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!

Amazing Rental...Pictures Don't Do It Justice...

  • 5 of 5

First off, Mark was wonderful from the day I booked his home to the day we left and beyond. His home is beautiful & was absolutely perfect for our stay (pictures definitely don't do it justice). The home is clean and well maintained with ample space. We especially enjoyed the game room. We had a slight mishap during our stay with space heaters & the breakers, but Mark was extremely helpful and called right away to help fix the problem and make sure it was taken care of. Would absolutely stay here again! Thanks so much!

Great stay but huge issue

  • 3 of 5

We rented this property October 6-10th. We had a wonderful stay but we had a major issue. First the positives, great location and clean. The porch is surrounded by trees and has a small charcoal grill and a table with a fire pit that we enjoyed very much. House is in walking distance to the lake and Pines Resort, and is about a 30 minute drive to Yosemite entrance. We were there for the half marathon and the shuttle pickup was very close.

There is a separate living area that has a bedroom, kitchenette, and a bathroom. It does not have central heating or air conditioning but there are a couple of electric heaters. The second night we were there the downstairs bathroom flooded with raw sewage that overflowed from the toilet onto the floor, flowed into the carpet, and almost filled the bathtub. It even shot out of the kitchenette sink all over the countertop and floor. This was after someone showered and luckily heard the toilet bubbling and was able to get out before being contaminated.

We ended up all staying upstairs in 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom which was not horrible since there were only 6 of us. The owner, Mark, did refund a portion of the rent but I was more concerned about the cleanup. No one ever came out to start the cleanup process so the downstairs remained with sewage for a minimum of 3 days. I truly hope a professional service was used and the carpet was replaced because this was not a job for a maid.

Owner's Response: What happened in the bathroom downstairs was most unfortunate.This was a Madera County plumbing issue. It has since been resolved as the drain at the street was plugged up. I refunded $350.00 plus the deposit $600.00 total. I did try to get someone up there that day and the next without success. I would have come myself but had just had surgery (bad timing) and my wife was working a 12 hr shift. The room in question was a separate room downstairs so their wasn't any health danger. As I mentioned Madera County did fix the issue and I had it professionally cleaned. The bathroom was out of commission for two days. I'm again very sorry for your experience.

Great location. Enjoyed our stay.

It was a wonderful spot for our family vacation. We all had a great time and the pool table is definitely a plus! Mark, the owner, was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with!

Peaceful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Mark Carlson for the hospitality of his lovely home in the pines. For five nights we stayed at the Carlson home for my daughter's wedding at Bass Lake. The house is nicely decorated with comfortable beds, furniture and new appliances. The separate downstairs apartment was very accommodating for my son and his family. The deck was a favorite of ours and we especially liked the privacy. The surrounding homes are all set back far enough to make it feel like we were far away from it all. We are looking forward to a future trip to the area where we can stay in the house again.

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.
