Comfortable and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5
The Yosemite Country Cottage is one of the nicest, well appointed and comfortable homes we have stayed in. Our family stayed here for a week and were impressed by the amenities offered by the owners. This home is an exceptional vacation value! The location is very quiet and peaceful with fantastic star viewing. We loved the beautiful drive to Yosemite valley along Highway 140 through the Merced River Canyon. We will be coming back to stay at the Yosemite Country Cottage!

Thoughtful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five, 3 boys 16, 10, 7 had a fantastic time at the cottage. It was so nice to come back "home" every evening. The cottage is spacious, thoughtfully planned and extremely clean. Charles is very friendly and kind. The drive to the canyon is beautiful and in early December totally free. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.
We were blessed with a clear full moon night at the valley and it was stunning. The lower falls were charged due to rain the night before and it was magical under the moonlight.
We also loved breakfast at the Sugar Pine cafe. Yummy. We would return to the cottage in a flash. Thanks for the hospitality Charles.

Everything we wanted for our stay at Yosemite!

  • 5 of 5
We booked the Yosemite County Cottage after doing research online and reading all 5 star reviews about the property. It turned out to be everything we needed for our time at Yosemite. The cottage is convenient, clean, comfortable for a family of 4 (parents+2 kids) - a serene haven after a day's exciting activities at the park. Charles is a gracious and helpful host - his knowledge about the park is extremely valuable. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and won't hesitate to do it all over again if we will ever be in the area.

Immaculate, beautifully decorated, Country cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Yosemite Country Cottage for three nights and absolutely loved it! It is beautifully decorated in the country style and is new, neat, and very, very clean. It is very well-cared for and maintained and has all the amenities with new updated kitchen, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, dining area, and living room. The floor plan is one of the best I have seen with the living room and dining area centrally located between the bedrooms. It even has a laundry room with new washer and dryer.

As others have stated, the bonus is that the owner, Charles, is a Yosemite Park Ranger. When we arrived Charles was there to greet us and provided a wealth of information about where to go and what to do. Because of Charles' recommendations, we were able to make the best use of our time and to have some fun. Yosemite National Park is close by, and we enjoyed some hiking there. It was also nice to come back to the Cottage and use the outside spa while looking at the stars above.

The Cottage is also close to the town of Mariposa. Mariposa has many restaurants from which to choose. We tried Savoury's and Salvador's Mexican restaurant, and enjoyed them both.

We highly recommend Yosemite Country Cottage. Look no further, because you will LOVE this place!!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at the Country Cottage on our family vacation to Yosemite. It was close to Mariposa for gas or groceries. It was a great location to get to the entrances for Yosemite. The cottage itself was beautiful and comfortable for our family. I loved the "sky tubes" for natural sunlight in the kitchen and master bed/bath. A newer modern style cottage that had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and even an outside grill for BBQ. The washer and dryer was great for cleaning those dusty clothes from hiking Yosemite Park. The view from the cottage alone was breathtaking. Sitting in the hot tub and gazing at the stars was so relaxing and phenomenal. Charles the owner gave us wonderful information on the history of Mariposa and Yosemite and gave wonderful suggestions on what to see. Truly a perfect family vacation. We were very blessed!!

Just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to Yosemite was not able to be planned until the last minute. We looked at several locations both in and out of the park but my wife kept coming back to the Yosemite Country Cottage. Sometimes pictures don’t always tell the true story but this place is the real deal, it really is as charming and as nice as it looks. Although we did not need it, if you have a need for a true handicap accessible shower Charles spared no expense in the master bathroom in creating a true handicap accessible shower . Having a wife who is a physical therapist and a mother who is handicapped I can appreciate the value of this for those who do however As other reviews mentioned the house exceeded our expectations. Very clean very nice. The other Perk is Charles. If he offers and you have time take him up on his offer to stop down and review his travel tips to visit Yosemite His knowledge of the area is priceless and was very helpful to my wife and I and making the most of our 4 days at the park. He was also extremely responsive to me in helping me with several other decisions I needed to make about my trip as I never traveled to that area. This is your sign of a property owner who cares and will ensure the property is well maintained and your stay is enjoyable and it was. Travel time to Visitor center is about 50 minutes but the drive is awesome and we never tired of the views in and out each day that is why you are there plus no hot tub at the camp ground . At age 50 after 10+ miles of hiking coming back to the hot tub also priceless. I would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Yosemite
