Absolutely Fantastic Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Rose Hill Cottage!! The home is absolutely wonderful! We visited Yosemite during the day and returned every night to this wonderful oasis. Every detail was taken care of and the personal touches made our family feel so very welcome! Thank you so much for the fresh baked cookies, the bottle of wine and local coffee which was all set out upon our arrival along with fresh roses and a giant Welcome on the fridge! The location is fantastic and the home was spotless. Our children enjoyed the pool, while we relaxed outside on the patio taking in the gorgeous view and grilled our dinner. We are also VRBO hosts, and were so impressed, that we plan on stealing some of your ideas!! Ha Ha Seriously, thank you for sharing your home and we can't wait to come back!! The Lambert Family

cozy place, understanding staff

  • 5 of 5

My stay was right around the time of the Detwiler fire. I was very concerned about the road closures and whether I would be able to visit Yosemite, which was the purpose of the whole trip. Cindy was very understanding about the situation and was willing to be flexible about the refund deadline policy in hopes that the fire would be contained by the time my travel date arrived. Thankfully, the fire was controlled before my reservation dates and I was able to stay at the Rose Hill Cottage and visit Yosemite daily. It is a beautiful home, with a lot of wildlife, satellite TV, wifi, a cozy back porch and a swimming pool. The weather was very hot and it was refreshing to go for a swim after long hikes at Yosemite. Morning coffee in the backyard was very tranquil, watching the hummingbirds and finches visit the flowers and bird bath and watching the rabbits hop around. Cindy was always very prompt in replying whenever I sent her a message and answered all of my questions. Would love to stay again if I'm in the area.

Clean, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Yosemite and this home was a welcome retreat after busy days at the park. Spacious and well equipped, we enjoyed the pool on the hot days too. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking fairly close proximity to Yosemite, but don't forget to check out Mariposa too. It's a great place to get away from it all and unwind. Hope to return again.

Lovely Cottage in Scenic Location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was warm, charming, and very adequately equipped. Upon arrival, you immediately feel relaxed. Our group of six’s only regret was that we didn’t have more time to spend in this idyllic location. We chose to eat our meals in the lovely outdoor space enjoying the view. This was a great spot to return to after a day in Yosemite, and the complimentary park pass was a nice little bonus. It was too cool to use the pool, but we did enjoy a friendly ping pong tournament. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. Their personal touches meant a lot, and we appreciate them allowing our son to bring his small dog at the last moment. We’ve used VRBO for many years and have stayed in many wonderful homes, but this one goes right up to the top of the list. Thank you, Glen & Cindy for a wonderful stay.
