About Tom Chedester

The home has been in our family since 1947. It started out as a small cabin and was remodeled in 1996 to accommodate our growing family. We have two grown sons and six grandchildren. We both grew up in the San Joaquin valley and have been involved in Farming and Real Estate. We are now retired and living in Palm Desert, Ca.. We spend our summers at Bass Lake and traveling.

Tom Chedester purchased this house in 1947

Why Tom Chedester chose Wishon

My wife's father built the home so he could spend his summers with his family enjoying the lake activities and the surrounding mountain area.

What makes this house unique

We love to go out in our boat, stop in a quiet cove and play cards or just relax, listen to music and enjoy a happy hour. When our grandchildren visit we spend hours with them tubing and skiing and then have a relaxing dinner outside while the sun sets. The summer evenings and sunsets are beautiful.

This place is so great!!! The location is perfect, the views are outstanding!!! Easy access to the beach makes this house close to lakefront. The home is so warm and welcoming. We enjoyed coffee on the porch overlooking the lake each morning, and cocktails in the evening:) I would strongly recommend this lakehouse to any family. We will be back next year for sure!!!

Bass Lake Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our children & grandchildren! The home is perfect for a family vacation; it is everything it's decribed to be & more! The private beach and boat dock are a real bonus; we had so much fun swimming, tubing & boating, . The lake is magnificent & the unobstructed view is stunning. It is even nicer than the photos portray! We enjoyed the upstairs porch with its ample seating & the outside BBQ and covered seating area with more than enough room for everyone to sit down together! There are so many nearby attractions and activities & restaruants! We enjoyed the train ride at Sugar Pine railroad and panning for gold. I would heartily recommend this property!
