What Are All Those Little Buildings On Highway 41 In Oakhurst?

OAKHURST – We’ve received quite a few inquiries about the little buildings filling the lot on the west side of Highway 41 just south of 47th Place Carpet One in Oakhurst.

The folks at the Tenaya Lodge in Fish Camp are happy to announce that the little “cabins” are waiting to be transported to their new home on a 30-acre site between the north side of the Lodge, and the pond across the highway from the Fish Camp Post Office.

“We are so excited to bring 50 new modern two-bedroom ‘Explorer Cabins’ onto the Tenaya Lodge property,” says Kala Linck, Marketing Manager at the Tenaya Lodge.

“The additional acres are filled with sugar pines and incense cedars. The cabins will be nestled in the forest surrounding a beautiful alpine meadow, Big Creek and the pond. It’s truly a gorgeous piece of property.”

Kala provided photos of the inside of the 675-square-foot cabins showing the different lay-outs, including one version that includes bunk beds in the second bedroom.

In addition, all the cabins come equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, fireplace and even a deck – for relaxing after a long day of exploring Yosemite National Park and the Sierra National Forest.

On the site itself, there will be a loop for driving and parking, and trails up to the main lodge are being added.

In addition to the cabins, there will be a small “clubhouse” with daily breakfast for the cabin guests, board games, and gathering areas.

The cabins are being built by Irontown Homes in Utah, and are stored on the lot in Oakhurst while the site in Fish Camp is being prepared.

In the late fall or early winter, the little cabins will make the trip up Highway 41 to the Lodge to be set up, and it is expected that they will be ready to host guests in the spring of 2019.

Those with curious minds are invited to drive on up and see for themselves. Kala says there is a model cabin already set up at the Tenaya, and you are welcome to stop in and take a tour.

Project planners say all the environment impact studies have been done and correct permitting has been acquired to make as little impact on the surrounding forest as possible. In addition, the cabins were built off-site to lessen the impact that construction can cause to wildlife in the area.

The Tenaya Lodge is located at 1122 Highway 41 in Fish Camp, Calif.
