Gallery House was a lovely place to stay! Very clean and uncluttered with plenty of space for a family of four to spread out. We loved sitting out on the porch every morning for some coffee. Having the pool nearby was a big plus too.

The house was one of the prettiest we have ever stayed in. We loved the artwork and the relaxing decor. It was very pleasant and comfortable, our family of 5 had plenty of space and we enjoyed the AC and ceiling fans during some very hot days. Also enjoyed the amenities of Pine Mountain lake - especially the pool!
The kitchen is not very well equipped, especially when it comes to pots and pans - I had a hard time cooking a meal for 5 with the dishes I found there, and would recommend bringing your own. The driveway is, indeed, very steep - but after the first try my husband got the gist of it and was able to conquer it without a 4WD. Finally, a kind word and a high five to Shay from Vacasa, the local rep. He was extremely responsive and helpful, solved our problems quickly and efficiently and did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable! Yay Shay!

This house is comfortable and only about a half hour from the entrance to Yosemite. The house could have been a bit cleaner though. We had no issues entering the community and getting a parking pass.

High ground clearance vehicle is recommended. We really enjoyed this stay. The house setting is great for vacation. Very relaxing and comfortable. The house needs a little bit more attention to the cleaning. There are chips and crumbles under the dinning table. Oven has a giant puddle of grease on the bottom. I wish the HOA is more friendly to allow us to use our own paddle boards.

Great location, loved sitting on the porch at night with a glass of wine. But that driveway is steep. Recommend a 4x4 truck or SUV so you don’t scrape the nose of your vehicle going in and out.
Manager response:

Very nice and comfortable place to stay! Excellent proximity to The Grill and other site amenities. Very close to Yosemite and other attractions.

Clean and has all amenities to make your stay comfortable. Great location as it is about 30 mins to the Yosemite Entrance. This was my first experience with VACASA and the process did not go smoothly. As we checked in at the security gate, the personnel informed us that our names were not listed. Took 3 phone calls to VACASA and 30 min of delay to remedy the situation. Make sure you confirm with VACASA before your trip to ensure that all administrative logistics are sorted out. For privacy concerns, the instructions to locate the lockbox is incorrect, which added further delay to actually getting inside the house. I thank my detective kids for actually figuring out how to get inside. We were not able to use the WIFI as the password supplied to us was incorrect. We didn't mind as we intentionally decided to take a family break from devices and TV streams. We also were not able to use the garage as the access codes were not provided. Fortunately, this was not a big issue since we had only one car due to family members backing out. If we had additional guest cars, then we definitely needed the garage and could have been problematic. After driving for most of the day with tired whining kids in the back, these troubles were the last thing we wanted to experience. The driveway is indeed very steep so low cars beware.

Manager response:
Hi, Jaime! We appreciate your feedback and are so sorry you experienced any inconvenience entering the home. There is no garage access as it is personal storage space for the owners at this time. The password for the WiFi will be checked. Thank you!

The pictures do not do this home justice. We were hoping for snow but instead had beautiful almost 70° weather. The home is absolutely gorgeous and comfortable. My family felt right at home. Only issue was being able to speak to someone. I was able to get through once. I wanted to let them know the coffee pot broke. Truth is someone should have said something before. The handle was lose and well it eventually caused it to completely come off break the pot and being that It was filled with hot coffee. Well you can imagine what our sock wearing feet felt. Thankfully it was not super bad. The owners were not kidding about the driveway. Oh wee get your vehicle up that steep driveway is a job in its self. None the less I super recommend this home. If you need a relaxing getaway even with kids this is the home to be at. The cosy feel of the entire place was worth my burnt toes. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We do hope to come back again. Your friends #listenlinda and family.

A great family friendly place to stay with all the amenities you need. The kids loved the games and awesome selection of DVD's. The porch was a plus where you can relax in tranquility with great views. The only down side was that the garage had some garbage bags on the floor with garbage which wasn't so pleasant to see. I would recommend that there be a designated garbage can to place garbage/recycling in the garage when leaving. Other than that everything was great. Thinking of coming back in the summer to make use of the lake. Thanks.

Really nice house!
Everything was very nice and comfortable.
Victoria M. Jun 2019
The rooms are spacious and the facilities are excellent. You don't need anything except your wardrobe. We did not find a bbq grill, but that's ok because there are plenty by the lakeside.

The place was really tidy, good enough space for 8 people to hang out in the living room and have fun.
