We recently stayed in Little Bear cottage owned by Neal and Carole and it suited our needs ideally. You are quite a way from civilisation so you have to take food and supplies with you but it is a lot lot closer than some places advertising as being in Yosemite. It is a 40 minute drive to the valley floor...

It's been a long time since our stay so I'm a little fuzzy on details...but I remember the owners being really friendly and the location being excellent. Lodging in Yosemite is always kind of a crap shoot. Oakhurst is just too far away IMO. Oakhurst hotels will say they're only 20 minutes from the park...what they don't say is that's...

We (two couples - sisters and BiLs) stayed at Cozy Bear South over Labor Day weekend, and it was a very good choice. The location is excellent. Although nothing is really close or easy to get to in Yosemite, this cottage was a relatively easy drive to both Glacier Point, where we went for a ranger talk and spectacular sunset,...

We booked our accommodations late to Yosemite and were fortunate enough to get this vacation rental. The location alone is worth staying there. You are minutes from the road to Glacier Point and a reasonable drive North to the Valley and South to Mariposa Grove. We stayed here 3 nights. The rental is part of a duplex. There is a...

Neil and Carol were unbelievably gracious and generous during our stay and helped us avoid near disaster. First, Neil was helping us bring our bags in when he saw my handicapped mother struggling up the stairs. He consulted privately with Carol and came back a few minutes later with an offer for us to stay in a unit below theirs...

We loved our stay here. Loved it. We stayed in the Lil Bear cottage and the location is wonderful. It was so quiet at night and it was far from the commotion in the Valley. The cottage itself was outfitted for us to cook dinner both nights and find everything we needed. It was clean, which pleased me because rentals...

Me and my wife spent three nights at Cozy Bear in mid-June 2013. We had a wonderful stay. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. Everything was very clean. There was also a nice living room at the bottom floor with a TV and a DVD player, but we never used it. Apart form eating and sleeping, we...

We stayed at Cozy Bear South for 5 days in July. The accommodations were perfect for our family of four. We enjoyed returning each night and making home cooked meals in their fully stocked kitchen. We even used there barbecue grill a couple of times. Neal and Carol are terrific hosts and I would recommend staying at this cabin for...

“Duplex on the owners property.”

“From what we understand, Cozy Bear South and Cozy Bear North are identical inside. It's possible that, being less shady, the North unit's patio would have fewer mosquitoes in the evening. I think the South unit is slightly more private, however, since there are no close neighbors on that side.”
