Pinecrest Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2BR Mountainview Vacation Rental Pinecrest, California USA

Located in the high Sierra community of Peter Pam, near Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge ski area, at an elevation of 5,500 feet, this spacious two-bedroom-plus-loft/two-bath mountain home, on property adjacent to Stanislaus National Forest, is the ideal family getaway. Twenty-four foot cathedral ceilings and picture windows provide a beautiful view of the mountains.

The fully-equipped kitchen includes a commercial Wolf cooktop for serious cooks, along with a microwave, blender, coffee maker, coffee grinder, dishwasher, and a generous collection of pots, pans, and utensils. The large downstairs playroom features a tournament-size, heavy-duty slate pool table. The roomy upper deck offers a table, chairs, and an umbrella, as well as a barbecue for outdoor cooking. The large double garage and level car-length driveway provide easy access and ample parking.

Escape the heat in the summer, or enjoy the snow and winter sports. Travel to nearby Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, or the Eastern Sierra.

Hike many miles of scenic trails; go on nature walks with a trained naturalist from the Summit ranger station; take advantage of excellent stream and lake fishing; rent a canoe, paddle-boat, rowboat or small outboard at the Pinecrest marina; or watch movies in the evening at the outdoor amphitheater.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time at your cabin and a lovely time in the mountains. I have been going to the Pinecrest area for many years, and each year we return I love it just as much as the first time. Your cabin was lovely, and we so enjoyed ourselves, my niece said she wished that she could live there forever!

Wonderful experiance

  • 5 of 5
My family and I are repeat renters and would like to thank Bob and Carolyn for sharing their peaceful mountain cabin (home) with us. It is nestled in the forest in a relaxed and comfortable setting.
Everything was exactly as advertised.
The cabin is big yet cozy with a generous deck (on it a large umbrella shaded table and huge barbeque), living room (with a big screen TV, stereo and wood burning stove) and enormous recreation room downstairs (complete with regulation pool table and it's own deck). Upstairs there is a roomy and airy loft with 4 beds, more open space and it's own bathroom. There is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy different activities at the same time.
The cabin has an enclosed two car garage for security and convenience.
The kitchen is very well equipped for any size meal and type of cooking. We found nothing lacking.
Water recreation at Pinecrest Lake and winter sports at Dodge Ridge are minutes away. Hiking and many other outdoor activities in the forest and wilderness are close by.
We found that one of the most pleasant surprises was the wonder of the night sky with an upside down bowl full of brilliant stars that we don't normally see.
Our experiance has been that this is a quiet, serene and centrally located setting for a pleasant summer or winter vacation.
We look forward to renting the Miller cabin many times in the future.
Chuck, Joan and family.

Great winter cabin

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 6 days at this great cabin in a small, quiet community in the trees. We highly recommend this cabin. It was cozy with the wood stove and the satellite dish and new TV after hiking all day. The kitchen was clean and a pleasure to cook in, as was the cabin and offered everything we needed. There is plenty of room for big family groups and the garage for our car was a luxury in the cold weather. The owners could not have been nicer and made the process of rental and paperwork a pleasure. We hope to come back.

Nice Cabin, needs garbage service!

  • 4 of 5
This is a very nice cabin. It is clean, accessible, and very well-equipped. We enjoyed the nice kitchen, ample sleeping facilities, and especially the spacious game room, which we used quite a bit since there was no snow and hence no skiing.

There is one HUGE drawback to this cabin, however, that I must mention - there is no garbage service. With seven guests, two gourmet cooks, and 3 days, we naturally generated two huge bags of kitchen trash and it was our responsibility to find a place to dump them. This turned out to be a royal pain. Not only did we not have the space in the car to haul it all the way back home, but it is simply not hygienic and I refuse to to do so.

In fairness, this drawback was mentioned in the rental agreement, but in that agreement it also said we could take our trash to the Pinecrest transfer station. Well, I tried to do this, but it was closed! So I had to spend over an hour driving up and down HWY 108 like an idiot looking for someone who would take my two bags. In the end I pleaded with a really nice guy who let me dump them in his bin. What a miserable way to spend my final few hours at the cabin!

And it's not like there's no waste service in the neighborhood - we saw trucks collecting trash. It's just that the owners are trying to save a buck. I'd gladly pay a higher rent to offset the cost so I can spend my time relaxing instead of stressing about where to dump my garbage. I love Pinecrest and I will return again this year. I would love to visit this cabin again, but I won't do so unless they address this deal-breaking inconvenience.

Owner's Response: We suggest our renters take garbage to Waste Management in Sonora, open weekdays, and suggest the Pinecrest Transfer Station as a possible alternative Friday through Monday. We provide service times in our cabin information letter. We don't have garbage pickup because the cabin is often unoccupied for extended periods. Garbage cans left out on the street for days can be problematic, especially during the winter when there's a lot of snow. Along with the beauty of the remote high Sierras comes some sacrifice. Our system is a common one for rentals in the area. (We take our garbage home.)

We appreciate this person's fairness and complimentary remarks about our house, but we wish he had contacted us. We encourage our guests to call us (at our expense) with any problems they may have.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin in lieu of our annual tent camping trip and we may never go back to the tent!. The cabin is in a quiet neighborhood in the pines with a lovely view over the forest and to some nearby mountains. The deck is great and the neighbors are barely visible. Inside the cabin is clean and extremely well furnished (I'm still not sure what some of the cooking gear is used for!). There's a new tv with an amazing surround system so bring some movies for the evening. The owners were great and everything was just as advertised and as they said it would be. We'll definitely be coming back.

Pinecrest Lake

Located in the spectacular Sierra Nevada at an elevation of about 5,500 feet, the Pinecrest area offers summer swimming, boating and hiking and winter sledding and skiing at Dodge Ridge. The area's many nature hikes and drives include those to the Columns of the Giants geologic site, which covers the remains of a glacier from the last ice age, and the Bennet Tree, world's largest western juniper. Below in the foothills is the historic California gold country, highlighted by Columbia State Park, a restored goldrush town, and Jamestown's Railtown 1897. It's also fun to browse Jamestown's antique district. Yosemite National Park's Big Oak Flat entrance is a little over an hour away.

This beautiful and secluded area is a great choice for a family vacation.
