"Great Hide Away"
Very nice pool/water feature and hot tub. Hot tub was the perfect temp. The pool and hot tub are polar opposites which is very nice. The landscaping and cabins are beautiful and kept clean. A little dust in the club house. Close to town yet feels like your far away from it. No noise with the exception of the wildlife. Could use some improvement with […] the internet connection, but that could be partly due to the location being so close to the mountains. They could stand to insist that their guest control their children a little better as the children were a little irritating and rambunctious. The club house should be OFF LIMITS to unattended children. Employees should make rounds to the club house when children are visiting as they do not behave well and many times their parents aren't paying very good attention to them sadly. Over-all it was a very pleasant experience and I would recommend it highly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was small but it was a decent place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was very dirty! The floor was sticky, the toilet overflowed, and we didn't even have a room key on arrival! We asked to be compensated in some way, but were completely ignored. Not to mention...there was no employees anywhere on site for help, so had to go through their answering service! Will NEVER stay there again!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice resort, very quaint."
Our experience was very pleasant. Our accommodations were very close to where our event was held. The grounds were very well maintained and cozy. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The kitchenette was clean and everything was in good working order.Genuine Expedia guest review

Excellent hospitality,very clean,beautiful place to stay.Service excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay!"
Everything was perfect, the cabin, pool, location, and service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved this place from the moment we found it. Check in time is at 5:00PM so we called to let them know we would be arriving later. The person on the phone said no problem, we will have your key in your cabin and your room number will be on the office door. We arrived at out cabin and it was love at first sight. We were near the clubhouse and waterfall […] pool and the sounds sent waves of hapiness through my body. I love water features and the rock pool was unbelivable. The room had everything we needed and bed was so comfortable. We cannot wait to go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very cozy and comfortable.. but impossible to find"
Once we got there we enjoyed our stay and appreciated the attention to detail... but we arrived late at night only to find a note and map explaining where our cottage was. The map made no sense and finding the place in total darkness was impossible. We were able finally connect with mgr/owner to helped us navigate in the dark. Better signage and a more […] realistic map would be greatly appreciated! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Heden of Peace"
I spent two nights at Lazy Z Resort during my trip in the Sierra and it was a great stay. Located within the mountain in the small town of Twain Harte, this place is magical. Here you can relax and enjoy a fresh evening in the quitness of the mountain or you can go to the club house where you can meet the owner and listen to someone playing the guitar […] under the moon. Totally recommended if you are looking for o romatic place with your partner ;) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a great hideaway!"
We stayed here for just one night of our two week adventure through California but we will remember it long after the other places fade out of memory. We had room 1A, closest to the pool and clubhouse. It was quiet, relaxing and the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The hot tub, pool and grounds are beautiful and the room quaint but comfortable. […] There are lots of very good choices for dinner in town just a couple of miles away. We wish we could have stayed longer and we will return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"more like camping,"
Just like camping, only the tent was missing. Bring BBQ and groceries, there is nothing convent near by. Very quiet, just not my style. Good if your between 6 and 26. The pool is very nice but too far away. I had cabin 12. Nice shower and good air conditioning. Room size about 200 sq. ft. Can't say about the service, there is no service. So no bad service. […] It's camping in the woods, the trees were great. I don't recommend trying to find this place in the dark. It was very clean. Zero wild life, no birds, zip. Great hide -a-way. Lots of privacy. Quiet. Bottom line bad location. Won't be going back too pricey. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I love it there. The pool is gorgeous . The kids never want to leave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Once again, we stayed at the Lazy Z, and loved the "being there" so much...The setting is amazing and one really feels the sense of being in the mountains and enjoying the FRESH,FRAGRANT air. the evenings are delicious, and the unexpected heat wave was not a problem for us...Our room(evergreen) was a bit faded, but the pool is fabulous. There was a […] huge family with multiple children who really "took over" but we still had a marvelous time there, especially when they departed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice cabin in the mountains"
My parents and I wanted to stay in the Sierras and close to Yosemite. Though Yosemite Valley was 2 hours away, we still decided to stay at this hotel. We were very pleased with the Lazy Z Resort. We called ahead and told them we were arriving late. They put a map by the office and left our cabin open for us. There were towels, bathroom amenities, a […] grill, a full kitchen and living, etc. It was a perfect little home away from home. On our 2nd day, we traveled to Yosemite and back. Definitely doable but it does take awhile. We were so pleased with the Lazy Z that we didn't mind the travel time. Twaine Harte was also an incredibly cute town. We got breakfast (bagels, sandwiches, and amazing breakfast drinks) at a little cafe right in town and then that night went back to The Rock for dinner. And downtown Twaine Harte was only 1.5 miles away from the Lazy Z. Check out was at 11am and only had to be out of the cabin by 11am but could stay on the properties till 1pm. The pool was very impressive. Rocks, waterfalls, and built in hot tubs made it an amazing retreat after a hard day of hiking around Yosemite. Overall I was very impressed with the Lazy Z.

