Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi!



Just wanted to send a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your Cedar Chalet. We found the house in excellent condition and a perfect accommodation for the five of us. We loved the peace and quiet of the evenings, and were very thankful that we didn't opt to stay in the Village - too busy for us!



We had one day of serious hiking ... my husband, daughter, and niece hiked the trail of Yosemite Falls... they made it safely to the top to

take in the view and savor that feeling of a major accomplishment!

Our niece's husband and I found some "easy" trails to explore and really enjoyed ourselves. Our timing was perfect for this visit - plenty of water to show off the splendor of the falls, and beautiful summer flowers all along the way. And, perfect weather... which allowed us to see the most amazing stars on our evening "Stargazing"

tour at Glacier Point.



One evening, we decided to watch the sunset from the fire ranger station near your chalet - but we never reached our destination - we encountered one of your huge park bears - right in the middle of the trail! Everyone hightailed it out of there - I did pause long enough to snap a picture though - to prove the event to our friends!



So, we thank you for sharing your little corner of paradise.. and perhaps we will return at some point in the future - we would like to share this experience with our son, his wife, and our new grandchild some day... her pregnancy is the reason they could not travel with us ... but we all agree that the sacrifice will be well worth it!



Hope that your summer goes well, and that you are enjoying each day.



Sincerely, Dolly Canterbury

Lovely home. Great landlord!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a family reunion in mid-July. The location is super convenient to Glacier Point (don't miss the sunset!) and Yosemite Valley. The home is nicely appointed, has all the creature comforts you could want--spa, sauna (for the winter), pool table, BBQ grill--plus large bedrooms and great kitchen. Landlord, Eric, answered our questions quickly and was easy to work with.

Will definitely stay here again when in Yosemite West.

Nice place in Yosemite away from the crowds

  • 4 of 5

My husband and our two kids stayed in the Storybook Chalet July 19-21. It was easy to get to and a great location for us, as we visited the park in the mornings and then came back to the house for lunch, and then headed back out to the park around 4 after the crowds had gone. It is roomy and the deck is nice ~ a great place to sit and enjoy the trees as you grill and eat outdoors. There is a nice hot tub on the deck but we didnt have time to use it. We really enjoyed the updated kitchen and all the tools/utensils there were! It was a perfect place for us.

Great house in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful house. It was easy to find, right by the road to Glacier Point and only 25 minutes to the valley. It was nice to stay away from the congestion in the valley. We went up to Glacier Point twice to watch the sunset. It was well worth the drive.

The layout of the house was great. The open floor plan was wonderful for hanging out together. The pool table was a hit as was the hot tub after a long day of hiking in the park.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook for a large group. Watching the sunset from the deck was beautiful! We saw deer roaming the area most nights.

There was plenty of room to hang out together, but also enough room to have your own space if you needed it. The beds were super comfy. Our only recommendation for improvement would be to replace the air mattresses. They both had several holes and had already been ducked tape in numerous places.

All in all a great place to stay. We hope to return someday and would recommend this property to anyone visiting Yosemite.

Very nice property. Great Chalet.

  • 4 of 5

Very well layed out home. Pool table was great amenity. Kitchen had every possible dish, pan, glasses, appliances and silverware and cooking utensil. Good location in area of other nice rentals of higher end properties.

Kitchen was also well equipped with dish soap, cleaning supplies, spices, paper towels, foil and food wrap. Laundry was a great positive touch also.

The outside Weber grill on deck was nice and functional, but in need of some new burners, flavor bars and electric starter. We had to clean it up a bit and re-adjust flavor bars that were not positioned correctly. It started with a butane lighter, but it was a bit difficult due to poor condition of burners.

All in all we thought the place was great and had a nice family atmosphere. A place most people would be very comfortable in about any time of year. We would recommend to our friends if going to Yosemite.
