Private room with queen size bed, bathroom across the hall. Located 30 miles from Yosemite, 15 miles from Bass Lake, and 50 miles east of Fresno. Price is for room and delicious breakfast. Smoking outdoors only. Parking available for auto or RV.

The Space

A rambling western style home nestled in a quiet peaceful setting of oaks and pines, with mountain views, deer, squirrels, foxes, raccoons, and other native animals roaming the property. Some snow in winter, but roads are cleared quickly. Situated 18 miles south of the historical gold mining town of Mariposa and 8 miles NW of Oakhurst. Lots of shopping in both little towns. Lots of activities available during all seasons of the year. Also fishing, boating, and dining, etc., at nearby Bass Lake.

Guest Access

Lovely garden and patio for breakfast outdoors, weather permitting, or indoors. Guests may use the laundry facilities. WiFi available. An RV site with hookups is also available.

Interaction with Guests

The host and hostess will be on hand to prepare and share breakfast with the guests.

The Neighborhood

Our home is situated on what once was the stagecoach road from Fresno to Yosemite.

  • Our experience at Carole and Sherman's was unbelievable ! We felt like at home and shared a lot of things with them. They are so sweet and give an amazing breakfast everyday. We'll come back for sure ! If you are still hesitating, jump on this opportunity, we will never have regrets.

  • We had a wonderful time exploring Yosemite and staying at Carole and Sherman's. Great room and private bathroom, amazing breakfasts, friendly dogs, and most of all - the warm hospitality. We felt like part of the family.
    Thanks for a great time.

  • One of our best experiences on Airbnb so far, Carol and Sherman where lovely hosts, everything including the amazing home cooked breakfast was perfect. Our only regret is not staying longer.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Carole and Sherman. Their house is beautifully decorated and landscaped. Carole and Sherman were both so warm and friendly. And their dogs were a delight! Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. We enjoyed having them on their outdoor patio each morning. They made it our home away from home, and we looked forward to returning each night. We would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • I love Carole and Sherman, their cozy home and their cute dogs! I wish I could have spent more time with them. One night is too short. I had a lot of fun chatting with them and playing with dogs. I already begun to miss them!

    Compared to my previous experience (the other two hosts in Oakhurst), Carole and Sherman's is the best! The bedroom is even nicer than the photo, and the bathroom for guests is also well decorated, clean and beautiful. And their wifi works well! Much better than previous ones. They prepare all things I could think of I need. As parents for 6 children, now grandparents, and even grand grandparents, they are definitely experts in taking care of others! You could feel full of welcome from every details. I feel like at home.

    They are very generous and caring. You could easily find this fact from stories of previous guests. They are happy to talk and play games with you till late in the night, or get up as early as 4 am to prepare breakfast in order for you to catch sunrise, or do things as you request. For me to see the starry sky, we went to the yard together and turned out all the lights! Cool experience. Though the stars are not that many that night, due to the bright full moon, I am still happy to watch the moon.

    Oh, and the breakfast, so hearty and delicious! We had fresh baked muffins, eggs, beacons, juice, coffee and several kinds of fruit! Carole is such a great cook that everything is yummy! Since she realized that I love her muffins, she packed the left for us as snacks. Before we left, they gave us a map and helped us figure out the best route to go. I would highly recommend them to my friends and I plan to stay longer if I would come next time! No hesitation, book early, it is quite hot :)

  • Sherman and Carole are absolutely two of the very best reasons for using Airbnb. Their home is beautiful, the garden areas wonderful and the meals on the veranda, delicious. We spent two nights with them while visiting Yosemite. Conversation with was easy, we seemed to hit it off with them right from the start. We even spent a few hours playing Sequence with them, sandwiched around a trip to the local watering hole for a drink and taco. The best was Carole's Terrific breakfasts. Be sure to ask for the special pancakes. I can still taste them. An added highlight was a look at Sherman's vintage cars, before, regrettably, we had to leave. Don't miss this place, if you're coming to Yosemite.

  • Carole and Sherman were very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible, including delicious omelets, pancakes, fruit, and more. The room was very comfortable and quiet. Our whole stay was perfect in all aspects. Highly recommended!

  • This was my first Airbnb experience sharing a room. Carole and Sherman made it a very welcoming, and helpful at all costs. You can tell they enjoy the opportunities to meet people from around the world. If your looking for a shared room, I'm assuming your comfortable with being social. Stories over wonderful breakfasts prepared by Carole make the trip. I traveled by myself and this was the best place I could go to. Their home is also close to either Yosemite entrance. Plan on 45min to an hour or your ride up there. It's really no different if your in the park or out of it. It goes by quick because of the scenery. Hopefully you choose this airbnb, because it will make the trip a success. Thanks Carole and Sherman.

  • We had a wonderful time with Carole and Sherman. They are so nice and friendly, that it is such a treat to come back after a hard full day of hiking and chat with them. The room is nice, clean and quiet and the delicious breakfast that Carole prepared for us gave us all the energy we needed for our hikes.
    We can only recommend it to anyone! If we ever come back in the region, we will definitely come back!

    Response from Carole & Sherman:

    Hi Malis and Francois,
    Thank you for the very nice review. Glad you enjoyed staying with us. We certainly enjoyed your visit with us, and hope you will come back again some day (and maybe bring the little ones with you?) You were great guests. We look forward to seeing you again!

  • The room is exactly as advertised: quiet, peaceful and private (and cosy too). From the moment we arrived Carole and Sherman made us feel at home and they kept on doing that each time we arrived back from a long day in Yosemite.

    The neighborhood is quiet and although they all require a drive, there are enough good restaurants (and Carole and Sherman will point you to good ones).

    The breakfast... ah... the breakfast. We will remember the breakfasts we had for years to come. Very tasteful, a great start of the day, deliciously prepared and if you are lucky: served in the morning sun in the garden.

    In short: really a great place to stay, highly recommended.

    Hi Sheila and Arno,
    Thank you for the wonderful review! You two were such great guests and we had a great time with you. We were so happy when you decided to stay an additional day and happy that we had it free so you could! You must come see us again. We truly have friends in The Netherlands!
