vacation rental description

"And a River Runs Through It"...Come stretch out and relax in our beautiful two story, 2300 square foot, three bedroom, three bathroom house with reading room, game room, dining room and living room on 1.7 very private acres.  We've have beds to easily sleep 14 in five seperate rooms in comfort [see pictures], all within the wonderful community of Mariposa.


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.  

The River House

The top floor has the wrap around upper deck, kitchen, living room, master bedroom with king bed, queen room with queen bed, reading room with king bed, and a full bathroom and master ¾ bathroom.  The bottom floor has a lower deck, garage, bunkroom with 4 bunk beds and double futon, game room with queen sofa bed, and ½ bath (sink and toilet only).

The upper wrap around deck has the spa outside the master bedroom sliding glass door, propane barbecue and picnic table outside the living room sliding door, swing and chairs to relax in by the dining room sliding door.  Relax to the sounds of the river and enjoy the fantastic view.

The kitchen is stocked with dish, glass and flatware sets of 12.  There is stoneware set and a plastic ware set (for outside use).  There are pots and pans for cooking, along with a rice cooker/steamer, microwave oven, blender, hand mixer, toaster, waffle maker, coffee maker and coffee bean grinder.  The refrigerator is equipped with filtered ice and cold-water dispensers.  You’ll be happy to know there is also a dishwasher.  

The dining room tables seats ten along with four additional barstools at the kitchen counter.

The living room has an awesome slate fireplace, 41" HDTV, satellite/HBO and Blue-Ray player, sofa, recliner and nice view.

The bottom floor has lower deck with wicker furniture enclosed by insect netting, garage with 220V RV hookup, washer, dryer, iron and ironing board, bunk room with two bunk beds (4 twin beds) and double futon, game room with queen sofa bed, 31” HDTV, satellite/HBO, Blue-Ray/DVD player, Wii, mini fridge, and a half bath (sink and toilet).

traveler reviews for this yosemite house rental

Perfect place!

Review submitted: July 18, 2014   Date of arrival: June 29, 2014

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your kind words and we promise to watch the condition of the oven more carefully.

Spring Break in Mariposa

Review submitted: May 7, 2014   Date of arrival: April 5, 2014

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!

Review submitted: April 1, 2014   Date of arrival: March 17, 2014

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!
