A Great Getaway and a Great Place to end Each Day!
"My wife and I and our 3 teen-adult daughters flew into SF for the weekend and then spent a week at the Chalet. What a wonderful place!! Peaceful, quiet, beautiful views with every amenity you need. Every morning we saw birds, squirrels and deer just outside the back porch. The hummingbirds were quite feisty. Nothing better than a glass of wine at night on the back porch - the stars were as bright as I can remember seeing in a while - excellent Southern sky view! We spent most days in Yosemite walking and hiking. It was so nice to come back to the chalet after a long day - we all looked forward to to it each day. We grilled out a few times on the back porch (nice gas grill). The chalet was so nice and charming , my wife/daughters requested and spent an entire day just hanging out (something they rarely do on vacation). Paul, the owner, kept us informed (via e-mail) about the fires in Yosemite for a few weeks before we arrived all the way up through the time we left. He also kept us up-to date (via e-mail) about the wildlife in the area. We actually got to speak with Paul, a very interesting person. He is a great host and we truly enjoyed his home. It really felt like "home" for us. We enjoyed the stay, did not want to leave and look forward to our next trip to Mariposa, Yosemite and the chalet!"

"We stayed at Oso Lodge during Christmas. It was 7 adults and 3 kids. It was perfect for our family. The lodge is in a GREAT location to see the whole park, it is centrally located within the park. Everything was very well kept, very clean and comfortable. Barbara is a joy to work with and is easily reachable via phone if you need her. We will be back!"

"My spouse and I stayed at this cabin for 7 nights and it exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We realized we forgot to bring tupperware or sandwich bags to bring our food with us on our hikes, but fortunately these items were supplied in the cabin. The kitchen is well stocked (cooking supplies, cleaning supplies, dishes and utensils, basic spices) and there are a lot of toiletries in case you forget something, including bug spray and sunburn treatment. The grill worked great, we took advantage of eating outside and enjoying the garden, and we both slept comfortably. We had no issues with using the internet for web surfing and email. We did not have cell phone coverage at the cabin, but we had coverage at the top of the road that takes you to Foresta, parts of Yosemite Valley, and anytime we were near a ranger station. There is a phone at the cabin.
Yosemite NP is huuuge, so lots of driving is inevitable if you want to visit multiple areas of the park. Foresta is centrally located so that we were 75-90 minutes away from the most northern parts of the park we wanted to experience (Hetch Hetchy), and about 60-75 minutes from the southern most parts of the park we wanted to visit (Mariposa Groves). The drive to Yosemite Valley was less than 30 minutes. My spouse and I sampled a lot of Yosemite during our 6 full days there, and I didn't see any area I would prefer to stay over Foresta - again, considering that our goal was to get to a variety of regions of the park. It's also a great location if you're planning on spending a lot of time in Yosemite Valley but want to have your home base a little bit away from so many people when you want to relax in the evenings, as the Valley is quite busy and congested."
