A lovely scenic drive into Yosemite National Park. Located in between the west gate and south gate. Just 33.9 miles to the park entrance and 45 miles to the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center from the west gate.

Mariposa, its name is Spanish for "butterfly", after the flocks of monarchs seen overwintering there by early explorers. The town of Mariposa, first settled in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , is the southernmost in the Gold Rush chain of towns. The streets follow the original street grid laid out by John C. Fremont in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Several disastrous early fires convinced settlers to rebuild with stone, brick and adobe. Consequently, many of todays existing structures in the historic downtown had been built by the late (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) s, with most of the remaining ones completed by (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Because they have always been in use, the old buildings havent had to be restored or recreated.

Change has come gracefully to Mariposa. Mariposa has retained the small town charm of a bygone era, so you wont see strip malls or chain stores, and Mariposa remains one of a handful of California towns without a stop light.

Our property is a 6 minute drive into the historic town of Mariposa. You'll find a full service grocery store, a health food store, bars, ice cream shop, restaurants & diners, retail shops, wine shops, olive oil tasting room and even a community park and public pool. So much to explore in Mariposa!

Like many, I fell in love with Yosemite as a kid. As an adult, after my first backpacking trip up Half Dome, I just knew I needed to connect even more with this magical place. Thus our home purchase. We put our hearts & souls into the design and layout of our home. Now, with 2 young kids, we all get to enjoy the wonders of Yosemite year round. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do, and that Yosemite's magic gets in your blood. We'd love to host you again and again :)
