Most rooms have ceiling fans along with swamp cooling and propane heating and space heaters. The main master bedroom has a king bed, ensuite jetted spa tub, double sinks, 32' LED/DVD tv and a sliding glass door leading to the redwood deck which surrounds the home and gives you lots of room for relaxing while listening to the movement of the river. There is a second master bedroom with a queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, 32' LED/DVD tv. The wood burning fireplace is well situated with a hectoliter for circulating the warm air into the home.

There is also a bathroom with tub/shower combo, double sinks and private toilet. A fully covered porch can be access through the sliding door of the game room.
There is plenty of parking for cars, boats and tow vehicles. We have towed a 27' travel trailer behind a crew cab, long bed pickup without any trouble crossing the single lane bridge heading towards the house. We did have much difficulty when leaving the house and heading back towards the bridge. There isn't enough room to make a turn wide enough to line up the back wheels of the trailer to the bridge. Would not recommend pulling anything over 20 foot.
The home is surrounded by a forest of wild flowers, Manzanita, Pines and other native trees including oak. As in all of the Sierra Mountains, wildlife abounds. We are visited regularly by meandering Mule Deer and a large variety of migratory birds. We also have periodic visits from raccoons, coyotes, opossum, gray tree squirrels, gray fox and much more, While we haven’t personally seen any skunks, lions and bears on our property they are definitely nearby. The howling of coyotes can often be heard in the morning and evening hours. On cloudless nights stargazing is always an awesome sight in the darkened mountains

Oakhurst is located above the fog and below the snow, we usually get 0-1 inches of snow several times each winter, just perfect! The area truly has four very distinct seasons, each one offering something new and wonderful. But the best of all is we are 13 miles from the 'Gateway' between the Southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. Other nearby activities are;
Sleigh rides & ice skating at Tenaya Lodge and the Mariposa Grove of giant redwoods located 13 miles away at the southern entrance to Yosemite.
On your way to Yosemite, visit the historic Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railway with its' old-fashioned narrow-gauge steam engines. Take a ride on 'The Logger', pan for gold, stay for lunch or dinner & enjoy their entertainment. Horseback riding stables are also close by (seasonal).

Bring your fishing pole or boat (or rent one at the local marina). You can rent a large pontoon boat, fill up a cooler with all our favorites, and grill on the on-board BBQ out on the lake. Spend a glorious spring or summer day on the Lake, picnicking, swimming, fishing & enjoying water sports--or venture out to any number of nearby lakes.
The start of the world famous 'Sierra Vista Scenic Byway' is 18 miles away.
18.4 miles to Nelder Grover/Giant Sequoias.

About: The Godfreys
Why Oakhurst: We have been camping around the Shaver Lake & Dinkey Creek area for years and love the Sierras. Unfortunately those areas are not retirement friendly. We have looked for three years around the Oakhurst and Mariposa area, before buying this property. When we found this property, our dream had come true. We have our mountains, water, privacy and comfortable home, all within 1/2 mile from all the amenities of town.
