Distinctive Yosemite Area Lodging
Come for Yosemite, stay with us...
We Do Vacation Rentals Right
Ideally located just outside Yosemite in beautiful and historic Mariposa, California, SierraScape Vacation Rentals offers two first-class, unique, peaceful, private, well appointed and exceptionally clean vacation Homes/Cabins which promise to provide guests a most welcoming, comfortable and memorable “Home Away From Home.”
Conveniently located within four, to nine miles of the town of Mariposa, SierraScape’s vacation rentals are all within 30 minutes of Yosemite National Park. Although a short distance from Yosemite itself, both homes provide 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.
While each of our places offers an entirely different style, locale, and experience and is ideally located for enjoying all that Yosemite and its surrounding areas have to offer, they’re also perfect for folks keen on being able to just sit back, relax and enjoy themselves in their own private paradise (and not be surrounded by tourists).
In fact, staying outside the park allows visitors a far more diverse vacation experience than being inside Yosemite ever can. From either of our cabins you can be in town within ten minutes and either choose from a wide variety of great, local restaurants or simply enjoy Mariposa's historic charm, its art galleries, antique and gift shops or the county park and playground. There are also the California State Mining and Mineral Museum and the Mariposa Gold Country Museum and History Center, (a really fun & exceptional place).
You might also like to visit California's oldest operating courthouse, see our historic jail house built in 1858 or tour our local Wineries and taste some of the area's award-winning mountain wines. You can also take advantage of our local, Wednesday afternoon Farmer’s Market (seasonal), catch the free, summertime live-music in the Art Park (a great venue with some excellent groups, kids and friendly dogs included!) or the live, evening music outside at the River Rock Cafe'. You can even take a swim in our beautiful, heated town pool or spend some awesome board time at our new and challenging Skate Park. There’s simply more to your vacation in Mariposa, and don’t forget about the legendary Gold Rush region along Historic Highway 49, a genuine California adventure!
Additionally, both of our homes are exceptionally outfitted with an abundance of comforts, conveniences and useful items not found in many other vacation rentals, just glance through our Guestbook to see that we do indeed go way beyond “the usual” to make certain our guests’ experience with us far exceeds their highest hopes and expectations. We are local, managing owners and live within four, to ten miles of both homes (we do not reside "on" any of our vacation rental properties so your privacy there is complete), the personal approach and superior quality control this allows us to employ is immediately apparent upon one’s arrival. Further, we have over 44 combined years living in the Yosemite area and are nearly always available for assistance without ever being underfoot, or intrusive.
Another potential benefit to staying with us is that we welcome and encourage families with young children and offer the use of a variety of baby/child items such as gates, highchairs, booster seats, cribs & Pak-n-Plays (travel cots), strollers and lots of books and toys, all of which can be cumbersome and difficult to travel with. We understand that those who are traveling with children are often unable to spend the better part of each and every day sight-seeing but rather need to be able to spend a significant portion of their time at “home”, what better place to be than in one of our spacious, quiet and comfortable places where you can relax while the children can sleep, and play?
In terms of Weather, this area enjoys marked, yet relatively mild seasons but regardless, we are ideally located along the “All-Weather” highway so Yosemite is always accessible. FYI, as you may well know, Summer is by far the most popular time to visit Yosemite but keep in mind, the remaining three seasons bring far more beauty to the area and are not plagued by those summertime crowds. To assist you in choosing your best time of year to visit Yosemite, check out our FAQ's page for a detailed description of each month's typical weather, etc., it's really useful!
And of particular importance, each home's driveway, unlike MANY in our rural mountain area, is located directly, yet well off a quiet, paved country road, you won't be forced to navigate miles of steep, rough, un-paved, muddy/dusty, or rutted dirt roads to reach these getaways (something to seriously consider when making your vacation rental choice as you'll likely be making the drive many times). Both gravel driveways allow for virtually any vehicle (all-wheel drive is always recommended in winter) to easily access the property, year-round and the surrounding roads are quickly plowed in the case of occasional, Mariposa snowfall.
So, there are of course many options when choosing your Yosemite accommodation but we hope we've encouraged you to consider choosing from ours. We now invite you to click on the photos and browse each home’s own individual page for more information, pictures, pricing and availability. We welcome your questions should you have them so please don't hesitate to inquire if we can be of any help with your planning.
As a family owned and operated business, we're dedicated to making your stay a most enjoyable one. We hope to hear from you soon so we can help make your ideal vacation come true...
