Dramatic setting on Yosemite’s doorstep with spectacular views on 9.6 acres, this chalet is waiting for someone who wants to live close to nature, stop paying rent AND earn enough from renting part of the chalet for only 3-4 months to pay the mortgage. Do the math! And because of its great location in a major gateway to Yosemite, this custom home has had 7 years as a successful vacation rental as we’ve enjoyed living all year in Mariposa’s loveliest area. Lots of wildlife, billions of stars and surrounded by the great forests and mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Featuring a wrap-around redwood deck, a bamboo dance floor in the Great Room, an attached full suite with a 2-car garage, this home is at almost 3,800 ft elevation on forested acreage that boasts panoramic views of the Sierra National Forest, Buckingham Mountain, and two mountain ridges. The rental portion of this home with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths is completely furnished and offers guests a fully equipped kitchen, great WiFi, Bluetooth, Apple TV, ample parking, and much more. The chalet is 20 minutes from historic Gold Country Mariposa, 1 hour from UC Merced, 75 minutes from Fresno’s River Park, and equally distant between the Arch Rock and the Wawona entrances to Yosemite.
