Lazy Z Resort
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We have just left Lazy Z and absolutely loved it. The pool and jacuzzi are beautiful and the cabin, although a wee bit dated, had everything we needed. There is a large clubhouse and poolside bar which would be ideal for big groups. The staff were helpful - and an added bonus, we saw deer every day in the resort grounds and the surrounding countryside is lovely

We enjoyed our three day stay wth the Lazy "Z" family. What a fun place for friends and or family to enjoy being together. Loved he water feature and the club house. The cabins had everything we needed to make great meals and then sit back and relax. We will be returning as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Cabins are all nice but we enjoyed being closer to the clubhouse.

My parents and I wanted to stay in the Sierras and close to Yosemite. Though Yosemite Valley was 2 hours away, we still decided to stay at this hotel. We were very pleased with the Lazy Z Resort. We called ahead and told them we were arriving late. They put a map by the office and left our cabin open for us. There were towels, bathroom amenities, a grill, a full kitchen and living room, etc. It was a perfect little home away from home. On our 2nd day, we traveled to Yosemite and back. Definitely doable but it does take awhile. We were so pleased with the Lazy Z that we didn't mind the travel time. Twain Harte was also an incredibly cute town. We got breakfast (bagels, sandwiches, and amazing breakfast drinks) at a little cafe right in town and then that night went back to The Rock for dinner. And downtown Twain Harte was only 1.5 miles away from the Lazy Z. The pool was very impressive. Rocks, waterfalls, and built in hot tubs made it an amazing retreat after a hard day of hiking around Yosemite. And it's a small hotel so there aren't huge crowds at the hotel which made it so much more relaxing. Check out was at 11am and we only had to be out of the cabin by 11am but could stay on the properties till 1pm.
Overall I was very impressed with the Lazy Z.

Absolutely amazing stay. Cottage 14 was perfect for us. Bunk beds for the kids and double for mom and dad. Kitchenette and bathroom. Spotless and cozy. Location was ideal within a short drive of downtown and 35 min from Dodge Ridge. Plan on coming back for the summer. Don't miss out on this place!

We planned a 3 night New Years trip at somewhat last notice and booked a cottage at the Lazy Z as that was what was left. We arrived at about midnight and as we had called ahead to warn of our late arrival we knew to stop at the office and check out the map. We found our cottage easily and were pleased with what we saw. It was unlocked and looked charming inside but was freezing cold especially as the snow had arrived. The heater worked very well at warming everything up but was very loud and constant with no thermostat to turn it off. The fan roared all night and our sleep was poor because of it. Our bed was not especially great as the box spring appeared to have a broken corner but we were comfortable enough. The next day we drove down to Walmart in Sonora and bought a small space heater that worked for the rest of our stay. I would recommend anyone staying in a cottage in winter to bring extra bedding, heater or electric blanket in order to avoid the cottage heat having to be on all night.
That was really the only negative for us as we really enjoyed the rest of our stay. The cottage was rustic and small but attractive with a bench seat (where we found an extra blanket the day we left) small table, and little extras that we appreciated. There wasn't a clothes closet but lots of hooks were provided. There was only an overhead light so bring a book light if you want to read for very long. A television was provided but we never turned it on. We brought supplies to make breakfasts in the mini-kitchen provided. We used the microwave to cook omelets in our mugs and there was Keurig coffee maker as well as another regular one, dishes, utensils, soap, kitchen towels etc. The sun streamed in as we sat at our little kitchen table and our surroundings were especially pleasant.
When we came back to our cottage after a New Years Eve dinner out, there was a complimentary bottle of champagne sitting on our porch with an invitation to use their club house until 1am. I considered that a very thoughtful gesture.
We never explored the grounds or clubhouse but do look forward to a future trip. With a little prep a winter trip here is an excellent way to enjoy the scenery and far more comfortable than a generic motel room.

We booked a cottage last minute the week after Christmas. Got there around 10pm. Turned the heat on and it worked for about 20 minutes. My husband called the main number and they transferred him to someone off site. He was sent to check out another cottage that was supposed to be unlocked. It wasn't and it was a messy inside. We have a 4 year old and a 10 week old baby - a freezing cottage was not okay. Finally a man arrives with a space heater. It worked slowly but was okay for the night. The next morning my husband told the front desk about the broken wall heater as we left for the day. We got back in the evening to no heat. The space heater did not keep the cottage warm. Once again we called the main number since the office was closed and got transferred to someone offsite. He was two hours away and couldn't help us. He got someone to bring a second space heater which continually tripped a circuit breaker! Useless. I went to speak to a person at the front desk during the 11am check out and guess what?! No one there at 11:00am! Ridiculously bad service. Never again.

We will Never Forget This Great Trip! Everything was Perfect. The beds,bathroom,living room,kitchen,and even dinning. Decent! I mean it was very cozy & warm feeling. Had a great fireplace. We also enjoyed the deck with a beautiful scenery and snow falling down. Next Day we went to dodge ridge it was only minuets away in the car. Came home to a place far away from home.
