Relax and reconnect with your sweetheart! Stay in a restored, 1945, cottage that sits on 9 acres of forest. Sleep in a luxurious, king-size bed and wake to sounds of birds singing in a bubbling fountain. Sip coffee and view distant, granite peaks from a deck surrounded by flowering gardens. See deer and wild turkey stroll by. Spend your days exploring Yosemite & Bass Lake. Post pictures or stream movies with dedicated Wifi and Apple TV. Feel comfy with a new Fujitsu, HVAC unit. Sit on a moonlit deck while frogs serenade you. Share stories and plan tomorrow's adventures. Make life-long memories here. Here in my beloved, childhood home.
Cottage interior: This 800-square-foot cottage was hand-built in 1945 by the previous owner who worked at the North Fork Mill. My parents spent many years upgrading it. Interior walls were removed so the sleeping area, sitting area, and kitchenette are in one, large open space. French doors open to a small deck with Woodard patio furniture. It feels especially cozy on winter nights when the woods fill with snow. There is a newly, installed Fujitsu unit that provides heating and air-conditioning, so you'll feel comfortable. Kitchenette has a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster oven. It is designed to prepare light meals only --like you would in a hotel suite. I love the box windows and polished, copper sink from Mexico. A carved, teak armoire houses the Apple TV and Blu-Ray, DVD player. There are all kinds of small touches that make this feel like a place that is well-cared for and loved. The king-size bed is very supportive and has nice linens. The second room in the cottage is large. It contains a full-size bed, laundry area, and bathroom. The bathroom is unusual as the shower is small and the toilet sits in a large closet --think of an indoor, outhouse, in light, yellow paint :-)! Both are super tidy as the toilet is new and the shower is freshly tiled.
Interaction with Guests: I sincerely wish I could greet you and thank you for choosing my family home for your trip. I could never keep this place without your kindness and support. However, I live in Southern California, so my onsite hosts (who live 1/4 mile away) are available if you need anything!
Forest Setting: Nine-acre property backs to open forest and has no neighbors. Cottage feels secluded and is located with another, larger cabin. That larger cabin may be rented by another guest during your stay. You are looking at the cottage.
Location: The cottage is one mile from the Bass Lake Boat Launch; 1.5 miles from Miller's Landing Resort; and 23 miles from the entrance to Yosemite National Park and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.
