We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite National Park and found the accommodation comfortable and the hosts welcoming. It’s located between the Wawona Hotel and Yosemite Village, minutes away from the turn off for Glacier Point and as the name suggests has a “bear” theme :)

We stayed for 3 nights in Little Bear Cottage at the end of a 3 week holiday in California and were grateful for the homely touches after being away from our own home and in and out of hotels for a while. No wifi as the other reviews suggest, but while we found it strange to be 'isolated' for 3... More

First, the good. The people who run Cozy Bear are nice and welcoming. The location is great--close to all the major stuff to see in Yosemite. Basics were also met, meaning the sheets and towels were clean, etc. Beyond the basics, however, Cozy Bear Cottages were a disappointment. My objections are as follows: *Cleanliness a problem. The cottage was dotted... More

We recently stayed in Little Bear cottage owned by Neal and Carole and it suited our needs ideally. You are quite a way from civilisation so you have to take food and supplies with you but it is a lot lot closer than some places advertising as being in Yosemite. It is a 40 minute drive to the valley floor... More

It's been a long time since our stay so I'm a little fuzzy on details...but I remember the owners being really friendly and the location being excellent. Lodging in Yosemite is always kind of a crap shoot. Oakhurst is just too far away IMO. Oakhurst hotels will say they're only 20 minutes from the park...what they don't say is that's... More

We (two couples - sisters and BiLs) stayed at Cozy Bear South over Labor Day weekend, and it was a very good choice. The location is excellent. Although nothing is really close or easy to get to in Yosemite, this cottage was a relatively easy drive to both Glacier Point, where we went for a ranger talk and spectacular sunset,... More

We booked our accommodations late to Yosemite and were fortunate enough to get this vacation rental. The location alone is worth staying there. You are minutes from the road to Glacier Point and a reasonable drive North to the Valley and South to Mariposa Grove. We stayed here 3 nights. The rental is part of a duplex. There is a... More

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at this cottage for 2 nights. This house had an excellent location, with a close drive to Glacier Point, Tunnel View, Yosemite Valley and Wawona. The rooms were not large, but very comfortable. There were 2 sets of queen beds and 1 twin, 1 bathroom, A small kitchen with everything you need for cooking. There... More

Neil and Carol were unbelievably gracious and generous during our stay and helped us avoid near disaster. First, Neil was helping us bring our bags in when he saw my handicapped mother struggling up the stairs. He consulted privately with Carol and came back a few minutes later with an offer for us to stay in a unit below theirs... More
