perfect california yosemite getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Rose Cottage. It was as described on Home Away. Clean, comfortable, close to everything you will need. The hot tub was great after a day of hiking in Yosemite. We cooked every morning and evening and did not need anything but what was provided in the kitchen. Husband and son had fun playing ping pong at night. Comfortable beds and great bathroom. Glen and Cindy were always available and helpful. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your timely review! Glen says hi and it was very nice meeting and chatting with you. We are glad you enjoyed the new hot tub and we found out that a critter under the deck had been chewing on the wiring and has been dealt with;-). Thank you for taking good care of our home; it looked great! Hope you can stay with us again on your next trip to Yosemite. Happy Trails, Glen & Cindy Fryer

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rose Hill Cottage. The cottage is strategically situated for optimum privacy while you look out on the forest of the Sierra foothills. The cottage was spotless, cozy, very well equipped, comfortable and the quietness of the area was beyond anything that we had expected. Cindy and Glen made us feel very welcome and helped us celebrate our 52nd anniversary with champagne, cookies, candy and coffee. We highly recommend this cottage as an ideal location. One helpful hint and that is, if you want to sleep-in, be sure to bring an eye mask.

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.
