"Escape By The Lake" as the name implies is a great retreat to experience Mother Nature without sacrificing any of life's modern conveniences. Its like camping with natures beauty out your window but with a comfy bed, fully stocked kitchen, game room, WI-FI, even Big Screen TVs. So whether your planning a family and/or friends vacation or just a getaway for 2, spending some quality time here will definitely recharge your batteries and leave your troubles behind. The rental is located just off the lake itself, just a 1/4-mile to the Lake Lodge Beach/Playground, Tennis Courts and Fishermans Cove/Playground within the PML resort. This very roomy cabin has extended living space on the back deck; great for family meals, entertaining or just kicking back, enjoying the view of majestic oaks, pines and filtered lake view. The open great room/dining/kitchen/deck layout really lends itself to entertaining and socializing. Thoughtfully decorated with a rustic, mountain-getaway-feeling in mind...log cabin decor is the theme...from the antler chandelier to real log furniture! The combination of resort amenities, great cabin feel, and proximity to area attractions should be everything you desire in spending your vacation time. You can take it easy around the house and see the sights per your own time schedule. Relax and enjoy what man and nature have provided, I know you won't leave unsatisfied.

Enjoyed it with familia
It was really nice and Mike was really friendly and nice. If I need something he will always help
Great vacation spot!
This rental was wonderful, location was ideal! The house had everything you could need or want. It was comfortable and roomy, lake views from the living room, kitchen and deck. The owner was very responsive and made sure we got all our questions answered. We'd definitely come back!
Relaxing at the Lake
Cute cabin by the lake. Plenty of room for me and my daughters including their families. Spent one day in Yosemite and the other two enjoying the lake and Groveland. Spent our final night at Ironstone Vineyards Ampitheatre taking in a Toby Kieth concert.
Great place close to lake
No wifi or phone service, but Mike (the owner) was great to work with me and contacted my family members to let them know how to contact the house. Kitchen has everthing you need to cook a meal. Nice view from the deck. We had a very nice stay.
Wifi will be installed shortly. There is local phone service available at the house. Long distance requires a calling card.
Very Beautiful Cabin
We spent 3 nights at "Escape By The Lake". Overall very good experience.
Cabin itself is very nice. The whole house is fully decorated with bears and fishing theme. You can find everything you need in the kitchen, including pots and pans, plates and cups. Nice wooden kitchen table. We enjoyed our dinner one time on the deck while watching sunset.
There's a game room downstairs with a pool table. Lots of kids games there as well. We had a good time.
There's a visitor pass ($27) required per vehicle in order to stay inside this gated resort.
The cabin is only a little bit more than 20 miles from the Yosemite National Park entrance.
We are a group of two families with 3 adults and 4 kids. This cabin can comfortably fit 10 people.
Mike gave us directions on how to get to the cabin before we started the trip there. He called twice during our stay at the cabin to make sure we had everything we need.
The only downside is no wifi there. But it's understandable. I strongly recommend this cabin.
Great times near Yosemite
This place was extremely unique. I took my wife and parents-in-law here for a weekend getaway near Yosemite. It certainly didn't disappoint. The decor was incredible and the proximity to the National Park was great. We went into Yosemite Valley one day, saw the amazing waterfalls of Spring 2017, then went into Hetch-Hetchy Valley the second day. To have been able to see the "twin valleys" like that (one dammed up and one left free) was very powerful. If you have time to see both valleys, please do so. You'll definitely be close enough if you stay at the "Escape by the Lake."
Perhaps the most interesting part of the trip was the strange "thunder hail" storm that we experienced. It was 75 all day long until at around 5pm, the clouds rolled in and the thunder and lightning started. But there wasn't rain! It was sleet and hail falling from the sky - definitely a first for all of us.
The owner was very responsive to all of my annoying texts and emails and had the courtesy to call us on the landline at his house (cell phones are very light on reception) just after we arrived and just before we were ready to leave. I appreciated this more than anything. He offered us thoughts on where to buy food and drink and suggested some particular places to explore in Yosemite.
So if you're looking for a nice place for a good price near John Muir's getaway, this place is it for you :-)
