Recent Groveland reviews
"We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. We had 4 adults and 2 children (2&7) and the house was very roomy, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well equipped for a family to cook a large meal, the laundry room was a big plus as well as toys available for our kids to play with. The town of Groveland is within a short driving distance. We enjoyed strolling thru the historic downtown area and visited the well stocked grocery store multiple times during our stay. We look forward to another stay at this wonderful house in the near future."

"My family and I have stayed in VBRO rentals before and this one had everything you could ask for. The house was very clean when we arrived and was well stocked. I felt like I was at home . The location was not bad for our days at Yosemite. We enjoyed the deer every morning and evening. Sitting on the deck in the evening was so quiet and peaceful and the stars were AWESOME. We would highly recommend this place for your Yosemite visit. The owners John and Shirley were very easy to work with."

"Very spacious house. Incredibly comfortable and clean. Martina, the owner is a very accommodating lady and ensured that our stay was care-free. We were able to barbecue and eat dinner outside on the very nice upper deck, which was extremely private.
There are laundry facilities at the home and detergent was furnished. One of the best features, downstairs in the finished basement (with full bath) was a ping-pong table! Yes, this was part of our nightly entertainment and very enjoyable after a full day in Yosemite - an EASY 30 min. drive to the park entrance.
Cons (very minor):
- the complex charges you $20 for your stay for "use of facilities" associated with the lake, etc. Frankly, I paid extra for beach rental equip and for dining at their "premier" restaurant at the golf club. So, I'm not really sure why they levy this fee. No, it's not much, but, if you extend your stay at another property in this complex, you will have to pay the $20 again. Seems bogus, but what do I know? All in all, the price of this property is a bargain and the area is quite beautiful.
If you are looking for fine dining, forget about it. The area is relatively bereft of choices. Steer clear of Buck Meadows restaurant, approx 10 mi. away on the road to Yosemite. You are way better off cooking at home. That said, the Groveland Inn had some pretty decent food, although both of my initial choices were sold out. But the food was quite good there, in spite of that.
There is an area market that is well-stocked. Don't buy beef there - it is very tough. Instead, take a drive to Sonora - a good-sized town with numerous restaurants and large grocery store(s).
All in all, this stay was worth every penny! My GF concurs. A better value you won't find. Don't even bother booking a hotel! Compared with a VRBO property like this, there is NO comparison!
Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Martina!"

"This home was a great weekend vacation for my family! After spending many hours at the lake and around Groveland, it was great coming back to this spacious home to play some pool table and ping pong. The community was really welcoming and we would highly recommend this quiet and clean home!"
