Are you ready for an epic experience? Come stay in our two bedroom modern home on California’s largest alpaca ranch, located just outside of historic Mariposa, the Gateway to Yosemite. Whether it is watching the sunset over the mountains from our gazebo by the pond or having your morning coffee with one of our 250 alpacas, the Alpaca Ranch House will be a place you won’t soon forget. In fact, once you are here…you may not want to leave!
Our two bedroom, one bath ranch is ideal for couples, families or a group of friends looking for a unique place to stay while visiting the Yosemite region. This newly renovated house comes equipped with a large screen smart TV, WiFi, toiletries, and all kitchenware needed to make a home-cooked meal, including a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Guests will have access to a dedicated area where they can get up-close-and-personal with the alpacas!
We are located just 14 minutes outside of Mariposa, a town reminiscent of the old west where you will find a variety of gift shops, including our own Epic Alpacas Boutique and Outlet, fine dining, watering holes and a whole lot of history. This area is a goldmine for off the beaten path hiking and biking trails, swimming areas and nature activities, from gold panning to ziplining, there is a little something for everyone. Yosemite National Park is just an hour drive with panoramic views and historical landmarks along the way. However, many have declared that their visit to Epic Alpacas was the highlight of their trip to the area!
For your protection, we offer keyless entry with a personally programmed code that will be provided prior to your arrival. Guests will have access to the entire house including an adjacent patio with an up close and personal view of some of our alpacas.
We also provide two areas for you to enjoy the best that nature has to offer: Vista Point, which is located just a few steps from the house overlooking the property, and Nature Point Gazebo, a short distance walk down to the pond. Each area provides a table with umbrella, seating for six and vantage points with spectacular views.
Interaction with Guests
The owners/hosts, Steve & Casey, live in a separate home on the 45-acre property and are generally available should you need anything. Upon arrival, you will be provided with information regarding property rules & policies, such as the do’s and don’ts of alpacas, etc. We will also provide you with contact information in case of emergencies or any needs you may have during your stay, otherwise we will respect your privacy.
Other Things to Note
In addition to alpacas, you will see some other wildlife roaming the property such as chickens and peacocks, horses, Highland cattle, a miniature donkey, a zonkey and the most lovable barn cat you will ever meet!
We are a completely smoke-free property – we ask that you please respect this important rule.
We love pets but the alpacas are not too sure about them. Due to their sensitive nature, our ‘no pet policy’ is strictly enforced.
Guests will receive 15% off any one purchase at Epic Alpacas Boutique and Outlet, featuring alpaca products from around the world as well as locally made products.
