We really enjoyed staying at the mountain retreat in the studio apartment above Bob's garage. Bob is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is nice. There were just two of us and it was just right. We barbecued hamburgers in the patio area. There is a small pool too. If you go, wait until after dark and go to the end of the driveway to see a starry, starry night. It took about two hours to get to Yosemite Valley, but about a half hour to get to the closest entrance. Leave early! Traffic is bad. We also went to Bass Lake, and that was nice, too.
Bob's place is exactly as described. Secluded and lovely. Only 1.5 hours from Yosemite Valley. We spent the day in nature and came back to relax by the fire pit and stargaze. I recommend this rental to anyone.
We stayed at Bob's for two nights and loved it. The views are stunning and it was so relaxing. The property has everything you could wish for in a rental and a really friendly and helpful host in Bob. North Fork has some great amenities and is a great base to explore Yosemite and Bass Lake from. We can't wait to go back and visit.
A friend of mine recommended this place to us and from his account it should be well worth it! He couldn't stop talking about the beauty of the place and the friendliness of the staff.
I went on you Yosemiteretreats.com and have booked a surprise trip for me and the wife for June...will update afterward. :)
Thank you Robert for allowing us to stay with you. We truly enjoyed staying at your house. The view from Robert's house is amazing. It's quiet and cozy. Great location to explore Yosemite National Park. If this is first time visiting - I recommend the following:
Don't rent a huge SUV. Driving around Yosemite becomes a challenge. Make sure to do your groceries before heading to Robert's place. They have a very small grocery store nearby. Always check the expiration dates. Trust me.
Gas up and leave early to Yosemite National Park. It's close by in distance but you'll see a ton of cars coming/leaving the park. Expect delays. Enjoy nature!
