What makes Lagunita Lake House special? The cabin was originally built in 1930; you can still see the logs they used to support the roof and the beautiful quartz fireplace that is the focal point in the cozy livingroom. It was updated in the 90's and received a fresh coat of paint last summer. There are actually 5 buildings on the property: Main Cabin, Bunkhouse#1, Bunkhouse#2, The Boat House,and The Garage. They all have a lot of charm and quaintness in their own way and they all have a Lakeside view. The most unique feature of 'Lagunita' is definetly the setting...It sit's upon a beautiful little lake in the heart of the Sierra Nevada...surrounded by old growth ceder, pine, and madrone trees. There is a waterfall on the right side of the cabin that run's year round, imagine yourself relaxing on the deck or in the hamock with the tranquil sound of the water steadily washing over the falls. A few steps off the back deck and your at the lake fishing, swimming,or paddling in paradise.

I wanted to connect and let you know that our stay at Lagunita was simply fantastic. The cabin(s) worked great for us and we loved the beautiful setting by the lake. We spent a lot of time on the dock, rope swing, paddling the canoe and some "kid-fishing". We managed to hike to University Falls and had a great time. It's both true that the hike is only moderately difficult AND is not exactly well marked. I would not recommend someone going out without a map or a stop at the ranger station. We felt fortunate for the good weather and ate on the deck every meal.It really is a beautiful place and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend others visiting. Thank you for sharing it with us.
