About Katie and Bob Kelly
Katie and Bob are local teachers who love the outdoors and the great opportunities to enjoy nature in Yosemite, Bass Lake, and the Sierra National Forest. Our most recent adventure is creating a small heritage breed animal farm. We are currently refining the chicken run and will soon have donkeys and/or horses and of course, pigs! We also have four loving kittens who are quite happy to have you scratch their ears.
Katie and Bob Kelly purchased this Farmhouse in 2011
Why Katie and Bob Kelly chose North Fork
We chose North Fork as it's a great place to raise kids, flowers, fruits, and vegetables, and spend time outdoors. And, who wouldn't want Yosemite in their backyard? We are on 12 acres that are perfect for raising animals of all sorts, a large vegetable garden and the beginnings of an orchard.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We are located on the faster, more scenic route to the South Gate of Yosemite National Park (35 minutes) and Bass Lake (10 minutes). We are 25 minutes from the town of Oakhurst. We are situated in an ideal resting spot after day trips to many local attractions and half hour to the Chukchansi Casino and resort. You can sit in your own private garden and look out over historic grazing pastures and watch the sun set over the hills behind you and if you hit it right, you can enjoy the produce from our vegetable garden.

Wonderful place to stay
We couldn't have been happier, Katie and Bob's house was as described and even better than expected.
The garden is lovely, the house was very comfortable - especially the beds and even though it was a heatwave, the house was really cool and a pleasant temperature.
The information from Katie and Bob about the house, directions and suggestions for places to visit were excellent. We particularly enjoyed Manzanita Lake which is only about 5 minutes away.
Accommodations that Floridians dream about
Everything you need to enjoy a couple nights stay close to Yosemite. Comfy beds, plenty of room. Pleasant outdoor area. Loved the grill and kitchen was very well stocked.
The hosts (Katie snd Bob) have a goat, chickens, and a horse. You can interact with all of them.
There is soap, shampoo, and a hairdryer for your use. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us!
You are about 45 minutes from Yosemite, and bring your groceries with you so that you can relax and enjoy the property.
Would love to return!
Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Katie and bob we’re great hosts and the place was cozy and perfect. The farm is awesome and the views are stunning. Thank you!
Cozy cottage on a rainy night.
My granddaughter and I could move in tomorrow forever. Very sweet cottage and yard. We enjoyed the bottle of wine, wrapped in a comforter with the fireplace going (we appreciated the duralog)on a rainy night. We watched Netflix until we had laughed ourselves silly. Katie was very kind and accomodating with our coming and going and late night hours visiting with family in North Fork.
Perfect little hideaway
Had everything we needed for our stay. Nice little heater to warm it up. Plenty of space even for our 2 little girls. We stayed only 1 night but I think staying a couple more nights would have been just as nice. Highly recommend. The front lawn was also soooo cute. Wish we could have enjoyed it all more. Thank you!
Nice and neat spot
It is a nice and neat house with cute goat, chicken and horse living with you. The fresh eggs that the owner shared with us tasted very good. It is just next to a road which sometimes get a bit noisy even at night.
North Fork, a former logging community nestled in the middle of a vast pine and cedar forest is based at an elevation of 3,000 feet. North Fork has a large artist community, a farmers' market, and large Mono Indian population with several museums. The town itself is a quiet, quaint town that has one of the best Mexican restaurants you will ever enjoy. There is a grocery store, post office, coffee house, Pizza Factory and the authentic Buckhorn Saloon. Bass Lake is a 10 minute drive through the pines where you can lay on the beach, hike the trails, jet ski, dine at the local restaurants or rent a boat. Continue on another 25 miles and you will arrive at the South Gate of Yosemite National Park. You will be minutes away from the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia trees and the Wawona Hotel and golf course and with another 45 minute drive you will be at Glacier Point. Continue on and Yosemite Valley will be at your feet. Another attraction in the area is the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway which has its starting point in the town of North Fork. It is a spectacular 100 mile loop through Sierra National Forrest with stunning views, picnic grounds, hiking trails and the gateway to Mono Hotsprings.
