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.

Joe and Char were such great innkeepers! We loved getting to know them and hearing Joe's stories about Vietnam. The house itself was spectacular and gorgeous. The rooms were very clean and cutely decorated. Breakfast was delicious! We will be coming back for sure!

We stayed in Karla's room downstairs, enjoyed a luxurious bubble bath after a long day of touring the local sights, Joe and Char are just absolutely wonderful, make you feel like you are at a home away from home! We loved our time at the inn, cannot wait to stay again, will never stay anywhere else if we come out that way again, it was a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE, and Joe's breakfast is by far the best in town!

This place is a bit hidden, which makes it all the more worth going to. The owners are super nice and have built a truly wonderful house in the midst of trees with a definite flair for aviation. If you are a pilot, you'll feel at home right away. Don't know yet when I'll be back in the area, but will definitely try to stay here again. Yosemite Valley is about an hours drive away, but unless you camp in the valley, there are not many options that get you closer anyway, and this is definitely nicer than the 'barracks' a bit closer to the park.

The Cub Inn is a GREAT retreat and Joe Riley and Charleen Beam are wonderful hosts. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and relaxing. A Home away from Home and the hustle of the city. We would recommend "The Cub Inn" to anyone!!!
