Things to do:
Our chalet is in a gated community with a golf course, seasonal heated swimming pool (May-October), the lake's three swimming beaches that get really warm to swim in summer, hiking trails near by, tennis courts, and much more. I can advise on many possible day activities and places to go at different times of the year. Yosemite Park entrance is just 25 miles away, but there are many other attractions in the vicinity. Historical Gold Rush towns, multiple caves, Tuolumne river canyon, mountain lakes, white water rafting are just the first things that come to my mind. Wintertime, you can snowshoe and cross country ski at Yosemite. Downhill skiing/snowboarding is possible with a little over an hour drive to either Dodge Ridge or Yosemite's Badger Pass ski resorts. For the little ones there are FREE "adventures" near by, like a 5min drive to airport to see airplanes take off and land, horse stables to touch a horse's nose, 3min drive to playground with a slide, swings, and sandbox, or feeding trout at Moccasin Creek Hatchery (think of it as your free aquarium, just 15min drive away :) Kids 5 and under ride free in Railtown 1897 steam train found in Jamestown, a 25 min drive away from our home. During summer youngsters enjoy around-the-lake water taxi rides. Seeing Milky Way behind countless stars on a moonless night is captivating. There's plenty to see and do for folks of all ages no matter the season!
