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...

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,...

Great surroundings up in the woods, beautiful golf course nearby, and a quiet retreat from a noisy lifestyle. This stay was the highlight of our trip. We enjoyed being able to cook a meal in our full kitchen, and dine together at the table. The rooms were well appointed, comfortable, and quiet. My girls would like to point out that...

I have been an owner at Mt. Retreat since it was built. I have since purchased additional units, and both of my sisters and my daughter have also purchased weeks, and my good friends have also bought a week. I know this time is eligible for trade to other locations, but I have never done that, as I thoroughly enjoy...

Mountain Retreat is the perfect place to chill out and relax among pine and cedar trees and the songs of various mountain birds. On a chilly night you can build a real fire in the fireplace (no fake gas logs!) that provide the crackle and pop we used to hear as kids. The staff is great: friendly and helpful. The...

This place was tucked into beautiful woods. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the unit was huge. The enormous kitchen was amazingly well-equipped, and the beds were really comfortable. Didn't try the pool and hot tub but they looked fun!

We loved our unit location (#21) which backed to the woods and was beside a meditation bench and quiet. We enjoyed relaxing and sharing about the day on the deck.

The property is beautiful. If you golf, it's right there in your backyard. The rooms are a little old and some maintenance needs to be done to bring them back up to what I would call an excellent status, but the unit was very spacious. The downside is that our unit slept eight and had three bathrooms with toilets but...
