My brother and I, along with our wives, bought this house in 2013 from Dave and Erica Moyer (Who took unbelievable care of the house). We both greatly enjoyed staying here, and were excited when the opportunity arose for us to acquire it! There is so much to do in the Oakhurst area, including kayaking down the Merced River in the summer, kayaking and fishing on Bass Lake, as well as hiking and exploring in the gorgeous Yosemite Valley. Tenaya Lodge is a short 10-15 minute drive from our vacation home and in the winter it is a fun place to go for sledding, ice skating or sitting in the restaurant/bar enjoying hot chocolate or Baileys and coffee. Tenaya Lodge also has horse drawn sleigh rides in the winter and is super fun to experience at Christmas time. We found a snow park just past Tenaya Lodge and spent two days sledding there! There are so many other wonderful adventures that Oakhurst & the surrounding areas have to offer. Golfing is another hobby of ours and there are several beautiful golf courses in Oakhurst, Yosemite and the surrounding areas.
We decided to share our home as a vacation rental so that others would be able to enjoy all there is to offer in the area and at the same time help cover expenses. Our home is in a perfect, centralized location with a tremendous amount of things to do and many places to explore that are in minutes from our home. Every season in the mountains is an amazing time: the beautiful autumn colors in the fall; the snow in the winter; the wildflowers blooming in the spring; the nice warm summer days BBQ'ing, kayaking down the Merced river, jet skiing at Bass Lake and the warm summer nights.
Our little mountain retreat is a perfect place for Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gatherings, and we love the fact that others can also share their own family memories at our home during the holidays.

There are many reasons we chose to buy our vacation rental here in Oakhurst. First off, it is centrally located to everything! The town of Oakhurst has Vons, Raley's, RiteAid, Starbucks, movie cinema, hardware stores, restaurants and anything else you might need is only a 7-10 minute drive away. We are located 10 minutes away from Bass Lake; just close enough to be convenient, but far enough away from the over-crowded and expensive rental cabins. Our home is located at approximately 3,000 foot elevation and just below the snow line. When there is a snow storm, we will get snow, but it won't always stick to the ground.That means you can come and go as you please and not worry about getting stuck. The main roads (Hwy 41 going towards Tenaya Lodge) will be plowed if snow does stick.
Another great feature is that our home is located in an area with lots of pine trees and mountain views. The houses in the neighborhood are not right next to each other, making it feel more like a mountain getaway, compared to staying in a neighborhood with lots of houses next to you.
There are so many places to go out and explore; even without taking a car, you can walk out from our front door and go for a hike.
There are so many places to hike nearby and lots of places to fish and explore. Families that visit often enjoy golf at the prestigious Sierra Meadows Country Club in Oakhurst ( 20 minutes away) as well as the historic Wawona Golf course in Yosemite (40 minutes away). There is also opportunity for kayaking at Bass Lake and Yosemite's Merced River in the summer. We fish at Bass Lake in the Summer and Fall and do lots of hiking & exploring. Nelder Grove is grove of giant Sequoia trees located up the road from the house and has one of the largest Sequoias in the world, 'The Bull Buck Tree'. There are too many places and 'things to do to list, but we are very informative with what to do out there. Just let us know what you are interested in, what you enjoy doing, and we will let you know exactly where to go.
