About Brian & Susan Hunter

Living so close to Yosemite we wanted to share such a beautiful and peaceful place with others and so we purchase this charming cottage. We have traveled all over the US, Mexico and Europe and feel fortunate to call Mariposa our home.

Brian & Susan Hunter purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

This is a perfect secluded location minutes from downtown Mariposa and short drive into Yosemite Park. This property also can be a destination vacation with all the amenities it offers.

Great House for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 11 really enjoyed our stay! The house has a really nice setup for families with kids... plenty of bedrooms/bedding upstairs, and a great room for TV and games downstairs. A short, beautiful drive into Yosemite was icing on the cake!

Excellent....definitely home away home

  • 5 of 5

Felt like home and Brian and Susan are wonderful... this home suits everyone and is less stressful to plan , you find everything you need and best thing is game room with Dart board , pool table , bar table , card games , and Jaccuzie and the patio/backyard..a number of chairs, and more than enough linens and you don’t need to carry anything...

This is a big house and my family and cousins enjoyed stay...look to be up there again in a summer ...
