Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Welcome to our lake home! This has been our year-round retreat getaway for nearly 30 years. Legend has it that when our dad walked by and saw the lake view from this home, he offered cash on the spot. The rest is history.

Our home is located in the coveted Willow Cove area and is walking distance to the Pines Village where you will find three restaurants, a full service grocery, deli, bakery/pizza, a souvenir shop and a surf shop.

Our lovely home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen and a Great Room on one level, and an 'in-law' type bedroom downstairs with a separate entrance and full bathroom. The interior of our home is adorned with notty pine and is decorated very homey with touches of family and Bass Lake history. Our front yard boasts one of the only grass lawns in the area and is great for children and outdoor games. Saving the best for last, we have a large deck that features breathtaking year round view of the lake for BBQing and outdoor dining.

All bedrooms are supplied with comforters, blankets and pillows. Guests are required to bring linens.

There is not a boat slip or access to a pier for the rental, however you can easily rent one through the Pines Marina for an additional cost. The Pines Marina is a short walk from our home (less than 1/4 mile). We can supply you with their number if you are interested.

On the lake itself there are three marinas open in the summer, The Pines, Miller's Landing and The Forks. Each have gasoline, dining outlets, boat rentals (fishing, ski & patio) & jet skis for rent.

You can also plan a day trip to Yosemite Valley (1 hour drive) to see the famed granite walls of El Capitan and Half Dome, along with the breathtaking waterfalls, Yosemite, Bridalveil, Vernal and Nevada (spring & summer months are best for water flow). If you get an early start you can trek Half Dome for an experience and view of a lifetime. It is a tough hike at 16 miles round trip and 5,000 foot elevation gain, but worth every potential blister.

Whether you are planning for a quiet Winter get-away, or an active Summer vacation, Bass Lake will not disappoint. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors. Build memories that will last a lifetime and start a new tradition....vacations at Bass Lake.

About Heather

Ask any home owner in the area and they are most likely familiar with our dad, Jim Ackroyd. Our dad served as the Administrator to the Homeowner's Association during the time when homeowners came together and purchased the leased land from PG&E. No small feat and our dad played an integral role in the process. We are very proud.

Our dad passed away September 2004 from cancer. We are telling you this not to make you sad but to invite you to truly enjoy what this lake and home have to offer. Our father lived life to the fullest and this home was a conduit to his favorite activities - BBQ's, boating and reading the paper on the deck.

Heather purchased this house in 1982

What makes this house unique

While staying at our home you'll enjoy the warmth and comfort of a family home. Many rentals are sterile, loosely stocked with items and give no sense of who owns it. Our home is the opposite, it's fully stocked for entertaining (food gatherings are our favorite), well maintained and emulates a warm family experience. You are invited to enjoy it to the fullest.

Perfect Bass Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed! I loved the location in Willow Cove as it is close to the Pines. I just wish it had a boat dock, but other relatives in the area had a dock close by that we were able to use. I would totally rent this house again!

Our favorite house on Bass Lake!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming here for over 30 years and each time it is a new experience. Great times hiking at The Falls and Devils Slide. Take plenty of water on this hike. Good times on the lake as usual. Willowcove was a little quiet this 4th. Love Bass Lake!

Best place we have stayed!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Bass Lake since 1964 well before I was born. We started out as campers across the lake. Then Ducess cabins until the fire. We started renting houses. This house was very relaxing and beautiful. Spent majority of time on deck chatting and enjoying the beauty of Bass Lake. Didn't watch TV for 5 days and WIFI was very fast. Very great property for the price. Pier 12 is off limits and I saw zero people on it so not sure why so protected. Love Bass Lake and loved this house. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephen. You are welcome to come back anytime. Make this your home for your week at Bass Lake. You are great tenants. Glad you enjoyed the deck. We love our lake view. Pier 12 is a private pier and we have bylaws that prohibit use by renters. We have to respect the privacy and property of the families that have slips on the pier. Thank you again and we will see you soon. Heather Ackroyd

Excellent place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of friends who spent the new year and a couple of nights at Bass Lake at this amazing place!! The house was beautiful on the inside, with a true lodge feeling. Heather was amazing and she was super helpful with suggestions and tips. She even returned my call about a qn at 10pm on the 31st night!!! The entire group had a great time and were very comfortable for the two nights we were there. The location is great as Bass Lake is right there, with some amazing hikes and about 30 mins to the entrance of Yosemite (depending on traffic). Highly recommend!!

Bass Lake Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this property on more than one occasion. The owner bends over backwards to accommodate and tries to make sure all of your needs are met. The location is unbeatable; you can walk to the village easily and just down the street is access to the water near the sheriff's tower. The deck is huge and can seat a ton of people and the view from the deck is amazing because you can see far down the lake! The house has been in the owner's family for many years and the personal touches throughout make it feel homey. It is very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen is extremely well-stocked and has two refrigerators. Updates were made to a lot of the furnishings this year and give it a modern feel. This is a fantastic house for large gatherings because there is enough space for everyone to spread out. I plan on returning to the house many times in the years to come. It is my Bass Lake home away from home.
