About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
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?
We, the owners of the Sunset Roost, have lived here since 2000 and have explored much of the region. We can help you plan your visit and will even clue you in to our secret spots and favorite hikes (if you promise to respect the land and leave no trace).
So come on up to the Sunset Roost for your next vacation and let us help you make the most of your visit!
