Property description

Little House on the Fish Farm was built in 2013 and opened her doors in 2014. The three bedroom, two bath guest house is located on property that has been in our family for generations.

Danish teak furnishings, bamboo flooring and recessed lighting give the house a simple yet modern feel. The space is tastefully decorated with water lily prints, artifacts picked up on our travels, and local art.

The family room is a comfortable place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The library is filled with books to encourage you on your next adventure. There is also a smart flat screen TV, DVDs, and board games.

The efficient galley kitchen has custom granite countertops and includes everything you need to create a delicious home-cooked meal.

•stainless steel fridge
•gas stove/oven
•microwave oven
•coffee maker
•Cuisinart pots/pans
•plates, cups, and utensils

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and is furnished with a queen bed. A favorite feature in the master bathroom is the soaking tub. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and are furnished with twin beds. Each bathroom has a blow dryer.

The house has a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board.


Little House on the Fish Farm is located in the Sanger river bottom, known for its peacefulness and beautiful scenery. Our ponds play host to a variety of wildlife including fish, insects, frogs, beavers, waterfowl and birds of prey. In the late spring, splashes of vibrant color dot our ponds as water lilies begin to bloom.

A stone’s throw from Little House, sheep, goats and cows graze in the pasture. Feel free to visit the hen house and collect eggs for your morning breakfast. The “floating” goat house greets you as you drive down the dirt road.

Sunrise is a magical time. Grab a cup of coffee, head outside, and experience the farm as she wakens from her slumber. Sunsets are equally spectacular. Go ahead, fire up the BBQ and eat a leisurely dinner on the spacious wrap-around deck. There is a kind of hush as darkness slowly envelops the farm. The stars shine brightly in the stillness. It is a perfect ending to an unforgetable day.

The town of Sanger

Even though your nearest human neighbors are half a mile away, you are within three miles of shopping and restaurants.

Sanger is at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. A quaint town of 25,000, Sanger is literally that place where you can’t walk down Main Street without bumping into somebody you know. Within this close-knit community, you can find modern stores next to family restaurants and shops that have been in business for the greater part of the past century.


Fresno County Blossom Trail

Sanger is the hub for many events on the Fresno County Blossom Trail:

•Opening Ceremonies (location varies)
•River Blossom Bike Ride - Reedley (10 miles)
•Blossom Days Festival and Car Show - Sanger
•Blossom Trail 10K Run - Sanger
•Blossom Trail Wine Weekend - Sanger, Kingsburg and Tivy Valley

Trek to the Nation's Christmas Tree

Sanger is known as 'The Nation's Christmas Tree City.' Every December, Sanger hosts the Trek to the Nation's Christmas Tree in Kings Canyon National Park.


Just a 50-minute drive away up Highway 180, the entrance to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks affords guests convenient access to hiking, fishing, birding, and backpacking opportunities within the parks.

Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, is also just a short drive up Highway 41 from Little House on the Fish Farm. Hike up to Bridalveil Falls, climb El Capitan, or backpack out of Tuolumne Meadows.

Little House on the Fish Farm is conveniently located near three national parks. We provide an affordable yet home-like alternative for visitors heading out to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

We also attract visitors interested in fish farming, aquaponics, and farm life. Many of our guests stay at Little House because they want to know where their food comes from and/or are contemplating growing their own food.

And of course, some come to Little House just to get away from it relax, unwind, and enjoy the quiet stillness reminiscent of days long ago.

About the owner: John studied fisheries biology in college and then went to Papau New Guinea as a Peace Corps Volunteer.

In 1985, they moved to Sanger, California and broke ground on their first fish pond.
