Guest Reviews

Wonderful house and beautiful location. by Diane Scudamore 10/28/2018
“Wonderful house and beautiful location. Plenty of space and the Pool table and Hot tub were a great bonus! It was our first time visiting Yosemite in the fall and the colors were gorgeous. Thanks Holly for sharing your home.”
This place was amazing. by Tanner Winterbottom 09/24/2017
“This place was amazing. The amenities were great, the hot tub was a nice touch after a day of hiking. The pool table always kept us entertained inside and the industrial kitchen was awesome for our group of 7. Location is perfect, just 15 minutes from the valley destinations. Would highly recommend. Holly was also a great host and quick to communicate back and forth.”
Originally it was just myself and my boyfriend staying at Holly's; however, two friends from Fresno also wanted to join and Holly was happy to oblige! by Darcey Jackson 08/04/2017
“Originally it was just myself and my boyfriend staying at Holly's; however, two friends from Fresno also wanted to join and Holly was happy to oblige! The check in process was as smooth as it can be, Holly sent over some really really useful information on how to get in and recommendations about buying food and petrol before we arrived! The place was spotless, the kitchen and living area were beautiful and the location was perfect. Only 20/30 minutes or so to the main trails in Yosemite, but extremely quiet with good views too! We had an issue working the hot tub (although this could have just been us being a bit clueless), and Holly replied instantly and got the maintenance man to attend the same day. We loved loved loved staying here and when we return to Yosemite we will be coming straight back to Holly's. ”
We had a wonderful cozy stay at the enchanted forest! by Sami Skinner 07/15/2015
“We had a wonderful cozy stay at the enchanted forest! We woke up everyday to make our breakfast and coffee before our long hikes in Yosemite and the amenities were perfect. We got such wonderful sleep because the bed was extremely comfortable. We didn't eat out once and came home every night, made dinner and watched the history channel. It made for the perfect vacation for us, if I'm ever back in Yosemite this is where I will stay!”

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Upper Enchanted Forest in Yosemite on Friday and Saturday. by Glenda Lanier 09/28/2014
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Upper Enchanted Forest in Yosemite on Friday and Saturday. We loved the spacious rooms and lovely furniture.

We were a little worried when we saw the weather forecast but as it turned out, it was quite nice on Friday. We had a lovely dinner at the Ahwahnee and enjoyed relaxing back at the house. It felt more like being at home than at a rental.

On Saturday we had a great breakfast and then set out to meet the rest of the family at the Lodge for our hike. The weather was perfect and it was so nice to be together in a place our parents loved so much. It sprinkled ever so lightly as we were hiking out.

We went back to the house and relaxed a little before the rest of the family arrived for dinner. How nice it was that all 14 of us could fit at the large dining table. Everyone remarked on what a great house it was. The sunset was spectacular and it did start raining pretty hard but we loved it.

It couldn't have been a more perfect weekend that we will never forget.

We hope to be back again soon.

Thank you,

Glenda Lanier
Family Winter Getaway by Barbara Ahern 02/21/2014
Family Winter Getaway

We had a wonderful three days at this fantastic home. The home is beautifully furnished and very cozy, well organized and equipped with all the cooking tools we needed and we cooked every meal in or I should say my children cooked. My son wanted to bring the entire kitchen home. With television in the living room and in two of the three bedrooms, pool table and hot tub there was always something to do. Cozy chairs to curl up in to read a good book. We would love to return next year if we can, just depends on everybody schedules. All of the sites that we wanted to see in Yosemite were very easy to get to. The owner is very pleasant and helpful to work with. Very gracious.
Dear Holly, by Cathleen Sullivan 08/30/2013
Dear Holly,

We wish to thank you for the lovely time we had in the Enchanted Forest! We enjoyed many activities and came home to a nice hot tub and a home cooked meal. The accommodations suited us all perfectly and we couldn't be any happier!

Should we get back to this neck of the woods again, we'll be sure to stay with you again!

Our thanks!

Cathleen Sullivan & Family
Perfect Stay! by Debra Nguyen 03/25/2013
"Perfect Stay!"
Beautiful, clean, cozy location, easy to work with owner, had everything we could think of already provided.
This is the way to do Yosemite and the place to stay! by David Jones 02/09/2013
This is the way to do Yosemite and the place to stay!

Do the math: what would it cost you to rent 3 little hotel rooms for 3 couples for a night? Now compare that with what it costs to rent this entire house (3 bedrooms, each with private bath and a little kitchenette; a double kitchen; a large dining/entertainment area complete with a pool table and satellite TV; an indoor 8 person hot-tub; plus a washer and dryer) for a night.

Now figure out how much time you'll spend each day driving back and forth if you stay outside the park. If you haven't done that before, it's a considerable amount of time, especially in the summer when the park is crowded and traffic backs up. Compare that with staying in Yosemite West, which is just a few minutes away from one of the main roads that cuts through the park.

Add to it that from start to finish you deal personally with Holly, the owner, who genuinely wants you and your group to have a comfortable, trouble-free time and encourages you to contact her with any questions or problems. Plus you're not in a crowded commercial area with traffic zipping by. You're pretty much in a residential community in the kind of setting you go to Yosemite to see in the first place.

