Excellent accueil dans une maison au calme, avec en prime des cerfs dans le jardin et dans toute la résidence...merveilleux endroit avec un lac tout près John et Mary sont des hôtes discrets et d'une grande gentillesse. Quel dommage de n'y être restés que 2 nuits.

We stayed for three days as a home base for day hikes along the Tioga Pass in Yosemite. John & Mary were great hosts and the place has everything you want/need. We ate breakfast at the house before heading out, packed lunches for the hikes, and then ate dinner in Groveland at the end of the day. A soak in the hot tub was the perfect night cap and we were ready for the next day.

A true mountain retreat. Clean and well presented. An easy, close drive for sightseeing in Yosemite NP. We spent most of our time when not exploring, on the back patio enjoying the peaceful surroundings.

John is extremely easy to work with. Flexible, quick to help and quick to respond. I would definitely stay here again due to the affordability of the place and the 6 of us were provided our own beds The keurig machine was an extremely nice touch to this place. I loved the grill! Kitchen was a bit small but had all what we needed to make dinner and breakfast. Only wished the small fridge had a freezer cause I wanted to store ice cream on a hot Labor Day weekend Nice location. Only about 1 hour 15 from Yosemite Village area. 10 min walk to the Lake which we swam in. It's a nice pleasant safe gated community.

L'appartement est très agréable, grand, propre, entouré de nature. Nous n'y sommes restés qu'une nuit, étape entre Yosémite et San Francisco. John et Mary n'étaient pas là mais Michelle était là pour nous donner toutes les informations et répondre a toutes nos demande. Tout s'est vraiment très bien passé et quel plaisir de croiser biches et faons en se promenant dans le domaine !
