The "Bunkhouse" at Sage Flat is a 975sf home, on 5 acres, sharing a border with Inyo National Forest public lands. It has stunning views in all directions, lots of elbow room, privacy, and is very quiet. The house is placed at 5000', is 5 mins from the Olancha Pass Trailhead, 25 mins from Lone Pine, and 45 mins from the closest edge of Death Valley NP. You can make it your base camp and explore or relax in beauty, or stay just a night to break up your drive to Whitney,Yosemite,Mammoth orTahoe.
The house has one main bedroom and bath and two sets of bunkbeds. The bunkbeds are extra long and accommodate adults (one bunk is 3 stories). Stairs access the main living area.
Toegang voor gasten
The property borders public lands (NFS) and just the other side of the fence you can walk/hike wherever your curiosity takes you - without crossing another persons private property. Drive to the end of the dirt road to the Olancha Pass Trailhead and hike a ways, or take your mountain bike up for a ride.

I live nearby, approximately 1 mile. I am most often around during guest stays. I am happy to meet/greet, and give you any tips you may want on sites to see in a 100 mile radius, and restaurants and such in Lone Pine. I am also content to leave you completely alone to your quiet.

After decades of traveling to the Eastern Sierras for adventure and the simple beauties of sitting in nature’s rhythm I moved and made the Sierras my home. Eight years after moving to Sage Flat Road, a few miles from Olancha and Lone Pine, I am happily set into the beauty, remoteness, and awe of the place where the great desert meets the sheer granite face.
As a young boy my grandparents took me time and again for adventure trips up through the Owens Valley into the Eastern Sierras, Yosemite, Death Valley, Bodie State Historic Park, the Bristlecone Pine Forest, and neighboring areas of the Mojave Desert. We always went up the spectacular eastern side of the Sierras and we camped and hiked and explored and talked and created indelible memories. In my teenage years I backpacked in the Sierras on a number of long trips and developed a love for the high country as well.
I am a fourth generation Californian and have spent the majority of my life in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Growing up near the coast I felt a love for the wilderness that is the Pacific Ocean, yet I lived always imagining my next trip to the Eastern Sierras. I attended university and graduate school in Southern California and then for some years worked on Indian Reservations in Northern Nevada and South Dakota. Still, I always came back to the Eastern Sierras in mind, memory, and in person. Now, I spend time making a comfortable "base camp" available for others to enjoy in the same public-lands wilderness.
I enjoy Bluegrass and Americana music, horses and dirt bikes, road trips as well as relaxation in a single spot, creative and interesting conversationalists, good food and a little red wine, and I most appreciate the wild flora and fauna that inhabit the region.
