Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi!



Just wanted to send a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your Cedar Chalet. We found the house in excellent condition and a perfect accommodation for the five of us. We loved the peace and quiet of the evenings, and were very thankful that we didn't opt to stay in the Village - too busy for us!



We had one day of serious hiking ... my husband, daughter, and niece hiked the trail of Yosemite Falls... they made it safely to the top to

take in the view and savor that feeling of a major accomplishment!

Our niece's husband and I found some "easy" trails to explore and really enjoyed ourselves. Our timing was perfect for this visit - plenty of water to show off the splendor of the falls, and beautiful summer flowers all along the way. And, perfect weather... which allowed us to see the most amazing stars on our evening "Stargazing"

tour at Glacier Point.



One evening, we decided to watch the sunset from the fire ranger station near your chalet - but we never reached our destination - we encountered one of your huge park bears - right in the middle of the trail! Everyone hightailed it out of there - I did pause long enough to snap a picture though - to prove the event to our friends!



So, we thank you for sharing your little corner of paradise.. and perhaps we will return at some point in the future - we would like to share this experience with our son, his wife, and our new grandchild some day... her pregnancy is the reason they could not travel with us ... but we all agree that the sacrifice will be well worth it!



Hope that your summer goes well, and that you are enjoying each day.



Sincerely, Dolly Canterbury

Nice place great location.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cabin was great. Location to the rest of the park was awesome. Cleanliness was good. It would have been great if the very large cobwebs inside the house were cleaned up. But it seems they have been there for a while. But definitely not a deal breaker. The pool table was awesome my kids loved it. We were able to use the jacuzzi for one night the first one. Unfortunately it was leaking when we arrived and based on the notes in the "welcomebook " it's been that way for a few visits, at least, before us. Due to the leaks we had to put water in it the next morning as it was very low. The water never got warm after that and then it stopped turning on all together. We did notify the owner and he called his contractor but there was no fix during our stay which was unfortunate because this was the main reason I was willing to pay more per night for this cabin, was for the jacuzzi and pool table feature!!! The toilets had a few plugging issues right when we got there so we had to unclog them, inconvenient . But then they started working again until the last day. Other than these few fixable items our stay was wonderful. I was unsure how well stocked the kitchen was so I brought pans and knives for cutting and cooking. But the pans and knives at the cabin where fantastic. The kitchen well stocked with all types of pans seeing plates bowls etc. even have every type of glass needed. Wine champagne shot coffee etc. and restrooms were stocked with towels and TP. Quiet neighborhood, responsive owners. Perfect for some adventures. Yosemite is fabulous so glad we were able to go. Definitely recommend. But be sure the jacuzzi works !!😜? Word of advice have your entry code printed or screen shot before you drive up to the cabin. No service means no service!😬?

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect fit for us. We were there for climbing and rock climbing with our three very active grown sons. It was a joy to return to the house after a long day. Well equipped kitchen, great deck and hot tub, pool table = all kept us entertained. We were so grateful not to be waiting at the entry gate to get into the park each day.

A real stretch for 10, but a great location.

  • 3 of 5

9 bath towels, dining for 6 inside and 6 ish outside, not all windows had screens and some fans don't work so can get warm without central air. Pool table was fun but not in the best shape. Grill ran out of propane on first night.

Owner's Response: We apologize about the propane issue. The Housekeeper checked the tank and said that the valve was turned off and the tank still had propane. Sorry that you didn't contact us while you were at the home we could have helped with additional towels and showing you where extra propane was located. We've added additional comments to our check-in and tips sheets to make sure future guests know where to get extra towels and propane.

Lovely Home in Yosemite West

  • 5 of 5

The home was cozy and clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The hot tub was great and having the pool table was fun as well. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us.
