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.

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!

Descriptions and photos nailed it; exactly what we expected.

  • 4 of 5

The house slept six comfortably and with privacy. Laundry facilities including provided detergent saved on amount of clothing we had to pack. The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked with basic supplies, spices etc, but it could have use another larger frying pan. Everything (with the exception of the grill) was clean and in good shape. Great location for the road up to Glacier Point! The trip to the valley got a bit long after making that drive for 5 days, sometimes twice per day. All in all, we had a great time and were very happy we chose to stay there.

The perfect place to stay for a family vacation to Yosemite National Park

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property inside the park is truly unbeatable. We came on Memorial Day Weekend and having a place inside the confines of Yosemite gave us the advantage of a short drive to the beginning of our hikes each day. The house was very spacious for our family of 6 and the beds were quite comfortable. The wifi inside the house did not work for the duration of our stay, but we were fine with putting our phones down for the weekend to enjoy nature and the company of our family. I would greatly recommend this place for any family planning a trip to Yosemite National Park

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much for your review. It was our pleasure to have you stay with us again. We apologize for the WiFi as our provider, Exede satellite, has had technical problems, as they integrate a new satellite down-link. We look forward to having your family return for another visit in the future.

Everything you need - Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Pine Arbor was the perfect place to stay for our trip to Yosemite. We had two couples, both with babies under 1 year old, stay for 2 nights. The property was very spacious, and well equipped with every amenity that we could need - they even had a Pack n' Play and high chair available to use. It was great to be able to cook meals and pack lunches for the day’s adventures. Huge living room, multiple dining areas, generous master bedroom suite and very nice guest rooms. Super clean, yet very cozy. The owner was very helpful with advice on the park beforehand. Only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer.

Spacious and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Pine Arbor Retreat and we had a wonderful time. My children love the large living room and big blue couch. It's fun to be able to let them run around and utilize the space (they're 4 and almost 2 and we have a small living room at our own house). We also love how close this house is to the attractions in Yosemite. Glacier Point Road was closed on this visit due to snow (beginning of May) but this house is so close when that road is open. Staying here is becoming a tradition for us and we look forward to visiting 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.
