Property description

This luxury, fully containted apartment is part of a main cabin built in 1898 during the glory days of the Madera Sugar Pine Lumber Company, the largest, most successful lumber operation west of the Mississippi. Part of what was originally the MSP Paymasters Office it is located approx. 7 miles north of Oakhurst on highway 41 and just 5 miles from the southern entrance into Yosemite National Park. Elevation is 4500 ft. so when it's 100 degrees in the valley, it's about 75 here at Sugar Pine. Apartment is approx. 400 square feet and is totally furnished. Includes a new queen log bed, futon, full bath, kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave, ceiling fan (which you'll probably never need). Use of BBQ and very large patio area with towering pine trees. as the patio ceiling. Old historic Lewis Creek runs in front of the cabin. This creek was used to provide water to the 56 mile flume that took the cut lumber down to Madera during the production years (1898-1931). During that time it was the longest flume in the world. Beautiful area for fishing, hiking and taking in the beauty of old Sugar Pine. The property is only 1 mile off highway 41. This historic structure provides total privacy and luxury. A romantic glimpse into the past glory days of the Madera Sugar Pine Lumber Compay and Yosemite awaits.

Located in Sugar Pine which was the headquarters of the Madera Sugar Pine Company, the largest lumber operation west of the Mississippi. The company operated from 1898 to 1931 when it closed down due to the great depression. Beautiful wooded area about 4500 in elevation. Many place to hike and is also a very short 10-15 minute drive to Yosemite. Try to take the old log train ride. Much fun and information about the old days. Next to the train is the best steak house in the area - the Narrow Gauge Inn.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Born and raised in Bakersfield. Went to Bakersfield College where I played in the Junior Rose Bowl Game in 1959.Graduate of Fresno State. Taught high school and coached football and baseball for 16 years then on to other things. Commercial builder, winery owner and have been in the insurance business since 1985. Banjo player in a bluegrass band and finally just an old 'mountain man'. Have spent 15 years totally remodeling property. I have tried to keep the outside exactly as it was 'back in the day' while modernizing interior. This has been a labor of love for me.

Why the Owner Chose Fish Camp:
This cabin was purchased by my uncle Dean Cook in 1931 when the lumber company closed down during the Great Depression. He had been the sales manager and when the company shut down and he purchased the entire 400 acres and about 15-20 cabins used by the lumberjacks during production days. The main cabin he kept for himself and turned it into personal residence. Originally, it was the old MSP Paymaster's Office. I have been coming up to this cabin since I was born in 1940. I have a picture of my mother on the front porch taken in 1935 so you can see this has always been in the family. When my uncle died, it was taken over by his son (my cousin). After he and his wife died, I purchased it from the estate. My second cousin lives at the top end of the meadow. This is a delightful place and very dear to me.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Aside from the family connection there are many great things about the property. Even though this was the center of the logging operation, you would never know it today. Sourrounded by huge pine and cedar trees on all sides, there is plenty of room. Property sits on 1.9 acres with Lewis Creek running in front. Very cool in the summer and very quiet. A place where you can totally relax and unwind. You will have the use of a great patio, BBQ and all the sourrounding beauty you can handle. On the hill in back of the patio, I have even recreated the old 'Yosemite Firefall' in the form of a flume that runs down the hill to the patio. Fishing is good and stocked weekly. You are close enough to Bass Lake, Yosemite, old Mariposa, Oakhurst and other areas to have plenty to do or if you choose, just to relax and enjoy the splendor of Sugar Pine.
