Quiet lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here! It was so quiet, well stocked with condiments, spices, laundry building right on the grounds, close to Yosemite and some other great museums. Irene met us and was so gracious. Working with her was so easy.

Nice Place, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

A nice place to stay when visiting the Yosemite area. Plenty of room for 2-4 people. The owners are easy to reach if anything is needed. The place is decorated with a very cute bear motif.

I can't wait to visit again!

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 2 nights here while travelling to Yosemite National Park. It was the perfect amount of space for my husband and I and our 2 kids. The master bed was probably the most comfortable mattress I slept on during our 2 week trip. The kitchen had everything we needed for the meals we ate in. There was plenty of room in the living room to relax and hang out before bed. We loved looking at all of the bear decorations. On our first morning we were surprised at the "alarm clock" turkeys that strutted by gobbling all the way as if they thought they were roosters! There was a grocery store nearby which was nice. My only negative thing about our stay, and it was easily resolved is that I have am very sensitive to smells and there was an air freshener that was really bothering me. Once I found it, I tucked it into a cabinet until we were ready to leave and I was fine. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this vacation rental!

Very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and had all the amenities of home. We especially appreciated the stocked Keurig rack and cold water bottles in the refrigerator. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The door lock was perfect in that all four of us could come and go freely without asking someone for a key.

Clean, comfortable, all we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Bear Retreat in early May while visiting Yosemite. Everything was very clean and well maintained, beds were very comfortable, and kitchen was fully stocked with needed cookware and utensils, Keurig (and coffee), and many other helpful surprises that made our stay even more enjoyable. We took advantage of using the laundry room which is a short walk to an adjacent building. We were happy to meet Irene & Art who took time to provide a lot of advice about what to do while we were visiting the area, recommending restaurants, day trips - we wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend this place!
