    Additional Location Information
    The Yosemite Dome Home is located on a beautiful 60 acre horse 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 and fine dining.

We headed up a dusty remote track and were warmly welcomed by Irene and Brad who took us up to the holiday house. The house is definitely "rural" but that just means it has character and is so much less plastic than everywhere else we stayed on the trip. Brad came up to feed the cows and we sat outside... more

Just got back from a 5 day stay in the Dome Home, and it really was everything we wanted and more. Yes, it is "rustic" but we felt that added to the charm of the place. The decor was a little dated, but spotlessly clean, and quite honestly for roughly $250 a night for a family of 5 plus a... more

The owners were perfectly nice folks and were accommodating and I appreciated the free wifi and satellite tv. However, the place is in desperate need of updating. The vinyl floors were torn and beat up, the drywall was peeling in spots, and the back door did not latch (and had a gap that allowed two frogs to enter the house).... more

Management response:

We appreciate your comments but I do want to respond to a few things. The leak under the sink happened during your stay and it was fixed immediately when you told us. It had never leaked before. The back door has become an issue and we do have a contractor coming out to fix or replace it as we mentioned... more
