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 Oakhurst

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 :)

Everything was beyond expectation. We had such a great time there. Tricia was very helpful and responded to our various questions before and during our trip. I highly recommend this place if you're planning to visit Yosemite National Park.

Truly a blissful retreat - fabulous views, location, and owner recommendations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family tremendously enjoyed the stay! The teens particularly loved the hot tub, pool table, and puppies, and the adults loved the calm evenings watching the sunset and night sky. It was the last stop on our California adventure and we couldn't be happier with choice to stay here!

Perfect location for adventures

  • 5 of 5

Location was terrific for our winter visit to Yosemite. The great surprise was discovering Bass Lake... very close and the owners had many suggestions for hikes in the area. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and our family enjoyed the pool table and the hot tub each evening. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property!

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

Car: recommended

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.
