Why Betsy and Pete chose Yosemite Area

Imagine this. Living in a forest of trees; surrounded by Yosemite National Park. Quiet, uncrowded, peaceful. Look above at night and explore the stars of the Milky Way stretched before you in the darkening sky. This is what makes Yosemite West a very special place to stay inside the gates of the Park.

What makes this house unique

Pine Arbor Retreat has a spacious living room in a quiet setting with forest views. Sit back in front of a wood burning fire place with book in hand. Cozy! Out on the deck, drink in hand, and watch the frolicking squirrels and mischievous jays as the setting sun reddens the skies. Rest comfortably at night as you dream of the days adventures.

Beautiful house in the middle of the forest!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all our expectations! It's really big and has all the luxury you need. The location is perfect if you want to explore Yosemite NP. The hosts are very friendly and give you lots of information. When there is a problem (we had an empty battery) they help you right a way. I would definitely stay here again!

It was a very nice structural house in a great location in the park.

  • 2 of 5

Our experience was a bit disappointing.

The house needed a good spring cleaning. I could understand cob webs on the outside if the house, but not on the inside family room windows. The dust was thick on the bedroom lamp bulbs. The decks were not cleaned off, so that you could not use the tables or chairs. We did call and ask about the deck furniture getting cleaned off. The owners sent someone. They came and used up all the paper toweling and left us with none. Not a napkin or paper towel. There was no dish washer soap to speak of. We took a 45 minute trip to the closest grocery store. I picked up a throw blanket in the family room to find it full of long blond notted hair. It appeared they needed a new cleaning service. We found sheets in the dryer with a wet towel wrapped inside the sheet.The dinning room table had not been cleaned off of food particles. The rest of the house was clean. They did give us clean bathrooms and bedrooms . Plenty of towels and clean linen. Unfortunately I would not recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: We apologize for the experience you had during your stay. This is not a typical occurrence, as you can see from prior reviews. Unfortunately, inexperienced cleaners were brought on line prematurely by the manager. They should not have used the paper goods that were provided for your use to clean the decks for you. At the very least, they should have replaced them before leaving. The pollen on the deck is often a problem at this time of year. It is an especially unique situation now after the record rains we experienced this year, following years of drought. Again, we are sorry for your experience.

Nice house in a beautiful location

The house is neat and well maintained. The location is minutes from Glacier Point, 30 minutes from the Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove. Very convenient.

Wonderful house, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We rent this house to spent the school winter break in the snow with a group of friends and the kids. The kitchen is well equipped (nice set of chopping knives), the living room is fantastic for everyone to hang out and still not feel claustrophobic. The house's backyard has an awesome sliding hill, with a small creek, logs, and it's a lot of fun for kids and adults.

We found the house warm and toasty upon our arrival, so thank you for that!

I would recommend this house to a friend and will definitely come back.

The perfect place to stay in Yosemite!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed at many vacation homes through VRBO, and Pine Arbor is definitely tops all the rest! If you're going to stay in Yosemite for the winter or summer, Pine Arbor has everything you could hope for in a rental. The owners went above and beyond to make sure that my family was comfortable and safe as we encountered a winter snow storm that dumped quite a bit of snow all over Yosemite. Just a very short drive from Pine Arbor brings you to Badger Pass, and the Valley is also very close. Just bring your food and firewood and the fabulous owners supply all the rest. I hope to return again to this beautiful retreat!

Perfect location & tons of space. Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here for a few days to enjoy winter in Yosemite. Location couldn't be much better - about a 20-30 min drive from Yosemite Valley. The house had a ton of space to spread out. Breakfast nook and formal dining room as well. Bedrooms were all good size with a great master suite. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to enjoy home-cooked meals instead of paying high prices at places in the Valley. Would definitely recommend the Pine Arbor Retreat for families or a few couples. You will not be disapppionted. Thanks Betsy & Pete!!
