Comfortable Beautiful House
We love to cook and be comfortable on our vacations. I picked this house and have visited several times both summer and winter. I was referred by my realtor who also vacations here. The granite counters are beautiful and we love the slate shower feeling of rock and stone in the area. Spacious with vaulted high ceilings and fans in every room and AC so we never get hot. The stars on the deck at night are amazing. There was two King beds memory foam and all beds had toppers so we were able to have more adults and extra den and beds for kids to kick back and watch tv or hang out while I cooked. The kitchen connects with the dining room and living room while cooking, with a serving glass extra counter so we could pass out the food plates and my kids serve us! The house was very clean and had large rattan mats which we like a lot as when we were here in the past the wood was nice but exposed so it makes it easier for us to take off our shoes. The master has a serene window of many manzanita trees. We had privacy and yet were less than a mile to the ranger station and we swam every day at the best local swimming hole the owners neighbors share with the locals as well as is a national US spot for the State Loggers Jamboree in july which we have come to a few times and then found this home only 3/10 mile from that river. We like to hike and swim at bass lake, and the grill there is excellent so we had the best of both worlds. The park is only 1/2 hour to the south entrance and the train is before that. We go up east to the Yosemite Scenic by way loop, as my husband likes all the off the beat rivers and redinger lake for less crowded areas as well as we love the park, both the inside borders and this gem, area called Yosemite scenic by way loop which also leads to mammoth pools and hot springs easily. One has to educate one self as there is so much to do as well as Shaver Lake, and two other parks Kings Canyon and The Seqoia park. The south entrance we enjoyed the most as you dont have to drive far to the Giant Grizzy sequoias, and we also enjoyed the Shopping in Oakhusrt has a huge grocery store as well as a market one mile from the house. We have become friends with the owners and staff and come often. I wrote our review write away as we do on our way out and saw the previous review and felt to let others know this is not a dusty cabin but a pretty well kept mountain home modest, nice beds and furnishings, a good desk! great internet and cable. ADORABLE.Brenda M.

Secluded and private.
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. There was plenty of sleep space for our group of 6 and our Yorkie. It's a great location that isn't too far from Bass Lake where we rented a boat for the day and about a 1.5 hr drive to Yosemite Valley. The swimming hole across the street was a great place to go for a dip and cool off. I loved sitting out on the porch in the morning with my coffee as the sun was coming us and again enjoying the serenity in the evening. Some of the information that was given to is prior to check in was incorrect but we managed just fine. Steve, the caretaker, luckily met us at just the right time being that our cellular service was extremely limited. We did attempt to call him during our stay and we're disappointed that he never returned our call. For those of you, who use hairdryers, be sure to bring one from home as there isn't any at the house - my fault for not bringing mine. We also brought movies to watch in the evenings but never found the DVD player nor could we get the cable to work on the TV - no biggie cuz we brought books and board games to entertain us in the evenings. Don't forget bug spray as the mosquitos are out in the evening. Over all, nice place and we really enjoyed our stay and vacation!Marlene R.

AMAZING weekend getaway
After just moving to CA from NYC, Liza's Bass Lake house was the perfect weekend getaway from the big city. The check-in/check-out process was seamless. Liza and her house manager Steve were friendly, attentive, professional and informative during the process leading up to our arrival and were accessible via phone/text throughout our stay if we needed anything. They were even kind enough to push back our check-out time to help accommodate us after a travel delay caused us to arrive a lot later than we planned. The house was clean, well-equipped with everything we needed, safe (alarm system was a huge plus), and in a perfect location! The property was quiet and scenic and a short drive to the beautiful Bass Lake! We had breakfast on the beautiful porch overlooking the breath-taking mountains; hiked on the gorgeous Bass Lake trails along side incredible waterfalls; cooked in the amazing, new kitchen and just had an all-around perfect weekend. We could not have asked for a better weekend and hope to come back to visit! Thank you Liza for everything!!!Anna and Joe F.

Family Weekend Getaway!!
My family stayed at Yosemite Elegant - Bass Lake Area Home for two nights last weekend. The caretakers were wonderful, they took the time to welcome us and answer all our questions upon arrival. He also tried to help us when we lost WIFI and called him the next day. The home was clean and very spacious yet cozy. Cleanliness is my number one priority when looking for a place to stay because I have young children. Beds are placed very strategically throughout the home to accommodate a large group. The kids had lots of fun choosing where to sleep. Amenities throughout the house are adequate. All you need to bring is food/groceries if cooking there. The home is not too far from Oakhurst if you need groceries, gas etc. We were hoping to explore the surrounding areas and play ground behind the home on foot but it was raining. All in all, we had a great time and will most definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay!Karen K.
