The Cub Inn B&B is the newest B&B in Groveland CA. Built entirely of 8" dia. Swedish Cope Pine Logs on 3 quiet, alpine forested acres, near town but far from civilization, our home and B&B was completed and opened April 2009. Using true Post and Beam Log Home design, the three 14" dia. X 48' long Purlins supporting the roof soar over 27 feet above the Great Room floor. Authentic nine foot raftered beam ceilings are found on both the first and second floors. Facing North, the Glass Windowed Prow looks thru a dense alpine forest toward the mountains beyond. Not far from town, but away from the noise of Highway 120, this setting offers a quiet, tranquil wooded retreat where you can truly relax and enjoy nature at its finest.

"The Cub Inn Bed & Breakfast is a quiet but magical retreat into the beautiful Sierras. We received a very warm welcome from Joe, the innkeeper, who treated us like family during our stay. The property is within 30-45 minute drive of Yosemite Valley floor, and just far enough from the valley to provide a peaceful space away from the crowds. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts, giant fireplace and most of all Joe's adorable bull terrier named Cubby. A wonderful place to escape and get some rest & relaxation!"

Myself and my partner Paul had a one night stay at the wonderful Cub Inn, which was a great introduction to our travels through Yosemite and Death Valley. Joe and Cubby (the really friendly bull terrier) welcomed us, and later we met the equally accommodating Charleen. Very friendly atmosphere from the hosts, in a great woodland house, surrounded by inquisitive deer. We had Char's room on the ground floor which was perfect and comfortable. Joe lent us a flashlight and a stick to beat off the mountain lions on our way into town to get some grub (i suspect he was just trying to make out jaunt a little more adventurous - us English need some excitement in our lives). We got up for an early start but Joe persuaded us to stay for a very hearty breakfast of pancakes, egg, bacon, sausage and more. We're glad we did as it set us up for the day. A good homely retreat like this did seem a bit far and few between on our travels so definitely a great place to stay! Thanks Joe and Charleen!

Joe was a great host and very thoughtful and accomodating. Our stay was so comfortable and a retreat from our weariness about other traveling challenges. It felt like a home away from home in a fantastic log home with all the comforts and welcoming amenities. The setting and the home built for guests was just outstanding! Thanks Joe

We spent a very pleasant 2 nights at the Cub Inn. Joe was a fun and gracious host and prepared hardy breakfasts each morning. Getting to see deer from our bedroom window was a real treat!!!
