Located on a hill top, this 5.6 acre property offers 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. Free WiFi is provided.

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 private bedroom for large groups. There is another queen sleeper couch in the living room. This home is in a very quiet and rural setting. Relax and listen to the birds and the gentle sounds of two water features as you enjoy the grand panoramic mountain views and sunsets from the decks. The rear deck is equipped with a BBQ grill and 2 dining tables. Deer can often be seen on the property as well as squirrels, quail and many other bird species.

Amenities include central forced air heating and air conditioning. The spacious Great Room has a wood burning fireplace with glass doors, backed by a custom made stone hearth, which provides a cozy ambiance. Sit back and relax on the queen sleeper 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 and the living room couch foldsout to provide two more queen size beds when needed.

Yosemite's west entrance, on Hwy. 140, is only 36 miles away. This scenic highway from Mariposa, running through the Merced River gorge, is the shortest route to the loop road in Yosemite Valley (only 6 miles from the west entrance) when compared to the routes from the other major gateway towns such as Oakhurst and Groveland. 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 Yosemite 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 Merced River.

Guests can also take Hwy 49 to Hwy 41 to Yosemite's south entrance. This is approx. a 45 mile drive from the vacation home. Traveling in that direction you can visit Bass Lake with its water sports, beaches and restaurants. The historic Sugar Pine Railroad takes guests on a 4-mile adventure through a scenic fir and pine forest.

There are plenty of other interesting and fun things to see and do around the charming town of Mariposa, such as visiting the local museums that reveal the rich history of the pioneer gold-rush days of the late 1800s. Or spend an afternoon in the Mariposa County Park, where you'll also find tennis courts, skateboard ramps, picnic tables, and a playground. Sequoia National Park and King's Canyon National Park are even close enough for a day-trip.

SPRING is the best time to see waterfalls at their peak in Yosemite Park. The snow remaining in the highest elevations melts and flows into streams that feed the waterfalls. Other than an occasional rain, you'll find very pleasant weather and smaller crowds for hiking. Some higher elevation hikes may be closed until late spring. This is a great time to raft the Wild and Scenic Merced River, or take amazing wildflower hikes in the Merced River Canyon or Hite's Cove, outside the park (March-May). Family fun at the Butterfly Festival in Mariposa (first weekend in May) or try to win the $10,000 prize at the Annual Fishing Derby at Bass Lake (first weekend in May).

SUMMER offers months of dry, warm, sunny weather. All hiking trails are open throughout the park. The high elevation roads to Glacier Point and Tioga Pass are open. This is a good time for horseback riding, morning hiking, bicycling, and even Merced River swimming in Yosemite and Briceberg Canyon. Bass Lake is another great place for swimming, boating and hiking. (Boat rentals available). The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad is a fun family experience. Ride in open railroad cars, pulled along historic tracks through a beautiful forest, by a steam locomotive. Enjoy musical events on weekend evenings in the Art Park in Mariposa.

AUTUMN is a wonderful time to hike in Yosemite! The gorgeous fall colors last for months. Cooler but comfortable weather and smaller crowds make this time of year special and invigorating! Some waterfalls have diminished flows, but Vernal and Nevada Falls are still spectacular! Plenty of sunshine despite an occasional rain. Enjoy the beautiful greening foothills at one of the local ziplines. Family fun at the 4-day County Fair at the Mariposa Co. Fair Grounds over Labor Day weekend. Amazing natural wonders at the CA State Mining and Mineral Museum.

WINTER When snow begins to fall in Yosemite ice-skating, downhill skiing, and snowshoeing (especially in the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias) are special treats. (Rentals available.) The mountains glisten in the sun. Hiking paths in Yosemite Valley are plowed and often free of snow. Make a snowman or go sledding. Horse-drawn sleigh rides or hayrides available at Christmas just outside the park. You’ll enjoy the brisk but varying weather if you dress in layers. Days are often clear, even in winter. In Mariposa, at 2,000 ft. elevation, snow is infrequent and melts, but if you want snow you can always find it at some elevation in Yosemite Park. Bring tire chains or 4WD, but chains aren't often needed unless driving higher than Yosemite Valley.

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!
