Property description

Our very comfortable and quiet 3 bdrm, 2 Ba vacation home is 5 min. to Bass Lake and 20 miles to Yosemite. The house is in perfect condition with a brand new kitchen.

There is a huge outdoor deck and patio with a copper fire-pit, a very big comfortable hammock to fall asleep in or to rest while watching and listening to the birds in the forest.

In the living room you'll love the huge leather sectional, heated/massage recliner; a wood burning stove and lots of firewood for those cool nights. There's also a pro ping-pong table, Karaoke, PC with wireless, games, movies and DVD players.

All the bedrooms have TVs and cable TV with remotes.

For the cooks in the family, the fantastic newly outfitted kitchen has all the amenities such as a microwave, cappuccino maker, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, disposal and much more.

There are lots of new pots and pans to cook your favorite meals and many types of glasses, cups and plates to enjoy your favorite drinks and desserts.

We really did a special job in setting up our very own vacation home for you to enjoy.

Located in the Sierra National Forest you are likely too see deer, fox, rabbits, squirrels, birds and maybe even an occasional bear.

Bass Lake is a summer paradise with warm fresh water and the perfect place for fun, family reunions, romantic getaways and is only five minutes away from our home.

Shaver Lake is one hour away. Shaver Lake is a winter wonderland great for skiing, snow boards, sledding and snowball fights in the winter.

You will not be disappointed with our home. We have taken extra care to make it the perfect place for us to enjoy when we need to get away and now you have the opportunity to enjoy it yourself.

Bass Lake: Nestled within a towering pine forest Bass lake is one of the world's most beautiful natural settings. Long considered the hidden jewel of the Sierra National Forest, the lake is situated within 17 miles from the Southern gate of Yosemite National Park, just 56 miles north of Fresno. Bass Lake is in the Sierra National Forest at an elevation of 3,400 feet. It's also a premier location for outdoor recreational fun, including boating, fishing, swimming, sports, barbecues, camping and much more.

Our home is two miles to Bass Lake and 20 miles to the south entrance to Yosemite. Located in the Gold Country of California, boating, fishing, water skiing, hiking, camping and many other outdoor activities are abundant.

Centrally located to many other lakes, our home is extremely comfortable and welcoming. A fully equipped kitchen, satellite TVs in all bedrooms, air-conditioning, wireless Internet, a ping pong table, propane grill, hammock, picnic table and much much more will guarantee you and your family will enjoy your time together.

There is so much to see and do you'll be excited to get out and explore.


Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra.

Yosemite was first protected in 1864. Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Close by is North Fork. North Fork is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada at an elevation of 2638 feet (804 m).[1] According to the 2000 U.S. Census the population of the 93643 zip code area was 3,360 with a median age of 44.8 years. The community is inside area code 559. It is part of the Madera–Chowchilla Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The geographic center of the state of California is located between North Fork and Italian Bar. The point is about 7.1 miles (11.4 km) driving distance from the United States Forest Service office in North Fork. The location is marked by a sign and a survey marker. NAD83 coordinates for the exact center of California are 37°09′58″N 119°26′58″W The Fresno County line is less than one mile (1.6 km), (straight-line distance), from the site's survey marker. The site is also marked on the United States Forest Service road map of Sierra National Forest, which can be purchased at the North Fork USFS office. The actual site has wooden stairs leading up the hillside about 50 feet from the road. The marker is not wheelchair accessible.
