The rooms although clean were rather cramped with insufficient space for storage. The extensive bear motifs did nothing to improve the overall look of the place which was rather dreary. The owner seemed very disinterested in the guests and there was no helpful introduction what Yosemite has to offer; not much apparently. He did, however, point us in the direction... More

Four adults in our party stayed two nights at the Cozy Bear. The primary focus of the owners is their bear decor and not customer service or comfort. The duplex home is tiny and over crowded with bear decor. In one bedroom there is less than a foot at the end of the bed. Basic items missing: no ice trays... More

A rather small semi detached, poorly designed house that is very close to the owners huge workshop which is equipped with every conceivable mechanical device, unfortunately the owner likes to play with his very noisy toys first thing in the morning, so you will be woken by the roar of his Bobcat fork lift followed by his compressor and tractor....

We stayed here with friend. Such a funny little place where every room is filled with bears and crafts. Neil made us welcome. After our long flight then drive from San Fran it was great to have the place to ourselves and relax. The valley is about 30 minutes away and the photo opportunities along the way are amazing. We...

My wife and I visited Yosemite for 3 days and slept in Cozy Bear for 2 nights. It's a great place to stay in, a bit outside of the valley but in a great location. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you need including a washing machine and a drier, and the only thing you need is just to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite National Park and found the accommodation comfortable and the hosts welcoming. It’s located between the Wawona Hotel and Yosemite Village, minutes away from the turn off for Glacier Point and as the name suggests has a “bear” theme :)

We stayed for 3 nights in Little Bear Cottage at the end of a 3 week holiday in California and were grateful for the homely touches after being away from our own home and in and out of hotels for a while. No wifi as the other reviews suggest, but while we found it strange to be 'isolated' for 3... More

First, the good. The people who run Cozy Bear are nice and welcoming. The location is great--close to all the major stuff to see in Yosemite. Basics were also met, meaning the sheets and towels were clean, etc. Beyond the basics, however, Cozy Bear Cottages were a disappointment. My objections are as follows: *Cleanliness a problem. The cottage was dotted... More

We recently stayed in Little Bear cottage owned by Neal and Carole and it suited our needs ideally. You are quite a way from civilisation so you have to take food and supplies with you but it is a lot lot closer than some places advertising as being in Yosemite. It is a 40 minute drive to the valley floor... More

It's been a long time since our stay so I'm a little fuzzy on details...but I remember the owners being really friendly and the location being excellent. Lodging in Yosemite is always kind of a crap shoot. Oakhurst is just too far away IMO. Oakhurst hotels will say they're only 20 minutes from the park...what they don't say is that's... More
