Half Dome

By far the coziest and most contemporary of our two homes, SierraScape is an upscale yet affordable paradise, ideally suited to somewhat smaller groups. A distinctive find, the home and its surroundings are consistently called “AMAZING”, “INCREDIBLE”, “UNBELIEVABLE” and even "EXQUISITE” by our guests upon check-in....by the time they check-out, they're often planning their return.

Secretly set near Yosemite, this 1000 sq. ft custom-built home is hidden away in the center of eight secluded acres and has extensive decking and a spa that overlook the boulder filled, seasonal creek and surrounding hills. The home comfortably accommodates up to four guests.

Deck and creek

SierraScape is a virtual cocoon of nature, it is surrounded by lush, year-round greenery and the incredible ITALIAN CREEK runs right by, just 20' below the Redwood deck. This very popular home is truly one-of-a-kind, you simply must see it to believe it. From the high-ceilinged catwalk that spans the length between the two third floor bedrooms and looks down onto the first floor dining area to the six-foot tiled shower that has knee-height windows with totally private views, SierraScape consistently provides an experience that far exceeds the expectations of those who have been fortunate enough to have chosen it.

The home is beautifully furnished with an eclectic mix of comfort and style, has a FULLY-equipped kitchen with EVERY convenience, two large, beautifully done bedrooms as well as the most incredible outdoor patio you have possibly ever seen. A detailed description can be found below to both assist you in imagining the overall layout, and in deciding if in fact this is the home you were oh-so-hoping to find.

THE Living, Kitchen and Dining Areas...

Fireplace and entry

The living room has high, open-beam ceilings and includes a reclining sofa, several chairs, the giant, stone fireplace, a stereo system w/iPod port, satellite TV with extensive channels, including HBO and a DVD/VCR (lots of tapes and videos provided). There is an abundance of board games, an interesting collection of books and novels as well as access out the French doors, leading directly out onto the back deck area and full-size SPA.

Livingroom

This room sits adjacent to the sunny dining area that seats up to four, and just beyond that, the arched entrance leads you into the well-stocked, fully-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, gas stove, refrigerator w/ice maker, double stainless sink with plumbed, purified RO drinking water, Granite countertops, dishwasher, microwave, multiple windows and a BEAUTIFUL view...

Also located in the dining area is the small media center where you’ll fine the phone and internet equipment, including wi-fi access and an answering machine.

A Full-size washer and dryer can be found in the closet, off the hallway and for your convenience, we also provide earth-friendly laundry soap and even a drying rack for those of you who would like one. The washer and dryer are available to all our guests, regardless of the duration of their stay.

THE BEDROOMS and BATHS...

The large, Main Bedroom is located on the second level and has open-beam, cathedral ceilings & skylight, a Queen-size bed, loveseat, a vanity/sink and a side door that opens onto its own private deck, leading down to the hot tub.

Master bedroom

The Room With a View is located on the third level, at one the of the catwalk and also has high, open-beam ceilings, a King-size bed, a beautiful view and French doors that lead out onto a private balcony, overlooking the creek.

"The sound of the water flowing in that creek, drifting through the French Door screen while we were sleeping was so tranquil and renewing, we could have stayed here forever."

The upstairs, half-bath is also located along the catwalk, just steps away from The Room With a View. Both bedrooms are beautifully outfitted with both modern & antique furniture as well as comfortable, quality beds. Each room has a ceiling fan, a sitting/reading area and writing desk, adding to the comfort and solitude of each individual space.

AND OUTSIDE...

Livingroom

You’ll find the incredible, multi-level Sunny Garden Deck that is absolutely, positively fantastic. This extensive area overlooks the boulder filled creek and surrounding hills and leads past the Hot Tub, up to the garden gate that leads you down a short path, right to the water's edge.

