Welcome to our small, family-owned fish farm just 54 miles west of Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park. Guests will delight in the diverse wildlife and serene views.
The house comfortably sleeps six (one queen bed and four twin beds). If there are seven or eight guests, rollaway cots can be provided.
Guided fishing excursions are available at an additional cost. Please inquire if interested.
Little House on the Fish Farm was designed and built by your hosts 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, watching DVDs on the Smart TV, playing board games, and listening to music on the Bluetooth speakers. If you prefer to spend your evening curled up on the couch reading instead, the library is filled with books to encourage you on your next adventure.
The galley kitchen is equipped with:
• custom granite countertops
• stainless steel fridge
• gas stove/oven
• 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 are furnished with twin beds and share a second bathroom. 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, hawks and eagles. 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 to the front porch, and experience the farm as she awakens in the still morning air. Sunsets are equally spectacular. Fire up the grill and enjoy a backyard barbeque 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
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.
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 many small, rural communities, our internet speed is very slow and intermittent. It is usually adequate for checking email, but we can’t guarantee that the connection is working at any specific time. For guests who do need access to consistent wifi, there is a Starbucks 3 1/2 miles away in town.
• This listing is on a farm! There will be animal sounds, smells, and insects. Keeping the doors closed will minimize bugs inside the house.
• There is a 3/4 mile drive down a dirt/gravel road to get to the property. Drive carefully, especially at night. Parking is outside in the driveway.
- We do not provide extra blankets in the summer. If you are cold, adjust the a/c!
• Cancellation and Changes - Please choose your dates carefully. We are unable to make changes once the reservation is booked. We follow VRBO's firm cancellation policy.
