This was a great weekend getaway out in the countryside. We drove to Yosemite in the morning--spent the day in the mountains and came back to grill steaks! 5 stars--only thing I would add is that while grilling a rat almost got our food--remember you are very deep in nature lol we also saw deer, foxes, etc. it was beautiful in the mornings. We would definitely come back.

Accessing the house was extremely easy. The wifi was pretty spotty. But in reality all we used the house for was showering and sleeping.

Tchukon & Carolyn User ProfileTchukon & Carolyn is a superhost.

Originally from upstate New York, I moved to San Francisco in my 20's and lived there for 18 years. I had quite an exciting life in the city but in my 40's realized I needed a change from big-city living, which brought me to the beautiful mountains of Mariposa. I was trained as a french chef and love to talk about anything food related. Some of my other interests include photography, horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking, off-roading and most importantly...spending time with my family :)
Little bit about Carolyn
Asides for hosting interesting visitors from around the world. I am also part time nurse practitioner and full time mom (which I love more then anything). I have a fitness and diet addiction and when I have the time I enjoy spending it hiking in Yosemite :)
