45 minutes from the south entrance to Yosemite National Park, our home is an authentic 5-bedroom log house that can sleep as many as 14 people. There is a wood-burning stove and claw-foot tub that adds to the rustic ambiance. Relax with our large flat screen and surround sound entertainment system that features BluRay and Apple TV. Cook up your favorite dishes on the outdoor BBQ and enjoy the warm evenings on the covered deck/veranda.

There is also a barn and six corrals for horses. Although the structures sit on eleven lovely acres of pine and oak, the best riding is in the nearby Sierra National Forest. There is ample parking for horse trailers and trucks. Two guidebooks by local horsewomen provide lots of advice on specific rides and how to enjoy them.

There are many other activities and sights in the area beginning with Yosemite National Park. The south entrance to the park is only forty minutes away, while the Valley itself is only an hour and a half away. There is golfing at Wawona, hiking throughout the park, birding and wildlife observation, and skiing at Badger Pass in the Winter months. And be sure to bring your camera.

Nearby Bass Lake (15 minutes away) has water sports including boating,kayaking, jet skis, swimming, etc. There are also fine restaurants and shops, with full services in nearby Oakhurst. Oakhurst also has terrific antique stores.

If you enjoy cycling, there are wonderful road rides, including the Scenic Byway. And of course a never-ending supply of off-road opportunities for mountain bikers. Local streams and lakes offer fishing, while hiking trails can take you into the wilderness within minutes from our place. Maps are available through the U.S. Forest Service. The Bass Lake Ranger District Office is located in North Fork.

The National Scenic Byway passes within a mile of our property. This is a one-hundred-mile road trip that takes you past spectacular views of the central Sierra Nevada mountains range. It begins right at the turn-off to our property. Mammoth Pools is one of several campgrounds and picnic areas along the By-way.

North Fork is home to the Sierra Mono Museum, a local Native American museum and cultural center. There are exhibits, language preservation, a large collection of exquisite basketry, artwork and artifacts. It hosts a Pow Wow and fair in early August.

Year Purchased: 2001

About: I am a dentist by day and a mom to three teenagers, 19, 18, and 17 years old by night (OK by day too). I am on a quest for knowledge in the area of health. I consider it my job to assist people in becoming healthier, starting of course in the mouth. I have a fabulous husband who is my partner in life. He is as passionate as I am about educating and engaging people, but in his field of media production. He is a nature and animal lover and tells stories with visual video, about restoring the earth amongst many other topics. We love to travel and explore other cultures. We love to learn. I am a learn by doing person and David is an avid reader. We both enjoy yoga. I run and David rides his beloved bike. We have one child in College, one who is a cello player and one who is attempting to go professional in ballet. We are excited to embark on this adventure together of offering a beautiful haven for people (and their horses) to explore this magnificent terrain and reconnect with nature.

Why North Fork, CA, USA:
Our main home is in the San Francisco Bay Area, but had been coming to North Fork because our meditation center is located there. The more time we spent in the area, the more we loved both the location and the people. It's a very small town, and people are very caring and helpful towards one another. In fact, we thought we might like to bring our children up there, which ultimately didn't happen. But we found this beautiful property and fun, appealing house with a barn, and couldn't resist. It's in the mountains, but not so high (2800 feet) that we get much snow to speak of during the Winter. It's sort of a gateway to the backcountry and higher elevations. There's lots of wildlife around, like deer, fox, quail,coyote, and hawks. And when it's not as dry, there is a seasonal creek flowing the length of the property. We have several towering Ponderosa pines that I never tire looking up at. So, it's a beautiful mix of cleared, developed land and natural, wooded land. We love going there for weekends because it's lovely, peaceful, and a complete change of pace from our hectic lives in the city. Soon, we'll put in a fruit tree orchard to add to both its charm and the ability to live more off the land. It's been a joy to improve the structures and landscape while still taking time to enjoy the place. It will be fun to share this special place with others who can appreciate its charms.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The two-story log house is very unique, with a wood-burning stove, a balcony overlooking the large living room, and a pine wood cabinet kitchen. Then there is the large covered porch big enough to accommodate two dining tables and chairs. It's a perfect place for outdoor dining and just hanging out. It all makes for very comfortable living. It also has a barn and corrals within view from the house. This means that we can accommodate horses and their riders. Two local horsewomen have written guide books for taking day rides into the nearby back country. So, our property is the perfect staging place for horse people interested in experiencing the mountains on horseback. I love walking around on the 11 acres, particularly in the early morning. It's serene and fresh, with birds chirping and maybe a deer or two nibbling the grass. It starts my day feeling inspired.
