We traveled with another couple in late May to visit Yosemite National Park and based on information on the Yosemite Rose web site decided the cottage would be perfect for the four of us. Upon arrival we discovered some surprises! The staircase to the upstairs bedroom is on the OUTSIDE of the cottage (with insufficient lighting for making the journey up after dark). The air conditioner for the upstairs bedroom is a "free standing" unit that is not adequate for the area. The half bath upstairs is built under the slope of the roof and we could only take one step inside the door (had to pull a chair in to sit in front of the sink for brushing teeth, shaving, etc.). On a more positive note, the room was spacious and there were windows on each side of the room -- breeze at night was wonderful and birds singing in the morning were a delight!
While we knew in advance that cottage guests were not included in the breakfast at the main inn, we did not know that we would receive NO service during our stay. Our rooms were never serviced, and the trash was never discarded. Also, do not count on the wireless Internet! The router is in the main house, and the only time we could get online was late at night after other guests were asleep. There is a nice flat screen TV in the living room downstairs, and you guessed it, the satellite connection did not work!!
We stayed for the duration of our reservation because the lodging options in the area are minimal! We would recommend that you stay in the main house if you choose Yosemite Rose. It seems guests there have a more pleasant experience!
