“Beautiful place to stay for a visit to Yosemite”

We really enjoyed staying at the mountain retreat in the studio apartment above Bob's garage. Bob is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is nice. There were just two of us and it was just right. We barbecued hamburgers in the patio area. There is a small pool too. If you go, wait until after dark and go to the end of the driveway to see a starry, starry night. It took about two hours to get to Yosemite Valley, but about a half hour to get to the closest entrance. Leave early! Traffic is bad. We also went to Bass Lake, and that was nice, too.

Bob's place is exactly as described. Secluded and lovely. Only 1.5 hours from Yosemite Valley. We spent the day in nature and came back to relax by the fire pit and stargaze. I recommend this rental to anyone.

We stayed at Bob's for two nights and loved it. The views are stunning and it was so relaxing. The property has everything you could wish for in a rental and a really friendly and helpful host in Bob. North Fork has some great amenities and is a great base to explore Yosemite and Bass Lake from. We can't wait to go back and visit.

“What a gem!!!”
Reviewed January 26, 2017 for a stay in April 2016

A friend of mine recommended this place to us and from his account it should be well worth it! He couldn't stop talking about the beauty of the place and the friendliness of the staff.

I went on you Yosemiteretreats.com and have booked a surprise trip for me and the wife for June...will update afterward. :)

Thank you Robert for allowing us to stay with you. We truly enjoyed staying at your house. The view from Robert's house is amazing. It's quiet and cozy. Great location to explore Yosemite National Park. If this is first time visiting - I recommend the following:

Don't rent a huge SUV. Driving around Yosemite becomes a challenge. Make sure to do your groceries before heading to Robert's place. They have a very small grocery store nearby. Always check the expiration dates. Trust me.
Gas up and leave early to Yosemite National Park. It's close by in distance but you'll see a ton of cars coming/leaving the park. Expect delays. Enjoy nature!

We had two comfortable nights here,and found ourselves with star filled nights and days midst Bob's bird feeders and nice trees and plants. Bob was so accommodating that we immediately felt relaxed,assured,and welcome.The space is in a nice, fairly roomy loft above the double garage in the photo, with an easy, well-lit stairway to the private entrance. A nice kitchenette includes a hotplate, skillet, microwave, toaster, electric kettle, refrigerator, etc. The space is air conditioned and a ceiling fan makes it comfy. Sofa, easy chair, coffee table and a small dining table with a couple of chairs and a wardrobe/chest of drawers complete the furnishings. Out the door on the landing are great views, and there is a hot tub and bbq. It is an easy drive to the park and there are lots of restaurants and a good big Vons grocery about 30 minutes away.

Bob was a very hospitable, helpful and knowledgable host. Our room had lots of information on hikes and activities. Yosemite Park was a 45 minute drive but there are great hikes outside of the park that are nearby. We had the room at the top of the house so had a great view from the porch. There was a hot tub to use at the end of a long day. This was a great place to stay if like us you love great views and solitude
