Modern home w/ game room, shared pool, lake access, near Yosemite!

Come for a memorable vacation at this home in Groveland, CA. With nearby lake access, a game room with a Ping-Pong table and more, and access to community amenities including a swimming pool, this three-story house has accommodations for up to eight guests to enjoy!

Located in the quiet Pine Mountain Lake community, you'll enjoy on-site horseback riding, golf, pool, shared tennis courts, and myriad hiking trails through the forest. This is a great place to stay for a visit to Yosemite National Park, which is only 25 miles away.

The house itself is bright and comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Grab a seat on one of the couches in the living room to get comfy with a book, or turn on the cable TV to watch a DVD or VHS with the family. This home also offers wireless Internet so you can stay connected. Better yet, the collection of board games is a great alternative for family bonding.

Around the corner, the fully equipped kitchen lets you cook whatever your heart desires, and a dishwasher makes clean-up easy. Six will fit around the dining table for dinner, and you can always make room for a couple extra chairs.

Out the sliding glass doors, you'll find a large deck with a gas grill, patio table, and furniture for sitting out and enjoying the sounds of nature and the smell of the fresh pine breeze. At night, head down to the gravel patio to enjoy ghost stories and s'mores around the outdoor firepit (be sure to check out the stars).

Downstairs is a large game room that will provide entertainment for hours. Here, you'll enjoy a pool table, Ping-Pong table, foosball, and a dart board. A den upstairs provides a nice sanctuary for getting work done or just relaxing in quiet. Also, a table here makes for a great place to play poker!

Four bedrooms and two full baths make this home suitable for up to eight travelers. One bedroom has a queen bed with access to the deck, and the second and third bedrooms feature two twin beds. A shared full bath is easily accessible by both rooms. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a king-size bed, dual bedside lamps, and a full private bath.

A private washer/dryer are available for any laundry you need freshening up, and central A/C keeps the house comfortable in the heat of summer.

This house is perfect for a family or a group of friends - Pine Mountain Lake offers a ton of activities in its beautiful, wooded landscape, such as fishing, swimming, and boating on the community lake (though please note that motorized boats are not allowed and that guests must rent from the marina). You might go horseback riding at the equestrian center, or play a round of golf.

Nature enthusiasts should make a visit to Yosemite National Park a priority - the edge of the park is only a 25-mile drive away, and around the park you can see stunning viewpoints, learn about the natural history of the park at the museum, and witness the towering presence of the Giant Sequoias in Tuolumne Grove. Your home is so close, you'll be able to make it back by dinner! And for even more activities Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is 54 miles away and Black Oak Casino is just 28 miles away.

Whatever you have planned for your next vacation, you'll be able to do it all here - book today!

* Please be aware that cell phone reception is very spotty in this area, and that guests must purchase a parking pass at a rate of $27 per vehicle. Thank you!

    Beautiful place to spend vacation days

    This house is great, everything that you could possibly need. A very spacious home with a great set up, allowing you to have a very relaxing stay. We have rented several homes within this resort community and this home has been our favorite by far!

    I stayed for my birthday with my family, this was a remote cabin, i loved the fire pit the house size, the wifi was pretty slow but it helped us enjoy family time and the outdoors more and disconnect from the world for a couple days. The lake stores were closed so we're routes to yosemite but the town was charming, overall so much to do in the house and it's close to town would definitely stay here again it was amazing!

    Home was lovely. We had 7 of us there and there was not enough toilet paper for our 5 day stay. The driveway was incredibly steep— I would hate to try it in rainy or frosty conditions. Price was great.

    We were four adult couples renting this house and the place really isn't set up for all adults. I do think the description of the property is misleading. There aren't actually four bedrooms, the fourth bedroom is really an open space with no door so there is absolutely no privacy--and that space has bunk beds! Also to get to the third bedroom in the basement you have to walk through the bunk bed area. We were willing to deal with single beds for such a reasonably-priced place but we weren't expecting this arrangement. Would be better for families with kids. Otherwise the place was fine, a broken chair on the deck and a broken chair in the living room but it was clean and the lake was nearby and nice. It is also over 1.5 hours to Yosemite valley within the park.

    Great location! Nice, clean and guests friendly environment. Great game room that we enjoyed!

    This house is pretty private with all the tall trees around with the nearest neighbor maybe 100 yards away. It has a great gas grill on the deck for BBQ's. The game room kept us busy for a while. Yosemite was amazing!!!

    The house was awesome. My sister fell in love with it. everything is in tip top shape and would recommend to any family of 8 or less. only one caution, look out for that drive way with a steep grade. a little challenging if you are driving a large SUV or VAN.

    The house was all we hoped for; comfortable, efficient and homey. The parking will get interesting in bad weather but for us it was great. Be aware there are steep entrance/exit but with care all should go smoothly.
    Plan your trip, check the road conditions and have a great time.

    We had a great time staying in this vacation home. There was plenty of room for two families. It was nice having a whole downstairs for the kids. The house was clean bright and beautiful inside And out. We will definitely be coming back!

    Great experience

  • Great Escape Cabin (08/253)

    Laura R.September 2016

    We had a great time. With 5 teenagers the game room was great. Plenty of room for all of us. Had 8 total.
    Visited rainbow pools only 15 min away and had a great day. Next day did Yosemite all day.
    Some down falls.
    1. Outside fire pit not so good. But prob because of forest fires.
    2. Do not like having to make beds once I get there. Sheets.
    3. No extra garbage bags
    But I would go again. Loved the house.,

    Lovely, spacious property with access for children to lake beach, fishing. Yosemite within day excursion.
    Summer so hot,difficult to cool home in 98 degree weather. No cell service so have to go into town to find 'hot spot'. No viable access to local property management in case of emergencies.

    Amongst the best rental ever. This place was fabulous. Games, views, rooms, bedrooms, BBQs, utensils - all very clean - it was perfect. All so very close to Yosemite. We hope to be back very soon.

    My husband noted the attention to detail as though every amenity available at the house is all we could possibly desire. We loved the availability of books to read, games to play, DVD’s to watch, all of the game tables downstairs and even flashlights and s’mores roasters for the fun fire pit in the back. We loved our stay. The property is only 4 minutes from the lake and 20 minutes from Rainbow Pools which looks like a mermaid lagoon. The more daring members of our family enjoyed jumping into the pool from the cliffs above the waterfall.

    I was lucky to rent this house for the second year in a row. It's a great value: the kids had the best time as well as adults. Will recommend it in a heartbeat.

    Great property and amenities especially if you plan on traveling with kids. There are a lot of games to keep them entertained while at home and the lake that is about 5 minutes of a drive away is very charming. Depending on what time you leave the cabin, Yosemite is about 45 minutes - 1 hour of a drive away

    This is a beautiful home and has been updated nicely. Kids enjoyed the game room and horseshoes. It is spread over 3 levels which would be great for bigger families, however may be tough if your wanting to keep your kids on the same floor. Home had everything we needed.
