NEAR YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK/BASS LAKE/NATIONAL FORESTS

Bass Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Located in the exact center of California. Minutes from Yosemite, national forests, John Muir Wilderrness for hiking, dirt biking, 4-W driving, etc. Yet, 3-4 hours to San Francisco, Los Angeles or the Pacific Ocean.

Private home in valley of former summer Indian camp, cattle ranch, and dude ranch. Spacious, sunny and light with landscaping including lush lawn for children to play safely while parents watch from the kitchen or deck. Piano, ukele, bongos as well. There areas for volley ball, baseball and basket ball in the community open space area at the Club House.

Surrounded by National Forest, the community is composed of custom homes varying from multiple acres to 1/3 acre lots located along narrow paved roads winding through beautiful cedars, black oaks and pines. Directly accros the lane, 40 acres has been designated open space, which has tree-lined all year Whiskey Creek sandwiched between 2 beautiful meadows. Abundant wildlife and wildflowers. Morning and evening walks to the cascades and the Indian grinding holes is a wonderful way to feel the Sierra.

Mariposa Grove (Giant Sequoias) at the South gate of Yosemite National Park is 45 minutes away. Hwy 41 carries you to the Valley floor, 60 miles from the house. Historic Sierra National Scenic Byway only 5 minutes away. Both offering history, hiking, mountain biking, off-road vehicle trails/roads, fishing, hunting in season and swimming in the community's Whiskey Creek, or at tranquil Manzanita Lake (15 minutes) or Bass Lake (also 15-20 minutes away). Manzanita Lake allows non-motorized boats and Bass Lake the full spectrum of jet skis, water skiing, sailing and family house patio boats for day use.

Events include dancing and eating at Bass Lake's outdoor Jazz on the Lake every Friday night. Not limited to age. Wawona Hotel has a pianist that plays requests and Saturday nights holds a BBQ and square dancing for all ages. Other festivals and art events are continually provided for tourists.

Horse back riding is available at Fish Camp (35 minutes), groups hikes and nature walks are also available as well as tours of the Sierra Visit National Scenic Byway or Yosemite Valley.

For those strenuous hikers, the Scenic Byway is the starting point for a trans-Sierra hike to Mammoth. One day each way if fit. For more casual hiking or biking, the Scenic Byway offers less than 5-mile hikes to lakes or peaks showing the beauty of our many granite domes. Oh yes, Yosemite is ready to show you its grandeur too. 45 minutes to Mariposa's splendid trees and history; 20 minutes to historic Wawona Hotel and another 45 minutes to either Glacier Point or the Valley.

Snow sports' enthusiasts can enjoy the family friendly slopes at Badger Pass or the challenge of Sierra Summit. Both 1 1/2 hours away. Ski rentals are reliable. Snow shoeing or cross country skiing up Peckinpaw Road (Yes, Sam Peckinpaw grew up here). Historical cabins, wildlife and sheer beauty will be experienced. Snow does cover the Cascadel Valley, but cannot be depended upon. When it is present, people ski along the road and in the 40-acre open space. There are two large LL Bean Snow Tubes for guests and a snow park is located just beforer the south entrance to the Park.

Relax or be as busy as you would like. Great Mexican restaurant in North Fork, more formal dining at Bass Lake. You will surely enjoy visiting the little mountain town of North Fork for movie rentals or groceries. It takes you back 30 years. The Sierra ambience is waiting for you. Everything I have ever wanted is here in Cascadel and I would really like to share it with you.

Keywords: Roomy Bright 2-story Mountain House sleeps 10 fully equipped. 20 miles from south gate to Yosemite, 8 miles from Bass Lake. All year running stream, 40-acre common area, middle of historic natn'l forest.

Beautiful home, amazing host

We walked into this beautiful home and immediately felt warm and welcomed. Suzann is so organized and prepared, going the extra mile to make our vacation a happy and easy one. We contacted her about the WiFi, and she took immediate care of it. She was very accommodating, responsive, and friendly. The beds were very comfortable, the amenities are modern, and the house is beautiful, clean, modern, and spacious. The trip to Yosemite Valley is about 1.75 hours, but only about 45 minutes to the gate and the Mariposa Valley of Giant Trees - which is just glorious! This is a perfect stay for large families, young children, teens, seniors, and more. We immediately wanted to rebook for the next year! Thank you, Suzann!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sasha for your generous review. In particular, noting the time to travel to the Park gate and to the Valley. That is such important information for guests. You were also all so cooperative and flexible with the internet issue and thank you for narrowing it down to the hissing router. I will replace it immediately. Really, your e-mails and telephone calls were so full of enthusiasm, I wish I were there to share in your planning and your good time. You were all thoughtful and gracious guests and I as stated before, "Come Back!"

Great place to spend a few days to relax

We rent houses or apartments a couple of times per year though VRBO but we have yet to see one that is that well taken care of and organized.

We stayed around Thanksgiving and there was pretty much everything that we needed already in the kitchen (apart from the turkey) it was clean and overall we had a great time.

The nature around is beautiful and I can imagine that it's even better during the spring. Unfortunately this year there hasn't been much snow in California but with the recent storms they might have gotten some snow showers there now.

The owner contacted us several weeks and then again several days before arrival with updates and instructions and refunded us the security deposit promptly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Deyan. Get aways are a partnership and I am happy to hear my part worked for you. You were wonderful gracious guests and I hope you come back. As you said, the springtime is the loveliest.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Our family had a wonderful stay at the home. The house is well stocked with all basic supplies. The home is very spacious and cozy all at the same time! We will come back again and stay longer if we ever have the opportunity. Only word of advice, it's better to come during the daylight hours. We came in pretty late and it was a bit unnerving to get your bearings in the dark since the home is in the woods (though not isolated, we discovered many homes in the community in the day time). Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and, in particular, your travel experience to the house in the dark. Guests need to be reminded there are no street lights in most areas of the Sierra, even the little towns, and it can be unnerving travel late at night. Also, wildlife are active and can jump into your path, especially deer. So, please let me know when you will be arriving late. At least I can ensure house lights are on for you. And, again, thank Arpita for bringing this to my attention.

Comfortable Cascadel

We had three generations staying in this beautiful house and everyone's needs were met. It was comfortable and so much fun! With Bass Lake a short drive away and the beautiful woodlands around the house there were plenty of activities as well as relaxing happening. From grandparents to young children to newborn, we all left happy and rejuvenated. We will be back!
