About Debi and Vineet Gupta
We're a family of 4 who looks for fun & yet relaxing vacation spots. We came to Pine Mountain Lake during our own VRBO experience in 2013. Pine Mountain Lake has so many amenities that we all can enjoy. We knew we needed to be a part of this great community and we're so glad we did!

Why Debi and Vineet Gupta chose Groveland
We chose this location because within a few hours we are out of the hustle & bustle of the bay area and into the peaceful retreat of the mountains. There is so much to do here that satisfies all of us, golfing, the lake, the stables and of course Yosemite along with all the other historical surrounding areas.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our Pine Mountain Hideaway is just that. A Hideaway to enjoy the mountains and all the amenities that Pine Mountain Lake has to offer. We like to think that we have provided our guests with all the comforts one would expect in a home away from home. We hope you find it relaxing and enjoyable.

Short but Sweet
Very comfortable and attractive property in a pleasant environment
Great for Yosemite trip
Came for 4 night stay to Groveland as starting point to Yosemite. Property is as expected, a little dated but clean and extremely well-equipped and organized. It was so nice to be able to use beach, lake and pool amenities. Would definitely stay again!
Well Thought Out
Not only is this a great location for a visit to Yosemite the house was the most well thought out rental I’ve ever seen. From the kitchen stocked with more than just essentials (including coffee and filters) to beach towels and coolers for day trips. Most of the outlets and lamps even have integrated USB ports to keep all of your devices charged! The neighborhood itself is nice too - I was able to play pickleball with the local group one morning and we spent a whole day at the beach which was a surprisingly great “off” day from the park.
Visiting Yosemite Park
Thank you Debi and Vineet for sharing your house with us. We really enjoyed the spacious living room, the game room for the kids, the kitchen with all necessary amenities, and last but not least the huge deck with a gorgeous view overlooking Yosemite Park. The kids really enjoyed the swimming pool that was less than five minutes walking distance.
Nice house, nice neighborhood, but not treated as though we fully belonged in the neighborhood.
The house was very well furnished, with nice furniture, a very nice view of the mountains from the front deck, nicely-appointed kitchen, very nice washer and dryer set, and overall very comfortable and clean. The front deck had an incredible view of the mountains, only partially obstructed by power lines across the street, and the deck had a lot of loose screws and popped up boards, and needed some basic TLC. There was a single central AC/heat system in the house which worked fine at night and on cooler days, but on hot sunny days it became quite hot upstairs due to radiant heating from the roof--we chose to open the upstairs windows and door and blow cooler air into the house using a fan vs. running the window-banger AC. An attic fan to pull cooler air up from downstairs might make more sense.
Good location: The property was convenient to grocery, pool, and lake, and about 1.25hrs drive from Yosemite valley.
Nice neighborhood: The neighborhood pool and lakefront were very festive on hot afternoons, and the neighbors that we talked to at the pool and lakefront were nice.
Unpublished neighborhood rules: We booked this property roughly 9 months prior to travel, and were told 1 week before that it is in a gated community with a $31 weekly guest fee, entrance through only the main gate, and preference for neighborhood amenities (pool and lakefront) given to residents. Unfortunately we were told upon entry that (1) we would be asked to leave the pool in lieu of owners if the pool reached capacity and (2) that we had to park on the street at the lakefront because the parking lot was reserved for owners. They still liked our money at the lakefront concession. Overall it wasn't a big deal, but would have been nice to know these "rules" at time of booking.
Limited wifi: We were also told a week before arrival that the wi-fi is not unlimited and that we would be charged $10/GB for every day which we use more than 4GB. Telling our teen and tween that they couldn't stream any shows or movies for a full week was painful. The selection of DVDs was extensive but targeted to younger children.
Four mod's would make this perfect IMHO (1) disclosing the neighborhood issues up front, (2) some TLC on the front deck (3) a better wifi data policy or service and (4) a better solution for the temp difference between up and downstairs.
Not to dwell on the negative, we did really enjoy our time at this house, and would definitely come back!
Amazing Pine Mountain Location
Lovely property in an amazing location. 30 mins from Yosemite. Communication with owners leading up to booking time was very helpful. Would recommend this property as a perfect place to stay.
