We stayed at the Sierra Lodge over July 4 weekend and had a wonderful time. Brenda responded to all our queries right away and gave some great advice so we could make the most of our time in Yosemite. She was also very understanding about our late check-in and gave precise directions about how to find the place at night and self check-in. We had a good time chatting with John over breakfast and he recommended some great hikes in the area that we will be sure to check out in our next trip. They also kept folders with food recommendations and local maps in our room which was very helpful. The free WiFi is really fast and helpful since service is pretty bad in this area. Thanks for a great time, John & Brenda! :)
Things to keep in mind:
It takes about 1.5 hours to get to Yosemite Village from here. We didn't mind the drive as you get gorgeous views along the drive and are far away from the crowds. Might not be the best location for you if you wish to spend most of your time around the village and don't want to drive on curvy roads at night.
Ahwanee is a really small town but Oakhurst is 15-20 minutes away and has a number of options for food and groceries.
Response from Brenda:
In case we have the pleasure of hosting you again, the shampoo & conditioner are in the cabinet below the bathroom sink ;) Thank you for staying with us!
Best regards, John & Brenda
We had a wonderful stay with John and Brenda at the Sierra Mountain Lodge. The room was lovely and comfortable and the breakfasts yummy, but best of all were our hosts who made us welcome in their home. Very helpful and friendly and gracious. We enjoyed meeting them and their family and felt right at home. We definitely recommend this stay to anyone planning a visit to Yosemite. Thanks Brenda, John and Amelia.
This stay was amazing! Brenda and her family are the best! We are a family of four and stayed at the sunrise suite. Everything was super clean and nice. Breakfast was great. Beautiful place to stay! Totally recommend it! Loved it! Thanks Brenda!!!
This is my second stay with the Sierra Mountain Lodge and Brenda and John. They are awesome hosts, offering great conversation, insight and history on the area - and they run a very clean, quiet and beautiful BnB. I highly recommend them!!
Brenda and her husband, as well as her daughter (I guess...) are very nice hosts. We stayed in Rose Suite, which is well-decorated, clean and comfortable, enough space for our group of three. It's about 40 min drive from the house to park entrance, about 20 min to the town wher Relay's locates. The only thing we felt pity was that cooking is not permitted in the house, although BBQ facilities are prepared outdoors.
Our time at Yosemite was made better because we had such an amazing place to stay at. We absolutely loved the cabin and John and Brenda were amazing hosts! Would return here every single time I visit the area and will absolutely recommend it to family, friends and even strangers!
The place was great. The nature around it absoutely gorgeous. Brenda was a perfect host giving good advice about things to do around.The room was spacious quiet andcomfortable. The decoration in the little garden around the lodge is realy cute and gives the place a serene atmosphere. It is quite close (60 to 90 minutes) to Yosemite park by car for great hikes.
Perfect Hosts perfect wonderful House! We d like to come to back everytime
Brenda and John are perfect hosts and were ready with suggestions for our trip to Yosemite! The room was very clean, the property was adorable and the mountain views were spectacular! Brenda and John were on hand each morning cooking up a delicious breakfast! Would recommend to anyone and hope to return someday!
