The Pines Resort at Bass Lake was great! I would go again anytime of year!!!
My boyfriend and I found a great deal on LivingSocial and went for it. It was a great get away. The resort was way better than we expected. The appliances were a little dated but the size of the cabin, views and setting made up for it. The room we had came w/ a full kitchen. The resort is 19 miles south of the Yosemite park entrance. About a 45 min drive due to some mountain switch backs. This was not a scary drive.
Versatile- great for couples, groups of friends and quaint for families.
Rooms are mostly 2 story cabins with a loft (great for kids to explore) can sleep up to 6 if you get the loft beds. Larger cabins are available and a hotel style building with more room.
Food- Ducey's on the Lake has tasty food. But if you are on a budget like me I cant afford to eat there every night. BUT worth a visit and the service is so friendly. There is a really good pizza joint next door (Excellent pizza) and a local general store. Bring your own liquor if you plan to drink (There is also a small bar. I did not visit though because I was too tired from hiking in Yosemite)
The kitchen in the cabin came with dishes and silver wear but no sponge to wash them.
There is wifi but being in the mountains makes the receptions cut in and out. But you aren't there to check emails anyway.
Cell phone reception is bad. But it's bad in the park as well. Blame it on the mountains.
The small town and lake have been hit a little harder with the poor economy and warm weather. Water levels are low and there are not a lot of shops.
I think the PROS out weigh the CONS by far!
If you are looking for a cute, fun, cozy place to stay just outside Yosemite CA I would recommend Pines Resort all the way!
