'Gendle Manor' is such a charming house that we didn't feel like leaving. It is beautifully located among the farmlands in Central Valley with tons of space around. The kids and adults in our big gang had a blast with the commercial size swimming pool and hot tub, and having space to play football (both kinds), cricket, etc, etc. There isn't much around the town Escalon to go and see unless you decide to drive to Yosemite; so if you are content to stay home, enjoy the sorroundings, and utilize the tremedous resources available at home, you will have a fantastic time. Last but not the least, the owner Belinda is a pleasure to work with. Anytime I send her an email or text, she would respond within an hour. She was also very accomodating for any request we had. Overall, we had such a wonderful and memorable experience at Belinda's country home, that we didn't want to leave.
