Why the Owner Chose North Fork: : I chose this area over 20 years ago when I purchased the 7 acres the new home sits on. The area has not changed much in the last 20 years and I'm sure it hasn't changed much from many years prior to that. This area is truly like taking a step back in time. The towns motto is 'Above the fog, below the snow' although we usually get 5-7 inches of snow several times each winter, just perfect! The area truly has our four very distinct seasons, each one offering something new and wonderful...13 minutes to the Pines Resort at Bass Lake and less than an hour to Yosemite National Park. The start of the world famous 'Sierra Vista Scenic Byway' is less than 5 minutes away with numerous other sights and activity's to see and enjoy close by.
The Unique Benefits of this House:: This centrally located getaway is minutes from a well stocked neighborhood market and deli. There is a great Pizza Place just down the road in town with the local favorite Mexican Restaurant 'La Cabana' only minutes away. The Mono Indian Museum is on the outskirts of town and shouldn't be missed. The distant high country views from the home are as relaxing as they are magnificent.
Owner Description/Comments:: Come up and enjoy the lakes and the majestic scenery of Sierra's! I've been coming up enjoying the Yosemite/Bass Lake area for over 20 years to escape the hustle & bustle of the suburbs and city life. This area has much to offer in outdoor activities, with breathtaking vistas around every corner. You can stay as busy as you like or relax as much as you need, this area has it all!

Brief stay at Yosemite base
Clean, well equipped and beautiful location. Bob was an excellent host, making us feel welcome, providing extras like wine, a fire and netflix as well as detailed advice for visiting Yosemite, yet in no way intrusive.
Beautiful sky ever I've seen..
It was our 4years anniversary and also would like to have our first baby is coming this Agu. It was really cozy and confi and clean. Also we can enjoy our dinner outside of house.at night we can see beautiful sky and stars. I hope I'll bring my family one more time.
Comfortable studio, outstanding host!
My husband and I stayed four nights in Bob's cozy studio. When we arrived he was very attentive making sure we would be comfortable and sharing all that we needed to know about his property and the surrounding area. On the dining table was a large bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of wine which both were thoroughly enjoyed over our visit. There was breakfast food in the refrigerator and coffee which gave us a good start the next morning.
Our first night there was cool,so we got to use the gas fireplace which was a treat coming from Florida in August! Thereafter, we enjoyed several evenings sitting outside sipping wine and gazing out at the shadowy mountains in the moonlight.
Bob also provided a folder full of information about the area,and gave us tips on restaurants, surrounding towns, and our main objective visiting the Yosemite Natioanl Park. He was very helpful throughout our time there by providing us window cleaner/cloth to wash car windows one day, and on our last morning offered the use of his washer and dryer,
North Fork was a beautiful area and the Yosemite an outstanding wonder! Bob's studio was just a wonderful place to come back to each evening to relax and comtemplate each days trip. We look forward to coming back to this area some day, and we would definitely stay here again.
Thanks Bob for helping to make this part of a fantastic vacation in California!!
Perfect for visits to Yosemite
My wife and I stayed here for two nights and we both agree it was the perfect choice. Bob has put together a comfortable home away from home. It's easy to see his commitment to quality and attention to detail in the construction of this studio apartment.
Yosemite is a short, relaxing drive away making this the perfect base camp for visits to the park. Other attractions like Bass Lake are also nearby.
Bob is the perfect host--even though we had not met before this visit, we felt like we were staying with a long-time family friend.
I have no hesitation giving this retreat my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed!
Quiet Mountain Retreat
Very lovely, comfortable, and well kept. Visited Yosemite each day and it was a beautiful drive each morning to the park. If you like to start and end your day with a little peacefulness, this is a perfect place.
We can not say enough about this vacation rental. It was everything it was pictured to be and more. This rental was recommended to us and it definitely met our expectations. It was very clean and had all the amenities. We had everything we needed for a great vacation....Bob, the owner, had the loft stocked with all those little things you need but you don't want to bring/or you forget....like plastic wrap and sweeteners and more. We traveled to Yosemite each day about a 35 to 45 minute drive to the entrance. Each day we arrived home exhausted, so it was nice to have such a great place to sit outside and enjoy the view and relax. We definitely would like to come back for another stay and have some other site seeing on our list such as Bass Lake(which we found was very close!) and other places we found in the great info packet Bob had assembled.
