About the Property

Studio apartment, Kitchenette, Sleeps 2-4, Fenced yard, Gas BBQ, boat parking.

Our cabin style, pet-friendly hideaway is nestled in the foothills between Don Pedro Lake and Lake McClure in the Sierra Foothills. It's forty five minutes from our guest house to the Big Oak Flat Entrance of Yosemite National Park. We love the panoramic views that can be seen from Hwy 132 and Hwy 120 on the way to Yosemite. Plan to visit Hetch Hetchy which John Muir described as more beautiful than Yosemite Valley. A short 5 to 10 minute drive from the Hide Away you can spend a relaxing day of fishing, swimming, skiing, and boating on two lakes. Or drive 15 to 35 minutes to tour the historic gold rush towns of Coulterville, Jamestown, Sonora, and Columbia.
The spacious studio features a queen size bed, kitchenette, dining table, comfy couch, satellite TV, WiFi and private patio with a gas BBQ. An additional queen size AeroBed or child size AeroBed can be set up by request. A fully fenced yard gives you the flexibility to safely leave your pet at the Hide Away, while you tour Yosemite and surrounding historic towns in Gold Country.

Why camp when you can stay in a cozy guest cabin? Our guest house is 5 minutes from the Fleming Meadows boat ramp at Lake Don Pedro. You can ski or fish all day and then come back to the Hide Away to BBQ and relax for the evening. And you can safely park your boat right outside the guest house.

Yosemite is an easy day trip away. Take a picnic, hiking boots and your camera to make your own special memories in Yosemite. Or take a day trip to the historic gold mining town of Columbia to experience life in the 1840's. Jamestown and Sonora boast historical downtowns filled with antique shops, restaurants and cultural displays. Lake Don Pedro is 2 hours from San Francisco and an hour and a half from Sacramento. Once your arrive we will share more points of interest that you may enjoy.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We have lived at Lake Don Pedro since 1989. The promise of country living brought us here from the Los Angeles area. Our son grew up climbing trees, hiking to the lake and building forts. Friends who visit us call our life style "resort living." We enjoy coffee on our deck in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening watching the sunset. Our families thought we were crazy to move here….and then they all moved here too! I like to call it the wild west. Things are different here. The hills are rich in history and gold. Notorious bandits and criminals have passed through here or stayed to here to hide from the law. Whether you choose to put your feet up and take a break from a busy life style or explore our slice of heaven, we promise you a memorable vacation.

Why the Owner Chose La Grange, CA, USA:
Why stay in an impersonal hotel or camp in a tent when you can stay in a cozy guest cabin with most of the amenities of home. Our guest house is 5 minutes from the Fleming Meadows boat ramp at Lake Don Pedro. You can ski or fish all day and then come back to the Hide Away to BBQ and relax for the evening. And you can safely park your boat right outside the guest house. Yosemite is an easy drive from here. Take a picnic, hiking boots and your camera to make your own special memories in Yosemite. Or take a day trip to the historic gold mining town of Columbia to experience life in the 1840's. Jamestown and Sonora boast historical downtowns filled with antique shops, restaurants and cultural displays. Lake Don Pedro is 2 hours from San Francisco and an hour and a half from Sacramento. Once your arrive we will share more points of interest that you may enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We are hospitable hosts who live on the property. Your privacy and comfort is important to us. Our guest cabin is comfy and private. It is ideal for a couple, or we can comfortably accommodate a family of 4.
