The tranquil beauty of this area is the perfect recipe for relaxation and rejuvenation.Come enjoy the spectacular wonders of Yosemite National Park, Bass Lake and the Ansel Adams wilderness. Thousands of acres of hiking trails, clear mountain streams and lakes within a short driving distance from the property welcome you all year. The peace of this area is a perfect setting for family gatherings, personal retreats and leisurely exploration. At all seasons of the year it provides a lovely home to return to after a day of skiing, snow boarding, snow mobile riding or sledding in the nearby snow parks, wilderness areas and ski resorts at Sierra Summit and Badger Pass.
This lovely mountain retreat is a perfect nesting place to stay and recharge after a glorious day in the mountains. Many people choose to just stay here during the day and relax on the deck or in the spacious great room and enjoy the natural setting away from the busyness of the city.
It is a beautiful custom 1200 square foot house located adjacent to the Sierra National Forest. It is 3 miles from Bass Lake and 23 miles from Yosemite National Park. The land is a wildlife sanctuary for deer, silver foxes and other wonderful creatures. There are no hiking trails on the property itself. There are many trails within short driving distance. There is a book at the house that gives information on recreational activities in the area.
There is custom stonework behind the wood stove depicting a mountain sunrise with trees and clouds made by a world class stone mason.
There is a flat screen Samsung television in the great room.
The kitchen has granite counter tops. The bathrooms both have dual shower heads.There are 2 bedrooms. Each Bedroom has a queen sized bed.
The kind of air conditioning in the cabin is a water evaporation cooler commonly called a 'swamp cooler'. It works well and is very refreshing unless it is humid and very hot outside. Then, it cools the house down but not as well as a regular 'air conditioner'. It will typically cool the house to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside temperature during these hot (80 to 100 and over) summer days. The nights are cool even in the hottest weather so it's lovely to sleep with the windows open and breathe in the pines and healing mountain air.
The house is nestled among pines, oaks and manzanitas with cedar log pillars at the front entry and forming the landscaped gardens.
It is a sacred site perfect for personal creative retreats, solitude and recreation.
Yosemite was stunning with its colors amidst the beautiful Sierras and Bass Lake gave us a gentle day to fish and explore in our kayaks. The animal came to visit at your home which was such a treat. I must tell you that the design of your vacation home is impressive. The use of space, for the practical reasons as well as the feeling created, was so well thought out, planned and enjoyed. I spent alot of time marveling at the unique detail throughout. Wisdom House will certainly be on our list for a return to your area.
Excellent rental property. We have stayed in a number of VRBO rentals and while all the others were satisfactory, this one was the best. The cabin is pristine, the location is very good and the facilities meet all your needs. This rental is especially good for seniors and couples who travel together. Seeing a coyote was the highlight of the trip. Even though we were there during an exceptional heat wave, the cabin was very comfortable due to an efficient cooling system. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful stay. The cabin was well maintained and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The property was beautiful and quiet. 10 minutes to Bass Lake and about 20 minutes to Oakhurst. The owner was very helpful and even recorded a football game for my husband. (We were on the road to the cabin when the game aired.) Now that's going the extra mile for your guests!
My husband and I stayed at Mary's beautiful cabin to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Neither of us had been to the Yosemite area before and this was an unforgettable vacation. The cabin is gorgeous...has everything you could possibly need and more. The details and thought that went into the design on this beautiful home are remarkable and make it very special. The bed was so comfortable and the linens so soft. We didn't spent a whole lot of time at the property since most of our time was spent driving & hiking around Yosemite and taking it in all the magic is has to offer. It was great to come "home" and relax here after a long day of being out and about. We made some amazing meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed star gazing at night from the wrap around deck outside. We even got to see some beautiful Mule Deer just a few feet from the living room in the mornings drinking from the watering hole.
The next time we come back to Yosemite (and we will be back) we will plan to stay here again. What an incredible find and a special place. Thank you Mary!!
If your looking for a get away at a affordable price this is the place for you. This cabin has EVEYTHING you need for a weekend. The rooms are nice, they have there own bathrooms. Nice and quiet location. Bass lake is near by, and fun to visit. Many hiking trails you can enjoy. There's also a market store down the road in case you need anything. As for customer service, Mary is the best! Dident have any big issues, but if you have any, she emails/answers quickly and resolves them. My fiancé and I love to travel, and we deffiantly enjoyed this place. We have been recommending this place to many friends and family since we have got back.
It is a lovely house and has everything you need. The tile work and stone work in the bathrooms, kitchen, entry and fireplace are particularly beautiful. There is a wrap around deck from which you can watch deer and other wildlife and the stars at night are incredible. It is very close to Bass Lake and Oakhurst. However, it is quite a drive if your plan is to visit Yosemite on a regular or daily basis. It is over an hour to the Valley floor and about 2.5 hours to Sequoia. It is really close to Bass Lake and other wilderness areas, though.
This home has everything anyone could ask for. Spacious, clean, most comfortable beds I've had away from home. Great for those looking for hiking , sight seeing... Or just to get away from hustle and bustle of everyday life. We all enjoyed out stay here . Can do lots of things or nothing at all, the home is well equipped.
