From Manuel in Jan:
“Martin has a fantastic place. Plenty of space for a family of 5 or couple. It is endlessly quiet. A perfect location to stargaze, relax, read and drift away. Martin maintains the cottage 5 star-level clean. Amenities are present and what you should expect in a vacation-away cottage. Typical household kitchen utensils, coffee pot, tea-kettle, toaster, oven, small refrigerator. Heater works phenomenally. Fireplace is currently not in working condition, but once it does, Martin place has little rivalry.
It is a 45 min quick drive to Yosemite. Scenery is great and with the windy turns, it will not seem like a far drive. Plenty of photographic sceneries to stop for a quick snap. On the way to Martins place, there is a shopping center area, banks, grocery stores, etc. Stop here for anything needed. There is a small local store not far from Martin for last minute stuff.
Also, cool winery is on the same street as Martin – just below! Check it out. Last hint awesome tidbit, inquire with Martin regarding his other businesses, you will be delightfully surprised! Great personalized gifts!”
[PS: Fireplace now fixed]
From Jo in Dec:
“This place is extremely comfortable, warm and cozy. It is in an ideal location for visiting Yosemite National Park and the town of Mariposa yet it is so secluded and quiet. We saw amazing stars and constellations at night and beautiful views and scenery during the day. Martin was very welcoming and gave us some great advice about the area and the park. He was also very accommodating and loaned us some snow chains for the car. At the bottom of the drive is a great winery for all your needs! We only stayed 3 nights but would loved to have stayed for longer. If you want a great holiday, this is the place for you.”
From Julia in Dec:
“Frontier Hill is the best!! We will definitely come back and stay here! Our kids loved it and we fell in love with the views. You must go outside at night and take a look at the stars they are mesmerizing. The cottage is clean and it feels very cozy. It even had a crib for our baby. Thank you once again Martin!”
From Nancy in Nov:
“Great Place: We enjoyed our stay at Frontier Hill. The house has been recently refurbished and is clean and comfortable. Martin and Louise are friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again and might go back this spring.
Martin provides good coffee and a coffee maker…much appreciated by us! Seeing the deer was a thrill for our grandkids and us and it’s fun to be out in the country when you are city people. Mariposa has a good supermarket and great history museum that we went to on our way home.”
From Bernard in Oct:
Really enjoyed our 4 night stay in Frontier Hill. It felt like a home instead of a hotel. Queen bed was the most comfortable bed outside of our own.
From Christine in early Sept:
“We enjoyed every minute in Martin’s house. It was the perfect location to relax after a day of hiking in Yosemite. The rooms are cosey, and so are the beds. We were thrilled to see a group of deer walking close to the house. The drive to Yosemite is beautiful and not too long. Martin himself is very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Frontier Hill, it is a piece of paradise. Thank you, Martin!”
From Bruce in Sept 2017:
“Really enjoyed staying on Frontier Hill. Martin is an excellent host and also a very knowledgeable guide for Yosemite activities. Really appreciated having access to washer and dryer as well. Very private and comfortable property.”
