"Spring break vacation."
Staff was wonderful, especially Bobbi and Ian; made it easy for us to drop off our luggage while we head to the slopes. Our cabin was cozy; kids loved the loft and the fireplace. We also loved the washer and dryer, it helped us to pack less clothes. Also we liked all it's amenities - pool, hot tub, sauna, pool table, BBQ grills. We also loved how there […] were community events like ice cream night, or breakfast Mondays. We definitely will come and stay again here. Thank you Mountain Retreat!!!

Great accommodations with a great staff. I definitely recommend Mountain Retreat and will be coming back. The units are large, comfortable and privately tucked away in the woods. Bring food and the fully furnished kitchen makes it easy to prepare meals.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice enough place"
Check in took forever. Only one parking place per unit. For almost $600 for 2 days, there could have been coffee to go with the pot, some nice toiletries, something. $300 a night is pretty steep for a furnished apartment. We will not return.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just a small problem was air conditioning. In the bedroom on the 1st floor, it was too cool and in the bedroom on the 3rd floor, it was too warm.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Mountain Retreat Resort Dear guest, Thank you for reviewing your stay. We apologize that you experience some problems with the room temperature. We encourage you to reach out to the front desk if you experience any concerns during future stays. Our staff would be more than happy to assist you. Come back soon for another visit!

This place is so relaxing. We have been coming here since 2009 and we found it accidentally then. The units are big enough to house 3 generations and yet be comforable. We will come again next summer.Genuine Expedia guest review

"difficult to find, very far from yosemite"
Place was closed. We had to navigate by directions to our unit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Mountain Retreat Resort Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We apologize that you found our locations closed for the night. we hope that despite this that you were able to enjoy the beautiful arnold area.
As a whole, it was very nice and quiet. The only negative thing I have to say is the downstairs smelled a little like mildew. The room should have been aired out. Also, there was mildew in the shower. So more attention to cleanliness is needed. Otherwise it was nice. Don't know if I will come back though due to the mildew and the musty smell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Mountain Retreat Resort Hi AudgeS, Thank you for reviewing Mountain Retreat Resort. We are really sorry that you found mildew in your room and experienced room odor. Please know that our staff will be looking into these events to prevent them from occurring in the future. We do hope to be able to welcome you back in the near future for another stay. Once again, thank you for your feedback!
"Not what I expected."
We were in Arnold because of a high school graduation. We expected more from a time share unit. The lighting in the bathrooms were not adequate. There were multiple broken blinds. The door entries did not seem very secure. We did not realize from the pictures that there were lots of stairs inside and outside.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Mountain Retreat Resort Thank you for reviewing Mountain Retreat Resort. We are really sorry that you accommodations were not what you expected.

"Overnight otw to Bear Valley Resort"
This condo included everything we needed! The kitchen was a must especially with picky kids. Plates, cups, utensils, pots, pans were also provided! :) We didn't get to check it the indoor pool, but we'll most definitely come back again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice place for families and big groups"
I liked the pool, the restaurant, the staff, the space. I wish they had a changing room at the pool (not just a bathroom) and I wish they gave us bathroom basics like shampoo, etc. It's a great place with full kitchen, individual patio, nice location in the woods, etc but remember to bring your fire wood and bathroom things.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Secluded Condo w/ perks"
This place was great and I wish we had stayed longer. We were only there for one night but I was very impressed. For the price of a normal hotel room you get two bedrooms, two pull out couches, satellite tv, 2 1/2 baths, a small kitchen with stove and full size fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer! They even left us little dish washer and laundry pods […] and dish soap. I would have loved to spend a week or more here living in the mountains. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Time Machine but close to Big Trees State Park"
Mountain Retreat Resort feels a lot like a trip to the 1980's. I swear I remember being in a cabin just like this during family ski trips in the Appalachians in the late 80's and early 90's. Don't get me wrong - this was no deterrent to our stay. The bed was comfortable, the place is awfully quiet and peaceful and there is a grocery store a few miles […] down the road where you can pick up some stuff to grill on the nearby community grill if you so choose. Although the lodging options in Arnold are slim, the MRR was a great place to rest our heads after a morning of driving and afternoon of hiking through Big Trees State Park.

