Retreat style cabin 45 minutes from Yosemite
Came here with a group of 5 adults. We had planned a weekend of hiking in Yosemite and then white water rafting on Toulumne river. Had one of the most memorable weekends with my family thanks in large part to this cabin we rented. Reasons why I loved this cabin: Location: To start off, this cabin is in the middle of this quiet little town that you see only in movies. The house is set in this huge big gated community with a wrap around deck that has a gorgeous view of the golf course and lake. The town, the gated community and the deck overlooking the golf course and lake all force you to relax and stop worrying about the hustle and bustle of real life. Amenities: To add to the cabins appeal, the basement has a game room consisting of a foosball table and ping pong table. The basement has a glass sliding door which opens up onto the golf course. The cabin is very spacious and has plenty of room for a large party to spread out and enjoy evenings bbq'ing on the deck while watching the sunset over the lake. The living room is nice and cozy and has a large TV so everyone can sit and relax and watch movies in the evening. Also, as I mentioned before this cabin is in a gated community that has a community swimming pool that is just a short walk away. The pool is large and well kept. And there is a nice restaurant that is adjacent to it if you feel like taking a break from cooking. There is a lake within the gated community that has boat rentals. There is wild deer and birds running/flying all around the place and creates such a serene atmosphere within this community. Distance from Yosemite: While Yosemite is 45 mins away, a lot of you might be thinking you would rather stay closer to the park. I too thought that initially when we were looking up places to stay. However, having stayed in Groveland, I have to say it adds to the vacation if you stay here as you get a wonderful retreat style vacation where you can check out of reality for a few days.
