Memorable Moments

For decades, owners and guests of Mountain Retreat Resort have returned to enjoy a relaxing, resort-like experience in one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world.

Read below to explore each of our owners’ stories regarding their vacations at Mountain Retreat Resort.

We have owned at Mountain Retreat Resort since it's opening in the early 1980's. We have always enjoyed coming to the Resort. Many of the employees, which we have known for a long time, are like coming home to family. The Resort is always clean and the activities are fun. Our kids loved coming when they were young and now they come with their families. I think that says a lot about the Resort.

Wow! The service was incredible. Very friendly and happy place. They go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. Ice cream social and fun events and fantastic location with tons of trees and fresh air. Fun pool and hot tub inside for the kids to use all year around.

Small town with great wineries and restaurants in the area. Lots to do anytime of year. Condos are well maintained and very clean with the most comfortable beds anywhere! The staff is also great! Resort activities are fun - especially the pancake breakfast on Monday mornings. The indoor pool, spa, sauna, and workout room are added bonuses.

We have been having a wonderful winter vacation at Mt Retreat in the town of Arnold. We have been coming to this area for over 35 years, and have, seen the area grow into a great area for all kinds of vacation adventures. The Bear Valley ski area, down the hill to Big Trees State Park, to Arnold, to Murphys, and into Angels Camp. The resort has great condos with everything you would need for your stay. The staff is the best in the business, and are always ready to help with any problems or ideas to help you enjoy your vacation. We are already planning our vacation for next year at Mt Retreat.

A wonderful place to play and relax The people that work there are awesome. Love them like family., There are lots of roads to travel and see the country. The gold rush country is very exciting to learn about and the passes over the High Sierras are something to experience.

We really loved the staff at this resort. Best RCI stay we have done so far. The location is so serene and staff so accommodating! Our unit - number 8 - was great because it was on the far end and was so very quiet and beautiful on that end. Really liked the extras they included - free pancake breakfast, ice cream social, bottle of wine - a pizza night would have been fun and popcorn for the matinee (which was cancelled due to lack of sign ups). It would have been nice if the pool was a few degrees warmer and the Jacuzzi a few degrees cooler, especially for my young kids. We would definitely recommend this property and come back again. We had so much fun exploring Big Trees, the historic towns nearby and playing in the snow! Thanks again =)
