We are a family who travels frequently. We live only a few hours from this location and were looking forward to our stay. Had things worked out differently they could have expected our business each year. It is extremely rare for me to need to cancel a reservation and I therefore used a booking service to book our stay (booking.com)... More

I have been a timeshare owner at Mt. Retreat since the facility was built. Between my family and friends, we own 6 individual weeks at this wonderful get-away. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. The units are comfortable and well-stocked. I love coming to this resort at least 2-3 times per year. There are some excellent restaurants in the...

We stayed in Calaveras Condo #14. Everyone has stated these condos need updating but we found it very nice. The beds were out of this world comfortable! Each bedroom upstairs had it's own balcony which was nice. There is a main bathroom upstairs and the bedroom with the king bed had it's own bathroom as well. The king bedroom also... More

We have been here a number of times and it is better than ever. The rebuilding of the clubhouse damaged by a fire and includes the indoor swimming pool, exercise room, pool table area, business center, lobby and family area has made the resort more enjoyable than ever. The photo is of the family area above the indoor pool. It... More

If you're looking for a getaway that allows you to totally escape the city, this is your place. Using Mountain Retreat as a base camp, we hiked 8+ miles in Big Trees, zip lined and rappelled at Moaning Cavern, spent a few days in Yosemite, and even drove back to San Francisco for a night, but in the midst of...

We stayed here for the first time this year on our ski trip we only stayed one night but was totally impressed with the whole resort. We are already planning another trip to the resort for a four day weekend. You get so much for the price Wich is very reasonable. Can't say enough good things about this resort.
