“My family and I loved everything about the cottage. Perfect space for 6 people. Upon arrival cabin was sparkling clean and smelled amazing. They put out popcorn and granola bars for us, which we thought was a nice touch. Very quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. No complaints at all. It was definitely a cozy cottage! We will be staying here again!”

“Nancy and Casey have thoughtfully created a lovely place high in the trees. They welcomed us on arrival, showed us round, explained a few things, told us to call if we needed anything and then left us to enjoy our stay. Everything has been designed to make you feel home from home with comfort and cleanliness a priority. The bed, linens and choice of pillows are super-comfortable, the towels are the fluffiest, the kitchen equipment has everything you need to cook full meals, the tv has a voice-control option and extra channels and the tree-top views are amazing especially at sunset. It was close to Jamestown ........ like stepping back in time! The Yosemite N.P. entrance was an hour and twenty minutes away ......... through lovely countryside ........ and a good supermarket about 10 minutes away. Nancy gives clear instructions how to get up to their hill-top home ........ follow carefully, preferably in the daylight first time! Thank you, Nancy and Casey for sharing part of your home with us.”
This quaint mountain home has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths (~1250 sqft). Bedrooms have tempur-pedic mattresses with down comforters. The kitchen is stocked with all necessary appliances and utensils. Long drive way, good enough to park a boat/snowmobile. Big grassy backyard for family gatherings. Right across the street from the Long Barn Ice Skating Rink.
“Great home that worked very well for us. Removed from the main road yet not down a hill which was important in the snowstorm that we planned to enjoy. Roads were plowed twice a day so with chains would be no problem. Clean and warm home. Emphasis on home as it’s complete with couches, newish carpet, full kitchen, and good and new beds. Central bearing kept upstairs plenty warm but downstairs required space heaters - two provided were plenty adequate. A fire was missed - but not expected nor promised. We booked it only one day before arrival and two days before Thanksgiving so have no idea what other options are on the area, as everything else was booked. Cafe and pizza place within a few miles, but we planned to just enjoy the local streets in the snow, which was perfect. In fresh snow the area is just magical, with alpine style homes. Across the street there’s a small lodge that has an ice rink (indoors sadly enough, but probably desirable for some people). Please note that while a small quaint area (at least in fresh snow), I wouldn’t consider the home was to be classic like others are in the area - not that rugged, wooden interior of the classic alpen style. There’s also a view of a street light that’s bright out the front. This is sure to not detract from the place for some. Also, do note that, while there is a dish network setup, there are zero normal channels. Only a few and absolutely no network or desirable channels. So don’t expect to be able to watch much? Handful of DVDs are there. Overall all the warmth and amenities and cleanliness you’d want with access to both towns and ski resort make this a good option.”
