About the property

Large 4 bedroom house in the rolling foothills on the way to Yosemite with pool

Mitchell Retreat is a spacious house on an acre and a half, with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The living room is open and has a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steal appliances. We have free Wifi, Netflix and Amazon Prime. We also have a large seasonal pool (shared) and deck and a private 7 person hot tub that is always hot. We live full time in this house and only rent it out when we are away, but my mother serves as a caretaker if you need anything when you are here and she lives up the street.

About Carl Mitchell

I am a teacher and my husband Carl stays home with our seven children. We love to travel on the school breaks and rent out our home while we go camping.

Carl Mitchell purchased this house in 2004

Why Carl Mitchell chose Yosemite Lakes

We are 45 minutes from the south entrance to Yosemite Park, and are surrounded by nature, lakes, and outdoor activities for everyone. We have a seasonal swimming pool, a year round heated spa and plenty of room for a big family or two!

What makes this house unique

Because we live in the home when its not rented out, we have all of the comforts and supplies that any home would have. We have spent years turning our home into a private resort and we would love to share it with you!

While we do not allow pets, it should be noted that pets live on this property. We have two (strictly) outdoor cats that will be fed by our staff in our absence. We do have dogs that live in the house when we are home. We make every effort to clean the home to hotel standards for each and every guest, but if you have someone that is highly allergic to animals this should be a consideration.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house, the bedroom layout worked really great for our group and the outside setting is just stunning. Love the backyard...after long days in Yosemite it's great to return to the peaceful rock waterfall, big pool, hot tub & grill. Great little towns of Oakhurst & Coarse Gold are close too, just about 25 min drive from the house. The baby deers who visited often in the front yard were a special treat for all of us too!! Highly recommend ❤️❤️

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything that you need. Even though it a little big far and hard to get to the place, I didn't really mind after seeing the house. The swimming pool and the Jacuzzi are the plus. We enjoy this house and will definitely come back if we go to Yosemite again.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here during Memorial Day weekend with a couple of different families. The house was great. The pool, hot tub, and trampoline were great for the kids. The drive into Yosemite is very easy. We would highly recommend this home to anyone! Thank you!

Perfect long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and worked out perfect for a long weekend with my 2 adult sons over Mother's Day . Plenty of bedroom and bathroom options. Full kitchen, plenty of tvs, as well as a hot tub, outdoor dining spaces and a grill.

While the pool was too cold to enjoy, we did really delight in waking up to several deer walking around the property while we enjoyed our morning coffee to the sounds of a landscaped water feature.

The hosts (or their representatives) make themselves available for any needs or issues, and the informational binder they left proved invaluable.

Highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
