If you're looking for an unforgettable vacation experience, a trip to Yosemite National Park fits the bill. Perfect for families, retreats, family reunions or vacations, The Greenwood Lakehouse is designed for relaxation, comfort and convenience.
Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.
Planning your vacation at The Greenwood Lakehouse provides travelers with a comfortable, cozy setting. Plan easy day trips to Yosemite to hike, climb Half Dome, picnic & explore. In the evening, retreat back to your home away from home and roast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit, dine & explore the Pines Village or simply dangle your feet in the cool water of Bass Lake off our private dock area. Whatever you choose to do, the memories will last a lifetime.
This two-story log sided cabin is nestled between the pines, cedars, and oaks in the beautiful Sierra National Forest, just 15 minutes to the entrance of Yosemite National Park. The rustic log look on the outside is reflected on the inside with the rock fire place, log sided game room and curious wood parquet ceiling in the den that is original to the cabin's 1940's construction. Other updates have been made with an effort to maintain its original feel of a warm and cozy mountain cabin.
Bass Lake is located at the Southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. Our 3500 Foot elevation keeps the temperatures about ten degrees cooler than the Central Valley. Summer time brings lake temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees and Winter time boasts enough snow for local snowmobiling (15 minutes away) or the sledding in the surrounding areas.
Our Cabin is located in the Pines Village by Bass Lake. Within a half mile, you will find the conveniences of three restaurants, full service grocery store including a deli, two souvenir shops, a clothing boutique, art gallery and home décor/antique store. Lake side you will discover Jazz on the Lake Friday nights (Summer only) and the marina for all of your lake excursion needs from boat rentals, water skis, jet skis, and wake boards, to fishing boats and fish bait.
Not far from our private heaven is the tourist town of Oakhurst (15 minutes) which has fine dining, shops and theatres. Thirty minutes from Bass Lake is the New Chukchansi Gold Casino. The entrance to Yosemite is only 20 minutes away with Mariposa Grove of Big Trees/Giant Sequoias just inside the gate. Plan a day trip to Yosemite Valley, or get an early start and trek Half Dome. You will also find plenty to do in the Winter with ice skating at Curry Village and snow skiing/boarding at Badger Pass.
Whether you are planning for a Winter get-away, or a splashing time in the Summer, Bass Lake will not disappoint. Bring your family, your friends, and neighbors, this cabin will accommodate all. Build memories that will last a lifetime and start a new tradition, Vacations at Bass Lake.

Hi, We're the Greenwoods. We grew up here in the Oakhurst/Bass Lake area. Both graduated from Yosemite High School. We left the area, but returned to raise our 3 children here. We love the mountains and Bass Lake. It is a little slice of heaven for us. No matter what you want to do...it's here.
JULIE purchased this cabin in 2004
Bass Lake is AWESOME!!! Whether you are young or just young at heart there is so much to do here. Walk, swim, hike, the Market is close, there is bakery for your donut/cinnamon roll craving, boating, fishing, jetskiing, kayaking, floating, great restaurants and shops. It's all here. You can relax in the mountains without having to go camping and 'rough it'.
There are 2 floors, a front living/den area and a back game room, not to mention the front deck and back patio. You will not run out of areas to sit and relax, enjoy a quiet conversation, take a nap, eat a meal as a large group. This place accommodates all. Check out our newly updated kitchen and don't miss the game room!
Lots of family memories of this property in the 80's, really fun to reminisce and make new memories with granddaughters. Had a blast skiing on opening day at Badger Pass.
Firstly, let me acknowledge Julie's prompt support at every step. She is just an email away. This property is well appointed and has everything your family would need to enjoy a get away. We were a group of 12 and the space was more than ample for our needs. Kitchen is stocked with lot of utensils... Beds and baths are good and the game room is the best. The backyard is big with a lot of sitting area and barbecue and offers a great ambience to capture some great pictures.
A day trip to Yosemite is easy and the Bass Lake area around the house itself is beautiful and offers a lot of outdoor activities. The best part is the Pines market area is literally a 5 mins walk and has a grocery store to take care of your last min needs and the Pines bar is a great place to hangout. We will definitely return during spring/summer the next time. Thanks Julie.
This cabin was fantastic for our running team participating in the Yosemite Half Marathon. There were lots of beds, things to do ( pool table, games, TV and a great barbecue area out back ) and best of all a well equipped kitchen. Our team likes to prepare its own food and it was great to have a kitchen with update appliances and plenty of cooking equipment. If we run the half marathon again we sure hope to stay here again!
We very much enjoyed our stay at Julie's cabin in Bass Lake. The cabin worked well for four families with young kids. The cabin's close proximity to the lake, the store and boat rentals made for an easy and memorable weekend. Most of all, we appreciated the owner's hospitality. She made herself readily available to answer questions and assist with our needs while we stayed in the cabin. Additionally, she found some clothing that we left behind and shipped it home to us. We look forward to our next stay at this cabin!
This is a wonderful spot for a family vacation. Everyone young, to old enjoyed it. The big room with the pool table, and huge dining table was the place everyone gathered. Kitchen was fully stocked, and very nice. Also loved sitting out in the back at night, and even saw a meteor one night. Being from Minnesota, I appreciated that mosquitos were minimal so we could really enjoy being outdoors. All of the cousins loved the bunkroom, and overall was a comfortable, homey place to stay. My only suggestion is to upgrade mattresses on the sleeper sofas. We would all love to come back sometime. Thanks so much Julie.
The cabin was great. The only thing that I heard everyone complain about was the beds. Not comfortable. Very clean. great customer service. Would recommend property. At the beginning we would of appreciate a little more details as to what was provided. ect
Yosemite National Park is only 20 minutes away and offers activities for all age groups. Children can become Junior Rangers or Little Cubs and learn about Yosemite and the nature of it's evolution. Bike rides and group tours are available for riders of all ages, as are group tours.
Nearly 95 percent of Yosemite National Park is designated Wilderness. Wilderness is a special distinction granted by Congress protecting land from further development. The best way to experience the 1,100 square miles of the Yosemite Wilderness is to explore it first hand.
Yosemite has long been a haven for artists and photographers, and many artists have played a role--directly or indirectly--in the promotion and protection of Yosemite.
Art classes (donation requested) are offered spring through fall at the Yosemite Art Center in Yosemite Valley. Supplies can also be purchased there.
All people hiking to the top of Half Dome when the cables are up must have a permit. (The cables are usually up from the Friday before Memorial Day through Columbus Day, conditions permitting.)
There are also loads of things to enjoy in The Pines Village & Bass Lake. The Farmers Market (every Wednesday throughout the season) is open and hosts an abundance of fresh fruits, veggies and locally crafted items. See one of the most amazing fireworks show you've ever witnessed as the celebration lights up the skies over and waters of beautiful Bass Lake.
All in all, we are excited to share this beautiful & magical piece of the world with you!
