The hospitality was absolutely outstanding. The facilities are great. Very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. My stay felt like a home away from home. I plan to recommend the Mountain Retreat to all my friends and family.

My fiancé and I stayed here. I rented a condo. We were placed in the farthest building, which was unit 13 (best spot, request it!!!!!!). It was perfect, it had a stream going by and we were secluded. The resort is phenomenal. We loved it! The "condo" units are actually 2 story buildings with 2 bedrooms. On the second story,... More

We stayed for one night in their 2-bedroom condo (#2). The decor inside the condo is really dated. However, once you get past that its pretty comfortable with TVs, washer-dryers and a full kitchen. The condo was super clean with no smells, so that's a HUGE plus in my book. I'd rate the stay a "Good" one.

This is perfect for kids and family. I took my 11 year old and her best friend with us. They had a blast. Awesome play room and pool. Staff was extremely friendly. The room had everything we needed and more. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back with more family members. It easily fits 8 people.... More

My parents have owned here for over 15 years, and we have been owners for the past 3 years, and we love it. When Grand Pacific took over management a couple years ago, the resort started getting a much needed face lift. Although this is not the most luxurious resort out there, it has a cozy and rustic cabin feel.... More

This is our third visit to Mountain Retreat since we are owners here. It is wonderful place to rest from the stress of the city. My husband and children look forward to each visit and we always hate to leave. The staff are fantastic and the accommodations, though not luxurious, are definitely above average. My family loves this place and... More

We stayed at the resort in early December when Northern California got clobbered by a huge storm with high winds and lots of rain. Fortunately, the area around Arnold was relatively dry in comparison. During that week, we had good enough weather to walk around the giant sequoias in Calaveras Big Tree State Park, visit the Bear Valley ski area,... More

My family and I spent a week here and we would all agree we had a splendid time! It is such a beautiful place! I want to stay here more in the future. We went to the indoor pool and it was fantastic, it was heated to 80 to 85 degrees.
