Why Betsy and Pete chose Yosemite National Park

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting my family and friends stay in this wonderful place. It is very comfortable and relaxing. The bed was very cozy. It was so cozy that we didn't want to get up in the morning. Again, thank you for the very cozy house. I hope we can come again.

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!

Great stay in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house. It is spacious, clean and had everything we needed including bath, dishwasher, laundry soap, coffee filters, spices. It was very comfortable to come back to after hiking all day. The beds are comfie and the water is hot. The kitchen is well appointed. Our only complaint is it is a lot of mountainous driving to get anywhere (Yosemite valley particularly), but this is your closest option to the valley if you don't stay there in one of the lodges. Obviously this is not a fault of the property. Just good to know. Would definitely recommend this property!

Lovely jump off point for Yosemite adventures

  • 5 of 5

Great large house ideal for a group. Kitchen is well stocked and meant for large scale cooking as is adjoining dining room. Large couches encourage group activities. Two queen bed rooms and one

Large bedroom with Queen and two twins. Door on master bath would be A Nice addition but spa bath nice and powerful after a day of hiking. Highly recommend. Near Glaciar Point and 30 minutes to valley.

Old and tired - renter beware

  • 2 of 5

Great location inside the park. We have rented many, many vacation homes over the years and this was the first time we have been disappointed. Needs a lot of updates. We were told someone from mgt company would be by to check on us the first night, but no one came by or called. We had a list of issues to discuss with them. King bed mattress was higher at feet than head, broken lamp in bedroom, greasy cabinets, old appliances, Internet not available during prime time, Closets in Bedrooms were locked, poor lighting in living room and bedroom. Customer service from the owner was poor. With a little effort and some friendliness from the owner this house could be awesome! Will not return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing our home. We appreciate our guests feedback. We are glad that you agreed with many others that it is in a great location for visiting Yosemite. We are saddened that you were disappointed with your stay. This is not a typical reaction from most guests as we have a rating of 4.7 based on 77 reviews. We wish you had contacted us early in you stay about your issues so we could have tried to address them. We are not sure what the problem with the king bed is, but we will look into it. Can you please let us know which lamp it was that was broken as housekeeping did not report any breakage and subsequent guests did not complain about a lamp that did not work. As to the internet, we explain to guests that satellite internet is for checking emails or looking up web sites only. To make sure that all guests have access to the internet, we have limited the time it is available to early morning and early evening hours. This information is available in a binder next to the coffee maker. Sorry about the locked closets in two of the bedrooms, but this is where we store supplies and personal items. Each bedroom does have dressers for your use while staying. Can you please explain the "poor lighting" in the living room and bedroom. Was the lighting too bright or too dim? Each of the switches has sliders so that the lighting can be adjusted to your liking.
