vacation rental description

Relax in our large 3000 square foot house, with two upstairs decks, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and spacious living area on 2.5 very private acres.  We've have beds to sleep 16 in our three bedrooms, one den and one bonus room.

Location:

Located ten minutes off of the Yosemite All-Weather Highway 140 in Midpines, county maintained paved roads connect to Midpines Manor.  We do also have a 1 mile (3 minute) shutcut on a county maintained gravel road to Midpines, which takes you to the Merced River, and Yosemite Arch Rock Entrance and saves you ten minutes from taking all paved county roads.

We're about 40 minutes to the All Weather (Hwy 140) using shortcut, and an a little more than an hour South Park (Hwy 41) Yosemite National Park entrances when traffic is light. We’re ten 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 forty minutes from the town of Oakhurst, and an hour from the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino. We’ve provided a loose-leaf notebook to tell you all about the local sites and restaurants. 

Midpines Manor top floor:

Midpines Manor top floor has three bedrooms, two full baths, large kitchen, den, large living room, large dining room, breakfast nook, laundry room, large second story east facing entrance deckwith spa and north facing kitchen deck.

The large master bedroom has a king size bed, dresser, bookcase, ceiling fan and attached master bathroom.  The spacious master bathroom has two sinks, bathtub with fantastic view, shower, toilet, and walk in closet.

The two other upstairs bedrooms share a full bath located right outside their bedrooms doors.  The king bedroom has a king bed, dresser, closet and ceiling fan.  The bunk bedroom has a double bed, two twin beds in a bunk bed frame, dresser, closet and ceiling fan.  There is also a downstairs bathroom with shower, toilet and sink down stairs if needed.  The hallway has our Ansel Adams collection, and the manor has other local nuggets like a 1896 map of Yosemite drawn by the 5th Calvary.

The kitchen is stocked with dish, glass and flatware sets of 18.  There is stoneware set and a plastic ware set (for outside use).  There is a double oven, four burner stove, pots and pans for cooking, along with a rice cooker/steamer, microwave oven, blender, hand mixer, toaster,, coffee maker and coffee bean grinder.  The refrigerator is equipped with filtered ice and cold-water dispensers.  There is a dishwasher with provided environmental friendly dishwashing soap.

The living room has a magnificent fireplace, 56" HDTV, satellite and Blue-Ray player, sofa, theater surround sound, recliner and fantastic view.  Adjacent den has comptuer and cell phone hookups, queen sofa bed, and privacy panels if sofa bed is used.

The dining room tables seats ten, and can be expanded to seat fourteen with our two extra leaves.  A 39" HDTV with satellite is on swivel bracket for dining room, kitchen or breakfast nook HDTV viewing.

Breakfast nook seats four, has that 39" swivel HDTV option, next to kitchen, dining room, laundry room, and kitchen outdoor deck.

Fairly large upstairs laundry room with washer, dryer, vacuums and cleaning products.

We stock paper products, soap and shampoo.  

Midpines Manor bottom floor:

The bottom floor has a bonus room with 2 bunk beds (4 twins), queen sofa bed and an entertainment center with 32" HDTV with satellite and WII, and a 3/4 bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. 

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 from our two decks.  

Our current toll free 855 phone service does not have an option to go to voicemail prior to ten rings if we are unavailable.  We thank you in advance for your voicemail patience.

Let us be the home base for your Yosemite Vacation!

Great family gathering for New Year

Review submitted: January 24, 2014   Date of arrival: December 29, 2013

We spent six amazing nights at this property, we highly recommend this house for vacation. It is very private at the same time it is close to Mariposa where you can go for grocery and restaurants and it is about 45 min to Yosemite. We also enjoyed the Merced River and had dinner at Yosemite Bug. We visited the Butterfly winery and Mariposa Grove. The house has 3 rooms, the master room is very nice, huge with private bathroom. The other 2 rooms share a bathroom, room 2 with a kig bed and room 3 with a queen bed and a bunk bed. There is a sofa bed in a den next to the living room where you can use the pane screens for privacy, but the sofa is not comfortable, you better remove the mattress or bring an airbed. We love the family room and the big dinner table where we all enjoyd our meals together. The hot tub is also very nice.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

it is a nice place,suitable for 3 families

Review submitted: January 18, 2014   Date of arrival: January 5, 2014

it is a well decorated house, clean, warm and quite. I especially love the carpet in the house, very soft and comfortable. The sitting room is big, and has WII, my daughter loves it! The owner is very nice and patient, they gave me so many helpful suggestions. They even gave me $30 back for the absent of my husband. The only thing is this house has 3 bedrooms, one is king bed, one is queen bed, the third has a bunkbed and a single bed. There is a pullout sofa bed in the sitting room. It is not comfortable for sleep. Actually finally I gave up and slept on the carpet directly (as I mentioned before, the carpet is very soft). So I booked it for 11 peoples for 4 families, but I think it will be better for 3 families.

Recommended for: families with young children

Owners response: Thank you for your kind words, but I need to address an inaccuracy. The house has two rooms with king beds, there is no queen. The third bedroom has a set of bunks and a double bed, not a single. For the future, we are just finishing the addition of another room downstairs that will have two sets of bunks and a fold out couch, providing sleeping quarters for an additional six people.
