Vacation Home Starlit Chalet
3109 Wild Dove Lane, Mariposa, CA 95338, United States of America – Good location – show map
A unique chalet on a mountain ridge at 3,800’ with dramatic views of Sierra terrain and forest. Silence, privacy, and the star-rich southern sky, yet only 12 miles from quaint Mariposa, a California Gold Rush towns. Fresh air, sweet mountain water, wildlife, and a wrap-around redwood deck with a Weber BBQ. The great room with it’s 3-story view also features a bamboo dance floor - turn on the Bluetooth stereo with music from your cell and choose your partner! Another deck shared by two loft bedrooms provides a quiet place for reflection. Your connection with nature begins the moment you enter your mountain home. And when night descends and you step out on the deck, the splendor of the Milky Way overwhelms! Starlit Chalet! Binoculars and star chart provided.
Owner Paul Weiss has hiked Yosemite for 15 years and divides his time between the Sierra and Argentina. A video essayist and amateur nature photographer, his travels have taken him to Antarctica, the Canadian Yukon, Argentina's Andes, Mexico and Central America. And, if you are a risk-taker, Paul can be persuaded to teach a lesson or two of Argentine tango.
Our guests appreciate that we’re halfway between Yosemite’s two main entrances: Arch Rock Entrance (36 miles) and Wawona Entrance (48 miles). Play golf 18 miles away and in Yosemite. The State Mining and Mineral Museum is 10.6 miles away and the Mariposa Natural History Museum a couple miles further. Hiking begins outside our front door. Also, tennis, handball, basketball, summer swimming, and play area in the town park. Swim in the Merced River at two state parks, accessed at Briceburg.
