Clean two bedroom, two bath home with lots of light, and windows looking out on the forest. Sleeps 7. Perfect for a couple or family, with both ready access to outdoor activities and relaxing spaces inside and out.
My house is in the Sierras at 4000 elevation off highway 88. It is 40 minutes west of Kirkwood Ski Area, 2 1/2 hours east of Oakland, Ca, 2 1/2 hours from Yosemite, and 1 1/2 hours from South Lake Tahoe.

The space
This is a modern two bedroom, two bath home on 3 acres at 4000 feet elevation, nestled in the pine and cedar forest, perfect for a quiet getaway or as home base for local adventures. The house is flooded with light and views of the outdoors.

The main floor has the master bedroom with both a queen and twin bed. The bathroom has both tub and shower. Downstairs you'll find a large bedroom with two queen sized beds and a full bath.

The kitchen is a pleasure to cook in, fully stocked with everything you'll need (including gas stove, electric oven, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker) Some condiments, spice and teas are available for your use, and the corner store is in walking distance if there's something more you need. There's a full service IGA grocery store only a 5 minute drive down the road.

The open floor plan on the main floor makes the living are comfortable and spacious, with a recliner couch and lovely gas fireplace - perfect for those cold nights! If you prefer electronic entertainment, there is wifi and a small TV with a Roku player with Netflix.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the dining area has a nice wood expandable table that can seat as many as 10. This is also handy for playing games or doing puzzles! The french doors lead out onto the large front deck, and the wall of windows makes this a lovely seating area.

Outdoors, there is huge front deck with table and chairs and two popup hammocks. The back deck has a compact gas grill for BBQ.

Central heating keeps the house warm, with a wall heater to add supplemental warmth to the downstairs. Since summers can be warm up here, there is a Swamp cooler in the living room and ceiling fans for your comfort.

After teaching gymnastics for 30 years I'm now working as a massage therapist. Parker the poodle and I have enjoyed hiking, skiing, bird (and squirrel!) watching in the mountains above Pioneer for many years.
