vacation rental description


AUTUMN is a wonderful time to hike in Yosemite! The gorgeous fall colors last for months. Cooler comfortable weather and smaller crowds make this time of year special and invigorating! It's our favorite time to hike there ourselves!

Deer Ridge Vacation Home is a spacious upscale home, custom built in 2003, that is beautifully located on a hill top, with stunning mountain views in all directions. There are long covered decks wrapping around most of the home, with plenty of outdoor seating provided. Additional benches on the property offer breathtaking views of the foothills of the Sierras from their own vantage points. Water features and gardens complement the natural rock formations, a delight for adults and children alike. This 2625 sq. ft. vacation home sits on a 5.6 acre property with plenty of privacy. It has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, plus a den with a queen size sleeper couch that can act as a 4th very private bedroom for large groups. This home sleeps 10 people comfortably in beds, and is in a very quiet and private rural setting. Relax and listen to the birds and the gentle sounds of two granite water features as you enjoy the grand panoramic mountain views and sunsets from the decks. The rear deck is also equipped with a BBQ grill and 2 outdoor dining tables. Deer can often be seen on the property as well as squirrels, quail and many different birds species. This property has a vast variety of bushes and trees, many of which flower in various seasons. Among the hundreds of trees here, there are dozens of beautiful manzanita bushes and trees. Native to the Sierra foothills, the manzanitas are known for their reddish trunks and attractive twisting shapes. They flower in the spring, to the delight of the hummingbirds.

Deer Ridge Vacation Home is located 3.8 miles southeast of the town of Mariposa. The west entrance of Yosemite Park is only 36 miles away via Hwy 140, a very scenic route along the Merced River. In Mariposa, a historic gold mining town, you can find out more about its gold mining past as you visit the Mariposa Museum and History Center. Inside the museum is a full sized replica of a mining town with authentic artifacts. Or visit the Mariposa Mining and Mineral Museum where you can explore the variety of California’s mineral wealth, and view breathtaking gems, minerals and precious metals from around the world. The Mariposa County Park offers a swimming pool and tennis courts for some outdoor family fun.

This comfortable home has central forced air heating and air conditioning throughout. The spacious Great Room has a cathedral ceiling with plenty of windows to the view outside. The wood burning fireplace with glass doors, backed by a beautiful stone hearth, provides a cozy ambiance. Sit back and relax on a leather couch, easy chair or recliner, as you visit with your family or friends. Or watch TV or a DVD (from our collection) on the 42 inch flat screen TV.

The kids can play games, or watch TV or movies on a second 42 inch flat screen TV in the large private den. The den couch folds out to provide a queen size bed when needed. The den is also furnished with two nightstands (providing clothing storage) and a comfortable easy chair.

The dining room seats 10 people and has a beautiful hardwood floor. The fully equipped adjoining kitchen has a gas stove top, large fridge, quiet dishwasher, large microwave, convection oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster oven, toaster, blender, crock pot, and all of the other equipment you would expect in a well furnished kitchen at home. We provide spices and cooking oil, coffee filters, and several other necessities so you don't need to buy them yourself. The kitchen has a tiled floor, plenty of oak cabinets, and beautiful tiled counter tops and back splashes. On a bookshelf in the kitchen, close to the sliding glass doors to the deck, you’ll find a display of flyers and books about things to see and do in the area. Next to the kitchen you'll find the laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer, available for your use. Laundry detergent is included.

The master suite is downstairs and has its own sliding glass door leading to the deck. It features a walk-in closet, a queen size bed, a large chest of drawers, two nightstands and a recliner for reading, solitude and relaxation. The adjoining master bathroom has a jetted tub set into a tiled platform in a bay window, offering great views of the surrounding landscaping. The large beautifully tiled shower includes a tiled bench and an oversize shower head. Upstairs, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and an extra long twin bed, a large chest of drawers, a night stand and a desk where you can write post cards or use your electronic devices with the free WIFI we provide.

More things to see and do in the area:

The west entrance of Yosemite Park is only 36 miles from the vacation home. This west entrance to Yosemite Park is by far the closest (only 6 miles) to the loop road of Yosemite Valley, the park's main attraction. The Yosemite Valley is much further from all other park entrances.) You’ll enjoy the scenic drive along Hwy. 140 bordered by the Merced River. After 18 miles you’ll see the Merced River Recreation Area at Briceburg. It has sandy beaches where you can have a family picnic, or stop to dip into the river on the way back from the park to cool off on a hot summer day. This area is also great for fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing. For the more adventurous among you, rent a kayak or take a white water rafting trip with one of the commercial rafting companies that provide trips down portions of the river.

Guests can also take Hwy 49 to Hwy 41 to drive through Yosemite's south entrance. This is approx. a 41 mile drive from the vacation home. Traveling in that direction you can visit Bass Lake with its wonderful swimming, boat rentals, beaches and restaurants. Also along Hwy 41, the historic Sugar Pine Railroad takes guests on a 4-mile narrated historical railway adventure through a scenic fir and pine forest pulled by a steam locomotive traversing original logging railbeds restored from the turn of the century. They also offer gold panning for the entire family. (Operates March - Oct.)

Another attraction is Sierra Vista Scenic Byway which you don’t want to miss. You’ll see giant sequoia groves, alpine lakes and meadows, rock formations, wildflower fields and some of the most beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.

Mariposa is home to many restaurants, such as Charles Street, Castillo’s Mexican, Savoury’s, Sugar Pine Café, River Rock Inn, and High Country Health Food. You can find everything from gourmet dining, to Thai or Mexican food to the youthful vibe of Happy Burger Diner. Pioneer Market is the local grocery store. It was recently remodeled, is well stocked and it now offers Sushi. You'll also enjoy the local antique shops, gift shops and art galleries, some of which promote local artists. You might want to buy the local newspaper which comes out every Thursday for local events and attractions.

If you are looking for an adventurous vacation in a beautiful natural area, with gorgeous mountain views and easy access to Yosemite Park, you are sure to enjoy your stay at Deer Ridge Vacation Home!

Lovely and really comfortable, well organized home

Review submitted: August 1, 2014   Date of arrival: July 26, 2014

Dear Bruce and Magdalena,

We really enjoyed your lovely and really comfortable home. Mariposa was charming - we liked the Savory's 1850 restaurant and the Pizza Parlor. Despite the fire and haziness we thoroughly enjoyed Glacier Point, Yosemite Valley, Mirror Lake and Vernal Falls. Your instructions to get up here were excellent. We appreciated how well organized everything in the house is. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It made our yearly family reunion memorable. Best regards~
