The culmination of 64 years of family history, Moosehead Lodge (est. 2002) provides a restful, spacious and luxurious experience for up to 16 guests. Perfect for family reunions, adventure travel, couples trips, girlfriend getaways, retreats, and anyone seeking a setting for an unforgettable vacation.

In our view, "the finer things in life" are more than just things. At Moosehead Lodge, we expand the definition to include mindful mornings spent watching the sun illuminate the Sierras; feasts with your favorite people; long, leisurely days on the lake; and cozy evenings sipping wine by a crackling outdoor fireplace, enfolded in the deep, meaningful quiet of nature.

But the details matter, too, of course. At Moosehead Lodge, you will find careful craftsmanship and rustic elegance—from the spa-like baths and gourmet kitchen, to the soaring ceilings and majestic logs that comprise this dream-come-true cabin.  

Moosehead Lodge is close to Bass Lake, Yosemite National Park and local ski resorts. The cabin has amazing views, spacious living and sleeping areas, fully stocked kitchen, four fireplaces and wrap around porches.

Only 1.5 miles to the lake for easy access but far enough away from the crowds to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Christmas as Moosehead!

We had such a fun Christmas at Moosehead Lodge. We had 4 generations and everyone was very pleased at the accommodations. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, pots, pans and utensils. We didn't even mind getting snowed in for a couple of days because we had everything we needed! Kim communicates well and kept in touch with us before we got there, plus made sure we were doing well before and after the snow storm hit to make sure we safe. She was quick to reply to questions while we got settled. This will go down as one of our family's favorite Christmas memories!

Would love to do it again!

beautiful cabin, Close to hiking trails. We were able to go on 2 trails. Wished we could have stayed longer loved the ample space and loved the fact that there was plenty of towels. Not like hotels that sleep 5 or 6 but only have 4 towels. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. Even has a couple waffle makers, which we used. love the stove, my daughter and I are bakers and I would love to have that kitchen. Kids played games, couch was big enough for the whole family to sit together and watch a movie at the end of the day. The kids got the see a couple deer and turkeys walk very close by. I would definitely love to do it again, it felt very homey. I can go on and on about all the beautiful details but i'm sure nobody wants to read a book about it on reviews. I will say that it Made us want to own it so we can get away every now and then. Thank you Kim! Nancy & Robby

So cozy!

We loved Moosehead Lodge! So cozy, welcoming, and really set-up to make our stay great! Thank you so much for your hospitality! It really was set-up to be so accommodating and we couldn't have asked for a better place for our mini family reunion/holiday celebration. So, thank you!

Lovely Place

This is a lovely place for our group. We really enjoyed using the kitchen and living room. The house stays cool even without AC even if the outside temp is high 90s. It’s in a private location but close enough to Bass Lake and Yosemite. Thank you Kim for generously sharing this property!

Absolutely wonderful!

Kim's cabin was absolutely wonderful! My family (11 in total) fit very comfortably in the cabin with room to spare. The kitchen was amazing to cook in with fantastic appliances and ample cooking equipment. The family room was massive and beautiful with the enormous log walls, wide glass windows, soaring ceiling and epic fireplace complete with a faux moose head (unfortunately no fires are allowed when we visited due to fire risk in the area). The cabin is located pretty close to Bass Lake (we rented a boat one of the days we were there) and it took us about 1.5 hours to get to Yosemite which wasn't bad. The rooms were nice and the beds where very comfortable. Internet was decent, we could stream movies in the evening. All in all, a fantastically beautiful log cabin in a pretty, secluded location that is ideal for a large group vacation. I highly recommend it!

Great Communication

Thanks to Kim for being so communicative. We were delighted to have plenty of room and lots of activities indoors when smoke was too thick to venture out. The toy box was especially appreciated for youngest of our group. Loved the deer and wild turkeys that came right up to the cabin at dusk and dawn.

We would definitely come back!

The house was amazing- very spacious and beautiful. The owner responded very quickly to all of my questions and was very pleasant to deal with. It's a wonderful place to relax with family and friends and a short drive to Miller's landing and many beaches around the lake. We would definitely come back!

We hope to visit again!

We had a wonderful time at Moosehead Lodge. The home was simply beautiful and had plenty of space for our large group. Comfortable beds, spacious kitchen and oversized dining table. We were able to cook many meals and spend time around the table playing games. Some rooms don’t have window coverings so that would be helpful to know in advance, but everything else was great. Kim was always quick to communicate with us and was a pleasure to work with. We hope to visit again!
