Cozy chalet w/ game table, lake access, shared pool near Yosemite
Come for a memorable vacation in the woods at this Pine Mountain Lake home. Up to eight travelers will enjoy a short walk to the marina on the lake, a large deck for sunning, and access to community amenities like tennis, a seasonal pool, and golf.
Located in the peaceful Pine Mountain Lake community in Groveland, CA, you'll find relaxation easily among the trees, and have easy access to year round outdoor activities with Yosemite National Park just 25-miles away and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort just 55 miles away. The town of Groveland, known as the gateway to Yosemite, offers a surprising variety of restaurants as well as shops and other attractions to explore.
The house itself is homey, with a warm, cabin feel. On the main floor of this three-story house, you'll find the kitchen, living, and dining areas. Grab a seat on the couch in front of the stone hearth to get cozy with a book by the fire, or enjoy pleasant conversation. Alternatively, you might turn on the flatscreen cable TV to enjoy a DVD after a full day.
In the well-equipped kitchen, you'll find everything you need to make the perfect meal, including a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Everyone will fit around the dining table for dinner, but in nice weather, the deck will be calling!
A pair of long tables with plenty of chairs makes the deck ideal for any meal on a sunny day. Sit out here and enjoy the sounds of nature while you grill up something tasty on the gas barbecue!
Downstairs is a bonus room with a Ping-Pong table for friendly competition and another seating area with a flatscreen TV. This room will keep the kids occupied and give parents well-deserved peace and solitude.
Three bedrooms and three full baths make this home comfortable for up to eight guests. On the main floor are two bedrooms - one featuring a double bed, and the other with a queen bed. Upstairs is a loft with a sofabed, and the master bedroom, featuring a queen bed and a full private bath. A sofabed in the downstairs bonus room and a shared bath round out the house.
There is a private washer/dryer for any laundry you may need to do, and limited WiFi is available for basic browsing needs.
This house is perfect for a family or a few friends vacationing together - within walking distance is the lake marina, where you can rent nonmotorized boats and other gear for fun on the water. Go fishing, swimming, or canoeing on the lake. The community also offers shared tennis courts, a golf course, a seasonal swimming pool, and horseback riding along a network of hiking trails.
While you're in the area, a trip to Yosemite is called for! Drive 25 miles to the edge of the park, or 50 miles to stand in the Valley with towering cliffs all around you. You can drive or hike up to Glacier Point for a breathtaking view, and stop by the museum to learn about the remarkable history and how Yosemite was formed. If you have time, stop by the Giant Sequoia Grove to feel dwarfed by living giants. Then head back for dinner and a comfy night's sleep in your vacation home! And if you're in the mood for something different, do a little gaming at Black Oak Casino, 28 miles north of you.
Your next vacation will be even better than you hoped with this comfortable home in Groveland - book today!

What we loved:
We loved that our 4 teens had enough space to spread out and give us some quiet. Kids room on bottom floor with ping pong tables, two couches and a tv with plenty of DVDs and games to keep them occupied. Even a 3rd bathroom down there with a shower. Loved how close to the marina this house is. Good value and easy to find from the entrance. Loved that everything worked. Loved that VACASA customer service was available and reliable when we called for information.
Some minor negatives:
Kitchen does not have any staples like salt, pepper, scissors, pen/paper. Towels and linens were very stiff and could be better stocked. They also seemed pretty old. The bedding could be updated, like 2 of the mattresses and mattress pads but these are minor and didn't take away from the quality of our stay. The couches were also a bit hard and uncomfortable but we didn't spend a lot of time on them anyway. The closest market, about 5 minutes away, has anything you need but it is pricey to us. For 6 of us, 3 nights, we ended up spending about $300 without purchasing any liquor.
We will definitely be staying here again when we come up next year. It was a great time and we felt very comfortable.
Hi Stacey, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

Nice place with adequate places to sleep for guest. Clean, easy to get around. Spacious deck for outside eating. A/C worked well which came in handy with high temps. Driveway was a bit of a challenge, but walking distance to marina was a perk.
Crystal H.Mar 2021
Plenty of room for the family! The beds were comfy and it comes with a grill. We had lunch outside on the patio and enjoyed the outside.
Ping pong table and tv in the basement area.
The only thing is you have to pay 40 dollars for parking even if you are visiting for a day and the drive way was a pain trying to get my car up the hill.
Otherwise we really liked it.
Yurgis B.Sep 2020
Walking distance to the beach on a trail along the road. Parking lot is pretty changeable to drive into/out.
Robert M.Aug 2020
This is a very spacious cabin that is nicely clean. Lots of games and ping pong to keep you busy. Nice location, but an odd driveway to maneuver. Lots of stairs to get up there, but a nice porch to sit on and enjoy the fresh mountain air.
