Once Vacationers come to the Yosemite Scenic Loop they are amazed at all there is available.

We have access to amenities 1/2 mile to gas, grocery, Bass Lake ranger station, shops and restaurants, video store. You can fish and swim nearby as well as access full Yosemite park up 274 exit out our entrance.

Pools and back country best camping with no crowds! Even in summer we have back country access to Meadows, rivers, mountains and easy
access to elevations from 3000 to 7000 to be cool in summer or get to snow in winter. Don't miss the a pretty house instead of a common dusty cabin that is locked in with no views, we have a good feeling location on the hill looking out and no one looking in.

House is a 3 bed den plus 2 bath.
Upgraded granite counter kitchen with upgrade stove
Outdoor small bbq, no outdoor fires in Yosemite due to laws and droughts
Front full deck for star gazing or hanging outside and looking at the mountains
1/10 mi road to house from well maintained road 1/10 mile from turn off to bass lake and yosemite, (we are the scenic route, yosemite scenic by way, one mile to bass lake ranger station, north fork grocery store, a few eateries , and stores. gas station ) of which which there are none inside the park so folks stay in small towns often for good roads and local things to do.
WE have three local year round waterfalls in 7 to 10 miles of the house . Cascadel Falls, Angel falls at Bass Lake, and Whiskey Creek falls.
We are 26 minutes to the south entrance according to driving notes in my review from a tenant as well as our experience driving into south entrance which is the entrance that has the giant grizzly seqoias. The yosemite train is also outside the park on the way in from our house on hi way 41, before the south entrance.
Behind the house is a school yard, which you cannot see but can hike to the top of in 5 minutes and cross over, for a football field, baseball field. tennis court, playground etc and occasional adult yoga class by a previous neighbor gym teacher of mine. WE have yoga one mile in town as well in case you want a local activity as well as the Mono Indian museum is catty corner behind us in 1/10 mile.
For more questions about our area, check yosemite scenic by way on the internet.
Look forward to hosting you. Liza and Mike

Owner info

Seasons Vacation Retreats LLC

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We bought this property to Vacation and eventually retire in Yosemite / Bass Lake area.. In the meantime we share it with others for their retreats and vacations when we are at our other lovely vacation homes. WE are professional Retreat Teachers in the Healing Arts and medical field, owning 6 peaceful retreat rentals at spots we love. Liza's private practice is in psychology counseling and Naturopathic Medicine/Nutrition and is also a Dental Hygienist. Mike is a world class Yoga teacher. Our passion is nature and homes, design and architecture. We love to make our homes available for others to enjoy and take very good care of them, with caretakers available to meet the needs of our homes and renters, as well as being hands on ourselves, at getting new furnishings, planting flowers in Yosemite or tropicals in Our La Jolla and Hawaii locations, as well we overseeing the cleanliness and upkeep of the home. I personally do the bookings and helping our vacationers with their reservations so we can work with each person or family and give special terms based on needs and budgets. Come see us at our VRBO in La Jolla, CA, Hawaii and Yosemite. Liza and Mike

Why the Owner Chose North Fork, CA, USA:
Minutes from Bass Lake and the beauty of the Sierra Nevada leading into Yosemite National Park. One mile to town for gas, groceries, post office, coffee and shops yet in the mountains bordering nearby river and swimming, easy to get to. Three local waterfalls and three lakes, 2 miles, 5 miles and 12 miles from house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Bass Lake nearby and just a short drive into Yosemite National Parks South gates, in 26 minutes posted by renters on our reviews and our experience also. Many amenities, stores, bar and grill, dining out, post office one mile from house.. Close to Badger Pass and China Peak ski areas. Three local waterfalls in 7 to 10 miles, Cascadel, Angel Falls and Whiskey falls offering local hiking and off the beaten road track no crowds or less as known more to locals who know the inside and outside of the Yosemite by way.
