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.

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.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to unwind before driving to Fresno to fly back to Huntsville, AL. We spend four nights at the cottage following several days traveling from Phoenix to Oakhurst. The location was very peaceful and relaxing. From the moment we arrived we felt very comfortable. Deer grazing, turkeys wandering about and I cannot forget "the girls" for providing fresh eggs for our breakfast one morning. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The cottage is a short drive to Yosemite and other interesting sites. Marianna was there to meet us when we arrived providing valuable information about the area. This is undoubtedly the cleanest VRBO that we have ever rented.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your cottage.

Marianna and Mike are mindful of what any visitor could want or need. The cottage and landscaping are immaculately maintained. Like other reviews, we saw deer and turkeys every day. Everything about our stay was peaceful and relaxing (especially the hot tub). Would highly recommend!

We had an amazing time at White Sage Cottage.Everything about this place was charming and luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

We had the time of our lives at White Sage Cottage! The setting of the cottage is absolutely gorgeous. It is quiet and serene. During our stay, we were able to take pictures of a flock of wild turkeys that was roaming the property. On our last morning there, we woke up to see two adorable deer nibbling leaves right outside the back door. We watched the sun set from our own private hot tub. The cottage itself has every amenity imaginable. The beds, linens, towels, and kitchen accessories are of the highest quality. Marianna was so kind and helpful during our stay. She answered all of my questions, which helped us to prepare for our day in Yosemite. In addition to all of this, Marianna even gave us fresh eggs from the adorable chickens in her chicken coop. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at White Sage Cottage. We will definitely be back!

Nice view anyway

  • 3 of 5

Once the property owner berated my wife for over a half hour because of her lack of American Etiquette. All was good until we lost water. So we took water from the hot tub to flush the toilet. Other than that it was a nice place

Owner's Response: Bert, Some helpful hints for you when traveling using VRBO: BE NICE: Please don’t accuse the property owner of “deception” (your words) just because you initially could not fully comprehend the VRBO billing/invoicing procedures. Ask questions first. BE HONEST: Please abide by the contract you signed and not bring in any extra guests during your stay. BE REAL: Life is unpredictable. A broken water main in our neighborhood that required repairs that took a few hours is not within our control as a property owner. When we communicated this issue to you, you seemed to have no issues and understood the situation. We were surprised to learn in your review this was not the case. Final note. My communications were specifically with you Bert, not your wife. No one was berated. We just ask that our guests/travelers abide by the contract, and when they do not, it needs to be brought to their attention. Other reviews on this site reflect the reality of what we provide.
