Whether you are looking for a peaceful mountain getaway or trying to find lodging for your group near Yosemite National Park, Sunset Roost is the perfect choice! The Sunset Roost offers quiet solitude in a beautiful foothill setting.
The Sunset Roost is a three bedroom, two-bath manufactured home that has been fully renovated inside and out. It is tastefully decorated throughout. Sunset Roost is designed for adults as a non-smoking property. Artwork from local artists adorns every room and spills into the Outdoor Living Room and gardens. And the sunset view is what you will always remember!
An open floor plan invites interaction throughout the living area. The large peninsula counter separates the kitchen from the dining area and provides plenty of prep space for creating meals or picnic lunches to take into Yosemite. It’s also a great place for breakfast before you head out for the day. This opens into the living room, which truly is a room with a view! A leather sofa and love seat face one another and look out over the deck towards the Merced River Canyon. The futon day-bed is the perfect place to lounge and enjoy the view (it is also a double bed).
Each of the three bedrooms has a character of its own. The master bedroom is outfitted with a king sized pillowtop bed with a down comforter. Artwork in the master bedroom and bath is relationship inspired; perfect for romantic evenings. There is a large bathtub and separate shower in the master bath, as well as double sinks.
The second and third bedrooms are located on the opposite end of the house adjacent to the second bathroom. Both have queen size beds with down comforters. The Wildflower Room has a tall sleigh bed and colorful photography from the surrounding foothills and high country. The Half Dome Room has a low platform bed to allow full view from its second (west facing) window. Local art depicting Yosemite’s most recognizable icon adorns the walls.
Enter the Outdoor Living Room through either of the glass doors onto the deck. Defined mostly by the 800 square foot redwood deck and hot tub, you will find yourself spending considerable quality time out here. Outdoor meals are wonderful with the evening breeze and unobstructed sunset views. The main table seats six and a small bistro table seats two more. Cook outside on the propane BBQ while you relax on a pair of chaise lounges.
It is a bit hard to say where the Outdoor Living Room ends and the yard begins. A lush green lawn invites you to spend your afternoon in the shade of the pines relaxing in the hammock. The gardens are filled with flowers, herbs, and native plants which keep the birds, bees and butterflies happy. There are walking trails on-site that wander down the “tunnel trail” through manzanita, oak, and pine forests before looping back around through oak savanna and up to the top—the Roost. Wildlife is abundant at The Roost. You may see deer, birds, fox, turkey, peacocks, squirrels, raccoons, and bats.
The Sunset Roost offers all the comforts of home. Whether your idea of vacationing involves cooking gourmet meals or take-n-bake pizza, the full amenity kitchen has everything you will need. The home theater system includes a high quality Onkyo 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound receiver, DVD player, CD player, and satellite TV. Wireless DSL is provided for those who can’t go without their laptop. Of course there are plenty of pillows and blankets to keep you comfortable, and the large washer and dryer will keep your clothes clean if you’re on an extended holiday.
The Sunset Roost is conveniently located in the community of Midpines, California along the Highway 140 corridor. It is a 25-mile drive to the Yosemite National Park boundary along the “all weather highway” which follows the Wild and Scenic Merced River (37 miles to Yosemite Village). Heading the other direction, you will find the gold rush town of Mariposa 10 miles to the West. Merced is 45 miles, and the Fresno airport is a 90-minute drive. The Merced River Recreation Area (Briceburg) is less than 7 miles away.
There is plenty to do in the area. Most visitors will go into Yosemite, but some, who seek solitude, will be quite satisfied to avoid the crowds. The historic town of Mariposa offers shops, restaurants, a film cinema, groceries, gas and supplies. Outdoor recreation abounds! Whitewater Rafting and kayaking are excellent in the spring. Birding, hiking, fishing, swimming, sunbathing, mountain biking, and gold panning are popular along the Merced River and in The Park. Yosemite is a Mecca for rock climbers from around the world! There is something for everyone to do while staying at the Sunset Roost, even if you never leave the property—remember that hammock and the Outdoor Living Room?

In a word 'PERFECT'. This home is a gem. Every detail has been carefully thought about. Decor beautiful. Views breathtaking. Wildlife amazing. We loved it and would recommend it unreservedly.
We stayed at the Roost for a week in June and can't say enough good things about it! The pictures didn't do the scenery justice - it is even more majestic in person. We saw deer, turkey, and peacocks during our stay - in addition to the beautiful sunset every evening. The hot tub was great, the outdoor speakers for the stereo were great, everything worked well and everything was in its place. We would recommend the Roost unreservedly - it's wonderful when everything you had hoped for was actually there (and even better!) when you arrive. Thank you for letting us stay!
We've stayed at several VRBO properties and would rate this our most favorite, because of its location, comfort, decor, cleanliness, and friendliness/thoughtfulness of the owner. First of all, Sunset Roost is aptly named because of the spectacular sunsets from the deck. We even found ourselves timing our daily departures from Yosemite to get back to enjoy those sunsets! The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped. The furniture is very comfortable. The decor is very tasteful. The hot-tub is an added bonus. Rosemary grows all around the property. Wild life abounds, including hummingbirds. It's a total close-to-nature sensorial delight. There is zero light pollution, so the stars sparkle brightly, the planets wander, and the Milky Way splashes across the night sky. Mariposa is a fun western town only about 15-20 minutes away with various restaurants, pubs, pizza, gas, groceries, etc., so the necessities of civilization are within comfortable driving distance. We could not recommend this property more highly!
We visited Yosemite in early August and stayed at Sunset Roost. In a word, this rental was perfect. The house and property are very well maintained and appointed. Our family of four was very comfortable there. The deck was great for meals and was quite comfortable in the mornings and evenings before the August heat took over during the day. Some other guests have commented that the drive to Yosemite is too far - we found that not to be the case. It is a lot of driving but when you consider the sheer size of Yosemite, a lot of driving is necessary to see more than just the valley. Sunset Roost is about equal distance to the west and the south entrance to the park. It took us about 50 minutes to get to the park entrance and the drive is very scenic and pleasant. We spent most of our time in the high country to beat the August heat - this proved to be a great strategy. The higher elevations in the park were more than comfortable for day long hikes. It was even chilly on the day we went up to Tenaya Lake. Coming back to the Roost in the early evening was perfect after a day in the park. The owners of the Roost are also very helpful. They gave us some great and detailed advice on planning our days in Yosemite. I would recommend this place without hesitation.
Dit huis was een van onze hoogtepunten tijdens onze rondreis door Amerika. Het huis is zeer schoon en ontzettend goed ingericht. De mooie natuur maakt het plaatje compleet. Het huis is in het echt veel groter dan op de foto's daar lijkt alles dicht op elkaar te staan. Onze jongens van 16 en 20 jaar wilden er niet meer weg vanwege de hot tub. Het is nog wel 45 min rijden naar yosemite Valley of via de andere kant naar mariposa grove met de sequoia bomen. Ik zou iedereen dit huis echt aanbevelen
We were lucky enough to stay in Tracy and David's beautiful house for four nights and had a wonderful stay. The house is spacious, clean and superbly well equipped but it's the outside space that is even more special. The deck area is brilliant and we ate in every night just watching the sunset and star gazing when it got dark. Our youngest daughter would have slept in the hammock if she could. We saw lots of birds, squirrels and a couple of deer (including one literally outside the window). Tracy and David were extremely helpful from the initial booking, keeping us informed about road closures because of the fire, through to check out and speedy refund of deposit. We were genuinely sad to leave this amazing place. Thank you
