“Great place with fantastic views, friendly host”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our family of three spent two nights at Bob's during a two week tour of California. Bob had a bottle of wine for us upon arrival, and a refrigerator stocked with condiments an other basic needs. We enjoyed conversation with him and some other guests around his fire pit, and our son enjoyed the above ground pool. The views were amazing and the sunrise over the mountains was breathtaking. It was a bit of a drive into Yosemite for the day, but it was a beautiful scenic drive. Bob had a great binder with lots of information on Yosemite that helped us plan our day in the park, and provided information on things to do/places to eat/shop in the small town of North Fork.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice getaway in a quaint little town. The only warning is that the shower has a slanted ceiling, so if you are much over 6 ft tall it may be a bit cramped (my 6'1" husband could stand straight, but anyone taller may have an issue).

“Great View”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Bob was very helpful when we arrived. He had great information on how to visit Yosemite and the surrounding area. He was very relaxed and inviting. We wish we would have had more time to stay in the area.

“Everything was perfect!”
Reviewed 20 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Bob, Last minute made reservations for us to stay. When we arrived the place was set up perfectly with the fire place on and romantic lighting. The refrigerator had condiments in it in case we needed. This place is perfect for those that want to get away from it all and have a romantic evening in a beautiful house.

“Brilliant, relaxing retreat”

We have just returned from 4 nights at Bob's mountain retreat and cannot speak highly enough of it. We travelled with our 17 month old daughter and Bob provided a travel cot and bedding for us which was a real help. The accommodation was spotlessly clean with lots of helpful notes around the place to guide you on using the air con, the TV etc. We had amazing weather our entire stay so had a BBQ every night but also made use of the toaster, electric hot plate and microwave in the kitchen.

There was oil, seasoning, sugar, coffee, hot chocolate, and some condiments provided as well as a generous bottle of wine from Bob.

We spent a day in Yosemite Park and used a few of the wide selection of info in the rental regarding different hikes, trails, days out etc. We also spent some time at Bass Lake which was lovely and warm and easy to find a little bit of beach to yourself.

The pool was a big hit with our daughter and Bob provided extra beach towels and inflatables which was great. The water was always very warm despite being unheated and the view from the pool is unbelievable.

All in all we had an amazing time here and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.
