I made my reservation for Thursday night on Monday night over the internet. The price was right. Check in is 4pm which worked perfectly for me. I arrived about 10:00am and went for a bike ride up to Grants Grove Village and back in the 90F heat. Got back at 4:30, check-in was easy and fast. The desk personnel are helpful and nice. The 'Cedar Grove Village' consists of this single 2 story building. Ground floor had the store and front desk on the front, the snack bar and deck on the back. 18 rooms on the top floor with a nice deck overlooking the Kings River. The room was fine. The beds very comfortable. The air conditioning was very much appreciated.
The patio rooms were under the ground floor.
The snack bar was better than I expected, and I took Dinner, Breakfast, and Lunch there. Dinner was fried trout with baked potato, grilled vegetables, and I got cream of asparagus soup, which after my ride was very welcom.
The clerk in the store was very helpful, and I discovered that for $1.43 out the door, you can buy a premium ice cold beer. General Sherman IPA was a local brew, that I selected from the many choices.
I woke up rested an refreshed at 7:20 am and had a nice breakfast with 2 eggs, sausage and cottage fries. very tasty. Checked out and drove to Roads End by 9:30 for a nice hike to Mist Falls. Saw 3 cubs and caught a glimpse of Mama bear on the trail as shed was shredding a log.
Had the trail pretty much to myself.
Lots more people as I came back. Got back to the car at 1pm and drove to Cedar Grove for a nice lunch.
