You'll stay in a large log home of rustic beauty that can accommodate 12 people. It sits on 11 wooded acres and features a barn and corrals for 10 horses. Guidebooks by two local horse women – Central Sierra Nevada Horse Trails - give details on wonderful day rides in our part of the Sierra. Or come hike, bike or ski, depending on your preference and the season. When you return from your day, relax on the veranda and cook up your favorite barbequed dishes. Take an evening stroll in our nature area by the seasonal creek. It's the best of the backcountry combined with easy living with all the amenities.
The whole house, horse corrals and barn are yours to enjoy. The house is equipped with a flat screen and BluRay, Apple TV, surround sound system, wireless internet, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, washer/dryer, BBQ and outdoor furniture, very nice linens, and other amenities.
We are reachable by phone and text, but otherwise are not present. However, there is a caretaker on the property. If you bring your horse to ride in the national forest, we suggest you contact Ann Bates or Sherry Antill of Central Sierra Nevada Horse Trails - two local horsewomen who have written guidebooks on riding in the central Sierra Nevada.
Our home is in the foothills of the Sierra, set among pine and oak trees. It is quiet but not completely isolated. The property is two miles from the town of North Fork, seven miles from Bass Lake, and a 45-minute drive from the south entrance of Yosemite National Park. The National Scenic Byway passes within a mile. There is great hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding and skiing. If you bring your own horse to ride in Central Sierras, check out (URL HIDDEN) for detailed information.
No public transit. There is plenty of parking for both autos/trucks and trailers. The access road is a dirt road. If you're bringing horses , you're limited to no more than a 3-horse trailer to get up the driveway. Mountain biking can be had right from our property without car transport.
NOTE: If you bring horses up, there is an additional charge of $20 each per day. There are corrals and a tack room for your use. We have bales of alfalfa available for purchase if needed at $25 each.
For human types, with advance notice we can at extra charge provide in-home cooking by skilled chefs, featuring locally grown organic produce and sustainably raised meat.
We don't live in the immediate area, so we don't anticipate direct contact with our guests. However, there is a property caretaker and a manager that are available.
It is set up for horses, so please do bring them. This is definitely a No Smoking place. In fact, we prefer guests not smoke outdoors either due to extreme fire danger. Please treat our home with the same care and respect as your own.
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.
