Oakhurst Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 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.

We could not have been happier with our stay at The White Sage Cottage in Oakhurst! Marianna was a wonderful host, telling us everything we needed to know as we arrived. The cottage was the cleanest I have ever rented through VRBO. It was beautiful, quiet and secluded. Everything we needed and more for our trip to Yosemite. She even had a cooler for our day trip into the park. Would highly recommend this VRBO!

Excellent Stay At White Sage Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at White Sage Cottage. The cottage makes a perfect, quiet space for any couple seeking a private retreat or a base camp from which to explore Yosemite and the surrounding area. The owners have created a clean, modern space that is a step above many of the other rentals in the area. Although the location of White Sage Cottage ensures privacy and tranquility, the conveniences of Oakhurst-groceries, restaurants, STARBUCKS, gas stations-are just a five-minute drive away. The cottage is about 30 minutes from the south entrance of Yosemite and approximately 60-75 minutes from Yosemite valley (depending upon traffic conditions). Drive time is similar to Glacier Point, but it takes a longer time to drive the Tioga Road to Tuolumne Meadows (which is absolutely worth it if you are in Yosemite during a time when the High Sierras are accessible). Marianna was an excellent resource. She provided a warm welcome to the cottage, explained all of the amenities, and left us fresh eggs from the resident chickens (which we made fine use of during breakfast). If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet, modern space near Yosemite, I highly recommend White Sage Cottage.

We had such a great experience at the White Sage Cotttage! We were greeted by Marianna with fresh eggs and many suggestions for Yosemite and local restaurants. The cottage was beautiful, with very comfortable beds and amenities. We loved the hot tub after longs days at the many nearby parks. We were sad to leave and would definitely recommend the cottage! We can't wait to visit again!

This is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a great place to stay while visiting Yosemite, this is the place. Marianna is a great host, she goes over everything and is there if you need her. It is very private with your own deck with multiple places to enjoy the outdoors and a Jacuzzi. The inside is immaculate with a comfortable bed and full kitchen. You are only minutes from stores and restaurants. I will recommend this place to friends and would stay again. Thanks Marianna!!!

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Traveling from Florida to Yosemite, I was very skeptical about not staying at a hotel. By the time I booked, every hotel in the area even the campgrounds were booked so it seemed to me that I had not option. However, this was the most PERFECT cottage to stay in. It is 25 minutes from the South Entrance of the park (Keep in mind that once you enter the park, you have to still drive about 45 minutes to get to a point of interest - but you would have to do that regardless of where you stay).

The city around is really cute. There is a Vons and a Rileys (supermarkets) very close. We got breakfast items, wine, and steaks to grill at night. Coming to the hot tub after a long day of hike was just what we needed. If I ever go back to Yosemite, I would stay in this same location. And moving forward I would consider using the VRBO website for my stays elsewhere.

To summarize - the highlights of my trip where:

1) the view of Yosemite from Glacier Point

2) Seeing a bear in the wild

3) The White Sage Cottage!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy.

Quiet, Relaxing & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a GREAT place to stay for my wife and I. The cottage was secluded and provided all the amenities we needed. The south entrance to Yosemite was only a 30 minute drive away. After spending full days of hiking in the park, it was wonderful to come back to the cottage to relax in the hot tub (our favorite part) and spend time on the cottage's patio, which was quiet and provided spectacular views.

Marianna was super friendly and provided great recommendations in both Yosemite National Park and places to go/eat in & around Oakhurst (South Gate Brewing Company is a must!)

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Marianna and White Sage Cottage!
