About Robert Foster

Our family has been part of the June Lake community since 1968. We love June Lake and are eager to share the experience with those appreciate the grandeur that the Eastern Sierras have to offer.

Robert Foster purchased this chalet in 1985

Why Robert Foster chose Gold Country / High Sierra

You can ski to the hot tub from the best lift-assisted backcountry slopes in the country. World class rock climbing surrounds you. As the crow flies it's only 5.75 miles to Yosemite National Park. All the beauty of Yosemite and none of the sheeple.

What makes this chalet unique

Sit in the outdoor hydrotherapy tub and listen to the flow of a mountain stream while staring out on majestic peaks. Wildlife frequents the 2/3 of an acre on which the property sits.

Wonderful vacation property in gorgeous June Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five really enjoyed the luxury home and property in June Lake. We had never been to this area before and it was laid back and full of amazing hiking trails and lakes. It was every bit as beautiful as Yosemite. The home had three very large bedrooms and each with it's own bathroom and a very large downstairs for eating, relaxing with family and playing games. We loved the outdoor hot spa and the grounds were stunning, looking out to Carson Peak Mountain each morning. Robert was very easy to work with and quickly responded to our questions. If you go, a highlight was walking across the street to the Carson Peak Inn for a great dinner. Summer time was spectacular but would love to see in winter next time!

Such a wonderful home on a stunning property! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our family summer vacation with our adult children/close family friends.Such a great find!! The pictures simply do not do it justice from the interior, to exterior warmth and ambiance. Plenty of room to roam around in comfort, and take in the great outdoors as well. We all hated to leave and can't wait to return again very soon! Maybe next time in winter, which should be gorgeous as well!

June at June Lake

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our time in this spacious cabin! It has an amazing setting with two creeks flowing on either side of the property. I miss falling asleep and waking to the calming sound of the creeks. We enjoyed hiking, kayaking on Silver Lake, going to hot springs, visiting Devil's Post Pile, and spending a day in Yosemite (although it was so nice getting back to June Lake after the crowds of people and traffic in the Yosemite Valley). After a long hike, it was a treat to relax in the hammock out back or to hop in the outdoor jacuzzi. This property was so beautiful, I would have been content staying at the cabin everyday! However, I wouldn't have wanted to miss all the beautiful wild flowers blooming along the hiking trails in June!

An idyllic Getaway In The Eastern Sierras Perfect For Winter or Summer! (A true beauty spot!)

  • 5 of 5

We live in Santa Monica – no snow there. Luckily, we had not one but two snowstorms - a total of eight inches. Most of the stay, we simply sat in the chalet looking at the snowfall. We are June Lake kind of people. It’s a small, quaint and beautifully located tourist village with everything you need – a couple of good restaurants, a general store, a post office, a ski resort, and the remarkable Perched Rock Boulders. The lake itself with the Eastern side of the Sierras for a backdrop is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. And that backdrop is all yours from every window of the chalet. The chalet is cleverly designed for winter use. On one side of the chalet is the large mud room connecting with the well-appointed kitchen – with its own cozy living area and wood burning stove. We fired up that stove every morning. The kitchen is large – the range has six burners – there are two ovens and a large side-by-side refrigerator and all the pots, pans, etc. etc. that could possibly be required. They had a dishwasher too. Connected is a large dining room with a huge table that seats 12. At first we thought we’d been over-served but we spent many hours in that room – eating, doing jigsaw puzzles, watching Shirley Bassey concerts on YouTube. The table it turned out was just the right size. There are double French doors that close off this area of the house so that it can be heated more efficiently. The same applies to the Great Room. It sports its own doors that keep the room warm and cozy despite its ample dimensions and 20 foot ceiling. The DVD library is well-stocked. Better than we expected. We brought our own DVDs (Bret Maverick is perfect for this sort of setting!) but we spent a lot of the time watching the films provided. There is a very nice backgammon table and a full bar with a little sink, fridge and microwave. Most of the downstairs windows have rolling shutters that can be lowered for privacy, energy efficiency and peace of mind. The loft was a perfectly quiet and removed sanctuary for reading by the very bright and welcome reading light (or meditation on the provided zafu.) Water pressure was strong and the hot water came up quickly. We used the smaller shower with the dinner plate sized “rain shower” head - perfect for December. The check-out protocol was easy and we had no problems at all during our stay. We highly recommend this place and June Lake and Mono Lake. But, of course, that you could already tell, couldn’t you?

We have stayed at many different cabins in the Sierra's and this was, By Far, the best place we have ever stayed. I cant imagine anyone who would disagree. I reside in Hidden Hill in Calabasas CA so Im used to luxury everyday. This chalet was my home away from home.

Great, relaxing time at the Yosemite Gateway Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our group of friends that convene in June Lake every summer had a fantastic time at the YGC. It's huge and spacious with a well-equipped kitchen. Plus, it is located right off the June Lake Loop and close to our favorite lakes and creeks. We accidentally locked ourselves out, and Robert handled the hassle in two seconds. See you next summer June Lake!
