Description

Beautifully located, with breathtaking views of the surrounding Sierra Foothills, this comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1800 sq.ft. home is only 7 miles northeast of the historic town of Mariposa and only 29 miles from the west entrance of Yosemite Park. New flooring has been installed throughout the home in March of 2015. Butterfly Ridge Vacation Home sleeps 8 people, with one queen-size bed, two double beds, a queen-size sleeper couch and an optional queen-size inflatable bed. Enjoy the expansive views from the large front patio and partake of the fruit of the backyard grape vines and fruit trees in season. This quiet and very private 5 acre lot is home to deer families and abundant wildlife. You won't believe the clear views of the stars from the patio at 3200 ft. above sea level.

Amenities include central heating and A/C, a large game room with 9 ft. pool table, family games and books, and a 52 inch LCD TV with satellite TV, Playstation 2 and Blu-ray/DVD movies. For the little ones there is a play table in a corner of the game room with little cars, roads, people, castles and trees. There is also a teddy bear, a ball and games for small children. A crib and high chair are available. Free WiFi is available - just bring your electronic devices.

We provide brochures, maps and books about the area that will help you to plan your stay. Things to see and do in the area include dozens of incredibly scenic places and hikes in Yosemite Park, rafting on the Merced River, swimming, fishing, mountain biking or walking along the Merced River at Briceburg, swimming and boating at Bass Lake or Lake McSwain, and interesting walks and hikes in the Mariposa area. Mariposa also hosts concerts in the Art Park every summer weekend and has several art galleries. The county park in Mariposa is a great place for families to visit, providing a large swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, picnic areas, a skateboard park and a concert venue.

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're looking for a fun family vacation in a beautiful natural area, with breathtaking Sierra views and quick access to Yosemite Park's west entrance, you're sure to enjoy your stay at Butterfly Ridge Vacation Home!
