Located at 5,600 foot level, our mountain home provides a nearby destination with a quiet and remote atmosphere. Pine Mountain Club has a true four-season mountain climate, and is a perfect year-round destination for a getaway! (Additional photos are always available upon request!)

Located on a nice, QUIET street yet a few minutes from the Village and clubhouse, our home is three-stories, has a light and airy feeling with its vaulted ceiling, wet bar, wood fire place, sleeps UP TO eight (8) - three bedrooms (a new king size bed and a large walk-in closet, two twin beds, and a new queen bed) and two and quarter baths, a game room w/air hockey, table tennis, wood burning stove, and sofa (full size) bed.

Sorry, we cannot accommodate more than eight (8) occupants at any time.

Our home is beautifully decorated with a mix of modern and antique furnishings by Sigrid Insull acclaimed interior designer and contains up scale amenities (we offer popcorn maker, bottles of water, bathrooms with custom soaps, lotions, organic hand sanitizers & fluffy towels, coffee, hot chocolate, teas, Keurig coffemaker and variety of Kcups), in addition to snow blower w/electric starter.

Our home is VERY clean and comfortable (2200+ square ft) with unobstructed mountain views. Our deck faces east affording stunning sunrises.

We are in the Los Padres National Forest - wildlife (deer, bobcat, fox, bunnies, squirrels, quail, dove, stellar and scrub jays) abounds. Sledding awaits at Mt. Pino's (8300' - 8800') just 15-20 minutes away, GREAT for cross-country skiing and snow-play destination!

While our roads are well-maintained, area CHP require that you carry chains (or have a 4x4 vehicle) when snow is possible. Links to Pine Mountain Club and Weather Conditions below give a detailed outlook on this special community.

If you are looking for a close, relaxing, year-round getaway, and appreciate a clean and upscale home, we welcome you. Attention has been paid to EVERY detail in our home, and we offer amenities not typical of most vacation rentals here on the Mountain!

Wonderful place to stay at

  • 5 of 5

My party and I had the most pleasant time at this place. The property was clean, well maintained and had all the amenities we needed to have a luxury accommodation. Bedding was very comfortable and we couldn't ask for anything more. I would come back here and recommend it to my friends.

Great House in the Moutains for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had parents, kids, brother & wife, and even in-laws came over during the days. Great family room, kitchen, and fireplace to enjoy family time. Great hiking, especially "Enchanted Forest". This house has everything, and the owners know what guests need/want to enjoy a carefree vacation.

Beautiful view, tasteful decor, open space, and lot's of stairs.

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. With 7 guests everybody had a comfortable place to sleep and plenty of room to move about without bumping into each other. The balcony had a beautiful view while you BBQ with their provided propane tank and grill. There's a nice bar to make cocktails and plenty of seats to lounge and socialize in. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook any kind of meal you want. We brought food for the weekend so we were surprised to see that the fridge had already been stocked with food. We weren't sure who's food it was, but we managed to fit our food in there as well.

There were temperature differences throughout the house going from down stairs to up stairs but it wasn't something that a sweater can't fix. Also, when the pre-set heater manages to do it's thing, you don't notice it at all.

Just to let you know, as someone who is at sea level or below for the majority of the year, the altitude plus the flights of stairs going up and down from the game room to the kitchen is exhausting. But that's just me.

All in all it was a wonderful stay, any issues we had with the place were minor and brought to the attention of the owner. The owners are kind and quick to respond to communication. I'd recommend this property to my closest friends.

Very nice home in pine mountain

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice home in a quiet area in pine mountain. House is clean and well organized. Little things like fancy lotions in the bathroom made my day. You truly feel at home in this lovely cabin. If planning to visit my pinos you should know that it's about a 40 minute drive. Overall great place!
