Overview

About the property

From our beautiful sanctuary, follow the Wild and Scenic Merced River 40 minutes to the Yosemite National Park entrance. The charmingly historic but vibrant gold mining town of Mariposa is only 6 miles to the west.

Constructed in 2014/ 2015, this custom owner built mountain chateau is situated on the edge of a wild canyon at the end of a mile and a half graded gravel road. The year-round Plumbar Creek runs through these 56 private acres of mixed evergreen and oak woodland. This property borders the 2000+ square mile Sierra National Forest. No neighbors in sight, very majestic and peaceful!

Featuring rustic styling with a modern design (and high speed DSL Wi-Fi!), this lovely home includes a spacious, well-designed kitchen and a warm, hydronic-heated slab floors. There are two private bedrooms on separate floors and two bathrooms. A cozy indoor balcony features another queen sized bed and also serves as an entertainment center. Spend time on the large, sustainably-harvested redwood deck. Enjoy the spectacular beauty of sunrise and sunset while you grill and dine here.

From this mountain getaway, you can easily explore Yosemite, Mariposa Gold Country, and the Wild and Scenic Merced River. Chose from so many activities: hike Yosemite's spectacular trails, take a leisurely bike ride or float on a raft through Yosemite Valley, try hiking, backpacking or fishing in Yosemite's lovely high country, appreciate a unique shopping experience in Yosemite or Mariposa. Enjoy birding, gold-panning, or rock climbing. Closer to home, explore the Sierra National Forest on foot, on your bike or on your horse! We were born and raised in the Yosemite area, and we can help you make your vacation unique and memorable.

About Fritz and Lindsey

We found this 56 acres in 2009 after an exhausting search to buy a sizable piece of land in the area we grew up in. In February 2015 we finally completed our self- built dream home.

Our summer time work of living in the wilderness of the high sierra allows us to share this special place with travellers

Fritz and Lindsey purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why Fritz and Lindsey chose Yosemite Area

This was the only property we could find that met our criteria of being very private, having year around flowing water and bordering National Forest public land while being close to the town of Mariposa AND the Merced River and Yosemite. It has turned out to be a perfect blend of privacy while having the convenience of heading to yosemite or the river for the day while still being a short drive to town for shopping or a night out at resturaunts, saloons or concerts

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Our backyard borders Sierra National Forest, one of the biggest in the state at over 200 square miles, this in turn borders Yosemite National Park and all the wilderness and National forests and Parks of the entire Sierra Nevada mountains. The possibilities and freedom are endless!

Peaceful Luxury in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The Plumbar house is a peaceful sanctuary located about an hour outside Yosemite Valley in the town of Mariposa. This new, spacious,  three level home is off to itself, accessible by a long  remote gravel road. We did not see another person or car during our 2 night stay in the beautiful forest surrounding this home. We were so glad we did not stay in

Yosemite Park after seeing the crowds of tourists during peak travel season for this area.

The house is crisp and clean with an industrial,  rustic feel. The views from all of the windows including the master shower are panoramic,  forest views. The large screened in porch was especially nice. There is a washer  and dryer and even a pool table on the lower level. Plenty of space to spread out for two couples.

Fritz was extremely helpful with our many questions. We absolutely loved our stay in Mariposa.

This beautiful and unique house made our experience in Yosemite an unforgettable one!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 that are traveling in the west coast.

This house was extremely comfortable, clean, in a gorgeous spot on the mountain and in a heart of a forest.

I will stop here because words are too small to describe the experience we had- even if it was for a short time! (We also used the grill and BBQ and it was a blast!)

Thank u Fritz & Lindsey,

Hope to visit there again and soon 🙏❤️

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Plumbar House, could not find anything wrong with it - just the veranda door needs fixing - everything was clean, well organised and we loved the eco-friendly products and attitude.

Thank you!

The perfect weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This was everything that we hoped it would be. A little piece of secluded paradise and a great base to explore Yosemite and the surrounding area. We work stressful jobs in SoCal and needed some peaceful downtime and staying here was just what we needed.

The house itself is just what you imagine a cabin in the woods to be... with all your needs taken care of, its gorgeous. Mariposa is a short drive away for the shops or restaurants, and Yosemite is less than an hour to reach too. We left for the park at 6am each morning and this guaranteed us no traffic and parking was easy. We returned to the house mid afternoon to relax on the decking with beers and chips - perfection!

The only downside was that unlike some guests we didn't see any bears :( you win some, you lose some...

Aside from the park, we spent a couple of hours each day at the river in Briceburg, a great way to cool off.

This has been a truly great weekend, and having an amazing place to call home is definitely a big part of it. We will return!

Thanks!

wonderful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean and very roomy. It is very quiet and peaceful. Our first night there we had a bear wander through the yard. What a treat.
