We are 26 minutes to the south entrance according to driving notes in my review from a tenant as well as our experience driving into south entrance which is the entrance that has the giant grizzly seqoias. The yosemite train is also outside the park on the way in from our house on hi way 41, before the south entrance.

Behind the house is a school yard, which you cannot see but can hike to the top of in 5 minutes and cross over, for a football field, baseball field. tennis court, playground etc and occasional adult yoga class by a previous neighbor gym teacher of mine. WE have yoga one mile in town as well in case you want a local activity as well as the Mono Indian museum is catty corner behind us in 1/10 mile.

Look forward to hosting you. Liza and Mike

Why Liza Szabo chose Yosemite Area

Minutes from Bass Lake and the beauty of the Sierra Nevada leading into Yosemite National Park. One mile to town for gas, groceries, post office, coffee and shops yet in the mountains bordering nearby river and swimming, easy to get to. Three local waterfalls and three lakes, 2 miles, 5 miles and 12 miles from house.

What makes this house unique

Bass Lake nearby and just a short drive into Yosemite National Parks South gates, in 26 minutes posted by renters on our reviews and our experience also. Many amenities, stores, bar and grill, dining out, post office one mile from house.. Close to Badger Pass and China Peak ski areas. Three local waterfalls in 7 to 10 miles, Cascadel, Angel Falls and Whiskey falls offering local hiking and off the beaten road track no crowds or less as known more to locals who know the inside and outside of the Yosemite by way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE loved the house and the area. We are vacation rental maids in Los Angeles and needed a get away, we work so hard. Our kids loved it since they could walk to the ball parks and swing sets behind the property but is hidden and quiet. The views out were better than the other houses we stayed at in past years, which had none. The trees and rolling hills made a private spot yet just a few hundred feet to a perfect main road.We visited local falls, like cascadel of a friend of the owners and spent time at the river and drove into the park in 26 minutes, as well as we are only 5 miles to the bass lake dam where we walked our dogs and had a big sky , beauty, restaurants, hiking and more to do than even inside the park. This house was clean and had good vibes as well as not having to drive to everything inside the 90 square mile park which we found stunning but you have to drive inside to anything, this house we could play at the museum, rivers, lakes, domes and hike, the outside inside park, yosemite by way. We found the owners through VRBO and were impressed to find it clean, since I am a clean freak, and we visited this home many times. I told the owner she could post my notes as we dont get online that often, so busy cleaning other vacation rentals, and this one was CLEAN and beautiful with lots to do, great for kids and families to hang out without having to drive all day.

Private Acres Beautiful Home and Local Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family! Spring Break early!. We couldnt have asked for a more peaceful and pretty home with easy access to the main road as well as hanging out in the property with WI FI, Cable TV and gourmet Kitchen and Temperpedic Master bed was awesome for me and my husband who are quite picky about beds. There were two rivers nearby one we walked to in 10 minutes, the other at the nearby ranger station in about a mile and a local town very cute with groceries and we took a yoga class too! The home had space inside and outside. Green rolling hills now in spring after much rain they had up here! we loved getting to Bass Lake and the rivers and waterfalls were bursting. Inside the home we had comfortable beds, simple but elegant layout of furnishings, so we could view outside from the dining area, kitchen and living room. My kids loved the extra bed in the living area so they could throw their back backs down and kick back and play board games or TV while we prepared food in a stainless steel gas, gourmet kitchen stove and oven, with serving glass counter and black gorgeous granite. Better than most cabins as it had all wood floors, nice mats (no dusty or old carpets) stone and slate and granite abound. We would love to have a cabin to come to every year and instead of having to own we can come enjoy this location. We would like to come back in summer or september to try out all the boating on Bass Lake nearby which is really going to be amazing being more full and a new dam. We used to stay on the other side but this has the lake access and park in only 1/2 an hour, however we like going east on 225 to some local fishing and off the beaten path at Redinger lake. The owner and caretakers are very friendly and helpful at instructions for the house and things to do nearby.

I am surprised at anything but a great rating for the deal this beautiful home is, much more than a cabin! a loving home that is being shared with us. We know what it takes we used to have a cabin in Tahoe, but now having sold it find it such a blessing to rent other owners gems.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an amazing time. The house was perfectly set up for way more people than my wife and me. Very comfortable bed, and an amazing kitchen. We definitely never wanted to leave. Definitely recommend this house for any kind of family vacation.

Good location for family fun

  • 3 of 5

House was pretty well equipped, but needs some maintenance.

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2017
  • Stayed: Feb 2017
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: This review was only given a three star rating with vague innuendos about lacking maintenance. No suggestions or details were communicated with us regarding anything that may have made their stay "Three Star Worthy". We will be rating this guest along the same curve. The house was left in a mess, dishes left undone, cereal and food spilled on the carpet under the dining room table, empty beer cans thrown along the side of the house and trash left behind. On top of this, they had left a selection of DVD/Blu-Ray discs behind and expect us to continue to provide a higher quality of service than we were rated at. I believe that these tenants don't have a clue how the rating system works on any of the websites that provide services to the guests as well as the owners. A poor review shows up in our listing. We do not feel that this review's three star rating was neither fair nor well thought out for the reasons listed in their initial review. This can affect future bookings for us. Are review will reflect, fairly, the reasons for a low rating as has been listed above.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. Great location; a short drive to town and a short drive to the snow. Bed weren't too comfortable and the floors were a little dirty, but other than that it was a great stay. We are already planning to return in the summer.

Cozy vacation rental and beautiful secluded location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property in North Fork! The house had everything we needed! Beautiful fully equipped kitchen that we did a lot of cooking in. The beds were very comfortable and everything was neat and clean when we arrived. I can't wait to go back, it was the perfect distance from a snow park we visited just past oakhurst and the kids had a blast! We are from Fresno, so it was a quick hop, skip, and a jump away to a nice mountain retreat. Definitely recommend!

Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this location between Christmas and New years. The home is well equipped and comfortable. Very clean. We had 5 adults and 1 child with our 2 dogs. Being able to include the dogs was a real treat, and much appreciated. Nice drive to Yosemite where we were able to play in the snow. My only complaint is that our movie night was a bust as the DVD player started skipping 20 min into the movie. It was a brand new movie, so don't think that was the problem. I recommend this location, especially for families with dogs.
