Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi!



Just wanted to send a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your Cedar Chalet. We found the house in excellent condition and a perfect accommodation for the five of us. We loved the peace and quiet of the evenings, and were very thankful that we didn't opt to stay in the Village - too busy for us!



We had one day of serious hiking ... my husband, daughter, and niece hiked the trail of Yosemite Falls... they made it safely to the top to

take in the view and savor that feeling of a major accomplishment!

Our niece's husband and I found some "easy" trails to explore and really enjoyed ourselves. Our timing was perfect for this visit - plenty of water to show off the splendor of the falls, and beautiful summer flowers all along the way. And, perfect weather... which allowed us to see the most amazing stars on our evening "Stargazing"

tour at Glacier Point.



One evening, we decided to watch the sunset from the fire ranger station near your chalet - but we never reached our destination - we encountered one of your huge park bears - right in the middle of the trail! Everyone hightailed it out of there - I did pause long enough to snap a picture though - to prove the event to our friends!



So, we thank you for sharing your little corner of paradise.. and perhaps we will return at some point in the future - we would like to share this experience with our son, his wife, and our new grandchild some day... her pregnancy is the reason they could not travel with us ... but we all agree that the sacrifice will be well worth it!



Hope that your summer goes well, and that you are enjoying each day.



Sincerely, Dolly Canterbury

Great location, comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

The home came fully equipped and was comfortable for 6 guests. Kitchen in good order, no need to bring additional equipment. Spa great after a long day of hiking. Only issue we experienced was very limited Internet service. If you want to get away from it all this works, if you need to stay connected it may not provide that.

Mid-May Springtime Delight

  • 4 of 5

Our three generation mini-reunion was quite comfortable in the Chalet. The location was just right for all the various sites. We used the hot tub several times and the pool table was great entertainment too. It was well equipped as well. (minimun cutlery for a full house however) Definitely would return.

We had a wonderful time at the appropriately named Storybook Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

After visiting the Yosemite sights each day, returning to the cabin couldn't have been more relaxing, whether we were sitting on the deck enjoying the quiet, sitting in the spa, playing pool and/or checkers, or watching the family of deer that shared the neighborhood. The cabin was well designed, beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the whole setup was very workable. We were a family of seven and there was something for everyone, even the Grandchildren enjoyed playing outside. We hope to return during the winter season, but in the meantime all the wonderful memories we have will have to do!!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here.It's location to Yosemite was convenient. The local stores had reasonable groceries. The house had everything we needed to cook at home. Everything worked, only issue would be driveway entrance but we would gladly stay here again.