The only things I marked down a point below are the kitchen because the indoor grill on the gas stove wouldn't light the night we wanted to grill some nice pork chops we'd bought, and the indoor hot tub, which seemed not to have been used or serviced recently. In fairness I should say we could have been mistaken about that, and if I'd called her, which I didn't, I'm confident Holly would have addressed it.

I'll sum it up this way. The previous time we went to Yosemite we stayed at the Ahwahnee. If we were turning around and going back next week with more than two of us, we'd head straight to the Enchanted Forest (Upper)
Wonderful Stay in Yosemite by Holly Dudley 10/18/2012
"Wonderful Stay in Yosemite"
We enjoyed our stay in the upper floor of the "Enchanted Forest" very much. While not in the valley floor, the location was very convenient, not too far from the main sightseeing attractions in the park. The place was clean, quiet and very well equipped.

We hope that we can return in the spring while the waterfalls are active!
Met and exceeded all expectations by Larry Urbach 09/01/2012
"Met and exceeded all expectations"
We were three friends sharing upper enchanted forest. The unit could have accommodated many more. The kitchen was stocked better than my home. Location was good. Owner is very hands on. We didn't require local assistance, but that was also available. Would stay there again if visiting the area. Very clean and well appointed. Quiet area convenient to all Yosemite attractions.
My family stayed here at Enchanted Forest in July, 2012. by Steve Stelzer 07/21/2012
My family stayed here at Enchanted Forest in July, 2012. This home was absolutely fabulous, exactly what we were hoping for based on the photos. The floors were spotless, the beds were comfortable, plush actually, and everything worked. Towels were plentiful, cabinets were stocked, and hot tub was filled, clean and ready for use. My brother stayed at another similar home down the way and had a very unpleasant experience, which in comparison made clear how great Enchanted Forest really was. The owner (Holly) and housekeeper (Danna) were falling over themselves to be helpful. I was quite impressed by their attention to all details. I can’t give this place enough stars. Enchanted Forest was hands down the perfect choice for our Yosemite vacation!
Hi Holly, I never did get to say thanks for everything. by Trish Pessa 07/12/2012
Hi Holly, I never did get to say thanks for everything. I've been so busy since our vacation. It was a wonderful place. It was quiet I actually got in the hot tub it was awesome, so big! My husband and kids want one now.....even though the kids are grown I could barely get them out each night. The beds were awesome as was the pool table! The view at sunset was beautiful, I took a pic I should send it you, reds and blues just as beautiful as could be, my husband and I sat there with my daughters and watched till it disappeared, we went in when we thought we heard a some twigs breaking haha bc we saw 2 bear, and a coyote (huge) in the Valley! It was nice to stay right in yosemite. We never got to see it all, but when we get back there I will certainly stay at your place again. Thanks again and take care.
Fantastic getaway at 6000 feet by Bonnie May 05/18/2012
"Fantastic getaway at 6000 feet"

This was our first vacation rental after staying at various resorts/hotels, but our second trip to Yosemite. We were very pleased with the house. We stayed in the upstairs property (two flights of stairs outside to reach). It was spacious - dining room table seats 12 guests, kitchen has double Sub Zero fridge, two dishwashers, two trash compactors - could easily entertain or have several people staying here. The hot tub is great after a long day of hiking. A fireplace made for cozy evenings when it was cool outside. No a/c, but we didn't need it at this elevation. There were three bedrooms and three bathrooms - all clean and well appointed. Two bedrooms had doors that you could walk out onto a deck. Each deck had table and chairs. The living room had a pool table, tv with direct tv, a library of Dvd's, some books and magazines, and some board games. The house was very clean and we had clear instructions printed out and set on the kitchen counter with contact information (in case of emergencies or if we needed help with anything). Holly did a great job communicating with us - providing info about getting to the place, what's in the area, and of keeping us notified if anything would affect the property. If I were to change anything about this home, I'd add sheer drapes in the kitchen. Just personal preference, but it was different for us, not having lived in a development, to look out from kitchen and see the next duplex (there are three). It wasn't disruptive - this is a residential street and rather quiet. That very minor item is the only thing I could think of changing after spending 6 nights here - it was a relaxing place to stay and family friendly. As our first experience with a vacation rental, we would definitely stay again. Holly and her two property caretakers took great care in making everything comfortable - it helped make for a great vacation.

Wonderful retreat in Yosemite West! by Anne Slocum 02/20/2012
"Wonderful retreat in Yosemite West!"

Great town home in Yosemite west! Fun indoor hot tub, great gourmet kitchen, huge dinning room table that was great for our family reunion and wonderful comfortable beds. Had a pool table too. Only minutes from Badger pass. Great fun for the whole family and we had ages 7-89, everyone was happy! One of the more upscale homes in yosemite west. Owner was very helpful and nice.
Outstanding Luxury Rental In Yosemite by Ted Hart 12/10/2011
"Outstanding Luxury Rental In Yosemite"
This is truth in advertising, everything promised by the owner exceeded our expectations. Full three bedrooms with three bathrooms. Terrific supportive communication by the owner. Very well decorated, My family had a great time. Very close to some of the very best sites in Yosemite. The gourmet kitchen has great facilities which is fully furnished, includes a double refrigerator, double dishwashers. The hot tub and pool table make this rental a wonderful surprise.
