vacation rental description

'Your home and hospitality for my best friends has been a slice of heaven. The solitude is a wonderful break from our hectic everyday lives'.

When you arrive at Wild Oak Farm you will leave the hustle and bustle of your daily life behind. The 700-foot long driveway leads you to the Tree House which is perched in the center of the 25 acre property. Enter the doorway under the house and ascend the spiral staircase into your vacation retreat. You will not be disappointed. The Tree House exemplifies rustic elegance; from the massive granite fireplace and incense-cedar trunk that are the center points of the entire house, to the uncluttered, yet well-appointed bedrooms and full amenity kitchen.

The Tree House is a three bedroom, two bath house perfect for families and friends looking for the unique vacation home with lots of special touches. Each bedroom has views of the majestic old-growth oaks that forest the property. The master bedroom features a king-size bed and a sliding door that leads directly to the wrap-around deck. The Loft Room has a Olympic queen-size bed on the main floor and a full-size bed in the sleeping loft (a kid favorite). The Triangle Room has a queen-size bed, and features local Yosemite art. The Tree House comfortably accommodates six adults and can accommodate more in the loft and the sleeper couch in the family room.

The house is wrapped by a wooden deck that provides views into the surrounding mountains. You can access the deck via the french-doors in the kitchen. The hammock on the slate back deck is a shady retreat in the summertime. The hot tub is a great place to unwind after hiking in Yosemite all day and has great views of the stars and surrounding mountains.

traveler reviews for this mariposa house rental

Loved the Treehouse well worth the drive

Review submitted: June 27, 2014   Date of arrival: May 20, 2014

Okay I want to qualify my 5 stars based on some other comments. I live in a very nice house that was built in the late 1890s so you can’t make old new but it still can be very nice. The Tree house is not brand new but that does not mean it still can’t be awesome. I read some of the other reviews and I won’t hold it against the house for being lived in. We were there in May of 2014. We needed a place to finish our week at Yosemite and this worked out great. The house was a little big for my wife and I but the price was perfect compared to staying in the park. Travel time even with construction to the valley parking lot was about 50 minutes, but it’s an awesome drive. I made the drive multiple times that week and never got tired of the view. Rent a nice convertible Mustang or Camaro and embrace the drive enjoy the drive along the river and in and out of the Valley floor. I doubt your commute to work is this spectacular. You have to be inside the house to truly appreciate how nice/cool/neat it is. This would be a great place for families. Kids would love this house. Couples would love the great room with giant couch and fireplace. As mentioned by some of the other post Hot Tub was awesome. Loved the view of the stars from the tub even watched a distant thunderstorm one night. As older hikers, making the drive back to a warm hot tub is priceless. If I could talk my teenagers in to going to Yosemite the treehouse would be the perfect family escape. Great laundry room as well. We only used the Master bedroom but the bed was very comfortable. Again old tired hikers appreciate these things. My days of sleeping on rocks and sharing cold showers are hopefully over. The Treehouse is well worth the drive and of course you are paying probably half of what it cost to stay in the park and you have the place all to yourself. My wife and I were celebrating our 8th anniversary and we both agreed this was the best vacation of our lives. Our relaxing evenings at the Treehouse and sunrise breakfast on the deck played a part in that. The owner Todd was very responsive and we had no problems with anything in the house he also gave us great suggestions to help make our first trip to Yosemite a wonderful one.

Fantastic, Tranquil, and Convenient - for people and pets alike!

Review submitted: February 22, 2014   Date of arrival: February 13, 2014

We had a romantic Valentine's Day weekend at the Treehouse. First, Todd was incredibly responsive, professional, and helpful. He was even flexible with allowing us to change our arrival date at the last minute. The house is exactly as advertised. It's on a quiet piece of property right off HWY 140. It makes it easy to get to, and to get to Yosemite (35 mins door to gate), but sits back off a long driveway so you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Plus your dogs are safe to roam. The home is clean and comfortable. We had a romantic fire and loved the sunsets and stars from the hot tub. Kitchen met all our needs (we cooked in all except one meal) and the bed was quite comfortable. My only suggestion would be a recycle bin somewhere in he kitchen/labeled in the shed as we weren't sure where to put recyclables. We brought our 2 small dogs and they loved exploring during the day all over the property. We were careful to keep them close/leashed at night due to wildlife in the area. Mariposa is pretty close for shopping or dinners, we enjoyed it one afternoon. We spent 2 days in the park, and it was magnificent as always! Thank you Todd for everything, we would love to stay again sometime!

Owners response: Sarah-

Thanks for the kind words about the TreeHouse! I feel the same way whenever I stay there with friends or family. As far as recycling goes, the Mariposa Co. landfill separates out recyclables from the trash and our trash is picked up by dump truck. So it's easier on our cleaning staff as well as the dump truck employees to lump it all together.

A great retreat for our week stay near Yosemite!

Review submitted: August 11, 2013   Date of arrival: July 29, 2013

This was the perfect spot to come "home" to after a day of hiking or exploring in Yosemite. It's secluded and quiet. The home was roomy and had all of the amenities of a real home like plenty of dishes and cookware, a nice gas grill, a washer & dryer, and plenty of room to lounge and relax from the living area to the kitchen area, to the deck. Our only hassle were the ants that found our food, but that's not a foreseeable problem for the owners! Our favorite part was nightly soaks in the hot tub watching the stars. It is an hour's drive from the park but we liked being away from the crowds. The garden isn't growing right now and the landscape was brown and dry - very normal for this area this time of the year. We did get to watch 3 young bucks that were sitting in the yard plus a busy chipmunk and a woodpecker that woke us up every morning by 'knocking' on the house. The driveway is a little steep with some loose gravel and rocks - just something to be aware of - we didn't have any trouble getting up it but we did have to 'goose it' a little. A fun place to stay and I'd recommend it to anyone.
