This is the first time I am staying in someone's house and the experience is unforgettable. The place is exactly what it states on the website and the room is exactly what it is on the website. I stayed there with my girlfriend for two nights and we just loved it. We even saw the couple of deers walking across the yard while relaxing on the balcony. Thanks Bob for making our trip memorable.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Bob's place. Bob is a great host and his place is quite neat and clean. The place is located outside of the park, so it needs some driving to enter the park, considering the narrow mountain road.

“Excellent mountain stay”

My wife, our friend and I stayed in the upstairs portion of this property over a weekend. It was a great little cozy spot, was comfortable and well maintained. My one and only complaint is that it was smaller than expected. To be fair, the interior pictures are exactly what you get, but from what I could tell online, the bottom rents for about or very close to the same cost but seems allot larger.

Once you get past this, it was a great stay. You are about an hour from the park but plenty of small towns nearby to explore on the way. we got a little off track on the way to the Yosemite and ended up at an awesome railroad museum that was moving a few trains around. Its things like this that make up for the drive.

The place stayed plenty warm for our November stay, and the fire-pit and grill were easy to access. The property was clean and well maintained, and the lighting made it very easy for us to see our way around in the middle of the night.

This isn't a five star resort and there are not any gourmet restaurants, but for the price and area it is a perfect little "cabin" getaway.

“cozy comfy place in a romantic retreat close to all spots”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Great Mtn retreat to stay close to Yosemite and other spots in convenient distance. We stayed 3 nights and went to the park 2 full days. We met Bob as a very funny and easy host with warmth and hospitality. The studio is very new and valuable, it offers lots of comforts (kitchenette, free movies, books). Highlight and fun was fun sitting out at the fire pit next to the pool.

“Clean, Well Kept, and Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed two nights at Bob's and found it to be a great place to come home to after long days in both Yosemite and King's Canyon. The room is fairly cozy especially once we inflated the twin air bed for our third adult to sleep on, however since we spent most of our time in the parks it worked out just fine. The property is well maintained, clean and has most everything you would need. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and I slept really well which is unusual for me when I'm not home. I did note however that in the amenities it listed a stove which is not accurate. There was a hot plate in one of the cupboards. We were thinking of making breakfast until we saw that was really not an option. We were glad we did not pick up groceries before we got to the property. One other thing to note is that the shower ceiling is sloped and not very high. This was not a problem for me but if you are 6' it may be a little difficult to fit in there. I know if my friends husband had been there he would have had to stoop over to get to the shower head. If you do plan on buying groceries I would not recommend choosing the grocery store right in North Fork. We stopped in for water, etc. and were greeted by mice running up and down the aisles. I would absolutely stay at this location again. I thought it was a great value for the money.
