Car: Necessary

La Grange is a small unincorporated community in rural Stanislaus County California. It is located along the Tuolumne River where French miners struck gold in 1852. Aside from its French population, the community included a significant Chinatown in its early years. At its height, the community had thousands of residents, but it was a largely lawless town. La Grange is now a registered California Historical Landmark district. Today a post office and elementary school still operate in La Grange. Also functioning is the oldest church in Stanislaus County, St. Louis Roman Catholic Church with a cemetery containing tombstones dating to the mid-1800s. Fishing and boating: There are five reservoirs within 30 minutes of the Pond House. Lake Don Pedro is the closest, about 10 minutes to the boat launch. Lake McClure is about 25 minutes. Other close by lakes include, Turlock Lake State Park and Tulloch Lake. Boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing are the major activities. Sightseeing: Yosemite National Park. Travel the John Muir historic Yosemite Trail (hwy 132) Yosemite Blvd thru the gold country towns of La Grange and Coulterville then on to the Yosemite National Park north gate. Travel time 1 1/2 hours. Historic gold country towns: Visit close by La Grange,Coulterville, Jamestown, Sonora, and Columbia State Park- all less than a 45 minutes drive. Relaxing: Stay home and enjoy the property. You may fish in the lake or the river. There is a peddle boat for your use on the pond and a nice dock area for viewing or relax in the shade next to the creek and read a book. Dining out: Louie's Place (Historic Saloon in La Grange ) built in 1897 is open 6 days a week and serves great prime rib and steak dinners, a must stop for dining out. Not into restaurant food? No problem! Pond House has a expansive and fully equipped kitchen and dining room. Dine outdoors during the warmer summer season and enjoy the park like setting and excellent views. There's a wealth of fun activities to enjoy when staying at La Grange Pond House. Bring your gold pan, family and/or friends and plan to stay awhile so that you can experience the wide variety of what this area has to offer.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Cathy and I purchased this property in 2009 after spending over a year looking for just the right get away. Upon arriving and seeing the property for the first time we knew that this was the spot

Why the Owner Chose La Grange, CA, USA:
Cathy and I purchased this property in 2009 after spending over a year looking for just the right get away. Upon arriving and seeing the property for the first time we knew that this was the spot. The realtor had given us the gate code and told us to drive up and take a look. As we drove thru the gate there were deer standing in the yard. I noticed the pond was spring fed and the river was right next door. The home was impressive and in great shape. The next day we contacted the real estate agent and we were able to enter the home. Impressive, everything we were looking for. Two years latter we were able to buy the vacation rental at the other end of the pond. This home is located in a park like setting with over an acre of lawn area, private dock, river access and picnic area. You will love it

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are looking for a private get away this is the place. The property sits behind a private gated entry along the Tuolumne river with a large 3 acre pond. The home is spacious and well maintained. It is a beautiful property with a year around creek running through the back yard. The front yard has a large lawn area providing a park like setting and pathway leading to pond. This is a great place to relax after a day at one of the five close by reservoirs or day trips to the gold country or Yosemite National Park.
