About Robert Foster

Our family has been part of the June Lake community since 1968. We love June Lake and are eager to share the experience with those appreciate the grandeur that the Eastern Sierras have to offer.

Robert Foster purchased this chalet in 1985

Why Robert Foster chose June Lake

You can ski to the hot tub from the best lift-assisted backcountry slopes in the country. World class rock climbing surrounds you. As the crow flies it's only 5.75 miles to Yosemite National Park. All the beauty of Yosemite and none of the sheeple.

What makes this chalet unique

Sit in the outdoor hydrotherapy tub and listen to the flow of a mountain stream while staring out on majestic peaks. Wildlife frequents the 2/3 of an acre on which the property sits.

Incredible experience - beautifully furnished home, and room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

I want to go baaack! This place was incredible! There are so many words to describe what a great place this was for our family, but none of them quite do it justice. Seven of us stayed for a week in wonderful June Lake, including my three young children and my older parents. All of us were fully satisfied and so sad when it was time to finally leave!

The beautiful luxury home was furnished in the fashion of a log cabin with a native-american theme. The craftsmanship of this place is absolutely gorgeous, and it honestly seems like no expense was spared when it came to levels of comfort. Multiple AC/Heating units, automatic lights that turned on when we needed them, and even heated bathroom floors were just a few of the amenities that improved our quality of life here.

The rooms were huge. It honestly felt like there are three master bedrooms in this house. One of them has a giant jacuzzi which was a lot of fun, and all three of them have a high quality memory-foam mattress. The facility was super clean when we arrived, and every square inch of the place served as fully functional space (as opposed to things that look pretty but are useless).

The downstairs contained a wonderful living room and kitchen space with plenty of room for my family to all sit down together and enjoy coffee while my children ran around and played together. The kitchen was fully stocked with every sort of cookware that we needed. The sink was large, and water throughout the house warmed within a few seconds. The living room on the other side had a large TV with a full array of DVD's and a stock of family board games nearby.

Everything is child-proofed, and I was extremely relieved to find that even simple things like the corners of tables were rounded, light sockets were all covered, water didn't get scalding hot, carpets were well-padded, and big things a toddler might pull over were non-existent. They had multiple "pack-and-play" cribs as well as other things you might want for a kid-friendly stay, which were also high quality, and so I give them an A+ for thinking through everything I might need for my kids.

Outdoors were great as well. The yard was fully landscaped and blended nature with function very well. Bridges crossed over two pretty streams of water, and we even saw a deer crossing the yard!

The location was great as well. They are located right in the center of June Lake, which makes driving anywhere easy.

Definitely stay here. That is all :)

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cabin. Very spacious, clean and well maintained. The hot tub was such a great way to end a long day at the slopes. The kitchen came well equipped with everything we needed and the huge dining room table is great for bigger parties. Highly recommend this place and will definitely be coming back!

Awesome place!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are to many things I can say about this place; but it would not be enough. You need to be here to understand how nice this place is. I have been coming to June mountain for the last 4 years and Yosemite chalet is the place my family and I love to stay at.

Refreshing, immaculate, cozy, and FUN!

  • 5 of 5

This property blew our minds. We were a party of six in desperate need of a break from reality.

From the time that we opened the door and stepped into the mud room to the bittersweet exit, we were in constant awe.

Definitely worth the 8 hour drive from San Diego! We look forward to returning to this property in the future!

I won’t describe the details of the interior or exterior, because you NEED to experience it for yourselves. It’s AMAZING!

Robert, thank you for accommodating us every step of the way! You are an amazing property manager/owner and we greatly appreciate how attentive you are!

Loved every aspect of the Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week here, blessed with an overnight blanket of fresh powder that made the trip to June Mountain Ski Area even more outstanding. The Chalet was the perfect home away from home for us and we will definitely return!!
