** tip-hwy 140 and 49 are speed traps DO NOT SPEED
TIP- gps may tell you to take triangle rd from Yosemite along hwy 49. DON'T TAKE IT. It only saves a few minutes and is very dark and windy with several turns and you will. Iss the whole town of mariposa. stay straight on hwy 49
Will discuss after booking. YOU MUST HAVE PRIOR PERMISSION TO ENTER OUR HOME BEFORE 4PM. TEXT MESSAGE OR CALL TO ARRANGE. THANKS :)
Interaction with Guests
well educated about the area. love to visit and share stories, even a meal but also respect privacy if that is your will.
what I enjoy most of this area is Sharing it with the world . The views, fresh air, animal and bird life and the quiet.
** Please drive slowly on our road.
**Please follow ALL DIRECTIONS carefully. Do not go to the neighbors homes.
Only transport is from merced or Fresno to oakhurst or mariposa then YARTS to Yosemite. Go online for info. Rental car is best . Yosemite takes a lot of driving and time to get to and explore.
Other Things to Note
We except guest/friends at our own discretion. We have dogs and cats and horses and donkeys and chickens. The dogs will think you only came to see them and act like your best friend in the world for about 5 mins. Then you are just part of the family and the excitement is over, HAHA . They do not go into the areas of guests unless you invite them briefly. All areas are well cleaned after each guests stay. We do "live" here so expect imperfection in our living areas. Thank-you.
