A spacious home with 2 available bedroom units, each with its own private bath, just 2 miles from the South Gate to Yosemite National Park -- delightful, architecturally-designed spaces. Setting is just off main highway to Park and adjacent to Sierra National Forest. Our house grew from a simple wood frame cabin (circa 1946) to a spacious mountain retreat on 3 levels - a mixture of contemporary classic with 'tones' of yesteryear.
Our residence is spacious, has lots of light, lovely outdoor spaces -- patio, balcony on the 'national forest' side of the house, and additional patio and hammock in the front yard. There is a shared family room, with TV/DVD and lots of guidebooks - with information about surrounding places of interest. Our desire is to have your experience be warm and inviting - and for you to feel that you are a welcome guest/traveler.
Each guest, in addition to his/her room and bathroom, is welcome to use the family room and outdoor spaces. Breakfast is served in the dining room each morning. Coffee/tea are available each morning.
As experienced hikers, Ron and Bette are both avid "Yosemite Lovers" and are quite knowledgeable about the Park and surrounding areas. We can provide lots of ideas and information about places nearby -- including some 'off the beaten track' options to enjoy!
Fish Camp is just outside Yosemite National Park's southern entrance surrounded by Sierra National Forest - located at 5,000 ft. elevation -- which means cool summer mornings and evenings and lovely daytime temps.
10 miles south is Bass Lake -- with fishing, boating, swimming -
2 miles from horseback riding, and short hikes to waterfalls, etc.
2 miles from South Gate of Yosemite
3+ miles to Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias (largest trees in the world!)
12 miles south is Oakhurst - shops, grocery stores, antique shops, art galleries
6 miles to Yosemite's village of Wawona - horseback riding, stagecoach rides, golfing, dining, pioneer history center
MANY restaurant options within a few miles - some within a mile -- we have menus of most locations.
There is limited bus service from Fresno International Airport to Fish Camp. But best option - and the one with most flexibility - is driving your own vehicle. There is a bus service (YARTS) from nearby in Fish Camp to Yosemite Valley for those who choose not to drive, but having your own transportation will provide more flexibility.
In Yosemite Valley, free shuttle bus service is excellent for visiting various sites. Once you're in the valley, hop on a bus to see the sights!
Fish Camp is at 5,000' elevation -- which means it has 'seasons' -- mornings and evenings are cool - mid 40's to 50's - even in the summertime - mid day is delightful (70's) - ALWAYS bring a jacket and prepare to dress in layers. Fall and Spring are cool (and beautiful, too!) -- In the late fall, winter and early spring, be prepared for showers and -- snow! If you travel in winter, you are advised to carry tire chains or have 4-wheel drive. The National Park is strict about chain control if snow is forecast.
In addition to The Bubble Room -- actually a suite -- a spacious bedroom and adjoining sitting room, and the private bath with double sinks/vanity area and separate shower/tub room, guests will have breakfast in the family dining room, and will also have use of the common area on the main floor, complete with TV/DVD player and books/pamphlets/information about Yosemite and surrounding area.

Bette and Ron have been residents and lovers of Yosemite area for more than 50 years. We have hiked, backpacked and climbed peaks both inside and outside the national park. Ron is an accomplished photographer and retired architect - and Bette's background is as a Silicon Valley Human Resources professional. We love sharing the delight of being in the heart of the mountains with all our friends -- old and new!
