Perfect home for visiting Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

The house is the true definition of “Nature’s Retreat” as it’s located just outside of downtown Oakhurst on private property. The comfortable bed and hot tub are bonuses after spending the day at Yosemite. Terri was great with communicating with us prior to our arrival. We would stay here again!

Nice quiet place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying at Nature's Retreat while visiting Yosemite. The house was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a day of hiking. Terri was helpful whenever I had a request or question.

Clean, cozy and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for a couple. The kitchen is a bit small if you're into cooking though, so pack easy meals. Also bring your own olive oil! You never realize how much you need olive oil until ya don't have it!

There's an area right behind the house that has trails for hiking around and they are so beautiful. Not too far off you'll find what looks like an abandoned old campground. Super cool!

We hot tubbed after and it was the perfect way to relax. It felt secluded too because there's a little fence put up in the area. The owners home is somewhat near but you don't ever really notice. They are very quiet.

The front porch is nice for a sit at night, we listened to the rain with a blankey. :)

Also their movie collection is amazing, we didn't even use Netflix. They have things like a Bluetooth speaker, a flashlight and clean tested water from the faucet that are extremely convenient.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place for a party of two, and will most likely find my way back to stay again.

Very attentive and responsive owner. Thank you Terri. :)

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and our dog had a wonderful stay at Nature's Retreat. The cabin in spacious and very clean. Our dog loved running through the trails that lead off cabin. But dog owners beware, the woods are filled with tiny foxtails. Coming back to the hot tub after a long day visiting Yosemite was the prefect reprieve from the cold. We will definelty be returning here during our next trip to Yosemite!

Quaint, quiet, and peaceful - not far from so much natural beauty!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, the bed super comfortable, and the hot tub a MUST after long days of hiking in Yosemite.


Terri was easy to communicate with and very responsive. When you need something, she is right there to help.

We really loved her book of ideas for visiting Yosemite. Very helpful! We used parts of her plan to make our plan!

The place is very peaceful and quiet. You can see so many stars at night from the hot tub!

Just an hour or so from the south entrance of Yosemite and there are also a few little trails just behind the house.

Plenty of stores and places to eat in Oakhurst - it feels like a secluded mountain town, but you get all the basic amenities of a regular city.

Great to have wifi and TV available at night!

Minuses (very minor):

The kitchen and bathroom are both very small. The kitchen has a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, coffee & tea pots, and a toaster - so it has everything you need. Just a small space for it all. The bathroom only has one small shower, but it is stocked with soaps, so that was helpful.

Quiet and lovely.

  • 5 of 5

A peaceful retreat; clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. Communications with the owner were courteous and prompt. We told Terri we were arriving late and she kindly left lights on for us. Entry codes, gate, and key all worked fine with no glitches. The kitchen was small but functional; the master bedroom had plenty of space, a big closet, and a comfortable king-size bed.

We had trouble with the tv in the living room--the directions in the book said to do one thing, then on the back of one of the remotes it said to use HDMI 3, and neither method worked. We could have called the owner for help, but it was late and we didn't want to bother her. Eventually we figured out that what worked was HDMI 2, and after that had no problems. We used the laundry facilities and detergent and softener was provided--very helpful.

It was nice to be able to grill on the back patio, and stargazing at night in the hot tub was delightful! All in all, a great place to stay.

Holiday rates apply for 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Please note, my homes fees are based typically for a party of two in off season, (a couple sharing one room) as couples are the majority of travelers in off season and I feel they should not pay the same as a large party. By accepting my couples rate you agree to keep the middle guest bedroom and bath closed off and not used. If any additional guests the fee is $25 per guest after two per night. Any additional guest brought into the home without permission forfeits your deposit as well as the guest fee still having to be paid. Thanks for your understanding.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
