About the Property

Loft style modern rustic home; 1 Queen Master, 1 Queen Loft; 1 Bath for 4 per

This home has the warmth of natural light, passive solar design and furniture.

Wildrose Station is perched at the rim of the ancient sea, now above Mono Lake, where the pinion pine forest meets high desert sage. Not far below the property are scattered tufa formations from the Pleistocine era.

Wildrose Station (named after the original owner's radio handle) is a safe haven, private, with a road gate, perfect as a writer's retreat or romantic getaway on 40 acres.

The house has a bird's eye view, nearly 360 degrees, over Mono Lake, it's volcanic islands, the Mono Craters, the White Mountains (Bristlecone trees) which border Nevada, wrapping around to Mt. Tom, to Mammoth Mountain ski area, June Mountain ski area, the Minaret range within the Ansel Adams Wilderness, high peaks of Yosemite National Park, up to Lundy and Virginia Lakes and Dunderberg Mountain.

The historic ghost town of Bodie is just a few miles in the hills behind the house. To the east of Mono Lake, herds of wild horses roam.

This 1200 square foot home, with it's open, studio-like floor plan, expansive views and late light, offers spectacular sunrises, moonrises, alpenglows and stargazing.

Each season abounds with recreation--just out the door-- or an hour to Mammoth Mountain; half an hour to June Mountain ski area. Summer days are long...great birdwatching, kayaking, canoeing, wildflower viewing and hiking in the nearby canyons, fly-fishing, mountain biking, four wheel driving. The autumn usually offers California's most spectacular fall colors in aspen clustered canyons nearby--a photographer's paradise. Hot springs are accessible year-round....some just to the north outside of Bridgeport and others southeast of Mammoth Lakes and Benton Hot Springs.

Winter days at the house are surprisingly warm inside while the great outdoors offers some the best back-country skiing, alpine at nearby June Mountain( 30 minutes) & Mammoth Mountain(55 minutes) ski areas, and out the door cross country skiing, as well as California's own ice climbing at nearby Lee Vining Creek canyon and at Silver Lake (June Lakes).

The largest nearby airport is Reno, Nevada, a two and a half hour drive from the house. Mammoth Lakes-Yosemite Airport is an hour's drive south.

For short term stays consider our other property, the historic Dutch Pete's Ranch, near Benton Hot Springs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a mother of two young children these days, and not able to visit my sweet home as much as I'd like. Living at Wildrose Station was paradise! As a single woman I felt very safe and could really relax after a long day/night around many people at the Mono Inn roadhouse. I am thrilled to be able to share this place with special guests who enjoy the solace of wide open spaces, away from populated areas. It's an ideal writer's retreat. I used to ski in and out of the house in winter on the driveway, take long memorable walks with my dogs around the Bodie Hills and canyons. Many fond memories.

Why the Owner Chose Lee Vining, CA, USA:
It had the right vibe---a peaceful, warmth, gemuetlichkeit. You will understand once you've stayed there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is off-grid, with solar-power, a back-up generator, passive solar design allowing amazing warmth in winter. Outrageous views and sense of peace. The house has contemporary appliances and furniture. So much to say. Please check out the other website 'monolakeranch' for more detailed information and photos. Thank you!
