It was very clean, pleasant, comfortable, and wonderful place with beatiful surrounding! I would go there again!
We've spent there two night - 3 families (4,5,6) - there was a place for everyone, the place was clean and inviting. the kitchen was well stocked - it has everything you need , and enough for a big group of people.
Grocery store is 15 min drive. Bass lake is 5 min drive, and the Yosemite entrance is 45 min drive - perfect location.
We did BBQ at evening and the kids enjoyed playing with the sand bags outside.
We would love to come back again - we really enjoyed it!
Our family of 14 stayed here for a week, driving into Yosemite most days. The furniture and linens were like-new. The kitchens were well-appointed. We were especially pleased to find storage containers, beverage pitchers, blenders, and cookie sheets. We brought some of our kitchen items from home that are suited to a very large family, and didn't really use them, except the knife sharpener and crock pot. We brought all of our food in, and found two refridgerators quite helpful. We ate our dinners on the patio with plenty of seating. Having two units turned out nicely because most of the activity happened in the lodge while the cottage was more of a retreat. We spent hours playing the Corn Hole game in the back yard, and played all the board games. Deer meandered around the property on the first day like stray cats, but we didn't see them after that. The views were peaceful and relaxing, especially at sunset. A hot tub and a hammock would be welcome additions, as would clocks in the bedrooms. We would stay here again.
If you expect a Taj Mahal, you probably won’t get it. But if you want to have a nice, clean, comfortable and newly remodeled large house, you’ve got it. It’s a bit hard to tell from the posted pictures that the house actually turned out to be rather well maintained and was quite a pleasant surprise. The bedrooms are comfy with good linens, the furnishings are decently newer, the bathrooms are clean, the dining and family rooms are cozy, the kitchen is very much operable and well stocked with various kitchen utensils. Tea and coffee with sugar and cream are a pleasant bonus. The property is actually a two dwelling unit, with a 3br/2ba main structure plus a large full size 1br/1ba separate unit which could easily accommodate 6-8 adults. The backyard is quite large with view of the mountain range. It has 2 large wood tables, benches and BBQ facilities, good for the winter and summer alike.
We enjoyed the place which is also not too far from Yosemite Park where we visited daily. Communication with the manager/owner was effective and pleasant. We would very much likely come back and stay here the next time. Great value. D&H Ho
Had a great time at the Lazy Bear Lodge. Our son proposed at Tuolumne Meadows at sunrise and the surprise dinner back at the Lodge with family was perfect. Wonderful home and amenities. Well equipped kitchen and outdoor BBQ for dining in. The beds were very comfortable (out kids took pictures of the pillow tags to buy them). Everyone commented on the homey mountain cabin feel. Three deer visited on our last morning. The owners are very responsive to questions and concerns. We recommend the Southgate Brewing Company in Oakhurst for dining. Highly recommended and we plan on staying again.
Home is located in a wooded community, close to shopping and restaurants.
