... nehmen, bis wir wieder zur 395 gelangten. Dach fuhren wir bis Litte Vining, wo wir tankten. Danach ging es einige Meilen zurück, bis wir in die 120 in den Yosemite National Park einbogen. Diese führte uns in den Park, zu verschiedenen Aussichtspunkten und schlussendlich zum Ziel, der Yosemite Lodge. Das Checkin für unsere Zimmer war schlimm, für sechs Zimmer benötigte die Dame an der Reception eine geschlagene Stunde! Da ...
... park (one not so straight road) and to the stables, where we would spend the next 4 hours not covered by our travel insurance and in a fluctuating state of western excitement and sheer panic. I’m proud to say we climbed 2,000 ft, on horse (well mule) back where we were rewarded with stunning views of Nevada Falls, a pleasant surprise when it looked like me, and my furry friend 'Uno’ would not make it further than the car park. A ...
... 8211; reached via Tioga Road – is only accessible in the summer months. After Milly's laboured grind up the never-ending climbs, it's clear why. Tioga Pass itself sits at 9954 feet (3031 metres) with our destination of Tuolomne Meadows resting at 8575 feet (2614 metres) – not an area I'd be keen to plow in the depths of winter... The +/- 85 mile return journey from our camping spot in Hodgson Meadows offered scenery of forests, lakes, granite domes and expansive ...

The Giant Sequoia is a huge tree that towers over all the other trees and they can live for over two thousand years with trunks that can reach over 25 feet thick, and with limbs that can be a large as the trunks of the average pine tree. For reasons not fully understood these trees are not subject ...
... site had become available for the next two nights at the Upper Pines campground!! Total fluke. So we quickly snapped that up and then planned our trip to Yosemite.
All the roads from Tahoe to Yosemite we over big high bypasses that we were lucky had opened as they close over winter and most of spring. We chose Ebbets Pass and Betsy climbed up 8730ft through massive mountains and at the top there was still a lot of snow and couple ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Charlotte Groveland
Unpretentious, 5 star cuisine & European style
A little bit of European B&B style right outside Yosemite! Love it! The common spaces: upstairs porch overlooking Main Street, and the 'family room', complete with computer, piano & comfy furniture, are great for getting that homey feeling away from home and meeting some people you wouldn't meet at impersonal hotels & motels. And the food! I'm still thinking about Victor's special dinner dishes, as well as the morning pancakes!
Lots to do nearby. I'll be back for a raft trip!
Reasonably priced for Yosemite area, but some problems
The hotel is casual and comfortable, and located within walking distance of several restaurant, although all close early. They also offer free internet access and a tv room full of games and puzzles. There is a second story front porch facing on to the street, but it was furnished with old outdoor furniture and benches, and littered with full ashtrays, so it wasn't very inviting. Our room was extremly small, but sunny. It was decorated with antiques, and the sheets were nice. Our bathroom was fairly sizeable but the door to it didn't shut all the way, and it was not very clean. Breakfast, which includes cereal, bread for toasting, juice, coffee and pancakes (which were not fully cooked during our stay), is fair. The staff, though generally available, seemed uninterested in dealing with guests.
What a gem
The Hotel Charolette is a gem. The 3 of us women, part of the "Extravaganzas", shared a comfortable room downstairs.
It was a great respite before and after our full day off rafting the Tuolumne River. My favorite part, besides the humor and good care we received from owner Lynn, was sitting upstairs on the veranda, sipping a beverage and watching the world go by. I can't wait to visit again and don a straw hat for an evening in Groveland.
Crab Cakes & Bob
In May 2004, our daughter married a local, and my wife and I and another family member, spent 5 days, at "The Charlotte." The hosts, Lynn & Victor let us into their lives, and even awarded me the prized position of honorary quadruped. The call him "Bob, the Hotel Dog, but he and I both know that he is human. He and I kissed each morning, and discussed the previous day's activities. Lynn, Victor, are consummate hosts; they let you, the guest, define the relationship. They (including Bob) are never intrusive, but answer your every need. Victor is an excellent chef. With som reservation, I ordered Crab Cakes one evening. In wandering the globe, I have never eaten finer Crab Cakes. The best hotel experience of my 74 years.
The Hotel Charlotte is the friendliest place we have ever stayed.
Dinner rated up there with the finest French Chefs. I had the blackend salmon with cucumber salsa and it was out of this world! My wife had a delicious veal imperial. Our room was small, but warm and bright, just right. Our bathroom on the other hand was very large. Highly recommend.
The Hotel Charlotte was a terrific find on our way to Yosemite. Much cheaper than the Groveland hotel, the Charlotte has clean, comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast included in the rate. The restaurant is out of this world!
This was our 2nd time at the Hotel Charlotte in 5 years. The hotel is under new management, and it looks and feels like a new place. The management is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the restaurant next to it is terrific. It's a great buy for the money! D & D
A small hotel managed by owner, the Charlotte has very small rooms and is not well maintained. The continental breakfast is good, though. The bathtubs may have a charming old-fashioned look but they're not convenient for seniors.
Cute and Convenient
The hotel Charlotte broke our trip up nicely when we were going to Yosemite. We got to Groveland at noon, then spent the rest of the day in Groveland, and got into Yosemite the next morning by 8:00 after a quick breakfast at the hotel. Rooms are simple and clean. Ruth was very pleasant.
