About this listing

Close to Yosemite in the heart of downtown in the village of Mariposa, the Arbor Suite Garden Apartment is surrounded by restaurants, shops, museums, creek walk and trails to hike and mountain bike. YARTS transit, just 1/2 block away, will take you directly into the park, and back again!

The space

This private suite is in the very heart of the historic little goldrush town of Mariposa. The entrance to Yosemite National Park is just a 45 minute drive, up the #140, all-weather highway, along the Merced River Canyon, that leads to all the splendor of Yosemite!
As you walk through the front entrance of your suite you are greeted by the warmth of hardwood floors and deeply colored walls. Of your living room. A flat screen TV is there in the alcove and two comfy antique chairs are there to relax in after a wonderful day of adventures. To your right is an antique Italianesque Buffet, and if you open the lower doors you will find an assortment of games and puzzles to spend an entertaining evening with. Ahead is the cozy, well supplied, full kitchen with built in dining nook, and your very own garden through the windows, there to enjoy as you create and dine. A look up above you and you will find the tin ceiling.
Through the door to your left, you find the richly appointed bedroom, boasting a lofty four poster deep cherry bed. Llighting is there by your bedside, and the cieling fan above your bed is remote controled for both a soothing breeze and some romantic lighting. Here also is the fully tiled bathroom with both tub and shower, and a convenient 'beauty spot' for a relaxing moment to prepare yourself for an evening on the town.
Downtown Mariposa is just outside your front door, and I have made certain there is a cozy outside area, just for you, where you can enjoy your morning coffee or just sit and watch the world go by.
Mariposa is just 2.6 hours from San Francisco, 1.2 hours from Fresno, and only 45 minutes from Merced. There is a small municipal airport just 10 minutes from town. The Arbor Suite Garden Apartment is surrounded by fine restaurants and unique little shops, all within a three block radius. Catch the Via bus just a half a block away and ride up the river canyon of the Merced River and into Yosemite National Park and visit our award winning history museum.
Included are, Cable TV, Wireless internet, parking, refrigerator & microwave, hairdryer, iron & ironing board.
For your pleasure and convenience there is NO check-in or check-out. You will receive a text or email with your key code to the keyless entry system of your room at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled date of arrival.

This is a great location in Maraposa right in the heart of things. Wifi is spotty regardless of where you are in the mountain so be aware of that. Carol was great.

We really wanted to stay in Yosemite NP but it was all booked out so Mariposa was the next best choice. I think we were somewhat fortunate to get this place and Unit 4 is right at the back away from the main street. We met two other residents of this complex of units and rooms - both very nice people - so we felt in good company. Carol the host, was very good with email communication which we appreciated, before and during our travel, however we could not find her during our stay. We tried on all three days of our stay and would have liked to have met her. This is an old building but the owner keeps these rooms clean and there has been some maintenance and renovations. The door code worked fine however the screen security door did not close (defeating the purpose of a screen security door!) and lighting in all rooms except the bathroom was poor. At $A250 a night this was an expensive stay for such a rural and small town. However, Unit 4 was comfortable and cool, with a useful ceiling fan above the bed which turned very slowly and quietly all night. Nearby rooms had noisy air conditioners on all night but this was not a major problem in our bedroom so we slept well. Thank you Carol!

Carol was such a sweet host, and was very accommodating. She communicated well, and was very knowledgeable about the area! Would love to come and stay with her again!

Carol's place is beautiful and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay here as a couple and would recommend it. Mariposa is a beautiful town with some great bites and we loved how close it was to some of the beautiful nature California has to offer. We enjoyed staying at Carols Airbnb and would definitely recommend it!

I am a dyed in the wool mountain girl. The sierra are my home and will be, hopefully, for eternity. I love a good hike to the top of a mountain and the run back down. I like to travel and break away to parts unknown as often as possible. I am a bit of an entrepreneur and have a few businesses always in the planning stages. People tell me I work too hard, but I like the movement. Yoga, Tai Chi and Ukulele are a part of each day for me, even if I only have a couple of minutes to devote to them. Life is beautiful here!
I have spent the last 18+ years renovating the building that is home to The Arbor Suite and it's sister properties, The Arbor Suite Studio, The Arbor Suite Garden Apartment, and soon to be added, The Arbor Suite Studio 12. I hope you all will enjoy the fruits of my labors! It is a very cozy, comfortable and well appointed destination for a tired traveler wanting some pampering. ;)
Come for a visit!
