All Around Perfect Place When Visiting Yosemite
When we arrived, we found the place to be extremely clean and cozy. Robn & Trace (owners) couldn't have been more accommodating to us during our stay (05/11 - 05/16/18). They provided everything we needed including coffee, towels, fresh towels, kitchenware and much more. On one night during our stay, they even went out of their way to look for ponchos for us for our hike the following day as it was going to rain. Before we arrived, Robn messaged us a lot of useful information. Trace used to be a park ranger, and being new to Yosemite, was the perfect person to talk with while planning our hikes. Even though we were on the same property as Robn & Trace (separate unit), they were not intrusive at all. However, we really enjoyed their company, stories and sharing a beer or margarita with them almost every night. This place blew our expectations out of the water and I couldn't think of a better place to recommend if visiting Yosemite. We can't wait to come back some day!
Very clean and cozy
Great place about an hour drive away from Yosemite. Pretty little town of Mariposa had some cool shops and restaurants. Loved the place and the hosts. Would definitely stay here again. Cozy little place that's hard to leave. :)
We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Robin's Nest and love that you felt comfortable and "cozy." February is a beautiful time to visit the Sierra Foothills and Yosemite, but just a little cold. Hope to have you stay with us again.
Robyn and Trace were beyond accommodating. We had the most magical elopement experience at the nest!
Before we arrived Robyn was so helpful with directions and advice. When we arrived the accommodations were perfect and everything we hoped for our elopement in Yosemite. We will remember this experience forever. Thank you for making our time so special. -David and Megan
It was such a treat having you both stay with us. We love how "in the moment" you both are and loved sharing your excitement in making special and magical memories in Yosemite on your very special day. Wishing you the best that life has to offer on your new journey in life.

The owners really were outstanding in attending to every detail from fresh half and half in the refrigerator to a bag of awesome local roasted coffee. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.
Thank you Michael for the more than kind review. We want our guests to have everything they need and to be very comfortable in a home-like setting. Happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you both again.
We had the best time at the Robin's nest! Robyn and Trace were amazing :) Lots of tips for our Yosemite vacation (including great hikes) and meals in Mariposa. The Robin's nest was very clean and comfortable. We can't wait to come back! Sorry we weren't able to sign the book, the pen didn't work and couldn't find another one, haha! But had such a blast, thank you!
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! It was so nice getting to know you both and we were impressed with all that you accomplished while in Yosemite. You are a delightful couple and we look forward to having you stay at with us again.

Great place and great people
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We were very happy with The Robin's Nest. We were pleasantly surprised with the complimentary treats that were gifted us. Trace and Robn were so kind. They gave us great recommendations for Yosemite Park and where to visit locally in Mariposa. We hope to come back here again!
Thank you for your kind review. We really enjoyed visiting with you (especially talking sports) and wish you all the happiness you deserve. You are a lovely couple and we hope to have you stay with us again.
