Historic Hotel in Groveland, CA


Originally an adobe trading post built in 1849, The Groveland Hotel has had many incarnations over its 163 years – Gambling House, Saloon, Hotel, Ranger Station, business offices, and even a Greyhound Bus Stop. It was known as “the best house on the hill” during the Gold Rush, and the hotel in Groveland, California may be the only Sierra Nevada Mountain building constructed in the Monterey Adobe architectural style that was popular during the late 1840s and 1850s.


We purchased The Groveland Hotel in June 2017, but are definitely not strangers to the hospitality industry and are excited to embark in our second hotel transformation. In 2012, we purchased the Hotel Charlotte, located across the street from The Groveland Hotel. Doug is a well-known chef and has vast experience from managing a variety of restaurants to cheffing on private yachts. Jenn has extensive knowledge in business management and marketing and she hopes to provide guests a quality and comfortable stay as we complete the property renovations in the winter of 2018. When you stay with us, you are also likely to meet our two boys, Porter and Alden.  We are hoteliers for two reasons – to provide an excellent experience for you all, our guests, and to be able to spend time with our boys.

Safe travels and we look forward to hosting you!
