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.

Diane purchased this house in 2001

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.

For the past eleven years, our family gets together for an annual vacation and this house has been the best by far! Enough room for all (9 adults and 6 children), beautiful weather and fabulous lake front location. The kids occupied the downstairs suite while the adults relaxed upstairs. This awesome house has niches for tv watching, reading or napping. That is of course when we weren't swimming, canoeing or cruising in the paddleboat. The gated community gave an added sense of security and we enjoyed all the local ammenities. See you next year as we have already made our reservations!!
Owner's Response: Hi Tami-
We are looking forward to seeing you very very soon!. We put in some new beach area sand and added some new chairs...all ready for you to do some relaxing and swimming!

We were so happy with our stay at this beautiful property at Lake of the Pines. I too grew up on a lake and knew how relaxing and enjoyable life on a lake could be. We were not diapppointed. Everything at this house is 6 star.I gathered my children and grandchildren there for our annual reunion. From the description we thought it was too good to be true but it is true.
We found the house in beautiful conditon when we arrived. It was welcoming and immaculate. We especially liked the fact that the full, unobstructed view of the lake was available from so many vantage points inside and outside the house. Having the canoe and paddle boat availabe is a big plus. We liked having access to the community pool also. All the amentities(too many to mention) are A-1. From making the arrangements to collecting our deposit at the end, this is a first class operation.
Thanks for making this such an exceptional place to vacation. We will be back next year!

I can't say enough good things about this beautiful
lake house. It is so great that we've stayed there
more than once. The house is large with lots of
room to entertain and feed our group of 8. Roomy
and comfortable bedrooms and enough bathrooms,
unlike some places we've stayed.

Incredible lake views are seen from the whole back
of the house, including the huge deck, the 2 family
rooms, master, one bedroom, and the kitchen. And
because the house is nestled in a cove with a
south-facing view, both sunrises and sunsets are

We loved the automatic fireplace. It's near the
window overlooking the lake and makes a great
place to sip morning coffee or evening drinks if
you're there in the chilly weather. On our summer
trip, coffee and drinks were always on the deck. :-)

The more energetic of our group played tennis and
golf or rode bikes. The more laid back enjoyed the
lake, reading, and just relaxing in the quiet that we
never have at our house in the city.

The owners were very accommodating and easy to
work with, too.

And, so much to see and do nearby! Check out

Nearby Nevada City and Grass Valley have an
atmosphere of the
old west mixed with wine bars, cappucinnos, and
unique shopping.

Over 20 wineries within short driving distance. On
a sunny Fall afternoon, we wine-tasted our way
through beautiful seasonal colors to several
delightful wineries where friendly and attentive
proprietors gave us generous samples.

Quaint Old Town Auburn has lots of interesting
shops and good restaurants. We liked Bootleggers
Tavern and Grill. Our group sipped cocktails and
beer at a charming, mahogany bar while waiting for
a table -- great prime rib and other more eclectic

The Apple Hill orchards area in Placerville is about
an hour from the house. It makes a great day trip -
- over 50 orchards featuring apple ciders/pasteries,
rustic eateries, petting zoos, events, and many fun
distractions for the kids (including a hog as big as
a barn!)

Skiing at Sugar Bowl an hour away.

As you can probably tell, my family and I *really*
enjoyed our visit to this great lake house. I highly
recommend it.

This is a tranquil setting - an apropos name (Tranquility Cove). We've enjoyed the view - coffee in the morning on the deck and cocktails in the evening on the pier.

We purchased some fishing gear and the young ones were delighted with their catches. The paddleboat and canoe were also high on their favorite list. We all made good use of the tennis courts and golf course.
