Are dining facilities available?
Yes, besides the expansive included breakfast we have a restaurant, Cafe Charlotte serving favorites Thursday-Sunday evenings from 5:30 on. Besides our regular menu nights, the restaurant plays host to many events throughout the year from Wine-dinners with our Sommelier of the night, Nicole Darracq to Cabaret Nights, Gala events for the local theater, Murder Mysteries and more.

Victor and I take a recipe research trip each year with cooking classes in new food genres and bring these ideas home. For two years we have offered Thai Thursdays in the winters. Victor has brought exotic meats to the menu from Boar to Ostrich we are always trying something new here and folks have come to expect the unexpected. Everything is homemade with the freshest ingredients, locally purchase whenever possible. Victor has trained in preparing tasty foods for vegans and vegetarians and can adapt almost any dish to special dietary requirements. Special orders don’t upset us.. (to steal a slogan) we enjoy serving to your needs.

What other amenities are available?
We hire Yosemite Experts to run our front desk and breakfast providing guests with recommendations for their trip that meet their needs, whether energetic and athletic hikers or stroller bound parents. The Hotel Dog, Goose, is Groveland’s Honorary Deputy Mayor (that means he came in second place) We offer guests a fun and memorable experience.

What makes your business special? (Proximity to park, fine dining, shuttles into the park, in-house guide service)
It is the people they will meet here that make us special. We all know our subject, Yosemite, very well and have a passion for sharing with our guests. Customer service is our greatest objective. No request is ever met with a “no.”

We make it our business to know what there is to do in the area, where the happenings are, how to get to the next stop and what to see along the way. We have traveled the roads, stayed in the inns and tried the foods along the way, which ever way you are going. We take the time to put all of our travels on the website with local activities from Birdwatching to Casino recommendations to day trips to the Murphys wine region, Columbia State Park, Rainbow Pools and more. Our events calendar includes activities with a diverse set of interests from as far away as an hour and a half (what we think of as day trip distance)


We stayed at Hotel Charlotte in Groveland this summer for a couple of days. The hotel was very quaint, homey and comfortable. It was clean, the service excellent and a real value at $108 per night. Plus, we got a hearty breakfast every morning, complimentary. There were a few good places to eat for dinner in the little town. ~Sandy
