Absolutely Fantastic Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Rose Hill Cottage!! The home is absolutely wonderful! We visited Yosemite during the day and returned every night to this wonderful oasis. Every detail was taken care of and the personal touches made our family feel so very welcome! Thank you so much for the fresh baked cookies, the bottle of wine and local coffee which was all set out upon our arrival along with fresh roses and a giant Welcome on the fridge! The location is fantastic and the home was spotless. Our children enjoyed the pool, while we relaxed outside on the patio taking in the gorgeous view and grilled our dinner. We are also VRBO hosts, and were so impressed, that we plan on stealing some of your ideas!! Ha Ha Seriously, thank you for sharing your home and we can't wait to come back!! The Lambert Family

Great hosts! Great home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this beautiful home. Thank you Glen and Cindy! Cindy, thank you for helping us track down a wine bottle opener. Enjoying a glass on the patio was a great way to relax after a trip to Yosemite with our toddler. You have the perfect getaway home for young and old. Families with little ones definitely will feel safe here. Thank you! Elizabeth B.

We loved this home. Beautiful views, very comfortable. Had everything we needed, and then some. We visited both Yosemite and Sequoia National park both were in reasonable drives. Our hostess were very helpful and accommodating.

It's not the quantity but the quality of our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Oh where to begin! First let me say that The Fryers are exceptional hosts. You will not find a more responsive couple. LOVED Rose Hill Cottage. When we walked in from 8 hours of traveling from Chicago it immediately felt like home. Since the weather was 109 we decided to use the pool the next morning and wait for the crowds to thin out at the entrance. Ahhhh...thank goodness for that cold water. It felt great until the wildfires started popping up around us and so we had to cut our vacation short by 4 days due to a mandatory evacuation. So basically it was an overnighter. However those 24 hours at Rose Hill were quite eventful. We swam in the pool while drinking a couple of cold ones and then we saw a black bear go trotting by so all in all it was a pretty exciting one day for a bunch of city gals. BTW, Glen and Cindy refunded our money for the 4 nights we did not stay and are shipping back our hiking shoes we forgot in our haste to vacate the premises. The most important thing is their residences including Rose Hill Cottage survived and all is OK. We will definitely be back! Thank you Cindy and Glen!

Excellent hosts, Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5

The best rental experience we've ever had. Glen and Cindy are consummate hosts. Their home is private, cozy, and well maintained. They went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and even added special extras such as freshly baked cookies and a welcome message on the fridge upon arrival. They even texted us in the middle of the day at Yosemite to inform us of a road closure that may have affected our travel plans. The backyard outside area is tremendous. So tranquil and private. Everything you need, from a grill, to an outdoor table, pool, and even a group of bunnies who visit daily to share the yard with you as you enjoy your coffee! We would recommend this property to anyone who is in the Mariposa or Yosemite area.

cozy place, understanding staff

  • 5 of 5

My stay was right around the time of the Detwiler fire. I was very concerned about the road closures and whether I would be able to visit Yosemite, which was the purpose of the whole trip. Cindy was very understanding about the situation and was willing to be flexible about the refund deadline policy in hopes that the fire would be contained by the time my travel date arrived. Thankfully, the fire was controlled before my reservation dates and I was able to stay at the Rose Hill Cottage and visit Yosemite daily. It is a beautiful home, with a lot of wildlife, satellite TV, wifi, a cozy back porch and a swimming pool. The weather was very hot and it was refreshing to go for a swim after long hikes at Yosemite. Morning coffee in the backyard was very tranquil, watching the hummingbirds and finches visit the flowers and bird bath and watching the rabbits hop around. Cindy was always very prompt in replying whenever I sent her a message and answered all of my questions. Would love to stay again if I'm in the area.
