“A Trip To Remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We will Never Forget This Great Trip! Everything was Perfect. The beds,bathroom,living room,kitchen,and even dinning. Decent! I mean it was very cozy & warm feeling. Had a great fireplace. We also enjoyed the deck with a beautiful scenery and snow falling down. Next Day we went to dodge ridge it was only minuets away in the car. Came home to a place far away from home.

The Lazy Z was a great surprise! We had some trouble finding it, as the iPhone map has it in a slightly different location than it actually is and we arrived after dark. We called when we were about ready to give up, and the girl at the front desk was very helpful in getting us where we needed to go. The little cabin we had was cozy and clean with all of the amenities you would expect from a hotel room (coffee pot, toiletries, etc). The window heater was pretty loud, and the thermostat in it didn't seem to be working, so we had to run it for a few hours while we were awake and then turn it off to sleep, but it worked out okay. We went down to the lodge, and hung out by the fireplace for a bit and had a few drinks with others who were staying there. It is big and has tons of room to have an event/family reunion -- it's pretty quirky with the massive Elk head and all of the miscellaneous collectable items that are scattered about. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely recommend it to friends who are going to the area. Unfortunately it is about a three hour drive from the valley in Yosemite, so it would really only work for the way in or back out for San Franciscans.

We were accommodated for a last minute stay at the lazy Z. Great rate for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin which was very clean. Furnishings were a little dated, although expected for the reasonable pricing. Lovely grounds and common area.

I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. Disappointing and holiday killer. We specifically confirmed for cabin Manzanita #1B. Arrived location at 6.00 pm to check in - office closed but door sign clearly posted that we are to check in to Manzanita #1B; and was instructed to call 214 to check in. Called as instructed; the reception confirmed we are reserved and to be check in to Manzanita #1B; was told doors are not locked and keys were inside waiting. Drove to cabin. Doors are dead locked and unable to get in. We drove for to rest almost 4 hours and was unable to rest up. A kind hearted guest offer help to call the office, and was told that resort management will sent someone over to open up the door. We were stood up for another 40 minutes under the hot weather. The guest made a second call and was then told that they have changed our cabin to #1A because #1B is occupied - regardless that all confirmation document shows #1B. That was not what we paid for! We prepaid for it weeks in advance. Called the office immediately and was told that is closed and any complain can wait for tomorrow - and sleep where you are told too and SUCK IT UP. We called Expedia (our booking agent) to tell them our BAD experience and to demand immediate cancellation and refund. This was such a holiday killing experience that we decided to drive home right away! Expedia handle the cancellation; came back and told us that we were still have to pay for the first night even if Lazy Z has failed to honor the specific cabin reservation. and we did not stay for any night. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE!

My husband and I had the best time staying in one of their cottages. The Pool was too beautiful for words and the people staying there were the friendliest I have encountered in along time. We already booked our next trip for a month from now. We will continue to come back over and over again. On a scale from 1 to 10, it is a 10!

Room Tip: All of them are good!

I've been to a family reunion here, spent Christmas and New Year's Eve here (different years), and have come up various times to stay just to go skiing at Dodge Ridge with my kids, which is only about 30 minutes away. It's absolutely beautiful, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the cabins are cozy and have everything we need. We will be returning for many years, and hope my children do the same with their friends and eventually their families in the future!

Room Tip: The cottages are cozy and a great price! I've stayed in most of the cabins and enjoyed them all.

This is a cute resort that has a lot to offer if you want to hang out in Twaine Harte area, BUT I am very upset that it advertises itself as a Yosemite lodging ( I found it on trip advisor while searching for yosemite lodging). My car navigator said two and a half hours to Yosemite, and several people in town said it was at least two hours to the park. The hotel staff swore it was only an hour and forty five minutes! The hotel said others do the yosemite trip in a day, but our intent was to do Yosemite for multiple days. While the hotel shows a map on it's website, there are no distances and it is deceiving. The roads are windy, up and down mountains. Note, once in Yosemite, it is also a ton of driving.

Unfortunately, the hotel refused to refund the last 2 days of my 4 day trip, so that I could move closer to the park and actually visit it as planned. After multiple calls to expedia, with whom I booked the trip, I got a refund for the last two days.

On the plus side, my cabin blue oak was very large (maybe 1000 sq feet, but this is one of their bigger cottage/cabins), the hotel pool is super cute with waterfalls and a couple whirlpools and a wading area for smaller kids. Great for kids that are not too crazy, and won't bonk their heads on the rocks on the side. Also game room seemed new. Pool area is really pleasant. Great place if you just want to hang out in Twaine Harte. Fyi don't miss the little coffee shop in Twaine Harte that has a garden shop attached, called Blossom cafe I think. Awesome food and a lovely place to sit.
