Beautiful home in gorgeous setting!
We loved this home! Perfect for a quick getaway weekend. The setting is amazing- so peaceful!
Wonderful Gateway to Yosemite Area
The house is really spacious and tastefully decorated in every room. The kitchen is amazing! Lot's of light. The outdoor area is very peaceful....such as watching a hummingbird in the early morning after getting out of the hot tub. Renea handled a slight mix up with our stay very graciously, which only adds to giving them 5 stars. Great access to 140 hwy. heading into Yosemite.
Peaceful retreat house!
We loved this house! A group of four of us booked this house for our Yosemite trip and it was everything we wanted. The drive to Yosemite was an easy 40 minutesish to the park entry, the hot tub was PERFECT for our sore bodies after hiking all day, and the kitchen was large with everything we needed for cooking. The owners were responsive and answered all questions and concerns in a timely manner. We very much enjoyed coming home after a long day of walking/hiking and crowds to our peaceful retreat. Would book again!
Was such a relaxing experience and the house was so comfortable and beautiful. Would recommend to anyone if they were looking to stay in this area.
Great location with plenty of room
We had a great time visiting Yosemite from here. We were just close enough to miss out on the crowds directly around the park. The house was fun and we enjoyed all the space. Nice and clean and quiet. Thanks.
