My husband and I needed to spend a few days in the town of Mariposa and decided that it would give us an opportunity to spend some time exploring the town while attending a weekend event. We decided to rent "Doe's Cottage" and not commute back to our home over an hour away (on mountain roads). The accommodation is a hidden Sierra treasure. The rental price is a bargain. The furnishings are charming and sweet. The sparkling kitchen has everything you need. The home was very clean and the bed was "snuggly" comfortable. The bedrooms are located on the opposite side away from the main street (more quiet!) I was concerned that the street would be too busy.................but traffic almost disappeared after 6pm. I mistakenly left my car interior light on and a neighbor walking by knocked on my door to let me know so that it wouldn't drain the car battery. She also wished me a nice weekend. Nice to feel that I was in a friendly neighborhood where the neighbors keep an eye on each other.
I enjoyed walking to the downtown area where there are good restaurants, coffee, local beer and wine tasting and a new bakery. The historic Mariposa County Courthouse and Museums were an added plus to my visit.
"Doe's Cottage" is great to stay at for any of the local events (Storytelling, Blues Festival...........) or you can drive to Yosemite National Park...............only 45 minutes away to it's entrance at Arch Rock.
It was wonderful to re discover the town of Mariposa.
