"Just returned from 5 nights at the Chalet. The home was clean upon arrival and very spacious. Loved the kitchen and especially the kitchenaid dishwasher which worked great. The pooltable brought the kids together. Enjoyed the hike on the road behind the house to the firelookout and even saw 2 bears in the distance. Sunsets from the deck or inside were beautiful. Beds were comfy. Location cannot be beat! Yosemite West is the best place to stay in Yosemite for enjoying the park. Hope to be back again."

"Our stay at Pine Mountain Lake was wonderful. Joe makes every effort to make sure that your stay is terrific. His home shows pride of ownership! Very nice decor and plenty of room. We especially liked the game room with every just about everything you'd want. Decks everywhere make for enjoying nice sunsets and dawns right on the 9th tee of the golf course. . The Pine Mtn lake personnel are very cordial. The gate to Yosemite is about 30 minutes and another 35 minutes into the Yosemite Valley on a really nice highway. Wild life and especially deer , bald eagles and geese everywhere. Hard to beat!"

"Very spacious house. Incredibly comfortable and clean. Martina, the owner is a very accommodating lady and ensured that our stay was care-free. We were able to barbecue and eat dinner outside on the very nice upper deck, which was extremely private.
There are laundry facilities at the home and detergent was furnished. One of the best features, downstairs in the finished basement (with full bath) was a ping-pong table! Yes, this was part of our nightly entertainment and very enjoyable after a full day in Yosemite - an EASY 30 min. drive to the park entrance.
Cons (very minor):
- the complex charges you $20 for your stay for "use of facilities" associated with the lake, etc. Frankly, I paid extra for beach rental equip and for dining at their "premier" restaurant at the golf club. So, I'm not really sure why they levy this fee. No, it's not much, but, if you extend your stay at another property in this complex, you will have to pay the $20 again. Seems bogus, but what do I know? All in all, the price of this property is a bargain and the area is quite beautiful.
If you are looking for fine dining, forget about it. The area is relatively bereft of choices. Steer clear of Buck Meadows restaurant, approx 10 mi. away on the road to Yosemite. You are way better off cooking at home. That said, the Groveland Inn had some pretty decent food, although both of my initial choices were sold out. But the food was quite good there, in spite of that.
There is an area market that is well-stocked. Don't buy beef there - it is very tough. Instead, take a drive to Sonora - a good-sized town with numerous restaurants and large grocery store(s).
All in all, this stay was worth every penny! My GF concurs. A better value you won't find. Don't even bother booking a hotel! Compared with a VRBO property like this, there is NO comparison!
Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Martina!"

"My husband and I spent a few days in Oakhurst while visiting Yosemite. This comfortable cottage was perfect for us. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle and close enough to Yosemite and other activities. Mike and Sharon were very helpful with answering any questions we had and were wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay here again."
