We live in Canada and own a time share at Banff Gate Mountain Resort, and we love the quiet of the mountain setting and the abundance of nearby outdoor activities. We were told that Mountain Retreat Resort was very similar in many ways, and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the local area and took in several of the nearby... More

A little old and out of date, but quaint. No Cell Phone reception at all in the resort. The part I really didn't like were the very steep stairways in the apartment. It is quite a ways off the beaten path, but is really near the Calaveras Big Trees State Park with awesome views of the Giant Sequoias!

Wonderful time spent in a smaller mountain resort (just over 30 units) where you feel like you have your own cabin in the woods. Spacious, well laid out condo. Not fancy, but just right for a family vacation. Loved the air conditioning! Three decks to enjoy the outdoor beauty. The newly remodeled clubhouse is filled with activities - indoor pool/hot...

We visited the resort last year and are coming bacvk next month just because we had such a great time. The accomodations are rustic, but that is the charm of a mountain villa in the middle of tall trees and many natural resources to explore. The staff of the resort should be rated "A #1". There was no question or... More

Had an excellent time at this resort. Arrived on Friday (3 July, 2014) and were greeted with a free barbeque from 2-4pm. Food was great. About the accommodations: We stayed at the Sierra building in the more secluded part of the property, where the backyard/patio is about 15-20 feet above the top floor of our unit. The unit itself has... More
