Come enjoy the changing seasons of the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills and YOSEMITE National Park. Clear blue sunny skies by day and stargazing at night!
Manzanita Hill is a beautifully furnished upscale vacation home, fully renovated in 2016. It has all-new flooring, paint, doors, cabinets, sinks, counter tops, windows, appliances and more. Located in the Sierra foothills at approximately 3000' elevation, between Mariposa and Oakhurst, this home has convenient access to both the west and south entrances of Yosemite Park. There are great things to see and do inside both park entrances. Bass Lake is also nearby, with its sandy beaches, good swimming and boat rentals. We provide lots of detailed info at the home to help you enjoy your stay to the fullest. You're welcome to walk this 7-acre property along our private groomed hiking path, to enjoy the beautiful scenery both near and far! This open-floor-plan 3 bedroom / 2 bath home is augmented by ample outdoor living space. There is a large partially covered front deck with dining table and an even larger back deck with BBQ and two dining tables and comfy outdoor seating where you can be immersed in quietude and beauty. You'll enjoy the attractive custom carpentry and stone work that has been done to make the back deck blend seamlessly into the surrounding granite boulders, trees and natural landscaping. At night you'll love the ambience of a majestic Manzanita tree which is illuminated! This home sleeps 8 comfortably, with two queen size beds, two twin beds and a queen size sleeper sofa. Hi-speed WIFI is provided, so bring your devices! The Verizon cell phone signal is strong and a land-line phone is also provided for local calls.
This home has a tasteful and warm historic-western-lodge decor that harmonizes beautifully. The living room includes accents of antique heirloom furniture in the midst of comfortable new upscale furnishings. There is even a real western saddle on display in the corner along with an elusive Jackalope mounted on the wall. A large flat screen TV is built into the rustic stone fireplace. The open and spacious fully equipped kitchen has quartz counter tops, ample rustic hickory cabinets, new appliances, and everything you'll need for preparing and serving your meals. Comfort is assured with forced-air central heating and air conditioning throughout. You'll never run out of hot water with our instant on-demand water heater.
The large dining table seats six. The adjacent breakfast bar also seats six on comfortable bar stools. A nearby game table seats 4. All three bedrooms are down the hall and everyone has easy access to a bathroom. The master bedroom suite has a western/southwestern decor with access to the master bathroom. The second bedroom has a prairie-style decor accented by an intricate heirloom quilt on display, and the third bedroom is more American with historic touches.
