Certainly our most tranquil, scenic and serene property, Vineyard View offers an extraordinary experience, aptly described as "There is magic on this mountain, we leave feeling full of contentment and calm". It is simply an ideal place for anyone.
Peacefully posed on a beautiful bluff, this stunning home is set in the center of eight private acres and is ideally located just outside the town of Mariposa, very near Yosemite National Park. This central location makes for EASY access into the two most popular entrances to Yosemite, both just a short and scenic drive from the house.
Most certainly, this a delightful retreat for couples, families and friends traveling together who want to be close to Yosemite yet still enjoy the luxury, comfort, and convenience of their own private vacation home. Vineyard View is beautifully furnished with exceptional style and thoughtful convenience and is all one level so no stairs to contend with. It has an all-new, FULLY-equipped kitchen, new, beautiful bathrooms, large, comfortable bedrooms, a children's play area and the most incredible view imaginable. It is a unique and delightful place that comfortably accommodates from two to six guests.
THE Living, Kitchen and Dining Areas...
The living room here is long and spacious and includes a sofa, love seat and armchair as well as children's furniture and more. This ensemble surrounds the stone fireplace and behind it is the Piano.
In the corner of the room you'll find the entertainment center with a TV, complete with satellite service & extensive channels, including HBO. There's a DVD/VCR player, stereo system, puzzles, board games, a bookcase full of interesting books and novels as well as a varied selection of movies.
At the opposite end of this room is the front entry and casual seating at the counter where you'll find the computer center and phone. Beyond this area is the big, open kitchen with all new appliances, gas stove, refrigerator w/ice maker, dishwasher, extensive cooking utensils and new tile countertops. Across this room is the delightful dining area that comfortably seats up to seven, the open floor plan here allows for comfortable, un-crowded companionship and the views from this room are amazing.
THE BEDROOMS and BATHS...
The large, Master Suite is located in the back of the house and has an Eastern King bed, a vanity/sink, private sitting area and large windows overlooking the magnificent views of the grounds and beyond.
The Gold Rush bedroom is also at the back of the house, opposite the Master bedroom and has a CA King bed, private reading area and large windows with beautiful views. These two rooms share the big, luxurious hall bath that is all new, complete with a claw foot tub below a picture window, a corner shower and mosaic tile floor. Conveniently, this bathroom sits between the bedrooms (so no shared wall between them) and is accessible from the hallway so no traipsing though someone's bedroom to get there.
In addition, there is a Queen-size Wall Bed in the living room (standard Sealy mattress, very comfortable); guests staying here have a door between this room and the hallway that offers total privacy from the other two bedrooms when closed. An added benefit of the wall-bed is its romantic proximity to the fireplace and floor to ceiling windows with incredible, distant views.
There is also a quaintly done bedroom in the large utility room where guests using the Wall-Bed can enjoy a private place for their personal belongings as well as their own full bath and a single bed for quiet afternoon naps, this room is also great for an older child, wanting their own little space.
A Full-size washer and dryer are located in this same room and for your convenience, we also provide earth-friendly laundry soap and even a drying rack for those of you who would like one. The washer and dryer are available to all our guests, regardless of the duration of their stay.
You'll find yourself in a magical place that will take your breath away. The area surrounding the home is flat, open and dotted with giant Oaks, Cedars and Pines, and the View,…well,… it’s incredible. Just 30 feet from the back of the house are a bench and cedar swing to sit in while you enjoy the vast panorama of the valley, vineyard and beyond.
Right out the back door is the small, fenced yard, to one side is the children's playground and to the other is the redwood table, great for outdoor dining. The free-standing fire pit is also there in the yard and beyond it is the tree swing, a hugely popular addition!.
Pass through the garden gate on out to the lanai, this is where you'll find the spa as well as yet another table and chair combination. Full-size (6-person), well-kept and in one of the most incredible locations you'll ever find, this hot tub is an amazing treat, the night sky is completely unobstructed and the stars from here are insane. Distant city lights twinkle and the quiet is remarkable, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven and will never want to get out.
Guests staying here can enjoy a day in nearby Yosemite and return home to sit back on the Verandah and enjoy the sun setting over the garden and view, the whispering winds blowing softly through the trees. One can also enjoy a leisurely stroll down the storybook lane to the tasting room of the award winning, Butterfly Creek winery, a family-run and very friendly place.
For the Children...
Vineyard View is an exceptionally unique vacation rental in that it is obligingly set up for the kids. We make a real effort here to cater to families traveling with children and offer the use of a wide variety of baby/child items such as a highchair, booster seat, Jogging stroller, baby backpack, crib and Porta-crib as well as small furniture, games, movies, books & toys. The home is exceptionally child friendly, thoughtfully baby-proofed and there is even playground equipment in the fenced backyard. You'll find a castle, as well as a plethora of interactive, and ride-on toys for the smaller children and if you're traveling with older children who need room to explore, there are trails to follow, trees to climb, even Ping Pong to play and a tree swing for fun to keep them occupied while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the views...

While vacationing at The Vineyard House, you'll avoid both the crowds, and the traffic and yet Yosemite National Park is only a 29 mile drive away via the beautiful, all weather highway (Hwy 140) which meanders through the Wild and Scenic Merced River Canyon.
This historic home is located at 2900' in elevation and does get an occasional, yet manageable amount of snow without causing difficult access or travel. A plethora of trees and the valley below provide welcome shade and afternoon breezes on those hot, sultry summer days.
The Merced River Recreation Area at Briceburg is just 11 miles away and has small, sandy beaches just perfect for picnics, wading, and summertime swimming. The river is also great for fishing, hiking, camping, wild life viewing, and for the even more adventurous, white-water rafting And kayaking. There are several commercial rafters who provide Trips down portions of the river.
The surrounding area offers a myriad of activities and adventure, we provide guests with a book full of endless suggestions of places to go and great, lesser known things to do.
You can easily enjoy Yosemite's south entrance from here too which is up Hwy. 41, outside of Oakhurst. Traveling that direction you'll find things to see and do such as the world famous Mariposa Grove's GIANT SEQUOIAS, the Amazing GLACIER POINT, Goat Meadow Winter Sports Area where you can cross-country ski or let the kids play and sled in the snow, beautiful BASS LAKE with its water sports, beaches and restaurants and the historic Sugar Pine Railroad adventure, just to name a few.
If you're looking for a rustic, relaxing place to stay while enjoying Yosemite and all its surrounding area has to offer, you just can't beat the location of this quaint, quiet and clean country cabin. "In all our years of renting vacation homes, this was our best experience ever!"
