About Tricia Louise

I am a very ambitious gal. I am born & raised in California. I have traveled the globe, & always feel relieved when coming home. We have always kept our property a private Havin for my Husband Kent, son Cosmo & myself. After years of building gardens, trails, mediation nests we have decided to open up our property to not only bring in a little extra funds, but to also make new friends that are in the area to enjoy the vast beauty that surrounds us.

Tricia Louise purchased this house in 1994

Why Tricia Louise chose Yosemite Area

It is so quiet. Not to brag, but…The Views are the best in the whole town by far! You can enjoy a quiet sit in the gardens. Sleep on a High Thread Count Sheet lined bed, relax in the gorgeous Hot-Tub under the Oak Trees.

All natural products are used on this property.

What makes this house unique

We are so close to Yosemite without being too far from the stores, movie theaters & restaurants. Bass Lake is just around the corner, to enjoy swimming, boating, hiking, & dinning.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tricia and Kent were gracious and friendly hosts. They were very helpful (offering tips on local eats where to go/see) and accommodating. Their property is gorgeous and the pictures don’t do it justice! The views from the balcony and deck are amazing and the amenities offered were a bonus to an already great place. We were even able to rent their speedboat on Bass Lake (so much fun!). Perfect for a getaway or for visiting Yosemite. Thanks Tricia and Kent! Hope to stay there again soon :)

Nice and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days and it was just perfect. The owners have taken great pride in providing an excellant place to relax. There is more than enough supplies (towels, beach towels, hand soap, kitchen gear, etc) to accomadate everyone, even games to play. They even have tourist books all around along with maps and descriptions to all the local places to try and see. I will definetely be going back again to try some of the stuff we didn't have time to do this time. Thanks

The view could not be any better! We had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay on this property. The space was ample for 5 people however there were only 4 chairs at the table. Only improvements I would suggest are there are no measuring utensils for cooking and the ants are TERRIBLE! We put everything in the fridge, left nothing on the counters and still there were ants everywhere.

Owner's Response: Megan, We were so happy you chose to stay here at the Blissful Retreat. After reading your review about the ants I am so sorry to know that they were so bad for you during your stay. Being in the mountains, most homes in the area do get their fair share of ants compared to inner cities or heavily chemically treated areas. However, I do regret not addressing the issue more aggressively before your stay with us. Since then, we have rectified the 'ant sightings' and have found a very Natural, yet Aggressive Ant Management and have not seen ants since your stay with us here back in June of 2014. I pride myself on making the Blissful Retreat the cleanest and most relaxed accommodations that are possible. I would hope you except my regrets as not only for any discomforts you may have had but also the effects that your review has created here on my page. For any future guests looking here I would want you to know that there are no ants to speak of, since that seems to be the main message implied here in this review. I look forward to hosting you in a place that is sure to give you the same reflections that the majoroity of my guests expierence.

A beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this place so much. My hubby was in heaven cooking with the fresh herbs from the gardens. Our kids loved the pool table and the animals that lived next door. The hot tub was used on most nights, and we would love to return in the future. Tricia was so eager to please and make sure we had our needs met. The extra fresh eggs in the morning were so sweet and appreciated. Meeting cool and genuine people while on vacation made our Yosemite adventure all the more memorable. Thanks Ken and Tricia!

This place was wonderful, everything in the photographs is there and then some ! 2 people in our party had never been to Yosemite before so this was a wonderful introduction.

The view from the back is awesome and Tricia was wonderful, she suggested a place very close to the house but very well hidden from the regular tourist areas in the valley.

Willow Creek was the highlight of our trip.

We will be back and this is the place to stay ! So Tricia, expect us back very soon. Thanks for everything.

We are nestled amongst a lovely Organic Herbal Garden located near the small town of Oakhurst Ca. Its a short scenic 20 mile drive too Yosemite, & a Hop-Skip 2 Miles to Bass Lake.

Living and enjoying the area for many years has given me the locations of many hard to find local treasures. Places the general tourist would never know to look. I am happy to share my detailed maps of places to explore, restaurants that will best suit your flavor, & shops that are bound to carry the souvenirs of your desires.

We like to pride ourselfs that we do not use any chemicals to clean the property or unnatural pesticides. We believe they are harmful to humans & pets. When visiting the Blissful Retreat we suggest that in the Summer months that the kitchen counters be kept clear of food & moisture after each use. That the dishes are rinsed before putting into dishwasher.
