Traded in our timeshare so not knowing exactly what to expect. I had looked at many reviews so I was not worried. Nice drive into the woods. Very quiet. We stayed in Unit 23 and what a awesome find! Upstairs, walk-in level large living room with wood burning fireplace, dining area, full kitchen, washer and dryer, and small bathroom, no...

My husband and I were traveling with a friend to see the AMAZING Sequoia trees by Calaveras State Park. The area is woodsy and campy like. Therefore, this hotel is a good choice. By my usual standard, it isn't what I'm used to. Everything looks very dated in the cottage. The swimming pool is tiny & the jacuzzi did not...

We stayed just one night on a California road trip after white water rafting at Coloma. MRR was fab, a perfectly peaceful location after the hussle and bussel of San Fran. The lodge was a really good size. Great value. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food at the country club. Would love to go back again!

We had booked this resort for 2 nights as a place to stay while visiting Yosemite, and we left wishing we had booked our whole week here. Loved the townhouse style set up of the units - having a living area upstairs was awesome and kids loved having a little separation from the parents and vice versa. Yes, the decor...

Great sized condo but like walking into a time warp. Very basic amenities for the money charged. Don't think it's been updated since it was built 30+ years ago. Flowered wall paper, old plumbing & furnishings. Beds were comfy and they had added flat screen TVs and WiFi and fresh bedding but that's about it. Great location, especially if you...

Friendly staff but very dated units. Especially ones in the back. No views from the decks. Somewhat functional but very dated. Lots of small things wrong. Example, no remote for DVR. No 25lb dumbells in gym. Decks very dirty with little to no chairs. Washer dryer very small, sidewalks very uneven, units dark and gloomy. Lots of small things.

We went to visit our daughter who is working at the Wolfeboro Scout Camp about a half hour away. Great location (a little hard to find if you have not saved/printed direction) since mobile service is poor. Clean, spacious, and excellent amenities. Beds comfortable, kitchen, TV'S, and WiFi. Friendly staff with passes to outdoor activities. Would book again without hesitation.
