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. :)

About the neighborhood
This area has not changed much in the last 20 years and I'm sure it hasn't changed much from many years prior to that. This area is truly like taking a step back in time.
