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!!!
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days. Liza and Steve were so flexible even when we had to show up a day late. The house was wonderfully prepared for way more than just us two. The trees and views were breath taking and we would love to come back. Highly highly recommend.
Beautiful home. If you want to get out of Los angels, Frenso, Sacramento, San francisco and have easy access up the mountain, this south side, Middle of California Yosemite Scenic by Way provides all the amenities. Easy and Quck access to swimming in Hot weather known in yosemite in the summer to be a mix of heat, waterfalls, Huge Granite Moutains, and now SWIMMING, becuase outside the park is Bass Lake, within 5 miles of this house and 26 miles to the south entrance yet we are the park, just outside gates to the National entrance. This is where the water is accessible and we have the back side of yosemite, the BY WAY with access to cooler fishing and roads on 222. We stayed 2 nights and had stayed the year prior 5 nights and will be back August when kids are in school to do some more hiking when the kids wont be whining to spend the whole time at the picture water swimming hold. Our kids used to get hot , sweaty and whine and complain after a few hours inside the park in summer so we decided to get a house so everyone could be Happy. The house is very comfortable and has good feng shui, which means it flows and the Vaulted ceilings of cedar with Fans and AC look directly out to the moutains so you are not trapped in a side remote dusty cabin but a nice home with upgrades that connect everyone inside. The kitchen meets the dining room with black granite a gas range with serving glass shelves to set your plates on whie cooking and serving creating a dining experience to be in the kitchen, cook and talk and meet your family and the table, eat and be in the views the whole time. Not stuck inside without comfort as the kitchen is upgraded and has all oak roller cabinets easy to get all cookware and stainless steel appliances and windows out back as well as front. My kitchen is not even this nice, The comort of a Temperpedic mattess in the master king and lots of beds for everyone with toppers even in the living room so the kids can stretch out and watch tv and not worry about the velvet couches, although they provide a full living room around the vaulted cedar ceilings and high windows to either entertain or meditate in, lots of cute knick knacks, TV cable, upgraded desks and glass top tables and expensive pottery barn desk with drawers and gass top also. WE come back yearly and the owner asked us to post a real review since the last reviewer slammed them with lies to get a deposit after breaking the chair to the new table outside, that I know is TEAK and hard to break and then say this place has bad beds. its has mats and topper on the kids beds and the adult beds have matreseses, and comfort, not on review in the owners other sites every said the beds were not comfortable and since we book with the owner direct and know they are on all websites, we developed a realationship where we know and trust we get a great place, a low price compared to other houses near the park this nice and we take good care of things here as if it is our own home and would pay if we broke anything, as we know what the owners go through and their furnishings are nice! It is a 4 to 5 star to us, 3 star to 4 for others who want the RITZ on a small budget , but we know the quality as we also own a home and a vacation home so we know when we are getting a good deal. The staff maids are clean and nice and in no way is stripping ones bed or gathering ones trash cleaning, as there is wood floors thought and linens and towels as well as furniture in here to take care of. High ceilings are not cheap they are have cedar lined, When you come to a 1/2 million dollar house you know what it is is, You dont bring 10 people and take advantage of the owner and then try to ruin their business when you dont respect their contract. We had to speak out as friend that visit and pay every year, although we love the place we feel its been misrepresented and were happy to post for the owners our great experience with them, the location , the locals, the river , the rangers one mile away and the respect to take out your trash from bears and moutains lions as you duty as a citizen not thinking its someone else trash becuase you rent, this is the mountains keep your trash in the park and around the park in this homes under control as their is no trash man truck. The owners offer for dump fee to take your trash and no one wants someone else stinky diapers to wrap up and take in their car if you dont.
when will people get a clue about the resources, the moutains and our arrogance in our culture of abusing nature through our demands for someone else to take on our toilet bowels, trash and think you can throw anything in the well, the septic or that your trash is going into nature. We recycle and that is all the owners ask which is to live as we all do esepcially up here where you drop things to re cycle and dont bring up toxic trash to thrown into the yosemite. WE love it here and will be back yearly. Im the lady who does inspections at the hospital and put the tags on the kitchen cabinets for retners to put things back in the same place but sometimes renters turn the place inside out for the owner, so I offer to do this and we even get a free trip by helping them. Reviews from come back good traverse means more than a one time user who is looking for something they dont respect already here in sacred yosemite, WE give the owners, the house, the owners and the access to town, water, people and events, and bass lake a 5 star thumbs up and we dont live here!
Thank you Liza and Mike and Steve and Maids , we know what it takes truly.! we own property too!
