Posada Mariana is a destination unto itself. Its rural setting offers quiet tranquility, soothing the soul and offering an environment conducive to rest and relaxation. The Posada’s architecture echoes that of an old Spanish Hacienda where each guest room has a private entrance from a central courtyard. Each of the four guest rooms are named after Mexican towns: Vallarta, Oaxaca, Tulum and Cuetzalan. The home is set on 25 acres in the Sierra Nevada foothills, surrounded by blue oaks and granite outcroppings, offering scenic views including some breathtaking sunsets. Whether you enjoy bird-watching, star-gazing or simply soaking in an unspoiled natural setting, this is the place. The historic, gold rush era town of Mariposa is 20 minutes away, offering museums, shops, pubs and several good eateries. Yosemite National Park lies past Mariposa, 30 miles further east via Highway 140 as it follows the Merced River on a beautiful drive into Yosemite Valley.
