We are visiting Yosemite for three nights later this year and found a lovely rental beyond Mariposa-45 min drive to valley floor.Pretty meadowey setting rather than within the woods.
Then i stumbled across a lovely cabin in the woods in Pine Mountain lake community- same price,looks nice maybe not quite as well appointed as the mariposa place but very much in the woods as it were.Both work out the same price- one has a hot tub one doesn't.
Trying to choose but am guessing mariposa and groveland are similar kinds of places- we will probably visit them on an evening but will be eating in all nights.Groveland must be a longer journey to the vallelly floor but i guess it is the same park entrance?
Any insight on which area may be preferable with two small kids in winter would be helpful.
Thank you in advance;))
