Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the Huff and Puff! It's so nice to hope that the accomodations you rent are as nice as the photos, only to find when you get there that it is NICER than the pictures!! Everything we could need was there....."Borrow" the chairs and bring them with you into Yosemite...Great to have for little "stopovers" or breaks to sit and read your book in beautiful surroundings. Thank you for everything!!

A little bit of paradise outside of busy Yosemite!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this house! It was close enough to Yosemite (25 min) and far enough away from the busy crowds in the park. Every amenity you could want or need is here. Jill has truly thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. And we saw more wildlife in her yard than we did in Yosemite!! Would HIGHLY recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit Yosemite!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Perfect relaxing getaway place!

Jill welcomed us on arrival and provided great resources for our visit to Yosemite. The cottage could not have been more comfortable. Spacious accommodations and impeccably clean. We even had access to a cooler to use on our day trips. We enjoyed it immensely and definitely recommend!!!!!!

Peaceful Mountain Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Huff and Puff Cottage is a perfect little jewel nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains. It is close to Yosemite and Bass Lake. The cottage is very welcoming and cozy. Jill and Darrell have included all of the comforts of home. They are very gracious hosts and so friendly and wonderful to talk to. My favorite thing to do was enjoy my morning coffee sitting on a bench outside watching the wildlife. My second favorite thing to do was enjoy my wine in the evening on that same bench!Most nights deer would wander through the property on their way up the mountain. I would highly recommend this peaceful little cottage. You won't be disappointed!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Jill has thought of everything that you might wish for to make your trip easy and comfortable. Many things we didn't even use but noticed that they are there (air bed, pack n plays, high chair, toys, hair dryers, crock pot, etc). The kitchen was great as we brought all of our food and used the grill every night. The cottage is attached to the owners' home, but they make a point to give you total privacy. Surprisingly Oakhurst actually has many restaurants, grocery store, Dollar Store, etc. just down the street. The best thing was the collection of information about Yosemite, super helpful. We spent most of our time in Yosemite but it was a very nice place to come home to in the evenings. We enjoyed watching some of the older movies in their collection. I would love to stay again and will pass this gem on to friends for sure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week living in Jill's house and plan to return next year due to the great experience. Our group consisted of two couples, each with our own bathroom. It was very clean, decorated beautifully, lovely patio and yard including Barbq and well stocked kitchen. Thank you, Jill.
