Why Robert Foster chose June Lake

We were very impressed with the cabin. Very spacious, clean and well maintained. The hot tub was such a great way to end a long day at the slopes. The kitchen came well equipped with everything we needed and the huge dining room table is great for bigger parties. Highly recommend this place and will definitely be coming back!
There are to many things I can say about this place; but it would not be enough. You need to be here to understand how nice this place is. I have been coming to June mountain for the last 4 years and Yosemite chalet is the place my family and I love to stay at.
Refreshing, immaculate, cozy, and FUN!
This property blew our minds. We were a party of six in desperate need of a break from reality.
From the time that we opened the door and stepped into the mud room to the bittersweet exit, we were in constant awe.
Definitely worth the 8 hour drive from San Diego! We look forward to returning to this property in the future!
I won’t describe the details of the interior or exterior, because you NEED to experience it for yourselves. It’s AMAZING!
Robert, thank you for accommodating us every step of the way! You are an amazing property manager/owner and we greatly appreciate how attentive you are!
Loved every aspect of the Chalet
My family spent a week here, blessed with an overnight blanket of fresh powder that made the trip to June Mountain Ski Area even more outstanding. The Chalet was the perfect home away from home for us and we will definitely return!!
Beautiful house and property. Strongly recommend it!
Our family enjoyed our time at the Yosemite chalet immensely. The chalet is a true log "cabin" built to magnificent castle-like proportions. The grandeur of the home is rivaled only the captivating natural setting. When we first arrived, I frankly went from room to room a with mouth agape and could not stop myself from saying "wow" at every turn. The soaring ceilings, the majestic fireplace in the great room and big kitchen are all exceptional. The dining room features a slab table top cut from one enormous tree. The house is tastefully appointed, with interesting books about art and the beauty of the natural world, as well as local adventures, local trees, and Eastern Sierra wildlife. There are bronze sculptures and Native American art in nearly every room. The house is capacious, affording everyone breathing room to decompress and relax, yet cozy when the wood burning stove is lit in the kitchen.
Every detail was considered for the convenience of guests in this home. The entrance has large shelves, cubbies and a long bench for wiggling out of snow boots and ski gear and keeping boots, mittens and market bags organized. Lights are on sensors to guide you wherever you go. The master is on a wing separated from the other bedrooms for maximum privacy, and complete with a "bird's nest" loft. The bath towels are plush and the bathrooms afford a choice of interesting soaking and/or bubbling experiences. Sadly, we did not try out the geothermal hot tub but certainly intend to in the summer months. The beds are thick foam, that feel firm at first but then you sink into them sleeping like a log yourself.
As we settled in, I soon learned that every couch was accommodating in the extreme, where you could just settle in and read, converse or daydream, looking out of a window. The windows themselves must be 30 feet tall in the great room. Nearly every window in the home was artfully cut to form a lovely frame for a masterwork "painting" of nature. VIEWS. The stained glass in the master bedroom creates a cathedral-like calm when the sun pours through them. And, the house is set perfectly on a lot where a creek ambles around three sides of the property and backs up to trails easy enough for our 7-year-old to hike up and get a sense of adventure. There were puzzles and games tucked away for a larger crowd and I found myself playing "twister" for the first time in 35 years.
The chalet is a stone's throw from the June Lake family-friendly ski area.
Only 45 minutes to world-famous Yosemite national Park. There is a small pond and two streams on the property.
