Groveland house description

When you arrive at Journey's End, you will find yourself in a fully furnished home that is the perfect get away. Located just 26 miles from Yosemite, Pine Mountain Lake, a gated community of mostly vacation homes, is a short three hour drive from the Bay Area. It has many amenities including boating, tennis, golf, horseback riding and swimming.

Whether your vacation is a weekend or a full week you will enjoy sharing cozy nights around the fire in winter, or dining al fresco on the deck. Our three bedroom, two bath home has an inviting open floor plan, all new furnishings and linens. The living room has a quaint wood stove and surround sound TV with satellite dish. There is comfortable seating for eight people. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs, along with a gas BBQ grill on the deck. French doors from the dining room and master bedroom open to the deck overlooking a wooded ravine frequented by deer in the early morning and evening.

Drive or bicycle to downtown Groveland, just two miles away. Be sure to visit the Iron Door Saloon, the oldest saloon still in operation in California with frequent live music. We are a 20 minute drive from Don Pedro Reservoir, for waterskiers, boaters, fishing, and swimming. Jamestown and Sonora are 30-40 minutes away where you will find shopping, movies, live theater, antiquing, and restaurants in an old west setting.

Yosemite is a 30 minute drive away, where you will take in the breathtaking waterfalls and world renowned views. You can visit Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, the Valley, or Tuolumne Meadows for majestic views and hiking. If you choose to visit the Valley, you can park and ride the shuttle bus to all famous destinations and trail heads. Or your ideal vacation may be sleeping in our hammock on the deck, or swinging on the front porch swing. Enjoy!

                    This was the perfect place to stay for our group of 8 adults for our weekend getaway to Yosemite. It was very clean, comfortable, and spacious. We also really enjoyed the game room complete with an air hockey and pool table. The whole process of reserving the place was simple as well, as Cory was very responsive and easy to work with. We just wish we had more time to spend here, as this was only a weekend trip. We definitely look forward to coming back for a longer stay in the future!

                    Our stay at Journey's End was fantastic. We (the kids, especially) really enjoyed the game room. The tub in the master bedroom was sublime. The house was beautiful and the kitchen was well-stocked. We would definitely come back.

                    This is a great place. My brother, cousins, and I do an annual trip, and this year was the Bay area and Yosemite. We originally had a hotel room in the park, but I suggested this house instead. Everyone was glad we went with this choice. Cory was very easy and accomondating to work with, making the process a snap. We got in late Fri night. Rafting with Sierramac on Sat and hiking the Mist Trail in Yosemite on Sunday. This house was the perfect base camp. The grocery store and several restaurants and bars are close by; so, you're close to things if you need them--easy to pick up snacks, breakfast, etc. And since we were there for short time, we didn't want to stock the fridge. We had dinner with someone we met on the rafting trip at 2 Guys pizza place (good stuff), which was faster and easier than grilling out, something we'd normally do for a longer stay. It's only 25 minutes to SierraMac rafting and an hour into the parking lot at Yosemite Village. This was perfect for us. We did all the outdoor adventures/exploring in the morning and afternoon, and then could come back to the large, comfortable house to clean up and relax. You can sit on the deck or watch Sports Center in the main room, something my group liked being able to do. We also had a brief air hockey tournament in the garage. We came before the lake was open; so, we didn't get to do much there, but it's obviously a nice option when it does open. And at night, the comfortable beds are nice end to the day. We had a great time and absolutely would come back.

                    This was the perfect get away home for us to spend quality time with our parents. The single story and floor plan was great, comfortable beds and furniture and well stocked kitchen with dishes, glassware, pots/pans etc. Fully stocked spices allowed us some fun experimenting when we grilled out on the large deck while watching deer, blue jays and squirrels. Although there were only four of us, the house did not seem too large, yet it would be a great place for larger families/friends as well. The game room provided us with great memories of earlier years playing pool and we were able to get a few games in as well as Air Hockey. Cory even had fishing poles available if Dad hadn't brought his own. (Stream next to Fish Hatchery allows up to 5 fish per person - license required) The weather was great during our stay and the fans & AC really helped. We would like to return in the winter months and enjoy the beautiful fireplace in the living room. TV & Wi-Fi also available although we 'unplugged' from the outside world to enjoy the beauty around us. Centrally located so we could make day trips out to Rainbow Pools, Yosemite, Hetch Hetchy, Sonora, Jamestown & Columbia, the Fish Hatchery down Priest Grade at Moccasin, checking out all the areas in Pine Mountain Lake (Fisherman's Cove, The Grill, Dunn Beach & more) and great spots off the highway to also check out. We always enjoy a good dinner at Cocina Michoacana in town, never disappoints. We have stayed in many VRBO homes in the past and a few up in PML and have had different experiences each time. This was another great experience and Cory was helpful from the beginning and with follow up. We would highly recommend this home to others. Two things we would have liked to have known prior to reaching the home: *Bring paper products & condiments- there is a nearby store with reasonable prices but good to know before you reach the house. (Some places have loads of these items, others not so much) *Construction on a new home across the way was a bit noisy in the front and the deck faces towards Ferretti Road which also can have loud traffic at different times. Once inside the house, you won't hear the noise though.

                    We stayed here as a party of six (including 2 teenagers) at the end of July 2011. The house is huge with plenty of comfotable spaces, both inside and outside, to sit and relax. We used the house as a base for excursions into Yosemite National Park and we're so glad we decided to stay here rather than in the park itself with all the crowds. It really takes a good hour to get from Groveland to places like Yosemite village but it's great to come back and relax on the deck with a cool drink. We came straight out to Groveland after flying out from the UK to San Francisco and on the way we wondered whether we would be able to buy groceries when we got there. We needn't have worried as the store in Groveland is well stocked with a wide range of fresh food and seems to be open early until late. The kitchen at Journeys End is equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook a full gourmet meal so we ate magnificently every night.

                    This property is amazing! We rented it for a New Year`s celebration. It is actually better than it looks on the pictures. It`s pretty spacious, but cozy. The owner is very nice. You`ll find a game room with billiards and air hockey. Do visit Yosemite, it is an unforgettable experience. Enjoy the peaceful nature and feel a spirit of Indians, who lived here a while ago.

                    We stayed here 3 nights while visiting Yosemite. The house is huge and had everything we needed. Our only regret was that we didn't have enough time to spend at the house. By the time we got back each night from hiking we only had time to hit the jacuzzi tub and fall into the comfy bed. If we ever get back to the area, we'll be staying here again. The owner is great to work with and our deposit was returned promptly. You won't be dissappointed with Journey's End!
