It is located at the base of the Mother Lode and is loaded with history. The cottage is just a block away from Historic down town Mariposa and walking distance to the bus stop for Yosemite or the Central valley. Mariposa has a home town atmosphere with a wonderful museum, fairgrounds with a mineral museum, some great new restaurants and no stoplights!
Mariposa Doe's Cotage

Enjoy a warm cozy relaxing fire with the push of a button. No wood chopping or smoky fire. A all electric simulated fire with heat is nestled in the old fireplace.

Visiting Yosemite
From Doe's Cottage you have a choice of three entrance gates to enter Yosemite National Park. The fastest and most direct way to Yosemite is Hwy 140 along the Merced River. It is a half hour to the Yosemite Arch Rock Entrance and then a half hour into Yosemite Valley. Another popular route is through the pretty country foothills on Hwy 49 South through Oakhurst to Hwy 41 North where you enter the pines on your way to the South Gate Park entrance at Wawona. At this entrance is the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.

The third option, Hwy 49 North will take you through some of the old wild west gold rush towns of Coulterville and then to Hwy 120 through Groveland and to the park's Big Oak Flat west gate. On any of these routes you see plenty of California's rich history. Yosemite speaks for it's self but after you book we can suggest our favorite spots. If it's the gold country your after, Hwy 49 North to Jamestown and Columbia are just and hour away. If you are visiting the new Merced UC college you are about 40 minutes from campus.

We have high standards of cleanliness and coziness. Enjoy cooking at the Cottage or having access to many of the quaint coffee shops or restaurants. Some enjoy the opportunity of some nightlife offered in Mariposa that isn't offered in Yosemite Park when the sun goes down. Also enjoy a less crowded atmosphere of a hotel or the crowded park. Explore the gold country one day and visit the park the next. Chose your park entrance for the day as to what you want to visit in the park. The direct route is Hwy 140 to Yosemite Valley. The south gate for Mariposa Big Trees (our spectacular Giant Sequoias), Wawona and into Yosemite Valley. Or take a curvy Hwy 49 to Hetch Hetchy, and into Yosemite or continue on to Jamestown, Sonora or Columbia Wild West towns. Being in Mariposa locates you centrally to explore all these sights. Welcome International visitors. This is also a great base camp for all our visitors from out of the country, your chance to live and visit small town America. So give us a call if you wish to book or want more information.