The full-size SPA is transcendent. It is sunken so is easy to get in and out of, exceptionally well-kept, available ALL year long and is incredibly inviting and while just 10 or so steps from the living room door, it is virtually in another world, decadently perched over the creek and under the wide-open sky that is at one moment the bluest of blues and the next, an incredible orange with the sun setting slowly over the trees. Wait a while longer and experience the immense night sky where the constellations abound and the stars go shooting by.

Master bedroom

Imagine relaxing on down here after an arduous hike in Yosemite into the clear, hot, bubbling water, it just doesn't get any better than that. Yosemite is So close, and yet SO far...

"Regardless of how stressed one may be, if they cannot get their mind in a better place sitting out on your deck and listening to nature, they need professional help."

There are two separate table and chair combinations as well as lounge furniture, a vine covered trellis and full feeders that attract a wide variety of birds. You’re likely to see Red-tailed/Red-shouldered Hawks, clever Ravens and Hummingbirds as well as Finches, Western Bluebirds, Grosbeaks, Towhees and more.

Livingroom

Right outside the French doors you'll find the clean Gas Grill and an abundance of flowering pots and native plants that will surround you, gold pans are also provided for those who would like to try their hand at striking it rich in the creek. ;-)

ITALIAN CREEK is significant, the boulders creating it are magnificent and great for exploring and just 10' downstream from the house is the waterfall, it is amazing to see in the winter and spring! The creek is seasonal however there is water running in it six to eight months out of the year and there are small, grassy pools amongst the rocks, year-round.

SUITABILITY...

This secret hideaway can provide the newlywed couple an exquisite honeymoon destination and is also a wonderfully private place for romantic occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays and surprise vacation getaways. It is particularly well suited for couples and small groups of friends or family (ideally with either very young, or somewhat older children) traveling together so please, come and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of local wine outside on the deck while enjoying the sunrise over the hills with the hawks flying by. Maybe even take a short hike around the property or simply relax in front of the fire, the possibilities are endless here in this exceptionally clean, easy to find, well-appointed retreat.

Location

Sierrascape

The Scape from Across the Creek

SierraScape sits well off Hwy 49 just nine easy miles south of the historic Gold Rush town of Mariposa and is ideally located in between two different entrances to Yosemite National Park, both well under an hour away. These two entrance routes (via Highway 140 or Highway 41) offer a myriad of terrific activities and attractions along the way to the park.

Merced River

Hwy 140, the scenic “all weather highway”, meanders through the Wild and Scenic Merced River Canyon and takes you directly into Yosemite Valley, through the “Arch Rock” entrance. The Merced River Recreation Area at Briceburg is just a 14 drive from The Scape and has small, sandy beaches just perfect for picnics, wading, and summertime swimming. The river is also great for fishing, hiking, camping, wild life viewing, and for the even more adventurous, white-water rafting and kayaking. There are several commercial rafters who provide trips down portions of the river.

Traveling in the other direction, up Hwy. 41 outside of Oakhurst will lead you to the southern entrance into Yosemite where you’ll find things to do and see such as the world famous Mariposa Grove’s Giant Sequoias, Glacier Point, Badger Pass Ski Area, Goat Meadow Winter Sports Area where you can cross-country ski or let the kids play and sled in the snow and of course beautiful BASS LAKE with its water sports, beaches and restaurants. In addition, there are some fantastic hiking trails (many that welcome dogs) and the historic Sugar Pine Railroad adventure, a really fun thing to do as a family!

Closer to home you can enjoy downtown Mariposa's historic charm, its art galleries, antique and gift shops as well as the California State Mining Exhibit and the Mariposa Gold Country Museum and History Center, both of which are WELL worth visiting. You can see California's oldest operating courthouse here, or tour our local wineries and taste some of the area's award-winning mountain wines.

SierraScape is exceptionally well-suited for couples, small families and friends traveling together so come and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of local wine outside on the deck and enjoy the STARS or the sunrise over the hills from the comfort of the full-size, open-air hot tub. Take a short hike around the property or simply relax in front of the fire here in this exceptionally clean, easy to find, well-appointed paradise, we look forward to perhaps hearing from you soon.
