About the Property
6 bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 17 with lakefront & mountain views
This beautiful lakefront family home has three floors overlooking the lake in the prime area of Willow Cove. This area of the lake is safe from speeding boats as it is in a 5-mile an hour zone. This also reduces the noise level.
The main floor is on the middle level. Here you will find a large living room with ample seating for your family. The living room also features the original granite fireplace from when the cabin was built in 1942. The cabin was renovated and enlarged in 1984 when we bought it. The game table is a wonderful place for playing cards & games, working puzzles or writing emails (free wifi) while looking out at the lake.
The dining room also looks onto the lake and can seat 10 at the large dining table. The two adjacent eating counters seat 4 each. The French doors from the dining room open onto a covered deck with ceiling fan and a large round patio table that seats 8. This deck is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee as you watch the sun come up or for an evening bbq. The large gas fueled bbq is located adjacent to this seating area.
The recently renovated kitchen is fully equipped with a five-burner gas cooktop, convection oven, a convection/microwave oven, dishwasher and trash compactor. You'll find plenty of dinnerware and cookware for your use. For coffee lovers there is also an expresso/cappuccino maker and two 12- cup coffee pots. The central island/chopping block is ideal for the whole family to help prepare some delicious meals. A washer & dryer plus a second refrigerator are located just steps from the kitchen.
Also on the main level there are two bedrooms each with queen size beds. The shared bathroom has double sinks and tub/shower.
On the top floor is the large master bedroom suite with a freestanding fireplace, seating area and private bath with double sinks and double-headed shower. The second master bedroom has a queen size bed and private bath with tub/shower. Both third floor bedrooms overlook the lake.
On the lower level is a family room and two bedrooms facing the lake. The family room has a queen size sleeper sofa and a twin trundle that sleeps two. One of the bedrooms features a queen size bed and other bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed. The fourth bathroom with double sinks & tub/shower is on this lower level.
The French doors from the family room take you out to a lake level patio with table and chairs to seat 6. Another recent addition is a cushioned seating bench that seats 4. This is a great area for watching a hot game of horseshoes. Just a few steps down is a wide sandy beach with a horseshoe pit, room for sunbathing and building sand castles. On the beach we provide four chaise lounges to relax on while you read or watch the kids play. Our dock has room for you to have two boats or one boat and jet ski.
We have free wifi and a Verizon signal extender.
We have rented our home during the summer for over 20 years now but just recently started listing it on VRBO.
Check out our video tour on youtube. Note the kitchen has been totally remodeled.

We have recently reduced the weekly price $1300 due to the drought & lower water levels on the lake. There is still plenty of water for water skiing, jet skis and other water activities. Due to the drought our dock is not is the water for the 2015 season. The lake is just a 2-3 minutes walk across the beach now.

Located in the Sierra's at 3500' elevation, this home is located on Willow Cove in beautiful Bass Lake. It's just a 25 minute drive via Highway 41 to the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park. Just inside the entrance is the Mariposa Grove with an easy walking trail through the giant redwoods. A few miles inside the park you'll come to the historic Wawona Hotel and Golf Course. On your way to the Valley you can detour to Glacier Point and in the winter you can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing at Badger Pass. Continuing on to the Valley you have to stop at the Lookout after going through the tunnel. From this vista you can see Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan and Half Dome. Don't forget your camera. Once you reach the valley floor there are trails that take you to the base of Bridalveil Falls and Yosemite Falls. In the summer you can float on the Merced River or enjoy a horseback ride. The best way to see the Valley is on a tram ride from Yosemite Village. The guides are very knowledgeable and give a great overview of sights and the parks history. Don't miss the Ahwahnee Hotel. Walk through the public rooms and see the huge walk-in fireplace. Be sure to check out the dining room and if you have time, stay for lunch/dinner or on Sundays the brunch is outstanding.
If you're an avid mountain biker there are lots of advanced trails around the lake, i.e. 007, Goat Mountain, and Willow Creek.
Ski boat, jet skis and patio boat rentals are available just 5 minutes away in the Pines Village. For the best hamburgers in the area try the Forks Resort or Miller's Landing. Both have gorgeous lake views.
There are two nearby golf courses just outside of Oakhurst. Sierra Meadows offers an 18 hole course and River Creek has 9 holes.
Year Purchased: 1984
About: The owners, Dennis & Cindy, shown above moved to Bass Lake in 1983 with our young family of four children. We had vacationed here for many years and decided we wanted our four children to grow up in a small mountain community. We spent six months enlarging & renovating a small lake front cabin that was originally built in 1942. Our children grew up in this house, went to elementary & high school here before starting their own families. They have blessed us with nine grandchildren. We just recently retired and love to travel and visit our children & grandkids.
Why Bass Lake, CA, USA:
My husband started vacationing here when he was ten, and we started coming together in 1966. A vacation spent in a neighboring rental convinced us this was a prime location. This is the home where we raised our family. You'll find family photos still on the walls and all the comforts of a real home. There are bright light-filled rooms and no dark cabin paneling in sight. The beach is right out the lower family room door. There are many tall pine trees around the house and a lawn area on the side. You can watch the alpin glow from the sunset as it settles on the forest across the cove or if you're lucky enough to be here during a full moon you can watch it rise too. If you're here in August, you can sometimes catch the meteor showers if you lay out on the chaise on the beach. This is one of the safest places to swim because boats are only allowed to go 5 miles an hour in Willow Cove. We have been blessed to live here for 33 years and give thanks for that blessing every day.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is large enough for two or three families and is a wonderful place to make vacation memories. Bring your beach chairs & pop-ups and spend a lazy day on the beach. The water is warm and your views of the pine covered mountains is spectacular. Your also just 30 minutes from the southern entrance into Yosemite National Parks and a short distance from the Sierra Scenic Byway.
