We love staying at Mountain Resort. The units are spacious, the view from your balcony is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly. And there's so much to do in the surrounding area (snow park, State parks, wine tasting in Murphy's). We'll definitely be back!

We loved our condo at Mountain Retreat! It felt very much like a cabin. It was two stories with a sitting room, TV, potbellied stove, bathroom, dining area and kitchen up top and two bedrooms and two bathrooms downstairs. We also had long upper and lower balconies that over-looked a little creek. We spent several days sledding up on the... More

We were traveling for the first time with a toddler. PROS: Very friendly staff! The retreat provided us with a baby gate for the stairs as well as a high chair.

A wonderful place to play and relax The people that work there are awesome. Love them like family., There are lots of roads to travel and see the country. The gold rush country is very exciting to learn about and the passes over the High Sierras are something to experience.
