House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)
Me, standing over the incredible creek, Jan., 2017 Jerry and I (Kirsty) are both semi-retired professionals and consider ourselves extremely fortunate to live so close to Yosemite. We are local, managing owners who live a convenient 10 miles away from this home (we do not reside 'on-site' at either of our Mariposa vacation rental properties, rest assured your stay with us will remain private). We have over 45 combined years living in the Yosemite area and are nearly always available for assistance without EVER being underfoot or intrusive. **OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE** This home's driveway, unlike MANY in our rural mountain area, is accessed right off a quiet, PAVED country road, something to seriously consider when choosing a vacation rental as you'll likely be making the trip many times... you won't have to navigate miles of steep, rough, un-paved, muddy/dusty or rutted dirt roads to reach this vacation rental and the long, gravel driveway allows for virtually any car, in any weather to easily access the property.
Kirsty purchased this House in 2002
Why Kirsty chose Mariposa
In 2002, we were left to decide which of our two homes we would live in. It was a difficult decision but we decided to stay where we are now and rather than lose our ability to continue enjoying all of the luxuries of SierraScape (by renting it out full-time, selling was NEVER a consideration as Jerry built it), we thought we'd instead try offering The Scape to vacationers who were looking for an exceptional, discreet and distinguished place to stay, near Yosemite National Park but who also desired to be well away from the crowds once they'd been there..........We are happy and humbled to say that SierraScape has been a HUGE hit as a vacation rental and in the fifteen years since its inception has become one of the most popular and sought after places in the Yosemite area. As a result, the home is often filled with return guests as they continue to come back, year after year, often alternating seasons so as to experience it anew each time they arrive.
What makes this House unique
Although a short distance from Yosemite itself, staying at SierraScape provides visitors a combined element of peace, privacy and affordability that accommodations inside the park cannot........ If you’re looking to be conveniently close to Yosemite but would prefer to not spend your vacation placed in an over-crowded development or conventional hotel then we may have JUST what you’re looking for! Some of the totally unique benefits of staying at SierraScape are, well, the creek, for starters, the sight and sounds of it are incredible. There's the custom, awesome architecture, especially the catwalk that looks down over the main level, and then there's the shower ;-)... It's really big and shares its space with the soaking tub so you can combine a shower and bath, together if you like, all the while enjoying the wilderness, right out the knee-height windows. Talk about unique........... I know of nowhere else in this area that has anything comparable to The Scape's decadent, lush, blossoming and sunny (some shade) Garden Deck where you'll find your very own, private, full-size Spa, overlooking that mountain creek. SierraScape is favored by privacy seeking folks for that very reason, no one knows it's there and the absolute privacy is extraordinary. Can't neglect mentioning the beautiful stone fireplace that was built from rocks out of the creek, or the firewood we provide. There are also tasteful, comfortable and contemporary furnishings as well as a Non-Toxic, unscented earth-friendly environment and our guests consistently comment on all the 'special touches' we've thought of, throughout the house and grounds........ Gold panning in the creek is fun, too and there's more but we don't want to give it ALL away, so please, come and find out for yourself...

Amazingly artistic and whimsical stay.
The house is beautiful and full of whimsy! We stayed for 4 days and still kept finding goodies everywhere that showed how much love was poured into this house. They provided so many things to make the stay fun. Peaceful getaway that allows you privacy and yet you can still get to town easily. Highly recommend this house for a wonderful, get-away-from-it-all vacation! Terrific hosts that made every effort to make things perfect for their guests!
Excellent house and hosts
Charming house with lovely stream beneath it. Beautiful deck with hot tub. Incredible privacy and solitude. Lovely all around. 20 minutes from Mariposa, 35 from Oakhurst and 1 hour and a half from Yosemite Valley Visitor Center. Loved it!!!
So glad you enjoyed your anniversary stay, Ray and that you both found our special place so appealing, we appreciated your being such kind and appreciative guests. Not sure if you were encountering traffic on your travels (Memorial Day weekend) or perhaps just taking your time but Mariposa in only 10-12 minutes from the house and Oakhurst is just 25, Yosemite Valley is just over one hour, depending on the time that you go, I'm guessing it took you so much longer due to the holiday weekend. Cheers, and hope to hear from you again some day!
Excellent, glorious, fantastic
Absolute best place we could have stayed for our honeymoon. Loved working with Kirsty and Jerry. They were EXTREMELY helpful and responsive all while giving us the privacy we wanted :) Couldn't have picked a better place. You can't either!
Relaxing stay in a beautiful setting!
My husband and I spent four nights at SierraScape during our springtime trip to Yosemite. We loved hiking in the Yosemite Valley every day, but looked forward to returning to the cabin every evening. The highlights included eating homemade meals on the deck, watching the starry skies while soaking in the hot tub, and hearing the creek through the open window all night. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return to SierraScape to see Yosemite in the fall.
Magical cozy home with absolutely everything you could possibly need, even skewers for shish-ka-bob!!! We are seasoned VRBO’ers and this was by far the cleanest and most serene stay we have had! Loved listening to the rushing water in the creek from the deck and bedroom! I was so pleased to have had the chance to meet Kirsty, who has put such a lovely touch on the home. Every corner, inside & out has such character. It was so pleasant to gaze around the property and see little hidden trinkets and beautiful flowers! Our dog enjoyed the stay too! He loved romping in the creek and it was nice to have the fenced backyard and deck for him. We will definitely be returning!!!! Thank you Kirsty & Jerry for such a welcoming home!! Brad, Gail & Odie
Amazing location, romantic getaway.
Thanks Andy, really glad you enjoyed SierraScape and thanks for being such great guests, really appreciate how you treated the place. Cheers ~
Gold Pan in our creek, Bird Watch from the Deck, Hike the Grounds or climb on the boulders, Playing or relaxing in chairs at the Creek's edge is also a favorite for all, relax and renew while watching the water flow by...
See you at The Scape ~
