Above the Pines at Pine Mtn Lake
We are a family of five with three young children. Love outdoors including hiking, sports, fishing, beach days and hanging at the Lake. We live and work in the Central Valley California, however weekends we usually slip out of town if the kids aren't in sports.
Owner/Manager purchased this Cabin in 2015

Lots of room for 5 grand-kids
My wife and I and 5 of our grand-kids spent a week at this property. It has plenty of space for cooking, eating, playing games, watching movies together, but also, the upstairs downstairs both having family rooms allowed everyone to do their own thing as they wanted too. We spent time in Yosemite and on Lake Don Pedro, which were really great. Within the community the beaches and pool were good. Marcus was very responsive to the few questions we had, and is a great owner/manager. The house has a well stocked kitchen, is clean, has great decks for spending time relaxing with a great view, lots of bedrooms, baths, and plenty of room so we never felt crowded. The internet worked surprisingly well considering how far out we were. We would definitely go back again if we are in that area!
Very convenient to Yosemite. Great deck areas. Two living areas.
Thank for good preparation of the host
A great stay at Above the Pines
The house was very roomy for four adults, two preteens, young children and a newborn. The house provided us with everything we needed. A couple of minor things - the common bath shower upstairs could not be adjusted and the water was too hot for the kids. I wish there was more lighting downstairs especially above the table for games. The driveway gave me a heck of a time parking - I drove a Yukon Denali. Definitely should make the uturn and come back from the opposite side of the street. Got used to it after the third time. Lastly, make sure to follow the directions given by Marcus to reach the house. I passed by Pleasant View Drive on the second day and had to start all over at the gate. Very secure community which made me feel good. Laughed about it. Maybe a future remodel could include the driveway and the shower. Other than that, our stay was great. We saw deer in the backyard the afternoon we arrived and that made the kids super excited for the days ahead. Wish we were able to make use of the fire pit. Next time!
Wonderful Spring Break
Our family had a great time during Spring Break. The cabin was large enough for all of us to spread out and had all that we needed. We cooked breakfast & dinner every day and saved a ton on eating out. Thank you for sharing this cabin with us. We drove over to Yosemite Valley twice (took us about 45 minutes) The other day we hiked the Big Creek Trail (at the Pine Lakes community) and checked out the little town of Groveland. We highly recommend.
Fun for Families
This is our 3rd or 4th stay here. Our kids love coming here playing downstairs in the large family room and playing in the snow located in the back yard. We also like to make S’mores in the fit out. It’s close to Yosemite and there is a grocery store nearby that has everything you need at a reasonable price.