"Nice but far"
Great hotel and cozy. but it is soooo far from yosemete. If you are planning to go to yosemete, dont stay at this hotel, other wise it is great. It is missleading when you do the search in expediaGenuine Expedia guest review
"OMG, the pool rocked!"
It was fun, easy, & pleasant, all as it should be, but the POOL! wow! It was like a huge water feature with boulders and shallow & deep areas & hot, warm & cold pools & waterfalls. the kids & I were in heaven!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved it overall"
I was not expecting this to be so beautiful . Pictures were misleading . We reached late evening and it was such a calm feeling when we got there . You feel that you are right there in the wilderness . Their pool and hot tub is so nice , so romantic . I loved my room .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great pool . . . umm, water feature?!?"
They've designed a beautiful pool with rocks and waterfalls which fits in beautifully with the surrounding landscape. Unfortunately, it doesn't comply with local regulations, so they have to call it a "water feature." This doesn't detract from how much our kids had swimming in it. Meanwhile, the Lazy Z offers a great location, affordable prices, and […] a friendly and helpful staff. Honestly, I'd love to be able to return for a longer stay the next time.

Great escape. Water pressure was big disappointment but the serene setting and friendly people made up for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It seems like a haunted resort"
I would never want to go back there ever again; In our entire stay we did not see a single resort employee. They would keep the room open with keys inside and ask you to give them a call once you arrived or left.Genuine Expedia guest review
What a nice place to sit back and relax. We were able to meet a few of the family/owners and they did everything possible to make us feel welcome. The cabins and cottages were very clean. There was plenty of activities around the clubhouse area to entertain us and the waer feature was one of the coolest pools we've ever enjoyed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Amazing experience - pristine resort with wonderful owners who made us feel right at home. Beautiful landscaping and scenery with a modern lodge that features many ways to entertain.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Casual Booking - Nice Staff"
The hotel is very comfortable, offering comfy cabins or big family options. The staff is VERY nice and will work to go above and beyond expectations should you have any problems. They are dedicated to make your holiday amazing. A word of caution, problems are a possibility due to the trusting, casual checkin process. But we left the resort SAT-IS-F […] IED.

Overall pretty nice location. Clubhouse and pool were both pretty nice. One of the toilets were broken. We stayed in Juniper (#5) and it was pretty big but everything could be updated a bit more to make it nicer. We would stay here again but now that we know a bit more about the facilities and room provisions we would bring a few things with us like: - […] an axe to chop the provided wood - a lighter to start the fire - BBQ to take advantage of the awesome deck - More friends and family :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Quick Layover before Dodge"
I got a small cozy cottage (no. 13) which is a very good size for a couple! My "3" rating for convenience of hotel location is based on my follow up destination - Dodge Ridge which is 45 minutes away from the resort. There wasn't anything available closer which to Dodge which I would very much prefer - and for this purpose I would have chosen the option […] of "Not Applicable" instead of "3" if available since it's should not be a criteria in my review. If you want a resort which is quiet and still accessible to amenities - this should be a higher rating, with Mark Twain downtown just about 5 minutes drive away.

"A Pleasant Quirky Getaway"
The Lazy Z was a great surprise! We had some trouble finding it, as the iPhone map has it in a slightly different location than it actually is and we arrived after dark. We called when we were about ready to give up, and the girl at the front desk was very helpful in getting us where we needed to go. The little cabin we had was cozy and clean with all […] of the amenities you would expect from a hotel room (coffee pot, toiletries, etc). The window heater was pretty loud, and the thermostat in it didn't seem to be working, so we had to run it for a few hours while we were awake and then turn it off to sleep, but it worked out okay. We went down to the lodge, and hung out by the fireplace for a bit and had a few drinks with others who were staying there. It is big and has tons of room to have an event/family reunion -- it's pretty quirky with the massive Elk head and all of the miscellaneous collectable items that are scattered about. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely recommend it to friends who are going to the area. Unfortunately it is about a three hour drive from the valley in Yosemite, so it would really only work for the way in or back out for San Franciscans. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lazy Bones Loved the Lazy Z!"
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving stay at the Lazy Z so much that we're taking our family there for New Years. Our cabin was cozy and quiet and the grounds of the resort were very beautiful with a herd of deer, lovely water sculpture, and woodsy trails for hiking. Access to restaurants and shops in Twain Harte, along with proximity of the resort to Dodge […] Ridge and Yosemite, provided a great balance of serenity and stimulation for the holiday.

