New Spacious & Clean Family Friendly Home Near Yosemite**

Bedrooms 3
Space 222 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


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!

Clean, cozy and great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this beautiful home. It had everything you could possibly need and more. A whole loft/play room for kids, outdoor toys and space for outdoor exploration. The beds were very comfortable as well as the rest of the furniture. The house was very clean and modern with modern touches unlike a lot of other cabins that have dated furnishings and decorations.

Thank you Allison and Mark for our fabulous stay. We can’t wait to visit your home again, hopefully in the summer or fall.

Wonderful Christmas Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home!!!! It is better in person than it is in photos. The kitchen is huge and there's plenty of room for a large family of adults as well as kids. The privacy and amenities were very enjoyable and we will definitely be returning!!! We definitely recommend this beautiful vacation home!!!

This was our second time staying at this rental. It is incredibly clean and private. It is a little ways away from Mariposa, but the drive is lovely. We love the Health Food Store and Cafe in Mariposa. It is great for all our food allergies. The home has strong WIFI and all the essentials. Everyone loves being there. We also love the handcrafted soaps. There is something for everyone.

Peaceful and Private

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice time and saw deer every night when we came home!! Very clean and well-kept! We didn't actually spend alot of time at the home because we were out enjoying the sights during the day!! We usually got home after dark but enjoyed our time relaxing in the evening and enjoyed our mornings before we left!! We would recommend this place to anyone and we would come back again!! Beautiful drive to Yosemite and close to Mariposa for resturants, etc. !!

Great family home!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay at "home" for vacation this place is definitely it. There were all the comforts of home and then some. We couldn't get enough of the horseshoe pit! The location is great too. Plenty of privacy, but still relatively close to town.

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.
