1068 sqft home in Midpines, a Yosemite gateway community. It's a 30
minutes drive to Yosemite National Park boundary. The cool refreshing Merced River is a 10 minute drive for fishing and swimming. The historic town of Mariposa is 15 minutes drive. We are an 8 acre ranch in the oak trees. The hill side is open above the house and great for star gazing. Note- 11% Mariposa county tax is not included in the price. Tax will be collected upon check in. Cash or check. Thank you in advance.

The space

The house is in an 8 acre property with a quiet atmosphere. The big windows and patio doors offer the view of the surrounding area. Wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife can sometimes be seen around the property. The big sliding door and French door by the living area provide sunlight and cool breeze while you sip your coffee in the morning. You can listen to the birds and the breeze blowing through the Oak trees. The master bedroom has a sliding door that offers view of the outside and has a huge bathroom with shower. The second bedroom has big windows with the view of the trees and mountains. A second bathroom is an easy access from the living room/kitchen and next to the second bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with what you need to make a hearty meal. With big windows/patio doors and high ceiling, it has the feel of an open space. There's a guidebook and other Yosemite books in the living area for your reference and reading enjoyment. The property has a year round creek and 2 seasonal creeks.The star gazing is so beautiful. Please do understand that we are in a rural area. The Wi Fi is complimentary. We do not guarantee its reliability because of the rural location. It is not part of what we charge for the house and is free!
The location is 30 minutes to the Yosemite boundary and one hour to Yosemite Village. It is an amazing drive along the Merced River. Be ready to take extra time for photo stops. Please do include Children in your guest count. If children are part of your group. So that we may properly accommodate you.

Guest access

You have access to pretty much the whole 8 acres. The 12 acre BLM land is adjacent to the back of the property. We are in close proximity to acres of National Forest Land and of course The Spectacular Yosemite National Park. Or you can just relax on your patio and take in some star gazing.

Interaction with guests

The host family lives in a separate house on the property and guests are welcome to stop by to say hi or to ask questions. Dean has been in the area for 36 years and can offer tips or answer some questions as needed.
The two houses are far enough for some privacy and we respect the need for privacy.

Other things to note

An 11% Mariposa County bed tax is not included in the price. This will be collected at check in. Thank you so much in advance for your understanding.
Please do include Children in your guest count if they are
part of your group. So that we may properly accommodate you.
We provide free internet. However, we do not guarantee reliability of the system due to our rural area!
Remember a rural area! This is not the city. If you can't handle being in the woods and what comes with it. (i.e. Bugs, bats, scorpions, bears, mountain lions, harsh weather conditions, floods, rock slides, fires, earthquakes) then you may want to prep yourself before coming to Yosemite. Nature has a lot to offer, rivers, sunsets, hiking, wild animals and flowers, beautiful mountain views and fresh air! Come on up!

We had an excellent time. Dean's place is a bit of a drive to the park but it beautiful and goes by quick! Thanks

The cabin is bright, cheerful and clean beyond expectations. The location is remote enough to enjoy sightings of deer, wild turkeys and quail almost daily, yet is only minutes away from town. Dean and Angie are super hosts, reponsive to any need and a valuable source of information on nearby things to do. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wish we were still there!

Lovely house with plenty of space in very quiet and private area. Everything was clean and and met our expectations. In the evening you can clearly see the stars on the porch and enjoy nice weather. It takes about an hour to get to Yosemite park and is very easy drive to get there. The grocery store is also not so far in Mariposa and it was easy to find and buy the food out there. Dean and Angie were nice and were always available over the phone/message if anything was needed. Wish I can come back again tho this place someday. Thank you!

We stayed with six in Dean and Angies' house and had a great time. A good hour scenic drive from Yosemite Valley, which we didn't mind at all. The place is very spacious and equipped with all the necessities. Angie and Dean were also very kind and helpful, we appreciated that a lot. A big bonus is the wildlife around the house. Wild turkeys and deer in the garden! Would definitely recommend to future guests!

We truly enjoyed Dean's place while on a family vacation to Yosemite NP. Loved the welcoming hosts, the readiness/cleanness of everything in the house, and the settings in the forest. While the property is not inside Yosemite NP as described in the description, we really enjoyed the ~1 hour drive along Merced River to and from the Valley. Dean's place is a wonderful choice for us. Thanks for hosting!
