About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

YOSEMITE'S WATERFALLS ARE ALREADY AMAZING THIS YEAR! and..we've had more water in Bass Lake this year than in the past ten years. Summer of 2017 will be awesome!

YOSEMITE PARK AND BASS LAKE ARE STILL AN AMAZING AND AFFORDABLE VACATION COMBINATION! OUR WHOLE CABIN COSTS LESS THAN ONE HOTEL ROOM AT YOSEMITE.

'We had such a wonderful time at your cabin. It was such a wonderful change from a boring hotel room' (Todd B.- recent guest)

This is a charming and comfortable cabin at Bass Lake that is somewhat secluded on a small hill overlooking the lake. There is one master bedroom and full bath with a California King bed and a TV. The second bedroom is small, with a bunk bed that is twin-sized on top and full-sized on the bottom. This bedroom has its own bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink. The living room has a queen-sized Ikea sofa bed (comfy!) and a large TV with DVD/VCR player. The modern kitchen has a nook that sits 4-6. There is an adjacent library/den area with a larger table that can be used for dining, game playing, puzzles, crafts, working at your laptop, etc.

There is a hot tub on the deck that overlooks the lake. The hot tub is especially wonderful at night when all is quiet and the stars are bright. There is a patio table (with umbrella) which is the perfect spot for eating all meals, game-playing, relaxing with a glass of wine, etc. You will definitely spend a lot of time on the deck overlooking the hillside and lake. To the side of the house is an enclosed yard area with a concrete patio and a basketball hoop. Children love to play in this side-yard area (although young children must always be supervised)

It is a 5-minute walk to the lake. The Falls beach area is less than a mile down the road. In the other direction, there are many public beaches within walking distance or just a short drive...just choose one that fits your fancy. If you have young children, the beaches closest to our cabin have lots of shallow areas that are perfect for children to play safely in. The water is a great temperature for swimming during the summer. The Pines Village is 2 miles down the road. There you'll find The Pines grocery store, a gas station, a few restaurants and shops to browse in. There are boat and other rentals available on both sides of the lake as well as a couple of amazing burger, sandwich and ice-cream places (Millers Landing and The Forks).

New: Tempur-Pedic mattress toppers in both bedrooms! Sleep like a dream!

New: high chair, Pak'N'Play and baby toys! Save yourself the hassle of packing this essential baby gear!

The town of Oakhurst is just 8 miles away and has a wide variety of restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, bowling, etc. There is also good golf, hiking and fishing nearby. And of course, Yosemite is just up the road! It's a 20 minute drive to the southern entrance to Yosemite (and the Mariposa Grove) and then another 40 minutes down into Yosemite Valley. Day trips into Yosemite are very easy to do....then come back to soak in the hot tub at night!

This cabin is a perfect retreat for couples who want a quiet get-away. Families love it too!

About Wendy Smith

We are a couple in our early 60's from the San Francisco Bay Area. Bass Lake is a 3-hour drive from our home. We bought our cabin 11 years ago while taking an anniversary trip to a Bed and Breakfast in the area. We stopped by a realtor's office for a casual chat, found out that this little home had just become available for sale and hadn't yet been listed, went over to take a look, and made an offer to buy it! Thus, we returned from our anniversary weekend as first-time cabin owners.

We have traveled throughout France and stayed at many wonderful bed-and-breakfasts; we'd love for our French friends to enjoy our cabin while visiting America,

Wendy Smith purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Wendy Smith chose Yosemite Area

We love the peace and beauty of the mountain area. Although we have a boat, we find that we prefer the area when it's less crowded and we can hike and relax. My husband is a photographer, a la Ansel Adams, so there are limitless possibilities for his passion.

What makes this cabin unique

The hot tub under the starry sky soothes many harried souls. The lake is beautiful from all directions, whether you're on it or biking or walking around it. Burgers and sandwiches at Millers Landing must not be missed. A romantic dinner at Duceys is worth every penny. Cuddling in the cabin living room by the fire with a good DVD and a good local wine or hot cocoa is enjoyable, no matter what the weather is doing outside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were overjoyed when we arrived at your cabin!! It was as described and more. Large, well-furnished, homey and extremely comfortable. The view is to die for!

Would love to come back again (from England)

Hidden Beauty, Sparkeling Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place is adorable! It's tucked away yet overlooking the beauty of Bass Lake. Wonderful amenities including a hot tub that was so amazing for relaxing! It's really a perfect little get away spot. It's quiet enough to relax, and surrounded by beautiful trees, yet close enough to the little town it's surrounded by. It's also not to far from Yosemite. The perfect little hideaway! Definitely would go back!!!!

Awesome stay at an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for visiting Yosemite or staying local to Bass Lake. Everything was clean and had the "cabin feel" we were looking for! Enjoyed the evenings in the spa gazing up at the stars! Can't beat the price, location, and space you get!

Bass Lake gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We relaxed on the deck in the afternoon and by the wood stove in the evening.Hot tub under a sparkling sky.

Lakeside walks and hikes. A true escape with all you need nearby.

Peaceful and restorative nature. Nice arrangement of the large spacious cabin with plenty of room for a family. Boating, fishing, birding, and more to do. Very friendly folks around the area. Great food. A great way to spend your vacation.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Wendy's cabin was perfect. Weather prevented us from being outside as much as we had hoped, but the coziness, cleanliness and amenities of the house kept us very happy. The rain and snow made us enjoy the (very clean) hot tub even more! Since we ended up cooking a lot, the kitchen was perfect since it was well stocked with supplies and had everything we needed to prepare our meals, which we got ingredients for at the store only 15 minutes away. There was lots of counter space for cooking and cleaning, so the we didn't even notice there wasn't a dishwasher. The master bed was comfortable, bright and warm and the bunk beds looked perfect for kids. The inventory of games kept us very entertained. We will definitely be visiting Wendy's cabin in the future!

Please install a dishwasher!

Owner's Response: Hi Minil, We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. Thank you for your suggestion about a dishwasher. We'd probably lose too much cabinet space by installing one. Guests who don't want to do dishes usually use paper plates and plastic cups (we do provide some). Our cabin description does not claim to have a dishwasher, so it has not been an expectation of our guests. Best wishes.
