Bass Lake farmhouse description

Our newly renovated 1890's vintage ranch cabin has all new modern appliances and comforts and is opening for the first time this Spring for visitors. From our location you can be swimming in Bass Lake in 10 minutes, get to the South Gate of Yosemite in 35 minutes, or drive the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway and have all the treasures of the Sierra National Forest at your feet. In the evening you can sit back and relax, barbecue, and enjoy the sweeping views from your own private garden. You are guaranteed great bird watching from our hummingbirds to Red Tail Hawks. After nightfall you might even enjoy being serenaded by the native coyotes!

              North Fork, a former logging community nestled in the middle of a vast pine and cedar forest is based at an elevation of 3,000 feet. North Fork has a large artist community, a farmers' market, and large Mono Indian population with several museums. The town itself is a quiet, quaint town that has one of the best Mexican restaurants you will ever enjoy. There is a grocery store, post office, coffee house, Pizza Factory and the authentic Buckhorn Saloon. Bass Lake is a 10 minute drive through the pines where you can lay on the beach, hike the trails, jet ski, dine at the local restaurants or rent a boat. Continue on another 25 miles and you will arrive at the South Gate of Yosemite National Park. You will be minutes away from the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia trees and the Wawona Hotel and golf course and with another 45 minute drive you will be at Glacier Point. Continue on and Yosemite Valley will be at your feet. Another attraction in the area is the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway which has its starting point in the town of North Fork. It is a spectacular 100 mile loop through Sierra National Forrest with stunning views, picnic grounds, hiking trails and the gateway to Mono Hotsprings.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Katie and Bob are local teachers who love the outdoors and the great opportunities to enjoy nature in Yosemite, Bass Lake, and the Sierra National Forest. Our most recent adventure is creating a small heritage breed animal farm. We are currently raising Kune Kune pigs, a rare heritage breed meant for grazing as well as meat. They are very smart, friendly and love to have their ears scratched!

              Why the Owner Chose Bass Lake:
              We chose North Fork as it's a great place to raise kids, flowers, fruits, and vegetables, and spend time outdoors. And, who wouldn't want Yosemite in their backyard? We are on 12 acres that are perfect for raising animals of all sorts, a large vegetable garden and the beginnings of an orchard.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              We are located on the faster, more scenic route to the South Gate of Yosemite National Park (35 minutes) and Bass Lake (10 minutes). We are 25 minutes from the town of Oakhurst. We are situated in an ideal resting spot after day trips to many local attractions and half hour to the Chukchansi Casino and resort. You can sit in your own private garden and look out over historic grazing pastures and watch the sun set over the hills behind you and if you hit it right, you can enjoy the produce from our vegetable garden.
