Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything we hoped for and more. Lovely comfortable home in peaceful surroundings. Everything we needed was provided and we loved having a barbecue followed by lying in the hot tub looking at the stars. Great walk to Bass Lake and ideal for day trip to Yosemite. Friendly helpful host too. Can't recommend it more highly.

Welcoming and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time hiking and our kids definitely didn't want to leave. The retreat was cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub. Yosemite isn't far away and this was a great get away from the everyday norm. Fantastic place to unwind and relax!

A Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon at this retreat. When looking for a cabin we did find several that were cheaper and also more expensive. The pricing sits right in the middle and after our stay, I think it was more than worth it. Our decision was based on the great reviews and the private hot tub. I'm so glad we went with this cabin, it was a great choice!

Terri is a kind, gracious and very helpful, host. Her directions were spot on. When we arrived it was later in the evening and she left the lights on for us. The cabin was very very clean. It has a lovely, comfortable homey feel. The kitchen is tiny and adorable but has everything you need. It's well stocked with all of those small extras that you just forget about.

The master bed is crazy comfortable. The scenery is beautiful and very secluded. The stars at night are gorgeous and its so quiet. Terri has a sweet puppy named Jo Jo who is very obedient but ready for a good pet anytime. There are two cats that rome the property as well, all adorable, clean and well behaved.

The cabin is about a 40-minute drive to the South Entrance of Yosemite.

Terri has put together a binder with great tips on excursions, trails, and restaurants in the area. After a wonderful day in Yosemite, the back patio (just off the master bedroom) was perfect for an evening of barbecue and a soak in the hot tub. I would recommend this retreat for anyone! Very, very happy! We hope to return for our anniversary.

lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March for a couple of days. The setting is beautiful and there are some trails behind the property for hiking. It has a nice outdoor area with a hammock, picnic table, fireplace, a horseshoe pit and hot tub. There is a friendly neighborhood cat who visited frequently as well.

There is a closet full of games/toys for children and older kids. There are also several movies that you can watch.

The landlord is very nice and helped us out when we were in a difficult situation and we greatly appreciated that.

The property is close to a town where there are restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, movie theater and all the essentials. It is approximately 1 hr outside of Yosemite NP so an easy enough drive to get into the park.

Overall the property is very nice and we were very satisfied. The only negatives are that the decor is a little outdated, and as others have noted, the kitchen is very small so would be difficult with larger groups. There was only one bathroom for use which might also be challenging for larger groups.

Owner's Response: Hello Joy, Thanks so much for your lovely review. :-) The Retreat is only 17 miles to the Southern Entrance of Yosemite, so it takes about 20 minutes to actually be in the Park and at Mariposa Grove.. it does take up to 40 minutes (total) to get down to the valley floor which is 23 miles inside the park. :-) Yes, the kitchen is small, as advertised with the entire kitchen being pictured on the site, so hopefully you were not surprised. We have actually had a family cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner there! (if you could believe that) Our maximum guest count is 4 so we feel the house is perfect for that. So glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks again for the great review.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the retreat! Beautiful views and a nice trail near by. The home itself was comfortable and very clean. They provide everything that you would need. Highly recommended. Go and see for yourself...

Everything I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

The only downside I saw was the kitchen was soo small and the stove only has hi setting for stove top. This was not a problem as there were only 2 of us but if we would have brought the family it would have been difficult especially with it raining. Very clean and quiet. Loved our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Marcel for the nice review. Super glad you enjoyed your stay. The stove simply had a knob that needed adjusting and has since been replaced so all 4 burners and stove works fine. While the kitchen is small we have actually had guests cook Thanksgiving dinner there, turkey and all. :-) Thanks again for staying with us.

Pet Fee $50
Cleaning Fee $75
Refundable damage deposit $150
Tax Rate 11.0%

Holiday rates apply for 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Please note, my homes fees are based typically for a party of two in off season, (a couple sharing one room) as couples are the majority of travelers in off season and I feel they should not pay the same as a large party. By accepting my couples rate you agree to keep the middle guest bedroom and bath closed off and not used. If any additional guests the fee is $25 per guest after two per night. Any additional guest brought into the home without permission forfeits your deposit as well as the guest fee still having to be paid. Thanks for your understanding.
