This beautiful 1500 sq. ft. house on one secluded acre is surrounded by majestic cedars and views of snow-capped mountains in the distance. Perfect for families, it has all the luxuries, including a pool table. A great base for day trips to Yosemite, Tuolumne Meadows, Lake Don Pedro, Sierra rivers, and Gold Country mining towns.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with a BBQ and outdoor dining on the spacious deck. The master bedroom has a king bed, and the second bedroom has a rustic custom-made double over queen bunk bed. There are sofabeds in both the family room and rec room. We even provide your linens.
During the winter, the house is below the snow line, so you don't have to worry about getting in or out. Drive to the snow if you like, or stay and play golf or tennis, or just relax.
At this cabin you can truly unwind. Watch the deer wander by and enjoy the smell of the cedars and the views of nothing but trees and sky.
The house is located within the gated community of Pine Mountain Lake. Pine Mountain Lake also offers a premier championship Gold Country Golf Course. It is available for public play and tournaments. After a long day on the greens, everyone can enjoy the Country Club Restaurant and Lounge since they are open to the public. Other activities include tennis courts, a heated swimming pool, a full-service Equestrian Center that offers trail rides, special excursions, play days, and children’s horse camps, along with total care stalls, corrals, and paddock rentals for your horse. The Equestrian Center is open to the public.
Discover Pine Mountain Lake!: Many of our facilities including our 18 hole Championship Golf Course, Restaurant & Lounge, Stables and Campground are open to the public. We are a unique private community close to Yosemite National Park, nestled into the natural landscape of the pines, oaks and mountains of Tuolumne County, Groveland, CA.
Pine Mountain's lake consists of 202 surface acres with 6 miles of it being shoreline. Enjoy the lake from one of three swimming beaches, picnicking and fishing areas. They are the Main Marina, Dunn Court Beach, the Lake Lodge and from Fisherman’s Cove (fishing only). A water taxi shuttle operates between the four locations during the summer. Animals in the lake include: Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Crappie, Blue Gill, Red Ear Perch, Crayfish, fresh water jelly fish, frogs and turtles. Other wildlife in the area includes Deer, Gray Squirrels, Raccoons, Skunk, Possum, Mountain Lion, Bear and various birds, including bald eagles.
The cabin was incredible spacious and comfortable. I would have rated this location a 5 star if it wasn't for the drive way. The drive way is steep and unless you are driving a pick up truck or suv your vehicle is sure to scrape the driveway. We put boards down to drive over to help the car not scrap along the driveway. The drive to Yosemite was a little long but the scenery was beautiful.
Great location with just half an hour drive to the Yosemite entrance or just relax by the Pine Mountain Lake. The house is generally in good condition, especially the deck. Definitely worthy spending hours there. The driveway is too steep for our minivan though.
It was great relaxing in the treetops, literally, on the deck. Our high school-age and college-age kids enjoyed playing pool and heading to the lake to swim. We spent a day hiking in Yosemite, before heading back to Treetops when the park got crowded. Spent the evening grilling steaks and enjoying the fresh air.
Great place to stay when visiting Yosemite. Even through is an hour drive from the park, it's a beautiful drive. The property is very well equipped, and clean.
The house is pretty cool, Treetops is a perfect name. The deck off the living room is surrounded by trees with no houses in site. It's incredibly private in a development of about 3000 houses. We used the house as base for touring Yosemite. It's about an hour from the Big Oak Flats entrance to the park.
The house is great and I would recommend it but there are a couple of things that you could view as shortcomings. The driveway is extremely steep, we bottomed out our rental car every time we pulled in. If you have a high clearance vehicle (our a rental car you don't worry too much about) you'll be fine
The kitchen was clean and organized but lacking some basics, there's no serving dishes or storage containers to speak of and we could have used a vegetable peeler. Maybe there was one and previous renters had tossed it.
There's really only basic cable and the DVD library could use a few more movies but the TV wasn't really why we stayed there. The WiFi was plenty fast for our needs.
The beds were comfortable, the hot water was abundant, the washer and dryer were convenient, all the things I look for in a rental.
We enjoyed our four-day honeymoon stay at this home near Yosemite (about a 1/2 to 45 minute drive to the actual park entrance). This home, compared to others within Pine Mountain, is secluded. While there are houses nearby, they are not as close to other houses as in other areas of Pine Mt. When you are out on the wrap-around deck all you can see are trees. We used the gas grill several times. One time was for awesome steaks bought at the local grocery store not too far from Pine Mountain entrance.
The couch in the living room is awesome. It is sooo comfortable after our long hikes during the day as we went sightseeing in Yosemite. The gas fireplace kept us warm. The television kept us occupied as we vedged on the couch after a long day walking. There were deer everywhere in Pine Mountain. For example, we saw a group of five deer sitting in a driveway one morning. That was not uncommon.
The kitchen has the minimum of what you need. We found salt, pepper, pots, pans. We even found a small cooler to use during our daily treks and we would pack sandwiches or cheese and crackers.
The pool table was soo much fun, except watch out. A few of the pockets need to be repaired as they have holes in them and the balls would fall out. We could not find the dart board.
Groveland is a quaint little town and we enjoyed a burger at the Iron Door Saloon one night. That is a must place to visit! The grocery store has everything you need for cooking at home.
I must say, Yosemite National Park is the prettiest place I have ever visited. The fall leaves were sooo beautiful and we got our wish and got to see some snow. Tioga Pass and Glacier Point Road were closed the first two days we were there because of snow and ice, but finally opened in time for us to use both and what a beautiful ride on both roads.
I would recommend this home away from home if you want seclusion and a nearby gateway to Yosemite National Park. It is also not too far from other state parks. We spent a day at Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
