“Wow! What a treat”
Reviewed 30 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We spent 3 nights at the Bear Retreat whilst visiting Yosemite and what a lovely stay we have had!

Irene was a great host with quick communication and helped really quickly when I had to change our dates. There were lots of extras in the apartment including gummi bears, popcorn, bottles of water etc which were greatly appreciated.

The unit itself was much better than the pictures show, there was plenty of room for the 4 of us (2 ad & 2 older teens) and it was spotlessly clean! The beds were the best I have slept I during our California trip and were so very comfortable. The towels and flannels provided were lovely and fluffy/thick and there was all the toiletries and kitchen sticks that we could possibly have needed!

Full sized fridge/freezer and cooler plus microwave and the air conditioning unit was a definite plus for us too.

It’s about an hour from Yosemite in a lovely town and if we have the opportunity to come back to Yosemite we will definitely be looking to book Irene’s place before we look anywhere else.

Thanks for hosting us.
