Yosemite Area House Rental Photos and Description

4 beds And two baths, beautiful deck, all the amenities you need.

Our house is a place to come and rest. It is walking distance to Ducey's on the Lake Resort, and the lake is full! Also a short walk to Pines Village, Pines Marina, and only a 15 minute drive to Oakhurst. Yosemite and Badger Pass ski resort are less than an hour away. It sleeps 6-8 with two queen beds, one king and two bathrooms. There is a loft for the kids with a twin and an airbed as well. Enjoy our beautiful sitting area and dining table on our spacious deck amongst the trees where you can enjoy your meals, read, or bird watch. We also have a kitchenette downstairs where a young family can have a little privacy.

We have decorated for beauty but mostly for your comfort and enjoyment. We also have a flat screen TV and WIFI and a new pool table down in the game-room!!

The lake will be full this summer!

About Mark Carlson

This house was our Dad's primary residence until his passing in 2008. My brother and I decided to remodel it and make it more up to date for our vacation renters. We have put a lot of love and care into this place so you may find rest from your busy lives while you are here.

Mark Carlson purchased this house in 1982

Why Mark Carlson chose Yosemite Area

This property has been passed down from my father who loved the mountains...especially Bass Lake. The summer is a great time to rent but the Spring and Fall are even better! If you are looking to wind down from your busy life this is the place to be!

What makes this house unique

Our home is in a very quiet little corner where virtually no cars drive by for days. Deer and raccoons frequently visit us. The sound of birds chirping in the morning will be the only thing you will hear. Come in the Summer, Spring, or Fall for complete quiet and refreshing!

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We would rate our overall experience staying at this Bass Lake property as excellent. We've stayed at 6 different VRBO properties, and this one is our favorite so far. The owner is very nice, and quickly responds to all queries. The house is fully equipped with everything needed for a pleasant stay - nice linens, plenty of dishes and cooking utensils, updated appliances, comfortable and attractive furnishings - and most important to us, it's clean and well maintained. The deck, where we spent a great deal of our time, is spacious and welcoming, and the lower level of the house has a beautiful new pool table. The only complaints we have is that the mattresses could be softer, but some people like firm mattresses, so that's probably not a fair complaint. And, we wish there was a TV in the pool room. It would have been fun to watch a ball game while playing pool. But overall, we give this place top rating and we would definitely love to stay there again.

Excellent family vacation cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was much larger than expected. My brother, his wife and their two kids (2 and 3) stayed in the upstairs portion of the cabin along with our mom. My fiancé and I stayed in the downstairs portion of the cabin which was separated from the game room where my youngest brother stayed. It was nice because the lower rooms were somewhat separated and the kids didn't wake us up at 6:30am every morning. We loved the upstairs deck and spent nearly all our communal time outside. We ate every meal on the deck and made s'mores with kids at night while looking up at the starts. The deck chairs were comfortable and the deck was spacious enough for all 8 of us. The lake was a short walk from the cabin, even for the kids. We drove into Yosemite one day and spent another day on a rental boat cruising around Bass Lake. The kitchen was somewhat small and cramped and the sliding glass door to the lower room was very tough to slide but other than that we loved the place.

Our May Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house near the lake....walking distance to Ducey's and the Pines Resort...quiet street... We loved the deck for our morning coffee and evening cocktails...plenty of parking ... We were able to park our 1941 Chris Craft in the driveway ... Though you should be experienced in backing up...

Overall, we were so happy to have found this jewel... Communication was excellent...

Thank you Mark and family!!!

Winter Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Since summer was filled with sports activities for the kids in St.Louis but their dad wanted them to see Yosemite, we scheduled a winter trip. Yosemite was spectacular decorated with snow and throwing snowballs was great entertainment amidst the beauty. Thankfully the young men took the job of installing and removing chains on the van which was really necessary.

This home was a great retreat at the end of the day. It handled our three generations quite adequately and comfortably. We had a fire in the fireplace, slept well and cooked hearty meals from the kitchen. The heat had been turned on before we arrived but It took a while to heat every corner of the house. This is understandable with freezing temperatures outside and the house not always in use. I would recommend this vacation home even in winter.

Relaxing Reunion under the Pines

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family while we attended a wedding at the Pines Resort as the house was within easy walking distance to the Pines. The outdoor deck is amazing! The weather was beautiful and we spent most of our free time relaxing on the deck under the shade of the pine trees. The house and the lower unit had plenty of space for our family. The beds and decor were nice. The loft is a true loft with a ladder and a railing. I would recommend this space for teens or older. The owner is quite responsive and easy to work with.

central coast travelers

  • 4 of 5

We have been spending our summer vacations in Bass Lake for many years. And every year we rent a house in The Pines Village area for a week. We really enjoyed this house. The location was private and beautiful, the house was large and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The deck was where we spent most of our time it was so nice to sit outside in the evenings and watch the sun setting. We will definitely rent this house again.
