About the property

Stunning Studio Cottage Offers An Upscale, High Quality Resort Style Experience.

This lovely cottage offers California Casual Elegance among abundant Nature and is nestled on 15 pristine wooded acres. The setting is totally private and quiet, and presents the ideal escape for people looking for an upscale, high quality resort style property. For your convenience, shopping, dining and entertainment are easily within reach as we are located less than one mile to the Sierra Mountain town of Oakhurst. Yosemite National Park is a picturesque 25 minute drive through magnificent forest to the South Entrance of the park. Plus, there is much to see and do along the way, as it is the journey that guides us.

This cottage is completely separate from the main house. It is beautifully furnished with California Chic comfort and style in mind. There is a fully equipped kitchen offering every convenience, two large private decks (300 sq ft) with incredible unobstructed views of the mountains, the gardens and natural surroundings, and your own private hot tub. The bathroom features a 5 ft glass enclosed tiled shower. The huge private patio has a bar, hot tub (year round) and chaise lounges with an umbrella for your relaxation and enjoyment (seasonal). The spacious bedroom area with its own private deck has a top quality cal king mattress with your well-being and relaxation in mind. A cedar lined armoire, a computer desk and chair, and two luggage racks provide convenience. High thread count linens, plush towels and eco-friendly bath amenities give you with that luxurious feeling. Flat screen TVs in both the living room (HDTV) and bedroom areas offer extensive satellite channels, Blu-ray, dvd player. There is excellent cell phone reception and highspeed wireless internet is available.

The Perfect Location…

This cottage offers privacy and seclusion, with close easy access to Yosemite National Park and to major conveniences in Oakhurst. Ample guest parking with easy access is big enough to accommodate your sports equipment as well. If you want to immerse yourself in Nature’s abundance and beauty, with all the amenities, we’ve got you covered. Additionally, an onsite manual provides you with maps (and much more) to the more hidden local hot spots that are off the beaten path! And finally, as far as cost goes… we simply offer you more for less.

About Marianna Burrett

My family and I moved to Oakhurst in 2000 because the area is so incredibly beautiful. We love nature and being outdoors gardening, hiking, kayaking, skiing and the like. We enjoy sharing what we know of these amazing Sierra Nevada mountains with others! With a solid background in property management and having traveled extensively myself (pleasure and business) our aim is to provide our guests with a top quality experience and a relaxing and pleasant stay!

Marianna Burrett purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Marianna Burrett chose Yosemite Area

One of the things I really enjoy about this property is that while being completely private and quiet we are very close to town. It is like having the best of both worlds. Easy and quick access to all the amenities that Oakhurst has to offer is just 1 mile away, yet when on the 15 acre property you would think you were much farther away. I guess that is because it is so peaceful and serene here with abundant wildlife, pristine wooded forest, and expansive mountain views.

What makes this cottage unique

This upscale cottage aims to provide a luxury resort style experience to guests, within a comfortable and private atmosphere where guests can truly relax and unwind. All new furniture, appliances, towels, linens and other accents were selected with our guest's well being in mind. Emphasis is placed on sustainability and is reflected in LED lighting, energy star appliances, energy efficient heating and cooling, hot water on demand water heater, low flow toilets, and the like. The cottage is surrounded by organic gardens and pristine oak woodland forest. All this and close proximity to Yosemite make for a wonderful and unique experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My favorite listing of the year so far, such a great place to stay if you're in the Oakhurst/Yosemite area. The place is brand-new and fully equipped, super peaceful and a veritable oasis if you want to get away. Very quiet with all the amenities you need to relax. Marianna greeted me with warmth and enthusiasm. She is already becoming one of Airbnb's most amazing hosts. She had yogurt coffee and local eggs waiting for me in the fridge (eggs from the chickens not 20 feet away outside, incredible). I wish I could stay longer, but I'll def. be back.

Nice place, awesome host

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a perfect base for exploring Yosemite. It is very clean, modern and tastefully decorated. Kitchen was well stocked with spices, oil, cream cheese and fixings, even fresh eggs in the fridge. There is plenty of outdoor space, with two decks and a large patio, it feels very private. Marianna was wonderful, very helpful introducing us to local area and answering our questions. She even thoughtfully brought us a map when there was a parade in town, showing how to bypass it. The only suggestion would be softer towels and better hairdryer, otherwise the cottage is close to perfection. Oakhurst is more than an hour away from Yosemite Valley but we were glad that we chose to stay there. It is the closest civilized place with decent restaurants, grocery stores and Starbucks, works well after hiking in wilderness. Also, there were multiple fires burning in the park while we were there, it gave us peace of mind to stay in the more populated area with multiple escape routes and ways to get to Yosemite.

Clean, comfortable cottage in a cozy town!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 4 days to visit Yosemite. There were wildfires going on so Marianna helped guide us where to go and still have some great hikes! The cottage was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we never got to use the hot tub because we got home too late every night, but it looked amazing. The cottage was a little closer to the main house than we imagined, but we didn't feel bothered by the hosts. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would recommend to anyone!

The PERFECT spot near Yosemite!

  • 5 of 5

We had the absolute best stay at the White Sage Cottage. From the moment we arrived, Marianna made us feel right at home. She gave us a thorough tour of the space and tips for Yosemite. She also provided fresh eggs for us and had an assortment of spices, creamers for coffee, ziplocs, foil, and other items we would need for our trip. It saved us some money at the store, which we really appreciated. The Cottage is very private and even has its own grill and hot tub, which were nice to use after a long day at Yosemite. The entire place was spotless and you can tell how much love and thought they have put into this rental. We fell in love with Yosemite this trip and cannot wait to return and stay at the White Sage Cottage again!

Amazing!! Best place to stay near Yosemite.

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that we stayed here; we could not have asked for a better place to enjoy our trip to Yosemite! It truly felt like home. There were so many thoughtful amenities like fresh eggs, bath robes, laundry, and even bugspray! Marianna also provided an amazing collection of information on Yosemite. Without her helpful maps and itineraries, our trip to Yosemite would have not been as great. I can't think of anything that would make this a better place to stay! I would recommend it hands down!!Thank you so much!
