Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nous n'avons passé qu'une seule nuit chez Kelly et Nancy mais c'était très agréable.
    Le cottage de situe au rez de chaussé de la maison, nous avons donc comme une sorte d'appartement privé avec 2 chambres, une salle de bain, un frigo et micro ondes.
    Il y avait à notre disposition de quoi manger le soir (hamburger surgelé) et pour le petit déjeuner (toast, jus de fruit...).
    La décoration est un peu spéciale mais tout est propre.
    Si vous cherchez une étape où dormir entre Yosemite et San Francisco, n'hésitez pas!

  • Comfortable space and great hospitality from Kelly and Nancy who were very accommodating to us. It was a bit farther from the park than we would have liked, but it was a great option for us that was quiet, private, and comfortable. We'd stay there again!

  • Nice and quiet place in the middle of nature. It was a pity no having time for jacuzzi! We recommend this place, quite small shower though.

  • Excellent.
    Very Happy.

  • I spent the night with my sister and my brother in law on our way back to Yosemite.
    The cottage is a little piece of art, the decoration is fantastic. The place is also very cozy and clean, the beds are comfortable.
    The location is very quiet and relaxing, one hour away from the Yosemite NP at the gates.
    There is a gazebo in garden that we enjoyed as we hung out before the night comes and in the morning while we drunk our coffee listening to the spring symphony of birds.
    Nancy is also a very friendly and genuine person.

    I will definitely come back and bring my friends or family with me for another trip there.

  • It was good staying with Kelly and Nancy. We crashed here for one night. The place was exactly as mentioned in the listing. We were lucky to see a deer right outside the house in the morning. The place was quite and stay was comfortable.

  • A charming place, in a small hamlet lost in the wood.
    Take care to have a reliable GPS when you travel there !

  • Everything was exactly as described and it`s a warm and welcoming place to stay, with everything that you need. We didn't see much of Nancy and Kelly as we were out until late but she made us feel very welcome when we first arrived.

    A lovely bonus was opening the door on one morning to see two deer grazing just outside!

    May 2014
  • The place is very homey and well decorated! It'a an hour away from Yosemite Valley, great place to stay if you want to play in Yosemite.

  • Nancy was very nice and welcoming. We stayed at Nancy and Kelly's for our climb up Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. The neighborhood is pretty: houses surrounded by forested hillsides and wildflowers. We were there in May and saw lots of lavendar blooming. Nancy offered her coffee and pop tarts which we ate on the way to Yosemite at 3am the next morning. This place would be great for a family or two couples, since it has two bedrooms. We would stay there again!
