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.
