Owl's Lookout (05/061) 12541 Mt Jefferson Street, Groveland, CA 95321

This cozy, one-story home in Groveland, CA is a great place to experience the outdoors in comfort. With nearby lake access and games like darts and pool, plus community amenities, up to six will have a memorable time here!

Located in the quiet Pine Mountain Lake neighborhood, you'll enjoy access to community tennis courts, golf, horseback riding, and a shared pool. Plus, this is the closest you can stay to the majestic Yosemite National Park, just 25 miles away, and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is just 54 miles to the north!

The house itself has a very comfortable vibe. As you approach the door, you'll find a wrap-around deck with a bench in front, and a larger seating area in back with a cushioned swing and a gas grill. Drink your coffee out here on a nice morning to admire the sunshine and the peaceful sounds of wilderness all around.

Inside, grab a seat on the couch or one of the reclining armchairs in the living room and fire up the wood stove or wood-burning fireplace to get cozy in chilly weather. You might enjoy watching a DVD on the flatscreen cable TV, or gather the group to play a board game on the soft carpet.

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook delicious meals, including a dishwasher to make clean-up easy. There is plenty of counter space and natural light from the windows, and the dining table in the next room over will fit everyone for a family dinner.

A bonus room provides entertainment with a pool table and dart board. Kids will love hanging out in this room while the adults chat upstairs, or you might all find entertainment down here! Take the patio chairs out the sliding glass door to bask comfortably in the sun or look for wildlife on a nice day.

Three bedrooms and two full baths make this home suitable for up to six travelers. One bedroom features two twin beds, a second features a queen-size bed, and the master bedroom has a king-size bed, plus a full private bath with a jetted tub. A shared full bath is easily accessible for all.

A private washer/dryer allows you to freshen up any laundry you may have, and you can use this time to find peace away from work, as WiFi is not provided at the house (you can find it nearby at the Mountain Sage Internet Café if you need it).

This house is perfect for a family or a group of friends looking for a comfortable outdoor vacation - walk to the lake to sunbathe on the beach, swim or fish in the refreshing water, or rent a nonmotorized boat from the marina to enjoy other water activities. Nearby, you'll also find horseshoes, horseback riding, and more than 20 miles of trails for hiking and biking around the area.

For anyone interested in beautiful nature areas, Yosemite National Park is a required stop! Just a 25-mile drive will bring you to the edge of the park, and you can continue to the valley floor, where you can see El Capitan, Half-Dome, and take a drive or hike up to Glacier Point to see a breathtaking view. Giant Sequoias will tower over you in Tuolumne Grove, and you can learn about the natural history of the park at the museum. After all that, you'll still be able to make it home in time for a late dinner at one of the several dining options in Groveland. And if you're looking for a change of pace, check out Black Oak Casino just 27 miles north.

You deserve a break, and this home is just what you're looking for - book today!

    We wanted a place to give easy access to Yosemite Valley, this property under normal conditions would be fantastic. Due to road closure of the 120 this was not possible for us. The location of the property within Pine Mountain Lake was easy to access as at times it could seem like a labyrinth. Very comfortable property with most of the modcons one could wish for (stereo and wifi notable absentees yet many would find this attractive). On balance we would be happy to stay again at Owls Lookout.

    Very comfy home, we used the grill, the pool table, the kitchen, the fireplace, the tub with jets. We live in busy area so to get away into the woods and be near a lake was super relaxing. I think we'll be planning another trip in the summer/fall. The house was clean. Vacasa staff was friendly and helpful. Super easy to follow instructions and directions.

    We loved our stay at the "Owl's Lookout" over a long weekend. It was quiet, clean, felt private and so very comfortable. The pool table proved to be more fun than we expected and the TV let us watch our movies on a better screen than what we have at home. We were close enough to Yosemite to make a day trip to see the beauty and get a little bit of snow, but far enough away to not have to deal with the cold. Overall we feel like we found a hidden gem. We can hardly wait for a summer visit.

    I stayed with my teen-adult children (15,18,21) in this house the week after Christmas. We had a blast! We drove to the south entrance of yosemitie for a horse drawn sleigh ride through the snow, ending with apple cider by a warm fire. Another day we spent relaxing at the house working on our pool game, darts, card games, and cooked homemade food together. Walks around the neighborhood are breathtaking even in the winter, and so much warmer than we expected! Another day we drove about 2 hours north to spend an amazing day snowmobiling! The house was plenty big for all of us and we enjoyed sitting in the family room playing games by the fire each night. The jacuzzi tub was amazing after a rough day of snow play.
    This was an incredible family vacation that my growing children and I appreciate so much and will never forget!
    Cons: only one towel each, no bath mat, electric dart board broken (small magnetic dart board used instead).
    Hopefully these items will be fixed because this is a great place for wonderful memories! I would love to stay again

    Loved the location of the house however, The toilet seat in the Master bathroom was cracked so when I sat on it pinched me! Really, you can't afford to replace a toilet seat they are so cheap!! The carpets and the sofa in the living room really need to be replaced they are pretty filthy. the garbage bins were full so we had to leave the garbage in the garage. Other than that the house was clean and the game room was a real plus!

    This was a great place to spend the weekend. If you are planning to visit Yosemite but don't want to stay inside the Yosemite valley, then this is an ideal location for you. The house was clean and nice.

    The kitchen was fully equipped except a frying pan. It would be great if they had some frying pans of different sizes.

    Good: Property was very spacious, comfortable, and had good views. Loved the game room. It had a pool table and few other board games.

    Bad: Kitchen utensils, oven were not clean. Kitchen floor was very sticky as well.

    Worst: Checking in took 2.5 hours as they forgot to put house keys! With spotty or no coverage in Yosemite valley we were stranded for 2.5 hours in the middle of nowhere. Vacasa customer care representative helped us connect with the property manager and get us in.
