Take a break from hectic city life with a retreat to this picturesque 3-bedroom home in the serene California countryside. Dubbed the “Gateway to Yosemite”, the city of Merced is your ideal home away from home, being centrally located between the larger cities of Modesto to the north and Fresno to the south, while providing you with ample opportunities to take advantage of the gorgeous mountainous parks and national forests to the west. A visit to Mariposa is just 45 minutes away, a historic site of the California Gold Rush and a must-see with its preserved architecture and quaint character. Take a day trip to other attractions like Yosemite National Park, Bass Lake, and Mariposa Grove, all within easy driving distance. With so much to offer, University Pastoral will truly provide your most memorable vacation yet!

Step inside the home to be welcomed by modern, updated spaces with classic design and elegant décor. A spacious living room offers comfortable sofa seating and surrounds a large smart TV mounted over the electric fireplace, transforming cooler evenings by creating a cozy space for a movie in front of the fire. The clean, brightly lit kitchen is just steps away, fully equipped with all standard appliances, toaster, and drip coffee maker with all the trimmings. Stay in for the evening and prepare a home cooked meal, enjoyed at the café style kitchen table with seating for 4. For a casual breakfast or quick bites, additional barstool seating for 2 can be found at the kitchen counter. Back through the living room, you will find entrance to the private, fenced back yard, perfect for relaxing in the sun and enjoying the fresh air.

This home comfortably sleeps 6 guests between 3 private bedrooms.

Bedroom #1 includes a king size bed, walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with a dual vanity and shower/tub combo.

Bedroom #2 includes a queen size bed and a large closet.

Bedroom #3 includes 2 twin size beds and a large closet.

Nestled in the rolling hills of central California, Merced is a charming rural community known for its stunning natural beauty and welcoming small-town vibe. The area's untouched landscapes offer plenty of opportunity for hiking, horseback riding, and wildlife viewing. You’ll be just 45 minutes outside of Mariposa, where visitors can stroll the downtown area with stops for local wine tasting or historical immersion at the Mariposa Gold Rush History Center and the Mariposa County Courthouse, California’s oldest seat of justice that is still in use today. Whether you're looking for a relaxing escape to the countryside or an exciting outdoor adventure, University Pastoral is the perfect destination for exploration and rejuvenation.
