Bass Lake House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
Welcome to our get-a-way on Bass Lake!
When you arrive you will be blown away by the wide angle view you have of the lake.
This view is not filled with boats and clanking docks. It is pure lake. Our community dock is just off to the right of the view and about a 30 second walk down.
This cabin was originally built in 1930 by the Duncan family out of Fresno, but has seen several remodels over the years. What started out as 300 square feet grew to 1800. The original cabin still remains in the middle of the home as does what is left of the old chimney, which fell over years ago. Now you will find all the modern conveniences, wood pine floors, triple bunk full size beds, washer & dryer, air conditioning, etc.
Being positioned on the point gives the home one of the best views on the lake. There are no other homes in the view. We can't call it lake front technically only because the little country road is between us and the lake. The National Forest lines the other side of the lake.
Just a short walk through Wishon Camp and the woods and you are at Miller's Landing for hamburgers, ice cream, fishing hooks and worms!
The deer path on the property is frequented almost daily by the real locals if you remain quiet.
This is really a home to us and does not feel like a rental. It has been beautifully decorated to give you that lake cabin feeling. We are happy to share our family's getaway with you. Be sure to check the calendar to see availability.

About Ed Hanley
My wife and three daughters have been vacationing at Bass Lake for 18 years. For ten of those years we rented in Willow Cove and loved it. Then we found Wishon on the other side of the lake near Miller's Landing. There are only 26 homes there. 13 along the water and 13 up behind those homes up off the water. We were lucky enough to acquire the only home on 1/2 acre on the point! The rest is history!
Ed Hanley purchased this house in 2004
Why Ed Hanley chose Bass Lake
This lake has been the get-a-way spot for many families for many generations. What makes Bass Lake so special is that it is at the 3400 foot elevation so you are in the big trees and out of the hot valley. The lake is considered a shallow lake which makes the water warm...up to 85 degrees in August! Less than 10% of the lake's shoreline has homes on it, so it is not over developed. That which is not developed is National Forest land. You couldn't design a better formula for a lake.
What makes this house unique
Only a few homes in our neighborhood rent and only one couple lives there year-round. The homes are mostly empty year-round. This makes it very quiet and private! There is ample parking for your boat or jet ski trailers so no need to store them off-site. The launch ramp is 1/4 mile away and is FREE! Bass Lake affords great water sports including water skiing, wakeboarding and fishing. Being that Bass Lake is considered a 'shallow' lake, the water gets warm...up to 85 degrees in August! The locals know a great spot to rope swing and cliff dive. I will give you those secrets. The home is one hour from the floor of Yosemite! Right next to the house is a great trail head for any hikers in your family..
