Yosemite Homes

Mariposa Ridge Retreat is a ten-acre hilltop home with stunning panoramic views of the snow capped peaks in Yosemite and the quaint village below. Located just 1.6 miles outside of the historic Gold mining County seat of Mariposa, the "Mother of California's Counties." We are 38 miles from Yosemite National Park, ten minutes from the stunning Merced River which winds along Highway 140 for 23 miles into the Park. One of the most scenic drives on planet Earth.

The home was built in 2005 and features a King Suite, a Queen bedroom and a full-size double futon in the third bedroom. Two full baths with a double-sized soaking tub in the Master bath. There is a 500 square foot deck with brand new six foot circular HOT SPRINGS Spa overlooking the Mariposa Valley along with picnic table and barbecue. The water comes from a deep mountain well fed by year-round Sierra snowpack and is the sweetest you will ever drink! Roam the ten hilltop acres along with deer and wild birds of every description.

Bring your clothes and food (linens and towels are provided) and come home to peaceful mountain air and escape the rat race below. Mariposa is the ONLY California County without a single Traffic Light!

The King is a Beautyrest Pillowtop, the Queen is a Tempurpedic space foam dream, and the full size double futon in bedroom #3 sleeps very comfortably. There is a queen inflatable for added visitor sleeping. There is a library of eclectic volumes and lots of old fashioned board games for the family. We have lots of classic kids and family movies. The home has central heat and air conditioning. Most of the year, the windows are open and the mountain breezes do just fine.
The living room is furnished with comfortable, casual elegance. Artwork from Ansel Adams captures the Sierra spirit in most every room.
