One-of-a-kind home built entirely out of local slate and stone. The house has been completely remodeled with new appliances and furnishings. The house sits directly above Redinger Lake, and is in close proximity to Bass Lake and just 38 miles to Yosemite's Southgate! Just up the road 4 miles is the beginning of the Sierra Scenic Byway, a beautiful 100 drive right through the heart of the Sierras. See scenic granite domes, lakes, vistas, wildlife, almost zero traffic, hiking, without any crowds!
The house is a one bedroom with a sofa bed (w/a comfy memory foam mattress) in the living room as well as a single fold out cot. A rotating fireplace sits in the center of the house and can rotate between the living room, dining area, or the bedroom to heat that room. The one-of-a-kind shower reveals a 180 degree glass window view of the surrounding forest and lake. The kitchen has been fully remodeled with brand new appliance and granite counters. The slate deck is a great place to sit in the morning with a cup of coffee or at night while watching the sunset & countless stars. You've never stayed in home like this before! For a video tour go to YouTube & key in 'Redinger Retreat Rock House'. There is a dock for your boat that may be made available upon request.
You will have full access to everything in the house. If prearranged you may have "shared" access to one tie up at our dock. There is also a kayak that may be made available.
If I am available, I can help you with directions to sights in the area and outdoor activities nearby. I know of some mountain biking trails nearby, and would love to join guests on a ride if they would like!
There's no public transportation here in the mountains. If you plan on driving down our private road to our dock, you'll need a 4x4 truck or 4x4 SUV.
This house is perfect for the adventurer! Located at the exact center of California, this house is the perfect for folks who want get away from the literal & figurative noise in life & the city. Relax & do nothing, or hike, bike, boat & explore! Take a drive up the Sierra Scenic Byway, just 4 miles from the house. On Youtube key in "drive the Sierra Vista Byway" to see what a gem the Scenic Byway is.
FYI, all potential guests are required to email to us a photo of their drivers license, your home address, personal email address, and cell phone number.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests have access to the entire home. Occasionally we allow access to our personal tandem kayak if requested in advance. You will also have access to our private patio and dark, unless we rented the rock house and the main house simultaneously. During those times renters in the main house have priority to the private dock. Dual renters have sold them occurred.

If I am available, I can help you with directions to sights in the area and outdoor activities nearby. I know of some biking/hiking trails nearby, and if I've got our boat in the water, & I have some free time, it's not unusual for us to take you out for an hour or so on our fabulous lake.
Otros aspectos destacables
On holiday weekends there is a 3 day minimum stay. This is an "unplugged" experience, cell signal is weak, no internet & very remote home. Who wants to be bothered with emails or phone calls on vacation anyways? Guests requiring Internet can access at our main home. Ample cell signal is just up the road for those who "need" to use the phone. Since this is not the "city", doors should be closed at all times to keep wildlife outside (i.e. Rodents, deer, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, birds, bats, Bobcats, & cows). All renters will be asked for a photo of their driver license, email address, & home address to finalize rental.
Absolutely NO SMOKING. No open fires or fireworks. This home is in the Sierra Forest & there's extreme fire hazard. Please be quiet between 10pm & 7am. We only have a couple of neighbors, but sound travels well here & the neighbors live here for the tranquil environment, so be respectful of that. There is no internet & cell reception is poor. All guests will be asked for a copy of dr license or passport, home address, personal email address, & cell phone # upon acceptance of reservation. Failure to comply with house rules may result in forfeiture of fees.
