Ideal location. Tranquill setting. Great views. White Sage Cottage offers California Casual Elegance among abundant Nature and is nestled on 15 pristine wooded acres. The setting is totally private and serene, 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 approx 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.

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 and a dvd player. There is excellent cell phone reception and free highspeed wireless internet is available.

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 Oakhurst

Ideal location: 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. 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.

Very nice studio, in a private setting. The place is very close to the town, but it feels it's miles away from everything. Very quiet and serene. As amenities go, you'll find everything you need. Also, the Jacuzzi is really nice and private (in the back yard).

We stayed for two nights and we plan to return, as this is a very convenient location South of Yosemite.

Did not want to leave

  • 5 of 5

This was, by far, the most relaxing immaculate and simplistic home away from home. Marianna was unbelievably helpful supportive and by far the best hostess we have experienced. The pictures do not do the inside justice. If you’re a picky traveler like we are and you want to go to Yosemite this is the place to be. Can’t think them enough for making our vacation so amazing.

Total Bliss

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you arrive to when you start the engine to leave Marianna makes sure your stay is memorable for all the RIGHT reasons. The touches are often small but personal and demonstrate why this rental is very much deserving of the plaudits it has previously received and this review merely attempts to add to.

Great location for Yosemite and its hinterland, beautifully clean and welcoming accommodation, and a host that will give you as much or as little assistance as you need during your stay.

We would have no hesitation in recommending White Sage Cottage and would love to have the opportunity to stay again in the future.
