BEFORE YOU USE "INSTANT BOOK" PLEASE INQUIRE FIRST, WE HAVE RESTRICTIONS ON STAYS. THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. If you are looking for a serene quiet place of rest with family and friends, then this is your house. We have zero tolerance for loud guests. We respect our neighbors. We suggest that guests purchase travel insurance. Due to COVID, we will not be able to offer linens or towels until further notice.

The space
Come visit our 4000+ sq.ft. Lake Front Lodge, AKA Pine Mountain Yosemite Lake Lodge - private/gated community, golf course, tennis, boating activities, swimming, skiing, hiking, about 25 minutes to Yosemite Park entrance. Our home is not only for families but also for church retreats/groups and business team-building retreats. Over the years, we have hosted many churches and Silicone Valley companies such as eBay, Tesla, and more. We offer a unique place of gathering with multiple areas to split off into smaller groups or come together as an entire group.

There are three stories and a loft on the fourth story.

Main floor (second floor)--One lakeside guest bedroom with a queen bed, one bedroom with two twin bunk beds (4 twins) and a pullout twin mattress under the bunk, a full bathroom, main living room with fireplace, dining/kitchen area, main deck for entertaining and eating with an oversize table, firepit, BBQ and an outside extra refrigerator. (You enter the front door from the driveway with one step into the main floor, which is the second floor of the house.)

Top Floor (third floor)--Second living room with sofa, chairs, TV, and deck with chairs; a master bedroom suite with a queen bed and one pull out twin mattress under the bed and master bedroom deck with chairs and table; two more bedrooms with one queen bed each; two full bathrooms; with a small seating area between the bedrooms and full bathroom.

Loft Room (fourth floor)--this room has two queen beds, two twins, and one spare twin mattress under a twin bed. The upper loft may also be unavailable due to the COVID Virus and depending on the size of your group and the paid amount of your reservation.

Bottom Floor (first floor)--Full bathroom with laundry facilities, family room with TV, oversize sectional sofa, pool table, game table, outdoor patio area with a table that leads by access steps to the dock, the deck on the lake, and the lake.

One of the unique aspects of our home is that there are so many special places for people to retreat to for privacy. Although your family or group may be large, one can get away to all the nooks of our home/property from the two living rooms, family room, hall game area, the two small private decks as well as the large deck, the patio area, and the dock deck, the loft, the window bench seat, and the dock itself. We also live on a one-way road, quiet, off the main road, that makes a large circle which is perfect for a good solid walk up some hills and back down, another way to grab some quiet time. Being with family and friends is important and rewarding but it is also important to have some separation which can aid small important talks and times of reflection while being with those you most care about.

Being a lakefront house also has its wonderful benefits...just a short walk to the dock and a short walk to the Marina where one can play in the sand, swim, play volleyball, order ice cream, and other goodies, as well as rent boats of all kinds which are perfect for kids and teenagers who can get restless being at a house all day. And since the Marina is near, parents can keep close tabs on teens and older children who venture out without adults (we recommend bringing walkie talkies as that works well with our kids).

If the internet is important for your group, we have gone the extra mile to get super FAST Business/Commerical internet service with a large data package (data usage is restricted). This internet is perfect for streaming movings, company meetings, and the like. You will enjoy wifi throughout the entire house.

Guest access
As guests to Pine Mountain Lake, you will have the opportunity to enjoy all the amenities that Pine Mountain Lake is known for from swimming and boating, to golfing, horseback riding, and tennis. There is also a fishing hole (you can fish right off our dock as well), an airport, and a large pool. You may rent fishing, paddle, or sailboats, kayaks, and paddleboards at the Marina by the hour or day. During the summer season we do provide a canoe, 2 Kayaks, and 2 Paddleboards that are used at your own risk. Boat rentals are seasonal and available on specific holiday weekends so please check with Pine Mountain Lake Marina if you are visiting anytime other than June to August if you are interested in boating. Pine Mountain Lake does not allow guests to bring their own boats to the lake including kayaks and canoes. If you have a ski boat, you may bring it but you will need to drive to Don Pedro Lake for skiing and setting it in the water which is located down the grade, about a 25-minute drive from the house.

All areas of our home are accessible except for the garage and storage areas. The upper loft may also be unavailable due to the COVID Virus and depending on the size of your group and the paid amount of your reservation.

Pine Mountain Lake Association charges each guest a one-time vehicle entrance fee of $29 per vehicle (amount subject to change). The security entrance is staffed 24 hours a day. Please pay the attendant upon your arrival. Upon confirmation of your reservation, we will ask for a list of all people staying in our home along with their ages. We need this information so that we can register all guests with the Pine Mountain Lake security office. No person(s) will be permitted without us authorizing their entrance.

Other things to note
Pine Mountain Lake is a private and gated community with quiet hours between 7 pm to 7 am. You are welcome to be outside after the hours of 7 pm to 7 am but we ask that you are respectful during these times. For example, it is okay to be out on the deck in the late evening enjoying the fire, talking with family and friends, etc., but it would not be okay to be yelling or playing loud music outside during quiet hours.

If you are interested in snow skiing, you may go to Badger Pass in Yosemite (one hour plus drive depending on weather) or to Dodge Ridge (45 minutes plus drive depending on weather).

We are on a one way street with a large area of greenbelt above our home. This one way street helps keep traffic to a bare minimum. Our neighborhood is also great for walking and jogging. I like to do what I call the "loop" which goes from our street, above us on the hill, and back down to the house.

During your stay
April is available by phone anytime and in-person for emergencies. We have been in the community since 1980 so we have access to many friends, neighbors, and tradesmen in the area that can assist us with any issues or concerns. We are just a 3 1/2 hour drive away and come up frequently in between reservations to clean and maintain our home. We are often present in the summer when guests check-in or check out so that we can assist you in questions. If you arrive at a time we cannot be there, or it is late in the evening, there is a combination lock on the front door which you will have access to once your reservation is finalized.
