Property Details

Updated: Oct 29, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 4 Sleeps

So glad we happened to find this place while surfing the web. We had a wonderful stay, everything was perfect."

Secretly set near Yosemite, this spectacular, 1000 sq ft, custom built Tri-Level creekside home is hidden away on eight secluded acres and is ideally located between two different entrances to Yosemite National Park, both well under an hour away. SierraScape's central location is ideal for enjoying all of Yosemite however many of our guests say that once they’ve been there, they want to simply stay put, basking in the beauty and seclusion here without ever having to leave the property. Yosemite is so close, and yet so far…

"My Husband and I had a wonderful time exploring Yosemite and then relaxing together here at the cabin. We loved the privacy, quiet, and all of nature's sounds at night. A wonderful place for honeymooners. Thank You!"

Unique and intriguing architecture add much to the ambience of this amazing place that comfortably accommodates from Two, to Four guests. SierraScape is beautifully furnished with an eclectic mix of comfort and style, has a FULLY-equipped kitchen with EVERY convenience, large, beautifully done bedrooms as well as the most incredible outdoor patio, a real treat!

"When we arrived, we thought we'd died and gone to Heaven, when we departed, we knew we'd found Heaven on Earth...WHAT a PLACE!" 2/27/11

There is an abundance of board games, an interesting collection of books and novels as well as direct access out the French doors, leading directly out to the back deck area, creek and SPA.

This room sits adjacent to the sunny dining area and just beyond that, the arched entrance leads you into the well-stocked, fully-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, gas stove, refrigerator, double stainless sink with plumbed, purified RO drinking water (professionally maintained), Granite countertops, dishwasher, microwave, multiple windows and a BEAUTIFUL view...

“Every single thing we thought of to use in that kitchen you HAD!”

THE BEDROOMS and BATHS

The large, Main Bedroom is located on the second level and has open-beam, cathedral ceilings &

skylight, a Queen-size bed, loveseat, a vanity/sink and a side door that opens onto its own private deck, leading down to the hot tub.

The Room With a View is located on the third level, at one the of the catwalk and also has high, open-beam ceilings, a King-size bed, a beautiful view and French doors that lead out onto a private balcony, overlooking the creek.

"The sound of the water flowing in that creek, drifting through the French Door screen while we were sleeping was so tranquil and renewing, we could have stayed here forever"

The upstairs, half-bath is also located along the catwalk, just steps away from The Room With a View. Both bedrooms are beautifully outfitted with both modern & antique furniture as well as comfortable, quality beds. Each room has a ceiling fan, a sitting/reading area and writing desk, adding to the comfort and solitude of each individual space.

Located on the first floor is the unique, full bathroom with an open, 6' tile shower that has dual shower heads, multiple windows and private, distant views. It also has a large soaking tub with great views of the private surroundings! Conveniently, this main bathroom is accessible from common living space as is the half-bath upstairs so no traipsing through someone else's bedroom on your way to the loo ;-)..

And OUTSIDE…

You’ll find the incredible, multi-level Sunny Garden Deck that is absolutely, positively fantastic. This extensive a

The pictures do not do this wonderful home justice. It is an absolutely delightul and peaceful setting in which to relax and enjoy. The expansive deck has several levels to experience and feel in touch with nature, and to relax in the outdoor hot tub under the stars. The home is lovely with comfortable bedding and an awesome shower. The owners have thought of everythng to anticipate questions and have information readily available. We truly enjoyed our stay here and only wish we had more time to stay longer!!

Quiet and Comfortable Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a wonderful 4 days at Sierrascape. The weather was perfect -- hot and sunny during the day and cool at night. We made use of the hot tub, the BBQ and the many leveled deck. It was great to sit and watch the many birds surrounding the cottage from larger raptors, to a wild turkey and finches. We were also entertained by lizards on the rocks.
We thoroughly appreciated the private setting with its lovely and unique gardens. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed, the shower was great as you felt you were almost outside, and the bed in the master suite was extremely comfortable.
Our only issue was with the heater which was tempermental and often took several tries to get the fan to work.
Highly recommend as a fine base to explore Gold Rush towns and Yosemite.

