About Brian & Susan Hunter

Living so close to Yosemite we wanted to share such a beautiful and peaceful place with others and so we purchase this charming cottage. We have traveled all over the US, Mexico and Europe and feel fortunate to call Mariposa our home.

Brian & Susan Hunter purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why Brian & Susan Hunter chose Mariposa

This is a perfect secluded location minutes from downtown Mariposa and short drive into Yosemite Park. This property also can be a destination vacation with all the amenities it offers.

Absolutely Incredible

  • 5 of 5

I had a large group with very picky tastes and this house made everyone happy! The views are magnificent, the beds are super comfy, and the hot tub was a great place to relax in. The location was decently close to Yosemite, great weather during the day, and lots of board games and movies for the nighttime. Thank you Brian and Susan for having us!
