We have three dogs; Cubby, Reggie and Avery. They are all very friendly and love our guests. However, if you are allergic to dogs, it might be better for you to find another property for your stay at Yosemite. There are numerous deer that live close to the property and visit us regularly. Also seen are wild turkeys and long-eared rabbits. We have a very large deck with furniture for lounging, relaxing, observing the animals, having a meal or snack and meeting our other guests. We are happy if all guests consider this their home when staying here.. The Inn is a 5000 square feet log cabin sitting on three acres of forest. We are in a small village. Downtown is walking distance away where a market and a few eating establishments are located. It is important to note that almost everything closes by 2100 and most are closed on Monday. We know the best places to recommend and are happy to do so. . While there are no TV's in the rooms by design, all guests are welcome in the great room where satellite TV is on most of the time.
The Cub Inn opened in April 2009, I am Joe Riley a retired mechanical engineer and a commercial-rated pilot who has flown for many years, both in the military and as a private citizen. Ask me some time about my helicopter experiences in Vietnam. My dream was to build a log cabin and turn it into a Bed & Breakfast. I wanted to offer something unique – not just your typical B&B! My mission was to create an informal atmosphere in which guests would feel comfortable enough to put their feet on the furniture – as if they were in their own home- and take in the beautiful nature and peacefulness that surrounds our three-acre setting.
Groveland offers a unique small town environment that dates back to the Gold Rush days. The Iron Door saloon dates back to 1847,and is a must-see. There are hiking/camping supply stores, hardware, grocery and thrift stores to explore. If you want to ride horses there is a stable very close to the Cub Inn. Located in the 'hard rock mining' district of The Mother Lode country (where gold was discovered in 1848), this township is definitely 'alpine' in nature but, at 3000' msl elevation, avoids permanent snow pack in winter. There are numerous hiking trails available from town right up to Yosemite National Park 24 miles (1/2 hour drive) away There are several restaurants near the Cub Inn.
