Mariposa Farmhouse is located in rural Mariposa County. There are no regularly opened stores or businesses near our BnB. In Mariposa just 12 minutes south by car and there are a variety of stores and restaurants, including a health food store and deli. Just west of Mariposa there is a rock shop where you can find some local minerals and even ask about local rock and mineral hunting.
Because the pace in Mariposa is slower than large cities, you will find that shop owners and people you meet on the street are willing to take the time to have a conversation with you. This is one of my favorite things about this area.
Public transportation access to Mariposa is a bus from Merced called YARTS. The same bus also serves Yosemite National Park which is about 1 hour east of Mariposa. You can get to Merced from other large cities by Amtrak. If you fly your own plane we can pick you up from the Mariposa-Yosemite airport just 7 minutes away.

Often in late summer there are great swimming holes along the Merced River. Some of the best swimming is near Briceburg. Please be careful, in early summer the river can be too fast and high for swimming.
