About the property

Brand new custom home with 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 lofts

Escape the crowds of Yosemite and stay at the OakStone House. Located 10 minutes from the charming town of Mariposa and 45 minutes from the majesty of Yosemite National Park, it is the perfect location for your vacation in the Sierra.

The OakStone House was completed in 2013. Sitting on 5 private acres and 2400 sq. ft in size, it has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and can sleep 8 people.


The Great Room has ample space to fit your group very comfortably. It has a large sectional couch and recliner chair, wood burning stove, a 48' HDTV and an upstairs loft. Satellite and WiFi are included. The loft is the kid's corner with games, puzzles, books and toys as well as a futon and papasan chair for extra sleeping and hanging out.

Indulge your inner Julia Child in the fully equipped kitchen and adjoining dining area, or relax with a snack at the 6 ft butcher block island.

The laundry room includes a HE washer, dryer, an extra sink and another full refrigerator. There is also an outdoor line to hang your clothes in the fresh mountain air.


All 3 bedrooms are located on the other side of the house, separated by a door away from the main living area. They each have new, comfortable beds and their own heating/cooling units.

The master bedroom has a solid wood Calking bed with high quality linens and it's own private access to the backyard and spa. The attached bathroom includes a pedestal tub and separate shower, double vanity with granite countertops and a water closet.

Both the second & third bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and lofts. The kids bedroom has a solid wood twin over full size bunk bed with a twin size trundle underneath. The other bedroom has a very comfortable queen iron bed and an antique dresser.


Enjoy the beautiful covered patio outside the Great Room. Play a game of horseshoes, darts or sit on the deck down by the seasonal creek and revel in the glorious views of granite outcroppings, towering oaks, manzanitas, elderberry, and wildflowers.

Refresh yourself in a private outdoor shower or relax in our unique outdoor spa: rustic, reclaimed 'his and her's' claw foot tubs filled with heated pristine mountain water. Soak away your aches and pains and all the cares in the world!


We make a real effort to cater to families with children and offer the use of a wide variety of items such as a highchair, Pack-n-Play (travel crib) with an attached changing table, baby gate, a single BOB stroller as well as lots of books & toys. Outside, you'll find a play house, small climbing structure with slide and several riding toys for the smaller children.

For the older kids there is a ping pong table and foosball table in the garage and a tire swing on an old oak tree. They will also love hanging out in the bedroom lofts!

Beautiful Setting, Great for Kids

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because of the amenities they offered for small children. We traveled with a 1 and 4 year old. It was super helpful to have a pack and play, highchair and gobs of toys to play with... even a step stool and stroller. The proximity to the park was a good 45-50 minute drive which was a slight downfall (just riding in the car so much with small children)... but an interesting drive non the less and good to be close to a town that offered groceries and other odds and ends.

The house layout was wonderful, very well kept and clean. Nice finishes. The beds were comfortable. There is a lot of property to wander along with kids play toys out side even swings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend to friends.

Great Place to stay for Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

Had 4 nights with my parents at the house and really enjoyed our time there. It is about a 40 minute easy drive to Yosemite's entrance and about a 10 minute drive to Mariposa. Rooms were large, extremely clean, and very comfortable. We didn't get to spend much time outdoors on the property due to the heat, but the patio was very comfortable with the overhead fan.

I would definitely go back and stay on my next trip with a group to Yosemite.

Thanks for being such great hosts!

The house was lovely. We enjoyed staying there.

The property is just an hour from the Yosemite park so it was perfect for us. The town of Mariposa is just a few minutes away with very good choices for meals and the market has everything you may need. We loved the house.

Nice and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and home. The house was a perfect fit for our family group of 7 and we could have fit a few more comfortably. Loved the location, the peacefulness. A bit of a drive to Yosemite, though.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here during our 3 day trip to Yosemite and we LOVED this home! So beautiful. The land is awesome, we saw deer every night. Lots of toys and fun things for the kids to do. Plenty of room for a family. It's about a 40 minute drive to Yosemite Valley but the drive is gorgeous and worth it. It was such a cozy experience and we loved staying here!

The OakStone House is located just 45 minutes from Yosemite National Park boundary and 1.5 hours from the majestic Yosemite Valley. Along the way, enjoy the drive through the Wild and Scenic Merced River Corridor. Pull over and jump into inviting swimming holes, take a photo, enjoy a stroll through beautiful wild flowers to an old gold mine, or just have a picnic along the way.

After your day in Yosemite enjoy the charming old mining town of Mariposa which is only 10 minutes away. Restaurants, bars, ice cream and shopping abound! Check the Mariposa Chamber of Commerce for weekly events and local entertainment.
