean and there was a bottle of wine and scones waiting for us which was a nice surprise. We had lovely evenings sitting on the deck overlooking the vineyard beteeen days spent in the national park (around an hour's easy drive away). Stores, gas and facilities just a few minutes from the cottage in Mariposa. A great experience; highly recommended.
Five members of my family had a wonderful time staying in this cottage in the Sierra-Nevada foothills. Our intent was to have a jumping off point for a backcountry trip to Yosemite. It was perfect. Cliff was a wonderful host. The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable. The best parts were the little surprises of breakfast muffins and wine from the vineyard where the cottage is located. It's a bit of a drive to the best parts of Yosemite, but so much better than staying in a large, impersonal motel. It is close to good restaurants in Mariposa, which we appreciated. We were able to take advantage of day hiking for a couple of days and were well rested for our trip into the back country.
Due to the wildfires in the area we were unable to make it to the cottage. The owner kept us apprised of the situation and was very honest about the inability to forecast conditions on the day we were booked to arrive. We had an 8 hour drive and had our two grandchildren with us so he advised us not to attempt it as the town was at risk of being evacuated. We are looking forward to re-booking later in the year.
It is really hard to put into words what a magical place this little spot is. The owners welcomed us with banana nut bread, berries, and wine. The cottage is very comfortable, and the amenities so cute. There is a hummingbird feeder off the back deck with at least 9 hummingbirds that visit. There are beautiful flowers including rose bushes in the front. The back deck also has grapes growing. The cottage is on the land occupied by a vineyard. It is quiet, and we wish we had a day just to hang out there. Mariposa is a cute and historical little town. We will definitely look to come back for a longer period of time.