"Beautiful Place to Stay"
It was a beautiful place and we would definitely come back again. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was great, the kids loved the indoor pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly, helpful staff; exterior needs attention"
All the staff were friendly and helpful. The resort offers social events, which are sweet. The beds are very comfortable, and the units have all the essentials for a pleasant stay. The interior decore is due for an update, especially the wooden towel racks, now past their prime. The only really notable issue was the condition of the exterior doors, […] several of which had weather damage. For the rates charged, they could definitely put some love back into the units - at least the one we stayed in. Given the helpfulness of the staff and the overall condition of the property, though, I would not hesitate to recommend a stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, quiet area"
The property is very well maintained, everything was clean and comfortable. there is a country club across the street with a beautiful outdoor pool, and Retreat guests can use it. I would say the clientele at this place is a bit older, there are no facilities for young children. Many of the eateries in town were closed on Tuesdays/Wednesdays when we […] were there, just a heads up- the Mountain Resort itself was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"comfy home in he woods"
BBQ available, brought up steaks, corn, potatoes for a family cook out. Staff very nice. Extra amenities like ice cream social was hosted by staff. Free DVD rentals. Remember check out is 10:00 am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Mountain Retreat Resort Dear Guest, We're thrilled you enjoyed your recent stay with us Mountain Retreat Resort. We bet your steak, corn, and potato dinner was delicious! Come back to visit us again in the future!
"A perfect place to visit..."
I would certainly go back again and anticipate the trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great although the decor was dated. We arrived and checked in only to find out that the keyless entry wasn't working and the heater in both the pool and spa was broken. My daughter was disappointed to say the least. The consolation prize was privileges to swim across the street at the country club but they closed at 6 pm each day and […] there was no hot tub spa. Next the the refrig didn't start working until the next day so we had to take our perishables to the main office overnight. On our 2nd night stay, the country club driving range that sits directly behind the resort decided it was time to clean golf balls out of an aluminum container at 7 am which woke my entire family up. The sound was obnoxious and loud almost like a freight train coming into the room. Lastly there were limited cable tv subscriptions for kid friendly shows. Silver lining is that all the resort folks staying there were friendly and helpful with local activities/sights to check out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Mountain Retreat Resort Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing Mountain Retreat Resort. We're sorry to learn of the disappointment you experienced throughout your recent visit. We understand your frustrations regarding the pool and hot tubs not working along with your refrigerator as well.

a great place to stay in the mountains (with stores and restaurants nearby); some minor maintenance needed (e.g., window blinds)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very comfortable,spacious 2bdrm /21/2 ba condo. Air conditioner needed service (the fan mode functioned(compressor sometimes),but temp. was still okay.

"Beautiful location, comfortable accommodations"
We stayed for a weekend to be near the Sno Parks, and had a wonderful time. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen included all of the necessities and the outdoor decks on both levels were a pleasant surprise. For the price and location, I would highly recommend Mountain View Resort. Previous reviews mentioned a lack of toiletries, which seems to be […] correct. The bathrooms were stocked with soap and Toms of Maine deodorant, but no shampoo, conditioner or body lotion. Not a big drawback in my opinion, but you should plan to bring your own.

"Cozy but dated"
It was a very nice 2 bed condo that fit our two families very well. Layout of condo was very nice with two floors and 2.5 bathrooms. However, walls were very thin. Water heater was very small, as you got a cold shower if someone else flushed the toilet. The condo was very dated but clean. Kids enjoyed the sledding hill on the property, within walking […] distance from our condo. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient getaway in Arnold"
The size of the 2 bdrm condo was just right, and the kids loved the hill in sight for sledding. We wished the hot tub was available, but it is closed right now. The staff was friendly and the kitchen was neat and well supplied. If the pool becomes available we'd love to come back in the summer too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, fantastic house, home from home."
Great house basically clean but could do with a deep clean, windows in need of clean inside and out. Some large cobwebs but thankfully no large spiders. Pool was closed due to a problem for a couple of days whilst we were there but on last day when it did open was good enough. As we visited out of season (October) the place had a bit of a closed down […] feel to it such as unable to get a meal or a drink at the resort. However did enjoy our time here and would recommend a stay here to friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

