Although we can tell you about our home, perhaps the best way to understand what it is like to stay here is to read honest impressions from visitors just like you. We invite you to browse through this transcript of our guest book. Enjoy!
April 6th -10th, 2016 (Drawing of a smiling head)
What a great little retreat for our family. Little Pine was the perfect haven; warm and cosy after our little adventures up Mist Trail, The Nelder Grove (we had the place to ourselves! Smaller and maybe less spectacular than Mariposa but so much more peaceful & remote) and then the fabulous Sugar Pine Railway today. What could be better than a ride on a steam train on a wet & cold Spring day. What an awesome vacation - Thank you David & CJ!!

Little Pine is a great place to stay for a quiet getaway and so convenient to all the wonders of Yosemite! My husband, the dogs and I enjoyed our stay immensely. And thank you to CJ for guiding us to the fire road (old stage coach road) nearby. It is a great place to wander with the dogs.
S, P, Casper and Duke.
Myself and my three kids enjoyed our stay at Little Pine. Spent three days in Yosemite - one day in the valley and two days skiing in Badger Pass! While the "Pine" may be "Little" it is full of anything one would need and kept very neat and clean!

We loved Little Pine! Just like being at home except we had snow! The cabin is very well stocked and very cozy. Being so close to Yosemite is a true gift. We plan to come back sometime soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Little Pine! We felt at home in the cozy cabin. The snow storm created a beautiful, breath-taking winter wonderland with Little Pine to keep us comfortable & warm. We hope to visit again!
J, B & Dolce (paw print)
What a perfect, cozy, little getaway! the Little Pine cabin was such a comfortable base to return to each day with our dog and our 11 month old. We really appreciated how well-stocked the cabin was!
Thank you and happy New Year!
A, D, Z (?) & Capri (paw print)
Great location for skiing! Very close to Yosemite. It's nice to come back here after a day in the snow especially because of the gravity ground furnace. It snowed a lot while we were here, and we built a snowman which we named Trumpy. Thanks for the awesome house.
11/24-2015 - 11/27/2015
Thank you for the awesome house! Everything was tidy, and there was so much kitchenware we didn't need to bring hardly anything. It snowed the first day, but skies were clear the second. Thanks once again!

We had a great time at Little Pine - this was our first time to Yosemite. Celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. Too bad the weather didn't cooperate we didn't let it stop us.

We were so [??] to enjoy your hospitality at Little Pine. Absolutely the best-stocked VRBO listing we've visited. Made us all feel at home. So many birds - even right around the cabin - Stellar's Jay, wood peckers and finches. Too bad Mariposa Closed - Nelder Grove was a fine substitute. Thanks again!

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here immensely. It was the perfect getaway after volunteering at CDA CARES in Fresno. We enjoyed the great air, yummy food and getting away from it all.

After spending 5 days at Mammoth we really looked forward to come to "Little Pine" and just take in the beauty, the peace & quite and the solitude!! This is a place my husband spend a lot of time growing up. So a lot of memories shared!! Thank you for offering such a wonderful retreat!! We loved all the wildlife especially the herons!! We will be back!!
T & B V I
Thank you for giving us a home away from home! So thoughtfully stocked and provided - you anticipated our every need and we slept like babies. We especially enjoyed our little chipmunk friend on the stump outside the "dining room" window. We will remember our "Little Pine" home fondly from MN
A & R O
We have really enjoyed our stay at Little Pine and appreciated all the things provided to make our stay comfortable. Yosemite has rocketed to the top as our favorite national park, Hope to visit again! Thank you for everything!

Had an amazing time here. People in Fish Camp were awesome. The Little Pine is not so little and had everything we needed and more. CJ, the caretaker was awesome and we couldn't be happier to return. Thank you for having us, the place is magic.
M, J & L Chicago, IL
Had a _Great_ time at "Little Pine"! Thank-you for having it _well_ stocked. It was _very_ _comfortable_. It was a side adventure figuring out what the noisy & obnoxious birds were. We found out they were herring. That was fun in itself! This is a great base camp for Yosemite too. Thank-you & we hope to be back.

Thank you so much for letting us stay here. We came from Denver and have been having a great time with family in the big cabin. This is truly such a wonderful, peaceful place to have as our home base. The kids loved all of the running around they were able to do!

A wonderful 3 nights and 2 days exploring the beautiful Yosemite Valley. The cottage was so cosy, welcoming and clean with all we would possibly want. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable, we hope we get to come back again someday.
H, M & M
Fantastic way to celebrate 60! Mother Nature took us to her treasures here in Yosemite. Must say the Mariposa Hike was absolutely the best. So nice to come back to your wonderful cabin & regain our strength for our next hike. We flew from Chicago...rented a motorcycle and now head to the ocean - it just keeps getting better!!!
L & K "Chicago"
Had a marvelous time! Like being at home but in the mountains. Very comfortable & accommodating. We came up for a wedding which was also very fun. We plan on returning. Such a nice close getaway.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin @ Little Pines.
C & C,
P.S. The Hobbit animated movie brought back some fond memories, a bonus to an excellent weekend.
We enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is the perfect size for 2 people.
We had a great laugh over the prominently displayed cleaning products EVERYWHERE. Makes me want to buy my own supply of little white towels. The humor continued when we were visited by the new lower house neighbors who thought the cleaning of their house was ongoing since the supplies clearly hadn't been put away.
And the final laugh came when we visited friends who were staying in another of your rentals they had the exact same display of paper towels in every room, dozens of little white towels and of course the cleaning products display on the kitchen window sill.
So, not only was our stay delightful, but now we have the enduring story to share between life-long friends.
The only thing missing is the part where you tell us all _why_. Of the many houses I've rented all over the country, this was the most unique in that regard. :-)
C and T
A great little getaway! Thanks for letting us enjoy your house!

We loved our stay at Little Pine! It was comfy and just right for us. Our 18 mos old daughter loved it. Highlights were Sentinel Dome and Shadow of the Giants. It was amazing to have beautiful Sequoias all to ourselves. Had a great time.

We had a wonderful time staying at Little Pine. A great base of operations for our visit to Yosemite. There are so many of the little necessities here that made everything so easy & convenient. Our boys loved the hot chocolate & our 3 yr old son said each day "I want to go home to our woods house." Couldn't have asked for a better arrangement. Thanks!
M, A, G & S
July 2-5, 2013
This is the perfect launch pad for exploring Yosemite. We've made breakfast and dinner here every night and slept soundly in the comfy bed. Anyone reading this should check out Vernal Falls, Taft Point, and the river in the valley when leaving the village. Today we're off to explore Mariposa Grove and go for a swim somewhere.
Thanks for making our stay so nice. We'll recommend and hopefully return.
