Escape by the Lake - the name says it all
Location! Walk to Fisherman's Cove or Lodge Beach from your Escape by the Lake. Play cards and enjoy grilling on the expansive deck while the sun drops behind the lake and the deer gather to watch from the yard below. When is the last time you really saw the Milky Way? Every night we were there... just out the front door! The kitchen is fully stocked - don't bring anything but your favorite chef's knife. The owner, Mike, was very attentive and called a few times to make sure everything was okay. He even encouraged us to make use of his canoe, which we did. The 11 year old boy with us could have lived at Lodge Beach, I think! Groveland is fun to explore and Yosemite National Park is a short drive away and my favorite destination. Columbia State Historical Park near Sonora was an educational, fun day trip, with another stop in the historical town of Jamestown, where over 100 movies were filmed! We brought our two pups ... "Escape" is dog friendly, though there was no fenced area, so keep that in mind. WIFI is available at the Iron Door Saloon, an historical gem in Groveland. The 11 year old and I enjoyed a visit to the nicely curated museum attached to the Groveland library. There's only one grocery store - on the corner of 120 and Ferretti Road, a bit pricey but certainly convenient. Now, back to the house: Yes, the bathrooms and kitchen could use some updating. Yes, it could have been cleaner. But, hey, you're at a cabin on a lake not the Ritz. Enjoy it. We did!!
