Thank you for the snow removal service. One of the nights, it snowed 12 inches and we were concerned we’d be snowed in. Problem solved when the back-hoe snow blower drove up! Other note, the driveway is ridiculously steep. If anyone else was using it during the winter storm timeframe there would have been an accident.

The property has a great location and the interior was very clean and well ordered. Its the second time we have visited in six years, it was as pleasant as we had hoped for.

Excellent accommodations for 2 at a great location. We enjoyed the amount of space for the kitchen and living area and the high view out the picture window. Perfect location for us to go to the Mariposa Grove, Glacier Point, and the valley.

Good stay. It would be helpful to have instructions on how to use the DVD player and TV. It would be helpful to have kleenex.

This cozy house was fantastic and perfect for our stay! The kitchen was well stocked and had almost everything we needed. We improvised and made what they provided work! Having the AC in the window of the living room was a nice surprise! AT&T phone service did not work at all - but the wifi was enough to keep in touch with family at home. We will definitely stay here again!

The unit is very clean and location is convenient. The WiFi was good (with text and sending photos, which is enough for us, not good enough for video streaming). There was no shampoo and conditioner in bathroom which is a surprise for me.

Nice location and unit. Im fortunate there was cell coverage and glad the phone number to call was answered as the initial code to enter the unit did not work. Other than that, everything went well.

Chinquapin Retreat was awesome. Couldnt ask for a better place to stay. The place was super clean and had everything needed for my 3 day stay. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful! I rate this place a 10 plus and would defiantly stay here again if in the area. Nice 20 minute drive to Yosemite Valley. Thank you Chinquapin Retreat for making my stay comfortable!

Wonderful sunset view. Nice to be able to stay in the park. Plenty of room for the two of us. Hard pillows, bed not comfortable. Wished the condo had laundry facilities on site. Thanks.

The condo was great, perfect location. Kitchen well stocked, we cooked most of our meals. We had issue with bathroom door and you were quick to fix it. My only wish was you had Kleenex for the unit and a bit more info on TV. Otherwise great place!

Our stay was great! Only things that could be improved are the comfort of the beds, especially the pull out couch, which would benefit from extra blankets/pillows to use!

Our stay was great. The place was very clean, quiet, private and the huge window with all the natural light was amazing. We would definitely stay in Yosemite West again at one of these properties!

When we arrived at our cabin, the steep driveway was snow covered and very slippery. After I called the office, Sam arrived within minutes, and he was great. He quickly plowed out our driveway, then installed the chains on our rental SUV. He was professional, personable and provided us with some very useful information. The only disappointing aspect to our stay was that we couldn't stay longer, but we will be back!

I really enjoyed the loft! It was very cozy and clean and had everything I needed for a quiet get away to explore the Glacier Point area of Yosemite. My only complaint is that the heater was very noisy. Unless I turned it off at night it woke me up at early morning because the place got cold. It sounded like a constant banging and it was loud. As winter approaches guest may want the heater on through the night but this will become an annoyance.

Very nice apartment and an excellent location. The biggest problem in the apartment was there were no blinds and curtains on the windows ... This was strange and offered no privacy. We would recommend that either blinds or curtains are installed on atleast the living room windows

All worked fine. The place was clean and in good repair. The code number on the door lock was an alternate phone number last 4 digits from what I was told would be used, but we figured it out (eventually). It would be nice to add curtains/blinds/shutters to block out early morning sunlight in the main room. Our daughter was awoken early by sunlight streaming in. Overall, we enjoyed a pleasant stay.

The air conditioning was a very important feature. We are glad it was there!

The accommodations were more than adequate and very comfortable given we were in the middle of Yosemite. The support staff responded to all our requests and needs quickly. We expected the WiFi and TV service to be better. A luggage rack, arm chair in living room would also be helpful. The location was ideal!!
