This is an image of our kids in Yosemite last summer, 2011...one of the many reasons why we chose our house. There is so much to do. My husband and I purchased this home in 2009 after vacationing in the Yosemite/Bass Lake area for a couple of years. We fell in love with the Sierra National Forest and so did our kids. We reside in Los Angeles and love to escape to the Family Lodge and enjoy nature. We come as often as we can and our kids never want to leave. The property is so relaxing and inspiring. My husband and I get great inspiration while we are here, an awesome retreat. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do!
We love this area, the big ponderosa pine trees, the lake, Yosemite and the peacefulness. We can be at Bass Lake in 5 minutes and Yosemite in 30 minutes. We often spend the day at the lake or Yosemite and come home to our hideaway in the woods. We love to get out of the city and enjoy nature...... watch the deer and the turkeys.....and the smell of the pine trees. There is also lots of land for our kids to run around on and they love it!
You'll enjoy lots of privacy, a gourmet kitchen (furnished with dishes and cookware by Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn), and luxury comfort with all new beds and luxury hotel linens. There are 4 acres of open, wooded land to run around on, plus the endless National Forest just outside our front door. There are many activities at the Family Lodge and very close by. Play a good old family game of badminton in the yard or take a short hike up the mountain behind the house and take in the breathtaking views. Bass Lake and Yosemite are so close and so beautiful, it's also great during the quiet off-season months! The Family Lodge is rustic, modern & very comfortable!
