Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • If you are going to Yosemite, this is the place to stay - only a 30 minute drive to the park entrance where, within an enchanted forest of your own, you can star gaze in a hot tub. If you are not going to Yosemite and want to get away from the city, this with rejuvenate your soul. Terri is a considerate and clear communicator and the cabin is charming and rustic, which is just what I wanted.

  • I booked Terri's Retreat for a stay with my husband, parents and grandfather and we were all impressed with the place. The setting is perfect- we went for walks across to Bass Lake, we saw deer and turkeys in the morning - all very exciting for people from the city!

    The kitchen was really well equipped, the place was spacious and comfortable for 5 adults. The entire place was spotless.

    We would all recommend Terri's place and would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a wonderful time at Nature's Retreat. For starters, Terry is a wonderful host and was very accommodating. The home is nestled in the woods, very cozy/comfortable, and a quick drive (~30 mins) to the south gate of Yosemite. We will definitely return!

  • Terri and her husband Doug were amazing hosts and I loved their doggy too! they immediately made my brother and I feel comfortable on our very first Airbnb experience and were really trying everything to make their guests at "home".

    the lodge had all the amenities we could ask for and more, such as a outdoor jacuzzi and BBQ on which we prepared a great meal!

    one evening when heavy winds were expected, Doug came by to check if all was ok with us and checked around the house too, which was a great plus imo!

    to top it off, Terri freshly baked us the best lemon poppyseed and pecan scones for breakfast on our last day!

    would definately come back here, thanks again Terri and Doug, you've been great!!

    FYI: the premise is just a 10 minute drive from Oakhurst where you have all the shops and restaurants you would ask for and it's only 17 miles from the Yosemite NP entrance.

  • The place was wonderful and well-stocked. Thank you for the warm scones!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay. The house was spacious and comfortable, in a quiet area but also close to Oakhurst. We all slept well and our dog enjoyed exploring the property and the National Forest trails behind the house.

  • The cabin was great! Very clean and comfortable. The master bed was comfortable and the cabin heated up and cooled down quickly depending on the time of day and our needs. The kitchen is small and has everything you need. We cooked all our meals during our stay and it was more than enough. The kitchen is well stocked with basics. Terri and her husband were very nice throughout the entire experience. We had just asked if they had a bike tire pump so we could go for a bike ride. We went to town for groceries and came back to full tires on all the bikes with helmets ready to go! We were very much expecting to take care of it on our own. There are some great trails around the area. The hot tub was really clean and always ready to use. It was very private and we had a great time.They are very thoughtful and great hosts. They gave us tons of privacy as it was our 2 year anniversary but they were always there when needed. They are wonderful at anticipating your needs. My husband is already wanting to plan our second trip out with friends.

  • Gracious hosts, comfortable place. Being in the forest was wonderful, especially while sitting in the hot tub!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Terri's cabin. Spacious enough for 4 people and the hot tub was awesome! And Terri makes the best scones ever, so all the ingredients for a great weekend. Only 15 miles drive from Yosemite, so great location for exploring. Would come back!

  • This was a perfect weekend away from city life. My boyfriend and I were looking for a quiet retreat and that is exactly what we got here (an more!). Terri did an amazing job making us feel welcomed and comfortable. She seemed to have thought of everything!! At first I did not want cookies but after reading several reviews about how amazing they were, I had to try them. Terri was more than willing to bake them and drop them off ...and they were probably the best cookie I've had (my boyfriend had 5 right when we got them!) The hot tub was such a nice way to relax in the evening and it was shocking how quiet it is and the stars were so easy to see! I can't wait to spend another weekend here and will definitely be planning a trip back soon!
