The Cottage and Log House Retreats are two charming sister properties with a century old history. While fully maintaining the original charm of their history, these rustic homes have been brought into current times with all of the modern conveniences. The two properties sit just over 300 feet from each other, which allows for privacy, while allowing the the feeling of togetherness on your terms. This makes it a perfect location for family reunions and trips with a group of friends.
More about The Cottage Retreat (3 bedroom with 2 full baths):
The Cottage Retreat is charming with a century old history. While fully maintaining the charm of its history, the Cottage has been brought into current times with all the modern conveniences.
In the Cottage you’ll find all the amenities you will need in this recently renovated (2015) 3 bedroom cozy cottage with 2 full baths. When you walk into Cottage Retreat, you won’t find the musty stuffiness, typical of many vacation rentals. There is all new vintage furniture. The modern kitchen has all new solid stone surface counters and is decorated to look and feel like an old style farm house. The Cottage decor is professionally done to feel comfy with great function. There are 3 flat screen tv’s, Wi-Fi and some cell phone services that work well (Verizon has been two or more bars). The Cottage can sleep 8 comfortably (2 on a sofa bed). There are two outside sitting areas – one is a front porch looking into the forest and the other belongs to the master bedroom with its own private deck to sit, allowing some private time. A bbq and a rock fire are set along the woods. The outside area is large and level, making it a great place for kids to play, ride bikes and explore nearby.
The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open, allowing you to enjoy watching your favorite movies or shows and to stay warm with the fireplace in the cooler months. We have central air-conditioning and heat for your comfort any time of the year and an all new easily accessible laundry area. Here is another nice unique feature – you won’t be bothered, while sleeping, by creaky floorboards with people walking above – the downstairs master bedroom has no second floor above it. Your new home is a two story farm house cottage with pine accents from the natural surroundings. You’ll find two bedrooms upstairs and 1 bedroom downstairs with its own bath. Natural materials were used to accent the home’s history lending to its warmth and the charm of times gone by. Look and you’ll see wood in the home that’s nearly 100 years old. The wordword upstairs is original, but reworked during the special renovation.
More about the Log House Retreat (2 bedroom with 2 full baths):
The Log House was more recently renovated as a secluded log cabin getaway, where you will find yourself away from the city noise, but privately tucked on a 40 acre parcel in the hills of Mariposa halfway between both Yosemite entrances – so you can experience the unique beauty of each with easy access during the summer and winter months!
This is not an old, forgotten about cabin, rather a cabin with the heart of the past, but conveniences of the present. The Log House Retreat is a two bedroom, two bathroom retreat that features updated everything!
The Log House Retreat is furnished with brand new appliances and furniture. The new kitchen has granite counter tops and new appliances with all you will need to prepare meals … or not. We have installed 3 flat screen TV’s for your enjoyment after you return from the park. You won’t find the typical musty smelling cabin here. Instead, you’ll be greeted by a meticulously cleaned cabin (just look at the reviews) with white fluffy towels of the type that you find in a fine hotel. How about an original log house with central air conditioning and heating? There is also free Wi-Fi for Internet or a ‘working’ holiday. Netflix is provided in the living room. The dining area and kitchen are all open, allowing you to enjoy watching your favorite movies or shows and to stay warm with the original stone hearth fireplace in those cooler

The property also has a beautiful old barn that is well over a century old. Come see the history!
More about the land:
Set on 40 secluded acres, the property will invite you to take hikes and enjoy the forested and scenic views. You can see the Sierra Mountains from locations on the property. Peace and quiet are the best things you’ll notice when you stay at the Retreats. The property is set back just off the main route 49 and is half way between two entrances to Yosemite Park. You’ll want to sample both easy, but different drives into Yosemite – either via the west entrance with Hwy 140 along the valley floor beside the Merced River or via the south entrance with Hwy 41 through the Sierra mountains.
You can come for the summer season, but you’ll find that the cabin is also the perfect hideaway in the fall, winter and spring. At 3300′, it is cooler in the summer but invites a blanket of snow in the winter, frequently providing our guests with that inviting and beautiful snowscape.
Come and visit! You won’t want to leave.

Wonderful Cottage We stayed in this cabin as a base for our recent visit to Yosemite. It was clean, comfortable cozy, and very relaxing. Having laundry facilities after a day of hiking in the park was really nice. The drive to the Valley Floor is 60-90 minutes but the scenery is so beautiful it's not really inconvenient. We found everything we needed for an enjoyable stay and more. Our hosts thought of everything. I'd definitely stay here again.
Fantastic place to stay! This was such a wonderful experience. The cabin itself is gorgeous, with wonderful matte furniture that really gave it a cozy, comfortable feel. I'd recommend this place to anybody - it's close to Yosemite and offers a great escape.
5 Star property !! We were so impressed with the standard and location of the property we have already recommended to friends and family, the cottage was so clean and welcoming and everything you would need was available and even a few treats from Michelle, such effort had been put into the cottage you could tell Michelle cared about her visitors, I would highly recommend if you are on a bit of a road trip like we were to make this a definite stay.
