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

Great experience at. The chalet

  • 5 of 5

Staying overnight inside the Yosemite park is an amazing experience. The chalet gave us this opportunity. Staying at our 'own' place, not an hotel..

Equipped with everything you'll need.

Pool table and jacuzzi gave our family plenty of fun time.

Clean and comfortable.

Corespondent with owner very helpful.

Thank you!

Wonderful house, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 6 adults and one toddler. We were as close as you can get to Yosemite Valley while being in a home vs the lodge or a park cabin. We were very comfortable and appreciated the fully stocked kitchen since there are not restaurants close by. The house was basically clean for our visit, but it would have earned another star from us if it had been "toddler" clean - our active little guy found places under sofas and nightstands that had been missed by the cleaning crew. That said, the rooms were basically neat & tidy, and we were all comfortable for five nights in our beds. Our diverse group of grandparents, friends, parents, toddler, avid hikers and casual park enthusiasts recommend this Yosemite vacation home in a prime location.

Be sure to walk down the street to the trail for the historic Henness Ridge Fire Lookout. From the unmarked trailhead on Azalea Road, it is an easy/moderate .7 mile hike past the water towers to the ridge. It was the only trail we had entirely to ourselves during our stay - and the view from the top is well worth the walk!

Wonderful view of sunsets from deck. Played pool and enjoyed cooking in open, modern kitchen. Lovely master bedroom and loft upstairs. Location is ideal for exploring Yosemite Valley and Park.

Lovely home conveniently located inside the park

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Storybook Chalet. This charming home is conveniently located inside the park with easy access to the main attractions in the Valley. My kids loved the hot tub on the deck and it was super relaxing to sit out there and star gaze after a long day of hiking in the park. The beds were comfy and the house was well kept. There is also a nice view of the mountains from the front deck. The only downside is having to haul your trash down to the Valley at the end of your stay. I wish there were more conveniently located trash receptacles. Nonetheless, I would still highly recommend this property.

Winter Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here awhile back and the stay was great for three couples. It would be awesome if you had a bunk bed for the kids upstairs. Overall, a wonderful experience and we will be headed back!
