John & Diane live in Los Altos, CA where they raised their three boys. Diane grew up on a lake in Northern Michigan, John on a river front home in Northern Illinois. Both love the peace and relaxation of a lake setting.
Lake of the Pines is one of the last private lake communities to be built in California. Diane & John chose this home because of it's quiet setting the lake's most beautiful cove, and the large lawn and decks for their family and others to gather. John & Diane bought Tranquility Cove in 2001.
Great views, relaxing, tons of room and many places to gather for a family reunion or off-site meeting.

Overlooking Lake of the Pines is DarkHorse Golf Course (open to public) - one of the finest courses built in Northern California in many years. The course was laid out on what was once a 1,100-acre cattle ranch and features magnificent elevation changes. But there is much more than that for those who truly love golf. Holes were gently placed into the curving valleys on the site; the greens are subtly contoured; the bunkers are strategically placed and offer a variety of different shot making opportunities. Course Designer Keith Foster has crafted 18 unique holes that will leave you anxious to play DarkHorse again.
