A Perfect Experience at Bass Lake
We decided rather last minute late August 2012 to make a Yosemite trip, first time visit for my wife, kids, and in-laws - and ended up staying in this house primarily because the owner was so easy to work with. It was great to have all the amenities such as towels and linens included as we arrived from Southern California at 12:30am and the big beds were ready to go and the kids' bunks were a matter of a sheet or sleeping bag (very warm nights in Summer). Directly across the street from the lake, literally 50 yards to the water, was a beach area for our 3 kiddies to splash around (2012 lake water level was low for dam construction so beach size may vary) and convenient dock to utilize for watercraft or boats. House was immaculately clean, with newer addition to an original cabin with all wood kitchen. We enjoyed dining on the beautiful deck and lake view for breakfast and dinners, there was TV/DVD and games for the kids. The first morning, the kids were on the upstairs deck outside the bedroom and were excited to see deer eating berries toward the back of the house. The location is on the less-crowded side of the lake near The Forks, which is a quintessential cabin-style store/diner which is famous for it's classic breakfast and hamburgers, and has convenient limited groceries, primarily for a day at the lake, or a milk-run if you need it. You can also rent boats there too. Easy drive across the lake to more conveniences, groceries/restaurants/post office/marina. Nearby Oakhurst has most everything, including a Rite-Aid/pharmacy, etc. We made easy day trip to Yosemite Valley floor one day, and another day to Wawona for lunch and the Sequoia Grove, after the Sugar Pine steam railroad (located outside the Yosemite park near Fish Camp). The $20 per car Yosemite fee is good for 7 days, so this was perfect to day-trip twice, if you don't mind the curvy roads...,
All-in-all this was a perfect stay with lasting memories, and would certainly return here again as it felt like our home away from home.
