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

A real stretch for 10, but a great location.

  • 3 of 5

9 bath towels, dining for 6 inside and 6 ish outside, not all windows had screens and some fans don't work so can get warm without central air. Pool table was fun but not in the best shape. Grill ran out of propane on first night.

Owner's Response: We apologize about the propane issue. The Housekeeper checked the tank and said that the valve was turned off and the tank still had propane. Sorry that you didn't contact us while you were at the home we could have helped with additional towels and showing you where extra propane was located. We've added additional comments to our check-in and tips sheets to make sure future guests know where to get extra towels and propane.

Lovely Home in Yosemite West

  • 5 of 5

The home was cozy and clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The hot tub was great and having the pool table was fun as well. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us.

Just wow!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately the hot tub was not working during our stay but the owners had pre-warned us of this via email and there were lots of other things to keep us occupied in the chalet such as card games, board games and the pool table. The location was great with easy access to Yosemite valley. The wifi is incredibly patchy and at times we were unable to access the internet but this is expected in the middle of the woods. Would definitely recommend this accommodation as a way of getting the full feel of Yosemite.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the Storybook Chalet. There is sledding out the front door, quick access to Badger Pass and the Valley, and a wonderful home to hang out in with the family.
