The Space

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.

We are located just 14 minutes outside of Mariposa, a town reminiscent of the good old days where you will find a variety of gift shops, including our own Epic Alpaca’s 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 claimed that their visit to Epic Alpacas was the highlight of their trip to the area.

Guest Access

For your protection, we offer a 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 male 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 away accessible by a five-minute walk. Each area provides a table with umbrella, seating for six and vantage points with spectacular views.

Interaction with Guests

You may see the owners from time to time who live on the 40-acre property but most interaction will be with your hosts who reside next door to the Ranch house. Upon arrival, you will be instructed on certain restrictions and policies, such as do’s and don’ts of alpacas. We will also provide you with contact names and numbers 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 cats you will ever meet!

We are a completely smoke-free property. This is not only a personal preference but required by law for liability reasons, 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 non-negotiable.

Guests will receive 15% off any one purchase at Epic Alpaca’s Boutique and Outlet, featuring alpaca products from around the world as well as locally made products.
