Guestbook comments from the owner


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

A great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Yosemite is amazing. We shall remember it always. We were very comfortable in the cedar chalet, and Eric was responsive to all our questions.

Hot tub was broken.

  • 2 of 5

We rented this cabin because it had a hot tub and pool table. Weeks after collecting our payment I was sent paperwork including helpful guides on operation of different things in the cabin as well as rules and a disclaimer explaining that the operation of the hot tub was consistently good and that in the event it didn't work we would not be reimbursed in any way. I didn't think anything of it at the time because of its past consistent operation. However the day before our stay we received an email saying the hot tub was broken. I guess it should be stated somewhere on the listing not to expect any reduction of price if the hot tub is not operational. This would have been useful to me rather than learning about it after we paid. Long story short, Do Not Rent for the Hot Tub. Or you may be sorry like we were.

Owner's Response: I can't argue with the guest's description of the their stay. The Spa stopped working during the previous guest's visit and we alerted the guest before their arrival about the issue and that a repair person would likely be there during their stay to try and fix it. A repairman did arrive to to repair the spa and found that the heater had become defective, causing the the breaker to trip and shut the spa down. A replacement heater had to be ordered which required a return trip by the repairman to fix the problem. Here is the note all guests receive: A note to guests about the spa: The spa operates year round and has an over 99% reliability history for operating over the last 3 years. Like all mechanical equipment, parts occasionally require replacing and it is possible that the spa may be out of service for all or part of your visit if repairs are required. We have a local contractor that can usually diagnose and fix minor issues with the spa when they occur but sometimes we need to order replacement parts or schedule a special spa service technician for repairs. Due to the remote location, these types of repairs can not generally be competed in a day because of time/distance/tech schedules/shipping time, etc. We love the spa and we make every effort to make sure it is working for your visit. We've had 2 guests in the past 3 years that were very disappointed because the spa was not working for their visit. 1 left a poor review of the house and the other threatened to leave a poor review even though we were able to get the spa fixed for them within 24 hours of their arrival. Because of the negative feedback from those 2 guests over issues beyond our control we want to make clear in advance that we do not offer refunds, or make adjustments to the rental price of the unit if the spa is not working during your visit. If you are choosing our home for your Yosemite visit solely, or primarily because of the spa then we want you to be aware of this policy in advance and understand that while we will do everything we can to make sure that the spa is working or repaired quickly if it is found to not be working during your visit, we do not guarantee that it will be working for your visit and we do not offer refunds or adjustments for the spa if there are issues with it during your stay. If you will be disappointed enough to write a negative review should the spa not be working during your visit, we ask that you consider booking a different property.
