About the property

The Ponderosa House is ideal for a relaxing mountain get-away or the perfect accommodation for exploring nearby Yosemite National Park. The Ponderosa House makes a wonderful retreat that is peaceful and relaxing in a beautiful foothill setting. 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 gourmet kitchen is open and spacious with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and completely stocked with cooking and baking tools. There is plenty of counter top space to prepare for your day’s adventure.

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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Ponderosa House during our trip to Yosemite. The house is clean, nicely decorated, and we had everything we needed. The kitchen is spacious, fully stocked and makes it easy to cook meals. We were so pleased with the amount of pots/pans/utensils etc. available for our use.

The outside area is amazingly quiet and peaceful.

The drive to Yosemite is easy and scenic. Was great to come back and relax in the hot tub after a strenuous day of hikes. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom and for using after hot tub. We loved the outdoor space where we cooked BBQ and had dinner under the sky.

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay! We would definitely recommend this place!

Beautiful house in a quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Renea's house was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Everything was as promised. The location near Yosemite was ideal. We enjoyed our privacy in Renea's house in the country and strongly recommend it!

Beautiful home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us enjoyed using this place as our home base duirng our Yosemite adventure in early July. Everything was as expected and up-to-date, clean, comfortable. The ONLY thing I'd advise others to watch out for is finding it for the first time in the dark! It's very private and peaceful. We enjoyed it very much.

Yosemite Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing inside and out. The gardens are beautiful. The hot tub was great after hiking. The sky is amazing at night. The kitchen has everything you need, but I would replace a few frying pans. We loved cooking on the outside grill. Before you go I would look up Raley's for your groceries since there is only small markets closer to the house. It took us about 50 minutes to drive to Yosemite. They have many options available for board games and puzzles. They provide plenty of supplies including laundry detergent. When we were there it was a hot spell so when we arrived the house was hot and it took the entire evening to cool since there were only 2 A/C window units. We did not have any problems with checkout. I would recommend this house for others for a great get away.

nice house in the woods

  • 3 of 5

This was a decent place to stay. Our main complaints were that we did not receive instructions for getting into the house until after I called and emailed more than once (because I had not received it by the first day of our trip, so I was worried our reservation had gotten cancelled). The other problem was that we did not receive any directions, and Google maps took us someplace completely different, so we had a lot of trouble finding the home. We had to drive down several unmarked roads, including one with a sign that said "private property, no trespassing" - it would have been helpful to get specific directions ahead of time so we knew what to expect. But the house is spacious and having a hot tub was wonderful.
