Located less than 1.5 miles from the Bass lake dam and boat launch, and at approximately 3,500 feet, this tidy 1,500 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath manufactured home on over an acre of wooded land offers the guest a quiet and secluded mountain view location, yet is two minutes from Bass Lake, 5 minutes to the town of North Fork, approximately 20 minutes to Oakhurst, and about 35 minutes to the Yosemite National Park Entrance.
This is the lowest priced rental in the area and offers excellent privacy compared to any nearby hotel. There is a creek and small lake (Manazanita Lake) less than 5 minutes away, and the air quality is great, with deep blue skies most of the time. The home is located in a 'no hunting' zone. Comes with all appliances, including washer/dryer. Has TV/VCR/DVD. No cable internet service (cell phone internet service works). We have never found this to be a detriment, as this is an outdoors paradise, and most people enjoy getting away from the busy life here. Good cell phone service.
This home is ideal for for couples or a small family (up to 5 people, no exceptions). It features a full length deck with terrific views. Ideal location for winter relaxation or summer recreation, and offers boating, kayaking, mountain biking and motorcycle riding within minutes. Occasional deer and wild turkey sightings on property. Keep in mind, this is a manaufactured or 'mobile' home, which makes no difference to most people given the spacious layout, large deck, ammenities, and beautiful surroundings. See photobucket link below for additional photographs.
To me, this property is in an ideal location. It is likely the least expensive place at/near Bass Lake. it is 1.3 miles from the Bass Lake dam and boat launch. It is near restaurants (Millers Landing, the Forks, North Fork restaurants) and is 20 minutes from Oakhurst for big city conveniences, yet is tucked in a quiet culdesac with few neighbors, but in an area with other homes. It backs to Forest service land and has great views. If you are familiar with Bass Lake, this is the quieter side of the lake....more space, homes not packed in next to each other, no loud parties, etc.
This is a 1970's era mobile home. The inside is spacious and nicer than the outside appearance. It is in a wooded neighborhood setting. From the deck you see the wooded, sloping 5 acres that it sits on. You also see pieces of about 4 other houses, and can sometimes hear their dogs bark (not a lot). There is a house right next door, but the way the houses are situated, you really can only see it from the deck, off to the side. It is a peaceful setting, but not completely private. There is a small yard just off the deck that is almost completely fenced in. Using pieces of wood and chicken wire that were stacked near the shed and an x-pen from home, I was able to rig up a secure yard for my small dogs and secure the deck, so they had some freedom. We were unable to use the deck in the evening due to mosquitoes (wooded setting). It was nice in the morning, though.
There are 2 bedrooms, one king bed, one queen bed, and a double bed in the family room area. There is lots of closet space, but about 4 hangers in the whole house. Stop at the Dollar Store in town on your way in and buy some hangers. TV in the living room, but no cable or wifi. There is a stash of movies. Think of it as a rustic cabin. You are not paying for a 4 star hotel here. The master bathroom door did not shut, but I found a stool to block it closed.
Our GPS kept wanting to route us in long, nonsensical routes. I was wishing for some real, old-fashioned paper maps of the area. I found some touristy maps, but no real good ones. I would suggest obtaining a Rand-McNally type map of the area before coming. I saw some reviews mentioning the driveway being difficult to maneuver - you have to do some backing up, but we had no trouble.
I think it took about 1 1/2 hours to get to Yosemite. I am writing this review a few months late, so I don't remember exactly. It is a pleasant drive. We drove along the lake to get to the highway.
The owner was responsive, honest, and easy to deal with. Deposit was credited very promptly.
Very nice. Not the cutest decor but it was fine. Had all the amenities we needed. Love the enclosed patio and Lil yard for the dogs. Short drive to the lake. Great time!!! Don't depend on GPS once you get into neighborhood. Makes you turn 1 street too early.
Clean and spacious
We chose to stay here because of the reviews
These good reviews are earned. You could see a lot of effort in the cleanliness of the property
My wife had left her earrings behind there they took the time to mail them back to us
We made the right choice staying here
We stayed in the house to visit the Yosemite National Park and other neighboring regions. The house is located inside a small neighborhood by the shore of the Bass Lake (frequently visited by the locals). The drive along the lake is winding and beautiful through the woods. However, daily commute to the Yosemite National Park is very long (it took 2 hours each way to reach the Yosemite Valley, headquarter of the park), driving through long-winding mountain roads. If you plan to spend most of the time in the national park, it will be wise to stay inside the park or by the park entrance. If you absolutely have to drive to the park, try the west entrance of the park through Mariposa and El Portal, the drive will be less winding, and more flat and pleasant along the Merced River. The house is very large and comfortable inside, but does not have wifi and very limited cell service (no t-mobile). We visited the nearby Miller's Landing Resort to get food and wifi. Because of the location of the house, we got chance to visit adjacent places: Bass Lake, Nelder Sequoia Groove, Fossil Discovery Center. Nelder Sequoia Groove has excellent demonstration of giant sequoia, the history and nature science behind it, and the California tree logging stories.
Great little place to get away with the family and explore Yosemite and Bass Lake. We had my hubby and I, my son and his friend, and our two dogs. There was plenty of room for everybody to hang out and relax in between hiking and fishing. Very clean cabin, and the deposit was promptly returned - the day after we left!
We arrived late around 8 PM and found some deers wandering the path way. It was a little difficult to find the way. You have to go up Shriners lane past the second house and take the path that goes up, then make a sharp left turn. There is no cellphone service. Fortunately there was an old lady in the first house who was kind enough to let us use her landline to call Jeff for directions and key code. Don't forget the key code. Property was pretty huge and a patio that extends to the length of the house. House was very clean and had all the required amenities. The bathroom door knob wouldn't close and utensils were pretty old. It would be nice to get newer utensils. Close proximity to bass lake and takes about 40 minutes to the south entrance of Yosemite. Overall a nice place to wind down away from city life.