03/27/15 Mike L Monmouth, Oregon, United States
We have stayed here about 7 times, although this is the first time in 8 years. Every time has been great. The resort has all 2 bedroom condos with fully stocked kitchens. There are activities during the week that the kids love as well as an indoor pool, spa and sauna that are great. There are almost many things to do in the area like: the Big Trees State Park, Columbia State Park, a railroad museum, a few different caverns and many others. The staff at the resort has always been the best every time we have been here. I am very glad we were able to make it back here after such a long time away.
"Beautiful Resort in the Mountains of California"
03/26/15 Laurie G Gaston, United States
We stayed here in March. The resort is beautiful. It has a wonderful pool, spa, and game room. There are plenty activities to do close to the resort. The rooms are big and spacious for large families.
03/22/15 Ben B Wichita, Kansas
If you're looking for a getaway that allows you to totally escape the city, this is your place. Using Mountain Retreat as a base camp, we hiked 8+ miles in Big Trees, zip lined and rappelled at Moaning Cavern, spent a few days in Yosemite, and even drove back to San Francisco for a night, but in the midst of our schedule we spent almost every night in the hot tub or pool, took advantage of the Manger hosted pancake breakfast, and simply enjoyed the beauty of the resort from our back patio. The Front Desk Staff is delightful and full of rich information to allow you to experience Calaveras County and more. The resort is beautiful!
"Needle in a haystack for the Bay Area"
03/18/15 wndigirlR Dublin, California
I didn't want to review this place because I don't want anyone to know about it & book it all, it's so perfect! The staff is insanely nice, the units are big and I can't even say enough about it (you know what I mean if you live in the bay area). I have told a few people about it and they already have booked it. Short drive from Bay Area. Indoor pool/hot tub very cleanly kept. If you need barbecue tools they have them available for your grill. 2 balconies in the unit as well as kitchen is perfectly sized. Hints: Bring your own tinfoil, ice, etc. as only basic utencils are stocked in the kitchen. Drawbacks: Check out time is too early We cant wait to return & already have it scheduled!
03/04/15 EverettRussell Stockton, California
We stayed here for the first time this year on our ski trip we only stayed one night but was totally impressed with the whole resort. We are already planning another trip to the resort for a four day weekend. You get so much for the price Wich is very reasonable. Can't say enough good things about this resort.
"Mountain Retreat a treat"
02/28/15 Sheryl L
Always look forward to staying at this resort. The resort is located next to the Sequoia Woods County Club and nestled in by evergreen trees. The units are comfortable and spacious for family and friends to stay or visit with us (sleeps up to 8). Has amenities we appreciate such as a washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen, plenty of towels and linens and free Wi-Fi. The units are very clean and maintained however the furnishings and decor could be updated. The beds are comfortable to sleep in. Weather permitting you can enjoy sitting at a table on your private balcony to enjoy the smell of the fresh air while listening to the chirping of birds. There are barbecue grills centrally located outside the units for cooking up a meal. The resort lobby and recreation area are such a nice treat for guests. There is an indoor swimming pool and hot tub, sauna, gym, pool table, theatre room, computers/business office equipment, etc. and a kitchen area host to a free pancake breakfast and ice cream social for guests once a week. The staff are friendly and tend to your needs very quickly. Arnold is a quaint little area with a few good restaurants and some shopping. Have enjoyed Sequoia Woods Country Club restaurant for dinner, visiting the nearby Calaveras Big Trees State Park, wine tasting in Murphy's and Bear Valley Ski Resort.
"Second Year in a Row!!!"
02/19/15 Derrick H San Diego, California
We visited Mountain Retreat Resort (MRR) in February this year for our annual ski trip with our friends. Not much has changed since last year (yes, the decor is still dated) and again the service was great! Bonni really helped to accommodate our group and get us units right across from each other. We were in the Comstock unit this year. Both bedrooms are on the same level (the bottom), however, the living room space is smaller than the unit we had last year. Wifi worked great, however, using the telephone in the unit for a call was difficult as the volume was extremely low. The only negative to our trip was the toilet breaking in our friends unit. Overall, it was another fantastic trip and we look forward to staying at MRR again.
02/06/15 Carl E Granite Bay, California
My wife and I come here every year for a Great Vacation. The area has many outstanding places to visit. The units are very comfortable, and are being updated. I recomend this resort to either families or couples.
"An awesome experience"
01/22/15 Jonathan L Carson, California
The hospitality was absolutely outstanding. The facilities are great. Very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. My stay felt like a home away from home. I plan to recommend the Mountain Retreat to all my friends and family.
"Amazing place to stay"
01/22/15 Jordan H Oakdale, California
My fiancé and I stayed here. I rented a condo. We were placed in the farthest building, which was unit 13 (best spot, request it!!!!!!). It was perfect, it had a stream going by and we were secluded. The resort is phenomenal. We loved it! The "condo" units are actually 2 story buildings with 2 bedrooms. On the second story, there is one master bedroom with a large bed and a master bathroom, and a second bedroom that had access to a full bathroom right next to it. The 1st story has a full kitchen and 2 full size couches that are pull outs. There is a half bath right next to the couches. The resort provides essentials like shampoos and even one load of laundry soap. There is cable TV in the master and the main living room. You won't find a place like this for the price. The only negative comment I can think of, the resort charges you $10 each night you stay there, and only makes you aware of this charge when you check in....even with that charge, the resort is amazingly cheap. Bobi was the concierge for us. She was super welcoming, accommodating, and just amazing. She was very vested in our stay and wants to help us figure out a fun time for our bachelor and bachelorette parties...very above and beyond most places! In short, we loved it. We will be back! My fiancé and I enjoyed the pool and spa (you will have to take a short drive or walk to the main building).
