With endless recreational possibilities, we have made this part of the world our home away from home, and would love to share our newly renovated home with all who are interested in staying in this wonderland of the high Sierras!

Clean and comfortable home.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoy the house clean and enough space for my family. Wifi only work on 5 phones and TV in the living room was the only one with netfix :( the ones in the bedrooms didn't work. Also we had two propane tanks for the grill but both were empty. We had to make the burgers inside the house. Still with this issues we did had a good time.

Wonderful and relaxing space for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

I scheduled a staff retreat the last two years in a row at this house, and it's provided a perfect getaway. The house is clean and well-stocked, the beds comfortable, and the hot tub is a great addition. I highly recommend it!

Great cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin in a good location. Not too far from Oakhurst and there is a park walking distance from the cabin. All the rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely stay at this cabin again.

Comfy house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed our stay. House was clean & the memory foam beds were very comfortable! Jacuzzi was nice after hiking. Depending on the group, good to know that 2 of the 3 bathrooms are ONLY accessible by going thru a bedroom. Kitchen had enough dishes/utensils/glassware for 8 people so we needed to wash prior to the next meal. Guests need to bring their own foil/wrap/Ziplock bags/napkins as the house has none. Fridge is completely empty so bring your own condiments. House has WiFi that worked well. Nice creek nearby was fun to explore. We loved how close the house was to Bass Lake & rented a boat one afternoon. Also loved hiking the Willow Creek trail which was nearby and lovely! We would definitely rent this home again, comfy and a good value.

Great house and great location!!

  • 4 of 5

This house worked out great for our family. The location was perfect. Yosemite was only about 25 minutes away from the South Gate and Bass Lake about 10 minutes. The house was clean and provided most of the necessary items in the home. The kids loved the ping pong table, fooseball table, X-box and games provided. They also enjoyed the hot tub and tether ball in the back yard. Fishing poles were also provided and we used them at Bass Lake.

We wish we knew there was a grocery plaza only about 4 miles away so we wouldn't have brought so much food in our coolers. Our fault for not looking. There are also many restaurants close by if you choose to eat out. Very convenient.

It was a very hot weekend during our stay and this house had AC, which made our stay very comfortable. We can't think of anything negative to say about this house. We would definitely stay here again or at another Scenic Wonders property. The only reason for my 4 stars was that the pull out sofa in the game room down stairs had some food like chips stuck in around the mattress and sheets, so it looks like they may have forgotten to change the sheets and clean this bed?? Otherwise, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath was perfect for 4 families (we had 12 total in our party-6 adults and 6 kids). We had the kids bring their sleeping bags and they all enjoyed sleeping together in the game room downstairs. We just wish it wasn't so hot the weekend we came (90+ weather) otherwise we would have BBQ'd and enjoyed the outside tables in the back.

Thank you Scenic Wonders for providing a great and clean place to stay!!

We loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was FANTASTIC from the moment we found the property online, to the day we (sadly) locked the front door and said goodbye. The owner was very responsive to our questions and all of our needs were met. There are grocery and misc. stores are a short drive, but one still feels away from it all. We stocked the kitchen and barely wanted to leave the place. Upon pulling up, the home exceeded our expectations. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and offered everything one might need- but not a thing more. Not clutter!! This location allowed us to enjoy an outdoor adventure with all of the creature comforts to come home to at the end of a long day. The hot tub is amazing. Staying here gave us something we could never have experienced at a hotel, quality alone time with each other only. Nice sized kitchen with clean cookware, indoor and outdoor dining areas, huge closed in yard and big cozy seating area for gathering and movies. This was the perfect space for our family gathering- couples, singles and children all happy and comfortable! While we were in the area we had 2 great days boating as Bass Lake, rode the Sugar Pine Railroad under a super moon and spent 2 days exploring Yosemite. I frankly would have been content to spend much of my time relaxing on the couch, watching movies and in the hot tub.

Golden Trout Retreat really has the best of both worlds, located just 15 minutes to the South Gate Entrance to the incomparable Yosemite National Park, and just 10 minutes to Bass Lake, named by Sunset Magazine as one of 'The West's Best Lakes'!

Heading to Yosemite for the day, within a 15-minute car ride from Golden Trout Retreat, you’ll arrive at the Yosemite’s South Gate Ranger Station. This is also home to Mariposa Grove, California’s Giant Redwood Trees, the oldest living things in the world. From here you can park at the shuttle bus parking area and catch a short two-mile shuttle ride to the grove. From Mariposa Grove heading further into the Park, you’ll arrive at Wawona Golf course the first regulation golf course in the Sierra Nevada that opened in 1918. If a round of golf isn’t on your agenda for the day, then head on to the incomparable Yosemite Valley, not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. Truly one of earths gems. First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

But before you head down to the valley you may want to head up to Glacier Point on Glacier Point Road. At an elevation 7,200 feet at night you fell as though you can touch the stars, an amazing location the see meteor showers! But during the day the breathtaking views of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Nevada and Vernal Falls will be with you forever.
