Property description

Visit our website to see our complete property including 4 other houses (all listed on VRBO): Hetch Hetchy House-#243066, River House-#177137, Sun House-#178031, and the Chaw'se House-#312025

Our signature studio has a queen size bed, kitchenette, bell tower and custom arched wooden windows and doors.

Picture windows overlook green lawns with a pool, hot tub and gardens.

A flat screen TV and DVD player with DVD library will keep you entertained after you grill up dinner on the BBQ( each house their own BBQ).

After dinner, take a stroll around the gardens which are decorated with a smiling tiki totem and meditation house.

This stone cottage has a beautiful wood interior and travertine floors, a vaulted ceiling w/fan and air conditioning. It is the home of the original spinning wheel and artful marble carving "Tuolumne Man". You also get the exclusive use of the brand new detached cottage bath with built in heater, large bath tub, travertine floors and a granite vanity with double sinks.

In addition we have large gardens and lawns to play games and explore not to mention that we are in the middle of national forest so there is quite a bit of hiking that can be done right here at Spinning Wheel Yosemite. The Tuolumne river is also just 100 yards away and is great for fishing and swimming.

You might not be surprised but we feel we must let you know, the internet is not a feature that we boast about out here. Being tucked away in the National Forest internet access is technically available, but it is limited, unreliable, and slow (and when we say slow we mean very slow). Basically you can check you email at our airstream business center.

So come on out, relax, read a book, watch a movie, play some games, look for the wild life and unwind at Spinning Wheel Yosemite!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: The Barsotti family begin vacationing at Spinning Wheel well before 1982. In 1982 when presented with the opportunity to purchase Spinning Wheel, there was no hesitation. Because of their love for the area they crafted a place where others could come and vacation as well. In 2013 Dharma and Eliote took over the property and are now the owners of Spinning Wheel Yosemite. Spinning Wheel Yosemite experienced a big forest fire in 2013 and as a result we had to rebuild this home. It's now a brand new vacation home with all the amenities of modern living while still in a beautiful forest environment.

Why the Owner Chose Groveland, CA, USA:
Unlike many other vacation properties in the area Spinning Wheel Yosemite offers a very private experience, being in the middle of national forest with no other neighbors for several miles. Each Home (there are 5 in total) is located far enough away from the other where you can feel both connected (if you are renting multiple properties) or private (if you are using one house). Many people come and enjoy staying on the property so much (hiking, BBQing, swimming, lounging by the river and pool, etc...) that they are happy to stay right here. And yes Spinning Wheel Yosemite is just a short drive to the Western entrance to Yosemite making it the perfect getaway just outside of the park.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The middle fork of the Tuolumne River runs through the property and holds a special place in our hearts. In the summer it provides a wonderful place to lounge and beat the summer heat. Not to mention the great fishing! And we are very secluded so no crowds or noise from the outside world The homes have been individually crafted up to the last detail. Stones were hand selected and placed on many of the cabins and each one has a story. Much of the art within the cabins and on the property is made by one of the Barsotti's. Which helps to make Spinning Wheel Yosemite feel like a comfortable "home away from home" get away.