Dream Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
Such a cute little place! We spent half our honeymoon here and couldnt have asked for a more secluded and beautiful place. The house is adorable! Just big enough and fully furnished, the two bathrooms and full laundry make it feel just like home. The kitchen was fully furnished and the patio a dream come true to outdoor lovers. Numerous birdfeeders bring birdlife right outside the windows all throughout the day! We spent candlelit nights out on the patio in the hot tub and saw a racoon and a bobcat! The drive to Yosemite is a little far, but not because of the actual mileage but the winding mountain roads. The town of Mariposa has everything you need for your stay as well as some great gift shops and places to eat. I couldnt recommend this place enough for a family trip or a romantic getaway for two! And the owner is awesome she came to jump our rental car when the battery died no questions asked and with lightening speed! Thanks again for such a wonderful and beautiful experience.

Don't hesitate

We visit the USA perhaps twice each year and always rent a house for the last week of our tour - at or near somewhere beautiful. We've rented houses from Down East Maine to Washington State to Tennessee. And in California, of course. All these places have been glorious - and I'm fussy - BUT Sierra Scape, near Mariposa and the staggering Yosemite, beats them all by a country mile. This was a wonderful spot to build a house and the house is marvellous. It isn't huge but it's big enough. It's full of everything you might want and more besides. It's prettily and thoughtfully equipped and decorated. The unspoiled grounds are full of interest too, not least a creek at the edge of the property. I've found little flakes of gold there (it's called Italian Creek and must have been panned-out a century ago but there were enough little flakes to 'wow' me) and there are trees and plants and birds and critters in abundance. We always hope we'll go back to the places we've stayed in but time's short and the world's a big place. Sierra Scape has been the exception though. We have been back and we intend to go back again The house seems to be isolated and is very private (truly suits us) but it's close to Mariposa where you can spend an afternoon wandering about and soaking up the atmosphere (and the beer/wine). Yosemite is close and very thrilling even to an accidental tourist like me. My husband does serious walks/climbs there. He'll be away for the day and loves it and all it has to offer. It's his favourite place in the whole world - and we've lived and worked all over the world. (Meanwhile, I chill on the wonderful deck at Sierra Scape and eventually haul myself out of the spa and get around to making our dinner. The kitchen is wonderfully well stocked with everything you might need.) Our hosts, Kristy and Jerry, could not be more helpful and obliging. The local info they leave for you is comprehensive. Don’t hesitate. Go see for yourselves.

What a wonderful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful New Years in this lovely home. Kirsty and Jerry have thought of everything and we were never without the information we needed to have a great time in Yosemite. The outside decks are spacious and having wine and dipping in the hot tub under the stars could not be a more romantic way to spend a vacation! We will certainly go back to Sierrascape next time we visit Yosemite.

Beautiful Cabin Escape!

  • 5 of 5
The Sierrascape home is breathtaking and beautiful ~ you really feel like you're away from the hustle nestled in the mountains where the air is fresh, and the only sounds around are from the wildlife and howling coyotes. The stars are stunning...the home is cozy with a great fireplace stocked with wood. I enjoyed the master bathroom...taking a luxurious bath while looking out at nature...a late night hot tub...the master bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is great for cooking up a holiday meal. You're also close enough to jump into the town of Mariposa for dinner and Yosemite is a 45 min adventure from there. My only regret was only staying 3 days...we wanted to stay longer.

The property is clean, well maintained, and looked even better than the pictures once we arrived. We were traveling with our little yorkie who really liked walking around outside and sitting by the fireplace.

Kirsty and Jerry were kind, accommodating, and helped us with our questions. I recommend Sierrascape for couples or small families who want a change of pace.
