John and Wendy have explored, worked and lived in the
Yosemite area since 1991. The peaceful beauty, accessibility to outdoor
activities, and variety of local wildlife were a big part of our decision to settle
in the Sierra foothills. We bought the 11 acre Midpines property in 1992 and built the lower guest house, Manzanita Guest House, in 1993 and the upper house, Pine Hill Guest House, in 1997. Both houses have been freshly refurbished for your holiday comfort.
Our cousins and in-laws Jon and Shanna grew up in California. Both have memories of time spent with their respective families camping, rafting and enjoying Yosemite and the Sierra. They currently live in the Bay Area traveling to the Mariposa area several times a year to visit family, friends and the park.
Both couples have traveled using vacation rentals and know the value of a comfortable home to plan activities from. Together we would like to welcome you to our guest house. Mariposa County is great place to unwind, and the boundary to Yosemite National Park is 25 miles away. Shanna is available by phone or internet to book reservations and to answer questions. Wendy and John are located in the Mariposa area to assist you on-site, offer local recommendations or allow you to enjoy complete, uninterrupted privacy at Pine Hill Guest House. The Pine Hill Guest House was constructed, by us, in 1997. The cabin is located on a knoll offering forested, mountain views in every direction. The outdoor living area has several seating areas to put your feet up, a BBQ to prepare meals and an outdoor dining area to enjoy complete privacy.
On the ground floor, the saltbox style cabin has two living areas. The first kitchen/dining/living area is a comfortable space to prepare meals, relax or watch TV. The other half of the downstairs is the recreation room with additional living space to unwind. The recreation room has a book exchange, ping-pong table, dart board, some board games and puzzles. The area also offers pantry storage for the kitchen, a second refrigerator, laundry facilities and room for outdoor gear.
The second story of the guest house has two bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedrooms are named for their orientation. The Sunrise Room faces towards the east displaying beautiful moonrises and the glowing morning sun. The Sunset Room faces towards the west, countering with lovely moonsets and the colors of the setting sun. Both rooms feature new Queen sized mattresses & luxurious bedding.
