Location

Located five minutes off of Highway 49, all county maintained paved roads and driveway to River House. The all year East Fork of the Chowchilla River runs across the bottom of our property, where you can fish (California fishing laws apply), pan for gold (it's yours), dip your toes to cool off, or just enjoy the soothing river sounds and spectacular view from the private spa on our second story deck. We're about 45 minutes from the South Park Entrance (Hwy 41) and an hour to the All Weather Entrance (Hwy 140) when traffic is light. We’re fifteen minutes from the historical town of Mariposa, where you’ll find the California State Mining and Mineral Museum, the Mariposa Museum and History Center, many restaurants, and a couple really great gift shops. We are twenty minutes from the town of Oakhurst, and thirty minutes from the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino. We’ve provided a loose-leaf notebook to tell you all about the local sites and restaurants.

Wildlife

Deer and wild turkeys like the river and are present every day on the property even when we bring our dogs. Of course you are bound to spot tree squirrels and perhaps a chipmunk, raccoon, or gray fox. Hawks, turkey vultures, finch and hummingbirds frequent the trees. Kick back and enjoy the show our wrap around, two stories, 1200 square foot deck or from our private outdoor spa.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great. The wrap around deck on the main floor was a great feature. At night we would hang out at the deck to star gaze. During the day we would just hang out there, relax, watch the birds and the deers that roam the property. Too bad the river behind the property was dry because of the drought. The spa was a great feature. The entire family enjoyed it. The rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were fairly clean. Though the oven was a bit grimy. The location was perfect, it was about 1 hour from the south entrance of Yosemite and about 30-45 mins from Bass Lake. The owners are very professional and easy to deal with. They are prompt in their responses and were very accommodating with our requests.

Spring Break in Mariposa

  • 5 of 5
We loved our spring break vacation. The house is very well located. It has excellent views from kitchen, living room, dinning room and decks ... we loved it. The deck was fantastic and it worked out for our little dogs. All of us loved how close we were from the river specially my kids ... they went up and down so many times. They also enjoyed panning for gold. We were so happy to see deers, squirrels, birds, and wild turkeys. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We had a perfect weather. The house has everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Keith and Kim were very nice and helpful with us !!!

Just what we needed!

My family enjoyed our stay at Knarly Oaks. The home is comfortable, well-stocked, and had more than enough room us to stretch out in after a long day of hiking. We anticipate staying at Knarly Oaks again!

First trip to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with our stay at the River House. We had 3 generations (ages 77 - 25) stay for the week and everyone found their own special place to relax in the house. Everything was exactly as described. As this was our first time in Yosemite, and for some, in California, it was nice to have everything spelled out for us. We knew exactly what to expect and were delighted with our choice to stay at the River House! We were extremely pleased!

Excellent weekend

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons loué cette maison un moi de mai avec un groupe de d'étudiants anglais.

Le propriétaire à été parfaitement arrangeant et extrêmement sympathique. Sa propriété est vraiment propre, confortable, spacieuse et dispose, contrairement à beaucoup d'autre, d'une gigantesque terrasse pouvant accueillir l'ensemble des convives.

Enfin, la propriété est très bien située et il nous aura fallu moins d'une heure de voiture pour arriver au parc de Yosemite. Au final, le service qui nous a été proposé était bien au-dessus de mes espérance et je retournerai de façon certain à Knarly Oaks River House.

We rented this house a month of May with a group of english students.

The owner was perfectly compliant and extremely kind. His property is clean, comfortable, spacious. One point we have really appreciate: His property has, unlike many other, a HUGE terrace that can accommodate all guests for diner, games, or just relaxing time .

The property is very well located and it took us less than an hour by car to go to Yosemite. Finally, the service that was offered to us was well above my expectations, and I will return in Knarly River Oaks House.
