Sleeping up to six guests, this lovely Groveland vacation rental includes all the comforts of home and is perfectly located to offer community amenities like a lake and seasonal swimming pool. Plus, Yosemite National Park is only 25 miles away and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is only 56 miles away.
Located in the Pine Mountain Lake community just outside quiet and historic Groveland, this is a great destination for your family vacation or friend getaway. Enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, horseback riding, kayaking and swimming in the Pine Mountain Lake, and playing golf. Though motorized boats are not allowed and guests may not bring their own watercraft, the marina has a variety of rentals available!
Surrounded by lush green grass and tall trees, this house feels cozy and welcoming. The interior is a no-frills space that ensures you feel right at home and can truly relax.
After a day hiking in Yosemite, kick your feet up in the living room in front of the brick-framed fireplace. Flip a movie on the TV, which has a DVD/VCR player included, as well as a stockpile of movies to choose from. Though there is no Internet access here, there is an Internet cafe in town. Turn music on the stereo and enjoy a delicious meal prepared in the full kitchen.
Tile countertops, major appliances, and great add-ons like a coffeemaker, dishwasher, microwave, and toaster - as well as a nearby grill - make whipping up meals for the whole crew a breeze. A dining room table for six is adjacent to the kitchen, and there is also a nice patio table set on the back deck for dining al fresco.
Come nightfall, rinse off in one of the two full bathrooms before retreating to a lovely bedroom for a good night's rest. Up to six guests can sleep comfortably here among the three bedrooms. Queen-size beds are found in two rooms, and the last has two twin-size beds. A washer and dryer are also included for your convenience!
With walking trails, a sparkling seasonal pool, and even tennis courts, there's no doubt the Pine Mountain Lake community can keep everyone busy, but don't miss out on checking out charming Groveland in between days in Yosemite as well! Visit the railroad museum, shop for souvenirs, and dine at historical saloons.
Stunning Yosemite National Park is home to numerous trails for all abilities so the entire family can join. Take a leisurely half-mile stroll to the Lower Yosemite Falls, the largest waterfall in America, or take it a step further and hike to the top for a breath-taking experience. Hiking Half-Dome is a great workout for those who are more experienced, or you could take the whole family through Tunnel Tree and past the oldest sequoia tree on some of the family-friendly hikes. More outdoor activities include water sports in the summer and snowboarding and skiing in the winter. And indoor fun can be had at Black Oak Casino, 29 miles north.
Book this casual Northern California home and have peace of mind knowing you'll have everything you need to create the perfect family or friend getaway.
