    Sharon G from Yucaipa, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Great location. Was just across the street from Tenaya Lodge where our son's wedding took place. Just minutes away from the south entrance into the park. The town of Oakhurst was 13 miles away where you could buy just about anything that you need in the way of supplies, or just go out to eat for the night. Very comfortable for 4 couples (you could probably have a couple of kids sleep on the couch and futon if needed). There is a "full" bath in every bedroom. The only thing that I would do if I were the replace the 2 twin mattresses (they have seen better days). Other than that, I highly recommend the place. My husband and I will definitely rent this property again. Oh, I forgot the parking. Lots of room for 7 cars as advertised!

    Laura P from Austin, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Excellent option to stay near Yosemite. The house was exactly as described and the pictures were accurate. Kitchen was full equipped to prepare meals for the whole family.

    My only complaint: It is very close to the Highway so it is noisy, which competes with the otherwise relaxing location in the woods. The noise started very early in the morning.

    We were only at this property for 2 nights. We had our kids and my sister in law and her kids there. It was so convenient to be this close to the park entrance. The cabin was cozy and had some great outdoor spaces. Short walk to the general store which was also nice. I would recommend this property to people with kids or for a nice cozy getaway.

    Overall we all had a really nice time at the Laughing Bear Cabin & Yosemite. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen.
    Tips for Yosemite if you are 62 or older you can get a yearly entrance pass for $10.00. Also for those who don't make the senior discount, we didn't realize our $30 entrance fee was good for 3 or 4 days. Be sure to get the deals.

    As a teacher finding lodgings for students and chaperones can be expensive and difficult. Renting this house for the 9 of us was so easy, relatively inexpensive and perfect for our needs. The house was beautiful, in great condition, had everything we needed plus more. I will rent this for years to come! Thank You!

    Linda L from Alpharetta, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We just love this house. It had everything we needed. The screen door to the glass door to the deck was off track and didn't work, but hubby is very handy and even though there was no screw driver on the property, he was able to fix it using my Swiss Army knife. We ran out of propane for the BBQ 2 days before we left, so we couldn't finish cooking out burgers & hot dogs. Haha...road traffic is a loud, but we just all slept with a fan on, so it was okay. LOVE the fire pit; we roasted marshmallows. Thanks to Jennie at Century 21 for all your help and Brigitte & Brian answering my questions when Jennie wasn't there. :)

    Megan H from Castro Valley, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Had a fantastic experience at the Laughing Bear cabin. It was a bit tricky to find in the rain & snow because drifts of snow had covered the street sign and the number on the house is not visible from the street - just know that it's the first cabin on the right and the Century 21 sign is there too. Also GPS said it was on the right side of the highway but the street is actually on the left side of the highway. Had to drive around a bit before figuring that out. The cabin was clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Bathrooms in every bedroom made it easy for three families to share the space and still have privacy. Close enough to Tenaya Lodge to make it easy for the husbands to attend a work conference there during the day. Lots and lots of things around the cabin that you would find helpful in your stay - a few sleds on the back porch for snow play, tools for using the bbq, space heaters, well-appointed kitchen. We all kept remarking about how much we enjoyed being there and can't wait to get back!

    We had a great time staying this property for our two-family 3-night post-Christmas getaway and the property was exactly what we expected based on the description and reviews. The property was spotless and the kitchen very well equipped. The proximity to both the Goat Meadow Snow Play Area (2.5 miles away) and the Tenaya Lodge (1 mile away) meant there was plenty of stuff for the kids to do.

    Location was perfect as we had a wedding at the Tanaya Lodge. The house was a little hard to find as Google Maps showed it on the right side of the Hwy instead of on the left side. Only down fall was there was no community bathroom. All bathrooms are inside the rooms (which we liked) however, just wish a 1/2 bath would have been avail for communal purposes.

    We had really great experience with our family. The house is really good and next to 41 freeway. I wish there could have been Netflix or some other online streaming on the TV.

    good amount of space and hammock was really good for kids.


    Also the bedsheets were not clean, both of my kids had somekind of rash which is related to dust-mites. this was just after they slept on the beds.

    Great place for two families to stay. Really enjoyed the rooms, the kitchen and the outdoor area. While it's next to a road, it's not noisy and you can walk across the road to Yosemite Tenaya Lodge which was great for food. Get your food & beer in Oakhurst as it's the closest place with a Safeway, Starbucks, craft beer, etc. The cabin is really comfy and slept 2 families of four w/ teens great!

