Owners live on the premises. Robin's Nest is an attached guest suite with a private entrance.
Trace and Robn DeSandres are longtime residents of the Sierra Foothills, having grown up in the area and lived in Mariposa for the past fifteen years. Trace is a physical education teacher and coach at the local high school and previously worked as a ranger in Yosemite National park for twelve seasons. Trace was born and raised in Yosemite and has a deep love for and vast knowledge of the area. Robn is an artist and all-around creative individual with a great love for books, gardening, and the culinary arts. She worked many years as the local elementary school librarian before retiring to focus on creative pursuits.
We love the quiet and beauty of the mountains and the friendly and supportive nature of the people in this community. Mariposa is a wonderful place to live and has so much to offer in terms of outdoor activities, special events, wildlife, as well as rest and relaxation in a safe environment.
We offer a private entrance and access to a beautifully landscaped backyard. Robin's Nest is part of a California ranch-style home that sits on 1 acre, surrounded by a white picket fence, large sprawling lawn and private driveway. Inside the garden gate you will find an abundance and variety of trees, plants and flowers that will appeal to nature lovers.
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! We had a great time here in Mariposa and in the beautiful Yosemite National Park. It was a great getaway from the busyness of Los Angeles. We really enjoyed our stay here at Robin's Nest. We felt more like we were staying with family or friends rather than a hotel. The place was very relaxing and nice. We had a great time.
A lovely place to stay while exploring Yosemite. We took the YARTS bus into Yosemite. The park n ride is a short drive away and the YARTS bus was very comfortable and reasonable (we even took our bikes). It took about 1 1/2 hrs to get to the Valley, but there was no hassle of finding a parking spot. While in Yosemite Valley we either walked, biked or rode the shuttle. The waterfalls were full and beautiful! Robin Nests had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable with a nice couch and table for eating. We enjoyed looking out the windows at their lovely garden. Robn greeted us and showed us around and answered all our questions. We also enjoyed exploring the town of Mariposa. There are some great places to eat and a museum to visit. We would stay here again.
My wife and I stayed her for our treks to Yosemite. It was a nice drive to the park and the town has plenty of good eaterys. The place was perfect for our needs and was quiet. We would definiltyncome back and stay here.
It's the second time we've stayed with Robn and Trace, and the place was just as we remembered: beautiful, clean, inviting and cozy. Highly recommended!
Robn and Trace's guesthouse is the perfect place to stay for a trip to Yosemite! The guesthouse is cozy, super clean, and has every amenity you need to relax after a long day of hiking and exploring the Park. Robn and Trace personally welcomed us and ensured that we had everything we needed. The bed is comfortable, and the couch is perfect for lounging. We also used the kitchenette to cook light breakfasts in the morning, and I had no problem utilizing the induction stove top. Robn and Trace left thoughtful welcome gifts of granola, dark chocolate, and locally roasted coffee for us to enjoy - so thoughtful! Thank you! We hope to come again!
Robn and Trace were fantastic hosts at Robin's Nest! Very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The cottage was perfect and super convenient. We were able to make it to the park quickly, about an hour or so, depending on traffic and the speed of vehicles in front of you, and most enjoyably, a super quick drive into downtown for anything you might need. We really enjoyed all of the information provided for us in the cottage for Yosemite. Even though it wasn't our first trip to the park, we still went through it and found some new and helpful tidbits. I would highly, highly recommend Robin's Nest to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Yosemite/Mariposa area. We are already planning a return trip thanks in no small part to Robn and Trace's generosity and hospitality.
We had a wonderful stay for 3 nights in October. The owners made us so welcome and could not do enough for us. We can't praise this place enough. We would definitely recommend it. If we travel to Yosemite again we would certainly stay here again. Thank you Trace and Robin it was a pleasure meeting you.
