The Ponderosa House is ideal for a relaxing mountain get-away or the perfect accommodation for exploring nearby Yosemite National Park.

It is perfectly situated for quick access to Yosemite, white water rafting on Merced River, wildlife viewing, wildflower viewing, skiing Badger Pass, or just enjoying the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The Ponderosa House comfortably sleeps up to 6 with all the comforts of home. Two bedrooms with queen size beds and one bedroom with a double size bed.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are light and airy. The house is tastefully decorated with many Yosemite themed photos. Wireless DSL is available for those needing to be connected. Washer and dryer is ready for those requiring fresh clothes. There is plenty of free parking on site.

The gorgeous drive through the Merced River Canyon brings you to Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House is conveniently located in the community of Midpines close to the Highway 140 corridor. The Yosemite National Park boundary is a 25-mile drive along the “all weather highway” which follows the Wild and Scenic Merced River (37 miles to Yosemite Village). The gold rush town of Mariposa is only 10 miles to the west. Merced is 45 miles, and the Fresno airport is a 90-minute drive. The Merced River Recreation Area (Briceburg) is less than 8 miles away.

Yosemite Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated house with lovely gardens about 50-60 minutes to Yosemite Valley. Comfortable beds, plenty of supplies; towels, dishes, pots and pans. Good wifi service in house. Used wifi calling to make phone calls. Six adults stayed there with 12 month old baby. Great house for a crawling baby since it was all one level and bedroom doors could be closed. Air conditioning in living room and one bedroom. Since temperatures drop at night, house could have been cooled off with a fan in window at night but there were no screens in many of windows, so couldn't do that. Would advise future guests to download directions to house ahead of time or print them out.since cell service is limited in town. Would highly recommend this rental.

Great place to stay for our Yosemite vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable to stay in. The kitchen is quite large so it’s easy to cook and prep food. The outside area is nice to eat breakfast or dinner on the patio. The area is generally quiet. Be sure to bring all the items you need in the kitchen as a couple things are missing that you may need- plastic wrap, aluminum foil, pepper, etc. Not a big deal but pick it up while you’re at the grocery store so you don’t need to make a second trip!

Wonderful Gateway to Yosemite Area

  • 5 of 5

The house is really spacious and tastefully decorated in every room. The kitchen is amazing! Lot's of light. The outdoor area is very peaceful....such as watching a hummingbird in the early morning after getting out of the hot tub. Renea handled a slight mix up with our stay very graciously, which only adds to giving them 5 stars. Great access to 140 hwy. heading into Yosemite.

Peaceful retreat house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! A group of four of us booked this house for our Yosemite trip and it was everything we wanted. The drive to Yosemite was an easy 40 minutesish to the park entry, the hot tub was PERFECT for our sore bodies after hiking all day, and the kitchen was large with everything we needed for cooking. The owners were responsive and answered all questions and concerns in a timely manner. We very much enjoyed coming home after a long day of walking/hiking and crowds to our peaceful retreat. Would book again!
