Come enjoy a relaxing vacation in the amazing town of Groveland, just outside of Yosemite! Our family's lake house has an open floor plan and is located in the gated community of Pine Mountain Lake. We enjoy sharing it with the AirBnb community so that others can visit Yosemite and enjoy the great outdoors like we do! The lake it is a short walk to Dunn Court Beach.

We have a fully stocked kitchen, high speed WiFi, cozy beds, inside laundry, and large deck with partial lake views and BBQ.

The space

Buttercup Cabin features cabin chic decor, comfort, and smart "connected" appliances, which make for a great getaway. We recently made some upgrades to the home that we hope you enjoy. If you're looking for a convenient location for your Yosemite trip, a relaxing stay at PML, a fun trip at the lake, a golf vacation, or even a quiet work destination, this is your place.

We can accommodate 7 guest, but only have beds to sleep 6 comfortably. We are happy to accommodate 7 if necessary but guests need to be ok to sleep on a couch or the reclining chair. All beds and the fold out are made fresh before check-in with clean sheets.

Buttercup Cabin is a fully furnished and well equipped home with everything you will need. We even have a smart Nest thermostat and carbon monoxide/smoke detector to make your stay safe, comfortable, and easy.

The cabin is located only 3 short minutes to one of the 3 PML main beaches (Dunn Court). You can walk right down and never have to worry about parking. Water taxis are also available to take you over to the Cafe where you can get a delicious meal or take advantage of the awesome water rentals at the Marina (kayak, canoe, paddle boards, paddle boats, fishing boat, etc.).

Pine Mountain Lake also includes other great amenities like horse stables, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, hiking, community pool, private airport and fine dining. (Prior to booking please check the Pine Mountain Lake Association website for rules and restrictions regarding all amenities!)

I stayed their beautiful house only one night, but the experience was so great and special that our friends were excited. One of the most impressive things was the morning view from their patio. You can see a beautiful lake from there. Also, their hospitality was nice. I had a trouble with check-in when we arrived and called Kristen, but she was kind and let me make clear (although I was a little impolite without greeting by phone because I was upset). If I had to request anything for further improvements, I would want to know about $27 of the Lake Park entrance fee and no service of the mobile network in the area before completing a booking, while they were tiny things. Anyway, I recommend their house to enjoy your stay.

My family & I spent our Thanksgiving here at Buttercup Cabin. We had a lovely time. Kristen & Shane were great host. Super responsive & helpful. It was nice that there were extra blankets, pillows, games, DVDs, coffee+coffee maker, cups, plates, & kitchen utensils available. The house got cold at night, but there's a thermostat to adjust the temperature, which was convenient. There's a lake right next to the cabin where we were able to catch amazing sunrises & sunsets. The house has a balcony as well where you can see the stars at night. The house is a lot more roomy than what we expected. It is also very close to Yosemite(about an hr away). Because we were in a gated community, we felt safe. We wish we could've stayed longer. The only downfall was that there was hardly any reception, but we didn't want to be bothered by anyone anyway. A fantastic place to stay for a peaceful getaway! Would definitely come back again & would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic place! We loved the quiet getaway and the convenient access to so many great places to hike and relax. Kristen and Shane were great, very communicative, and went out of their way to make sure we had a nice stay. Would definitely come here again for my next Yosemite trip.

The cabin was very cozy with all amenities well maintained and in great condition. It is located about an hour away from Yosemite (1.5hrs from Glacier point). Everything was exactly as described and shown in the pics. Kristen and Shane were very responsive and accommodating. Would definitely recommend overall for anyone planning a trip overnight to Yosemite.

Great location not too far from Yosemite and near a groceries store, few restaurants and a pub. The house is quite, specious and clean and the town atmosphere is perfect. Would definitely recommend for the nights before/after a trip to Yosemite!

Shane and Kristen love to travel! They have a bucket list of destinations that they can't wait to see and never pass up an opportunity to go on vacation. For this reason, they love sharing their home with others so they too can explore new places and live like a local.
