Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Whether you are looking for a peaceful mountain getaway or trying to find lodging for your group near Yosemite National Park, Sunset Roost is the perfect choice! The Sunset Roost offers quiet solitude in a beautiful foothill setting.

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!

A Great Stay !

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Roost is a great stay ! Tracy and David great are communicators and the house was a wonderful quiet respite with all the creature comforts one would need. One of the main roads, along the Merced River, into Yosemite NP is a beautiful drive and easily accessible from The Roost. And, although quite rainy when we were there, we did experience one breathtaking sunset ! Highly recommend the Sunset Roost if you are in the Yosemite area.

Sunset Roost

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose Sunset Roost for a romantic get away. The Roost was all we could have hoped for. The location is perfectly private. We will plan to revisit the Sunset Roost again in the future.

Great weekend getaway with privacy and beautiful landscapes

  • 5 of 5

Only 15 minutes from Mariposa and 45 from Yosemite, this private location was perfect as a gateway to explore the area. The home was lovely with beautiful artwork covering the walls, and with all the amenities needed to make you feel like you are home, it was a real sanctuary after a full day of hiking and exploring the amazing landscapes.

Each night ended with a soak in the hot tub with a glass of wine and a sky filled with stars, wonderful!

David and Tracy were terrific hosts, very responsive and thorough with helpful tips and instructions. We would definitely love to stay again!

Lovely Midpines Home!

  • 5 of 5

A group of four of us (friends from college) loved staying in this beautiful home in Midpines for our reunion! The house was clean and well organized, with a nicely stocked kitchen. We started our day off by sitting in the hammock on the back porch, coffee in hand. The Roost was just an hour away from Yosemite Valley, easy travel for a day trip. The hot tub was a treat after a long hike and probably the only reason we could walk the next day. Just remember to bring your own shampoos. Thank you, David and Tracy!

Peaceful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at Sunset Roost! My three-year-old loved exploring the property with her grandpa. They spent a lot of time on the swing and the hammock. The house itself is beautifully decorated. The artwork is amazing! The location was perfect. We spent a couple of days traveling to Yosemite and other days shopping and hiking in and around Mariposa. Everything on the property is really easy to use with clear instructions. Inside and outside are cleaned and well maintained. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable and peaceful vacation at the Sunset Roost.
