About This Listing
We are very excited to welcome guests to The Lake House....
All the fun and beauty of the Sierra Foothills awaits you. The fresh spring air and beautiful spring blossoms are every where . The Bald Eagles soar over the lake and you can watch them catching their breakfast. You might catch a glimpse of deer passing by your deck while you drink your morning coffee. And if you are lucky you will see the river otters playing in our cove.
Yosemite National Park with all it's splendor is a short 90 minute drive to the Valley Floor. Here is where you will find the visitors center and the trail heads, and also view some of the majestic waterfalls and granite walls.
You also might want to stop by Columbia where you will be taken back in time to the year 1852 and experience what life was like during the California Gold Rush, or visit the quaint antique shops and restaurants in Jamestown just minutes away. Murphys is also very close if wine tasting is your pleasure. Ironstone Winery is amazing with it's spring flower display.
If Gambling interests you try your luck at Black Oak Casino, a short 10 minute drive up the hill. Their 5 star Seven Sisters Restaurant is a fabulous place to have a first class dining experience.
While staying with us you will have your own private floor of our home. Complete with bath, entrance, and deck . While there is a small microwave and coffee pot in the suite, we are sorry but there are no cooking facilities available, but you might enjoy an evening camp fire complete with marshmallows (weather permitting).
We love meeting people from all over the world, everyone is welcome... Can't wait to meet you!
Lower level, Private entry, own deck with seating area, campfire when weather permits.
We will be as accessible or inaccessible as guests desire.
Besides the beautiful sunsets and watching all the wildlife on the lake, our neighborhood consists of other large single family homes on one side and a forest on the other.
We are 3 miles to downtown Sonora, public transit is limited in our small rural community.
The $15 extra person charge per night is charged for all children 2 years and older. 2 night minimum stay for parties of 5, and all holiday weekends.
Guests will have access to the whole lower level of our home. Including the lower deck. They will also have access to a paddle boat and a canoe when weather and lake conditions permit.
Interaction with Guests
As much and as little as they desire.
Our home, while feeling very remote and close to nature, is actually minutes away from dining (fancy to fast food), shopping (grocery, small town and even a few big box) and very much central to all the activities Tuolumne County has to offer.
Access to limited public transit is a few miles from our house. There is Tuolumne County transit which operates small buses and also YART (Yosemite Area Rapid Transit) which in the summer offers transit to Yosemite Park (this is a slow way to get to and from Yosemite though).
We are a non smoking home, but you can smoke outside on the deck
While we love pets we ask that you leave yours at home (no dogs please)
Words cannot describe how wonderful Sue and Kent are. Their home is incredible, clean, organized, and in a great location. Sue and Kent are extremely friendly and helpful, and Kent makes THE BEST blueberry muffins I have ever had. We had an amazing time and will definitely come back.
This was the best AirBnB experience possible. Kent and Sue are very welcoming and they make you feel like you're at home.
The place is incredible, the room is large and very cozy, with a lot of snacks and drinks available. Moreover the room has its own bathroom which allows you to be independent.
I would love to stay longer.
Everything was Perfect
The House the hosts the muffins ( Thx Kent) the lake the Fire and the boat Trip!
Kent et Sue sont des personnes charmantes et très accueillantes. Leur maison est très jolie, confortable, propre et offre une splendide vue sur le lac. Nous pouvons garer la voiture sans difficulté, à proximité et en sécurité. La chambre est immense, les lits très confortables, le frigo est rempli et un joli panier garni nous attend à notre arrivée ! Le matin la vue est très belle sur le lac avec les oiseaux qui chantent. Nous avons un étage pour nous avec le balcon et un accès direct au jardin. Kent et Sue sont très gentils, ils ont préparé la barque, le feu et les chamallow ! Nous regrettons d'être resté une seule nuit ! Y aller sans hésiter !!
After a long hiking tour in Yosemite we arrived late at the Lake House - and were heartly welcomed and immediately felt like at home. Altough staying only one night and morning Kent prepared tasty blueberry muffins for breakfast and offered us to use the canoe to explore the lake and river. This was one of the highlights on our trip through California.
Kent and Sue are very nice and helpful.
The house is clean and has an amazing view to the lake.
About the Host, Kent And Sue
Hi, We are Kent and Sue, We live in beautiful Sonora, California, Gateway to The Southern Mines.. with our very old lovable springier spaniel Baily and our son Scott . Sonora is about 70 minutes from Yosemite National Park. Our home is right on Phoenix Lake. The bald eagles soar past our windows and deer families walk silently on the trail by our decks. I wish I could say the Canada Geese are as quiet, but they are beautiful. Nothing like waking up to fresh mountain air. We built our timber frame home ourselves (with a little help from some very talented carpenters) a little over 3 years ago in the craftsman style. We love sharing our home with friends and family, especially our two darling grandchildren Aubrey and Carter. We enjoy traveling and meeting people from all over the world which becoming an AirBNB host has enabled us to do. Hope you will consider staying with us "On the Lake"
