Surrounded by trees and decorated with rustic charm, this Groveland vacation home is the perfect spot for your next trip! With access to a community swimming pool, plus a great location near the area's best attractions, this home will be an ideal backdrop for your relaxing getaway.
Under a mile from the Pine Mountain Lake Marina and under two miles to the golf course and central Groveland, this house is in an area that's convenient but not crowded. Yosemite National Park, with stunning scenery and hiking trails galore, is only 25 miles east.
The open-concept living space is great for spending time together. Start a fire in the gas fireplace and put on a DVD, Netflix, or satellite TV. If you need to look up a recipe for dinner, log onto the WiFi. A fully equipped kitchen has everything you'll need to prepare delicious meals, plus a coffeemaker to ensure that you've got plenty of energy to do so. There's even a dishwasher for easy cleanup!
The large front deck is the perfect place to entertain and relax on warm afternoons. There is a quiet back deck as well, to enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings of tall cedar and pine trees. Breathe in the smell of the trees as sunlight dapples the wooded surroundings, and enjoy the aroma of grilling that perfect steak, or a fresh-caught fish on the gas bbq. Watch carefully for wildlife and you might see deer, squirrels, and other furry neighbors!
With three bedrooms, as many as six guests will sleep comfortably here. Outdoor-themed decor evokes the lakes and streams of the nearby area in the two rooms with 1 King bed, and 1 Queen bed/1 futon in same room. The third bedroom has a lovely and very comfortable full sized bed.
There are two bathrooms, the better to share space with a group. A washer and dryer make it easy to get clothes clean after outdoor activities.
Families will love all of the options for entertainment nearby. The Pine Mountain Lake community has a fantastic green for those who want to play some golf, right by tennis courts and a community pool. Use your parking pass to gain access to the pool. Rent a bike or a steed from the equestrian stables and explore local trails, or head to the lake to fish or go kayaking or sailing with a boat rented from the marina. In the summer, the kids will be thrilled by the movies they show on the lawn at night!
Yosemite has so much to offer the intrepid outdoor adventurer. Amazing rock climbing can be found throughout the park, but advanced climbers may be most excited by the extended crack climbs in the Merced River Canyon. If you're looking for something a bit more zen, bring binoculars for birdwatching or a fishing pole for stream and river fishing. There is also lake fishing at Pine Mountain Lake, fishing licenses required, but can be purchased at the Marina Store. Perhaps best of all, the stunning scenery is an inspiration to photographers, so make sure to bring your good camera. Dodge Ridge Ski Resort (54 miles north) and Black Oak Casino (27 miles north) also provide plenty of diverse activities.
