Find out why Cottage Retreat has received more than 40 five star reviews on a leading vacation rental site. In the cottage you’ll find all the modern amenities you will need in this newly renovated (9/2015) 3 bedroom cozy cottage with 2 full baths. When you walk into Cottage Retreat, you won't find the musty stuffiness, typical of many vacation rentals. There is all new vintage furniture. The modern kitchen has all new solid stone surface counters and is decorated to look and feel like an old style farm house. The cottage decor is professionally done to feel comfy with great function. We have installed 3 flat screen TV's (Smart/Roku)for your enjoyment after you return from the park. Complimentary Netflix movies are provided in the living room. There is also free Wi-Fi for Internet or a 'working' holiday. The cottage can sleep 8 and A Pack & Play Crib/Playpen is provided. There are two outside sitting areas - one is a front porch looking into the forest and the other belongs to the master bedroom with its own private deck to sit, allowing some private time. A bbq is set at edge of the woods along with a rock fire pit. The outside area is large and level, making it a great place for kids to play, ride bikes and explore nearby. There are hiking trails on the 40 acres property for any days you want to stay and relax at home. If you wish to bring a pet, please make a notation in your booking request. At night, you'll want to settle around the fire pit, make smores and tell stories. Or just walk outdoors and be awe struck by the night sky filled with stars of the Milky Way - seemingly close enough to touch. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open, allowing you to enjoy watching your favorite movies or shows and to stay warm with the fireplace in the cooler months. We have central air-conditioning and heat for your comfort any time of the year and an all new easily accessible laundry area. Here is another nice unique feature - you won't be bothered while trying to sleep by creaky floorboards or people walking above - the downstairs master bedroom has no second floor above it. Your new home is a two story farm house cottage with pine accents from the natural surroundings. You’ll find two bedrooms upstairs and 1 bedroom downstairs with its own bath. Natural materials were used to accent the home’s history lending to its warmth and the charm of times gone by. Look and you’ll see wood in the home that's nearly 100 years old. The floors upstairs are original, but reworked during the special renovation. If you're looking to have a most special friends or family reunion, ask us about our nearby 2 bedroom Log House Retreat just several hundred feet away or our redone 2 bedroom Valerian Retreat - winner of over 100 five star reviews. Come and visit. You won’t want to leave. The Cottage Retreat is a great starting location for day trips to many points of interest including Yosemite: To Yosemite west entrance – Go north on route 49 to reach the arch rock highway 140 entrance that takes you through the historic town of Mariposa and along the valley floor of the scenic Merced River canyon. It is a beautiful drive which will take you about 45 minutes to an hour to reach the park. There are many places along the road to stop and enjoy the wild and scenic river. This area is known for spectacular wild flower viewing. To Yosemite south entrance – Go south on route 49 to reach Oakhurst - a larger town with many services, dining and shopping options. In Oakhurst, you will turn off to highway 41 east to wind your way up the mountain into Yosemite Park through the quaint little village of Fish Camp and Wawona – both places of many interests. Near Wawona is the must see of the Mariposa Grove of giant redwoods. As you drive further toward Yosemite just after the tunnel, be sure to pull off to see the spectacular view of the Yosemite valley from above. Cottage Retreats is owned by Cottage Retreat LLC.More

About the neighbourhood
Set on 40 acres, the property will invite you to take hikes and enjoy the forested and scenic views. You can see the Sierras from locations on the property. Peace and quiet are the best things you’ll notice when you stay at the cottage. The cottage is set back just off the main route 49 and is half way between two entrances to Yosemite Park. You’ll want to sample both easy but different drives into Yosemite - either via the west entrance with hwy 140 along the valley floor beside the Merced River or via the south entrance with Hwy 41 through the Sierra mountains.
Getting around
Bass Lake is located fifteen minutes from Oakhurst. It is a hopping place during the warm weather for water sports and just catching some sun and a picnic for the day. Bass Lake offers water sports rentals, shops, casual as well as fine dining options. 'Ducey's on the Lake' is a favorite restaurant. There are 2 local golf courses just minutes away: Sierra Meadows and River Creek. During the winter months you can travel to Badger Pass to enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. With the nearby historic gold mining town of Mariposa, you can explore activities throughout the year, like festivals, art shows and wineries. You can also try out a zip line and river rafting in the summer, as well as horseback riding in the forest
