Property description

Located just minutes from the Historic Sierra National Scenic Byway. Offering easy access to historic sites, hiking, mountain biking, off-road vehicle trails/roads, fishing, and swimming in Bass Lake (just 10 minutes away). Also conveniently located within minutes is the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park, the quaint town of Oakhurst, a local snow park, Badger Pass Ski Resort, the historic Sugar Pine Railroad and much more.

The 'Fire Escape' cabin earned its name because of the vacation 'escape' that it offers the fire-fighter-owner and family. The interior decor includes fun fire service accents, making the visit fun, comfortable and unique.

From the front or back decks you are surrounded with Ponderosa Pines, Cedar, Manzanita and Oak trees. Families of deer often pass through the properties, offering a true mountain feel.

This affodable mountain cabin is in a central location, making it perfect for enjoying Sierra Mountains.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Our family includes myself and my husband, as well as our three children. We love to camp, garden, swim, hike and vacation. We also enjoy music and photography. My husband is in the fire service and I coordinate events. We live on the Central Coast of California. We are involved with our children's activities and their schools making it hard to enjoy our cabin and the mountains as often as we would like. We enjoy sharing our cabin with others and knowing they will enjoy the wonderful experiences that the area offers.

Why the Owner Chose Oakhurst:
After 10 years of visiting the Oakhurst/Bass Lake area we decided to purchase a second home there. We had dreamed of buying in the area for several years and often visited properties during our vacations. We purchased the cabin in 2004, but rented it to a full time tenant almost immediatly. We had several tenants over the years and didn't consider using it as a vacation home until February of 2009. We stocked the home with all of the comforts that other rentals we had stayed in offered. We also chose to decorate the cabin with items from the fire service, as we enjoyed the idea of sharing the toys/decor that we have collected over the years. The location of the cabin is perfect for our needs. It is in a wooded residential neighborhood, offering the feeling of being in the mountains, but not feeling isolated. The drive into Yosemite is a short and scenic drive. The quaint town of Oakhurst offers all of the amenities that we need. From a movie theater to grocery stores. But our favorite is Bass Lake! We love the warm water and incredible views of the tree lined shores and scenic mountain backgrounds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin offers a wonderful central location. Some of the areas and activities that we have enjoyed while in the area include: Historic Yosemite Flats Park, trail rides on horse back, the historic Sierra Skyranch Inn (They offer some interesting ghost sighting stories and have been featured on several TV shows lately). We also have enjoyed a little gambling at Chuckcansi Casino in Coarsegold. A drive down historic Hwy 49 an hour or so are some of the historic gold country towns that we have enjoy visiting that include: Mariposa and (my kids favorite) Colombia. We have heard from several of our past renters that the central location for perfect for their visit to the area. We are thrilled they agree!
