About Joe Schmidt

Hi!

I purchased my cabin in 1997 and named it in honor of my Dad. I was born in Chicago, grew up in New Jersey and came to CA on a corporate promotion/transfer to Palo Alto in 1982. I was at a new com'er party and told a guy that I wanted to buy a cabin someday in CA and he said, 'look everywhere but buy in Pinecrest'. He was right! I purchased the cabin as a place my family could come and visit. Carol is in Pensacola and Tom is in Orlando. My dear sister, Joan, left us in June, 2003. All have been to the cabin at one time or another plus my three sons and many nieces and nephews. I retired early as a Human Resources Executive in 2000 and am now very involved in volunteering for organizations focused on social justice. It is quite rewarding.

I wish you well in your search for a nice cabin and can only offer the same advice ... look everywhere ... become a guest at Joseph's cabin!

Why Joe Schmidt chose Pinecrest

The Pinecrest Area came highly recommended to me shortly after I arrived in CA. I found a beautiful lake in the summer, a great winter sports area in the Winter and three wilderness areas to explore.

What makes this cabin unique

Whether it's summer or winter, I love to jump into the hot tub after a day of exercise. It's so relaxing. Joseph's cabin has so many different amenities to provide relaxation and interest. I also love sitting out on the deck with the quiet and forest embracing you all around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is always a pleasure for me to hear that my guests had a great time. It seems that this guest really enjoyed Joseph's cabin with all it amenities including the fully equipped kitchen and the hot tub in the cool evening air. Also, I am sure the WiFi helped them keep in touch with friends and family. But the best part is their intention to come back in the future.

Thanksgiving near Pinecrest

  • 4 of 5
My family and I decided to get away from it all this Thanksgiving. This home is just that, a comfy, lived-in home. For those who need space for a large family, or for those who want to get together with some friends for a ski weekend, this is great! Close to Dodge Ridge and Pinecrest Lake. The furnishings are homey rather than "hotel chic" so you can just snuggle in and enjoy a fire. We utilized the wi-fi (included). The kitchen has pretty much all you need to whip up a decent meal or some ooey-gooey cookies. We took advantage of the barbeque (round Weber), the range, toaster oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. Although I didn't need the washer, having a dryer was very helpful for wet towels. The towels provided are regular sized, so if you are used to over-sized towels, you may want to bring yours. I loved being on the side of a hill and the view is lovely from many levels. The stars are especially lovely when seen from the hot tub! There's a small grocery store, gas station and an A+ restaurant nearby. The owner gave very good instructions and directions and answered the phone when I had a question even though it was a holiday! Great customer service!

Family trip to Pinecrest

  • 5 of 5
My family has been coming to Pinecrest for years. We’ve rented through vrbo for 5 of those years. We love Joseph’s Cabin the most because it has a great floor plan for multiple families, kids or couples. It’s best if you’re flexible and can “share” a room with others, which is usually fine with large groups. We always have 4-6 kids and they are in the downstairs bonus room and they love having their own space (and bathroom).

The house is pretty big and the floor plan is perfect. It’s not a fancy house, but we are not going to Pinecrest for fancy. We are going to be together and unplug and BBQ and play charades in the evenings.

We love the location (only 4 miles from the lake) and the quiet neighborhood. The hot tub makes it - every day after spending hours at the lake we get in the hot tub before dinner. I’ve rented houses without a hot tub and will try to never do that again! You can BBQ on the deck and eat outside surrounded by trees. It’s really beautiful.

Joe is easy to work with, very kind and accommodating and we love going every year.

Our family vacation

  • 4 of 5
When we had young children we frequently camped at Pinecrest so when our son who now lives in PA was coming to CA for a vacation we decided to make it a family vacation. I am know longer interested in camping so we decided to rent a cabin. We had our 2 grown children with their spouses and children. The "guys" camped for 2 days at Pinecrest while the 2 children under 3 and the wives stayed at the cabin. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the cabin was large enough to for all of us. We enjoyed BBQs on the deck. We had a great time at the lake, even walked around the lake! It was close enough to Yosemite that we spend a day there as well as a day in Columbia. Those that had never been there were truly impressed with the beauty of the area.

Owner's Response: I am very glad that you returned to the Pinecrest area and this time had the pleasure of staying at Joseph's cabin. It's located in the perfect vacation spot, not too far from special places like Columbia or Sonora down the road and a very pleasant drive to our National Park, Yosemite. I hope that you come back many times again.

so close to beautiful pinecrest lake

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful family stay at Joseph's cabin and loved being so close to Pinecrest Lake. We had camped there for years and now are past our camping years but wanted the thrill of this area again for our kids and grandkids. This was the perfect spot with lots of room. The cabin is clean but not "fussy" and has a beautiful view from the back deck, good parking and is close to a convenient store. Joseph was easy to communicate with and getting there was easy.

Owner's Response: This party is no stranger to Pinecrest Lake and the surrounding area. But this time they chose to stay at Joseph's cabin instead of camping. It sounds like they really enjoyed it and I am glad to hear that.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
Josephs cabin is a great place to vacation with your family. The cabin is large and roomy with plenty of room for multiple families. The Property manage is very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed how close to the lake and store the cabin was. You are only 5 mins to the lake and Strawberry. Sonora is a short drive if you need larger stores and old town is a great place to take your family. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to relax and enjoy there vacation.
