The PERFECT Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few days and it was truly perfect. Nature's Retreat offered the most amenities for such a great price. This place has a jacuzzi, hammock, BBQ with propane, AC/heat, wifi, top tv channels with a DVD player, Netflix, Hulu, and then even toiletries. There was shampoo, soap, hand soap, lotion, tissues, paper towels. And the kitchen even had some of your basics like butter, pasta, condiments and more. Nature's Retreat offers more than any other rentals I looked at. We had the best time and really enjoyed the cozy house. We also loved how the bedding, carpet and just everything felt and smelled so clean. It was also great to meet the owner Terri and her family who were very sweet. They truly cared about our stay. We are recommending this place to our family and friends too!

Nice cabin in the woods close to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

Nature's Retreat is a very nice two bedroom cabin in the woods which is a perfect location to use to visit Yosemite. It is not brand new but it is clean and has the necessary comforts of home. There is reasonably fast wireless internet and the main television has a variety of streaming options for movies and shows. The house has some basic kitchen items though we never cooked while we were staying there. One room is upstairs with a small living room and the other, larger bedroom is downstairs. There is only one bathroom in the house and the people sleeping upstairs must come down the stairs to use the bathroom. Only having one bathroom is the only negative I can think of for the house. The owner Terri is very nice and is very helpful on all accords. While the owners live on the property, they are respectful of your privacy and available if you have any questions. In short, Nature's Retreat is a great base camp for visiting Yosemite and works great for a family...much better than a hotel in my book.

The house was cozy and a great location in proximity to town, Yosemite and Bass Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our stop at Nature's Retreat was last on a wonderful 2 week vacation that we took for my daughter's graduation from college. The home was very comfortable and cozy for us to relax. The location was convenient to Yosemite, we were able to pick up some grocery's in town and we took our tubes over to float around in Bass Lake. The hot tube was the best after a long day of hiking and to look up at all the stars, what a treat! I would definitely recommend Nature's Retreat to all travelers.

Very peaceful and nice home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nature's Retreat was quite nice. It was easy to find and quiet. The hot-tub and hammock were nice touches and everything was beautiful. The house was ample in size and we had no complaints about anything! We were able to meet the owner briefly and she was quite friendly and made us feel at home.

There was a grocery store etc within ten minutes which was nice as we planned on doing grocery shopping for the weekend when we got there.

One thing to be aware of is that you're about a 1.5 hour drive from the parts of Yosemite that you would actually want to visit. This is not an issue with Nature's Retreat but the south entrance of Yosemite is still a long ways from the areas worth visiting so just be aware!

All in all our stay was pleasant, well priced, beautiful and worth the trip. If you're looking for a place around Oakhurst I would highly suggest Nature's Retreat!

Wonderful Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Terri and Doug were both welcoming and friendly and a time was enjoyed by all. The Nature's Retreat is certainly a quaint and accommodating cottage which is complimented not only by its location to Bass Lake and the Park, but also with its comforting amenities including a hot tub, reliable WiFi, and chef-grade propane BBQ. It is a must stay if you want to visit Yosemite but want to pay a reasonable price. Nature's Retreat in Oakhurst, CA comes highly recommended as do its owners and operators

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $95
Refundable damage deposit $150
Pet Fee $50
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.
