This was our first time in Arnold, CA and of course first time in this resort and we loved it so much that we can't wait to go back. Sheila was an amazing help and a wonderful person. We stayed in a Calistoga, 2 bedroom unit that accommodated 8 people easily. The furnishings were a bit dated, but very comfortable.... More

Very nice stay! We were only here one night so not enough time to explore all the ammenities but just what we needed. Loved the upstairs and downstairs and balcony view. The washer and dryer were perfect and great kitchen for preparing food for our next leg of our trip. The indoor pool and hot tub were nice. We didn't... More

We went to visit our daughter who is working at the Wolfeboro Scout Camp about a half hour away. Great location (a little hard to find if you have not saved/printed direction) since mobile service is poor. Clean, spacious, and excellent amenities. Beds comfortable, kitchen, TV'S, and WiFi. Friendly staff with passes to outdoor activities. Would book again without hesitation.

Fantastic cabins, a lot of room for the whole family. Really comfortable beds. Nice pools, both outside and inside. Outside pool was big, deep and had a diving board. Movies for the kids. Climate was perfect, warm during the day and cool during the night.

I had a wonderful first visit to this location. It was very peaceful and you truly felt like you were a million miles away from the stress. The unit I stayed in was large and we could relax on the first floor or second floor patio or sit upstairs and soak up the view. The only negative is that cell... More

We rented a 2 bedroom condo for one night. It's a great value in a beautiful setting. The resort is dated but rooms were clean and quiet. The location is great off route 4 in Arnold, CA. The scenery can't be beat.

Stayed one night with a family of 4. Hotel is about a mile off main highway and parking is free. Free wifi is included. A golf course is adjacent to the hotel.

I just spent a week at Mountain Retreat and hated to leave. Nestled among the pines with a stream that runs in spring and early summer, it is a place of peace and serenity. The cottage was very clean, and the staff is the best. My stay included golf, swimming, and dining privileges at Sequoia Woods Golf and Country Club... More

We loved our little cottage which included everything we needed including a little outside deck. It is very close to the Big Trees Park and is about halfway between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe (two of the other spots we wanted to see). We had a great stay and also borrowed some DVDs for the evening to enjoy with our wine,... More
