Yosemite National Park, California
Yosemite Ranch offers a unique opportunity to experience dome home living on our secluded 60 acre ranch. We are only a 25 mile scenic drive from Yosemite National Park and only 6 miles from the beautiful wild & scenic Merced River, a popular destination for fishing, swimming, and whitewater rafting. The Yosemite Dome Home is located on the top of a private oak studded hill offering scenic views in several directions. It is quite common to see some of the numerous deer in the area grazing in the pasture or wild turkeys wandering by. Enter the Yosemite Dome Home and enjoy the spacious feeling created by the big picture windows and the high domed ceiling complete with skylights. Almost everyone remarks upon entering that the Home 'looks so much bigger on the inside.' The main floor offers a master suite with a queen size be... Read more

Great location, just off the highway, close to Mariposa, which is a great little town to chill in before or after a great day exploring Yosemite. Irene was a great host, and due to our flight being delayed we arrived quite late, but she was...More

About the neighbourhood
The Yosemite Dome Home is located on a beautiful 60 acre ranch located on a private gated road in a quiet rural area with few neighbors. You can enjoy peaceful walks down the gravel road or come down to the main ranch and visit the horses. The Dome Home sits on top of a ridge with fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. The Merced River is only 15 minutes away and offers outstanding trout fishing and swimming in the summer months as well as white water rafting in the spring. It is a beautiful, scenic drive through the Merced River Canyon to Yosemite National Park. We are also only 15 minutes away from the historic gold rush town of Mariposa which offers shopping, museums, and fine dining.
Getting around
Having a car is the easiest way to get around but there is a Yarts bus stop in Midpines for those that prefer to ride the bus into Yosemite

How to get there

Yosemite Ranch. Recommended Directions from Mariposa. Continue through Mariposa and stay on I-140 to Midpines (approx. 7 miles past Mariposa). Turn left on to Colorado Road (only goes to left). Colorado Road is not far after you see the Post Office on your left. About 1 ½ miles down Colorado Road, turn right on Rumley Mine Road (it is just past Rancheria Creek where there are a lot of mail boxes). There is a gate at the entrance to Rumley Mine Road. If it is locked, the combination is 0 1 0 0. Dial the combination and then squeeze the hasp in and it will pop open. Continue approximately ½ mile down Rumley Mine Road to Yosemite Ranch. The address is 5301 Rumley Mine Road. You will see six foot high pipe and horse wire fencing. The ranch headquarters/office is on the left. Come t... more
