“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is only 1 room hotel ! Zimmer
lovely owner. Very modern and comfortable house.

a bit far from Mariposa's center (5 min drive). GPS dose not recognize Mariposa Inn as well as other people in town whom we asked. When you get there, there is a small sign with house number and you can't see the house between the trees

Room Tip: Only one room for a couple

Up a winding road past huge forest trees, threading your way between gigantic boulders, larger than you vehicle, around a bend in the road and you have arrived at The Inn at Mariposa. It sits on a bluff enveloped by 15 acres of forest. Here you will find peacefullness and a quietness only interrupted by soaring hawks gliding on the airways. Many stars decorate the night sky with a brillance seldom seem anywhere.

After a long dusty journey, come inside and leave your cares at the door. A cool white lounge awaits your tired feet. The sparkling wine glasses need filling, red or white? Nothing is required other than enjoyment. Fresh strawberries anyone?

I spent two heavenly nights at The Inn at Mariposa. If you have not guessed, I am a writer and my inspiration abounded in this heavenly place on earth. You will have at your disposal your own private suite looking out on the forest valley. You may see the forest residents at any moment. The adjoining patio is a good place to watch for them.

I could barely get out of the wonderful bed. Sleeping was no problem to someone who generally doesn't get much. The shower was equiped with a middle spray that I never experenced before. Simply heaven. The windows are open to the forest and you feel like you step out into it.

To top all of this, the lady who runs the place prepared me a homecooked breakfast with thick bacon and, fresh strawberries and mimosas. Did I spell that right? Anyway, I would highly recommend The Inn at Mariposa as a somewhat mystical trip into the forest. I'm sure I saw a bear in the trees.

Room Tip: The Inn at Mariposa at the moment has only two suites. They plan to expand in the near future.

My husband and I booked two nights at the Inn at Mariposa during our Yosemite vacation. The room was large and meticulously clean, with an incredibly comfortable bed and luxurious bedding. The bathroom had a tiled open shower and wonderful soaps, robes, etc. Elaine, our hostess, was gracious and the breakfasts were a treat. We liked the Inn at Mariposa so much that we cancelled two of our nights at the Wawona Hotel and stayed at the Inn instead! As charming as the Wawona Hotel is, the Inn at Mariposa is much more luxurious...for a much nicer price. We highly recomment this wonderful bed and breakfast.

From the luxurious bed and full body shower, to the scrumptious breakfasts, definitely a very relaxing atmosphere to unwind after my long days of hiking amongst the giant redwoods and hiking the endless trails of Yosemite. Very enjoyable retreat to come back to unwind, recap, and prepare for the next days adventures.
