Reviewed 17 November 2016

The 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath unit was very spacious and clean. Being in the woods was wonderful and we lucked out with great weather! The surrounding area offers many activities - we explored caverns and Big Trees State Park. Mainly we spent time just relaxing and visiting.

Very clean. Everything worked. And the staff was very very friendly. We've already talked about going back. We had dinner at Sequoia words. The food was great, the service was just OK at best. Took a long time to get our food and waitress/waiter would disappear for long periods at a time.

I cannot say enough good things about this spot. I have been doing timeshare exchanging for 20 years and this is the nicest staff I have ever encountered. Very helpful and accommodating. Some other reviews call the decor dated- honesty it is not dated it is mountain appropriate. The unit is huge and can easily accommodate 6 people. The pool...

Wonderful family resort with large units, fully equipped kitchens, and fireplace. The resort has an indoor pool, hot tub, pool table, etc. Close to Calaveras Big Trees and Bear Valley Ski Resort and golf. Grocery Store and restaurants are nearby. You will need a car to fully enjoy your stay.

First of all, we were nervous about finding the Resort as we had left the driving directions at home, but as we drove closer, we found large signs leading us right into the resort parking lot! Whew, catastrophe avoided as there is no cell phone reception in the area! We arrived on a Saturday in October to find a personable...

Our stay at the Mt.Retreat Resort was nothing short of awesome!! Our "cabin" was huge, with a cozy fireplace and 2 large bedrooms. We had 2 balconies overlooking a little brook and were surrounded by trees, many showing the colors of Fall----breathtaking beauty! !

We enjoyed our stay, the staff was friendly and helpful, our condo was nice and the kitchen well equipped. The decor is older, but comfortable, our beds were comfy. We really enjoyed our trip to Sequoa State Park, I would put it on everyone's bucket list. The golf just across the street was real nice, would also recommend it.
