Frequently Asked Questions
1) Who is the "mother" in the Mother Lode Lodge?
In this instance, our "mother" is not a person but a thing. "Mother lode" is a term associated with mining gold. It has been used to describe large, productive veins of gold. In California it is also used to describe a geographical area so-named because of the gold found and mined during the goldrush that began in 1849.  Mariposa shares in that history and is the southernmost town of the geographical area that is known as the Mother Lode region.
2) How far are you from Yosemite National Park?
We are located 32 miles from the entrance of the national park. Due to the fact that you will be traveling in the mountains most find that it will typically take about 45 minutes to drive there.
3) Where is Mariposa in relation to Yosemite?
Mariposa is the largest town closest to the park at the Highway 140 entrance.
