About Kelly Barreto
Our family includes myself and my husband, as well as our three children. We love to camp, garden, swim, hike and vacation. We also enjoy music and photography. My husband is in the fire service and I am a flight attendant. We live on the Central Coast of California. We are involved with our children's activities and their schools making it hard to enjoy our cabin and the mountains as often as we would like. We enjoy sharing our cabin with others and knowing they will enjoy the wonderful experiences that the area offers.
Kelly Barreto purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Kelly Barreto chose Oakhurst
After 10 years of visiting the Oakhurst/Bass Lake area we decided to purchase a second home there. We had dreamed of buying in the area for several years and often visited properties during our vacations. We purchased the cabin in 2004, but rented it to a full time tenant almost immediatly. We had several tenants over the years and didn't consider using it as a vacation home until February of 2009. We stocked the home with all of the comforts that other rentals we had stayed in offered. We also chose to decorate the cabin with items from the fire service, as we enjoyed the idea of sharing the toys/decor that we have collected over the years. The location of the cabin is perfect for our needs. It is in a wooded residential neighborhood, offering the feeling of being in the mountains, but not feeling isolated. The drive into Yosemite is a short and scenic drive. The quaint town of Oakhurst offers all of the amenities that we need. From a movie theater to grocery stores. But our favorite is Bass Lake! We love the warm water and incredible views of the tree lined shores and scenic mountain backgrounds.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin offers a wonderful central location. Some of the areas and activities that we have enjoyed while in the area include: Historic Yosemite Flats Park, trail rides on horse back, the historic Sierra Skyranch Inn (They offer some interesting ghost sighting stories and have been featured on several TV shows lately). We also have enjoyed a little gambling at Chuckcansi Casino in Coarsegold. A drive down historic Hwy 49 an hour or so are some of the historic gold country towns that we have enjoy visiting that include: Mariposa and (my kids favorite) Columbia. We have heard from several of our past renters that the central location for perfect for their visit to the area. We are thrilled they agree!

Loved our stay at the cosy fire escape cabin
Really enjoyed the cabin good location, clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Close to Bass lake and one hour away from Yosemite south entrance, the drive to this is beautiful.
We absolutely loved the location and decor of the Fire Escape Cabin! We were able to do all our grocery shopping at the local Vons and we were close by to Yosemite’s south entrance and also Bass Lake.
The only issue we encountered were the amount of spider webs and the dusty furniture but that could easily be fixed. Overall, this cabin is fully stocked and an absolute must if visiting Yosemite. The Barreto family has thought of everything! The welcome binder has helpful information and having access to WiFi is great especially when traveling with children.
Thank again Barreto family for making our first Yosemite trip easier.
The cabin was very cozy and well equipped. Location was great and in a quite neighborhood. We saw a deer in the back yard and at the neighbors house several times.
Great base for Yosemite
We only had two days for the last stop on our California Road trip. This property was great for our family of 6.
June in Yosemite
We had a wonderful stay at the Fire Escape cabin! We spent three amazing days in the park. We also enjoyed relaxing each night on the deck! The cabin is really cool and our daughter had fun checking out the toys!
Adorable, clean cabin. Just the right amount of space for our family of five. Able to make our own meals and prepare for our hikes in Yosemite. About as close to the south entrance to the park without being in the park.
Only 12 miles from the Southern entrance to Yosemite. There are many enjoyable activities in the area. This cabin is in a central location, making it perfect for enjoying Sierra Mountains. Only 5 minutes to Oakhurst, and less than 5 minutes to Bass Lake.
