Yosemite Ranch offers a unique opportunity to experience dome home living on our secluded 60 acre ranch. We are only a 25 mile scenic drive from Yosemite National Park and only 6 miles from the beautiful wild & scenic Merced River, a popular destination for fishing, swimming, and whitewater rafting. The Yosemite Dome Home is located on the top of a private oak studded hill offering scenic views in several directions. It is quite common to see some of the numerous deer in the area grazing in the pasture or wild turkeys wandering by. Enter the Yosemite Dome Home and enjoy the spacious feeling created by the big picture windows and the high domed ceiling complete with skylights.

The Yosemite Dome Home is located on the top of a private oak studded hill offering scenic views in several directions.

Enter the Yosemite Dome Home and enjoy the spacious feeling created by the big picture windows and the high domed ceiling complete with skylights. Almost everyone remarks upon entering that the Home 'looks so much bigger on the inside.' The main floor offers a master suite with a queen size bed, dresser, and two closets. The beautiful dining area looks out a large picture window to a view that goes for miles over several ridge lines. There is a large living area with comfy couches to relax on or enjoy the large screen high definition satellite TV and DVD player. Free DSL internet access is also available. A wood burning stove and gas heater add warmth during the cooler seasons. During the hotter months enjoy the refreshing cool breeze of the evaporative cooler. The spacious kitchen includes a gas range, oven, microwave oven, and refrigerator. Out the rear door, is a yard fenced with six foot high chain link. Heading upstairs, you will find the 'Slumber Party Loft' which has a private dressing room and two 'wings' each with two twin beds and end tables, chairs, and lamps. The Dome Home has one bathroom with a smaller but adequate shower, sink, and toilet. While the bathroom is not fancy, the Dome Home makes up for this in spacious accommodations, beautiful views, and peace and quiet. The numerous quiet gravel roads in our area are ideal for beautiful and peaceful hiking. All necessary linens, towels, and bedding are included as well as dishes, glasses, silverware, and a coffee maker. Total maximum occupancy of six. Please note that rates are based on double occupancy. If you have more than two guests, please be sure to enter the correct number of guests when booking to get the correct rate.More

About the neighbourhood
The Yosemite Dome Home is located on a beautiful 60 acre ranch located on a private gated road in a quiet rural area with few neighbors. You can enjoy peaceful walks down the gravel road or come down to the main ranch and visit the horses. The Dome Home sits on top of a ridge with fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. The Merced River is only 15 minutes away and offers outstanding trout fishing and swimming in the summer months as well as white water rafting in the spring. It is a beautiful, scenic drive through the Merced River Canyon to Yosemite National Park. We are also only 15 minutes away from the historic gold rush town of Mariposa which offers shopping, museums, and fine dining.
Getting around
Having a car is the easiest way to get around but there is a Yarts bus stop in Midpines for those that prefer to ride the bus into Yosemite
