Bass Lake house description

Welcome to our lake home! This has been our year-round retreat getaway for nearly 30 years. Legend has it that when our dad walked by and saw the lake view from this home, he offered cash on the spot. The rest is history.

Our home is located in the coveted Willow Cove area and is walking distance to the Pines Village where you will find three restaurants, a full service grocery, deli, bakery/pizza, a souvenir shop and a surf shop.

Our lovely home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen and a Great Room on one level, and an 'in-law' type bedroom downstairs with a separate entrance and full bathroom. The interior of our home is adorned with notty pine and is decorated very homey with touches of family and Bass Lake history. Our front yard boasts one of the only grass lawns in the area and is great for children and outdoor games. Saving the best for last, we have a large deck that features breathtaking year round view of the lake for BBQing and outdoor dining.

All bedrooms are supplied with comforters, blankets and pillows. For an additional one-time fee of $150 we can provide bed linens & bath towels for your vacation getaway.

There is not a boat slip or access to a pier for the rental, however you can easily rent one through the Pines Marina for an additional cost. The Pines Marina is a short walk from our home (less than 1/4 mile). We can supply you with their number if you are interested.

On the lake itself there are three marinas open in the summer, The Pines, Miller's Landing and The Forks. Each have gasoline, dining outlets, boat rentals (fishing, ski & patio) & jet skis for rent.

You can also plan a day trip to Yosemite Valley (1 hour drive) to see the famed granite walls of El Capitan and Half Dome, along with the breathtaking waterfalls, Yosemite, Bridalveil, Vernal and Nevada (spring & summer months are best for water flow). If you get an early start you can trek Half Dome for an experience and view of a lifetime. It is a tough hike at 16 miles round trip and 5,000 foot elevation gain, but worth every potential blister.

Whether you are planning for a quiet Winter get-away, or an active Summer vacation, Bass Lake will not disappoint. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors. Build memories that will last a lifetime and start a new tradition....vacations at Bass Lake.

                  Enjoying the great views of Bass Lake from this vacation home in Yosemite area 10/14/2010

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:


                  “Brrr!” was my first thought when I walked in. The owner came to our rescue! She was so helpful; she stopped by and showed us how to turn on the electric fireplace and heater. The house warmed up quickly and soon felt like home. I slept like a bear cub in hibernation! The next morning I found games and puzzles and ample room for entertaining.

                  The view of Bass Lake from the deck was spectacular! There’s nothing like early mornings on Bass Lake! The view of the lake when the sun peeks over the mountains and begins to shine through the trees and causes a morning mist to move across the lake is a sight to behold! It is like a slice of heaven!

                  Some friends raved about the hamburgers at the Forks Resort Restaurants. They lived up to their reputation – the hamburgers were awesome! While I didn’t take time to visit the Yosemite Valley, I thoroughly enjoyed browsing around Bass Lake and Oakhurst. The neighbors are so friendly!

                  I had breakfast at Pete’s Place in Oakhurst before heading home. I highly recommend a trip to Bass Lake for a beautiful fall vacation or plan to getaway just about any time of year to enjoy this vacation rental.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1982

                  About the owner: Ask any home owner in the area and they are most likely familiar with our dad, Jim Ackroyd. Our dad served as the Administrator to the Homeowner's Association during the time when homeowners came together and purchased the leased land from PG&E. No small feat and our dad played an integral role in the process. We are very proud. Our dad passed away September 2004 from cancer. We are telling you this not to make you sad but to invite you to truly enjoy what this lake and home have to offer. Our father lived life to the fullest and this home was a conduit to his favorite activities - BBQ's, boating and reading the paper on the deck.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  While staying at our home you'll enjoy the warmth and comfort of a family home. Many rentals are sterile, loosely stocked with items and give no sense of who owns it. Our home is the opposite, it's fully stocked for entertaining (food gatherings are our favorite), well maintained and emulates a warm family experience. You are invited to enjoy it to the fullest.
