Property description

Welcome to our small, family-owned fish farm just 54 miles west of Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park. Located in the scenic Sanger river bottom, guests will delight in the diverse wildlife and serene views.

The limit for this listing is eight guests, including children/infants.

The house comfortably sleeps six (one queen bed and four twin beds). If there are seven or eight guests, rollaway cots will be provided.

Guided fishing excursions available at an additional cost. Please inquire if interested.

Little House on the Fish Farm was built in 2013. The three-bedroom, two-bath guest house is located on property that has been in our family for generations.

Danish teak furnishings, bamboo flooring, and recessed lighting give the house a simple yet modern feel. The space is decorated with water lily prints, artifacts picked up on our travels, and local art.

The family room is a comfortable place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The library is filled with books to encourage you on your next adventure. There is also a Smart TV, DVDs, and board games.

Galley kitchen is equipped with:
*custom granite countertops
*stainless steel fridge
*gas stove/oven
*dishwasher
*toaster
*microwave oven
*coffee maker
* electric kettle
* pots, pans, plates, cups, and utensils

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and is furnished with a queen bed. A favorite feature in the master bathroom is the soaking tub. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and are furnished with twin beds. Each bathroom has a blow dryer.

The house has a washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, steamer and two full-length mirrors.

THE OUTSIDE SPACE

Little House on the Fish Farm is located in the Sanger river bottom, known for its peacefulness and beautiful scenery. Our ponds play host to a variety of wildlife including fish, insects, frogs, beavers, waterfowl, and birds of prey. In the late spring, splashes of vibrant color dot our ponds as water lilies begin to bloom.

A stone’s throw from Little House, sheep, goats, and cows graze in the pasture. Feel free to visit the hen house and collect eggs for your morning breakfast. The “floating” goat house greets you as you drive down the dirt road.

Sunrise is a magical time. Grab a cup of coffee, head outside, and experience the farm as she wakens from her slumber. Sunsets are equally spectacular. Go ahead, fire up the BBQ and enjoy a leisurely dinner on the spacious wrap-around deck. There is a kind of hush as darkness slowly envelops the farm. The stars shine brightly in the stillness. It is a perfect ending to an unforgettable day.


THE TOWN OF SANGER

Even though your nearest human neighbors are half a mile away, you are within three miles of shopping and restaurants.

A quaint town of 25,000, Sanger is literally that place where you can’t walk down Main Street without bumping into somebody you know. Within this close-knit community, you can find modern stores next to family restaurants and shops that have been in business for the greater part of the past century.



SEQUOIA, KINGS CANYON AND YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARKS

Just a 54 mile drive away up Highway 180, the entrance to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks affords guests convenient access to hiking, fishing, birding, and backpacking opportunities within the parks.

Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, is just up Highway 41. Hike up to Bridalveil Falls, climb El Capitan, or backpack out of Tuolumne Meadows.

GUEST ACCESS

Guests have access to the house, deck, chicken coop and the large pasture in front of the house. Guests do not have access to the rest of the property without permission.



OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

• As is typical of most small, rural communities, our internet speed is on the slow side and occasionally, intermittent. It is usually OK for checking email. Starbucks is 3 1/2 miles away and offers free WiFi.

• As this is a working farm, you may hear occasional farm animal sounds.

• There is a 3/4 mile drive down a dirt/gravel road. Drive carefully, especially at night. Parking is outside in the driveway.

Little House on the Fish Farm is conveniently located near three national parks. We provide an affordable yet home-like alternative for visitors heading out to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

We also attract visitors interested in fish farming, aquaponics, and farm life. Many of our guests stay at Little House because they want to know where their food comes from and/or are contemplating growing their own food.

And of course, some come to Little House just to get away from it all...to relax, unwind, and enjoy the quiet stillness reminiscent of days long ago.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: An avid fisherman in his youth, John studied fisheries biology at the University of California, Davis. Upon graduation John served in the Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea. A farmer’s daughter, Janet grew up eating local, sustainable and free-range long before it was fashionable. Her father raised fruit and vegetables in California’s fertile Central Valley. Initially, John and Janet settled in the San Francisco bay area, but they longed for a more simple, self-sufficient lifestyle. In 1985, they moved to Sanger, California and broke ground on their first fish pond.
