About the property

1200 sq. ft.House, 2 Bedrooms deck, great room Sleeps 4

The tranquil beauty of this area is the perfect recipe for relaxation and rejuvenation. Come enjoy the spectacular wonders of Yosemite National Park, Bass Lake and the Ansel Adams wilderness. Thousands of acres of hiking trails, clear mountain streams and lakes within a short driving distance from the property welcome you all year. The peace of this area is a perfect setting for family gatherings, personal retreats and leisurely exploration. At all seasons of the year it provides a lovely home to return to after a day of skiing, snow boarding, snow mobile riding or sledding in the nearby snow parks, wilderness areas and ski resorts at Sierra Summit and Badger Pass.

This lovely mountain retreat is a perfect nesting place to stay and recharge after a glorious day in the mountains. Many people choose to just stay here during the day and relax on the deck or in the spacious great room and enjoy the natural setting away from the busyness of the city.

It is a beautiful custom 1200 square foot house located adjacent to the Sierra National Forest. It is 3 miles from Bass Lake and 23 miles from Yosemite National Park. The land is a wildlife sanctuary for deer, silver foxes and other wonderful creatures. There are no hiking trails on the property itself. There are many trails within short driving distance. There is a book at the house that gives information on recreational activities in the area.

There is custom stonework behind the wood stove depicting a mountain sunrise with trees and clouds made by a world class stone mason.

There is a flat screen Samsung television in the great room.

The kitchen has granite counter tops. The bathrooms both have dual shower heads.There are 2 bedrooms. Each Bedroom has a queen sized bed.

The kind of air conditioning in the cabin is a water evaporation cooler commonly called a 'swamp cooler'. It works well and is very refreshing unless it is humid and very hot outside. Then, it cools the house down but not as well as a regular 'air conditioner'. It will typically cool the house to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside temperature during these hot (80 to 100 and over) summer days. The nights are cool even in the hottest weather so it's lovely to sleep with the windows open and breathe in the pines and healing mountain air.

The house is nestled among pines, oaks and manzanitas with cedar log pillars at the front entry and forming the landscaped gardens.

It is a sacred site perfect for personal creative retreats, solitude and recreation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yosemite was stunning with its colors amidst the beautiful Sierras and Bass Lake gave us a gentle day to fish and explore in our kayaks. The animal came to visit at your home which was such a treat. I must tell you that the design of your vacation home is impressive. The use of space, for the practical reasons as well as the feeling created, was so well thought out, planned and enjoyed. I spent alot of time marveling at the unique detail throughout. Wisdom House will certainly be on our list for a return to your area.

Yosemite Trip

  • 5 of 5

Excellent rental property. We have stayed in a number of VRBO rentals and while all the others were satisfactory, this one was the best. The cabin is pristine, the location is very good and the facilities meet all your needs. This rental is especially good for seniors and couples who travel together. Seeing a coyote was the highlight of the trip. Even though we were there during an exceptional heat wave, the cabin was very comfortable due to an efficient cooling system. Highly recommended.

Perfectly secluded cabin!!

Thank you so much, Mary, for letting our group stay at your cabin on such short notice. Even though we were only there for one night, it was EXACTLY what we were looking for! Beautiful, perfectly spacious two bedroom home on a private property hidden amongst the trees. Very nice open kitchen layout with a bar top and stocked with necessities. Bathrooms were very clean and well-designed. Beds were comfortable (we slept like babies!) =)

The wrap around porch was awesome and each bedroom had its own access to the porch! Lots of windows in the cabin, providing ample natural light as well as gorgeous scenery! We would've loved to use the BBQ and sit outside for a meal...next time!! We will be back, Mary!! Thanks, again! ~Sarah, Sonia, and Justin

My family and I stayed at Mary's home for 5 nights over New Year's. The home was perfect for a family of 4 with young children. Lots of property, very little traffic and such a serene setting - very relaxing, and well equipped! Would highly recommend!

The property is extremely well maintained, can't think of a single negative I experienced while staying there. The property has all the essentials you could ever need for a weekend stay. Definitely felt the cabin was worth the money. My girlfriend said it best when she said she loved the cabin and she never wanted to leave. Scenic, peaceful, and quiet. The perfect get away for anyone who needs to destress and just escape the struggles of life for a weekend. Loved my short stay and wish it could have been longer. Perfect 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful location in comfortable cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing and peaceful 4 days in this cozy and comfortable cabin. We would definitely stay again. The beds are very warm and soft and the bathrooms are very nice. The kitchen is beautiful and has everything one needs to prepare a meal. The deck that surrounds the cabin is awesome and provides many areas to sit and relax.

Thank you, Mary. Your cabin is beautiful!