    Pamela F from Long Beach, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We have travelled to Yosemite for the past 21 years on an annual basis, mostly staying across the road at the Tenaya Lodge. After raising their prices continuously over the years, we started to look for more affordable lodgings for out trips (we not only travel with our family of 4, but also host friends and family). When I find Laughing Bear, it seemed too good to be true. Not only does it comfortably sleep 10, it also has ample living, cooking and dining space so that we're not on top of each other, but also has an intimate feel that inspires games, conversations, and privacy. It's location gets you to Yosemite south gate and the sequoias in minutes, and the are many secluded roads where you can hike, walk, and stargaze in beautiful silence. This was our second year at Laughing Bear, and we can't wait to go back. It's a beautiful sanctuary in the middle of one of God's most stunning creations. Thanks to Century 21 for their responsiveness, kindness, and exemplary customer service! One note they don't furnish Wi-Fi, which we love so we can unplug. If you need it Tenaya Lodge is happy to let them use theirs for free.

    Loved the house and all the rooms. Nice deck. Very clean, but there's no Wifi and Verizon cell coverage for virtually non existent. AT&T works however. We own a business and it was hard to keep in touch with the office. Garbage disposal back up on the last day with minimal use but that's fixable otherwise, it was fantastic. Cute, clean, 10 mins from Wawona and a hour of so to the valley floor.

    Hi, We overall enjoyed our stay! A couple of small details we felt were overlooked, there wasn't any dish soap to hand wash a dish, that would have been good and there were no more trash bags for the kitchen trash container, since there isn't recycling a lot goes in the trash. Over all the cabin was great and clean and was great for a group. Some more comfortable seating in the living room would be nice, it was challenging to all enjoy conversation or movie watching together. Just those small things would have been nice :)

    Karen E from Santa Rosa, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful time at this beautiful vacation home!
    The house was clean and in great shape. It was cleverly decorated with photos, cute signs and things to match its mountain location near Yosemite. There were also informational signs, safety signs & helpful signs that reflected an organized environment.
    Some things not obvious in the photos: There is a deck area with a patio table and barbecue, and a deck area with a fire pit. There are plenty of patio chairs for both they are just stacked up between guests to help keep them clean. The house actually has four bedrooms and an entry/hallway that fits a foldout futon-couch. The living room wasn’t quite big enough for us all to enjoy a movie together comfortably however it didn’t bother us because we went into Yosemite practically every day and didn’t have much time for movies. The dining room table was plenty big for all of us to enjoy dinner and games together.
    The location was ideal for our family! It was only 5 minutes to the South Gate of Yosemite, 15 minutes to Wawona, 20 minutes to Oakhurst & 20 minutes to Bass Lake. The small general store in Fish Camp helped tie us over with basic groceries when we were too tired to drive into Oakhurst.
    The activities we enjoyed were: Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, Several Hikes including the Panorama Trail (which was amazing but exhausting), Wawona Pioneer History Center, Swimming in the South Fork of the Merced River, Nelder Grove Shadow of the Giants & Fishing in Bass Lake (which was low and really smoky from a nearby forest fire).
    Even though there were neighbors on one side, the house seemed pretty secluded, the hammock was a lot of fun especially for the kids in our family & the sun room was a great place to relax. Overall the house was a lovely home away from home. We only wished we had more time to hang out in it. We have already recommended it to several people and would definitely stay there again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home

    a guest from Rancho Cucamonga, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We came here for a July family gathering and had a wonderful time. This home is well decorated, and there was always something new to see in each of the rooms. There is lots of room to spread out, and the large kitchen made it easy to cook our meals. The kitchen was well equipped. Three bedrooms are located upstairs, each with its own restroom. The futon is not in a bedroom. One bedroom is located downstairs with an attached bathroom- the only accessible bathroom for guests to use while downstairs. The barbecue and fire pit propane tanks were empty upon arrival, but fortunately we were able to immediately get a hold of someone who came with one as a replacement within an hour. This home does not have AC so it did get warm and at night with the windows open we heard street noise. Lucky for us the weather cooled down and even gave us some needed rain. This home is 5 minutes to the Yosemite entrance gate and it took us about an hour to get to the valley. Thank you for lending us your rental home - we enjoyed it very much!
