We have stayed at this property both winter and spring/summer and enjoyed both times of the year. It is great for Christmas with cozy fires and big picture window to watch the snow. Spring and summer the color is beautiful, wild flowers, all sorts of animal life and mild temperatures. The house is perfect for family gatherings, well appointed and lots of space. Also good for pets. Owners are very gracious about pets as long as guests are considerate, cover furniture, etc. A car is a necessity as you are 20 some miles from Bishop but the drive is beautiful. There are steps so not so good for someone phsically impaired. This is a great property.!
World famous bouldering area, The Buttermilks and Owen's Gorge for vertical scaling, many mines accessible with 4x4 vehicle. Can rent 4x4 quad and Harleys in town!
