“Great home for a small wedding reception at Yosemite”
Reviewed 13 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

My son and his fiancee wanted to get married in Yosemite at the Mariposa point, which is in the southern end of the park. Because it is about 1/2 hour to the closest motel, we decided to try to find something closer.
This vacation home has it all. We used the 3 bedrooms for our side of the family to stay in, and split the cost. Very cost effective. The house is big and we didn't run into each other.
Because it was muddy at Mariposa Point, on the wedding day, the ceremony was conducted in front of the Fireplace in the living room. There was plenty of room for all 13 of us. We even were able to dance, when we moved the furniture back. The living room also has a big screen TV.

The dining room has a table that will accomodate 10, and we rented another 5 ft. table to add to the end to accomodate the other guests. There was plenty of room. There is a rental company in clovis that I got all of my dishes, tablecloths, silverware, etc. for the wedding reception. We cooked. No caterers in the area want to cater for such a small group.
The kitchen was great and you can tell the owners want this to be a top notch place.

We ate outside on one of the decks. (there are two furnished decks) because we set up a buffet in the dining room, we just walked outside to eat. We had a dinner later in the dining room.

For fun, if you are not a hiker, there is a "new" foosball game upstairs next to a futon, that I think can be used as a bed. Also, there are alot of games and books.
In the garage, there is a ping pong table and a pool table set up and ready to use.
They also have a washer and dryer, which is a real plus, because we were there a week.

We rented from the Redwoods Management Co. When we had a question about the fans and the fireplace, in the living room, they were over right away to show us how to use them.

Make sure you bring food staples (salt, pepper, sugar, cooking oil, etc., because there is NO food there. Shop at Vons in Oakhurst, before you come. There is a small market , near the house, on the way to the rental office (walking distance) which was very well stocked- for being in the middle of nowhere, and found everything we needed. Yosemite is big.

There are two bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom and they were both very nicely decorated. Alot of pictures and books on the area, from way back when.

It was very peaceful, and you could enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the "Blue Cardinal" really a Stellar Blue Jay, visiting his nest nearby. We even saw deer wandering by the road, in the meadow by the house. We were there in May so there was a little snow in parts of the park, but the waterfalls were beautiful, and the hiking was great. It takes about 45 minutes to get to the north end of the park. Mariposa grove is at the south end and has the big redwoods, it's closer to the house. The Wawona hotel has entertainment at night at the bar. We didn't have time, but will go next time.

Lots to do there-just not enough time.
Check with Redwoods for specials. We got an extra day free with a rental of 6 days.
It was a bit pricey, but if you split the cost, it is worth it.