Peace and solitude is what we found as we arrived to celebrate our anniversary. Exactly what we were looking for! We experienced the first snow of the season, and enjoyed visits from the deer that live on the property. We are looking forward to many more stays at Lazy Z, both in the winter and the summer. We can't wait to share our find with the fa […] mily. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very small. For this price, I expected bigger, nicer room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived just before sunset. I would hate to drive at night around that area with all the roads near by that are steep and w/o guardrails. Once we arrived our reservation was on a sign on the outside of the building, so we continued to our cabin. This little cabin was perfect. We had a queen bed, tv and shower. We took a walk around the property at […] night and it was so peaceful. The pool was nice but we did not use it. We left very early in the morning and we had a wonderful night sleep.

Great place to stay. We had the Cabin # 5, which was actually a 2 story, 2 bedroom house. An older house with a rock fireplace, large deck, and a great view of the woods.

"Be prepared to search for this place, in the WOODS"
I think this place would be great for a romantic getaway, if your lady doesnt freak out about the brown water from the tap. The WiFi was down during my stay, but thankfully I was close enough to the reception office to get a signal. The Hot tub/water feature area was great, they can't call it a pool, but you'll enjoy it just the same. All in all I would […] go back if I wanted someplace to really be alone with my lady.

"Nice grounds, but no staff."
Nice small resort with several cottages surrounding a main house and pool area. Strangely, we never saw anyone that worked there. We arrived at the office and there was a note on the door saying the office was closed but our name and cottage number was posted on the door. This might be attributed to us arriving on a Wednesday, but we never saw anyone […] even as we left Thursday. Clean rooms, nice grounds, saw several deer outside our cottage.

The Lazy Z Resort was fantastic! I stayed there with friends only as a place to crash for the night, but I really wish we could've stayed a few nights more. Great remote location in the woods to relax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Gorgeous place! Beautiful grounds, comfortable, clean cabins with all amenities. Location is remote but easy and quick to get to town where we had a very nice dinner. We will most definitely come back to Lazy Z!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very cozy and peacefull place..Clean and quite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just a good place to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Wasn't expecting this kind of camp atmosphere. Cabin was really tiny, but bigger than a tent and could fit 4 bc of bunks. Yet, it was charming, clean, comfy for the night. Kind of out of the way from Yosemite. Still, it brought us to an area we would never have traveled to otherwise. We like adventures; this one was not bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is really a hide away. no neighbors in sight. just a great cabin with a fireplace, warm living room, huge deck, really a great place to just get away. I hope to return sometime soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Time at Lazy Z"
We had a great time at Lazy Z! The description of the cottage was unclear and we thought we would have a full kitchen. Turns out it was only a microwave & fridge. The owner moved us to better accommodations with a full kitchen, no questions asked. The grounds were beautiful (we especially enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi, staff was friendly and helpful, […] we couldn't have asked for more. We are looking forward to spending another vacation at Lazy Z Resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Badly designed bathrooms and game room"
The surroundings were beautiful. Lovely trees and gazillions of stars.The water feature was lovely, too. No staff, despite being Saturday night. The shower was so short that I, who am 5'3" banged my head on it. My 6'2" husband literally had to get on his knees to rinse his hair.This was just bad design. The cabin is very tall, but they decided to put […] the water heater above the shower, thus making it suitable only for children or elves.. There were lots of other places it could go -outside, even. If a basic feature like this isn't tall enough for adults, they should warn you! There was a game room with a pool table, but it was arranged so that the tv, model saloon, glass case, etc,were so close that many shots were impossible to make. This in a big 2 story building with lots of space.. This place was just too dysfunctional to be called a resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfy Cozy at the Lazy Z"
We will return to the Lazy Z, very comfortable, we stayed in the double bed and bunkbed cabin. This is a great place for families or a romantic get away weekend. From Twain Harte It's a 6 min drive to Sonora/Columbia and a 20 min drive to beautiful Pinecrest Lake. We had a great time picking blackberries that are in season and visiting Angels Camp.

"Lazy Z Twain Harte"
Resort is hard to find and remote, but is nice and quiet and relaxing. Pool is nice, but if in cabins below, have to drive up hill and up property to get to it. Bring charcoal to cook or plan on eating out. enjoyed the stay, but it is remote and rustic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The little cottages that we stayed in for our honeymoon were great. They are clean, quiet and secluded. My only problem was the location. If you are going to stay at this hotel get the maps from the hotel. Do not try to find the place at night with a GPS. Your GPS will be useless in this area. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will return […] if we go back to Yosemite. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"lazy with a capital C"
It was a nightmare. Location was most difficult to find. Upon arrival, there was no reception, absolutely nothing. I have to search for the booked cabin and to ring a number to inform check in time. How could the establishment be called a "resort" of any kind when the swimming pool is not even up to code. Am I expected to swim at my own risks? Also […] no eating facilities within the resort. The cabin is too small. Not recommended for overseas travellers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
