Our large, multi-cabin property "Mariposas Village" is full of ways to relax. You’ll love our place because of the majestic forested mountain environment, the light through the rooms, the comfy beds and furnishings, exploring the 21.3 acres of trails and walking along the creek to our own waterfalls. Our retreat center is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families and events, we can accommodate groups of up to 40. A popular children's summer camp location since 1946.
Escape to your cozy private suite with a king-sized bed, your on suite bath with double vanity and shower nestled in the forest with a view of the canyon. Come and relax while listening to the breeze in the evergreens outside your romantic room in the historical, rustic lodge/chapel building. Enjoy the bright stars from your front deck, the rippling creek and waterfalls alongside a paved walking or bike trail, where the immigrant pioneers traveling to California during the Gold Rush of 1849 passed right through the property. Groups of up to 40 can be accommodated in rooms, also reunions, conferences and other events can be held. Groups have been hosted here for the last 70 years when it was a beloved summer camp facility. Five guest buildings have been updated for all the comforts of home, while leaving your cares behind. Relax in hammocks by the creek, or walk our labyrinth to center yourself. Put together a puzzle or play pool or table games in the dining/lounge area of the main lodge. Pick up a guitar or other instrument and entertain yourself and the other guests from our music corner or on our piano.
You are welcome to explore the trails, lounge or roast marshmallows by the outdoor fireplace or play a game of pool in the main Mariposas Lodge, enjoy wildlife, ladybug colonies and nature everywhere. Children need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
