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

We have stayed here about 7 times, although this is the first time in 8 years. Every time has been great. The resort has all 2 bedroom condos with fully stocked kitchens. There are activities during the week that the kids love as well as an indoor pool, spa and sauna that are great. There are almost many things to... More

We stayed here in March. The resort is beautiful. It has a wonderful pool, spa, and game room. There are plenty activities to do close to the resort. The rooms are big and spacious for large families.

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...

I didn't want to review this place because I don't want anyone to know about it & book it all, it's so perfect! The staff is insanely nice, the units are big and I can't even say enough about it (you know what I mean if you live in the bay area). I have told a few people about it... More

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.

Hi Thank you for your review of Mountain Retreat Resort. We are happy that you found our property and also that you were able to enjoy Bear Valley Ski resort. Hopefully, next year we'll have lots of snow at the property and you'll be able to enjoy the sledding hill right next door! Until next time. Have a great day... More
