Thebunkhouse was perfect for us. We just needed a place to sleep because we weren't planning on staying there much with so much to do close by! Place was clean and very organized with just about everything you needed. Judy and Dan were very kind and helpful planning our activities. The location is about 1 5 hrs drive to trailheads and valley.
We enjoyed meeting Tricia and Michael, a delightful couple. They used the bunkhouse as we hoped folks would -- as a comfortable place to sleep after a long day of activities in Yosemite or other sites nearby. The bunkhouse was left in perfect condition. We couldn't have asked for finer guests, and highly recommend them to any future host. We welcome Michael and Tricia back anytime.
Great place, close to Yosemite!
My son and I decided to make a weekend of going to Yosemite and hitting some of the trails. I was so pleased to find Dan and Judy's Bunkhouse. It was affordable and conveniently located. That wasn't all though, the Larsens are great hosts, greeting us, even upon our late arrival, giving us tips, and even leaving us a snack of freshly baked delicious cookies. The bunkhouse itself was as described, modest, clean, spacious. It fit our needs perfectly and I hope to visit both Yosemite and the Larsens again very soon!
Carol & her son Matt were delightful guests, whom we hope we'll see again. They left the Bunkhouse in perfect condition. Couldn't have asked for better guests! And, we highly recommend them to any host they may contact in the future.
Yosemite National Park:
To experience Yosemite National Park and it's amazing scenery is totally breath-taking in all seasons. As we tell our friends, "It's where God lives." You don't want to miss it. Take Hwy. 41 North to the Park's Southern entrance, which is 20 miles (30 minutes) from our location. (Get a map on your way in.) The first attraction is the Mariposa Grove of Sequoia trees. From there, you can visit the Yosemite History Center, Glacier Point, Tunnel View of Yosemite Valley, then Bridal Veil Fall, El Capitan, Swinging Bridge, Sentinel Bridge (Half Dome), Yosemite Falls, and the Valley view. It's an all day trip you will be glad you took.
Lewis Creek Trailhead 1:
Enjoy scenic trails through the national forest by rivers and waterfalls, and a log bridge. The trail head is on Hwy. 41, about 12 miles from our place in Ahwahnee.
Bass Lake is about a 30 minute drive from the Bunkhouse. It's a good fishing, rowing, and power boat lake, with shops and rentals along the shores, both sides. If you make it to the lake, and like burgers, be sure to visit The Forks Resort, located at 39150 Rd 222, Bass Lake, CA 93604. It's a little rustic mountain diner & camping store, with great burgers! Has a nice variety of menu items, but we enjoy their burgers & malts whenever we go that direction. (The Forks is OPEN mid-April through mid-October.)
