We have traveled a lot and stayed in various places from fancy hotels to cabins, and this is one of the most special places we have ever stayed in. First of all, the hosts have worked so hard to create a place that truly is memorable and enjoyable for their guests. Eddie (who we mainly interacted with) is the real deal that is so hard to find in the travel industry nowadays; he truly cares about his guests and wants them to have the best vacation possible and he goes above and beyond to make sure they do!
The other reviews and the pictures on the website give you an indication of how lovely the bedrooms and the great room are, and they are even better in person. You can feel the care that has gone into every detail: from dreamy pillow top beds, silky sheets, beautiful furniture, to mini-refrigerators and coffee makers in each room. The great room is a gorgeous high ceiling room with a fireplace that Eddie built himself and it is so relaxing to sit there and watch the flames dance. The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to cook all our meals there which was an incredible benefit because we are on a special diet and cannot easily eat out. Then there is the spacious deck with gorgeous views of the mountain forest and a perfect place for nighttime stargazing. Our children jumped to their hearts' content on the trampoline and enjoyed the playstructure in the spacious backyard.
Having young children of his own, Eddie was very sweet with our children, answering their questions and even finding the perfect show for them to watch. The Yosemite decor and information throughout helps to maximize your experience of the natural treasures nearby. I especially loved the selection of Yosemite videos that he often plays in the great room, inspiring us to go explore on our own. And of course, Eddie is ready to offer suggestions and tips to help you maximize your time and have the experiences you want.
Compared to much of what is available in the area, this place is an amazing deal for all that you get, but beyond that, it is also simply a treasure to stay in a place that is run by people with so much heart. Thank you Eddie and family!
**It is hard to sum up what a treasure the Haus is, but I feel the reviews here, do give an honest telling, so I recommend reading them too!**
