Our family includes myself and my husband, as well as our three children. We love to camp, garden, swim, hike and vacation. We also enjoy music and photography. My husband is in the fire service and I coordinate events. We live on the Central Coast of California. We are involved with our children's activities and their schools making it hard to enjoy our cabin and the mountains as often as we would like. We enjoy sharing our cabin with others and knowing they will enjoy the wonderful experiences that the area offers.

Kelly Barreto purchased this cabin in 2005

After 10 years of visiting the Oakhurst/Bass Lake area we decided to purchase a second home there. We had dreamed of buying in the area for several years and often visited properties during our vacations. We purchased the cabin in 2004, but rented it to a full time tenant almost immediatly. We had several tenants over the years and didn't consider using it as a vacation home until February of 2009. We stocked the home with all of the comforts that other rentals we had stayed in offered. We also chose to decorate the cabin with items from the fire service, as we enjoyed the idea of sharing the toys/decor that we have collected over the years.

The location of the cabin is perfect for our needs. It is in a wooded residential neighborhood, offering the feeling of being in the mountains, but not feeling isolated. The drive into Yosemite is a short and scenic drive. The quaint town of Oakhurst offers all of the amenities that we need. From a movie theater to grocery stores. But our favorite is Bass Lake! We love the warm water and incredible views of the tree lined shores and scenic mountain backgrounds.

The cabin offers a wonderful central location. Some of the areas and activities that we have enjoyed while in the area include: Historic Yosemite Flats Park, trail rides on horse back, the historic Sierra Skyranch Inn (They offer some interesting ghost sighting stories and have been featured on several TV shows lately). We also have enjoyed a little gambling at Chuckcansi Casino in Coarsegold. A drive down historic Hwy 49 an hour or so are some of the historic gold country towns that we have enjoy visiting that include: Mariposa and (my kids favorite) Colombia. We have heard from several of our past renters that the central location for perfect for their visit to the area. We are thrilled they agree!

Great Location for Yosemite Visit

  • 5 of 5
'Fire Escape Cabin' is conveniently located between Oakhurst and Yosemite National Park in a peaceful, small neighborhood. The cabin was meticulously cleaned and maintained, well appointed with necessities, and very comfortable (especially for families with children). My two older teens and I felt very safe and comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the back porch looking at all the stars! Although we live in a rural south Louisiana area, there seems to be more "real" stars in Oakhurst, California! The owner's are very friendly and a pleasure to do business with. We highly recommend Fire Escape Cabin. Also, if you are looking for an excellent/unique place to dine while there, you must visit South Gate Brew Co. It is a fantastic micro brewery and restaurant and has absolutely the best home made root beer!

This is a great big cabin! There's plenty of space, that's great if you have a crawling baby! It takes like 15 min to get to the entrance of the national park but that's ok. There's a washing machine and tumbler! And the kitchen is fully equipped including a wonderful BBQ! We would love to come again!

Very cute, charming, and cozy

  • 4 of 5
The cabin is very cute and charming. The window air conditioners upstairs were already cooling the place off when we arrived, which was a nice welcome. The beds were comfortable with 2 separate bedrooms for privacy. We enjoyed the informative literature compiled in a notebook for things to do and information on Yosemite. We had a pretty good selection of DVD's to keep us entertained. My favorite aspect of the stay was the visits from local deer every day just off the back deck. The deck was very pleasant for relaxing with plenty of shade and a nice patio table/umbrella big enough for an average size family.

Thanks for the wonderful stay and cleaning environment! We loved it.

Our family had a blast at this rental. That cabin is in a great location to restaurants and shops and the entrance to Yosemite and Bass Lake. The unit is even better than in the pictures. Kelly was very friendly, accommodating, and informative. We would definitely reccommend!
