Fantastic cabins, a lot of room for the whole family. Really comfortable beds. Nice pools, both outside and inside. Outside pool was big, deep and had a diving board. Movies for the kids. Climate was perfect, warm during the day and cool during the night.

I had a wonderful first visit to this location. It was very peaceful and you truly felt like you were a million miles away from the stress. The unit I stayed in was large and we could relax on the first floor or second floor patio or sit upstairs and soak up the view. The only negative is that cell...

We rented a 2 bedroom condo for one night. It's a great value in a beautiful setting. The resort is dated but rooms were clean and quiet. The location is great off route 4 in Arnold, CA. The scenery can't be beat.

Stayed one night with a family of 4. Hotel is about a mile off main highway and parking is free. Free wifi is included. A golf course is adjacent to the hotel. Cellular coverage is spotty and make sure to have a map if you are not familiar with the area since GIS may not work. Two-story Cabin/Room was very...

I just spent a week at Mountain Retreat and hated to leave. Nestled among the pines with a stream that runs in spring and early summer, it is a place of peace and serenity. The cottage was very clean, and the staff is the best. My stay included golf, swimming, and dining privileges at Sequoia Woods Golf and Country Club...

We loved our little cottage which included everything we needed including a little outside deck. It is very close to the Big Trees Park and is about halfway between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe (two of the other spots we wanted to see). We had a great stay and also borrowed some DVDs for the evening to enjoy with our wine,...

Great surroundings up in the woods, beautiful golf course nearby, and a quiet retreat from a noisy lifestyle. This stay was the highlight of our trip. We enjoyed being able to cook a meal in our full kitchen, and dine together at the table. The rooms were well appointed, comfortable, and quiet. My girls would like to point out that...

Mountain Retreat is the perfect place to chill out and relax among pine and cedar trees and the songs of various mountain birds. On a chilly night you can build a real fire in the fireplace (no fake gas logs!) that provide the crackle and pop we used to hear as kids. The staff is great: friendly and helpful. The...
