"Excuse my title but we truly enjoyed our stay here. We came here with a baby and my parents and had a memorable and relaxing experience - the kind we were looking for.
The space deck in the 2nd floor is a great way to start the mornings while the pool table on the first floor is a great way to end the evenings! The kitchen is fully loaded and bathrooms have ample supplies of toiletries. The place is secluded which gave us the privacy we were looking for. I agree with the rest of the reviewers that the parking dock is quite steep and the front of your car will inevitably scrape against it no matter what you do.
Will definitely come again."

"We stayed for 5 days at Alpenglow. There were 6 adults and 4 kids...with PLENTY of room for all of us. A nice large living room to sit around the fire and play games, chat, or read. A den with a tv and games/books/movies for kids kept the noise away from the main living room. Beautiful deck, great space for kids to explore right outside the front and back doors. Kitchen had great appliances, bathrooms were well stocked and super clean.
My mother had a broken knee cap and was in a full leg cast during the trip...and while the place is probably officially not handicap equipped...it actually worked out just fine for us. There is a walkway from the driveway up to the back door that does not require steps, just a gentle slope...so she was able to get in and out of the house just fine. There is a bedroom on the bottom floor with a king-sized bed and bathroom for those that might have mobility issues. Everything worked out great for her.
The kids slept in every possible place because there were so many to choose from. Futons, beds, pull-out sofa sleeper, etc. They said each of them was plenty comfortable and they loved trying a new place each night. It was like an adventure for them to explore all the different options.
We had all different weather while we were there...snow, sun, rain. The house was well controlled by the heater and insulation...we weren't too hot or too cold. Lots of blankets, sheets, towels, pillows...never lacked for anything to feel more comfortable.
We highly recommend taking the short hike out to see Foresta Falls. And, if you find that you're just dying to use your cell phone...the reception on that hike is unusually good for the area. Better than within the Foresta housing area and the Valley floor, actually. Wifi at Alpenglow is slow (and the owners tell you that in advance)...but you shouldn't be there for computing anyways, right?! If you just have to post photos to Facebook...do it on the hike to foresta falls.
The caretakers obviously love the house and put a great deal of effort to keep it nice for their visitors. The house was ready exactly at the time it was supposed to be for check-in...the instructions for check-out were easy to follow. We couldn't find anything wrong with the place. Seriously a wonderful time!"

"We stayed at the Gingerbread House for 3 nights and had a wonderful time! The house is adorable and well-appointed with kitchen and bathroom necessities. The bed in the loft was very comfortable and we were even able to cook a meal one evening without any trouble. 15 miles from the house to Yosemite's South Gate (about 25-30 minutes) and, from the gate, approximately another hour to Yosemite Valley. We drove in every morning and found the drive to be pleasant. The rooster, horse, and other animals on the property were a neat addition. Would definitely recommend!"
