The Tulip House is nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is the enchanting legacy of Jill Cooley, ready to amaze lovers of fantasy, of art, of whimsy. It is a home only the soul of a gypsy could envision and create. Susan Cooley is owner and 'curator' of this art gallery, and I invite you to become immersed in the extraordinary craftsmanship, the magical integration of carved wood, tile work that looks like quilting, and wonderful art collected for for decades, resulting in this wonderful and cozy home.
It is a home of fairy tales and storybooks, part "Little House on the Prairie," part South Sea Island, infused with a Hobbit House and a gypsy caravan.
It is located in Bass Lake, which offers fishing, jet skiing, shopping, hiking, or simply relaxing.
20 minutes from Yosemite's South Entrance.
Close to the Sugar Pine Railroad.
Near vineyards, museums, and art galleries.
10 minutes from Oakhurst and 1 hour from Fresno Intl Airport.
The home is such a great fusion of styles, of artisans talents, with nods to artist Piet Mondrian, tile work of the Alhambra in Spain, with a mix of the San Francisco Victorians, with carved doors and archways evoking Bali, and with the home spun quilting in both bedding and in tile and wood combinations.
There are 2 gas fireplace/stoves, a huge well stocked kitchen. The master bedroom has a king size bed and bathroom with a huge shower. In the living room, there is a purple velvety sofa bed that has an enhanced 10" combination foam and air mattress, and the African bathroom. The second bedroom is the Loft over the garage, which sleeps 3-5 people, and has a bathroom, TV, table and chairs, and 2 recliners. There is a laundry area. Off the kitchen is a porch for lounging or for dining, and on one side, an area to barbeque.
There is WiFi, cable TV, and high speed internet. There is a phone for local calls and 911.
Pets are possibly accepted, and must be disclosed to the owner. It is a pet friendly house, but not one for dogs that are not house broken, or are chewers of carpets, table legs, or decks. Yep, please, if your animal has any of these bad habits, don't bring them.
Of course, the Tulip House is smoke free.
