Relax and reconnect with family in a restored, 1945, cabin on nine acres that backs to open forest. Sleep in supportive beds and wake to sounds of birds singing in a bubbling fountain. View distant, granite peaks and watch deer and wild turkey as you sip morning coffee on a wrap-around deck! Spend your days exploring Yosemite and Bass Lake. Ride an old, logging train; hike up a granite dome; feel the mist of waterfalls; raft down the Merced River; swim, fish, or paddle in Bass Lake. Cook meals in a fully stocked kitchen with a spacious, old-fashioned butler's pantry. Watch the sun set and moon rise over the Sierras while owls call and frog serenade. Play table games, share a Pixar movie, or read books. Snuggle up by a cozy fireplace and plan tomorrow's adventures. Make life-long, family memories here. Here, in my beloved childhood home.

Background: Thank you for considering my childhood home for your trip. Sharing this special place with you and your loved ones allows me to maintain and improve it. I sincerely hope you will enjoy your stay and treasure the memories you create here. My eight-year-old twins are always excited to arrive and sorry to leave the 'mountain home.'
Interaction with Guests: I sincerely wish I could meet you and thank you for choosing my home for your trip. However, I am not on the property during guest stays. My Mom's best friends host the property and maintain the beautiful, landscaped grounds. They live 1/4 mile away and are available if you need anything.
Rules: Please no pets, animals, or smoking as my husband is a kidney-transplant patient with severe allergies. Four (4) people (i.e., adults, children, and infants) are the maximum allowed number of guests on the property during your stay. There is only one bathroom.