Bryan V.Jul 2020
I like the house because it was big and simple, there was enough room for me and my friends to move freely. The house had the essentials that are needed for every day use. Everyone liked the structure of the house, only that the master bedroom only has a tub to bathe, no shower, and the way to park, is a little weird but we worked with what we got. Overall we loved the experience and our stay.

Great house. Plenty of space for the whole family.
Helga S.Sep 2019
Is great, surrounded by nature, close to Yosemite, cosy house.
Jack R.Sep 2019
This home has everything you need in a vacation rental. We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Yosemite National Park. The host and home are both amazing!
Lori P.Sep 2019
Fit 7 of us comfortably

Camie H.Aug 2019
We loved the location and the ability to sleep our whole family. The carpet was gross, the boards of the deck are deteriorating, and the cabinets need some cleaning out.
Hi, Camie! Thank you for staying with us! The deck repairs are already in progress, and we have scheduled our carpet and deep cleanings now the busy summer season is over. We hope to see you again!
Paul L.Jun 2019
Clean, tidy and well equipped with a balcony, bbq and outdoor seating. 10 mins walk to the lake and all facilities. Good location in sunny pines. Approx 1 hour to Yosemite valley. Could maybe do with a little re-investment in mattresses, but overall very nice.
Hello Paul- Thank you for your feedback! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in the home. We have let the owners know about the mattresses and they will look into possibly getting new mattresses. Thank you, again!
Ana C.Apr 2019
The location was very convenient, next to Yosemite NP. House was nice.
jennifer T.Mar 2019
We loved how cozy and clean the house was, it has tons of room and plenty of sleeping areas. It had everything!
Manuel J.Feb 2019
Me encanto el lugar era la primera vez que fuimos nos encantó el espacio de las recámaras y todos lo que necesitamos ahí lo tenían todo yo lo recomiendo muchísimo mi familia quedo encantada y si quieren regresar para spring :)
David V.Aug 2018
We all loved this house. All was there ready to use, even stuff to go to the lake. The gas BBQ was very pleasant and our kids loved to find books and games in the play room.
Ann Catherine D.Jul 2018
This house was perfect! It had everything we wanted from the kitchen, to bedrooms to the cute beach and close enough to go to Yosemite! Loved it all!
Gregory R.Jul 2018
Space galore - 3 levels each with full bath means good zones for large and small groups. I thought the kids would be tired after Yosemite but they wanted to hit the pool - which is really nice!
David W.Jul 2018
This home had plenty of space. Beds on three levels. Nice game area, ping pong table. The outdoor tables on the deck would have been nice for grilling. View was pleasant out there, but unfortunately we didn't stay long enough for that. The upstairs is pretty warm, so best for cold-natured sleepers in the summer.
The community has a golf course and a lake with rentable kayaks, paddle boards, etc. Very nice, contained, gated community. The town outside the gate was fine, but not big and not many amenities - just basic grocery, pizza place, gas stations, and a few other diners/pubs.
Bruce L.Jun 2018
Trying to park and exit the driveway proved challenging. I saw my buddies vehicle making a turn on three wheels. The driveway is steep, narrow and requires sharp turns. I always had to make a three point to four point turn to get out.
Also items like towels, soap and TP were not stocked or where they should be.
zheng t.Apr 2018
the room is spacious and equipped with all the cook ware we could think of, perfect for family stay and really love the table tennis in the basement. the baby toys and games and nice DVD collections that keep everyone busy! only one thing is hope the mattress could be firmer
Richard A.Nov 2017
Plenty of room, a full kitchen (though not overly well-equipped). We enjoyed using the ping-pong table. As I mentioned above, be aware that the "45 minutes from Yosemite" means to the boundary - its another 45 minutes to the visitors' center.
Anthony C.Nov 2017
This was a great option for seven adults. It was cozy and spacious. It was a pleasure to hang out there at night after a day hiking. Would definitely use VACASA again for future trips to Yosemite and elsewhere.
Kerry C.Sep 2017
This cabin is beautiful and comfortable. Close to restaurants, shops, and Yosemite. Each morning deer would wander into the yard. At night we would rest our tired feet in a hot bath. Then we would have epic ping pong battles. The layout and decor of the cabin is perfect and left us feeling right at home. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
James B.Aug 2017
We really enjoyed the house. We used it as a base for trips to Yosemite. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes to the visitor center in Yosemite Valley, so you have to keep that in mind, but since it is on the way to SF it cut off the time on that end which was nice. The house was perfect for us. We had 6 people and had plenty of room, could easily have had a few more. I'm not sure if I would change anything. Groveland is a cute town, we would definitely come back.
