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.