Andrew Q.Aug 2017
We had a great time using this location as a base for visiting Yosemite. The house is quite large with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Mark R.Jul 2017
The house was clean and had more than enough room for our group of 7. Much bigger than it looked on-line. It was clean and convenient to the Park. Would highly recommend it.
Kathy K.Jul 2017
This vacation home was perfect for our trip to yosemite for some hiking. Very comfortablly accommodated 8 of us. Very clean and well maintained. Just one comment, the lake area (very beautiful), is about 1/2 mile from the house. The road is hilly,and no sidewalk so if you are walking cars are driving by. You will need to walk to lake area. Otherwise everything was just as pictured.loved this place!
Michelle L.Jun 2017
We enjoyed our stay here! Wished we stayed longer to visit the lake nearby.
Amber V.May 2017
Our family of 7 stayed three nights recently at this home and were very pleased with it. Everything was clean and well cared for, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pans, and dishes and we had a great time. The kids really enjoyed the ping pong table in the basement, and we appreciated the space to spread out across the house levels that the home afforded.
Rachel G.May 2017
Great house very large and perfectly clean. I recommend it !
Gabriel H.May 2017
Bonita experiencia la recomiendo
Sharon F.Mar 2017
Just about perfect. We did need kindling in order to start a fire and there wasn't any, so didn't use the fireplace. The entire home was very comfortable -- loved the rocking chair and foot stool in upstairs bedroom, also the glider in the loft. The paint colors were very nice, especially liked the faux painting in the downstairs bathroom. Lots of room, would be perfect for a family get together.
James O.Mar 2017
Nice place great time
DIEGO G.Mar 2017
Last minute booking for a nice two night getaway was easily set and confirmed through VRBO and Vacasa! House was very comfy and warm. Fireplace was handy though the heating worked well and kept us warm throughout the night. The kitchen was well stocked with all needed utensils as were towels and linens. Game room had some board games and the tv downstairs was nicer for watching movies. Ping pong table was fun though not used that much. Overall very nice for the price and would recommend and rent again.
Muliana T.Feb 2017
We stayed here for two nights during the winter. We were so surprised that the house is big enough for seven of us, because from outside looks like a tiny house. They make more rooms by having 3 stories. Our favourite is the ping pong room! We enjoyed it so much. Even though in the first night, the heater didn't work so we we're freezing to death. However, the next day they fixed it right away and even gave us three bottles of champagnes and a box of chocolate as the return.
Sreekanth Reddy B.Dec 2016
We are a party of 8 and we all enjoyed our stay in this chalet. The best part of the chalet I personally liked is the game room in the basement. The upstairs bedroom is very spacious and has a great view. The chalet has a nice fireplace and the living room is nice too.
Edith H.Oct 2016
We stayed with 2 other couples and really enjoyed the house. Our intent was to visit Yosemite and it was a great location for us, close enough and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. The Groveland grocery store had everything we needed and was very close. It would have been nice to spend time at the lake in the summer.
Cecilia C.Oct 2016
It was very homey. The whole house was outstanding. It was all wonderful. The lake and the pool were wonderful.
Jonathan M.Oct 2016
Tall, split level property. 3 floors, it's built on a steep slope so the top floor is not actually far off the ground at the back, and is still overlooked by houses further up the slope. It's also a bit gloomy, due to the steep slope at the back and the (admittedly lovely) pine trees overhead.
It's just a few metres up the steep driveway off the main pine mountain lake access road. Lots of stairs in the house, so not really appropriate for people with limited mobility. 50 miles to Yosemite valley. 3 bathrooms. It would easily accommodate 3 couples plus 2 children. Nice idea to have table tennis table on ground floor.
Very quiet indeed in the pine trees - probably not the best place to stay if you're easily spooked, or you like hustle and bustle around you! Well equipped kitched.
Amy V.Aug 2016
Great very roomy, with all cooking supplies needed
Svetlana K.Aug 2016
Enjoyed our stay, recommend to others
Irene B.Aug 2016
we'll definitely stay there again, plus sheets & towels were provided.
Loved our trip to Groveland/PML.
Madhumitha M.Aug 2016
Good location, very spacious, mostly clean
Inna K.Jul 2016
House location is just 6 minutes walk from main Marina. We never moved our car because location was so convenient. Good size house with challenging driveway for big cars. It is a bit outdated but the location and the view from the deck compensates for that.
Kelly K.Jul 2016
This was a great spot for a trip to Yosemite! My first time in the Pine Mountain Lake area. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a relaxing get-away in the Sierras. The house was perfect! Sitting out on the deck was a little noisy at times, but that didn't stop us from enjoying it. The house had everything you need for a comfortable stay. Wish we could've stayed an extra day!
